The matching game

Thursday, February 17, 2011

Ok, have you noticed that over time you and your significant other seriously start to rub off on each other?

Every time I see my mother she points out that Jacob and I are dressed a like. I always get defensive and ask her what on earth she's talking about. We most certainly are not dressed a like! I mean once in a while our color scheme matches, but we just happen to like the same colors. It's not like we plan it or anything. Neither of us ever even notice it until it's pointed out by someone else.
Then I started thinking... Does my mother have a point?
I was glancing through some photos of us... Sure, sometimes we coordinate... But who doesn't?

None of this freaked me out that much, but then my mom brought up our honeymoon pictures. She asked if I purposely bought Jacob a shirt to match all of my sundresses. I had no idea what she was talking about, until I looked at the pictures again.
Ummm... That's normal right?
I swear we never plan to coordinate, we never even notice it the majority of the time.
I blame my husband. I'm always dressed before he is.
Does anyone else find that they unintentionally match their spouses (a lot)?


  1. That is hilarious.... my husband and I are the same way! And the sad thing is we have been for a long time. I said to him once that I feel like we're the Bobsy Twins! But he gave me a blank look and had no idea what I was talking about. Oops.

  2. I don't think it's weird or bad or embarrassing when couples match. My husband and I tend to wear things coordinated in color. Sometimes on purpose sometimes inadvertently. It definitely looks good on pictures rather than some kind of mismatched mess.

  3. haha that is too funny!
    y'all are so cute. thanks for checking out my blog.. following you back :)

  4. You two are so adorable!!! I think it just ends up happening that way similar to how you just finish each others sentnces or thoughts.

    When it's meant to be....It's meant to be :)

  5. Your pictures are adorable!! My husband and I do that sometimes and we just assume it means we have similar taste and we're compatible. But I do think couples start to rub off on each other.

  6. that just means you're in sync, right?? i hope so, 'cause we have more than a few photos where we look a little matchy matchy. you guys look smartly coordinated - love the cute vacation photos!
