Today's Life-giving Challenge - Brush Anyone?

I don't know about you, but being a stay-at-home mom can sure put a damper on the looks! It's so easy to throw your hair up without brushing it, leave on your sweats, and stay in a "P.J." rut. Brushing my teeth can even be a challenge (oh come on, am I the only one?) It must make our husbands feel like their not worth much if we don't even put time into ourselves for them. So, today's lifegiving challenge is:

Get yourself together for your man! (And for yourself - you'll feel better, I promise!)

Now, I don't mean just brush your hair and throw on some jeans. Really take the time to look pretty for him. Curl (or in my case, straighten) your hair, put on some makeup (if he likes makeup), get out a stylish outfit, and brush your teeth! When he comes home, greet him with your beautiful self, a smile and a kiss. If your honey isn't used to this, he might say something like, "what do you want?" or "who are you?" But don't let it ruffle you, just grin and say, "because I love you."

Turns out my husband is working late tonight, so I'll have to do my own challenge tomorrow! My goal is to do it everyday!

You're not the only one with the teeth issues - it's 2 minutes to actually brush your teeth, let a lone floss, and rince. But you're right, when you go out of yourway do get made up a little it can go a long way.
