11 years … and counting

Today marks the 11th year wedding anniversary for me and Baba 7aki. Just saying I have been married for 11 years makes me feel old!!!!exclamation mark!!!!

What’s an anniversary without gifts? A sucky one that’s what it is, hahahaha.

This year we went totally techie and bought each other a joint gift, yes we did. So here is what we got each other together for us:

1) LG 3D TV. Oh yes you read that right, 3D. It’s OUT OF THIS WORLD.

The movie comes in the house

Little Buddha could not stop saying:” Look Mama, the movie is coming into the house!” And asked her Grandma: “Do you know what 3D means? It means the movie is in the house” Looking all smart and knowing. YES , Buddha is going to carry the family techie torch.

2) Panasonic sound bar.

OMG its wireless

It;s a thing of beauty. And the sound is unbelievable.

So we decided we’ll buy these and not get each other any other gifts. But Baba 7aki being the sneaky guy he is went and bought me the most COOLEST headphones EVER!!!

3) Panasonic retro headphones.

They are green.....GREEN!!

They are gorgeous.

Usually I am the one who tricks Baba 7aki, but this time he managed to surprise me :) .

So yeah, one nice 11 year wedding anniversary full of unnecessary consumption; just the way I like it. Eheheheheheh.

.

Ho’ing

Little Buddha: What’s that noise? Is someone ho’ing outside.

7aki (double take) : What was that? whose doing what?

Little Buddha: I hear baba ho’ing outside.

7aki: 8O ? what?

little Buddha: He is ho’ing the lawn.

7aki: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. You mean MOWING the lawn?

little Buddha: Yeah, ho’ing the lawn.

7aki to Baba 7aki through the window: Hey, baba 7aki, will ya take a break from ho’ing please! HAHAHAHAHA.

LMAO

 

10 Year Wedding Anniversary Part 3

I didn’t mean for this 10 year wedding anniversary blog to drag on forever. I promise this is the last post about this but look at what Baba 7aki got me!

He got me a GORGEOUS Michael Kors watch. It looks soooo amazing, I am going to resize it today. You should see it in person; it sparkles :D .

Baba 7aki has donez goodz

# White ceramic and rose golden bracelet strap.
# Rose golden and white ceramic bezel.
# Mother-of-pearl and white face with golden time stops and crystal insets.

But as you know these kinds of occasions are not about presents they are about …….. nah, presents are fun. LOL.

And he surprised me! Yesterday he was saying, oh the present I was going to get you was not in stock so maybe I’ll get you something next week and I really believed him and he comes in with the bag and I see Micheal Kors printed on it so I jumped and grabbed it! I’ve been wanting one of these watches forever.

So finally baba 7aki was able to surprise me and he was sooo happy

And this concludes the 10 year wedding anniversary trilogy.

10 Year Wedding Anniversary Part 2

BamBam (who’s a good friend) emailed me today and told me that I was a “Poo Poo Head” for cramping Baba 7aki’s style and that I should have let him “do his thing” and I can go buy myself the IPad.

Little does he know that before I even read his email I was feeling HORRIBLE about being a flat out surprise spoiler ( yeah Baba 7aki was a bit miffed) and now I feel even WORSE.

SO THANKS FOR THAT Bam :P .

And then he wanted to know what I got my man so here goes:

I got him this yesterday:

We already have the PS3 and I knew he had his eye on the PS3 move for a while .

I spent about an hour setting it up and downloading some games; we have an entertainment centre that is about 9 feet away from the TV and all the wiring is snaked inside the wall(maybe I will share some pics one day) so I had to buy USB extension cord and set the “eye” on top of the TV to make sure it’s positioned properly and did all this good stuff before he got home. To my luck he was working a bit late and came in JUST as I finished setting things up ; I managed to sneak in some play time, MWAAAHAHAHAHA , my arm hurts though, that move gets you moving!

I wanted to show it to him this morning but I CANNOT WAIT TO SURPRISE SOMEONE TO SAVE MY LIFE so I showed him his present last night…he he he I am such a loser. He LOVED it

Baba 7aki is lucky to have a techie wife I tell ya :D . And don’t tell him I said this but sometimes my technical skills surpass his. heheeeeee . Fo realz yo.

Tonight we will have our dinner and little does he know that I have another surprise up my sleeve; he thinks he got the “Move” and that is it but I also got him this:

I hope he likes it.

And yeah, I will be lucky if I get a MOFO shib-shib (flip flops) after upsetting him yesterday . LOL.

