Happy Birthday To me!

31 years ago an compulsive sewer with more of right brain functionary was born. She never grew up! rather grew up slowly and realized who she is and what she wants later in her life only after she became a mother! 

A baby was born 31 years ago on this day,and it is none other than me! Yes! Its my B'day today. 

Last year was the first time after having entered 30s i was quite nervous and couldn't handle the fact that i am ageing. But soon after an year went by i realized that everyone ages, the difference is it doesn't matter to those who age gracefully. I have decided to age gracefully and accept what i am and live for what i can be. 

Plan to do a lot of things this year, for starters it would be great if i make to the list of participants in Blogger's Wardrobe (Check my detailed post on this out HERE)

Custom kids clothing launched about a month back has been going on well with few orders coming in, hope to brand myself well on etsy and ebay. Plan to launch Custom Women's clothing soon! (may be in a month's time). I can see brand Adithi's Couture going places, that's my dream, lets see!

Sweet start to the b'day through the gulab jamuns prepared by MIL, later followed by heavy lunch, in between well it was a lazy sunday after all !

Hubby and sis planned a surprise for me and asked me to get ready after lunch, they took off to a long drive with my darling daughter and suddenly stopped on a muddy laden path (short cut supposed to be, a very bumpy road!) which had awesome view of lush green paddy fields (about 25 km from our place!) and had the perfect backdrop for the action shot of b'day anarkali.

Here are action shots

As i was busy posing for pictures, my hubby made sure i was totally engrossed in the photoshoot, i did not realize something happening at the rear of the car! once i headed back to the car, my sister had set it all up, there it was a cake with candle lit (alright i am 31 but one candle is enough to assume so isn't it!) Wow! i was pleasantly surprised! My DD sang the b'day song and wished me as i cut the cake.

After which we again travelled for about another 20 minutes are so and reached a Movie Complex and watched the movie 'Theivathirumagal' nice but bit of sober movie, which ironically i had earlier decided not to watch as i don't like watching movies which make me very sentimental and cry these days! I am more into fun kind of movies! But the movie was nice and my DD enjoyed the outing as well. 

The surprises did not end there, as my hubby had planned for a romantic dinner later at night, after dropping sister and daughter back home! But i was too tired by now and did not want to leave my Daughter behind after seeing the senti movie (about father-daughter love, father is a person whose brain growth is that of 5 year old and brings up his daughter 5 yr old, then the grandfather separates them and seeks legal custoday of his daughter's child and so on... ) Since DD was tired and had to be put to sleeve, we cancelled the dinner date! promised hubby to make up for it another day!

There it was, the b'day was here and was almost done, i was all cuddled up in bed reliving those moments of the day, which was made special by my loved ones. 

Enough of my blah blah now, back to what this site is all about stylish outfits, how can that be left behind on my special day, here it is ...

The Anarkali which i managed to sew for the past 2 days. will give details alongside action shots later, hope to have lots of fun today. bye for now.  For more pics Click Read More link
