Tonight

Tonight we went out to meet with my girl, J and her family. We've become really good friends now, talking on msn each day and stuff. She's awesome, we totally get each other. Anyway we thought we'd introduce the Misters to each and let the kids play together. They've been asking to see them ever since last time. Our sons have a little bit of a blooming bromance going on. The The kids were stalking a cute little kitten, but she kept hiding in the bushes. J and co. were gonna take her home, but no luck with her coming out. I'll totally use her to get to her cat.

On the way home we stopped so Safiyah could spend her b-daymoney (She's 5 today!). She chose these:



After she bought them, I had enough stamps on my card at that shop to get a free 50LE so I picked these nice make up brushes. I asked if I could feel them and they are SO soft and the bristles stay put.



The engrish on the package is hilarious and completely nonsensical!


Hahahahhahahahahahah! But the brushes are really nice!

  1. hahah super hilarious. I can't believe you guys get stamps over there. The closest thing we have are 'rewards points', which of course you need at least 2k (2,000) of to get anything semi-legit.

  2. Perplxin Texan, We used to have this sandwich place in NJ that you'd get a free sub after buying 12, and a t shirt shop, but who buys 12 T's from the same place in any short amount of time. This place, it comes to about 400 LE spent to get the 50LE but my kids spent a lot of money there after eid and I get people's gifts from there just to get the stamp!

  5. Salaam Mona,

    first of all,I've to say that you really brought a smile on my face with the spider story :D!You know,I've heard somewhere that a spider in a house means that soon there would come some money in.So...you knever know :)!
    Your little Safiyah is so super sweet and cute in that picture on the first day of school,but I'm sorry you had such stress on that day.
    You're lucky to have a new friend.It's so exciting to get to know somebody new.Allah brought her to you :)!
    These stamps,or however one calls them are actually very good if you know how to use this system.In Italy you have such things almost in every shop and I've done many times very good deals by using them.A girl's got to know how to make the best of her money ;D!
