If I Could But Know HIs Heart- Frumpy To Fabulous Update

Are you discovering your husband's heart through our Frumpy to Fabulous week? Once we start asking questions, and discover how he likes us to look, it does become easier to know how to please him!

Yesterday was a very busy day, with a lot of chaos happening. One child was keeping me on my toes, and it seemed as soon as I corrected this child for doing something naughty, they were off to do something else naughty! I was in the middle of shipping out orders for The Modest Mom, when in walks my husband from work. He is self employed, so I never know exactly what time he will show up.

I went to give him a hug and told him I was so sorry, that I had plans to have my hair curled, mascara on, and some tinted lip balm on before he got home but it just didn't happen. He hugged me tight and told me I looked beautiful, that I smelled good because I had taken a shower, and that he loved the color of my shirt. Awwww, talk about melting his wife's heart!

I hope this challenge is helping you not just stop and think about what your husband likes, but is also helping you fall in love with your husband even more. I know that's happening for me!

A link up is coming tomorrow, so get your blog posts ready if you want to join and tell us how your week went and what you did to go from Frumpy to Fabulous!

Tuesday night we had a "date" by meeting at the gym to work on our snorkeling and increasing our lung capacity and then go get something to eat. After the pool, I showered and did my hair in the curly down look just to please him. Then I realized I forgot my make-up bag and only had lip gloss in my purse. I really wanted to look nice for him and I was disappointed in myself for having forgotten! As we sat down to eat, he hugged me and told me how gorgeous I was. I couldn't help but stare lovingly at him the rest of the time we were eating. I think that in the past few months of really putting for the effort to look nice for him has caused me to love him more.

You got yourself a great guy, I am sure.
I sent a message to my husband yesterday as I was waiting for my eye appointment and told him all the frames looked horrible on my "ugly" face. (I was having a bad day.) He wrote back and said, "you could pick the ugliest frames in the store and still look beautiful to me". He's a great guy. I need to remember it.

Somehow I missed the start of this challenge. But my husband is vocal about what he likes and doesn't like. Sometimes he is not very tactful, but he is never mean. So I know he doesn't like me to wear bangs. He prefers that I wear just a small bit of makeup, but doesn't *hate* if I go bare faced. He also doesn't like me wear know the ones that look like I opened a bag of Hanes tshirts and put one on. Tshirt material is ok with him as long as the shirt is not shapeless. And he prefers that I keep myself at a healthy weight, partly for looks, but mostly for health, since I am diabetic and have high cholesterol. I do pretty well most of the time. The weight has been an issue since we had our son. But I am finally (almost 4 years later) back down to my pre-pregnancy "high" weight. So he's happy that I look "normal" again. :)

So, its Thursday and my husband either hasn't noticed or doesn't care. Either way, he hasn't said anything.
I'm feeling a little frustrated at this point.
Any advice?

Caroline I think you hit on something important in this post... You had a rough day, and you didn't get to fix yourself up before your husband got home, BUT you greeted him with joy and a good attitude!

While I do not want to greet my husband looking messy and frumpy my attitude and the condition of our home (and our children) seems to matter more to my husband. When he walks into our clean home (or maybe not even so clean) and is greeted by a smiling happy wife and children, he is happy!

In reading your comment it occured to me that though my husband hasn't noticed my attempts to look nice for him, he always notices if the house is in order and we are all happy to see him when he gets home. Thank you so much, thats what I needed to hear.

I'm sorry, today has been spend outside helping my husband scrape our porch so I haven't had time to respond!

Is there any way you could just go ahead and ask him if he noticed any changes in you this week? Not to beg for compliments, but just to see if what you were doing made any impact on him. Maybe he did notice but he just hasn't said anything?? Or maybe you are already doing such a great job that you didn't need to improve much! ;)

This series is at a perfect time in my life. I have been working on loosing weight that hubby has mentioned concerns about and the Lord gave me a way that is working. I had tried the last 3 or 4 years and nothing was coming off...till now. I am a third of the way of my goal weigh and I am loving it. I will take some time today to wear a bit of lip gloss, mascara and a bit of blush. I can't wait for hubby to come home. [o=

Blessings in Him<><

I'm a little late in reading these as I've been out of town for 3 weeks while my husband is on a 5 week film shoot. I still have one more week before he gets home. I really appreciate these articles! Its not that I don't want to dress nicer, I just never think about it! Though I have been trying to do better. Unfortunately, I still can't fit into any of my nicer pre-pregnancy skirts. When we were first married I was constantly asking my husband what he thought of how I dressed, but his answer was always the same, I looked good in whatever I wore! And I still can't get him to tell me what he really thinks. I want to wear clothes and colors that please him, but he doesn't seem to care what I wear as long as it's modest. Is there anything I can do to get him to open up more? There's also only one time he said I looked fabulous unprompted by me, and that was because another guy told him to say that! He is a very quiet guy, so maybe it's just part of us personality. I really want to greet him next week looking my absolute best. But somehow, I don't think he'll care what I wear. :-( What's a young wife to do in this situation?
