  • I dress up for us both! I feel better when I'm dressed up a little and I'm sure he likes it more than my jammies! When all my house work is done I play with my girls...if they're napping I watch a show

  • im usually in a pair of comfy sweats and a fun tshirt. if i know im going somewhere ill get dressed and go...sometimes i dress up for the hubby. . . and after im done doing everything i need to get done sometimes i just hang out for a little bit, usually i take the dd outside to play or to the beach or playground....just depends on what we feel like doing that day. and i get my cleaning all done by 9:00 am usually. so we have lots of play time together.

  • I get casual comfy and fresh before he comes. But I don't get dolled up if I'm not going anywhere. He actually can stand and loves my natural beauty.

  • It depends on how I feel. Last week I went on a spree where I put on makeup and some of my nicer jeans and tops. This week it's more laid back. It's typically jeans every day. Some days are just a little dressier than others.

  • I'm usually comfortable at home. I usually don't get dressed up unless we're going somewhere, I don't usually put makeup on unless we're going somewhere.

    Like Sylvia, my husband loves my natural beauty. He thinks it's stupid to put makeup on and get dressed up just to stay at home. But on a rare occasion, I will put on a slinky dress and get all dolled up, so we can have dinner together after the kids go to bed.

    As for what I do after I'm done cooking and cleaning... I've got a 'to do' list of things that need to be done, like organizing the bathroom closet, going through the kids' toys, going through our seasonal clothes, etc.

    I will spend some time working (I'm a photographer) or just relaxing on most days as well.
