Pleasantly Surprised


Today was actually tolerable.

Maybe even bordering on awesome.

Thank You God.

Instead of the traditional agenda, we went to the bigger masjid and hung out for a little bit finding family, eating halal pepperoni pizza (relax! It was only beef lol) and I got a new maxi dress! (This is such a nice quality fabric too :DDD By now I have like 4 maxis?)

Then we, my immediate family only, went to an Indian-Pakistani Cuisine restaurant and ironically, although most of the customers were muslim they still stared at my hijab and abaya.

Maybe because I actually kept my
on after the prayer instead of quickly disposing of it.

Anywho, we came home afterward and I spent the rest of the time contemplating how fun Ramadan was.


I loved having something to look forward to (iftar) and the fact that we were all more or less closer during this blessed month!

My plan was to avoid music for the entire month (it worked out alhamdulillah) and now it's not so much of an ingrained habit to pick up my iPod and just drift off.

I also tried to incorporate sunnah prayers and insha'Allah I'm still going to work on these after Ramadan is over.

I can't wait until next year insha'Allah!

I hope you guys also had a fantastic Eid!

awesome! I'm glad your day was great! Eid Mubarak sis.

I loveeeeee maxi dresses too, I always have to resist buying a new one.

I love Ramadan too but I also love the new "starting from scratch" feeling at the end of it. Like starting a new year and trying to keep up with all the Quraan reading and prayers. It feels nice.

I unfortunately don't miss ramdan. I just wasn't with it this year. Even Eid was off for me. I'm used to friends, family, presents,and love. This Ramadan/Eid just wasn't that. & I felt like I was trying so hard.

Controlled Chaos: Your welcome and YEAH lol I'm still here, just a very long week :D

Artistic Logic: I have like 5 now! LOL Way too many. And I love that fresh clean feeling after ramadan too, but lately I've falling behind in so many areas of my life, including spiritually T.T

Perplxin: Taken on more than you can handle? Insha'Allah next year :/
