Happy Tuesday! :)

Good morning!!!!

Woke up at 7 this morning to do something for work (have to put something together every other Tuesday for a meeting the following day) so I’ve been up for about an hour and 30 min. Finished my thing for work about 15 mins ago and made myself a cup of coffee. I’m trying to cut down on sugar from like creamers and stuff like that, so this time I only used real brown sugar, milk, and whipping cream. It actually doesn’t taste bad at all!

So the plan is to work out today, probably around 9ish. Was going to work out yesterday, but I came home and fell asleep lol. But it’s okay, I’ll do it eventually hahaha. Today is a bit colder outside, so I’ll have to bundle up to go out there.ย 

What else?? I GOT MY SD CARD WITH ALL MY PICS AND FOOTAGE!!!!! WHICH MEANS I’LL 100% BE FINISHING THE BLOG POST TODAY AND STARTING ON MY VIDEO TO UPLOAD TO YOUTUBE!! WOOHOO!!!! I’ve been waiting for it and I made Mirhad go get it last night after class at 10ย ๐Ÿ˜‚ย so I’l be doing that as soon as I’m done with this post.ย 

This weekend was super busy, we had a surprise baby shower for my sister in laws sister in law hahaha. She was totally surprised and it was so sweet. Can’t wait to meet that little munchkin! After the baby shower, we went to my bff’s parents house and chilled there for a bit. Her mom made delicious food (as always) and we just stayed until like 9ish when Sanela left for the Djani concert. Overall, it was a fun but busy day. Hoping next weekend I can take more time to relax than anything.

This week will probably fly by, so I’ve made a quick to do list and wrote it in my journal. Hope I can cross off A LOT so I don’t have to move it to next week lol. Have been eating healthy and already feel better. I just want my skin to improve, it’s such shit right now. I always forget to do face masks, but it’s my goal to do one weekly. Also need to put a mask on my hair too, as it feels pretty dry sometimes.ย 

So this is a quick post as I’m eager to start doing the other things, talk to you soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

Tuesday morning + updates!

Hi there!

It’s almost noon and I am having my first cup of coffee. Work started at 7:45am this morning (WFH) and I didn’t need coffee that early for energy, I’m surprised! I mean I don’t even need it right now for energy, I just love coffee lol.

Yesterday, we went to the gym at 6am and so we woke up at 5:45am which was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do in a while. Waking up at 6 for work is hard enough, but that 15 mins early than usual was horrible lol. BUT I do have to say that I did feel better throughout the day and I wasn’t really tired. It’s much easier to go to the gym earlier when I am WFH, but on the days I have to go into the office it’s tricky because I like to go in at 7:30 so like when would I even make time to get ready + eat + go to the gym?! It would be crammed, so I think on those days we’ll just work out after work/school.ย 

We have been trying to get into the routine of working out daily, for multiple reasons of course, but mainly to get our heart pumping and blood running through our veins! Hopefully we can keep it going, it’s really hard to get into a routine, but anyone can do it!ย 

I made a to-do list for today and I am trying to keep it small otherwise I probably won’t get everything done. The good thing is that I can just move it to tomorrow and it’ll get done ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

Our trip is pretty much done planning with the flights/cars/where we’re staying parts. The only thing left to do for me is to write it out in my notebook so it’s all laid out in front of me and I know what’s going on. Today I am going to go look at carry on suitcases for us – we literally only own one suitcase and my mom borrowed it for her trip to Bosnia. So we need 2 since this trip is 5 days long and I just want to bring my own stuff. We usually can fit both of our stuff together, but oh well.. what if we go to DSW in Dallas (the best) and buy some more shoes (LOL Mirhad) like where are we going to fit them if we don’t have two suitcases?!ย ๐Ÿ˜œ

I also need to return my diffuser because it’s way too big. I liked the old one I had, but I gave it to my sister – she still needs to buy essential oils for it since I took mine with me. This one is good because of the size, but it’s too much work flipping it upside down to remove the water and add the essential oils. Before I just opened the top and added it – simple. So I am going to look for another one today too.ย 

Hmm, what else?? On Sunday, we had the BEST weather so far. I got to open up all of the windows and the breeze was so nice. It’s pretty much going to be in the 70’s for the next 2 weeks, except maybe like 2 days where it’s mid 80’s. But I’m not complaining, this weather is great! Trying to convince Mirhad for us to exercise outside today by playing soccer or something just so we can enjoy the weather (if you’re reading this Mirhad, plz let’s go). ๐Ÿ˜€

See ya! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Tuesday!!!

