Yesterday was Day 1 of The Melissa Gorga Experiment, and I only had to tweak a few little things in my daily routine to be more Melissa Gorga-esque.
The first one was the hardest: My Blue Robe.
When I was staying at my parents’ house a few years ago, I borrowed this robe from my sister. While wearing it, I leaked some breastmilk on it and was delighted when my sister said, “You know what? You can keep the robe.”
It is so PLUSH and warm and snuggly. I typically wear it in the mornings and at night when I’m relaxing. I’ve even been known to wear it to bed some nights.
My husband hates this robe. He calls it my “invisibility cloak,” because when I wear it, it repels him. Or something like that.
So I packed the robe away in my closet for the month and wore a sweatshirt instead. How sexy!
I tried my hand at sexting while N was at work. “I can’t wait to see you later. I shaved my legs today.” He ignored me.
When N came home from work, we lined up at the door to greet him with smiles (from me and the baby) and wails from a cranky two-year-old. Oh, and beer.
In perhaps the nicest thing I did for my king husband, I bought a design-your-own six-pack of craft beers at the liquor store. He was very surprised and appreciative.
Although I still think his favorite part of yesterday’s experiment was the fact that I shaved my legs.
Do you have an item of clothing that your partner despises, yet you continue to wear it anyway?
