Happy Holidays

Dear Santa,

I love December and you know why. I get to eat yummilicious rum soaked plum cakes and endless bottles of sparkling wine. I have two wishes for this year, a bank balance that will never go empty ( sigh, I don’t have to work this hard then ) and a magic pill that will never make me grow fat ( I will never have to worry which diet to follow next then ). OkayThanksBye

Wishing you’ll a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year from the Mrs and Mr.

You’ve grown younger by a year!

Image

There are very few Women who inspire me in my Life one is my Mom and another one of them is my Aunt. We often joke that we are a crazy family. As a kid I always looked forward to the letters she wrote to me sitting 4000miles away. Thanks to whatsapp now I keep bugging her most of the time.

Jokes apart, there are a lot of things I’ve learnt from her in life (I’ve never told her this till date btw). Her value for education and to stand on one’s own feet inspires me to be an independant person every day. She makes me beleive that life isn’t a bed of roses and only hardwork is the key to being successful in everything we do. Her nononsense attitude has taught me not to take anything for granted. Lastly and most importantly I’ve learnt to value education and make the best of it from her.

She inspires me every single day the last being when she did an MBA when I was pursuing mine. In my head I was like oh my gosh what do I need to study next if my aunt is studying at this rate. Today she grows another year younger, I beleive age is a number and as you celebrate your birthday every year you grow younger by a year. Happy B’day Pinny, may you have the best year ahead and keep inspiring everyone around you. (Damn I never knew it would be this tough to write about you 😉 )

Happy 1 Year Guys

And they lived happily ever after

Image

If it weren’t for marriages, men would spend the rest of their lives thinking they are a perfect 10 with no flaws. Women are like reality checks for men.Weddings are fun and a lot of work but who said fairytale wedding’s don’t exist. I had one myself! The husband must be thinking only I know how it is after marriage.

At my wedding he said ” I want to have a fairytale wedding like A and U” “I want to fall in love”  And he did.

So the “he” here is one of my closest and he’s getting married very very soon, hence the excitement ( I think I am more excited than the couple)

A happy marriage is a give and take affair, so my dear P don’t be afraid to swipe K”s credit cards as much as you please to.He being a very generous soul, don’t hesitate to demand for the occasional diamonds n Chanel bags.

Jokes apart I am really excited and happy for you guys. Having known K, all I can say is you’re a very lucky girl P he sure will treat you like a Princess. God bless you guys with all the happiness and I can’t wait to be a part of your fairytale wedding.

Btw K is the groom here and P is the bride. We don’t reveal names on my blog as we are too shy of the limelight!

K are you going to be photographing you’re own wedding too??

Mokka Monday

Standard

The best friend happened to call me and the husband was speaking to her as I was in the middle of some work. Couple of minutes I was frantically searching for something, the husband signals “what happened”

I whisper “I can’t seem to find my damn phone”

He gives a look tht said “u cant be dumber than this can you”

He was talking on my phone with the bestie.

We all had a nice laugh about it later,  the bestie thinks I am growing old. Sigh, this is what ageing does to you!!

Beat the Monday Blues.

Ps: It’s okay to be stupid sometimes and to be able to laugh on yourself.

Love and Laughter always

Yayyy you’re officially an Adult, Happy 18th

Image

image

Now before you start wondering if those are mine, let me put you out of your confusion those newborn booties belonged to my baby bro 18 years ago . Wow that makes him sound so big!

Today my not so “lil” bro turns 18 years. Time flies super fast. Happy B’day lil T ( we don’t disclose names on my blog for obvious reasons), you’re finally 18 now so no more fake ids and hiding ur age. You’re officially an adult today and you’re legally bound to do everything you’ve been doing since you were 15 🙂

So my dear lil bro be prepared to hear a lot of “Now you’re 18, an adult and you got to be sensible and  mature, the works”, all I can say is advice is free so take it if you want or push it out from the other ear. These are the best years of your life so make the most of it. Have fun and God bless you with all the happiness, best of health and success always.