Good morning/afternoon!

Happy Tuesday, one more day until Wednesday which means we’re one step closer to Friday & the weekend!!! Nothing particularly going on, just want to relax with my hubby ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

Went to work this morning until lunch time and then I decided to come home, just because I wanted to work from home. Also, my stomach is bothering me for some reason so it’s better that I am at home right now lol. So for the rest of the day I’ll work from here. Not sure what we’re going to do after work, but I think we should go grocery shopping because we haven’t in a while. Yesterday I just went to Aldi to grab some chicken and ground beef, so we still need some more items.ย 

I also got some stuff from the dollar store so I can make DIY fall stuff, I think I might do a tutorial on here or something. I am going to make a wreath to hang on the front door and maybe I’ll put something on the backdoor too. I can’t believe they already had their fall stuff out. I got so excited when I saw everything on Pinterest so I just went to see if they had it and I’m glad I did because the cashier said everything goes fast. I also got the cutest little glass pumpkins in white and gold.ย 

-Update: I just finished the wreath and will be writing a post about it very soon!!! It was super easy!

Well, I gotta go now. See ya soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Tuesday April 24, 2018 ๐ŸŒฟ

Good morning!

Happy Tuesday!! It was a busy weekend and pretty much for the next month it’ll be very busy. So I had my bridal shower and I had SO MUCH FUN!! I’m so glad I was able to spend it with my friends and family. We took a lot of photos and had so much fun with the photo booth and the props. In the end, we took a group photo of the people who didn’t leave after they ate and it’s adorable.. we all held up random funny props. My sister in law has them on her camera so I’m just waiting for her to send them to me. I do have lots of pictures my friends took though, so I am going to upload those too ๐Ÿ™‚

After the bridal shower, Mirhad and I, my parents, my sister, Irfan, Mirhad’s parents and sister, my niece and nephew, and Sanela all went to our new house and opened up presents. It was so much more fun opening them at home with family because I didn’t have to awkwardly take pictures with the guests holding up the presents. I liked it this way so much better. Time also passed by so fast during the shower that we wouldn’t even have had time to do it. We ended up playing 3 games – musical chairs, the toilet paper wedding dress, and this game where you have 15 balloons and each balloon has a date in it and if you got the date we started dating you won a prize. It was funny to see everyone popping the balloons on the floor hahaha. So whoever won got a nice present ๐Ÿ™‚ I had a lot of fun and we ended up having 3 cars full of presents, it was crazy! So I will be making a separate post about my shower and then when I get the professional pics I’ll make another one ๐Ÿ™‚

Yesterday we got the kitchen for the house!!! My parents are putting it together today and a lot of it was done yesterday as well. Soon we have to go pick out a granite top and that’s pretty much it. Saturday our furniture comes and it is soooooo cute!! It’s going to look so good in the living room ๐Ÿ˜€ This is what we picked out:

IMG_0886-2IMG_0887-2IMG_0888-2

So it is that exact color and we got the glass table too! I think it’s going to look good with the carpet I got a while back. Can’t wait to see it in the living room officially. We got this set from Weekends Only! We still have to go shopping for a dining room table set and a bedroom set as well. We are going to go look at office desks so we can get the office going.

We also booked a trip to Colorado in May so I am so excited, I cannot wait to see the beautiful mountains โค It’ll be nice to get a fresh breathe of that mountain air after this ridiculous semester. We are going with Mirhad, my brother, Anel, and Sanela. 2 other people might join, but if they don’t we’re still going. Anel and my brother have never went so I can’t wait to show them everything. I was thinking about inviting my parents and Sanela’s parents to go if the other 2 can’t make it because it would be so much fun. I start work sometime in June I still have to figure out what date exactly. About to make those travel posts again heyyyyyy! For now, I am counting down the days!!!

My graduation party is in 2 weekends, so I’m excited to just chill with everyone again. This one won’t be as stressful, I just have to clean up the backyard hahah. It’s also going to be for my dads and sisters birthday (early) so it’ll be 3 celebrations in one. So at least I can say what’s up to everyone, eat, and then go to my living room and hangout with my friends!

But yeah, I have class in an hour and 30 mins so I’m going to go grab a snack and start making my bridal shower post!

See ya!! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Tuesday April 17, 2018 ๐ŸŒฟ

Good morning!

Happy Tuesday, it’s a much better day weather wise than this weekend and yesterday and it makes all the difference in everyones moods! I have lots to blog about which I am going to do in the next 2 1/2 hours before my class so be prepared for A LOT! As of right now, I am drinking coffee in my room and just having a good time. I cut up some bananas and oranges – these oranges I bought are like pink on the inside and no I didn’t accidentally buy grapefruit, but they’re actually pretty sweet!

