Anniversary Dinner | Indian Woman Fashion, Fitness, Food, Style & Travel Photography Blog by Tanvi Rastogi

Anniversary Dinner

1:01 AM

Recently, in a conversation, my husband called me 'easy-going' and 'chilled-out' to one of our friends [and he said it as a compliment!]. Which got me thinking, "Really?!" I mean it's great that he thinks that but I actually always thought of myself as a one-complicated-confused-person. I judge. I am a prude. I like people with manners and personality. And I have even started filtering people from my life and have become picky about whom I decide to be 'real' friends with! [Well, you see when you start enjoying your own company the most; the other person really has to be interesting enough to even bother to strike up a conversation!]. 

Oh Well, I am kind of diverting from my original intention for this post. Believe it or not this post is not going to be about me [*wicked.grin*], well not entirely at least! So I was telling you about my husband. Besides being a die-hard-romantic, he is also pretty easy-going and non-tension-taking-kinda-person [quite a contrast to me!]. It amazes me to see his ability to smile even when things are not going as planned, or if we are near to broke, or even when I am saying the meanest things on earth to him. [Yeah! I know, he is a keeper!]. 

Three years into the marriage, and I believe the fun has just begun. Why? Well, 'coz now he can predict my mood swings and adapt to them in advance [*magic*]. Now he knows what makes me anxious and what makes me happy. Now he knows when to go get me chocolate pronto and when to take that bag of MnM away from me [before I start chewing the wrapper]. And the most important reason - yesterday while we were unpacking after returning from Boston, he saw my shoe collection and said, "You do not have that many shoes! Everyone exaggerates. There is still space for one more rack here!" And NO! he was not being sarcastic! 

God Bless his soul and may we live happily ever after. And in 'non-fairytale-world' is means that even though we might squabble [every now-and-then], but we make-up real soon! Right?

This is how I dressed for dinner at Penang 
[Best Malaysian Food I have ever eaten!]
Me & Mr. Fabulous
Dress - Anniversary Gift [Aunt, 10'] 
(Same Aunt who visited me last month!)
Earrings - ASOS [10']
Shoes - BCBG [10']

  3. I recently made a new friend- it's weird to say that now you know- i mean now that I am not in high school...but I kept wanting to rationalise it :) because *I judge, I am prude* and I too demanding in terms of conversations, else I might as well coil up with myself too, so I completely follow you.
    The dress/ everything about it is gorgeous. But I guess the realisation of being with the right guy, is incomparable. *Touch wood* :)

  4. I hope when I get married, everything works out as well as it has for you and your hubby :) He sounds like he is just perfect for you. Oh, and the shoe comment?! ... WOW!!! I don't think any other man has ever said that to his wife before, haha!

  12. Darling Tanvi...you could be describing my husband! and um... me!

    And again.... your ability to just say what you are and who you are and what you think... I just LOVE it. LOVE.

    You are not complicated. You are complex. Big difference. You are not high maintenance, you have high standards.
    ... you are easy-going because you don't play nor tolerate games. Your husband knows you better than you do!

    Happy Anniversary! You two are delightful and meant for each other.
    ...and hon...a partnership made in heaven is like dark chocolate & chilli, lemons & sugar and dahi mirchi...a perfect balance!

    You look gorgeous! As always! Love the shoes!

Kudos to him for that :) and you are right ..the new fairy tale world is exactly that you fight & fight but make up fast..I mean we only have each other to fight..and what is life without a little masala..:)

    glad that you had a nice romantic day and the dress is fab ...but shoes are superb..love them :)

  30. true dat! Things are so much better teen chaar saal baad than right after marriage as per popular beliefs! We are onto our 6th year and things just keep getting better!!
    I'm sure Hubz earned some major brownie points for saying all those things :P You two are made for each other! Did you already talk about how the two of you met? Direct me to that post please. That is always my fav part about relationship stories!

    ReplyDelete
  31. You look HOT!!!! Love the shoes! My anniversary is coming up...

    ReplyDelete
  32. Great to see people so madly in love, happy for you. Now you looked stunning and stylish.

    I however beg to differ on your opinion of Paris Hilton. You said, "And as for Ms. Hilton, she is as hopeless as the fat on my bum! Neither of which go away easily! :) Haha!" I have scrolled right down your blog, and no where do I find any evidence of fat on your bum. And if by any chance there is even a tiny little bit, at least you can use it to your advantage, Paris on the other hand is good for nothing.

    Thanks for dropping a kind comment, love hearing from you.

    May your day be great.
    Colin.

  33. The first picture is ahhmazzing. Frame it or something honey!! God bless you really. :) And you look gorgeous in the second pic!

    Yeh toh wohi shoes haina jo tum nahin khareedne wali thi? :P Le liye huh! :P

    I totally understand your chemistry. Mashaallah, Tush is just like that too! Thats why I dont want to give up on him. I just wonder where these stupid traditional norms will end up taking me though.

    And about all that sweetness that Ashish is, just one word daahling, no matter how arrogant it sounds: Sagittarius. :P :P :P Ab toh mera khoon ho hi jaayega! :P

  34. aww, ur husband is such a cutie..I am soo happy for you becoz believe me in the long run it doesnt matter how many shoes/clothes u own, if you dont have someone to understand u and love u:-)I wish the best and more for both of u..

    I am also particular about manners and BO:-) In fact, I was very particular that people should have a little sophistication...BUT I met few people who burp the ABCs and they turned out to be such true friends that I have made a rule never to judge a book by its covers..I will still not let go of the BO hangup I have:-) I also filter people and I prefer people with whom I can have an intellectually stimulating conversation. I am not saying I am smart (far from it) but I do like things other than fashion:-) I think its to do with the fact that we enjoy our own company..Not sure if its a good thing, though:(

    Is that another Mulberry I spy or is it Karla's purse for Coach?

    ReplyDelete
  35. I forgot to comment on ur outfit, duh!!

    Love the dress..do u have pics of u standing? I am not able to to make up my mind abt the shoes:( sorry!!

  44. lol @ the other person has to be interesting enough to even strike up a conversation!! Loved it:P Seriously, I'm very picky too..wasn't before..but I think as you grow older it's more about the quality of friends rather than the quantity :P