Pillars of Strength

Standard

I had written a similar post long back but didn’t like the way I had written it. So I thought, since I am on a writing spree today why not write a fresh post?

So Pillar of Strength?!? Rings any bells? Are you wondering “is she going to bore us with some iconic monumental place she visited”? Relax, it’s not even closely related to any place or thing.

My pillars of strength are my Family. I think for most of us it is right?? Well to start with we are funny, nice most of the times, weird occasionally and crazy always.If someone were to make a reality show on us we would be fetching the highest TRP’s. In other words we are a handful together,each one of us so different in personalities and nature. So thankfully my Mom can proudly say “my daughter inherited nothing from me and my Dad can say “my son doesn’t have any qualities of me”. We are not the typical family who say I love you and I miss you day in and out. Infact right after I got married, I got a bit emotional, shed a few tears and my Mom said ” Stop the drama,your going nowhere”. YES!!

Mom is somebody who has a heart of gold and has the strength of steel. It’s not in her nature to pamper you from head to toe and shower you with praises. She has her own way to show that she’s there for you. Her strength is her personality. Like I said earlier all of us are so different, but I really wish I can cook half as good as my Mom my husband would get better food at home!

Dad is the complete opposite of Mom. His No turns into a Yes in no time. He’s somebody whose built himself from scratch and stands where he is today with his own efforts and hard work. You cannot argue with him on anything cuz he knows it all.

Whatever I am today is and will always be because of my parents, strong, independent, confident and somebody who wants to make it big on my own.

I was the only child for almost ten years and even my brother was born I wished it was a girl and not a boy. When I went to see him in the hospital, he totally caught my attention and I smiled in glee. We are totally different like siblings, he’s like skinny fries and I am like an extra large cheese burger( in other words I mean he’s thin and I am fat). Not only when it comes to personalities but most of the times he acts like the older sibling. I wonder if I am actually ten years older to him.

The husband and myself are like chalk and cheese but what the hell, thats why opposites attract right?? I think I dominate him at times but I never accept it in front of him.

So that’s my Family we are crazy in our own ways but there for each other always to fall back upon. We are nothing without one and another. Life is beautiful and I am thankful, blessed always 🙂

Twinkle in her Eyes

Image

At times some people enter your life like a storm and are here to stay. She entered my life like a gushing stream of water and did not return back ever again.

I always tell her you will give the President of any country a run for their position. Loud, bright, colorful, bubbly in other words a typical Delhi Kudi. If she opens her mouth to talk, it’s only when she sleeps she will shut it. Talks a dime to a dozen. She can beat up any guy and make him go weak in his knees but at the same time has the sensitivity of a girl.

Nature wise I love socializing and meeting new people but it’s very few who I actually let into my life. She’s one of the few. I have lost count of the number of guys who have asked me for her phone nos, sigh!!

Has a heart of gold, appears as tough as steel but isn’t. If I tell her she’s being an idiot n should be sensible she makes sure she proves herself to be an idiot again. She carries this charm around her even if you want to, you just cannot hate her, sigh again!!

I’ve lost count of the number of years we have been friends, but I cherish her presence in my life. Life is beautiful when wonderful people are a part of it. True??

Do you agree with the title R?? 🙂

Grandmother’s 75th

Standard

So yesterday my Grandmom turned 75 years and this was the first time we celebrated her b’day. The truth is we never knew her birthday till like a few weeks back. My Grandad happened to find her DOB n that’s how the while plan of coming up with a b’day celebration came up. Cute know??

I was excited to be celebrating her b’day cuz I really wanted to see how she would respond. She has always been this fuss-free kind of a person who doesn’t like much pomp n show ESP when it comes down to herself.

She kind of knew behind our backs that we were upto something and yesterday she tells me you know “I have the ears of a snake,I get to know everything” (obviously snakes don’t have ears that’s just a saying in Telugu). So though she grunted n grumbled for making her cut a cake n doing a whole family lunch thingy I think she secretly enjoyed 🙂

Here’s wishing my Grandmom a wonderful year ahead with good health, love,togetherness and happiness.
