Think Pink! (Well, with a Little Touch of Purple to It!)

I know you were expecting to see this post yesterday, but I've had the "bug" all week and while I was trying to stay on top of things up until yesterday, I simply crashed last night. I'll beg your forgiveness and ask you to enjoy this feature of light fuchsia pink now - and come back before too long with some mint green in honor of chocolate mint day!

In order to make up for my transgression, I thought I'd add a bit of fun to these features, so I'll be including some fun facts about colors in the form of trivia questions along with each item. You can find the answers by clicking on the blank space at the end of each question and dragging your mouse or cursor to the right so the answer will magically appear! First of all, let's see if you'll be feeling "in the pink" once you're done with this quiz!
