Heart Tree

Hello! Assalam Walaikum! Hola!

Yesterday I picked up my phone fully knowing it was my dad and said, "Hello?". My sister's like, "What?!" :D It's like involuntary now, pick up the phone and say Hello?! hehe are probably wondering what's heart tree...or you may not. But I'm going to tell you anyways because when I showed this picture to my sister she was not interested, at all. :( Maybe random people who possibly read my blog are more interested? :P

Now, all of you may not be as randomly amused by everything in this world as I am, but do you see what I saw when I was closing my blinds the other day? IT'S A HEART! FORMED BY LEAVES.

You don't see it?


Here, I'll point it out for you.

Now I know what you're thinking....that in the dark the shadow falls and it makes things look like other things. But, it looks like a heart in the daytime too!!! :D

Yes, I know, it's not a PERFECT heart. I mean, there are other branches and leaves in the way. But I think it has a pretty prominent outline.

:D As long as there are leaves on that tree, I am pretty amused by this every morning & evening when I open and close my blinds/curtains.

In other news and things I am amused by, guess what I found at Meijer yesterday!?!

It's a FLOWER PEN!! No, I didn't buy it :( it was $2.99 for a pen, and as much as I loved it I didn't feel like wasting money on it. :D

Not only was there a pen, but there was other flowery things too!

This is a "vase" with the flower on one side and a cleaning brush on the other :)
A kitchen sink (or bathroom?) thing, with a place to put soap, a cleaner thing, and a flower brush!

When I have my own little kitchen INSHALLAH, I think I will get something like this. :D

Yes, I get amused by everything. It was hot outside today and when I stepped inside my home I was like, "AIR CONDITIONERRRRR!!!!". :D hehe...

That's enough of amusement today...well enough blogging amusement :P. 7 Days till Ramadan!!! 24ish until school start :( and a bunch of homework still left to do....I think I'll just stare outside at the heart tree :D

Brownies, Crackle, Ramadan, and...homework? :(

A couple things to mention :)

I ate all of mine before taking a pic :P This pic is from here
1) I have been eating this amazingly amazing brownie! It is from Panera Bread! They have this deal where on top of any lunch/dinner meal, you can get one for $0.99. Today I got it FREE (yipee! lol true desi style :D) because I joined MyPanera and they give you free stuff periodically. This brownie is literally like the best brownie I've ever had! Hehe...I love Panera Bread :D

*this isn't my picture, it is from here
2) Today while at Ulta, I tried some random nail-polishes, including China Glaze crackle. I have Opi shatter in black, but after trying China Glaze, I would highly suggest buying it over Opi. The brush is easier to spread (unlike Opi, whose brush/thickness makes it really hard to spread evenly) and it cracks very nicely. The price difference isn't much between Opi and China Glaze, but quality wise I think China Glaze is amazing.(I did Ulta yellow nailpolish with China Glaze black mesh crackle, and it looks very similar to the picture at right)

3) RAMADAN IS COMING UP!!! :) I'm trying to finish work before Ramadan, but it probably won't be possible because I have sooooo much summer homework! It's horrible :( yah. But I do fun things in put on mehendi...and watch tv. oooh have you guys seen Jago Pakistan Jago on Hum Tv? It's hosted by Fahad Mutafa (and Kiran Khan, but she's currently on vacation). Loving that morning show! But yesterday they showed an older episode because Karachi's halaat (environment? saftey?) isn't too good these day :( Just hope everyone stays safe...I've also been downloading new songs. Bol and Patiala House have some nice ones :)

Lost the numbering by subject matter on #3, but that's okay :P hehe's interesting how my "writing" style has changed over the years. I was searching for a post about Panera Bread and came across some old posts...they were interesting.

Okay, that's it for now. Hope you all have an amazing rest of July!

