Thank you everyone for the lovely congrats and comments on our 1 year wedding anniversary!! I was not expecting it at all and loved reading them. I'm happy to share some of our special moments with you guys. :)

On our anniversary we went out to lunch and this was the outfit I had wore to it. Something nice and casual. Later on I changed into something more formal for our dinner which I didn't get to take pictures of unfortunately. :( I felt this outfit really stood out with the hot pink/magenta lace sleeveless top. I love the dotted pattern design on it as you can see on the last pic. So pretty! It's definitely see-thru so wearing a simple black tank top underneath was perfect. I paired it with all black pretty much and hardly any accessories because I wanted the hot pink color to shine! hehehe.. Also, I wore my Chanel jumbo flap cross-body because I got a request to show how it was worn like that from a previous reveal post.

Onto the food pics! For our anniversary dinner, Hubs took me to John Howie Steak in Bellevue. We were debating between this place or another restaurant that I absolutely love but the reservations was kinda crazy so we went with JH. I hope to post about the other restaurant later in the near future. ;)

 Amuse bouche - top sirloin with a chimichurri sauce.

 Tableside ahi-tuna tartare - where they come and make it for you.

American wagyu sirloin. Hubs got the Australian wagyu, WAY more tender and buttery. :)

 Different type of salts that pairs with your seafood or steak.

My fav!! Lobster mashed potatoes!! So delicious. :)


 I was able to order a mini replica (left) of our wedding cake from the same baker. 
They made it look almost exact except we had used real ribbon on our wedding day (right) instead of an edible fondant ribbon. haha.. And I had chosen the quilted design all b/c of my love for Chanel. <3
The teal love birds on top are s&p shakers that I had hand-painted and decorated myself. Clever huh? :) 
Hubs wanted to make it a tradition on getting this cake every year.. we'll see...

Cutting into our mini cake together. ;)

What would be some anniversary traditions you have or would want?
Thanks for reading this long post!
