Globe Trotting and New Beginnings

Ten things to smile about…

Posted on: December 6, 2010

November is my favorite month of the whole year!
It is the start of the holiday season, it is my birthday month, it is when the weather gets nice and cold AND it’s when you can shop without feeling terribly guilty (SO many good deals out there! :)). Just a whole lot of fun!
Unfortunately this is also the time when I miss our families in Dubai the most because you always want to be with family around the holidays. (Mental Note to self: Plan the Dubai trip soon!!)

So… without further adieu… here is the list of 10 things that made me smile in November –

  1. My Birthday! Surprise flowers, Happy Hour with my work buddies, Dinner at a WONDERFUL fancy restaurant (Quince), and Lots o gifts…. what’s not to smile about??
  2. Our new rug! It looks great, the cats love it and it doesn’t shed! YAY!
  3. Vineet visiting us from Dubai. Had a great time hanging out AND discovered a new brunch restaurant – Canteen.
  4. Meeting up with Amina after many years. It was really nice to reconnect and catch up!
  5. A great trip to Austin complete with amazing friends, tex-mex, bbq and just the warm fuzzy feeling of being home.  
  6. Movie Night!! Once every few weeks we get together with our good friends Nik & Chiku, order take-out and watch a movie on netflix. This month we saw The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. It was a creeeeepyyy suspense thriller movie.
  7. Earlier when the Giants won the World Series and we were out celebrating, I lost my drivers license. Some good soul (a reporter from the Associated Press) found this and went through the trouble of locating me and dropped it off at my Apt Concierge. A big THANK YOU to him. This proves that San Francisco has nice people too!! 🙂
  8. Training with Sahir for the upcoming half marathon! It’s really hard to motivate ourselves to run outside in the winter but we are doing it!!
  9. Spending Thanksgiving with Nik and Chiku and all the yummy food they cooked for us. Currently NOT smiling about all the extra pounds but we can worry about that in January. 🙂
  10. Getting a sweet message from Manali for Loy Krathong. We celebrated this beautiful Thai festival last year in Koh Phi Phi, Thailand with Manali and Terry. Can’t believe it’s been a whole year!

So… what did you smile about in November?
