  2. I so wish I could have that life. I'm 27 and my husband is 29. My husband knows that's what I want but he's flat out dead certain that all adults belong in the work force. "It's the adult thing to do. It's part of growing up." But then he expects me to do all these things when I get home. I'm wiped. When I was unemployed, I tried to be the perfect housewife to convince him that "Hey this really is a good thing. Let's keep it up!" But to no avail. I keep trying to convince him that housework and balancing the home life is just as important as working in the world. He covers life fiancially, I can cover all our home needs and it would be a great balance. He wouldn't have to do anything after work and I'd get everything done during the day so we can relax at night and one weekends. Nope. He's already trying to secure my life's career right after the first kid is born (which isn't even thought of yet) and is hellbent on making me choose a full time career… that I honestly don't want. It's not that I'm lazy… when I'm not working, I'm cooking, cleaning, vacuuming, buying food, taking care of the cats, taking care of my mom's dogs and finishing off by doing laundry til midnight or 1am. I just prefer the domestic life.
    It doesn't help that my mother is a feminist who works 60 hours a week, makes more money then her laywer husband, cooks, cleans and feels she can do it all… even if it means barking orders at her new husband like he's the family dog. If you are able to secure this life, then I envy you. Maybe one day I can join you… but I doubt it.

  3. I try so hard to live up to this image. Well, maybe not a pencil skirt and stocking…LOL! I am on a mission to look my best EVERY day.
    By the way, where can I find pretty dresses that don't cost a small fortune? (I am in the US)
    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this blog!

  4. I try to live up to this idea. I straighten my hair every morning, I may not wear a dress but I put on a trouser/skirt/top ensamble from next or m&s. I make sure I look as good as if I was going out to work.
    Me & my husband are both very oldfashioned , he works and I stay at home with the kids. I couldnt be happier AND i wouldnt want it any other way.
    Oh I always get the comments, 'so and so's daughter works and has kids' or 'id go brain dead with just kids to talk to all day'. But I dont care im proud of being a housewife. I love the domestic life.
