Well I guess RED is not my color

This year at Christmas time, Mike was trying to decide what to put in my Christmas stocking, because we actually fill each other's stocking with candy, cologne or perfume, jewelry or anything that we think the other person might like. It was getting closer to Christmas and I knew that he had forgotten stocking stuffers and I told him that I was going to get his. Then he said that he had no idea what to get me. I gave him a few ideas and left it at that. Usually he has no problem with this so I don't know why he did this year.

Well on Christmas morning when we were opening Christmas we actually had our own "Christmas Miracle", if you know what I mean. Something showed up for me that he had no idea where it came from and I had just bought it and put it with my stuff. It was our joke for the day.

Well back to our stockings. When I opened my stocking, there was the normal candy, and no perfume because he had bought me three boxes of it last year, but there was red fingernail polish, red fingernail polish again, red lip gloss and then red lipstick. He told me to try it on. I told him I didn't think it would look good on me and that I never bought red for lipstick. He insisted that I put it on. So as you can see RED really is not my color at least for lipstick. I think I look hilarious. The whole family teases me and laughs at me when I put it on.

Well hopefully next year, either I won't get lipstick or if I do it won't be RED RED. What do you get in your Christmas stocking?????? ( Sorry about the picture, it definitely is not my best and you are probably laughing at me right now, but that is ok because I am TOO.)

Oh the woes of a redhead.

There are some reds you can wear...just keep trying. I finally found a lovely cinnamon/orangey red that I really love.

We don't do stockings. (Except for the kids of course)

I haven't had a lipstick in so long, and I used to famous for wearing lipstick where ever I went....and then I became SAHM.

Redheads have to be careful with that color. I know because I am one.

We've just got the fire and spunk naturally, is what I like to think.

I love red though. My toe nails are always red. :)

Isn't it funny how our complexion and hair color can make certain lipstick colors look good or bad?

My mom gave me some bright pink lipstick, and I knew it would look horrid on me. And I was right.

At least he tried!

Just so you all know, I am not much of a lipstick wearer, just when I go to church or on a date.

Ya, that is the lipstick I would save for writing sweet nothings on the mirror on those special days. Gotta love it!

We always get a movie and of course an orange...great for filling up the space. The rest is just a bit of candy, nuts, mostly peanuts...

Funny story. Love the pic!
