Sunday Snapshot: Missing Pink

Pink is not a good color on me, so I don't wear it.
Because I don't wear it, it is basically non-existant in our house.
After all, with 5 boys and a former Marine living here, you don't see many pink shirts, bows, socks, or even toys.

Lately though, I've been really achin' for some pink around here. Maybe it's because I know it's coming soon....or it could be that I'm just tired of camoflauge and blue. Maybe if we weren't going through this adoption, the thought of pink wouldn't even enter my mind. But...we are...so...it is.

Personally, I think that a little pink around here will be a nice change of pace. Maybe having some pink will calm the place down a bit. Maybe?
Maybe the hint of girliness in the house will be just what we need to stop breaking bones and breaking things.

A pair of pink sunglasses on the table (right next to the spiderman ones). Some little pink shoes in the foyer (beside the pairs of football cleats). Some pink heeled socks (amongst the dozens with holey toes). A little pink sweater in the laundry (next to all the grass stained jeans).

And a little black haired, brown eyed sweetie smack dab in the middle of this.....

and of course......wearing PINK
