The goatee.

Garth has gotten into the habit of NOT shaving and letting a beard appear. Here we are at a brewery a few weekends ago:Here we are on Thanksgiving:Oh, and on Halloween he was really scruffy:Ok so you get the point that he has been sporting the beard for a while now. But yesterday I came home from work to quite a shock:A GOATEE:Eek, who is that?! I hardly recognize my own husband. I'm getting used to it, but I am secretly hoping he shaves it off before my work Christmas party this weekend. Who's with me?

Ha ha!So cute! Change is good ;)

Too funny! I'm not into the goatees either! My hubby can't grow a beard to save his life and boy am I glad. He's tried the whole goatee thing too and it just doesn't look right. I like his sweet baby butt smooth face! :)

Rebecca Jo said...

I think it looks more "Metro-sexual" then the full beard... what a fun surprise to come home to though! :)

Lauren Kelly said...

Too funny! But I think it actually looks good on him!

Sara said...

I think it looks good on him. Maybe it will grow on you...

Shannon said...

I vote to shave it!

DeDe said...

It could be worse.. my husband had a goatee while we dated. I begged and begged him to shave it for our wedding day. He refused. When did he shave it off? The day we got back from the honeymoon and it has been gone ever since. Thanks, darling husband, for ruining wedding pics! He doesn't even look the same!

hmm, well, i'm not really a facial hair type of girl. my high school boyfriend had a goatee and i was not so cool about it...

katie + bret said...

haha awww... poor Garth :( The man just wants some hair on his chin!!

I am sure he will shave it off for you to make you happy dear :)

Shanny said...

heehee
At least he is trying on different looks for you.... but since you rather him not have it then I'll be on your side.
So sorry Garth but shave it off!

I have to tell you that Mr. Newlywed Giggles sports a goatee and I love it! When he does go clean shaven, he looks like a little kid and a totally different person to me. lol

lola said...

Hahha Matt hates shaving and has gotten into phases where if he doesn't have to, he grows out a full grizzly mcadams sort of beard! haha.

New England Girl said...

I am not a big fan of facial hair, so I am definitely with you! Although, in saying that, it looks like he can pull it off! :)

Lauren said...

Hee hee...I am definitely a fan of no facial hair! Thank goodness Hubby can't grow much of anything except patches! Good luck!

Jen Caputo said...

LOL! Raising hand!! I cannot stand facial hair. Everytime Adam doesn't shave for a few days I tease him about the things that must be growing in there or the little children that are lost. I refuse to kiss him till he shaves it :)

Kristin said...

You could shave it in his sleep! Ah ha ha

Newlywed Hostess said...

I am lucky that my hubby does not try facial hair out on me. I have never been a fan of facial hair. I dated a guy once and he did not shave for a few days and lets just say I refused to kiss him. It weirds me out. Probably can blame my dad, who NEVER misses a chance to shave.

Erin said...

I think the goatee suits him! But I know how you feel because my husband grew a mustache at one of his schools and I made him shave it as soon as he came home!

AmyT said...

awwlll I like it!! I love facial hair!! I never ever know what my hubby is going to do with his!! He does some wild things!!!!

Elizabeth said...

Also good to switch looks! :-)

Autumn said...

I am not a fan of facial hair either, and luckily, since hubby is in the Army, he doesn't have any. He'll take a "break" from shaving sometimes on the weekends, since his skin is sensitive, but he will ALWAYS shave before we go someplace, thankfully! I vote to shave it!

Jennifer said...

Sometimes, my husband does the goatee minus the mustache part. Not sure what that would be called, but I LOVE it. But he can't have facial hair for work, so it's a very rare occasion that he grows it out.

Mrs.LifeAccounts said...

hahaha, well I'm not going to insult the hubby but my preference for my own hubby is clean shaven or only a few days of stubble. Our agreement goes something along the lines of....you shave, I shave. :) Thankfully he hasn't tried to test me on that one, I don't think I could hold out!

Danielle (Life with the Hewitt Family) said...

My husband used to put off shaving as long as he possibly could...I did not like it one bit! I am glad now that his job requires a clean shaven face or a trimmed beard...so clean shaven it is! That makes me really happy!

It looks good, but I am not a fan of facial hair!

Carrie @ Laugh Love Eat Ice Cream said...

I actually prefer the goatee to the full on beard.

I have a feeling he'll shave for you soon. ;)

Annie said...

i think it's a good look for him!
hopefully he will shave for ya though ;)
my fiance usually goes days without shaving so i'm used to the scruffy look too. i love when his face is shaved though...he has such a baby face ;)

Mrs. Potts said...

It doesn't look bad at all, but I'm with you - shave it.

Tasha said...

It's a fun change but I would want him to sport a clean face for your work party too. :-)

Hailey {HRH} said...

haha - you are too funny. but you are right! its funny how a little facial hair can really change hte way a man looks.

MrsB said...

yeah, im not into goatees. he looks ok with it. i think he looks better with the full beard. if MrB sprouted a goatee one day i'd laugh so hard. then make him shave it. and if he threatened to leave it? id stop shaving my legs.

Megan said...

Hah! I actually love facial hair. But maybe thats because Luke can't really grow a whole lot of it so I dont have to deal with!

writing4612 said...

I think it suits him. I really think it depends on the person as to whether or not it looks good.

~Mrs. Guru~ said...

Mr. Guru has a goatee and I love it. Not a big fan of the full beard on him but others can pull it off.

Brittany Ann said...

Funny! I think it's a wee bit better than the beard, but I personally like a smoother face! My husband doesn't have a lot of facial hair, luckily!

The Pink Chick said...

You are so funny! I don't like it when my husband had a goatee either!

Rachel said...

Having the exact same problem with my husband.. stupid goatee!

Nicole said...

I love goatees!! =D Leave the hubby alone lol Its cold maybe it keeps his face warm! =p

Samantha said...

I LOVE it!

Ashley said...

I think it makes his face look slimmer ! It looks nice..you will get used to it !

Lil' Woman said...

Lol..I'm the same way when Big Man does something weir to his facial hair...
