Yesterday afternoon the hubs and I went down to the "Big City" to deliver a bull that has been waiting for a ride to his new home since our bull sale in November. He gave me the customary, "we'll leave in a couple hours," which translates into, get ready, pack your stuff up and be ready to head out the door when he pulls into the driveway to pick me up.
So I started putting on some make-up, straighted my hair up, put on my nice dress jeans, a nice sweater, and even some pretty dangly earrings. As I was putting the back on one of my earrings I stopped and thought, "What in the world am I getting so dressed up for?" We weren't stopping anywhere except to meet the guy that was going to haul our bull and to get some diesel on the way home. This was a get down there and get back trip.
Then I realized, whats so wrong with dressing up for just your husband? NOTHING! In fact it rarely gets done! We as ladies will primp and preen for a trip to town, the mall, or a night out with friends, but how often do we just dress up for our husbands. Something besides the dirty t-shirt the baby has wiped her nose on a thousand times or the muddy jeans that are leftover from time outside.
GUILTY as charged right here! Since we live out in the middle of nowhere, I don't worry about putting make-up on everyday, fixing my hair to it maximum potential, or dressing in anything more than a t-shirt and jeans. I know there are days that even I don't want to take a look in the mirror, but bless my husbands heart, he still manages to tell me I look beautiful. *Sigh* So ladies dress up for your husbands every once in a while. I'll bet they enjoy it.
