366 days +1 second

It's been a wonderful first year of dating...all 366 days and 1 second of it! (Thanks leap year and Mayan calendar!)
 
Obviously I've been slaving away working on a present for him. But first I needed an idea. Everything I thought of just didn't seem to fit....until I checked pinterest.
Omg so many cute anniversary ideas!
 
I went with the "12 dates" idea where you plan out a date for each month and hide it in an envelope until the 1st of the month when they open it and see the surprise!
 
I took it a step further and made sccrapbook pages for each month that will go in a book after we take a picture on that date:) (Ok, so that part was more for me. Sue me:P)
 
I also made him a "Man Bouquet" a.k.a. instead of flowers he got mini airplane size bottles of booze on a stick! Romantic, right? ;)
 
Here's a pic in case you can't picture it in your head:)

"Of all the other fish in the sea, you're the only ONE for me"
I've seen them in bigger bowls/ more liquor, but I just wanted this to be a little part of the present, not the whole thing. 
 
So on to the important stuff....
What I wore.
 
Wellllllll, I wore this awesome dress from eshakti.com that I won from the fabulous Holly over at Running in Stilettos!

 I loved loved loved the lace detailing at the top and on the back! Classy and wearable into the winter time with tights. Double score!:)
 
What he got me.
 
I think I'll let the pictures talk on this one;)