 

Holy Cow 10 years

Tomorrow marks baba 7akis and my 10 year wedding anniversary.

Holy Cow man … 10 years!!!! I can’t believe it.

He’s so cute. About 2 weeks ago he comes in our room and asks me, out of the blue : where is that promise bracelet I bought you when we first started dating?

7aki: It’s in the Jewelry box.

Baba 7aki: Can I see it?

Now I am starting to feel suspicious, because I have had it for 12 years and he never asked me to see it.

7aki (I dig it out of the jewelry box): alright, here it is.

Baba 7aki: Cool, what else do you have in there (he starts rummaging through my jewelry box)

Ok at that point I thought, the jig is up. He is going to buy me diamonds or something for our 10th year wedding anniversary.

Baba 7aki is soooooooo funny, he can never surprise me because he is soooo obvious, HAHAHAHA. Like seriously?! show me the promise bracelet, like DUH. LOL.

So after 10 minutes I send little 7aki down to ask him , so what are you going to buy mama for your 10th wedding anniversary?And I told her, don’t tell your dad I sent you. After she asks him he asked her if I sent her and she said yes! WTH man!!! I just told her not to tell him, hehehehe. I should not send a 6 year old to lie for me cos SHE SUCKS AT LYING. So he sent her back to tell me to mind my own business.

So I told baba 7aki: I do not want a thousand or more dollar gift that is diamonds, I just want an IPad, maybe a watch.

Baba 7aki: But an IPad is not romantic! It’s like a birthday gift, not a 10 year anniversary gift!

7aki: But what am I going to do with jewelery? Tab get me an expensive watch instead of diamonds.

Baba 7aki: NO. I want to show off OK.

7aki: LOL. AHAAAA, GOT IT. It’s not about me, it’s about you showing off. TOO FUNNY.

Baba 7aki: Mind your own buinsess.

7aki: tab what should I get you? You are impossible to buy for.

Baba 7aki: I want nothing

7aki: I have a great idea! You Can buy me the diamonds and I will buy you an IPad!!!!!!

Baba 7aki: HAHAHAHAHA. You are such a loser.

So I have been nagging him for the past 2 weeks to get me the IPad and to put a diamond screen saver on it. heh

How messed up is that? I think this would be the first time in the history of history that a wife tells her husband I do not want the diamonds and he insists on getting them. Crazy stuff man.

So tune in tomorrow to find out what I will get.

 

Rugsplosion?

So remember when I told you that Armageddon hit the 7aki household and everything turned into hell?

One of the things that happened was that the washing machine broke down and to continue a tradition of eggsplosion 1 and eggsplosion 2 baba 7aki decided to branch out a little into: Rugsplosion.

It was one beautiful cool summer night and Buddha might have, could have ,maybe, ate a little bit too much before going to bed because see, life to Buddha is a never-ending buffet; if there is food and she sees it, she is going to eat it.

So as we are putting her down in her crib to sleep we see the telltale signs of ” OMG RUN TO THE HILLS THE BABY IS GOING TO PUKE” she starts in the crib, we take her out and she continues to hurl on the bedroom carpet, maybe a little bit on the wall and finally on one of those really cute little circular Green Ikea rugs that have paw prints on them, awwwww.

Can't belive I found a picture of it online! It's like 6 years old. Paw prints, awwww

So this is the drill at the 7aki house hold if  Buddha or little 7aki pukes, I clean up the kid, bathe, change clothes and put them to sleep and baba 7aki cleans up … well…. everything else.

I just can’t do the cleaning, I would throw up right then and there, and instead of cleaning the baby’s vomit I have to clean up mine too.

Also I have to say Baba 7aki has built a system and he’s very efficient at it ( I don’t know why I giggle while I type this)  baba 7aki treats vomit cleaning very seriously, VERY SERIOUSLY.

Anyhoo, unbeknownst to me, baba 7aki dumps ALL the vomitty stuff in the washing machine INCLUDING that very cute, green, harmless rug, with the paw prints remember? awwwwww.

And then it explodes in the washing machine, all that is left of it is the mesh that holds the thread on the bottom. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

Now baba 7aki doesn’t confess to his crime and he removes the remains of the rug from the washing machine, mind you, not ALL the remains. Then he mentions it in passing, like nothing was wrong about what he did,  that, oh , by the way, there was a rugspolsion in the washing machine.

I GAPE AT HIM, wanted to yell WHAT????? Who in their RIGHT MIND WOULD PUT A RUG IN the WASHING MACHINE??? Instead I made fun of him, hahahaha.

