Photo Dump Wednesday (on Friday): Anniversary picture teaser

2 months ago, hubby and I celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary. Per Wikipedia, the traditional gift is leather. I went on Google and even on my trusted site (Pinterest) to get ideas for our photo session but couldn't find much.

So I came up with the bright idea to wear something leather. Hubby told me last Fall that he needed a new leather jacket. For our anniversary, I gave him a gift certificate to a store where he could get a leather jacket.

Fast forward a few weeks later and we took the day off to relax before the Memorial day weekend. We used the opportunity to go to the mall to get our leather jackets.
I picked up a cream colored jacket and skirt and couldn't decide on how to dress it up. Here were my choices. My sisters voted for the second outfit because they felt the lighter color would look better in pictures.

Option 1

Option 2

However, when I went to put on my jacket, I noticed several stains on it. So I put it away for a return back to the store. I didn't want to wear it and end up with a stained jacket that couldn't be returned. I had no time to waste since out photo session was just a couple of hours away. So I put on a red leather jacket my sister got me a few years ago 1 and swapped out the shoes. 

Before we left, we decided to take a couple of pictures at home.


My dashing husband in his new leather jacket. Isn't he a hottie???  :-)
Here is a small peak of our photo session. 

And since we are playing dress up, we got JOE her first pair of sandals the same weekend. Here is a picture of my little princess in her first pair of sandals. I love those pudgy feet! I know its summer...we'll see if J is OK with her wearing nail polish :-). She already tries to file her nails since she sees me doing it.

Have a safe, happy and healthy weekend! And remember to be kind to strangers!!!
