Today is the last day of November so I thought I would report on how we did with Movember.

The Husband forgot he was not to shave.

Son #1 tried very hard and only had about 4 very blond, very short, mustache hairs and one really long beard hair on his chin.  He was, at nearly 16,  pretty happy with the results.

Son #2 was happy he was young enough not to try.

I can grow a pretty full corner-stash when called upon to do so but nevertheless kept plucking so that I would have a hairless upper lip.  I don't think that ladies are to grow a mustache during Movember so I did not feel guilty when using the tweezers.
  (Our ladies group have a pact that as we lay dying we will take turns coming in making sure the chins and upper-lips are plucked clean - thank you ladies!)

I did send in a small donation as our family's Movember awareness fell short visually but we were sure there in spirit.

I do wonder if mustaches and beards will ever come back into fashion, though. Has been a LONG time since they were out, and with all the 70s inspired clothing about, I just wonder....

That is SO funny. I could possibly NOT shave my legs (ewww) but refuse to let the little hairs on my chinny chin chin dangle.

I love that your entire family was so involved. I had many friends who participated and I donated my lunch and coffee money to each one.

Great that you and your gfriends are already looking out for each other, lol.

Happy weekend!!
