(Pre-post note: This new blogger set-up is very strange and I'm hoping I get used to it very soon).

Spring has sprung and it is quite beautiful and green where we are!
have had a number of rainstorms, afternoon showers, and lots of
sunshine! I feel like everything is breathing and alive! It is
definitely refreshing. It almost has me wanting to move outside and do most of my living on our patio!
All the wonderful weather has me itching to go shopping. I have resisted the urge to go into any stores because I know seeing the cute springy / summery tops and bottoms will have me really wanting some new wardrobe pieces. But, I'm going to stay away (as best as I can) because 1. I'm still unemployed! and 2. I'd really like to drop just a couple of pounds before I get anything new for the bod.
However, I have NOT been able to resist looking at shoes online. It is a terrible thing, that started with the need for a new pair of running shoes (mine have been causing me some pain). I got onto Zappos, shopped around, and ordered with a giftcard that I had. But I didn't stop there. Somehow I shopped around, and went from site to site and ended up on TOMS and now I'm swooning for a pair. I have never tried them on, so I don't know if I'd like the fit, but the idea of shoes (not sandals) that don't require socks sounds sooo appealing in these warm wonderful days.
