So who took a selfie yesterday? And what did your husband say about it? Do tell … I’m dying to know how it turned out for you all.

Today’s little idea is pretty easy — wear his favorite color. Of course, the thing is, that assumes you know his favorite color. Because somehow in the midst of raising kids, paying bills, and keeping the laundry done, details like favorite colors can often get lost.

The point of this one isn’t so much about what his favorite color is and if you know it. It’s more about being a student about your husband. We need to be intentional about paying attention the details concerning him. What are his favorites during this season of life? If he could do anything for a career, what would it be? What are his dreams right now? What is one thing he really doesn’t like? And so on …

Today, wear his favorite color … but let it be a reminder to you to pay attention to the details about your guy.

What is your husband’s favorite color?

FYI: Scott’s favorite color is red and I don’t own red. {It’s because I’m a lunatic college football fan who cheers for Auburn and can’t stand Alabama and thus red is not welcome in my wardrobe … I know, if you weren’t sure about my sanity now you’re convinced I am totally crazy!}  So I’m going to wear red lipstick because, really,  what guy doesn’t like his girl wearing red lipstick??? 🙂

Cheering you on,

  1. As you well know, Teri Lynne, I’m married to a color-blind engineer to whom color doesn’t matter…I wear his favorite basketball team (Memphis Tigers) colors of blue and gray regularly during the season. I am not a fan of basketball, but he is. I make sure I am aware of the schedule, what channel the game will be on and what time and for the win, I gave him tickets to see the hottest game on their schedule. He knows basketball isn’t my favorite and he appreciates that I watch with him, care about his team and can converse with him about it all. To top it all off…by giving him tickets to a game in Memphis, I get to go away for a weekend with him! She shoots…she scores! {I also know more than I ever wanted to know about distributor caps, Formula One racing, makes and models of cars, tools, golf, soccer etc. It is, however, pretty cool to overhear him when he doesn’t know I’m listening and he says things about how blessed he is that I care to find out and converse with him about things because I know they are important to him!}

  2. I wore orange today!! We are both liking orange these days!!! Such a happy color! His other favorite is purple. Another happy color!!
