Help my Hubby is Attempting to Grow a Moustache

Hi everyone.
This blog today is dedicated to my hubby, who plans to drive me "NUTS" for the entire month of November. Now, it's here I should preference, one, I'm proud of him for stepping up to fundraise for a good cause because he's painfully shy and never does stuff like this so that makes me very happy, but really did he have to pick growing a Moustache? Yes, according to him he did. Now, it's here I should write that I hate facial hair on men. Hence, why I'm married to one who can not grow it - which you will all see as I take weekly pics of his "growing moustache" to prove my case. I asked him if I should support him and grow my armpit hair and he almost died - case in point, that's exactly how I feel about him growing any facial hair. So, let me stress again this is all for a very good cause but here is what I will be giving up for the entire month of November - KISSES from hubby. I think it's me that deserves a reward at the end of this. Our teenagers by the way have already started teasing him and yes, he's jumped the line here and started to grow one this week because as you will see in the coming weeks, he really can't.

Here is a sample of the weird things he's said to me already concerning the moustache.
"If I conditioned it, would you kiss me?", asked Hubby. Besides laughing with a vision of him getting a mouthful of conditioner, my answer was NO.
"It will make me look older," he said. No, I said, it will only make you look like a convict.

More to come in the weeks ahead, I'm sure.

So to tell it in his words, here is hubby's cause. Hope you get the NUTS joke now.

This Movember, the month formerly known as November I've decided to donate my face to raising awareness about prostate cancer. My donation and commitment is the growth of a moustache for the entire month of Movember.

I'm doing this because 4,400 men die of prostate cancer in Canada each year and one in six men will be diagnosed during his lifetime.

I am a part of the “Men in Trucking” group, which is the male members of the NS Trucking Safety Association’s Board of Directors.

I am not a very skilled moustache grower, and I firmly believe my moustache will look more like a 14 year-old’s than most. Feel free to point that out when you see me.

This is a cause that I feel passionately about and I'm asking you to support my efforts by making a donation to Prostate Cancer Canada.
