AW: DIY Boudoir Pics ( and a humorous disaster)

So...FI and I went to beautiful Erie, PA this weekend so that he could take the exam for the PA State Police (fingers crossed!).  Since he'd be gone all morning and my new tripod had just arrived, I thought it'd be a great time to do some practice for the DIY boudoir pics I was planning on taking for his surprise wedding present.  Waaay better to do them in a fairly nice hotel room than in my cramped, messy bedroom.  :)

 I'm going to take more later, just to have lots of options to choose from, but I'm already so happy with what I got.  I don't know anything about photography, so obviously they aren't anywhere near professional-looking, but they're so much better than what I was expecting.  Yay!  I'm going to attach a couple below - I don't think they're TOO racy, but if there are any objections, of course I'll take them down (and probably will at the end of today, anyway).

I did run into one small snag: as a part of the ongoing saga in which my life appears to be someone's romantic comedy film, FI came home early.  I had about 8 clothing changes laid out on the bed, a tripod in the middle of the room, and a bit of lacy nothing and a pair of tall boots on.  And I hear the key in the lock.  So I'm running around the room frantically, stuffing the clothing under the bed, realizing that I didn't bring a robe so I have no way to cover myself, and meanwhile FI's going "Baby?  You put the chain on the door.  Can you let me in?"  And I'm all..."Hang on!  One minute!"  *Scramble scramble scramble.* 

I finally realized that there was only one way I could go with this.  I got the chain off, flew across the room, and was posed attractively when he walked in the door.  As his eyes goggled, I surreptitiously shoved the tripod under the bed with my booted toe.  And then I'm all casually "Oh, baby.  You're home early!  I didn't quite have your surprise ready.  This is...um...I wore this for you.  Because...um...I know you did so well on your test!  Sigh.  Well, at least I know now that he likes the lingerie choice.  :)

    Ha! Ha! That would totally happen to me too, only I'd probably manage to knock myself out with the tripod or something and FI would find me laying on the floor. Your pics turned out nice- definitely hot, but not tasteless (and I mean that in the nicest one lady to another lady way, not pervy).

    Totally cracking up about the mishap... that is definitely a situation I would get myself into!

    Thanks, guys.  It's good to know that everyone seems to be just as spazzy/clumsy/problem-prone as I am.  :)   And it'll be a great story for him once he's opened his gift.

    milsey - we're expecting the results within 3 weeks - but then there's still the orals, of course...  He'll be taking the foreign service exam in about 3 weeks as well.  Busy, busy!
