*While playing Risk with my Afghan family. My little brother is the red team and has control of the Afghan territory*
Matt: Okay Baba, it’s your turn. What country do you want to go after?
Baba: I will try to win back Afghanistan… from the Reds.
*Everyone cracks up*
My little brother and I just spent the last half hour walking around the house deciding which items were best for killing zombies.

Matt: This is really good. Are these green beans fresh?
My mom: Yes they’re fresh.
Runa: Fresh frozen.
Hello to all of my family, friends and fellow shmangsters! ;D
I will be running in the 2014 Rock N’ Roll USA ½ Marathon on March 15, 2014 inshallah (eeek!) and instead of just registering through the marathon directly, I chose to register through the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, in order to raise funds for blood cancer research. This means that I’ve pledged to raise a minimum of $1,400 for the cause and I have my fingers crossed that a few amazing people can help me get there inshallah!
In just the past year, three people that I know, all under the age of 30, have been diagnosed with different forms of blood cancer. Mashallah, they’ve been so amazingly strong. I didn’t know how I could help them other than through prayer, and then I was told about this event. Anyone who knows me well knows that I am NO runner! But from now until March I’ll be training and fundraising at the same time and I would love for some help and support in completing my fundraising goal and maybe even surpassing it! If you can’t donate, no worries, a dua (prayer) will do just fine as well! ;D Thank you for taking the time to read this and have an amazing day iA!!!
If you CAN make a donation (no amount is too small!) then please click the link below:
