Happy Monday....Tuesday...wait Wednesday??

I don't know where the day's have been going lately other then the free time that I do have is taken up by a few other things lately...such as Farmville on facebook...I know I know what was I thinking? Hubs teases me endlessly for this but it's fun and my little character has pig tails so what's not to love?

Also scrapbooking, I have a new determination to finish pending albums yes the nemesis of an engagement album this means you. I've been getting all sorts of fun ideas in my head for layouts but somehow they are all for other pictures and not the ones I am working on so maybe I should take a break from those and try some others...

Last week was Diwali for us (our festival of lights) as well as our new year...We also celebrate what is called "bhai beej" when you have your brothers over for dinner, I am lucky as my brothers just requested tacos and not some crazy meal lol! Here are some pictures....

P.S. This post is so jittery thanks to the Vanilla Caramel Latte I just had...yum!

Scrapbooking :)

A week ago I met up with some new friends to do one of my favorite things, scrapbook! It was a lot of fun and it got me motivated again... I finished my bridal shower album and it came out so fun :) I'm working on finishing the one from our engagement party...I also sent pics from our honeymoon to be printed! Can you believe I was able to narrow 847 pics to like 260 and I can't wait to get them!! I know I know I'm super behind and don't even talk to me about my wedding picture selections LOL I'm getting there!! I wish I could share pics from the shower album but my mom took it to show to her coworkers...I promise to update when I get it back :)

Do you ever have a million things to do and just don't feel like doing anything? That's how I feel today any tips on how I can get motivated??? Normally a to-do list does it for me but it's just not working today....

Where was I all last week? Prepping for this:

Navratri is one of my favorite Indian festivals...I LOVE the music, the gorgeous outfits, and of cours DANCING! This year I was able to get together a group of 16 AMAZING ladies to take part in a traditional dance.
Me and the hubs:


and the grand finale our performance of course!

Feeling yucky

Allergies are making my life miserable so I am going to lie down to keep my head from spinning. Hopefully I'll be able to think straight soon.

Where did this week go?

Most of mine was spent running around with my uncle and aunt who were visiting from Africa...believe it or not the last time I saw them was at their wedding! I was the same age then as their eldest daughter is now...CRAZY how time flies...I also noticed how fun it is to have little girls around...I love my nephews but you can't do this with boys:

or this:

I officialy mastered the braided hairstyle but it turns out much better on other ppl!
I also put together this last minute scrapbook with their adventures....

Are all of you wondering where your week went too?

Wednesday, August 19, 2009


So I guess the question is where have I been?? It seems like life is just moving by so fast and there's ALWAYS something going on!! First off the cieling in the basement fell through:

Then my mom's garage (courtesy of our newest driver)

All on the same day as a huge get together at our house for Raksha Bhandan (brother's day where sisters tie a string on their brothers hand to protect them for the following year to come)

Mix that in with a few other very important things going on, a commitment to help bake a cupcake cake, and a guest for dinner Saturday and lunch Sunday you get one very stressed out girl! Here is how the cake turned out...

That was all the week before last and I honestly don't remember half of what happened last week but I will say Happy Birthday to my twin nephews who turned 6 on Sunday!

Keeping my fingers crossed that I am back to regularly scheduled blog posting and commenting...

P.S. No I'm still not done choosing wedding pics...does someone want to come help??

Am I 5?

It's ten minutes to eleven and I am so craving some of these:
Any one else have an unusual love for kiddie cereals?

Anniversary Part 2

We spent the next day at Hershey Park....kind of fitting to ride roller coasters right?? I have to tell you I will willingly sit on the roller coaster but I will chew my nail the entire time till I get on the roller coaste....then I keep my eyes shut and scream at the top of my lungs...quite entertaining if you know me!

I didn't take too many pics because well we were riding roller coaster but I will leave you with this:

Anniversary Getaway Part 1

Our first anniversary was sweet in more ways then one! The hubs surprised me with a trip to Hershey, PA and an overnight stay at the gorgeous Hershey Hotel!

Isn't is absolutely breathtaking?

When you check in you get chocolate!

My hair was pretty for about 20 minutes

We had lunch at Harvest an amazing restaurant that uses all fresh and local foods...These chocolate covered strawberries were to die for!

The Hershey Gardens were SO pretty (there were two weddings on site that day!)

We then headed to the Hershey museum and took a chocolate making class :)

And ended the day with another yummy dinner on site at the Fountain Cafe!

Last Wednesday was this kind of day:

Where all you want to do is eat Rainbow Chip frosting out of the jar...well because it makes you feel better! I needed a couple of days to regroup and figure out a plan...I still don't have one yet but I'm working on it...I missed the bloggie world and hope you'll all forgive me for my little absence and this blah post...I promise for a more fun one tomorrow about our AMAZING first anniversary :)

Perfect Weekend

We started out like this at 6 AM in the airport...(he actually wanted Nachos but was lazy to walk and go get them)

Our in flight entertainment (I am now in LOVE with this show):

All to visit this sweet face:

We had an amazingly relaxing weekend which included eating, hanging out with family, Wii tennis matches, endless games of Judgement and Mafia, the pioneer woman's yummy pasta salad, chocolate molten cakes, celebrating anniversaries/birthdays, going to the pool, and fighting over the baby which eventually led to this:

Yesterday we drove back my brothers new car from NC and got a little lost in Washington...We also stopped in to fill up gas at a gas station that apparently had none...

Hope you guys had a great long weekend I for one didn't want to come back :)

Thursday, July 2, 2009


I'll be back on Tuesday with fun pics and a new recipe!!! In the mean time I'll let you guess where I've gone :) Have a happy 4th of July!!

Where am I??

Swimming through 4,000 some wedding photos! Yeah I know it's almost been a year...but after trying over and over to get the husband to help I am just doing it...but why is it that everyone always asks me why it's not done?? Isn't it supposed to be a joint effort?? Also another thing I noticed for half of an Indian wedding the girl is not even part of the is just her parents "giving her" to the groom...

and for the half that she is there well half of that time is spent like this...

In conclusion I have gone crazy looking at SO many pictures and am still nowhere close to being done! Wish me luck!

We go here:

We get stuck in this:

And see interesting things like this:

Normally we are starving and I get antsy like this:

And decide to take a walk here:

These empanada's are so delicious!!! They always hit the spot I LOVE the spicy tofu fact I've taken to calling the Holland tunnel the empanada tunnel...Lincoln is the Pizza Tunnel in case you were wondering thanks to the yummy piping hot 99 cent slices! By the time I walk back to the car with these the hubby has normally moved up like an inch or two but at least we have food now :)
