Since mom had to work today, we are actually celebrating Thanksgiving on Saturday!! That’s when I’ll show all the delicious food 🙂 She made these amazing gol guppe for us before she left – chickpeas, onions, pani puri, mashed potatoes.
I have an event to attend tomorrow so I was getting everything ready earlier tonight to be ready. Since I actually have to work tomorrow!! 😦 Most of my Pakistani dresses are fancy wedding attire, I really don’t have any more informal clothes. I’m lucky that I never buy paki clothes for myself, my mother in law always gets them made for me! But as I’m looking around for my new Maria B. outfit that I had picked it, because it’s the only casual thing I own, I realized it’s still packed in my suitcase from the wedding, where I took it as a just in case there’s another event dress.
I started freaking out thinking I should probably just cancel, but I began digging through some suitcases with my moms old clothes, thinking maybe I’d find one of my old ones. She has so many clothes she’s kept from her 20s, like 30 years ago, and what’s crazy is 1. They fit me perfectly and 2. They’re back in style!! I found 2 that I fell in LOVE with. I never realized my mom had such good style! I guess coming to a new country and getting used to American fashion took a while lol. Can’t wait to wear her dress tomorrow!! Looking at her old clothes I realized she’s very like bold with style, I think I’m going to start gifting her more out there things, like funky shoes, because for so long she only wears what goes with everything or “safe” colors, although she’s experimenting so much more now. I think I’ll surprise her tomorrow 🙂
