Ramadan 2017

Ramadan 2017
Ramadan 2017

The most difficult part of being away from Family is when you have to start a new tradition of your own….

A New place…

A New life….

A New beginning…… 

This Ramadan is another “NEW” and will be very different for me…..

 

No Twice a week Futoor at my Mom’s, no hanging out to the wee hours with my sister M playing cards and eating “Hab” (seeds). Read the rest of this entry

Mother’s Day…The day after

Mother’s Day…The day after
Mother’s Day…The day after

For the first time since I became a Mom I can honestly say I have had a “Real” Mother’s Day….. 

I mean sure I got the little cute things that the girls made at pre-school, or kindergarten or school….

An extra hug here or there…..

But not a real official celebration of me

SHOCKING right!

I think the girls were always in some activity and the importance of celebrating was secondary…..

I am thankful that I do get my “me time” once in a while but today I would like to share My Mother’s day Wins of 2017

 

 

So here goes….

MY Mother’s Day List

♥ I got to sleep in until 9am (hubby took care of the girls)

 I got to take a nice long un-interuptted shower.

My morning Tea was delivered to my room

 I got the most creative home-made card from Jennah featuring photos of hubby, Jennah & Zeenah with a Mom-trivia identifying me as “A Cooking Mom” 

♥ Zeenah made a little pot for my jewlery with the cutest flowers and a thoughtful card highlighting how much she loves our morning hugs and cooking together

 I got to wear a DRESS & HEELS

  We went to Moxies for brunch

Got the cutest flowers  in my favorite color….. PURPLE

Got to go to Michaels for fun and just browse

Baked Brownies with the girls

Watched Bedtime Stories cuddled up as a family (If you haven’t watched the movie its adorable! LOVED IT!!!!)

Made Roasted Potatoes with Sole for dinner

Endulged in our homemade Brownies

As much as I resisted all temptations to do housework I just couldn’t, therefore…..

Washed and Dried TWO loads of laundry

It’s been a great day!!!

How did you spend mother’s day????

On this Mother’s day my family focused on me by Making life Memorable as a Mother

Big Shout Out to @youbabymemummy from you baby me mummy for my list inspirations!!!

You Baby Me Mummy

Mom, Mother, Mommy, Mum, أمي, ماما

Mom, Mother, Mommy, Mum, أمي, ماما

There are so many names that mother’s around the world are called but no matter the name used the love for a mother is universal. Cherish and love your mommies!!!

A big shout out to the person that I am proud to call Mama from miles and miles away….  and I find myself being her replica!

Making life Memorable as a mother and a daughter!

Mother’s Day Gift from David’s Tea

Sometimes it’s about appreciating yourself….

I find so many time I’m just busy thinking of everyone around me and I forget that I have to treat myself too.

While we were at Southgate Center I realized hey what’s more special than buying a few treats for myself and call it my own Mother’s day gift for Myself.

Soooooooo

 I indulged…….

and

I splurged……

and

I stocked up

on a few teas and a little bit more from what is now my favorite tea store…..  DAVIDs Tea

I just can’t believe it took me that long to actually go in and buy some things from there. I think it was probably avoiding the inevitable of spending more than I need to but its ALL very much worth it!

 

I couldn’t wait to come home and make me a cup of tea.

Making Life Memorable one sip at a time!!!

Brunch At Moxie’s

Brunch At Moxie’s

Every Weekend there’s always a dilemma in our house as to where to go out for breakfast. Coming from Kuwait where it’s basically Restaurant-Mania I find it extremely challenging  in Edmonton. Maybe because not everything is centered around eating as it was back home??? Or possibly I’m not in the IN CROWD never the less we still have to research convenient and nice breakfast places.

So by pure luck and coincidence we found out that Moxie’s has one greaaaat breakfast. My personal favorite was the Smoked Salmon & Avocado Bagel.

AAAAAAAnd better yet they are having a Mother’s Day Brunch!!!
