Ok—so if you know me, you know I have been campaigning for some time now so that Pool Party could be a “REAL” color and not just an “in color”. I even had a little chat with Sarah Douglas, daughter of Shelli Gardner, assigner of all “real” colors. (Actually, I don’t know if she is technically in charge of the colors but in my dreams she is.) Well, Sarah apparantly listened!!! Pool Party made the cut!~!! After checking the computer, I ran back up to my room to let my sleepy husband in on the good news, ‘Pool Party is for REAL now!” to which he responded, “Will there be drinks at this pool party?” WHAT??!!
