Wanted: Housewife in Atlanta

A friend of mine just got engaged and her fiance asked her to work on ending her career. She loves him very much but said that she is having a hard time wrapping her mind around the concept of housewife.

She fears her existence will become about shopping and domestic work. Clearly her idea of housewife is a bit distorted. I wondered why being a housewife seems so unappealing to women today?

Although my mother was a career woman, she seemed to enjoy caring for the family and my Dad. The thought of being a stay at home Mom or housewife sounds pretty awesome to me, personally. I believe there can be joy found in having a career or being a housewife.

What do you think of the idea of a woman leaving her career to please her husband? Is it unfair for men to want a housewife?

Guys, would you ever ask or want your wife to leave her job or career? What if she really enjoyed working?

no joke. i once introduced a former coworker to endless.com and she went on a spending spree. when i took a look at the stuff in her shopping cart all the shoes were made by a company called “pleaser”. you know i couldn’t let her live that down.

czBrat – Ahhh, yes indeedy. I LOVE Ninewest (that’s the majority of what I have) but I also have a few pairs of RLs, Joan & David, AK…whatever is on sale and good buying when I’m looking :)

Did you say 5″? You better work it girl!!! I think 4″ is my limit. Anything over that takes effort…lol

i tried for years to bond over shopping trips but she was never into shoes (or bags).

My mommy and I are like that..she’s not into shoe/boots but I am. We’re into accessories n perfume but my sister and I on the shoe thing. My sister and I have a few pairs of the same shoes independent of each other while not knowing the other had/has bought them. Great minds I tell ya :lol:

Never understood socks and flip flops.

@Confirmed Bachelor ~ that woman had no busines throwing a $60K bday party for a freaking 5 year old. If that’s not the right amount or the child’s right age, it was close!!! He should have put his foot down and demanded she scale back…trying to keep up with the Jones can indeed cost you your life!

Okay has anyone seen the shoe commercial where you go on line and take some type of personality quiz and they “design” a shoe/boot line based on your answers…and their prices are under $50? What’s it called again?…shoe dazzle.com or something like that. I NEED to at least look at the site…I just wanna look :oops:

exactly, C. i was always trying to tell her that even jeans and a tee take on a whole new meaning if you kick of the flip-flops and go with a sassy heel. NOW she gets it and she’s loving it.

and don’t let me slip on the 5″ with a pair of shorts. s/o just starts licking his lips! LOL

Sassy – I looked up shoe dazzle. Seems Kim K started the company. :) You take a quiz & they send you a new pair of shoes every month for #39.95. They pick the shoes out for you based on the quiz.

sassy, i signed up for shoedazzle but did not care fot the selection at all. plus i’m not into being charged automatically monthly for pre-selected shipments. i rather enjoy my own perusing and plucking goodies in and out of my cart as i go. same online as in the brick & mortar stores.

DSW IS THE DEVIL….and I tink I love he :oops: . Love that place…just got two pairs of boots from there a few weeks ago..right before I went to College Park shoes and got three more pairs of pumps. This is the time of year when the seasons are about to chang and retailers ease out the winter stuff for the cheap and try to get rid of summer shoes at the same time. This is when I usually buy my shoes/boots or right around the end of the year when errthang’s on sale.

problem is, if you question me about “my style” you would think i’m conservative. if you try to make selections for me according to that, you’ll miss the mark. i actually like to put a sexy lil twist in just about everything.

CZ a taut tummy is a given. Also if those heels are worn with a bikini or short shorts the legs need to be toned :) Nothing worse than cottage cheese showing the length between shorts and heels…especially at the back of the thigh below the buttocks. That is not cute no matter what you think about yourself.

so you know exactly what i’m talking about, kimmie. just because i choose a suede blazer with elbow patches and a pair of dark jeans doesn’t mean i’m gonna slip on some loafers. i’ll take those 4″, knee-high leather boots with the pointy toe and buckles all the way up the back. please and thank you.

I would love some kick ass ankle boots but my ankles are too skinny so they never look right. My legs sort of look like how a spoon looks inside a coffee mug. :shock: :cry:

“Nothing worse than cottage cheese showing the length between shorts and heels…especially at the back of the thigh below the buttocks.” – Purp I call in the accordion look. Everytime they walk they make a sound. Ever wonder what knocks you off beat while dancing at a club?

“My legs sort of look like how a spoon looks inside a coffee mug.” – DAMN Slim I just said the exact samething the other night while I was out about a chick. She pretty and fine but I couldn’t take my eyes off her coffee mug and spoon. I kept wondering what she was stirring in her cup. Re-heated grits, Refried butter, a pinto bean & walnut combo, cold hot chocolate, Thera Flu…..

Slim, Purp…. were y’all spying on my this weekend?

Yeah that poor kid is gonna grow up being so spoiled they won’t have any appreciation for anything. I can see spoiling your child a little but a child needs to appreciate things so they can take care of them. 60k, might as well buy a car or put a down payment on a house not a five year old’s birthday sheesh.

For Real go look at what cba told me to go look at.

Slim so skinny she can hang glide on a Dorrito. She has to run around the shower to get wet. She has to wear a belt with spandex. She slid down the shower drain.
She so skinny her nipples touch.
If she had kids she would not be called aparent she would be called transparent
If she turned sideways she would disappear
she can dodge rain drops
Her pants have one belt loop
If she caught a yeast infection she would be considered a quarter pounder with cheese
Her bra fits better backwards.
She makes crack heads want to diet
