Once again, the blog that I swore wouldn’t be all about Rob is going to be about… ROB. (I try! I really do, but I just can’t get that boy out of my system!) [W4R: Is this where I’m supposed to feel sorry for you? LOL Its not working… LOL]
I’m the kind of girl who prefers a clean-shaven guy. Well…at least I used to. I used to not be a big fan of beards and I could barely tolerate a goatee. Enter Rob and all that goes to hell! All of a sudden I’m finding scruff… sexy, and I find myself not minding the goatee that DH is sporting. (I swear he snuck it up on me when I wasn’t looking. ;))
Now we all know that Rob’s level of hotness is not affected by the growth of his facial hair. OR IS IT?! [W4R: Sure doesn’t hurt it either! LOL] Everyone has their own personal preference for Rob and his scruff/beard. Some like him clean-shaven. Some like him with that mountain man look. Then there’s my favourite, The In-Between stage. That glorious scruff that is just long enough to not hurt your sensitive skin anymore and very possibly soft enough to tickle 🙂 [W4R: Ladies & germs, I present to you, The Progression of ScruffyRob…. LOL *points to graphic below*]
Rob's varying degrees of facial hair
It is a well-known fact that Rob doesn’t shave unless he has to. It’s fun to anticipate how long he’ll let that beard grow. We all know it’ll happen but during a RobDrought it’s almost as if we’re holding our collective breath until we see just how much scruff he’ll have on that beautiful face of his.
Just this week the great city of Toronto (yes, it’s home to me) had the pleasure of having Rob grace it with his presence. Yes, it was a very brief visit! And yes, he was able to avoid being found by any of the “Toronto Set Soldiers” (you know who you are – I love you ladies!!!!) There he was at Pearson International Airport [Exhibit A: Photo on the right–>] with that full beard of his, looking like his incredibly sexy self!!!! [W4R: UNF! Oh, um, I’m sorry.. what…? LOL]
I’m thinking that he’ll probably lay low for the next few weeks until he has to start the promotional blitz for Breaking Dawn: Part 1. Will he be spotted looking like he did last year as he drove through Texas [W4R: Please come back, Rob… puh-lllleasseee! *begs* (yes, I’m begging! Worth a shot!)] or will we have to wait until he starts working again to be treated to his clean-shaven beautiful face? Can’t wait to find out!!!

While we’re on the topic of beards, here is a fan fic story that features a beard prominently. Give it a go. It’s still a work in progress but it’s fun so far!
The Good, The Beard and The Stubborn by Rinabina
A mini-take for Foul Territory. Edward comes home from a road trip with a new “development.” Bella reacts, lines are drawn, sides taken and the bet is on. Who will break first? Will be complete by the end of the week. E/B AH AU
Before I end this post, I’d also like to give you a link to a fan made video by manu150176. Go have a look! So much scruffalicious goodness!!!! While you’re there, have a look at her other videos.
*Writing4Roses is kind enough to look over my ramblings to make sure I’m dotting all my Is and crossing all my Ts (and to add the odd witty comment every here and there).
