WIWW and It's our anniversary(!)

Our wedding was 3 years ago today.  In reality, we've been married for well over 3 years.  Confused?

Me too.

All I have to say is that we don't really celebrate September 12th as our anniversary.  Scott sent me these knives as a present back in May.  We consider May 26th to be our real anniversary.  It's weird not to celebrate your "wedding" day.  But this is so common in the military world.

And we I also celebrate our meet-a-versary.  August 30th. (In fact...Scott, I think you forgot my gift for our meet-a-versary.  Get on that, pleaseiloveyou.)

I told him I wanted an anniversary present for September 12th.  He laughed.  A lot.  That was actually the first time I'd talked to him on the phone in weeks.  He had clearly forgotten how funny charming I am.

Headband: Alaska Chicks // Jacket and jeggings:  JCP // Boots: Steve Madden //  Scarf:  Land's End

Welcome to what the next 6 months of my life are going to look like.  I wore this entire get-up all day yesterday.  I mean, the headband came off...for a few minutes at a time.


Happy this-week-is-just-about-half-over day!

P.S.  The Alaska Chicks website is currently under construction (Google them), but I am head over heels in love with their headbands.  I've bought about a dozen in the last 18 months; for me, as gifts, giveaways on the blog, etc.  If I were you, I'd be on the lookout for me giving away another one of these babies soon.

You know, when it becomes "hat weather" for the rest of the world.

  5. Happy Anniversary! :) Your boots are amazing, love them!

  6. Happy Anniversary! I am here from the Wednesday Walkabout! Looking forward to following your blog!

  7. I'm getting a little annoyed with the Alaska Chicks's been down for quite a while!

    Happy "Anniversary", and I totally think that Scott should get you both a Sept. 12th present AND a meet-a-versary present. Isaiah and I totally celebrate the day he proposed...Sept 20...and the day we met happens to be the same day we got married (a year later), March 20. So we celebrate 2 anniversaries, 6 months apart.

  8. Sorry (I'm not sorry) I'm stealing that look...once fall comes and I can breath in something like that. Happy anniversary!

  9. Happy weddingaversary! I can't wait to have a wedding to get a weddingaversary! haha Only in the military world. You look so cute, as always BUT I am so cold just looking at you! It was August 2 weeks ago!! How is it that cold already! I really would love to take a vacation to Alaska sometime. But, I would like it to be a 2 week cruise and then leave for warmer weather. lol

  10. Well when I grow up and get married I'm going to have three different days to ask for presents too. Genius idea.

  11. Happy all-encomapssing-versary to you and Scott!!!

  12. Saying Happy Anniversary from the WIWW linkup! Super cute outfit! I have just started wearing leggings and boots but the weather is still up and down here in GA!

  13. Happy anniversary! And happy anniversary for the two other important dates, too.
    Y'all are cute, I like that you celebrate all the big days. So sweet.
    Stay warm! Loving your outfits! They make me slightly jealous. But then I get over my jealousy when I remember my extreme dislike of cold.

  14. I WANT one of those headbands!! Please do a give away! :) Pretty please??

  15. Happy wedding anniversary! Love your boots...I'm so happy it's boot season again :)

  16. Congrats!! We plan to do the same thing! Well I do anyways! We celebrate our first date/when we became a couple anniversary too! Its still freaking in the 80s here so no boots yet for me :( Love yours though!
