Hello there! ✨

Good morning!!!

LONG TIME NO TALK! Seriously… it’s been probably almost a month since the last time I blogged?? Not sure, but I’ll check back on my last post. But seriously.. it has been a while and I even feel so weird writing again. I haven’t been in the greatest mood to blog, I feel like I lost my mojo (is that what it’s called? lol) like I have no motivation to blog every single day, but TBH, I do miss it. 

Currently, I am working from home, enjoying my second cup of coffee today. About to have a meeting at 2 so that will keep me occupied until 3 and then I might go to another 30 minute meeting and that’s it for my work day since I started working this morning at 7:30! Work is fun, I am lucky my best friend works at the same place I do so getting lunch with her everyday is lots of fun! ❤ 

We gave Thor away to a very nice lady who lives 2.5 hours away from us because we decided that we weren’t ready for a puppy yet, but we are deff going to adopt one in the future, let’s say 1-2 years? We just got married and we barely were seeing each other and hanging out throughout the day. I’d come home from work and just play and take care of Thor up until I was ready for bed and it would repeat like that everyday. He wasn’t a bad puppy, he was actually very smart and playful. Next time, we deff won’t get a puppy until we are 100% ready. I do miss him a lot, but I know this was the right decision. The very nice lady who has him now has been searching for a puppy for a long time, her golden retriever died 3 years ago and she has been searching for the perfect dog. It was like fate. I am glad that he is in great care by her, she even has family here so she will come visit with him and also said if we’re ever in the neighborhood we’re more than welcome to visit! So yes, it sucks that he isn’t ours anymore, but I know he’s having the time of his life 🙂 ❤ She sends me pictures all of the time so I get to watch him grow as well! Love and miss you forever Thori ❤ ❤ 

But since then we have just been getting our house in order. While we had Thor, we discovered a HUGE brown recluse spider. If you don’t know what that is, it is one of the most poisonous spiders in the Midwest. After that huge one came crawling from the corner towards where we were sitting with Thori in our office, Mirhad discovered another one in the bathroom. So needless to say, we freaked out.  He has spent the last few weeks exterminating them pretty much and we just find dead ones. The basement is the last place we need to take care of, but that will take lots of time.

Besides that, we have been finishing up the little things we have wanted to around the house and it feels good! We are using this white board we use to use to study with and put it in out kitchen/hallway area and that’s where we write our daily to-do list. Feels great when you can cross it all off at the end of the day. So we have been using that to keep track of everything around the house and I have got to say that it works so well! 

That’s it for now, will most likely post again today about future trips this summer!

See ya! 🙂

Saturday 🌸

Good morning!

Last time I blogged, we were getting Thor in just 5 days. Well, he’s here now!!! We got him Monday so it’s been 6 days and to be honest, it’s been a busy 6 days. I also started work on Monday so on top of Thor coming home, I’ve been SO TIRED. Every time my alarm goes off at 6 AM for work, he’s up wanting to go outside to use the bathroom. He came home to us partially potty trained, so we just had to show him where to go to the bathroom and he’s had a few accidents, but he’s still learning. Now when he wants to go to the bathroom, he usually goes to the door or whines for a bit. But he really does have a routine of going to the bathroom before going to bed and at 6 AM, it’s adorable.. he’s such a smart puppy. 

I could probably write a book about all of the cute little things he does, but I’ll just write a few right now. He slept in our bed for 2 nights because we just wanted some sleep because he whined all night. Recently, we found a brown recluse in the house, so Mirhad has been clearing out the house and doing all kinds stuff to get rid of them and have them stay out. So we let him sleep on our bed and it was the cutest thing, he turns to a new position like every 20 or so minutes and at one point he ended up by my feet and right in between our pillows trying to take over them. So cute! Last night, we got him to sleep in his bed surrounded by the crate and I don’t know how this happened, but we woke and he was above Mirhad’s head sleeping on his pillow. We laughed so hard and put him back in his bed.. he’s such a little sneakster. He seriously melts my heart. 

First week of work was good, Adisa and I had lunch together everyday, we just switch which building! I didn’t get any real work this week, but I was able to get training, cleaning/decorating my cube, and other first week check-list stuff done. I’m very excited to start working on the real stuff, my co-worker who was my mentor last summer is out of the country for 3 weeks so when she’s back she’s handing over some roles to me, YAY!

