Awakening of Julia Child in me

Hey guys!

This is no recipe post where I write about how I have been able to master another baking technique. This post is when I get all Mindy, you know the kind from the Mindy project, which I do get from time to time. Please be prepared for a long personal blog post where impart my knowledge to this beautiful big world (Wears the smart glasses). I have been asked by many as to what came over me or how and when did I start baking? And the answer to this is, I don’t know, I was probably born with this skill (please keep your chappals aside).

Why do people think ‘perfect daughter-in-law’ is a good idea?

Hey everyone!

The other day, I was having the perfect weekday evening of lying in jammies while I scorch my brains with lots of melodrama, heavy costumes, and not to forget the over the top acting.

With this the hypocritical mother in law meant, how did my son fall for a dweep like you, I mean just look at you. And this common plot of bullying the daughter in law (who I must say, bro get a life, no body is so selfless to get your own husband married off to a scheming woman, just because your mother in law asked you to do so), actually got me to thinking about the whole perfect daughter in laws that all parents want for their not so perfect son.

PS,  long post alert!

Marriage. Are you ready?

Hey everyone!

While making a list of topics of what I should write for a proper post, I thought why not speak about this question that I was asked by many ‘are you ready for marriage’? even after I got married. I mean this is the question that keeps lingering in my head that actually makes me whine a lot to the mister that I can’t do this marriage thing, it’s child abuse (hello big eye roll from husband). And then I eventually stop and get back to normal life (things that don’t include ‘the man’) and I forget about the cribbing. Continue reading “Marriage. Are you ready?”
