The hubs and I have been together for 11 years and married for 9. Since the beginning of our relationship we have birthed 3 children and our lives have become increasingly busier with not only the needs of our children, but his full-time job and weekend side job, my blogging and my 2nd job selling pretty nail wraps. My oldest daughter is going into the second grade and my 2 year old is getting ready to start pre-school, so you can imagine how often our lives cross for us to sit down and enjoy real quality one-on-one time. Can we say “hardly ever?” Thankfully my mom has stepped up to help us out, bless her heart, and carves out time in her schedule once a week and pretty much tells us we HAVE to go on a date while she watches the kids. We definitely do not argue with that, so each week we take her up on her offer, drop the kiddos off, and head off somewhere nice to enjoy a dinner together. Each week, we do enjoy dressing up and looking nice, so I always request for my husband to have a freshy shorn face. 🙂 before this last date night, I picked up the new Gillette Flex Ball razor at Walmart as a gift for our date night. He needed a new quality razor, so I was excited to have him try it out! I picked up the Gillette Flex Ball Manual razor, since manual razors are his favorite. I didn’t want him to get razor burn so I picked him up a can of Gillette shaving cream as well. That stuff smells good, ya’ll!
When I asked him to shave for our last date night, he had let his hair grow out quite a bit. It was fine because the Gillette Flex Ball Razor did the trick and gave him a super close shave. It chopped right through that facial hair forest! He really enjoyed the swivel that the Flex Ball gave.. it made it much easier for him to shave over the round parts of his face! And here he is all ready for our date night. That is one smooth face! Well, except his goatee… he hasn’t shaved that off since high school. Even I haven’t seen him without it.. and we will be married for 10 years next year!
But seriously though, it is super important for couples to have regular date nights.. these have really helped us reconnect and refresh our relationship. I will always cherish the alone time that we have together, even if it’s for a short amount of time. It helps to remind me why I fell in love with the big lug in the first place!