Anyhoo, 2 days later I run a load of laundry and SURPRISE the washer doesn’t work .

Guess what he does? He blames me for breaking it down!!!! Why? Because I didn’t remove ALL the green remains from the machine. There was none by the way.

Men.

I Should have yelled at him when the rugsplosion happened

PS: We had a guy come in and unclog the green stuff from the wahser and we made fun of baba 7aki, teaches him to blame me for breaking the washer.

The Story of The MOFO BIB-BIB

MOFO BIB - BIB

Alright, so as I mentioned in my previous post, little Buddha is a liiiiiiiiiiiiittle bit diva-isk, she wants what she wants and she wants it NOOOOOOOWWWW.

It all started when we were on a mini two day vacation to a beach resort . And as you all know on a beach there must be sand, and because there was sand little 7aki had flip flops (we call them shib shib in Arabic)  with her, and guess who got attached to flip-flops? You guessed it, little buhdda, so she would fight with her sister all the time for them so I went and got her a pair and sure enough buddha took to them like white on rice. She would not take them off for anything. Wore them to the beach, on the deck, in the house, and if I would have let her she would have worn them IN BED.

Now, little buddha was only 22 months old and as we all know wearing flip flops takes some skill if you are a beginner, I mean you need to keep your toes pressed tight around the front piece thingy to keep them on; so suffice it to say although Buddha loved them so much she kept WHINING ABOUT HOW SHE CAN”T KEEP THEM ON.

She loved them so much she refused to wear ANYTHING else on her feet. I am talking try to put sandals on and you have a half hour battle ahead if you before you even get out the door. Every time we wanted to go out  she would start yelling. BIIIIIIIB BIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIB , BIIIIIIIB BIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIB .

So now picture  her bib bib s slipping off her feet EVERY FIVE EFFING MINUTES and I have to fix them because OMG her flip flops slipped off her feet, BIIIIIIB BIIIIIIIIIIIB, it must be a catastrophe. Lets all run to little buddha and fix her flip-flops because the world would end as we know it if we don’t help her.

After 2 days of EVERY WAKING MINUTE OF MY LIFE of her bib – bib slipping off I SNAPPED because they would slip off her feet and she would come to me to fix them with her most perfected whiny whimperish cry, that buddha is a pro, A PRO I TELL YA, if she entered a whiny-ness (is that a word?) competition she would win.

I snapped and I said mother effing flip flops. And people this is a momentous occasion, I NEVER swear in front of my kids EVER.

Baba 7aki was standing there , he looked at me, I looked at him,and then we were both on the floor laughing at the absurdity of the whole situation. I mean we are not talking Middle East peace here people, we are talking about keeping flip flops on a 22 month olds feet. FLIP FLOPS!!!!!

So now if baba 7aki and I find ourselves in a frustrating situation that we can’t help or control all we have to say to each other is MOFO bib-bib and we would be heaps on the floor laughing.

Luckily for little Buddha, and I mean luckily for her OWN WELL BEING, she perfected wearing the cursed bib bib.

Although I joke about this right now but I am telling you people flip-flops traumatize me to this day.

I AM TRAUMATIZED.

If I Win A Million Dollars

Me: What would you buy if you win a Million Dollars?

Little 7aki: I would buy a Unicorn.

Me: HAHAHAHA. OK what would your taita (Grandma) buy?

Little 7aki: She would buy a big giant cook book made out of gold.

Me: Alright, what do you think little Buddha (AKA baby 7aki) would like to buy?

Little 7aki: She would buy a big giant doll that looked like me so she can bug her all day. She really like to bug me a lot mama.

Me: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. What about me? What do you think I would buy?

Little 7aki: you would buy a big hammock and lots of books and you would sit in it and read aaaaaaallllllllllllllllll thhhhhheeeeeeeeee ttiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiime.

Me: That’s actually not a bad idea, I would maybe buy a bookstore. Alright, what about baba 7aki? What do you think he’ll buy?

Little 7aki: He would buy a big giant TV and sit on the couch and watch all day and night and never get up.

Me: MWAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

——————————————————————-

You think kids don’t observe what you do all day? They sure do!

Lets analyze the answers:

Little 7aki: A unicorn? Like really? My cutie little munchkin pie wants a unicorn. I wouldn’t mind one too actually!

Taita: Obsessed with cook books. She sits there and COPIES recipes that she never cooks. TOO FUNNY!