Glad it’s the weekend though, it’s been a tiring week. I wanted to sleep in this morning, but Thor did not want to sleep so he whined for a while. He did knock out for about 2 hours, but then woke up around 8 wanting to go pee and eat. Did all of that and he played with some of his toys and now he’s napping. I found out that puppies at around 8 weeks nap between 18-22 hours a day.. crazy because he’s ALWAYS napping unless people are over to see him. But seriously, it’s only been 6 days and Mirhad and I are in love with him, he’s such a perfect fit with our little family 🙂 

Today Mirhad will be working on the house, but I think we might go grocery shopping first and later I might go buy some stuff for my cubicle to decorate it. I already put pictures up and printed some more I have to pick up today. It’s mostly pictures of Thor, here are some btw.. 🙂

Tuesday 🌿

Good morning!!

I really need to get back into the habit of blogging every morning, I always have the intention, but then a million other things pop up that I have to do so I never get around to actually writing. So I finally have some time right now and I will make it a habit to blog again once a day like I use to! 

So this morning I woke up, kind of feeling a little sick.. for some reason my stomach was bothering me and my head hurt, but I feel much better after eating. I ate a bowl of cheerios this morning, half of an avocado, and half of an orange. BTW my favorite snack at the moment is half of an avocado (bc lots of calories in a whole one) and pink himalayan salt drizzled on top… SO DELICIOUS. Another new favorite snack is garlic hummus and pita chips, seriously these two things is what I have been missing in my life 😋😋😋 the only thing is that when I start eating the chips with hummus, I CANNOT stop lol, it’s so difficult bc its so good! 

So on Friday it’s Bajram which means that Ramadan is officially over and this is one of the best holidays of the year. We get to spend time with family, give gifts, and enjoy each others’ company. Before Friday, I have to clean the whole house (it’s just a tradition or rule I guess) and we have already pretty much bought everyone presents, today we are just going to finish up the rest. 

Yesterday we were at Marshall’s and I think I found a good vanity mirror for my makeup table so I think I might go back and get it since it was only $20 and I think it would look good in the room. I also just found these vanity light bulbs on Amazon for $20 that I can stick on there to give it amazing lighting so I think I might buy those too. All that’s left is to buy a chair and I did find one on Amazon, but it’s $60 so I think I might put that off until I get my first paycheck and have some more money. 

Mirhad has been working, this is his second week so he’s done pretty much by 5 pm so today after he’s done, we’re going to go finish buying the presents and we have to go buy this board game because Adisa is coming over tonight so we can chill! It’ll be fun, I haven’t seen her in so long and I’ve missed her! I need to remind myself to give her the grad gift I have forgotten to give her a million times!!!! 

Thor is probably most likely going to be home on Monday (crossing my fingers) I’m still waiting for the lady to respond about us coming before the 23rd, but I don’t think it would be a problem.

Anyways, I have to go visit my mom real quick and then head to Marshall’s to buy that mirror while it’s still there!!! See ya! 🙂 

Thursday 🌿

Good morning!

Long time, no blog! Lots of exciting stuff has happened since the last time I blogged.. okay basically one exciting thing 😂😂 are you ready for this..?!?!?!?!!?!

THERE WILL BE A NEW ADDITION TO OUR FAMILY….. BABY THOR!!!!! 

DSC_1013.jpg

Thor will be here June 23rd and we are SO EXCITED! ❤ He is a mini golden doodle and he will grow up to 25-35 pounds which is a perfect size for us. Mirhad and I talked about starting our search for a puppy to add into our family when we come back from Colorado so literally the second day back I saw a post on Facebook from one of the golden doodle pages I follow. This specific post said, “the mini golden doodles are finally here and are cuter than ever!” So right away I sent them a message saying I was interested and the rest is history. We already put a deposit down on him and now we’re waiting until the 18th when they can finally leave their homes to go home with the new families. If I don’t start work by the 18th, we will go pick him up that day instead of that weekend. It sucks that it’s 4 hours away, but it’s going to be fun coming back home with him.

We have started buying him things such as a food and water bowl, a little placemat that goes under the bowls, a bed, and a leash. We still need to buy him some other things, but we have like 2 weeks! Going to start puppy proofing the house soon, too. We wanted to make him a house type thing in the office so he can chill there, but we want him to sleep in our room 🙂

But yeah that’s our announcement!! 😀 😀 😀 until I start working, I’ll just do some small errands I’ve been meaning to do.

I also will be moving to a new website, when I figure out what to call it I will be announcing it on here. I don’t think I’ll be using wordpress, I think I will buy a domain and Mirhad will build it for me! It’ll be exactly how I want it so I’m excited!!

So that’s it for now, bye! 🙂
