Now I am no longer expecting, but I am constantly chasing my kids around. Looking glamorous has taken the backseat and I now spend my days wearing comfy clothes like my Pajama Jeans and a T-shirt, and my hair is often in a ponytail or messy bun so my kids don't yank it out by the handful. I am often covered in random baby goo, and make-up is something that's reserved for going out.
But still, miraculously, my husband still thinks I am beautiful, dried spaghetti-o's and all. Now that's real love!
Every once in awhile, after the kids are asleep and the toys have all been cleaned up, I like to dress up in a sexy costume and surprise my well-deserving hubby. I have a ton of them to choose from, and they are a lot of fun after a long week! Sometimes I play the French Maid, sometimes a naughty schoolgirl, and sometimes I am even a referee. (Most often during football season.) Costumes are a great way to keep the spark alive, since you can transform into just about anything in seconds!
Recently, my husband jokingly said I am a "Goddess". I quickly realized that this is one persona I couldn't back up with a costume. When I got the opportunity to review a sexy costume from HalloweenCostumes.com, I knew I had to choose something that fit this theme. It took over an hour to choose, since they have so many great options, but ultimately, I decided on the Goddess Aphrodite Costume.
The costume is also very well made, and has a ton of feminine charm. After all, this IS Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love! The bodice is very form fitting, and enhances the bust very well. The long, flowy skirt is light and airy, giving an almost ethereal appearance. It is truly spell-binding, and fit for a themed party or a more private affair, if you catch my drift!
Needless to say, my husband LOVES this costume. His eyes popped out of his head and his jaw dropped. He actually places this in his top 5 favorite costumes, and loves the soft, seductive look and feel of the Goddess Aphrodite costume. Wearing this costume, I don't need Cupid and his arrow to rekindle the flames in my marriage. My husband seems to be at my beck and call. Maybe there is something to be said for the powers of Aphrodite and her influence over men!
If you haven't ever tried wearing a sexy costume for your husband, I would definitely recommend it. It's a fun way to escape the pressures of everyday life, and it just may bring some romance back into the picture. Even if you spend your days covered in babies like me
