Clothes Shopping

I have to buy clothes. This isn't a "I want to buy clothes so I'm going to justify it by saying I have to buy clothes" thing. No, I absolutely must buy clothes. I promised Evan over a month ago (ok, maybe two months now) that I would go get myself some clothes so I wasn't wearing the same 4 shirts and the same 2 pairs of pants to school every day. He even refused to buy what he needed until I had ordered mine and kept everything. Well, I got too busy to shop and I convinced him to go ahead and order what he needed and that's where it has stayed. His new jacket hangs on the hook and he's already worn his new dress shirt several times. Meanwhile, I put off buying clothes. Now, I find myself in a bit of a pickle. I'm pregnant and it won't be long now before I am no longer able to wear my regular clothes. I was barely in the second trimester last time before I was in 100% maternity clothes and that's only 4 weeks away now. My maternity wardrobe does need a little sprucing up since the majority of my HUGE months will be in the summer. However, Evan thinks I should buy regular clothes. Personally, I don't think it makes sense for me to buy regular clothes now when I'm going to be as big as a house until September and then as big as a garage until goodness knows when. I understand his argument though - I'll still be in the same position I'm in now after the baby's born and we have the money for me to shop now. I just don't know. Add all this in to the fact that I absolutely HATE shopping for myself and I'm stuck. Something tells me that when all is said and done, I'll have bought a shirt for me and a whole bunch for Isaiah. That seems to be my M.O.
