When Mark & I were engaged, there were several friends who were getting married around the same time we did.  And being young and a little silly, we bought each other beautiful pieces of lingerie for our respective wedding nights and honeymoons.  One time, a friend of mine & I walked in to Victoria’s Secret (as an aside, I’m not really sure what Victoria’s “secret” is, but she’s not doing a very good job of maintaining that secret, is she?) to buy a peignoir for mutual friend.  We found a beautiful gown and my friend took it off the hanger and dropped it on the floor.  I stared at her and asked what the heck she was doing – her reply was, “I just wanted to see what it will look like after we give it to her!”  😉

Those days probably seem a long time ago to you.  They were a ways off for me, too.  And yet, there’s something really nice for wives and their husbands when the gift is … wrapped.  😉

You might not still have something from a lingerie shower from your pre-wedded-days, or if you do, it might not be your current style or size.  Regardless, I encourage you to splurge a bit on yourself and your marriage – either dust off what you’ve got or buy yourself something new.  Don’t consider it a “waste of money” – you’re investing in your relationship with your husband!  Men are (generally) quite visually-oriented and gift-wrapping yourself is not only a gift to him, but a present for yourself, too.  You’ll feel better about yourself and that extra-boost you give yourself is worth it.  You’re worth it!  :)  you don’t have to spend a boatload of cash to accomplish the goal – just pick something other than flannel or sweatpants that is specifically *you* and surprise your husband (and yourself) with it.

You won’t regret it!
