Lucky Seven

Seven years is a long time but it can still fly by really fast.

Baba 7aki and I celebrated our 7th year wedding Anniversary on January 12 and we couldn’t believe how time flew by so fast. It just feels we’ve been married for 2 years.

He is loving, he is sensitive he is attentive he makes me laugh. Humor plays a big part in our marriage, we laugh at each other and with each other.

We’ve had our really rough spots and our really amazing spots and spots that just flew by in the chaos of responsibilities and work and just life and after seven years I still love him (he better still love me too or I’ll kick his butt!).

With years we both changed and evolved and met in the middle, he picks up where I am lacking and I pick up where he is lacking without any resentment to each other and it was hard work getting there.

I love how he drives me crazy with his OCD. Hey less house work for me eh!

I love how he is very supportive and he always pushes me when I need it. Could be annoying though when i jsut want to procrastinate hehehe.

I love how he is with little 7aki. She worships him, he is always there for her, plays with her, takes care of her , is not embarrassed to be silly around her. All hugs and cuddles to the point little 7aki runs away from him sometimes, LOL, He just hugs her too too much.

And it helps that he has the most amazing eyes I have ever seen .

But seriously, why would God give him those eyelashes? I mean what about me????? Helloooooooo, eyelashes are a waste on a man. SO NOT FAIR.

And the Cherry on top?

The new watch he got me. Ooooooooooooooooooh yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah. Check out the bling bling.

  17. Alf Mabrouk! seven years may sound like a long time but really time flies and soon you will be celebrating your 20th anniversary and you will be wondering where did all the time go!
    enjoy your years together and enjoy your new watch, pretty nice!

  18. 7aki, I’m not surprised. You two seem to have reached that place of comfortable stability without loosing the spark. It seems OCD and a great sense of humour will carry a couple far!

    Heaps of congrats. 😀

  19. Batoul, Qwaider , Maioush, simply me , diana, sel3: Thaaaaaaaaanx and 3o2balkom kulkom ya rab 🙂

    Mab3oos: Man I just crack up when I see your name, never gets old.
    Tab inta lesh ya3ni daiman mab3oos? LOL.

    Roba: It does seem like a long time but mish tabee3y how fast it flies!

    Whosane: Thanks 🙂 . But where did you hear that?
    I got him a watch .

    Mr. Anon: HAHAHAHAHA @ “2 watches leading to his pocket” . No no they lead to my pocket man cos I take all his money, LOL.

    Hamza: Wheelchairs in 20 years? How old do you think I am. I will be lissa in the prime of my years.
    OK I don’t like you anymore 😛 .

    Bambam: HAHAHAHA. It’s called the seven year itch I know I know, I was just briefed about it on the train the other day by my older and wiser lady friends.
    Don’t worry baba 7aki and I have some anti itch creams at home, LOL.

    Summer: Thanks Summer 🙂 .

    Kinzi: OCD and humor sure go a long way.
    Thanks for the wishes.

  20. Congrats!

    Are they a matching set? Now that would be G-A-Y No picture of his watch? Do you collect them as well? 😉 And most importantly, you think I would be able to convince my wife that watches should be given for every anniversary we will celebrate?

  21. Oh, I forgot to mention…when I read the title, I though you went gambling and were throwing the dice in craps! I can only imagine you at the table yelling out “Lucky Seven” before tossing the dice!!!! That is where I am heading tonight. Canada, yeah bay-bee!!! Come on LUCKY SEVEN!!!!

  22. No no they are not matching. We are not THAT gay 😀 .

    Baba 7aki is not a collector but I am, I LOVE watches sooooooo much that I force him for at least one special occasion a year to get me a watch 😀 . I get him a watch every 2 – 3 years.

    About the wife, hey why not! You could argue that: “How better to commemorate our TIME together other than a watch ?”

    Good luck at the Casino. OK confession, I never gamble because I am a sore loser, LOL. I get angry and I am most probably one of those people they make those stickers for to fight gambling because I will keep doing it , hehe. Baba 7aki is good at roulette, he actually manages to make some money.

  23. congrats 7aki!


    No I’m not shy. At all.

    I LOVE watches.

    re: lashes – no its not fair but hey just think if he wasn’t such a great partner he’d still be nice to look at.

    haha shameless I know.

    I kinda think that if you have to put up with the idea of being married to one person your entire life then you either have a great friendship and can laugh at each other or you have something to look at. Its obvious which of the two doesn’t last but its safe to say that he sounds like he’s the perfect guy for you.

    How old are you if you’ve been married for 7 years already? you can email me the answer 😉

  24. Happy Anniversary!
    I love that watch. And NO it is not gay that both of you got each other watches. Even if you got each other the matching watches. IT IS CUTE. But advise; don’t ware them at the same time, especially in front of older couple, they will think that you too are naive/ high school-esh/ masakeen mo 3arfeen sho jayeehom type of couple. and maybe gigle a little.
    Other than that, congrats the watch. Allah y5aleekom la ba3ed

  25. inmotion: I am addicted to watches.

    Hehe at emaling you my age. I will turn 32 on March 2nd so I was almost 25 when I got married, I was a little pupp.

    Thaaaaaaaaaanks, 3anajd 3o2balek 😀 .

    Dana: HAHAHAHAHA khalas adivce taken, if we ever buy matching anything I’ll make sure to follow your advice.
    Thanks for the wishes.

  26. wow 7aki I am so proud of you. Yo managed to read and understand my comment, despite of all the errors. 3njad I should never be allowed in public when I am fasting.
