Globe Trotting and New Beginnings

Archive for October 2010

Hello All!!
September was a whirlwind. There was soooo much going on that the month just flew by!! I cannot believe that the year is almost ending. Fall is here and soon enough holiday season will be upon us. With all that was going on in last month, I think I might have more than just 10 things to smile about in September 🙂

1 – We spent Labor day with Lubna and her brothers in Yosemite National Park. Yosemite is gorgeous! We did 3-4 hikes in the 2 days that we were there and it was just so beautiful and serene.

2 – Manish, Girja, Jai, Prashant and Pavitra visited us. Had a fun fun time with everyone especially little Jai.

3 – I ran my first Half Marathon!!! It was an amazing experience. The last 2 miles were the hardest but Sahir ran them with me so thats what got me through it!

4 – Signing up for the Nike SF Womens half Marathon in Oct! This is the one I originally wanted to do and it was completely sold out but I managed to find my way in. It just goes to prove how far a girl will go for a Tiffany’s necklace  the finishing medal 😀

5 – An impromptu work visit to Minneapolis. I got to see Mall of America and compare it to Mall of Emirates (which is apparently based on the idea of Mall of America). Yea… there is no comparison. MOA is huge and big but MOE beats it hands down!

6 – Sahirs parents came to visit us. We had SUCH an awesome time with them! Shopping, sight-seeing, cooking, gossiping. It’s always so much fun with family. Now the house is so empty 😦 I miss them a lot!!! 

7 – Watching the Opera (Aida) with Sahir. Never thought I would understand it, let alone enjoy it! It was beautiful! Definitely want to go to more.

8 – Watching the musical Dreamgirls with Sahirs parents. It was really entertaining and we had a great time.

9 – Celebrating Sahir’s big 3-0! We had a party at home with family and friends and Sahirs mom cooked up a huge feast! (I helped :)) We had another party with other friends over the weekend.

10 – Shekhar coming to visit us for Sahir’s big 3-0. It’s always a crazy party with Shekhs!

(Bonus) 11 – Giants going to the Playoffs!!!! YAY! The only thing I dislike about it is that we can NEVER find parking. Oh well… that’s the fun of living in SF 🙂

So what did you smile about in September? 🙂