25 Random Questions :)

I haven't done a tag post in a looong time, but I was watching amenakin's video on this tag and found the questions interesting. :) As she did, I tag anyone else wanting to do it! :D

1. Do you have any pets?
Currently, no :( Long ago we had 3 goldfish, but we weren't too good at taking care of them and they all passed away. Then, I tried to convince my dad to let me get a rabbit (a lot) but that didn't go too well. :D Now, I looove cats...maybe I'll get one some day? :P hehe

My Ipod home screen :)
 2. Name 3 things that are physically close to you.
<-My iPod (the thing I am ALWAYS with :P), chocolate (which I've had a lot of recently),'m taking this question as a materialistic thing but obviously- family, friends :) (another "nonliving" thing would be my laptop, which I have to use a lot for drivers ed and summer homework :D)

3. What's the weather like right now?
Very nice...I think. Yesterday evening it was PINK outside (it was so cool!) I think it's supposed to be really hot but I don't think it is (doesn't look like it). It's sorta grey-ish, nonsunny, but I'm sure it feels awesome :)

4. Do you drive? If so have you crashed?
As of right now, I've driven twice :) I got my permit in the mail just today! yipeeee!!! hehe...I'll be driving a lot more soon, because I need 50 hours before I can get my license next year. And I HOPE i don't crash :D

5. What time did you wake up this morning? standard time? Okay, I slept like REALLY late and I am in no mood to write when I got up... :D hehehe

6. When was the last time you showered?
Creepy question...last night...

7. What was the last movie you saw? and my sis were trying to find Kung Fu Panda (1) because she hadn't seen it, but we couldn't so I just downloaded HOP. It was a Christmasy-style Easter movie...not amazing not horrible :)

8. What does your last text message say?
"We are visiting people in Ohio" <-- friend telling me about her one week vacation :)

9. What's your ringtone?
I don't really have a phone, so no proper ringtone. But we got a several handset landline phone yesterday and the one in my room is currently on a very generic beep-beep tone because the rest of the tones seem like 2 year old cartoon songs :P

I rode one of these camels on the seaside in Karachi, Pak :)
10. Have you ever been to a different country?
Yep :) Pakistan!! And if you start counting airports...well then that's a long list :D (I've also been to outside the airport and around the city :)

11. Do you like sushi?
The sushi I had once had cooked fish, and that was pretty decent. Don't know about raw fish sushi :)

12. Where do you buy your groceries?
Depends...Walmart, Meijer, Aldi... :)

13. Have you ever taken medication to help you fall asleep faster?
Nope :)

14. How many siblings do you have?
3; 2 brothers and 1 sister, all older :)
My Laptop looks something like this :)

15. Do you have a desktop computer or a laptop?
Laptop! :) I like the 'movability' of the day time I'll sit next to my window and at night my desk. Or I'll take it downstairs if I want to watch TV or my sisters room...etc

16. How old will you be turning on your next birthday?
The same as this question :)

17. Do you wear contacts or glasses?
contacts! looking at old pictures, I realize glasses look horrible on me. So contacts it is :D

18. Do you color your hair?
nope...unlike most people, I don't care much for my hair, especially after wearing hijaab. Plus I like the color they are :)

Online drivers ed logo :D
19. Tell me something you are planning to do today.
Eat :D And finish 3 hrs for Drivers-Ed, like every day this week :)

20. When was the last time you cried?
Hm....a very long time ago? I seriously can't remember a distinct event where I cried recently. I am brought to tears that stay in my eye VERY easily, but actually "banh-banh" crying hasn't happened recently :D

Yummmy! :D
21. What is your perfect pizza topping?
PINEAPPLE! Here in US, you can basically have cheese, pineapple, and vegetable. So I love Pineapple. Chicken Tikka in Pakistan is pretty good too :)

22. Which do you prefer-hamburgers or cheeseburgers?

Haven't had either, same reason as above. But my mom said the "hamburger" in some Pakistan place was AMAZING so I told her I MUST have it when we go there next :)

23. Have you ever had an all-nighter?
Depends on what you call an all-nighter. I have stayed up VERY late studying/doing homework and had to wake up at 6/7am for school the next morning, but I've never actually stayed up the entire night and not gone to sleep until the next night. (Been up till 6/7 in Pakistan :D hehe) I'm sure I'll end up doing that in college though...

24. What is your eye color?
Brown. But I LOVE green eyes and color-changing eyes :)

25. Can you taste the difference between Pepsi and Coke?

Yes...very much. I think they have two distinct tastes, and I prefer Pepsi, though I don't like Pepsi very much either :P

That's it! :) Have a nice day! :D
