  10. To finally take the Wilton cake course
  11. To meet some old friends, as well as new friends I have made in the blogeshpere
  12. To once and for all get take Soda out of my life (I stopped it for 3 years prior to coming to Saudi, but something in this country makes one just want to drink Soda.. lol)

  20. To practise my religion more (I don't know why its all the way at the end here, but it does mean a LOT to me!.
  21. To make a difference to those around me
  22. To smile more, and talk to random strangers like I used to before I came here

This is not the complete list, but as my son is sitting here hitting my laptop, I think it may mean he wants some time with mama.. lol.. So this is me tackling number one on my list already :D :D :D

Take care.. and God Bless <3


  1. Happy new year my dear , and inshAllah this year will be the best of years and you can achieve all your goals plus the ones in your bucket list above :)

    P.S: #21 you did make huge difference with your words when i was done last week , thanks a lot :)

  2. Hala 7abeebti.. u really are too sweet.. and i meant everything I said. And this is a sincere reach out.. if you ever need anything, an ear, a shoulder or whatever you need, know that I will be here for you, you can reach me on the email I have here.

    Take care.. and I am glad that you feel I was able to help you.. XOXO

  3. hmm,for me, i stopped drinking soft drinks completely for a year in riyadh,then when i flew to the US,due to lack of fresh juiceries in Northcarolina we ended up drinking it again :(

    wallahi i envy you for building up such a good list,i wish u best,i read this post and mama bees post and i am trying to encourage my self to write one,but the last two years were too hard on me,i only get dark thoughts when i think of it.

  4. What I have noticed is that when I sit and really take in the flavour of what I am drinking (soda)... it tastes awful.... I think its the fizz that gets people.

    I am sure you will make great changes without even making a list. And thus far I find you are a great father!


Please leave a Message.... Thanks :)
