Today is day 4 of "Freedom to Marry week". It's so much fun to do this and read all the other bloggers doing this. I'm really enjoying it.
The color blue has been a constant in my life. I've always enjoyed the color. When we got our first place together, the kitchen HAD to be blue. The dishes had to have blue in them. The decor was cobalt blue. I had baskets that matched my canisters, that matched my dishes, that matched the little odds and ends that were in my kitchen. To say I was obsessed with blue would be an understatement.
When we got pregnant with Nae, we registered for her swing, high chair, and stroller/car seat combo in blue. We knew we were having a girl, but at the time, I didn't want EVERYTHING to be pink. My mom and MIL were very upset about all the blue, but they went with it. There were a few comments here and there, but on the whole they were willing to accept that Nae wasn't going to be decked out in pink.
Then, we got pregnant with Zilla. Even though we did most of everything at the last minute, there were a few items bought for him. And of course, those items were blue. After we brought him home from the hospital, we painted his room..blue. The lovie my MIL made him, is blue. His crib bedding was blue. He had a lot of clothes that were blue. His bedding is blue now, too.
I don't know why blue seems to be a reoccurring color in our lives, but it is and nobody has complained...yet. Our kitchen is still mainly blue, but I'm not AS obsessed with it anymore. Now, I'm just trying to get it clean and STAY clean. That is something I'm still working on.
