When I was dating my husband, I'd take like 2 hours to get ready. OMG. I can't even believe that anymore. I now am showered, dressed and all made up in 20 minutes tops.
Sometimes getting 'sexy' is a bit of work for me. I'll admit it. I don't always feel sexy from the inside out so it is hard to get the outside to look that way. Luckily my husband still seems to appreciate the efforts I do make . . . but I feel a little bad I don't do more. I go for comfort over sexy in the clothing department too. Am I a bad wife?
Haha I remember those days. Taking forever to get ready.
Now I'm lucky if I can get a shower in. It's really hard to have a shower with an almost 3 year old that's as smart as a whip. He knows how to unlock the deadbolt on the door. We have a screen door as well that has a latch. But he can also unlock that. He just grabs the chair, gets up and unlocks the doors. He's actually escaped a couple times. Good thing hubby was home to see. It could have been disastrous.
I rarely get all dolled up now. I'll dress nice for him on the weekends sometimes. But rarely do I put make up on unless it's for a special occasion. Hubby loves it when I do dress up for him, so I try as often as I can. But I too prefer comfort.
That does not make you a bad wife. Clearly your husband still loves you and that's what counts
Oh yeah, getting dolled up and sexy...like before kids? Um, not so much. If we are going somewhere I take an extra few minutes to pick out my outfit. I am not one to leave the house without makeup, so that is always a given. It is so funny to read this because I was just thinking the other day and was amazing myself that I get showered and ready and out the door in 25 minutes or less. I have gotten lazy by scrunching hair while wet or throwing it up in a knot/bun. If I blow dry and straighten then add an extra ten min or so. Yes, it used to take a minimum of 1 1/2 hours.
We just had our 21 year wedding anniversary and he still thinks I look good (I do not think so....esp sans clothing).
Does these mean I am getting old and lazy or that my priorities have changed? I think priorities have changed but also think I have gotten a little lazy in the "looking hot" dept. Thanks for bringing this up and reminding me that I need to step it up every once in awhile.
Maybe it is just a status of where we are in life. I know that sometimes it's mid morning on a Saturday and I walk by a mirror and am like "uhhhh . . . who is that" but my husband hasn't batted an eye. If I were him, I'd be thinking "lady, brush your hair" but he just acts like it's all normal and fine. Hard to argue with that. LOL I remember when I got all 'fancy' as my kids say and my son goes "mama, you've got black crayon around your eyes". Ha.
