Back To Blogging

As Salaam Alaikum,

I got some ‘splaining to do! 😉

Lots of things have been happening since I last posted:

  1. I broke my iPhone, keeper of my passwords and method of my blogging. I had finally ordered the new parts and in the end of it all – complete disassembly and reassembly into a new back housing and everything – I need a new battery 😒 I finally broke down and reset my passwords to get back on wordpress.
  2. I slowed down in my crocheting and drawing. I have some things that haven’t been up on the blog, but they’re not really ready yet.
  3. I had two rounds of painful ear infections (my FIRST time!) and found out I’m probably allergic to one type of antibiotic.
  4. I just found out I’ll be turning 30 in a couple of years.  So I’ve decided to really try my best this time to lose weight and get in shape (that includes building muscle!) before I hit the big 3-0 and become an old lady…

I don’t know if I should blog about weight loss or fitness just yet – I’ve only lost 10lbs so far – or at all. Some input would be nice. Insha Allah we will see how this goes. 😎

P.S. I’m loving my new blog theme/colors!

In Other News…

I got to be crafty in a new, dirty way: play dough! 

I remember when my mom used to make me play dough and we even baked them to make hard objects (mostly “food” for my barbies..).

I used a simple recipe HERE, but I REALLY like the recipe at The Imagination Tree (minus the cream of tartar thankyouverymuch)….. 🙂

I used some powder food coloring and it worked out just fine 👍


I’m getting interested in making some more home crafts to make my boys more busy, any ideas? 🙂
