still on vacation mode

Hi friends,
I am still on vacation mode and every second has been hectic but fun, however, 10 days is too short for sure. One thing that I found very interesting is, how many people that have been reacting that I am going to change my last name to Islam. I personally don't get it. If your name is Abdullah or Svensson, life can have its differences I am aware of that, we don't live in a perfect world were all people respect eachother. In my case I am going from Rahman to Islam, both muslim names.
Living in US has taught me one thing, YOU CAN BE ANYTHING YOU WANT IN LIFE, It doesnt matter if you are black, brown, yellow or green. OR If you are Wilson or Islam, it's your ambition that decides you faith, NOT YOUR stupid name or color of your hair or face.

I have alot of will and that is what is going to take me, wherever I want to go in life. If people have fear or judge me for my last name, its their problem NOT mine!
Haters are my motivaters....I  wise cousin told me once.....:)

Almost time

Haha, I am having a countdown on Facebook. Lord have Mercy, I just want to go home now and pack my last things and them sit on a plane for 18 hours (some in Istanbul).

And I heard that Eid is this Sunday, sooooooooooooo happy. I am not missing it, cause I was sure it was on Saturday. It feels like an relieve.

Amigas a la Suecia, see you soon

So for the longest time, I have been trying to start a book club with several people and somehow I never realized how much dedication it takes from everyone to be in a bookclub. In a bookclub, part of it is to hang out after finishing reading the book and it's kind of like an excuse to just have som girly time. But I have met these amazing people here and this is my forth try and lets hope it works this time. So book nr one chosen by one if the girls is:

Have started with the first chapter, so far so good :)

Long as week

Why does this seem like the longest week of my life? It’s going soooo slowly. Can’t it be Friday 5 pm already, por favor?My concern right now is if our luggage will arrive in Sweden in time or not, that has happened to me so many times. But whatever happens, happens. Already lost too much hair by thinking too much.

 Talking about hair, that going to be the first thing my will say about me…OMG my daughter is bald. Well its sad, but I have lost so much hair since I moved here but I am doing my best to keep the hair I have. I should actually cut it, cause usually it looks like more when my hair isn’t so long. Maybe I’ll cut it in Sweden, I love Bjorn Axen in Stockholm.

 Today I have a Mani/Pedi appointment with Munia and I look soooooooooooooooooooooo forward to that. Just relax and enjoy for an hour. Everything is pretty much packed, just make up and stuff that I still need tomorrow morning. My biggest weight is my skin product, it’s so heavy and my curler. I always put in them last and get a chock when I feel how heavy my bad suddenly got.

I am going to cherish every holiday that is coming, cause I don’t have any more days off except for the weekends of course. T-2…kililililililllliiiiiiii

I love my Kindle cover

It's almost time

Its almost time for me to go to Sweden and I am having a hard time packing, usually I am very planned and organized, but I feel like I am always missing something. While I am running around like crazy after work, trying to manage everything and my 1000 list, my hubby will pack Friday afternoon, why can I not be like him?

I have not been so active on the blog as you can see, and I really want to but I have to prioritize so much other things and one is my workout. Even if I a dead tired after work, my discipline has not disappeared (thank God) and I make sure I work out least 3 -4 times a week, least 3 times. It makes life easier that my hubby feels the same way about working out, so I don't have to feel guilty. 

Last weekend was all about anniversary and errands and I didn't really have time to pack so I have done little by little this week and its all a mess blaaaaaaaahhh!! OK, it’s late again and I have to wake up at 6 am so need some sleep so I can keep up at work. Countdown to Friday, I am totally going to smile at work on Friday :)

I had put this book on the side for a while, but finished reading it and I thought that "Elsas mode" was much better, maybe I'll buy the third one in Sweden. But I am soooo happy with my kindle little friend.

Friday Friday Friday!!! I just can’t believe it. I am so happy I want to jump. Today, we are meeting up with some great people and going to Rasika, a modern Indian restaurant in DC that got amazing reviews. This weekend I have a lot to do, I have to clean the house and sort all my clothes and finally start packing. I also have to do all last errands. I never get time to do anything on weekdays, this week especially has been too many long days.

T- 1 week to Sweden, feels amazing!!!

Fatta sa mycket jag ska krama mina vanner och familjen :)

Suchi at Raku (favorite sushi place) with my Bff Munia (who will kill me when she sees this pic) and my new amazing friend from Houston who has moved to Maryland. Can't wait to hang out.

My first meeting with RG3 and American Football, Hubby even bought me a shirt and we saw it in 100 degrees weather. 

Me as a football player? Don't think so!

Some Iftari dauats, here with Naureens outfit that I stole, but I have a similar from my mother in law. Only looks good on my with heals, without I look soooo weird.

Celebrated my 2 year Anniversary with my Hubby at Season 52. 
Happy AnI Anu!

My Hubby gave me a new little love that I have wanted foreveeeeeeeeeer! Love to him and this little Kinda.
Now what book should I order?

Work work & Olympics catchup

I have not had the time to blog this week, it's been crazy and I am supposed to sleep right now, sooooo behind my schedule. But I will catch up blogging this weekend. Work has been crazy (and the weekends) but I am more independent now, so that's good at least. I come home and try to run 5 km three weekdays per week and since I will fast during weekends, I only do weights on weekends. Weights are fine while fasting, since I don't get thirsty. Last week I was sick so today was my third run this week (Monday, Wednesday & today), so happy I managed that. I love working out, even if I am tired after work, running gives me energy and keep me motivated and another thing that has motivated me lately, is Olympics. 

Obviously I watch it from the American perspective and at the beginning, I thought I was going to miss following the Sweds, but American athletes are amazing and they fight for gold and nothing less. I get so inspired and their bodies are so fit. I am a big fan of so many right now and today, little amazing Gabbi who won gold in gymnastics. She is amazing, along with Missy Franklin. 

Ok, bed bed bed sleep sleep sleep NOW, or else die tomorrow....

One pic from me going to work, past monday. I usually wear dresses, but sometimes u don't feel like shaving, right?  What shall I wear tomorrow, my first-world-problem, every morning :)

Love these pants from Zara and they were on sale, gotta love that.
