we are that couple.

Today, like any other day, Mike and I get ready at the same time. More often than we'd like to admit we end up dressing a lot a like. We're THAT couple. Not twins mind you, but similar colors. We might both have on a green shirt, or a navy sweater. It happens. I've heard a lot of couples go through this. The margin narrows even more when we purchase the same items in different sizes.

To date I think we both have the same Smoky and the Bandit T-shirts, a few of the same OTR (our favorite local bar) t-shirts and a few cardigans that are all the same, just in different sizes. I'm sure there are more, but you get the idea.

I'm the biggest cause of this issue - I like to purchase my "boyfriend cardigans" from the men's department. I mean isn't the that the point? And when it comes to dress shirts, or button downs, I'd rather shop in the men's department as well. They accommodate my chest better and frankly, I hate wearing pink, or purple. I'm not a girly girl, but not quite butch. Most recently I purchased a military style jacket, and then realized one night we both put them on as we went out the door. He has one I gave him years ago.

So yeah, most days you could say that we dress the same. Purely by accident. We usually laugh it off, or make a joke over who was dressed that way first and someone needs to change and it should be the one completely dressed, second.

This morning as I was getting dressed, Mike commented... "Man, I was going to wear my yellow cardigan." to which I replied, "Go for it, I mean it's not like we work in the same office."

We went about our morning routine. Getting breakfast, making coffee, putting on make-up (me, not him, just wanted to be clear), feeding the pets, letting June, our dog go outside about 10 times (read twice) and then we headed out the door.

As we were walking through the yard to the cars a vehicle drove by and I started to feel a bit self conscious, we looked like twins for the most part, or at least like we worked together. And then it hit me, we were totally Honey and Vinegar. As in Honey and Vinegar Realtors. Good Realtor, Bad Realtor. If you get this reference, I love you. If you don't read below.

Mac and Dennis on Always Sunny start their own Realty business. I can't for the life of me remember the circumstances it's been forever since I watched the episode but they wear matching mustard yellow sports coats. One was the good realtor (Dennis I believe) and one was the Bad Realtor (Mac). Needless to say it fit what Mike and I were doing to a T. And it made me chuckle.

I like to think I'm Honey in this situation, but truth be told I'm probably Vinegar.

While I've never seen this show (I know...total blasphemy...Shana says I need to start watching The Big Bang Theory too...not enough hours in the day), I think this is hysterical. And I just got the honey/vinegar, good/bad realtor thing. It took a minute. Neal and I don't really have this issue because I just wear his clothes most of the time, but we are constantly saying the same thing at the same time. As long as I don't go bald, too, I'll be fine with it.

Kell does barrow some of my tshirts enough, that I've told her just to keep them in her drawer.

HAHA! I love it! :) Jake will literally change if we're wearing too similar of clothes. So funny!

Misty said...

I need a Smokey and the Bandit t-shirt!

Haha, this cracks me up. +1 for Always Sunny, but also because my husband and I do this. Completely by accident! He'll walk out in yellow pants and I'm already wearing yellow pants, then he'll get mad and change, because he doesn't want us to go out in public matching!
