    This Week In Instagram Photos 

    {New watch and bracelet for my birthday from Aneesh, flowers from my family, and a sneak peek at an fun organizing project I am working on}

     For those of you not following on instagram I thought I would share a few photos I posted this past week.

    After all the travel we have been doing lately, I am really excited to stay home this weekend and get a few things done around the house.  We are going to put up some artwork,  set up our new grill, and find some new patio furniture in preparation for my family visiting over Memorial Day weekend.  We also have a fun dinner planned for tomorrow. (more on that next week)

    Have a great weekend!

    A Touch Of Black

    Last night we had a delicious dinner at Black's Bar and Kitchen in Bethesda to celebrate my birthday. When we were getting ready it was overcase but somehow by the time we got to the restaurant the weather changed drastically and it became windy, cool, and rainy.  But despite the rain, I had a relaxing and lovely day. I started the day with a great workout and got my nails done in pastel purple. I also enjoyed spending quality time with Aneesh and Ariyana and was surprised with these lovely flowers from my family. I was incredibly touched by how many of my friends and family sent me wonderful birthday wishes throughout the day. Thank you!

    Spring Trends To Love

    {long flowy skirt + leather jacket}

    Last night while tucking in my four year old daughter in bed I reminded her that when she wakes up in the morning it will be my birthday.  She then said "Mommy are you going to be ten or eleven years old tomorrow?" I could not help but laugh and get a bit teary eyed too. It was a moment that reminded me of my own childhood and I had a flashback to when I was ten years old, living in Raleigh, North Carolina. I immediately thought of all the things I loved around this age including John Taylor of Duran Duran, everything and anything Madonna, Top Gun, side pony tails with scrunchies, huge earrings, jean mini skirts paired with oversized tops, colorful jelly bracelets, jelly shoes, and swatch watches. 

    I love seeing trends such as denim jackets, neon colors, florals, and lace re-emerge from the 1980's and inspire and influence today's fashion. But I really don't want to re visit trends like stirrup pants, jams, and leg warmers. Here are a few of my favorite trends and inspiration for the current spring/summer season.

    Chili Shrimp With Pistachio Cilantro Rub

    One of my favorite things to do is to hit the local Barnes and Noble, grab a coffee and a few cookbooks from the bargain section, and browse through the books for inspiration and ideas for new recipes.  And almost always I end up buying at least one of these bargain books. While typical curry books contain Indian curries, I liked new curries because it also contains curries from Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Vietnam. One of the first recipes I tried from this book was chili shrimp with a pistachio cilantro rub. It was super easy to make and I served it as an appetizer at a dinner party. I really liked the dish and ended up making it again and the second time around I served the shrimp over salad along with corn on the cob and naan for a quick and easy weeknight meal.

    Whether in your home or wardrobe, white is definitely a hot trend for the spring and summer season and I am loving anything and everything white. Just this week I bought these white jeans and this white lace top and I cannot wait to pair them up for a clean and minimal monochromatic outfit. 

    We are off to Charlotte, North Carolina for our third of five weddings this year. I admit I am slightly tired of getting dressed up in all my sari's and uncomfortable high heels, but I am super excited to stay with my brother, sister in law, and nephew this weekend.  It will be great catching up and hanging out with all of them. 

    Have a great weekend and see you next week!
