The Acai Bowl!!
Yesssss! I finally got to try one.. am I a fan? Not as much as I thought I would be. I just saw this trendy food item and was drawn to it by its popularity and I fiend for it long enough.
Finally today, I had the opportunity to go to Jamba Juice and order it for myself and my Nasi.
It was ok, but I don’t like honey or Bananas, both of which were heavy right on top of the thing even tho I asked for half the serving of Bananas to be replaced with Strawberries. Over all it was yummy and since I’m trying to gain weight, I loved that it was 460 calories from pure fruit and natural sweeteners.
It was a little under $8 which is typical for Jamba Juice. I wouldn’t of paid over $10 for it but I do think they should offer a smaller size for a little less because me and my son couldn’t finish it.
If I was to purchase it again I would say no banana, extra strawberries, half the granola and extra coconut… mm my mouth is watering just thinking about it!
The best time of year is about 4 weeks away.. The holy month of Ramadan.
I am so excited for yet another opportunity to again grow closer to Allah and really focus on myself and use this time to reflect on how I can be a better Muslim, wife and mother.
Last year I was pregnant and I didn’t fast.
This year, I’m really looking forward to making true intentions and following through strong. Inshallah
Ish absolutely loves Chucky Cheese while Nas isn’t so sure about the guy in the car with them. I couldn’t imagine life without these guys. I’m so blessed Alhamdulillah
Oops! Time flys doesn’t it. It’s been a year since I posted last on this blog that I was supposedly going to take seriously. Not only does time fly but it changes things emensly. Since my last post about the struggle a year ago, my struggle has changed and changed again. #change #timeflies
That baby boy I was talking about being pregnant with, is now 9 months and boy is he the most precious little thing Alhamdulillah. He is very advanced, he says two words (Hi and Dada). He can stand on his own and walk with help. He is working on his 4th and 5th tooth, like seriously the kid has no intentions on just being a baby. Him and his almost 3 year old brother definitely give me a run for my money in every way possible. #boymom
I have so much to talk and vent about but it’s just figuring out what I want to expose and what I want to keep private. Things are very hard for me to speak about because the way my anxiety is set up, telling a story I might as well be living the experience all over again. Typically when you have an unpleasant experience you don’t want to revisit that and/or have to explain or defend yourself to the less understanding.
Being a wife and a mother is not easy. I always said this was what I wanted in life was just to be a mother and a wife. But “JUST” shouldn’t be put before the terms mother or wife. Being a mother is by far the hardest thing I’ve ever experienced emotionally mentally and hell in the beginning even physically.
I’ve been tested in ways I never thought I would be strong enough to survive. But I did and continue to survive with the help of Allah SWA every day. & I hope to be comfortable enough to share one day.
I could ramble and jump from subject to subject but I hope to become more consistent in this and with that, details and order will come Inshallah.
The struggle of being 6 months pregnant, as summer approaches, while trying to dress appropriately but still “cute”. Everything makes me look like the house I am lbs… (laughing but serious) I could literally complain aaall day but I try to not be so negative.. instead grateful, that my baby is healthy and growing. Just keeping in mind that everyday I’m a day closer to meeting his cute little face, Alhamdulillah.
This boy MUST be getting molars. In his whole almost 20 months of life, never has he ever cried in pain the way he is now.
Salaams! Hmm whats my story..? My story is too long for this one blog post but over time I’m sure we will cover it all. My short story is this.. I am a 25 year old revert. I took my Shahada in October of 2015 and it was the best thing I’ve ever done. Mashallah.. My first son was born in August 2015 and he just opened my eyes to a different purpose of life, Alhamduillilah. In March of 2016 I met my husband and now I’m a stay at home mom who couldn’t be happier or feel more blessed with my little family. This Aug we will be expecting baby boy #2 and I’m soooo excited.
I’m fully on my deen, everyday I strive to be closer to Allah as well as be the best version of me, a young mother and wife. I wear my hijab faithfully, its been a journey to get to the point I am at now and I’m proud of my transition. Being that I’m a hijabi I’ve had to tap into a whole separate side of my own style to still be modest as I express myself through my clothing.
Just.. bare with me as I randomly express myself on this blog as an outlet and I’ll try to keep it as together as possible. Inshallah, as I grow I will find a direction to take and keep this in but then again if not who cares… Asalaam Walaykum.
