Today I am thankful for.....

.....an orange inspired day.
Orange has never been my favorite color. I kind of associate it with South-African jail attire that looks like this:


It is Chris's favorite colour though. He loves orange and although Chris seldom wear it, his place (to my detriment) is decorated with splashes of orange - even sporting an orange, brown and grey striped carpet.

Today me and my friend Jill went shopping. We ended up in Uniqlo and decided to buy our lovely boys a little gift - just because we love them so much. I spotted this lovely orange colored cashmere **** (I'm not going to tell because I'm scared he'll sneak a peak at my blog and it's suppose to be a surprise) and even though I don't really like orange that much, I knew he would love it. So I closed my eyes and bought it. But then the strangest thing happened - slowly the color orange started to grow on me and by the end of our shopping spree, I was hooked. I guess the fact that I knew Chris would look soooo cute in his new orange **** helped matters. But now I kinda like orange too..... especially after seeing this picture.....


and these....






...oddly, I never noticed my favorite fruit are orange colored...


......but I've always liked the look of Thai monks......


...and an orange eyed cat, smoking a pipe...


Now who can resist an orange-eyed-pipe-smoking cat?
NOT ME!!!!

Remember when I balked at the fact that Chris likes orange?! Well, I'm biting my tongue now! I totally agree with you and love the pictures you found! :)

P.S. I'm thinking of heading over to Gukje after work today to do a little walking and shopping. Wanna come with?
