February is a tough month for my husband. My birthday, our anniversary and two out of three of his kids were born this month. Seriously, I love February.
A few days ago I got sidetracked from being productive and found this on etsy. I let my husband know: "In case you were wondering what your anniversary present is going to be . . . ACT SURPRISED!" If nothing else, I crack myself up. Turns out Seadaddy was slightly on board with my idea. Only he wanted the beard to not be pink (rude) and he wanted the hat to be a sailor 'dixie cup' cover. There is a slight chance he watched too much GI Joe as a kid and still thinks Shipwreck is pretty awesome.
So I decided to take his request under advisement and this is what I came up with: + = As you can see by the very fierce modeling I didn't wait until our anniversary to give it to my husband, but I can assure you it is definitely taking the edge off the stress of February for him. His only complaint is that it is not a real beard.
Now the man has somewhat of a work around for those pesky grooming standards!
