Dan and I have been undergoing a major house renovation. In preparation for our move to the new place, we are packing up our 725 sq foot condo. While I was India, Dan’s responsibility was to sell off our furniture. He found a buyer for my dresser, which meant he had the tall task of clearing it out. So that evening, when I got home from work, I checked in with Dan. The first few sentences all started with, ” you have a lot of _____”. I’m sure you can fill in the blanks. But the one that took him by surprise was,” how many pairs of sunglasses do you have?!” I mean really, how many is too many (and please don’t answer this question)?
During my mid to late 20’s, I was heavy on the wedding circuit. And with each wedding, that also meant attendance at bridal showers and bachelorette parties. And with each event, comes the daunting task of finding that perfect present for the bride and groom. Yes, there are registries, but I always wanted to add a little something special for each couple. Once all those couples got married, fast forward a few years and it’s baby time! Not having any of my own, it’s sometimes hard to know what to get. Yes, again there are registries, but how many diapers, tubes of rash creams and bottles can one buy? All necessities but ZERO fun. Then there are those couples who are on to their 2nd or Nth child. What do you buy the big brother/sister?
It sure is good to be back in Boston! I’ve spent the past week and a half, catching up on sleep (darn jetlag!) visiting friends and the dreaded unpacking. Now that that’s all squared away, it’s time to get back to blogging. After a 3 month hiatus, what outfit does one pick?
On April 5th, Trendy On A Budget turned 3! Thank you all for the follow, likes, positive comments and vibes. Seriously, though. The best part of blogging is all the amazing people I have met, some of whom I can now call friends. I’ll be heading back to Boston in a few days and we will be back to our regularly scheduled program!
In just a few short days, this American girl is India-bound! I was given the incredible opportunity to relocate to Bangalore for work for the next 3 months. I will definitely take advantage of every minute I am there to learn and explore. Dan will be joining me for a month in February and we have already planned our traveling itinerary.
With so much to do, see and eat, I’ll be taking a mini break from blogging. However, you can join me on my adventures on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat (trendyonabudget)!
Happy 2016 Friends!
