Hi, friends!!!  I feel like I haven’t blogged in ages.  I’ve missed y’all!

Soooo…I’m a super bad blogger.  I totally forgot to tell y’all about my trip to Atlanta this weekend…oops!  I don’t know about you, but I often forget to include certain details in my posts, only to remember a few hours later when it’s too late.  Oh well. 

This was actually a really last minute trip – I bought my ticket on Wednesday and flew out on Saturday.  My parents really wanted me to go home and spend some time with them and Vishnu’s parents since we just got engaged.  And of course, I wanted to see everyone as well.  Since we aren’t doing a formal religious pooja (prayer service) to celebrate our engagement, our families met at the temple yesterday.  Both sets of parents are pretty religious, so it was nice way to spend time together.  We also went to dinner afterwards.  For all the Indian food loving Atlanta readers out there, go check out Gokul Sweets (Lawrenceville Highway and Church Street) for some authentic Indian street food.  SO DELICIOUS!

[Note: Another reason why I’m a bad blogger is because I didn’t take any pictures this weekend.  I kind of just forgot.  Oops!  Last time…I promise!]

Other weekend happenings included dropping off my ring to be resized (unfortunately, I’ll be without my ring for two weeks Sad smile), meeting with an Indian designer for outfits, meeting with a decorator, and lots of eating (duh!). 

Being at home for less than 48 hours was tiring but so much fun!  I miss everyone already!!! 


I also wanted to let you know that I finished The Alchemist (my part II review coming soon) and started The Help.  And can I just say that I LOVE The Help…love love love!!!  It’s such a beautifully written novel that’s humorous, fun, and emotional all in one.  If you haven’t already, do yourself a favor and buy a copy because I guarantee you’ll want to read it more then once. 




Half Marathon Training: Week 5

Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday

Stretching on my own

40 minute power walk 4 mile run

35 minute strength training routine

3 mile run REST 45 minute power walk

I felt like I was on track and going strong this week…until Sunday.  As you can see, I missed my long run.  I planned to head out early Sunday morning and pound out 8 miles before it got too hot.  Too bad that didn’t happen.  Instead, I woke up at 9:15 and power walked.  I was so exhausted…I couldn’t even fathom running 8 miles.  I think it had something to do with the weather.  Atlanta is HOT HOT HOT (and humid) right now.  I felt dehydrated all weekend.  I’m going to move this 8 mile long run to this Sunday.  Here’s to a better week!!!

I hope y’all had a great weekend!

Are you a forgetful person?  Do you ever feel like a bad blogger?

  1. Thanks for the Atlanta recommendation! I’ll be checking that out for sure.

    Have you ever eaten at Plant Bombay in L5P? I’m may try it before a play in the are this week.

  2. Love the book The Help! I can’t wait to see the movie they are making of it.

    Glad you had a good weekend with family to celebrate. One of these times you make it to Atlanta we will have to do a quick visit. I know you’re always super busy fitting in as much time with loved ones as possible too though.

  3. Haha I’m always forgetting to include details and pictures in my posts too. I definitely have a bad memory, except when it comes to studying for school. For some reason I can retain that info so well! 😛

    I’m glad you had a good weekend at home! It must have been so nice to spend some time with your family!

  4. I definitely feel you about feeling like a bad blogger sometimes! Sometimes I just feel like I don’t have enough time to fully put myself in a post, and I’d rather not just have a meaningless post. Also, my husband is a teacher, so now that he is home for the summer, it is hard for me to pull away from him to write!
