Winter Wardrobe...

Those words don't seem to go together in my mind!  Winter wardrobe?  Huh?

For the past 7 years my winter jacket has been more a fashion accessory instead of a fashion necessity.  I've given away or sold most of my sweaters and long pants.  And let's face it after 7 years most of them are not fashionable anyway!

In addition to purchasing colder climate clothes for myself I also have the Little Guy to outfit.  I have to admit, that has been FUN with a capitol F!! 

One of my favorite fashion accesories/necessities is a winter jacket.  Stafford has....um....a few.  One of them however is WAY more special than the others. 

Unlike both of her daughters my Mother is not a shopper.  It just isn't her thing.  When I was pregnant I had a shower back home in Kentucky.  My parents had talked to me about purchasing the bedding for Stafford's crib and I was really happy about that.  It was a bit pricey so I was thankful for the gift.  Towards the end of the present opening I started another present that was from my Mom.  I was surprised since I had opened the bedding already.  Inside was the most adorable mini version of an Air Force flight jacket. 

My Mom then  proceeded to tell me that she purchased the jacket right after Peter and I were married.  Long before we were pregnant and definitely before we new Baby E was a HE.  It meant SO much to me that my non-shopping Mom had picked this special gift up and saved it for me.

It's going to be pushing it to wear it too far into the fall because of the size so Stafford did a little photo shoot today to show off his awesome jacket!