So, yesterday I got everything done that needed to be done for my bridal shower, I’m going to post some pictures of what we did. It was a very long, tiring day honestly. That took FOREVER especially because we ran into some dilemmas, but in the end everything turned out so cute! So here are some pictures:

IMG_0830-1IMG_0831-1IMG_0829-1

So those little boxes have rose petals inside and then some little candies. We had to put the boxes together, fill them up, then close them back up and tie those little bows around the top. I think they look so adorable! Then we did these ribbons on the flower vases, well Sejla did because she made the best ribbons hahahah and real flowers will go in each of them (I think there’s like 7 or 8) and we will put them on each table. What I forgot to take a picture of was the props Sanela and I had to glue on a stick. There were a bunch! Medina was our little helper throughout this whole day, she gave us which prop to glueย ๐Ÿ˜‚ย And omg I totally forgot to take a picture of the party favors… but I will add more pictures the actual day of my shower! They are little nail-polishes and they are soooo adorable because they look like they have veils on them. Anyways, that seems like it wouldn’t take a long time, but it took a couple hours. We also thought of some games, I think we’re going to do like 3-4 of them to take up the time. But yes, that’s all done with finally. Everything else is just decorating on Sunday. I also got my dress and shoes so I am set to go!!

Mirhad started packing up his stuff from his room, basically everything besides his clothes and I also need to start doing that soon. I think I’m going to need a couple storage containers to pack my stuff up because I have a bunch of small things and I think it would be best to do just 2-3 big containers. But OMG…. 29 more days till I move out and get married!!! WOOHOO!!! I can’t believe how fast time flew by… well not really but now that it’s getting closer and closer I feel so anxious. I know our parents will be sad, but I know we will see them a lot so it will be like we never left (kind of). Anywayssssss, I am so excited to have my own place and I can’t wait to start decorating. We will be looking at furniture a lot for the next 29 days so we can furnish this place!

I also need to get in touch with my future workplace so we can finalize stuff, they said around this time or end of April would be when we start doing the process. Oh, also…. Adisa will be working with me!!!!!! She got an offer and we are sooooo excited!!! I’m so happy for her and I think she really deserves this after a tough semester of searching for jobs and going to tons of interviews! I can’t wait to work with her, I think we will be in the same building so it will be fun! We can carpool, eat lunch together, go on breaks together, etc., I can’t wait ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Just came back from driving Mirhad to school and now I am about to start getting ready for class. I need to make another to-do list today so I make sure I don’t forget to do the stuff I need to do. It just little things and some aren’t even pertaining to the shower, it’s just stuff I need to do for myself.

Today when Mirhad gets out of class, we’re going to go to Weekends Only to look at furniture. Hopefully we find something we like, it’s so hard for us to like the same couch apparently lol. —— Weekends Only is CLOSED bc it’s a weekends only store… dumb moment for me hahahaha. So instead we will go buy storage bins so I can start packing!

Meant to upload this post earlier today, but I went to school and didn’t bring my computer, so now I am at home finishing this before I leave to go pick up Mirhad. My mom went to SAMS the other day and I feel like she didn’t get anything goodย ๐Ÿ˜ย so I think at Walmart I’ll pick up some bagel thins and maybe one orange because Walmart’s is theย BEST. So I didn’t get what I was hoping I’d get on the test, but I did really good on my homework so my grade basically stayed the same.. YAY! I also think if I do well on the quizzes and rest of the homework that I can pass with an okay grade which is just enough for me ๐Ÿ™‚ That means I don’t have to stress too much about it. I have a micro test coming up and I don’t even know what I have in the class because he hasn’t posted any grades this semester at all.. eh, I think I’ll be okay with this one too.

I think we’re all going to go on a trip like after graduation and school ends in May probably for a week or so, it’ll most likely just be me, Mirhad, Ermin, Anel, and Sanela. We might go somewhere in the mountains which GETS ME SO EXCITED!!!!! It’s been way too long since I have hiked at the mountains and inhaled that fresh crisp air โค so I will probably get going on planning that too ๐Ÿ˜€ I don’t even care if it’s Colorado again… you know that’s my favorite place!! But just anywhere outside, maybe even Yosemite or Grand Canyon? Who knows?! But that means travel posts, woohoo!!

But yeah, that is pretty much everything I’ve needed to update on. Now that I am a little less stressed out, I can focus way more on blogging. See ya! ๐Ÿ™‚

Tuesday April 10, 2018 ๐ŸŒฟ

Good morning!

