Does this make me look fat?

I hate to shop. Really I do. I'm the antithesis of the every day woman, like my sister, who can spend the day shopping.

I hate trying things on, especially since they often don't fit or look right on me. I'm the kind of gal who takes 20 things into the fitting room and walks out with one or two things. I don't go back out and try again. I'm done and I'm ready to go home.

Shopping for a new outfit for my blog is a lot more fun, because all I need to do is find a look that I like. Everything fits! And nothing shows my bumps and bulges. How cool is that?!

I am doing all I can to bring Spring. I really liked the old look, but it was kind of dark and wintery. Here's a new light, fresh and warmer look...at least I think so. I hope you like it, too!

Verrry nice.

I am with you on the shopping thing. I have three sisters and they are all about the shopping.

Me? Not so much.

Yay! A fellow non-shopper. I can shop for books or art supplies all day but clothes....I avoid it like the plague. And trying stuff on in the store--no way.

I HATE to shop! Really, really HATE to shop! I cannot go with anyone, because I have no patience! It's better if I KEEP my friends and go alone! haha!

I'm glad you all like the look! :)

And it's nice to hear that I'm not alone in the hating shopping thing.

I like to shop, but not for clothes. Well clothes for myself that is. I love to buy clothes for my children, but I dread having to go shopping for me. The worst is having to shop for a special occasion outfit. Terrible!

I love the new blog look, much easier than clothes shopping.

I hate trying on clothes too. I love the new blog layout too. I need to update mine to spring too.

I love the new look...and I don;t try anything on...lol...Princess thinks I ought to, and was horrified when I bought jeans the other day wihtout trying them on...but honestly Tombliboo (2) can not cope with shops for long ,and there is no way I would want to lock either me alone or both of us in a fitting room!

I figure I can return stuff if it's terribly wrong.
