Life in Pictures (and captions)

Studying motivation! Which epically failed since i started sending emails instead of reading....

Weekend omelete with onions, tomatoes, dhanya (coriander), and tons of spices! This type of peaceful, yummy breakfast and some Pakistani drama mornings are things I'd probably miss in college a bit :)

Kind of a big thing right now-- applying for colleges! Getting constant email and postcards (and sometimes really fancy booklets) and I really need to apply for scholarships this next week! This was my first acceptance too :) (Well, I only applied two places, but it's still exciting to get accepted to a school, even if the whole world is getting accepted there :p)
In the school parking lot with a beeeautiful sky :) Little things 

Studying Econ with my great-great relatives (not really :p) on KhanAcademy and eating my current favorite snack-- Cocoa Puffs!

I've done 2 mehendi/henna fundraisers in the past through months. These type of designs (or love within the infinity sign) are always SUPER popular. Maybe I should do a post in the future with all the random designs we had. (oh yeah, we were totally doodling on napkins :p haha)

Eid ul-Fitr mehendi! I have started a new "tradition" of doing my henna like the DAY of Eid instead of the day before...haha we'll see where college leaves mehendi doing

Ramadan calendar! We always get mailed these iftaari calendars from the local mosque/masjid, and I always highlight each day when it's over (so it's easier to read). The past few years I've started making a color pattern and making it all pretty!

New school year binders! (yeah these pictures are in no particular order) I'm all about color-coordinating. But that teal and green get confusing sometimes...
At my list high school Homecoming game, I may or may not have spent $11 on Dippin' Dots :p haha but these things are sooo good! :) We won the game and it was a fun time with friends. One of the many "lasts" of this year 


Baby Nephews! :)

It's been a while since last post! Last year of High School is very busy and I also acquired (haha, I can't think of another verb for this) two nephews in the past 2ish weeks!! 
Nephew #2 basinet label, who was born on Eid ul Adha! :) 

My sister and sister-in-law both had boys 11 days apart. Since I'm on fall break this past week and upcoming week, it's been fun to spend time with my sister's son! :) (I think he likes me. We'll pretend 2 week olds can express affection to their aunts)

I finally bought a few things for my nephews! We were at Target today and I liked a few onesies. I should probably get my older nephew Mr. Potato Head like I've been wanting to to keep it even :p (my sister think that's the worst present on Earth, I'm positive it's America's classic toy for a reason...)

My sis-in-law's son is a little brother to my 2 year old nephew! :)

My favorite! I got one of these for both of them

For sister's son :)

The fun thing is (not that I was intending to be a super cheap aunt or anything :p) while I was looking around a Target employee told me about Target's Cartwheel app that I downloaded right then and there (yay wifi!) and found sales on these clothes! The app is pretty nice...I don't shop at Target THAT often, but it seems like you can almost always find a coupon for the things you're shopping for (especially with all the baby stuff my sister will be getting now).

I have lots of pictures of me nephews, not their things as much. But I think I'll do a picture review post after this of some random things :)
