My husband's reaction to his birthday gift.

Monday, December 30, 2013

I'm not sure how long ago but DH and I were walking through the mall and passed by Glamour Shots. They had a boudoir photo hanging there and I jokingly made a comment that I was going to do that. Well he looked at me and said "Well I don't have to worry about you doing anything like that because I'm too shy". Well every since then, I was on a mission to do it.

So I actually did the photos 2 days before my 40th birthday. I figured it was a great way to celebrate turning 40. I waited 2 months to give this to him for his birthday.

I had previously given him 2 framed photos of me holding a balloon that said happy birthday. I was wearing a black short nightgown. Nothing too revealing but that was just setting him up for the big reveal. You are able to see some of the photos in the video.

    That was priceless! I was laughing along with him at the beginning - especially when he said it would probably be pictures of bunnies! The ending was delightful! Great gift and the recording will be as treasured as the pictures! Thanks for sharing!

    emoticon hahahahaha I love how he asked at the end hahahaha
He thought it was going to be a prank (I guess cause he said you were shy and didn't expect it to be what it was hahaha) and then when he realized it was what he thought he was like OOOOOOOOh now wait a minute let me enjoy this hahahaha
Love the reaction!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm sure you got a proper thank you for that gift and I think it wasn't only a gift for him but for you to show off the body you've worked so hard for, GOOD FOR YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now that's how you keep a mans eye from wondering, good for you!
The pics I saw you looked beautiful, what a great gift for hubby! I think you should at least let him have one with your birthday suit hahaha just for his eyes and for him to take hahahaha
Thanks for sharing loved seeing the way he reacted hahahaha

    Good for you! I had some of those taken several years ago and I tell you it was quite the boost to my ego. They are some of my favorite photos of myself that I've ever had taken. I had them taken for my SO at the time for our anniversary and boy was he surprised. He loved them.
