An Award and a Tag

I have been awarded the Versatile Blogger award by Nancy from Reflections.
Thanks a lot Nancy. It is indeed precious coz this is the first time that I have been given an award. So another round of hugs to you Nancy.
Now before I get to carried away in my pyaar let me lay out the rules for the tag.

The rules of this tag:

 Add the Versatile Blogger Award picture to your Blog Post

 Thank the Blogger who nominated you

 Share 7 Random things about yourself

 Nominate 15 fellow Bloggers

 Inform the Bloggers of their nomination

Now to share 7 random things about myself.

1) I started doing Zumba recently. The newly gained pounds while in India was motivation enough and then the love to dance. So along with a few other girls from the apartment we have started this routine for 45 mins Mon to Thu. Hopeful to get back in shape soon

2) Yesterday was my nephew's 4th birthday. I baked some cupcakes as I had done for his 1st birthday. For his 2nd birthday he was here with us in the US and hence we could celebrate it grandly. For this 3rd birthday we had been to Hawaii and hence no cake was prepared. The cupcakes did come out very moist and spongy. Also got a new cupcake baking tray and now want to try out all different combinations of cupcakes

3)I love mangoes and so does my son. He can devour a whole mango by himself, hence what I do is cut pieces for him but try to keep more pulp near the seed and then devour the seed by myself. Cunning ain't I?? Oh, hubby does not get a single piece. I am mean in sharing good food

4) I finally won a giveaway. It is a beautiful necklace and am eagerly awaiting for it to be delivered. Will post  pictures once I receive it.

5)I got some new cookware and cutlery and glasses. Interest in cooking has now resurfaced. We even got a new plate set for Ritvik (Toy Story theme)

6) I wish I could work from home and not drive to office everyday.

7) Every Friday is swimming day. Initially when I started it was as if tsunami is arriving with water splashing all over the pool but since last week I am trying to be subtle and doing good so far.

Now to nominate 15 bloggers. I do not know so many so will nominatethe ones I read often
