Happy Monday!!! Whoa what a great weekend I had. We have around 12 Indian families, in our community who are pretty close. So from the past month we decided to host our first get together party in the community and decided Diwali is a great occasion.
After lots of email exchange, meetings, meal plan, food prep, buying gifts, deciding about games for the party.
The party was from 6pm – 11 pm on Friday night. We all decided to dress up in Indian Attire and all the women and kids were so beautiful.
We had a huge spread of delicious food, with 2 appetizers, main course and couple of desserts.
Also we conducted couple of games such as Musical Chairs for toddlers, men, women and big kids, bingo and some trivial games.
We also lit fireworks, the kids were so excited.
It was so fun, and we are planning to have such get togethers once in two months, so we all can enjoy.
On Saturday, we shopped till we dropped. Seriously Old Navy has all the shorts for men on clearance, so we bought for my husband, fil, my father, brother etc. Also bought lots of flip flops(2$ each), couple of pants for my daughter.
I also ordered my Halloween costume from amazon. This is the first time in 6 years I am gonna dress up and I am excited. I am gonna be Cleopatra and this is link for the dress.
And my daughter is going to be princess Elsa. I fell in love with this dress and cant wait to dress her for Halloween.
Sunday was just regular chores, meeting friends.
