Eid prep...

So I am currently up watching Dexter (I'm halfway through season 3) on my dad's on demand cable and preparing gifts for Eid. Last Eid was a mess since we were in the middle of moving, so I have plans to make this one nicer. I am planning on making a pinata... And I got some nice outfits to go to the prayer in, all cute and matched. Also, I am going to hang some lights, insha'Allah. I am going to do cookie trays for the kid's teachers.

I like the whole gift giving thing so much. The one weird thing I am struggling with is a gift for DH. It feels strange to buy him something because I know he has such specific ideas for himself and it's his money I'm spending!LOL

The upshot is that I got the kid's desks today, and I really like them. I still have to get them some supplies, and some lighting.

So all of you out there getting the house ready for Eid, I wish you luck! I for one am getting excited;)

Hi,
Happy Eid! Don't feel bad, I have a hard time buying for my husband too!
I was wondering if you mind sharing your conversion story sometime on your blog??? How did you come to Islam and was your family accepting? I'm a convert myself and things just have not come as easily as I had thought they would.
Thanks,
A sister
p.s. I love your blog!

Conversion story... I could dust it off and post it, insha'Allah.

Mona, my kids dig the pinata thing... And opening gifts. I try to have some fun board games and of course food galore. We go to Chucky Cheese or some family fun center most years too. Check out the family fun website for party ideas. Google it and you should find it right away.

I have not seen Dexter but have you seen Little Mosque on the Prairie. Here is a link where you can watch it online; http://watchlittlemosque.com/
It is the funniest show ever! I watch it when I'm feeling down and it always cheers me right up.
Have a wonderful Eid!

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
Nowadays, I'm happy and lucky , I begin take up real income.
It's all about how to select a proper companion who utilizes your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, and shares the income with me.

You can ask, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:
