Buh Bye 2007...Welcome 2008!!!

Another year comes to an end...and I am going to be a year older in the next three months...Cannot imagine or believe that I am 30 years old...life surely zips past if you have been busy!!! Compared to 2006, 2007 was very mild.

The beginning...I mean the very beginning of the year sucked. Girish's project came to an end and for the first four weeks he was busy looking for another project in Dallas so that he would not have to leave town and leave me alone...

But February bought in good news...Girish got a new project in Dallas and I was pregnant! What more could we ask for! Life seemed to be going on the right track! Then when March came I went back to my alma matter (KSU) for placement interviews and Girish and Shahid also drove down to spend time with me and my friends...it was awesome fun!

Girish, Rama and I went for my first ever Golf tournament in town...The Byron Nelson and got to literally brush shoulder with Veejay Singh and see Phil Mickelson in action...how beautiful that was though a bit tiring...

I turned 29.

Then Rama left town to move to Indianapolis...new project...now the group had seriously gone through size reduction...no Preetha, no Monee, No Rama...Sappe and Thakur away in Austin, Kapila busy with school...it was just me, Girish and Shahid hanging out...occasionally Sammy joined us when he was not with his Aiyash dosth log...Megha also joined us when both her and hubby were in town...but quintessentially it was just Girish, me and Shahid and Sammy once in a while...

But then Girish made some new friends at work...whom we hung out with a few times...things kept rolling and this new group also partied like us...but now I was pregnant I had to skip quiet a few...Shahid's "School-Boy" theme 30th birthday party was a success and it was followed by a Hawaiin theme party for Malcom and so on...

Went for AR Rehman concert!

A Picnic at Lake Lewisville...

Preeti's Birthday party

Adarsh's Birthday party

B and M's Housewarming party

Nalex House Party

My Baby showers...one hosted by my family, one at work, one hosted by Milo and ADT, and one hosted by Giri's mom...Dare I say I was bored...hehehehe...

Runjhun had her baby Ahana born on August 5, 2007.

Life went on, with me busy being pregnant and getting prepared for the darling to come...who was a whole week and two days past her due date and still did not want to pop out...had to induce her and introduce the world to her...Sanjana, born on October 17, 2007.

Nitesh and Gayathri had their son...November 9, 2007...also a week past due date!

One more waiting to deliver, but in January 2008...Seems like all my friends decided to pop around the same time!

Now it is four days before New Year and I am writing my second blog of the day with the idea for another one already brewing in my mind...whatever happens life keeps on rolling out surprises good or bad at us constantly...hope it is mostly good and that all uneven things gets smoothened out in due course of time...

Wish Y'all a Very Happy and Successful New Year 2008 Ahead!
