Fall fashion . Anniversary Update

After raving about my amazing husband in this post last week for our anniversary, I realized today that I never talked about what we did to celebrate. How ungrateful would I be if I didn't brag about what my sweetie did for me?

First of all, a few days before the actual anniversary he surprised me 
and took me shopping for a new pair of boots... 

He knows me too well. If there is one thing that I love, it's fall fashion. Boots, jackets, sweaters, scarves... I adore everything about clothing for this season. If I could dress this way year round, I would. In fact... I have been known to wear boots and scarves in the summer (and suffer the consequences... fashion before comfort, right?)

Speaking of jackets and sweaters... That's what he surprised me with next. After we got my new boots I figured that they were my present because they were more than enough. But, on the morning of our anniversary, I surprised him with breakfast in bed and some music equipment he has been wanting, and I got clothing in bed. (I love breakfast food, but I'm thinking this is way better.) He surprised me with pajamas, and this new jacket and sweater:
Then, all dressed up in my new attire, we went out on the town. He took the day off of work and we spent time with our daughter, grabbing Chinese food for dinner.  Klair loved the sticky white rice :)

After Klair went to sleep we got a babysitter and headed out to the movies. I had been hoping to plan some kind of a getaway to celebrate, but Klair has been going through an extremely needy phase. I recently left her with Sam one night and he told me that he's never heard her cry so hard.  She refused to take a bottle (I'm still breastfeeding her) and she refused to go to sleep for him until she unwillingly fell asleep--exhausted from her fit. She adores her dada, but apparently when it comes to bed time she just wants me. With this in mind neither of us felt it would be a wise time to try out our first night away since she was born. It wouldn't be fun for her, and it especially wouldn't be very fun for her babysitter. Thus, we decided to take a rain check on the getaway idea and settled on a night out at the movies, hot chocolate, and a nice scenic drive. We saw The Saratov Approach. We had been meaning to see this movie for awhile, and it didn't disappoint. In fact, I loved it.

Overall, our anniversary was a simple, lovely day with our little family. 
It was a great way to celebrate our marriage.
