Check out that view


So, looks like we found a place. I did some work on my husband. I totally scammed him into thinking that getting this place was his idea. I acted dumb and apprehensive about paying so much money. He couldn't say no. Alhamdulillah. He is supposed to sign the contract this week inshaAllah.

This place will allow us to spend some much needed time together without his extended family in our face. He's already made a demand list of food that he wants. I've been asked to bring: basmati rice(supposedely the rice in algeria sucks), red lentils, egg noodles, tahini(sesame paste used for making baba ghanoush) and worcestershire sauce for cooking his favorite shrimp.

It's supposed to be a relaxing vacation, but I've gotta leave him wanting more because who knows when we'll see him again.

Asking for some more duaa sisters. I really hope the apartment works out. We need it.

The apartment looks lovely! You guys have not had time alone in forever and I think it is very important that the extended family realise and respect this. Insha'Allah the apartment will work out for you guys...
