Last week went well, except there was a TERRIBLE storm for a few days! The wind and rain were so strong I had trouble sleeping! Not to mention that walking to class and the University Center was a chore. There might be more rain this week, so I am not looking forward to that. Andrew started classes again and his schedule is rather intense! I have been there for him and we have fun being together, even if we are sometimes tired lol. I went to a couple family parties this weekend which were so fun!! I was a little overwhelmed by all the people I hadn't yet met, but everyone was so friendly and open! :D My family is very small, made smaller by my parents divorce 12 years ago, so I never got to experience a large and loud family. It made me kind of sad, because I wished that my family were at the party too, enjoying the food and the warmth. I realized that I am such a family person, and that living on campus is actually pretty lonely. I have my friends, but we all have our own things going on so it's hard. I am lucky to be able to experience the warmth of Andrew's family! :D Thank you my love!
Anyway, I want to catch up on some posts from Winter Break, and this is definitely an important one! ;) Andrew came over to spend the weekend after New Years with me and my family and it was amazing! We had so much fun just talking and being together~ I'll never forget it! :) We were also celebrating our 11 month anniversary which was January 4! To celebrate, we walked over to Saroor, the Indian restaurant my family and I have always liked. I really wanted Andrew to try delicious Indian food that I grew up eating!
His first plate; notice how we both went rather light on the first plates lol! It's a buffet after all! ;) There's salad, chicken sausage kebab, veggie pakora, potato fritter, egg curry, and rice with mushroom curry. He loved everything, especially the mushroom curry! :D The chicken kebab piece was interesting; it tasted like sausage, and he really enjoyed it!
Hehehehe, my first plate! :D Potato fritter, chicken and veggie pakora, salad, egg curry, and chicken tikka masala over rice! DELICIOUS! I loved everything! The potato fritter tasted like the inside of a samosa, which made me so happy! They were flavorful and luckily nothing was too spicy! The egg curry is almost sweet and is so satisfying to me, probably because I love eggs! xD The chicken tikka masala was delicous and popping with creamy spicy flavor as usual! Everything tasted very good together too, which was nice. The naan we were given was warm and softly chewy.
I was so happy to finally have Andrew taste this Indian dessert, which consists of pastry balls soaked in a sugary honey sauce~ I really like them, even though they are uber sweet. He enjoyed them too, which made me happy! You can only eat one at a time since they are so sweet!
After such a filling and delightful lunch, we began walking back to my dad's house. However, we noticed that the sun came out and the weather was perfect for a lovely walk! It was magical; we talked and shared so many memories and observations! Conversation with the person you love is truly a wonderful thing; I adore talking with Andrew. I love hearing what he has to say; I feel like his words and opinions enrich my world. :)
