So every once in a while I like to test hubby's memory....or shall I say his attentiveness.
for instance:

Me: "Gee, without looking, what color are my eyes?"
Hubby: "Brown"
Me: "ehhhhh, wrong, hazel....always hazel"
Me:"What's my height ? ( I never ask for weight)
Hubby: "5' 4""
Me: " by 2 inches"
Hubby: "Well, I am accounting for you in with your average shoe height"
Me: "nice save"
Me: "What's my favorite color?
Hubby: "RED"
Me: ......speechless

Bingo he got one right......or maybe he's just a good guesser...really there was actually more than one right answer to that question............either way I am impressed.
And it got me gears in my head turning....I do really love RED.

So back to the studio with visions of red in my head.
Ripe, cheery reds,
tawdry, passionate reds,

rich , decadent reds,

40's glam reds
LOVE them all.....

Now if he would only remember my shoe size...gotta work on that.

Afterall, Christmas is rapidly approaching!
