Ladies-please tell me I'm not alone!!!

My Adorable Hubby
I love my hubba bubba so darn much and because of this, I am constantly looking out for for his best interests. For instance, if his hair is getting too long (draping over his ears) and looking shabby-I constantly remind him that: A) I need to cut it and B) he should be using product. I mean, I have just about every type of hair serum from anti-frizz to gels to oils to pastes-you name it. Thus, I'd love it if when Travbo decides not to cut his hair, he'd at least style it. His hair has such potential, but really Trav does not take advantage. Thus, I make mention, "maybe you should use this product in your hair...." hint hint. Then when he doesn't get the hint (always), I try to physically help him out-serum in hand going for his noggin. ALAS, he won't allow it! Why, I knoweth not!!! I'm only trying to HELP, rather hinder. As I'm only trying to HELP him NOT wear a brown belt with black shoes, the same old ragged-bleached (surely you've seen it) hoody over and over again when he's got tons of new and MUCH better looking ones in his closet. Not to mention, the much too thick eyebrows that I'd love for him to surrender to me and my pluckers.....ETC. Now I ask, am I in this alone? Am I being a too overbearring, fashionista wife or do you as wives also pester your hubby's and help them out with their appearance? Please do indulge me. I mean, one of the only tips Trav will take from me other than the 'no brown belt with black shoes' rule, is if I tell him he has a boogie hangin out of his nostril-he'll swipe it. Other than that, he's somewhat stubborn and won't take my fashion sense (and really I don't have too much of that myself, but more than him at that) and apply it. So how 'bout it ladies-give me some inspiration here por-fa-vor!!!!

Oh he's such a trooper and such a cutie!!!

As far as I'm concerned, Trav is darling no matter what his hair looks like and what he wears. However, I would agree with you if we were discussing dad's fauxpas!

Girl that is one battle you might not ever win. But you are not alone. My husband has a purple old school Utah Jazz shirt that he would wear every day if he could. I mean seriously lets talk fashion.

yes, i created that layout. and thanks! i like it too! check out tycie's- they are so cute!

anyways, about the post.. NO! you are NOT alone! i am always "helping" (or trying to) shawn with these types of things. shawn has an added... hinderance. he is color blond. so you can imagine how often i am telling him he CANNOT wear those two things together.. haha. but i must agree with you on this matter. they just need help. :)

If only men cared more about what they looked like.... then we'd wish they cared a little less! You'd think though that if you're suggesting something he should do it to look good for you, right?!

To be honest, a man needs to be a man not a fashion model. It's nice to help my husband out once in a while but in the end I'm not his mother. The only thing I care about is that he showers daily and his fly zipped!

my husband is always asking for my advice about fashion and stuff, and I just think guys are clueless. tom was wearing clothes from high school until I started buying clothes for him. I think its an ongoing battle.

I have the opposite problem with Jared, he has no hair to cut or style and he has a great sense of style. Sometimes though it gets out of hand, he HAS to only buy MEK jeans, he always needs new clothes for work and even those have to be the bst of the best and the most expensive. Good thing he looks sexy in all that we wears :)

I laughed so hard at this post. Especially when you mentioned the brown belt with black shoes fashion faux-pas. I definitely had to teach Dan that one.

Will you email your address at brittanybowen@gmail.com I have something to send you.
