matchy matchy = vomit

Back to clothes, on Sunday Braeden and I accidentally matched. On Saturday we went to Kohl's where they were having a crazy shirt sale so Braeden (who is sorely in need of new church shirts anyway) bought three, among them the one you see before you. Jokingly I told him that we could match because I have a button down church shirt as well that is a similar color. He thought it was a great idea but I couldn't bring myself to actually do it since things that are matchy-matchy make me feel ill. However, when I got dressed for church the next morning, either forgetting or not realizing how similar in color that cardigan was to his shirt, I put it on over my gray dress, a combination of clothes that I had never worn before but based on the comfort of the dress and the chilly temperature outside I figured it would be a great choice. Lo and behold, when I arrived at church I saw Braeden dressed in the same color combination. Really? Really. Sabotage. The only way we could have been more matchy is if I had worn black shoes and Braeden had worn his pink neck tie. I think if that had happened I would have vomited. Either that or just taken off my cardigan...

I think it's cute- nothing to vomit at. I can totalllly understand that concern though.

I love REALLY strong reactions to matchiness. Chad too has a strong, bordering violent distaste for people who match. It always makes me laugh, because he's pretty easy going on other things, but matching people gets his blood really boiling.

People never match in Portland.
