3 year Anniversary and a year of dating ahead!!

Daniel and I celebrated our 3 year anniversary on Wednesday.  I can't believe how fast the time has gone...I guess that's what happens when you are incredibly happy and blessed!!  I did have to work of course but Daniel had Briley that day so he surprised me and came to school with her and lunch for us both!!  I had already eaten lunch :) but it's the thought that counts, right??  It was such a nice surprise and my kiddos always love to see Mr. Bufe and Briley!!

That evening, we took Briley to my Mom's so Daniel and I could go have a nice dinner at Texas Land and Cattle.  It was really nice to sit and have a great conversation and talk without interruptions but we both did feel like a little something was missing from our steak dinner, but we knew she was being well taken care of at her Gigi's!! 

Instead of giving each other gifts this year we decided on something different.  I read on one of Briley's sitter's blogs The Vanderveer's (Joey, Kyle, and Max...adorable family and Kyle always writes the most witty and cute blogs) that instead of giving each other Christmas gifts, they were going to give each other 12 Dates through the year (like the 12 days of Christmas).  I mentioned it to Daniel and he liked the idea too, so since we were too late for Christmas we decided we would do this for our anniversary.  We flipped a coin and I got the even months and he got the odd months.  We set rules that we couldn't tell each other anything about the dates until our anniversary and we had to try and think of unique dates that went beyond dinner and a movie.  So, on Wednesday night we revealed our 12 dates we have set from next month until April 2011.  As you will see...Daniel way outdid me on the revealing process and we also thought very similiar on some dates (the exact same date!).
The dates I thought of are in pink and Daniel's are in blue:
