What did I smile about in September!

This was a busy month but the summer is officially over and we are definitely looking forward to the cooler weather.

Ganesh Pooja - we started the month with a ganesh pooja at home on Ganesh Chathurti. It was our first at home and we feel blessed.
Labor Day weekend - Spent it with Faiza and Mehlam and for a change we didnt go too crazy and had a relaxing weekend in Austin (hard to believe I know!)
Little Baby Aadit - we finally get to meet cutie pie. Don't you love that face so cute.
Austin - I love Austin and would love to move back one day but till then we got to enjoy the food cart galore and Amy's icecream. Yumm!!
Family time at D'Vine - one of favorites in Grapevine.
Perfect gift - received a shipment of wine as a thank you gift. I love my camera and am always looking for subjects and I enjoyed taking pictures of the bottles as much as I enjoyed drinking some of it.
Meet our new Buddha - our old statue was broken and I have spent months finding something I love. I saw this piece and fell in love with it. So calm and so peaceful!
The Sanghavi's and Solanki's visit us - We had so much fun with Raj, Kaj, Kanan and Siyona. This was our first baby visit and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
Grapefest - doesnt that look so delish?
Litte baby cheeks - Siyona! - You would think babies love toys but no they love cables, tupperware, plastic spoons and straws - lucky for us we had plenty of those. She was our constant entertainment and we miss her soo much. How can you not miss little munchkin!
Happy 30th Birthday Aval - This has been a long year for him but things can only get better now. Please join me in wishing Aval a very Happy Big Birthday!

What did I smile about in August!

Phew! What a hot summer - we had atleast 60 days over 100degree weather in Dallas. But end is in sight and we are looking forward to some cooler weather and lower electricity bills...
Lollapalooza - Started the month off in Chicago for training again which extended into a girls weekend. Got to see Cold Play perform and they were great!
Chicago Architecture tour - I have been to Chicago several times but have never been on this tour.
Gun Range - We have been talking about going to the range for a while and we finally did it. It was sooo much fun
Chianti' Birthday! - Chaitni is going to kill me for this but I love calling her that. We celebrated at Sunset lounge and it was a fun night.
Maximo Heat - the yummiest margarita I have had in a while with its spicy ingredient. You should try it.
Hiatus - I have bought several Groupons for this spa and I love it. I am big fan of Aveda products so I finally gave in and became a member. This is going to be an amazing year of pampering myself with facials, mani-pedi's, massages and body treatments.
Happy 30th Faiza - We couldnt celebrate it together but we made up for it in September but I sure she enjoyed her birthday present all month long!
Varsha mum's birthday - lots of birthday's in August. Check out the flower Amit got her - awww what a sweet son.

Family - Amit's mama is visiting Texas for the first time and it was nice to see him for the first time. This is us at dinner to celebrate V mum's birthday and Deepak mama's birthday.
Bedroom Accent wall - Amit and I moved into our house years ago and didnt really spend too much time decorating. And so that time is here we started with painting our bedroom accent wall.
