Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee....... So excited because we are going to Saudi Arabia in less than a week!!!!!!!!Alhamdulillah. I feel like bouncing off the walls!! lol ;) It has been over a year since the last time we were there. We going to Makkah and Madinah again, insha'Allah. This time we plan to stay in Makkah longer, last time we only stayed in Makkah for 1 1/2 days.
My hubby's Mother and Brother are also going to go to Saudi, so this will be the first time my hubby sees his Mom and Brother in 6 years! It will be my first time ever meeting his Mom insha'Allah.
That alone will be so cool :) Ahh everything will be cool! I even love Saudi Airlines, lol. I love their "halal food".. It is so cool, the pilots make dua and takbir over the loudspeakers before take off. It's such a wonderful feeling to hear that. Masha'Allah. Everyone on the plane is usually muslim. There is even a little place in the plane where people pray.. and the tv's show the direction of the qibla and verses of the quran......... ahhhhhhh yeah, I'm even psyched just to be flying on Saudi Airlines, lol. It just feels like a piece of Saudi, ya know?
I can't believe we are going again. It's like a dream. Last year we could only stay for 3 weeks. This time we are going to try to stay for 2 months, insha'Allah. I can't wait go to Masjid Nabawiyyah and to the Haram in Makkah again. Can't wait to drink zamzam water again........ Can't wait to go to Al Tahaj (chicken restaurant, lol) again. It's so cool in all the restaurants there. For the sisters, there is always places that are private so you can uncover your niqab and eat in peace and privacy, so nice :) Alhamdulillah.
I bought a backpack today, the kind that you can wheel on the ground like luggage. I'm starting to pack things here and there. We don't have too many things to pack, so that is good. Mostly Safiyah's diapers take up alot of room. Of all the amazing things she has learned, she hasn't learned to potty in the potty yet. She sits, and does nothing,lol, just sits! Anyways, she'll learn when she is ready, insha'Allah. I really hope she is a good girl on the plane. It's an 11 hour flight. I hope she sleeps through most of it. Hubby bought plane tickets for seats next to the window, so we will have the whole row to ourselves, insha'Allah.
I do feel depressed knowing I would have to leave and come back home. We would stay forever if we could. Saudi Arabia does not give citizenship though. But we still dream of living there.
After a much needed break, I am back. PinkStarSunShine.Net is back from Hiatus, with an improved look and some improved graphics :)
Also have a new layout here for my lj, hehe. It's from a layout I offer on my site, I think it's cute...anyways..
Well, Safiyah had dropped *my* laptop, causing it to be destroyed. It doesn't even turn on anymore. All my html files were on my laptop. I also had deleted everything in my ftp prior to that, therefore everything was pretty much gone. I had to start from scratch with my domain. Luckily, I had my layout and main page on my hubby's laptop, which I am now using.
Pretty soon this laptop will be mine :) Insha'Allah. Hubby is getting yet another one. We have gone through so many computers. My hubby likes to always keep up with the newest computers. He's so cool, hehe :)
Anyways, last weekend I went to the N.Y. Aquarium in Coney Island, with my Mom and Safiyah. It was so fun, Safiyah got to see fishies for the first time, Alhamdulillah. I had planned to take her to Astroland also, right next to the aquarium. It's an amusement park, and they have kiddie rides also. But it was waaaay to crowded, there's was no way she could have fun. I was so surprised how crowded Coney Island was, never seen it that crowded before. Just walking in the streets near the Amusements was like standing on a line! Astroland is cool though. For Eid (muslim holiday), they usually have *Muslim Day* were all Muslims go and have discounts ;) They even have Twins Day, where twins have discounts, and other things like that.
Anyways, I'll probably be working on fixing pages on pinkstarsunshine.net for a while. I am still in the midst of making a site for muslim sisters, yes I have not finished it. It should take a while before I ever release that. I am also trying to help build an islamic website for my hubby's brothers since they need a little help.. so I am very busy when I am ever online these days. So I don't have much time to talk to anyone online or email people back, please understand if I do not always respond right away.
Anyways now, I'll leave you (whoever actually read this) a cool link to go to: TeenFreeWay.com. Very Cool! Has a bunch of freebies and samples you can send away for! :)