Buddha: She does really follow her sister everywhere and maybe, MAYBE, bug her all the time. For example, little 7aki would stand at the sink brushing her teeth and Buddha would come and tell her sister  to “moozee” out-of-the-way which means “excuse me”  and if little 7aki does not “moozee” Buddha would either A) freak out or B) push her sister because hellooooooooo, she said “moozee ” and why isn’t this other kid moving already?

At least she is polite, I have to give her that. She also says “peaze” and “tattu” .

Me: Phew I was worried she was going to say a computer  or something worse but a book and a hammock? I’ll take it ANY DAY OVER…… Baba 7aki’s TV and couch, LOOOOOL.

Baba 7aki and little 7aki fight all the time over .. you guessed it, the TV. It’s like I have 3 kids I swear.

—————————————————————————————–

What would YOU buy of you win a million dollars? And if you have kids ask them what they think you would want to buy, this was really fun! A good insight to how your kids see you.

Yallah tell me in the comments.

Or better still blog it and link here :D

The Thing I Miss the Most about Living in Jordan

I never thought I would say this but there is one thing you can’t find here in Canada that you can find in Jordan and the Middle East.

Galaxy chocolate.

When baba 7aki went to Dubai it was the first thing I asked him to get me. I said:” I NEEEEEEED galaxy”

And baba 7aki delivered.

Behold the galaxy:

Yes, it says 24. 24 bars that is.

Yes, it says 24.

Déjà vu

Who Would have thought the 7aki household would have another eggsplosion.

You need proof? You can’t handle the proof.

eggsplosion

HAHAHAHAHAHA Baba 7aki is HILARIOUS. And yup, he had to clean it up.

Since this is a regular occurrence at the 7aki household I created a blog category for it. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Eight

I can’t believe it has been 8 years since Baba 7aki and I got married!

Yesterday we celebrated our 8th year anniversary with a nice simple quiet dinner kid free, we decided that this year will be celebrated simply with no gifts or nothing.

Ok that is a lie, both of me AND baba 7aki forgot about the anniversary, HAHAHAHAHA I swear we both forgot!

I got a text message from my brother in law congratulating us for the anniversary and I was like YIKES. and then grandfather 7aki called baba 7aki at work to congratulate him and he was like YIKES.

So baba 7aki calls me and I burst out laughing as soon as I pick up the phone. He was like “walik happy anniversary” and I was like “I KNOWWWWWWW” HAHAHAHAHAHA.

I think he was scared to death that I knew it was our anniversary and I was testing him and he failed . Hmmmm, I should have done that. Hehehehe.

Little 7aki made us a present though :) it’s down there for your viewing pleasure.

Little 7aki art

To the left is baba 7aki. What’s that thing on top of his head?
I am on the right.
Little 7aki wrote Dad and Mom and dictated the rest to taita 7aki .
I wonder what’s worse, little 7aki’s handwriting or taita’s? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

I kissed a Girl And I Liked it!

Can someone PLEASE get this song out of my head???? It has the most stupid lyrics but I can’t stop signing along, if I hear it on the Radio or wherever I HAVE to sing along. Check it out.

And shhh don’t tell baba 7aki I told you but I caught him singing it the other day, HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA.

I told him: “DUDE, do you even realize the lyrics you are singing?” LMAO.

He was like : “Holy crap” He was shocked that he was singing it.

But to his defense, it is a very catchy tune, you can’t help but sing it!

At least he stopped singing: “I’m not a girl , not yet a woman” by Britney Spears. AAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. LMAO.

He seriously needs to pay attention whenever he sings along, he just doesn’t listen to the lyrics. Hehehe

An Explosion at 7aki’s House

Here’s how the events transpired.

I made little 7aki a couple of boiled eggs for breakfast. She does not eat the cheese inside aka the egg yolks , she insists that it is cheese, so she ate the whites and I left the yolks in a bowl.

Baba 7aki does not like to waste anything, seriously, he has a chronic leftover eating condition, if I happen to cook a big quantity of anything and we have leftovers he will keep eating that dish untill it’s completely done, LOL, OMG like he would eat the same food for three days until all the leftovers are finished…Abu jbara il3adeh …but I digress.

So Baba 7aki takes the 2 egg yolks and puts them in the microwave and next all I heard was KABLAAAAAAAAM.

One of the yolks exploded leaving my microwave in a disastrous condition.

Here are the pictures.

The explosion

You should have heard the sound , it was crazy.

The remains

These are the remains, lol, I swear to God there were 2 egg yolks in there.

Lessons learned:
1) I guess you can’t heat up boiled eggs in the microwave
2) Never believe your husband when he says “I will clean up the mess in a bit”

Oh, and by the way, nobody was hurt during the filming of this post.
