Just like that I’m back in Atlanta!  As I mentioned before, I am here for Roshni and Samir’s wedding that is taking place later this week/weekend.  I decided to fly home instead of going back to Miami so that I could spend some time with my parents before the festivities begin.

After my parents picked me up at the airport on Friday, we headed straight to Lotta Frutta for lunch.  This place is my absolute favorite “welcome back to Atlanta” restaurant.  The people are so friendly and the food is always good.  Of course, I ordered the Just Veggin’ sandwich along with a Lotta Mora smoothie.  Always a good time!

On Saturday, my parents and I headed into the city for lunch at Chai Pani for my MIL’s birthday.  This was everyone’s first time eating here, and we all loved it!  Phew!  Because I suggested it, I was nervous about the food not being good.  My grilled paneer salad was very good.  The paneer was simply cooked and delicious, but the dressing stole the show.  Delicious!  My mom’s paneer wrap was also finger licking good.  That is definitely what I’ll be getting next time!

After lunch, we went to an Indian jewelry to buy me a new…nose ring!  I know I said I was done with all that, but when my mom said my nose looked strange without it, that was enough to make me change my mind!  My new one is slightly bigger.  I don’t want to risk having it get stuck again!

And the final highlight from the weekend was getting my nails done for the wedding!  I went with a hot pinkish color on my toes and a gel French manicure on my hands.  The lady that did my nails was the same one that did them two years ago for my wedding!

Speaking of the wedding, the first official event doesn’t start until Thursday evening, but I’m heading to Roshni’s house on Tuesday night to spend some time with her before the craziness begins!  I think it’s safe to say that anyone who has come in contact with me over the past few months knows how excited I am.  I honestly can’t shut up about it!

Well, that’s all for now!  Have a great Monday!

  1. I hadn’t heard of Chani Pani before -their food looks ab fab – I love the Ceasar Chavez quote on their website – “If you really want to make a friend, go to someone’s house and eat with them … the people who give you their food give you their heart”!!!
