Washing our socks together.

...Or is that underwear? I Love to fold socks on laundry day! Know why? Because my husband and I have such GREAT taste in socks! His are completely the same. He doesn't really like to leave his comfort zone. He throws them all away at the same time when they're done. I've witnessed this once. Got rid of a bunch of worn out white socks and bought 5-6 packs of the same kind of socks. SO easy to fold! Thank you, honey.

Then we have mine. I'm not nearly so predictable. As you can see (and this is even with quite a few of them sitting in my dirty laundry pile), I LOVE my socks! They have to match the outfit I have on for that day. The one thing I'm lacking in this beautiful pile is brown. Do you see brown socks of any kind?? Now, I'm kind of on a brown kick - so I've been going with brown sandles instead. This is quite the ordeal for me, you know. How do you like my fish socks at the top there? Most of these were aquired in my Minnesota days, but once in a while I'll find some adorble ones I can't pass up....Wal-Mart, garage sales, whatever.

How can two people that are SO SO different get along this well??? You'd think we'd want to kill each other by now, not even close. I love this man more and more every day, even though his sock collection (though quite handy for me) is BORING. Maybe this one will make him comment. :)

Well, that was very sweet. Thanks for sharing. Matt's drawer is the same except he also owns a large collection of black dress socks in addition to the white ones. There is something comforting in predictability (although he is predictable in virtually no other ways). :-)

SO glad you're back!

LOL!! Don't feel bad about him commenting, my husband is computer illiterate, maybe if I paint flames on it......

I love fun socks, too. Very fun collection. I like that guys (most guys and mine included) are pretty simple like that. I think its their nature. It's also why men like women, they are trying to figure us out. "Why would she need all those different socks?"
