However, if you remember, I was upset when he shaved his facial hair. I mourned for the loss. I LOVED his sexy goatee and sporty 'stache! I seriously cried.
I begged him not to shave his head until after he left for basic training! I couldn't handle more loss of beloved hair. I was afraid he was going to turn dorky on me. I know I am such a jerk. But I think we all have things we love about our spouses we REALLY don't want to change.
Ben has been gone for two months today. And he NEVER sent me a picture of him until this week. I was afraid to look at first, when I got it in a text message. Then when I saw it, I did a double take. OH. MY. GOODNESS! What a HUNK! He was buff!!! And even looked dang sexy with no hair! I would not have recognized him had I run into him in the street!
Okay, here are the before and after pictures, I know you all have been DYING to see -- well, actually, I have been dying to show them off. LOL.

Ben now: (Drop dead sexy GI Joe)
Now, I don't expect you to drool over my man... actually, please don't, and if you do, remember he is MINE! Hands off. LOL. Basically it's all just a matter of prospective. Good for me for loving my hubby... and good for you for loving yours :) Isn't life great that way!?
Anywho... I would love to hear your stories of spouses making major look changes! Do share! Especially all you Military wives out there who have gone through this too!
