As-salaam'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu

I can't believe Muslim Wife tagged me!!!.. I actually had to use a few brain cells for this one. Here goes, insha'Allah you don't think I'm very weird.. just a little is fine.

Seven Things I want to do in life:
1. memorize more of the Qur'an
2. help the homeless, and orphans
3. die with the shahada on my lips
4. sew myself an entire outfit
5. snowboard
6. paint a mural
7. plant a vegetable garden

Seven Things I can do:
1. paint an entire house
2. benchpress more than my body weight
3. think before I speak
4. fish
5. draw with a mouse
6. swim
7. cook an authentic dish from more than 20 countries

Seven Things I can’t do:
1. eat a popsicle (sensitive teeth)
2. shout (don't laugh.. it's embarassing when people notice)
3. live without lipbalm
4. eat with niqaab on (some sisters are amazing at this!)
5. write an essay - or anything else that involves writing
6. pretend to care about politics
7. ice skate

Seven things I say the most:
1. oh my God
2. wonderful
3. toodaloo
4. ewww
5. lovely
6. trust me
7. that's nice
and that is the extent of my vocabulary (#5 on what I can't do)

I'm not going to tag anyone, but anyone who reads this, is welcome to try it... and let me know.. so I can check it out, insha'Allah. (and see how many other weird ones are out there)

Asalaamu ALaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu,

Dear Farhana,

Whoa and wow! What impressive list of things you aspire to do and can do, masha Allah.

Now lets talk about The Rock for a moment. He and I have an agreement that once he takes shahada we are getting married. Now I want for my sister what I want for myself but I just thought I would let you know ;). hehehee

ma'a salaamah,

I thought I should let you know that I took great offense to one of your comment.

Under the things you can't do, one of them is 'pretend to care about politics.' I mean, come on! hehe.How can you not care about politics! You should definitely visit my blog, often! :)

Excellent blog btw, too bad I don't cook and I am not married.

Salaam Farhana, Loved your 7 things meme. But what is up with the "draw with a mouse"? What does this mean? I'm impressed that you can cook 20 authentic dishes... that would be quite the feat!

I think I have a new blog set up so I'm going to go over there and see if I can post this meme. When I get it up and running I will come back and post a link.

" benchpress more than my body weight" -- wow! Masha'allah! That's my mujahida right there ;-)

"cook an authentic dish from more than 20 countries" -- masha'allah, I would LOVE to swap recipes with you *anytime*!

"eat with a niqaab" -- haha, it's taking me about 2 years, but I think I've mastered this, alhamdulillah. Just don't ask to see the inside of my niqaab when I'm done, ew, hehe.

That was great : ) Salaam!

Wa'alaykum as-salaam wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu my dear sisters and brother,

Jazak'Allah for all the wonderful comments :)

Hijabi Apprentice:
Masha'Allah! You are sooo sweet, I totally accept your gift!! hehehe don't worry about the gift wrap :D

Whoohoo, I'm happy you decided to answer the seven. You would have been first on my tag list.. but I figured I better leave it to those who want to do it. I shall head over the now to check it out!

Thank you for dropping by. Haha, forgive me for the insult *lowers my head in shame*.. I can't even come up with an good reason or excuse.. but erm, ya politics.. I'm very right brained, maybe it has something to do with that *grin*

I shall check out your blog, insha'Allah..

Oh hey, there is always time to learn to cook, and a lot of muslimahs visit this here blog.. so there you go, you have enough reasons to stop by again, insha'Allah.

I look forward to visiting your new blog, insha'Allah :)

Haha.. I was wondering if people would get the mouse thing. A lot of Graphic Designers I know use a graphics pad/drawing tablet to trace images onto their's like a pen attached to the computer. I have mastered (more or less) drawing with a mouse :) insha'Allah I'll look for some images I've done and post them on of these fine days.

Muslim Wife:
Jazak'Allah for tagging me. Although I don't usually do these things, it does teach me more about myself :)

Insha'Allah once I get my recipes organized I'll post some, and/or we could swap. I absolutely love this would be great!

hehe.. maybe you can teach me the 'eat with niqaab on' thingy one day. They should have tutorials for this..haha.

Hijabi... you still have me rolling in chuckles here :)

as-salaamu alaykum, sweety thanks for visiting my blog, I just love it when I make new friends.

I don't think I can name seven celebrities I like either, so your not alone on that;) I've never been tagged before which is a good thing because I have no idea what the heck it is that you do when your tagged :s But I do like reading when others have been tagged. Okay so I'll be be back soon insha-allah
As-salaamu Alaykum

You're forgiven this time, just don't insult politics again hehe.

You asked if politics can be good?You can check out the comments on my blog to get your answer hehe.

Learning to cook? It's kinda too late. I've learnt to just enjoy eating good food...too many rules and regulations to cooking, maybe that's why there are mostly muslimahs on this blog hehe...and sure that could be a good incentive for me to keep checking this blog, but I'd hate to get in trouble :).

Anyway nice blog, keep up the recipes...maybe I'll try making something when I get my own kitchen!

Jazak'Allah for stopping by and leaving your wonderful comments. Insha'Allah I hope I get to see more of you :)

hehe..insha'Allah I shall go check what the answer is to my question. It is never too late to learn anything.. good luck on the cooking..hehe