Happy Tuesday ๐Ÿ™‚ I am currently up drinking coffee, blogging, organizing my binder, and writing my final copy for my homework that’s due today. I really can’t wait to be done with this test on Thursday so I can do some other stuff not related to school that needs to be done… which is A LOT of stuff. I still didn’t get my dress for my shower and it’s less than 2 weeks away, I’m freaking out over this test so my stress is out the roof. I just honestly can’t wait for it to be May. At least by then I’ll have only one class (hopefully) to focus on and I won’t have to worry about anything related to my shower because that will be done with, too. I just feel soooooo tired, even though I get enough sleep. Maybe because my brain literally doesn’t sleep at night because of all of this stuff I need to think about.

Just finished writing my final copy for my homework and Adisa and I found #3 so we are done yay! About to go drive Mirhad to school and then come back and get ready for class. It’s not super cold outside today so I don’t have to bundle up (finally) and tomorrow and Thursday will be 70 and 76 degrees omg, but I bet next week it’ll get super cold again knowing STL’s weather ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

I’ve been tracking what I have been eating since yesterday so I think I might keep track of it on here too and that way I can remember to do it as well. I don’t even have a goal weight at this point, I just want to look and feel healthy.

Just got back from driving Mirhad – well actually I got back like 30 minutes ago, but now I am getting ready for class. Today will probably be a quick class because she is just going to go over the stuff we turn in today and then I can just study right when I get home until I have to go pick up Mirhad. I think we are going to the gym after so I’m excited for that!

But yeah, that’s it for now.. will probably do a post of my food log for today!

Bye ๐Ÿ™‚

Tuesday April 3, 2018

Hiiiiiiii!

Happy Tuesday! It’s April, can’t believe how fast this year is going by, but that means one more month until school is over. Let me calculate how many weeks exactly – okay so 5-6 weeks because I know one of my classes ends in 4 weeks and the other our last exam is like the week of graduation. So I’m just going to say 5 weeks to make myself feel betterย ๐Ÿ˜‚

Meant to blog yesterday about my day, but time flew by so fast I was in bed before I knew it. I woke up this morning around 9 and cleaned the kitchen.. seriously my siblings don’t know how to clean anything SMH so I spent like 30 minutes cleaning the kitchen. Apparently Mirhad came over last night and played FIFA with my brother all night and slept over.. I didn’t even know so it was funny to wake up to him in my dining room doing his homework hahaha. I drove him to school after I cleaned and then I came back and watched an episode ofย This is Us and I seriously miss watching that show but I feel like I have so much to do in this month that I don’t know where my mind is so when I’m able to sit down and watch it or any show I like for that matter it makes my mood better.ย 

So I downloaded this app calledย Like to Know it and you can take screenshots of stuff you find on Pinterest or anywhere else and it’ll tell you where you can buy the clothes or whatever you screenshot. You can also follow a lot of bloggers who use that site and I found some people I like to follow so I know where to buy clothes from in the future. My goal is to change my style for when I start working because at that point I’ll be starting a new job and it’s important to look my best going into a professional setting! So on that app I found these wedges that I have been looking for in stores for like maybe 3 months now no joke and the link took me to Target’s website and guess what?! I found them at Target for $35!!! Everywhere else I’ve seen them they’re like $60+. Plus, I also had a 20% shoes coupon through the Cartwheel Target app and it brought my price down to $28, so it was deff a steal. I can wear those to graduation and even my bridal shower, they are so comfortable.ย 

I’m about to go work on the house a little bit and then possibly go to the gym. We’re supposed to switch out all of the ceiling fans and clean the floor again and then Mirhad’s dad has some electricity stuff to finish up. We will finish the basement by the end of this week and when my parents are back from their vacation, we will go buy a kitchen, YAY!!!!!!!!! I’m very excited about that part. After the kitchen is done, it will be time to furnish our home ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m seriously going to have so much fun doing that. And then as soon as we are done furnishing… we are moving in! So like one more month and I get to live with the love of my life, yasssss! I’m so excited โคย 

Last night I wrote out the ultimate to do list and I have sooooooo much to do ๐Ÿ˜ฆ May hurry up plz. At least when it’s May, most of my worries will be gone, like the anxiety from my bridal shower and all of that planning. All I will be worried about is graduation (I know I will be super nervous about that) but it’s all going to pass by so quick and then I’ll be married before you know it!!!

So yeah, that’s all, bye! ๐Ÿ™‚ย
