Until this year, I had no idea what Movember is - apparently, it's a National movement with a website and everything! According to the site, During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in the US and around the world. With their Mo’s, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men.

Well my husband joined a group at work named "Mo-nneapolis Vikings " and is growing a stach along with his friends. I've seen the man with a few days or ever a week's worth of stubble during hunting season, but have never seen him with more than a bit of growth. He came back from his hunting adventures with a nice beard going on which was different to see on my normally clean shaven guy!

2 weeks growth

Shaving it off

Halfway there - leave as handlebars?

Nice stache :)

Since taking the stache public, he's been called a porn star, child molester, pedophile, nothing good! Though someone pointed out that he looks like Inego Montoya from The Princess Bride - I like that comparison best!

Being that my dad and his dad had prostate cancer and his brother had testicular cancer, I think it's great that he's joining this awareness campaign! I also think him with a moustache is hiiiilarious. The guys had a "mid month meet up" last week to compare staches and will compare again at the end of the month. I can't wait to see what it looks like in two weeks, but I also can't wait to have my cleanly shaven hubby back. :)

**Funny side note - my mom wants to take a family picture to use for their Christmas card while we're with them over Thanksgiving next week. Hope you don't mind that Tyge will be rocking a stache, Mom! :)
