My 2019 Vision Board!

Hi all!

I finally got around to finishing my vision board and it’s not the very best, but it’s perfect for me! This time I just put a bunch of pictures/quotes that will motivate me for this year. Last year, I had a lot of pictures of my husband/family and random things, but this way is better.

Here’s my vision board – I won’t go through each one, but I’ll explain some of them.

Let’s start from the top. A lot of those are about calmness and mindfulness which is something I’d love work on a lot this year. The picture of the woman is about me wanting nicer skin and getting better with my makeup skills. And of course I added something about my husband because he is #1 🙂 As you can see there are a couple things on here about him! 

In the second row, I have a picture of the Kindle which explains me wanting to read more this year. I can happily say that I have read SO much since I have gotten it! Family of course is important so I had to add something about that in here! We are planning to go to NYC this summer, so I added a picture of Central Park in there. And the last one I will mention in this row is the quote, “No one is born a great cook, one learns by doing.” I often get discouraged when I attempt to make some food that I’ve never made before or sometimes even food I’ve made multiple times and it doesn’t turn out the way I thought it would. This is a great quote because it’s true, I will get better with time! 

The third row is just all quotes, so I’ll pick 2-3 that stand out right now. I really want to get rid of any clutter and just make our living space very simple. The picture with Pooh says, “sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.” This is referring to my niece and nephew 🙂 And the last one I will mention in this row is the very first quote, life really is precious.

In the fourth row, I have the state of California map because it is one of the best states in my opinion and this map shows a lot of cool places to visit in CA! The woman in the bikini is my fitness goal and it’s very realistic for my body type since I don’t want abs or anything muscular. I feel like I could achieve this in 2019. I used to find really fit people with abs and make them my motivation, but it was too unrealistic and would take YEARS to happen. The picture of the palm trees and beach is a very special place in my heart 🙂 ❤ And the last one is about working out, eating well, and being patient. I’m not patient enough and this is a good reminder to be!

And for the last two sections, I’ll just talk about 4-5 of them. I added a couple things about traveling because that’s what I’m most looking forward this year and there is a picture in Disney Land because we are planning to go there! The pictures are because I want to take lots and lots of pictures going forward, that is the best way to remember good memories. I NEED to drink more water daily, it’s a huge struggle for me, but I am going to make it a habit. The picture of the hair is because I want long, healthy hair. And the last one I will mention is the plant, I want more plants in my house because plants give off good energy and fresh air.

There you have it, my 2019 vision board! I tried to be as realistic as possible and I think I can for sure accomplish most, if not all of these goals on my board.

Did you make a vision board for 2019? What are your top three things on there? 🙂

Thursday May 17, 2018 🌿

Hello!!!! ❤ 

I am finally back! SO MUCH has happened since I last blogged on May 1st.. can’t believe it’s been 17 days since I last blogged. Life has been so busy, it’s like ever since May hit, everything went crazy. So some highlights of May:

  • I passed that hard class I was worried about 
  • I graduated college
  • I got married
  • I moved into my new home 

So yeah it’s been a crazy 17 days! Let’s start from the beginning. So, Mirhad went to Boston to visit Irhad on May 6th for about 5 days. I missed him a lot, but I had so much to do to keep me busy. I spent a lot of that time getting the house ready. I think he deff missed me more tho lol, it was so weird seeing him when I picked him up @ the airport because I literally didn’t see his face for 5 days. My last exam was super hard, it was so difficult to study for because my brain was already done with school as soon as I finished my micro exam the week before lol. It was a tough one, but Adisa and I made it!! Anyways, right when he came back our bed got delivered so the people from Weekend’s Only put it together (thank you bc it was so complicated). After that, we went to go pick out a mattress which was able for pick up the next day. That Saturday (the 12th) was my graduation. Here’s some pics from that day!

It was sweet of everyone to come out and support me ❤ I felt so loved! After graduation, I spent the next 3 days moving my stuff into the house.. which took FOREVER. Moving out is harder than it seems. I didn’t realize I had so much stuff packed into my room, well not that much stuff it’s just that I have a lot of clothes and things like that so I had to go back and forth. Next time, I’m deff going to buy more storage bins so I don’t have to make multiple trips. 

Yesterday (the BEST day of them all) was when we got officially married at the courthouse!!!! As of yesterday at 1 pm, I am a married woman. It’s so crazy! I mean nothing really changed besides the fact that I get to live with my best friend, I feel the same, we act the same, and I’m just excited for all of the fun things we can do in the future! I also have some pictures of yesterday.

It was a very long, but rewarding day. Mirhad went straight to sleep after we came back and I went back to my moms so I can pack some more stuff that I left. We fasted yesterday because it was the first day of Ramadan, so I made food later that night for Iftar, it was yummy! 🙂 

Need to update on some house pictures and some decorations I have up, but first I need to organize everything because there is boxes everywhere that we haven’t unpacked yet. So yeah, I’m loving the new house. It’s great and it’s feeling very cozy. I’m grateful for everyone in my life who has helped me and who has been there for me on this crazy ride! 

All of my countdowns have passed and the only one that’s left is our trip to Colorado!! 7 more days woohoo!!! Mountains, here I come!!!! ❤ ❤ I cannot wait, seriously I am so ready to get a change of scenario and to relax a little bit before I start working which is also coming up in the beginning of June. I cannot wait to visit all of these places, I was also thinking about making a trip out to Utah maybe visit one of their national parks. 

That’s it for now.. bye! 🙂
