Memorial Day Trip - Day 3

The third and last day we had decided to go to Aurora Temple at Chicago. We got ready, had complimentary breakfast from hotel and left by 10:00 am. The temple was an hour's drive from the hotel. After doing darshanam we went to the cafeteria to get food for the journey back home. There I saw medu wada and could not control my temptation. We ordered wada/dosa which was super yummy. Then we packed curd rice/tamrind rice and upma for our journey back home.

The return journey was one long drive home with a one stop halt for lunch.
Thus ended our family vacation to Dells-Chicago

The 2nd Baby Shower

This Sunday i.e 29th June 2014 I had my 2nd Baby shower. You can read about the first one here

This time I did not have any intention of having a baby shower done. Thursday nite I was talking to friends and one of them asked if I did it. I said, 'No' and then she suddenly said to another friend..Let's do one for her.
And so they planned and got everything ready to be done for Sunday. My main agenda was to not go into labor by then.
7 families decided to come with 1 item each, we decided to make Papadum and Payasam.
Sat evening G went and bought flowers and chocolate and fruits etc.
Sun morning after waking up and having breakfast I draped a Saree, since none of my blouses fit I put a T-shirt and a new Saree.
Everyone came by 11:15 and started arranging all the items on the table. They started at 11:40 by putting chandanam, kumkum,rice and bangles.
Once done we all ate, there was a variety of items, lemon rice, curd rice, wada/chutney,coconut rice, tamrind rice, kesari, mushroom biryani,plain rice,sambhar , papdaum and payasam.

Everything was yummy and delicious. There was so much left over we asked everyone to come at night and have dinner too.
Thus ended a beautiful day. A big Thanks to all my friends for doing this.
