Evolution of a Beard.

THIS is what my husband used to look like...
Handsome, right?!
I have hope that someday, this shaved hottie will come back to me.

It started as "just for fun!"
There was a short period of time I thought we were headed in the right direction. 
Very short.
Then winter came and I lost all hope.
Winter stayed.

It continued to get colder. 
It began to grow like weeds and at that point (I think) laziness took over.

Then lambing began and there was no time for him to leave the ranch, let alone make time for a haircut!

So, here we are almost 10 months later...


and my husband now has the nickname of 'Dude'.

Just this week he decided it was time for some more fun and is now rocking a mullet. I don't think I can bring myself to post a picture of that. At least not yet.  

No one told me this is what ranchin' would do to him!

This is too funny. My husband will do the same thing...and use the excuse 'it keeps me warm when I'm skiing.' His beard gets gnarly by the end of winter. And I swear he doesn't even need to wear a helmet-he has so much hair on his head to keep anything from even getting close to his actual head. It's like he is wrapped in an extra layer of protection.

Glad you guys enjoyed! He plans on shaving it before our trip to Mexico in July. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. In his defense he says it does help keep him warm in the winter and is good protection from the wind. Either way, I'm looking forward to the BIG day that he shaves!
