Suit N Tie Suit N Tie

I'm alive!!!! Boy, have my days been filled with photo shoots, blogger events, conferences, youth group obligations, fundraisers and family (not in that order ;D). I have soooooo many posts and pictures to share of all mentioned activities but FIRST I have to share a recent trip to the dapper Mr. Mac for the Mr's new suit! Guys, I'm in LOVE!!!!!! One of my responsibilities in church is being the camp director for all the young women in our congregation/ward. Our huge fundraiser was a carnival and BOY did that take a lot of imagination and hard work.....and I loved every second of it LOL! I'll post more on that later. At said carnival we had a live auction and the most aMAZing things were donated. 

One such donation was a full suit from Mr. Mac in American Fork, Utah. Guys, this place is leGIT and the owner just happens to live in our neighborhood. Well, I knew the Mr. was eyeing that particular item but I knew a lot of other men were too. I was attending to other duties while the auction took place but BOY did I know that he got it when I saw his face!!! He was pretty excited albeit a little nervous to tell me lol. The day of his suit fitting I posted a pic on IG of the final four suits we were debating on.
The response was heeeaaaavily weighted to suit number ONE. We really did love number four with it's brilliant blue hue but sooooo many people have wanted it that it's on back order for forever and harder to get. Weeeeelllllll, we went with......
Number ONE!!!!! After he was measured and taken care of we were told our suit would be ready in a  matter of days! These guys don't mess around and the finished result was more than we expected. The coat is like butter and the pants fit him like a glove. I demanded a fashion show and after a few minutes of prodding he relented (I think he was excited too but didn't want to appear too eager ha!). Now, let's take a moment while the Mr. changes into his new suit. While we were there at the shop with owner Adam Winn, he told us all about the fine quality of suits he carries. Seriously, this man has you covered if you want an inexpensive but well tailored suit all the way to if you want super high end and can drop a few thou. The extensive materials, the ties, the accessories...I never knew I could have so much fun in a man's SUIT store!!! I was particularly interested in the Happy Socks he has available. Have you guys SEEN these? Am I just behind the times in just now loving them?
I wanted him to buy EvErY single PAIR!!!!! Alas, he said they weren't really his "thing" (flash backs of a scene from Honey I Shrunk the Kids). The pout commenced...maybe only in my head to save myself from the embarrassment a childish tantrum would have caused in the middle of such a nice establishment and we left....without them.
BACK TO THE MR.
Ladies, when my man walked out with his new suit and fresh haircut I think I may have actually giggled. As in, my crush has just walked into the room and I am immediately RED giggled. He looked sooooooo good I could have eaten him UP! The power of a good suit ; ). He strutted around a little to make me laugh, then struck a pose that not only made me erupt into fits of giggles but also made it impossible NOT to see the sock he was wearing. HE BOUGHT SOME!!!!! When his suit was ready for pick up and I was off doing makeup, he BOUGHT some!!!! He is a keeper and I love him. I will name him Squishy and he will be mine. The next day at church I couldn't stop staring at him and decided right there and then that we would need to take a family pic so that I could remember the moment I fell in love with my sweet hubby all over again. Reasons that come to mind and I never want to forget:

He makes me laugh
He is such a good daddy
He is a God fearing man, at church every Sunday with us
He did something that wasn't his "thing" because he knew it would make me smile
He looks soooooooooo hot in his new suit
He loves me and I love him
You may all commence the awwwwwwwws
 And now the oh dears and head shaking LOL!!!
xoxo Jen
(ps you'll notice our youngest is wearing his own crazy socks to match his daddy's. I bought them both a pair of green Christmas socks from the dollar store for crazy sock day. Glad they could be used more than once lol)
