Happy Thanksgiving! I hope each of you, whether you’re officially celebrating or not, is spending some time today (or this weekend) with loved ones, creating fun memories and eating delicious food.
And now, on to my random three things from the week!
1. We are headed to Houston today for our friend’s wedding. And with that comes an end to the 2014 marathon wedding season. A little bittersweet I must admit.
Kartik was Vishnu’s roommate his freshman year of college, and they’ve been friends ever since. I actually met Kartik 1.5 years before I met Vishnu. In fact, Kartik was one of the main players in mine and Vishnu’s love story! And now we get to celebrate his big bad Bollywood wedding to Rathna! I can’t wait.
While I won’t be blogging the rest of the weekend, I will be sharing pics via Instagram. Follow along if you want!
2. Speaking of Bollywood, Vishnu and I had a few dances to learn for this wedding. It’s a tradition (at least with our group of friends) to have people perform choreographed dances to popular Bollywood songs during the Sangeet (pre-wedding event) and reception.
Personally, I love it because I grew up dancing to Bollywood songs. Vishnu, on the other hand, isn’t the biggest fan because it takes him longer to learn each dance. And for this wedding, since he’s a groomsmen, he had to learn four dances.
And while I know he’s a little nervous, I can’t wait to see him shake his bootay to some Bollywood! I keep telling him he’s my own personal Shah Rukh Khan (to which he just stares at me)! Haha.
3. And the last thing I have to mention today is my newest obsession – Serial.
Serial is a podcast where we unfold one nonfiction story, week by week, over the course of a season. We’ll stay with each story for as long as it takes to get to the bottom of it.
I’m only two episodes in and absolutely hooked. This season’s story is a murder mystery dating back to 1999. The host of the podcast, Sarah Koenig, goes back in time and tries to make sense of the complicated story by revisiting all the details, including those that the jury and public didn’t get to hear.
Trust me on this one – it’s SO good!
With that, I hope you have a wonderful rest of the week and weekend! I’ll be back on Monday!
