There is a test you can take called the Munsell Hue Test that gives you a score of how well you see color. Danielle is an artist so this topic is of great importance in her work, and since I know some of you are artists, (you know who you are) and some of you think you are (like me, you know who you are too :) I thought this test would be fun to take!
I have also decided to initiate a competition between my husband (with artist genes) and myself.
I surprised myself with my score and originally I thought Grant would win me, but now I'm not so sure he can! I will let you know who wins. In the meantime, let's see how you guys do!

(isn't it strange how the simplest things can make your heart go pitter pat?)
and when I read this, my heart melted again. The best part about this is I know it's true because he proves it every day.

Has this ever happened to you? Well, it has happened to me...twice in the last year and both times at wedding receptions! I am waiting for my friend Heather's wedding photos to have a "who wore it best" feature starring me and the other girl. Actually, I am not embarrassed by it at all. I just think it's funny and I think it's even funnier that it's been so frequent recently. We both had on different accessories and everything so the dress had a different look on both of us. Grant and I got in the car and I asked him the question, "who wore it best?" and he laughed and said, "you did" which was the right (and only) answer. We were also talking about how it's happened to me recently and he asked me where the dresses were from. I told him the first dress was from F21 and the second was from Target. Not exactly exclusive stores. What he said next was music to my ears. "We are going to have to make it so you can shop at boutiques so that this won't happen to you." He was so sensitive to every woman's worst nightmare: showing up at the party in the same dress as someone else! I don't really care about that so much as the idea of shopping at boutiques. I like this solution. Even though shopping at boutiques doesn't mean you won't show up with the same dress as someone else. Thus the "Who Wore It Best" segments in our favorite fashion magazines. Oh well. My solution is just simply go up to the other girl (whether it be a fellow wedding invitee I haven't seen before or Sienna Miller) and say, "I like your dress" and laugh the embarrassment away together. It seems to be working...
