Weekending | Happy Indian New Year

Happy Monday friends! Today is a special one for Hindus all over the world celebrating because yesterday was Diwali and today is our New Year. It's the time of year where change is welcome and everyone is wishing others joys and prosperity for the new year ahead. Having it be my very first celebration as a married woman was even more special.

Friday after work I headed to the salon to get a much needed hair cut. I was itching for a change and although some people don't think I cut that much off, after 2 1/2 years of growing my hair out and getting only trims in between...this was a welcome change. I absolutely loved my stylist, he did such an amazing job of giving me the exact look I asked for!!

Afterwards we had a pizza night with the cousins, it was fun to catch up with them after not seeing each other for a while. 

Saturday was spent running errands in the morning like grocery store run, Target run for Halloween candy and a much needed car wash! That evening we headed to a Diwali party that a family friend was having. Of course I got basically zero pictures besides a selfie and quick shot of the decor.

Sunday was a late start to the day, but with it officially being Diwali that day, we celebrated by cooking yummy breakfast and enjoying it as a family. Some people stopped by during the day to drop off sweets and other yummy to say we are stocked up! We lit our candles and prayed for good health, joy, prosperity and happiness in the upcoming year.

We ended the night eating tacos and watching my Cubbies stay in the series...couldn't end it without taking a selfie with my babe!

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend! Sad I'll be missing most of the passing out candy since we'll be at temple when I get home from work, but hope to see some little kiddos in between! I'll also be nerding out at work...if you wanna catch some sneak peek's follow me on Snapchat (npat62)!
