Your first line accomplishes task 1 (though "Vanilla" is a strange choice for a color). But the instructions didn't ask you create another variable, so you don't need the second line.

Then, task 2 asks you to print out "The color [YOUR FAVORITE COLOR] is my favorite!", but what this code will print out is "I love Vanilla Vanilla ice cream!" instead. Fix the text to output the correct words and show the color only once (using the variable).
