We threw a surprise engagement party for our sister Chaya and her fiance Russ a few months ago, endearingly titled “Fishpony Soiree 2014.” To align with our awesome event title, we knew we wanted to have a beach themed party with beach themed crafts. [More on the backstory of the title in a separate post, […]
One of my coworkers who sent this video to me today to cheer me up after a crazy stressful couple of weeks at work. Even if you’ve already seen it, it’s well worth a second (and third and fourth…) viewing. Happy Friday!
Since starting our family yearbook two years ago, we have had a lot of fun deciding what gets included and how we choose to remember all of the important events that have occurred in each of our lives. Of course, we choose to include a lot of the typical important events, like: Birthdays, especially milestones: […]
Goodness, if this doesn’t make you feel all warm and squishy inside, I don’t know what will. There is just too much internet cuteness out there today! Have you guys seen these videos yet?(And, Michael, if you’re reading this… I think I know what I want for Christmas ;-)) Puppy Presents Bring Tears Of Joy […]

Happy Onam, everyone! Onam is one of (if not, the) biggest holiday in Kerala, the state that our family is from in India. As you guys know that we’re first generation Indian-Americans. This has led to us being a little bit removed from knowing many of the details and the culture around holidays like this. […]
I LOVE BAD JOKES. The worse, the better. And I don’t mean crass or gross jokes. I mean the kind that 10 year olds like. Like this: Also, how funny is my BF for even coming up with this sort of weird but AWESOME idea to do this?! Further proof that love is mutual weirdness […]
In the past twenty years, our family has gone from living in New Jersey to being scattered to nearly the four corners of the United States. Our parents immigrated to New York, NY in the late ’70s, and from there, moved progressively further south — from Manhattan to northern NJ to central NJ. After we […]
Anil, one of our cousins, passed away in the early morning hours on March 3rd, from complications due to some vague form of cancer (and/or other health issues…I still don’t fully understand what happened).
