Warning : MUSH Alert!

I wanted to go all out for our first Valentines after our wedding. So here's what I did
---Went to the nearest store and got lots of stuff in red -- streamers, candles, crepe papers, glitter, balloons, a huge heart(!) etc. Got some lovely red roses from the road side! Also picked up a cute card and a sooper gift for K! It was a miniature version of his Honda CBR 600 F!! Boy, I don't know why but I was so excited to see it.. coz I could imagine the joy on his face! :)
---Came home and started doing up our living room.. I put up the streamers, placed the candles on our centre table, laid out the roses, threw some rose petals, lit up some incense to make the room smell heavenly.


--Made a cute "K" with the crepe paper... don't even ask! I was super excited and went a little crazy!

--- What's a Valentines day without a cheesy heart, right? :P 

--Around 7:30 I called him to find out where he was and for my luck he was like 10 minutes away from home. I quickly turned off the lights, lit up the candles and waited (im)patiently at the door with my phone camera on! I was all set :-)

---- K arrives, rings the bell.. I just leave the door open, In he walks with a stupid smirk on his face!! Hehehe. Was cute!! Totally worth all my effort, I'd say!

That was not all. Next morning, when he was out on his walk, I quickly left the gift and the card on the table. He loved it.. Plus I made uthapam/tomato thokku for him for the very first time.. he was bugging me about it for a long time and what better than this day, right? ;-) We went out for dinner and he gave me a gift voucher from Brass tracks.. yay, more clothes!! Awesome day in all. Hope u guys had a fun Valentines as well :-)
To "our" song --

Random updates

Off late, I've received wedding invitations via Facebook. Ok. Pause. 
Hmm. Not completely against it, but still not too much to my liking. Now don't get me wrong here. I'm not saying I expect a physical invite or anything like that.. a simple e-mail with the scanned copy of an invite can't be thaaatt hard to send, correct? Somehow it gives it a personal touch. When I got married, I ensured I sent it to each person separately, especially since a lot of my friends with either away from Chennai or abroad. I would have hated to create an "event" on FB and invite my friends! But ok two weeks ago, I received a wedding invitation via SMS!! Ok. DRAMATIC PAUSE now. What is the world getting to these days? Was I expected to show up at the wedding? Or maybe it was just a mere formality? And the venue just gave the name of the hotel, I had no clue where it was located. Yes it was in Chennai only. Oh well, not like I was close to the person. I mean not super close... coz if it were that category, then I wouldn't even expect an invitation, right? ;-) 
In other news, a Minister in Karnataka was caught watching porn while the Assembly session was on!! Rotfl!!  These politicians are our biggest entertainers, I tell u! 
I am keeping my fingers crossed for something, I will not reveal anything here until I get a confirmation!! 
My bestie, M is coming back to town... for good... let the fun begin! :-)
