This past weekend was a blast.  One of my best friends was in town for a girls weekend with her grad school friends.  Since I know the other girls, I decided to tag along on Saturday for a fun night out in Miami.

We decided to enjoy dinner at Tiramisu, a cute Italian restaurant in the Lincoln Road Mall area (a popular and extremely busy part of South Beach).  We were so caught up in conversation that it was almost midnight before we decided on what to do next.  Since a lot of the girls were semi-new to the Miami experience, Roshni and I made the executive decision to head over to the Clevelander, a fun hotel/restaurant/club spot.  The music was fantastic, so we had a great time dancing the night away (well, until 1:30 am).

On Sunday, Rosh and I headed back out to Lincoln Road to eat brunch at Yardbird.  Y’all, we ordered a ton of food and ate every last bite!  It was so good…I can’t even begin to explain how good.  I promise I will do a full review of this place soon because it is a must visit restaurant for anyone planning a trip down here.

Best mac n’ cheese EVER

The rest of the day was spent hanging out and relaxing.  So fun!


Work is busy right now, and I am ok with that.  I think this is because I know I don’t have to deal with a long commute every day.  Living close to the office makes long work days so much easier. 

It also makes dinnertime prep less stressful.  As long as I have a plan for what to cook, I can get dinner on the table in well under an hour.  For example, I plan on making Nisha’s (and technically Kiran’s) bread poha tonight.  Honestly, it’s been on my mind all day.  Can’t wait to dig in!


I’m really looking forward to my colleague from the UK coming to South Florida next week.  She’s even arriving a few days early so that we can hang out.  I believe this is her first visit to Miami, and I can’t wait to show her around. 

Other than that, I’m counting down the days until Vishnu takes his boards.  We’re in the home stretch now and can see the light at the end of the tunnel (well, at least I can!).  The end of this beast of a test marks the beginning of a fun, travel filled summer – woo hoo!

Tell me about your past, present, future, or all 3.
