Wedding Outfits

As soon as my brother got engaged, my mom and I started thinking about all the shopping we’d get to do! We debated on going to India or not and instead decided to get all our outfits from here. I thought it’d be fun to show you all my outfit selections! It didn’t strike me to take individual pictures of myself, so instead I looked through photos taken by family and friends to find these pictures.

Pooja at home: I liked this sari because the blouse was heavy, but the actual sari was plain.

Mehendi night- I loved the color and how the outfit flowed out.

Garba- This was the sole outfit of mine that came from India. I loved that it was all different colors but still went so well together.

Wedding day- doing my sisterly duty! I think my brother is asking if my arm was hurting. ๐Ÿ™‚ As we walked through the hotel lobby, the guests were talking pictures of us.

Reception- I was trying to make sure my plate filled with paneer tikka didn’t make the picture. I guess not! ๐Ÿ™‚


On the way down- My brother and I doing what we call the “India pose”- no smiling, no touching.

Where I’ve Been

I’ve abandoned the blog these past few weeks, but I’m back now. My brother got married a week and a half ago, so I was a tad bit busy with that!

My big brother and I on his wedding day!

The four days were an absolute blast filled with fun events, lots of pretty outfits, hair and make-up, dancing, and of course being surrounded by family and friends! Looking back, it all feels like one giant blur. Unfortunately, the minute all the festivities ended my body crashed, literally. All I did for a week was sleep, sleep and sleep. I couldn’t keep my eyes open for very long and ate very minimal. I lost weight. I was miserable.

Fortunately, things are on the upswing now in that I am able to stay awake. I still have very little energy, a bad cough/cold, and little appetite but I am able to enjoy the fun part of being sick now.

You know what I mean- being able to rest, take multiple naps throughout the day, catch up on all the TV shows I missed, and read a fun book. I just downloaded Mindy Kaling’s “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?” on my kindle and it’s hysterical!

However, I am going kind of stir crazy since I haven’t left the house or worn anything other than sweats this past week. I can’t wait to become a presentable looking human being again and not to mention a productive member of society.

While in the depths of my exhaustion last week, I decided I would treat myself to something fun and/or nice. I desperately needed a pick me upper!ย Well, when my brother and sister-in-law returned home for a night after their honeymoon, they got me a sweet card and a gift certificate for 2 baking classes at a cooking school in San Francisco. ๐Ÿ™‚ I think they felt guilty I got so sick from their wedding (they better -just kidding), but I’m so excited! I’m thinking of signing up for the holiday cookie class — that would be so fun.

Anyway, I hope you all have been doing well and I am looking forward to regularly blogging again!
