South Asia in America!!

Tonight we went to an awesome South Asian First Birthday Party :) My friend Priya has a daughter (Ananya) who just had her first birthday, so they threw a big bash! There were about 40-50 South Asians there - and since I'm missing SA, I loved it! Here's the Birthday girl (below) with my friend Priya and her husband.
Ananya liked her first taste of cake!
This is my other friend Jyoti :)
This is Jyoti's daughter, Parisha. Aashini had the best time playing with her! At one point they started holding hands :) it was so cute :)
They had soooo much food! This is only one table of food. They put the little flags (food labels) in the food just for us :) Priya made all of the food herself!! It was a lot of work! They also had appetizers and deserts!
Aashini really had a lot of fun and made a lot of new friends!
Here are Aashini and I with the birthday girl and Priya :) And yes, everyone was wearing a sari... Priya called everyone and told them to wear a sari... except me - she didn't want to embarass me if I didn't have one - haha! So instead, I was one of the only ones wearing jeans :)
Here is Adam with his new friends :)
Today it was really cold, so we came to the party all bundled up... but they cranked up the heat inside - so we really felt like we were back in South Asia! haha! We had a lot of fun and made a lot of new friends - it was awesome! It was cool to be in South Asia while here in America ;)

Love your friend's name - Jyoti ;)
Our little Jyoti still has not arrived, but we're waiting patiently.

Too bad you didn't get a chance to wear a sari. Sounds like you guys had fun. :)

Yeah Shannon, I thought about you when I first met Jyoti a few months ago AND when I was typing this last night and wondering about Your little Jyoti :)

too fun! that little dress/shirt they had on ananya is gorgeous.

Erin G said...

and I'm sorry you didn't get to wear your sari. sound like you would have loved an excuse to!

Carie said...

Oh that looks like so much fun! You guys look so good and warm!

I'm so jealous you met so many South Asians so quickly. I wanted so badly to be invited to a Diwali party, but didn't know any very well.

How come Ananya looks SO much older than my own (almost) one year old? Is it the hair?

SouthAsiaRocks said...

I know Ananya has sooo much hair and she is walking - so she seems so much older than Aashini even though Aash is older - it's so funny how kids develop so differently!

Anthony and Sharon said...

I've loved all the recent posts! It looks like you guys are having such a great time in the states! I don't think we'll find as many of our folks in the states...but maybe we'll run into a couple! (There's a few less billion of our people than yours:)

Aashini looks right at home!!!

Bethany Faith said...

I tagged you :)

Ashini is so adorable <3
