back to reality

hellooo fellow bloggers.. i must apologize for the disappearing act.. buuuut it all happen so suddenly and it took me by surpirse.. yeah totally by surprise.. lol.. so yeah, i went to dubai with the wifey and her family and i took my sister along.. it was barrels and barrels of fun..

however i can't update right now.. coz i'm too sick and lazy.. yes from dubai i brought back with me two pairs of shoes, sunglasses and a cold.. so i'm not feeling to great about it all..

but overall.. it was a great experience 7amdillah..

i hope you all had a WONDERFUL eid... and have not caused too much damage on your credit cards like yours truly..

much love the frogster..

oh yeah.. thank you very much to al lthe lovely ladies who gave me suggestions for the EID gift for my dearest mother in law.. (it doesn't matter that some of you were late *cough* mystique *cough cough*)

i ended up getting her a nice box with assorted soaps, hand creams and lots of these random things you women like to use after you have your showers.. buuut i didn't think it was enough so i got her a VERY feminine and classy and nice sub7a (subha) my brain is failing me in translating what it is into english so sorry :)

its black and short, and is kind of shiny.. ok it sounds disgusting, but is very sexy.. so yeah.. :)

S-O-S

People of the blogworld... lend me your ears... i am in need of some serious brain storming.. i need to buy my mother-in-law a gift for Eid.. and have no idea what to get..

i want it to be personal enough to show the effort, but not too personal so she thinks i'm an idiot..

she is a very elegant lady in her early 50's and owns a beauty saloon to give you the idea of her liking beauty related things.. and i want to be slightly inventive like i have in the past just to keep some kind of track record..

anyhoo.. ya'll have 9 hours from now.. its 2 p.m. GMT

and.. breathe out..

as some of you know, i am currently in Yanbu3 and not really loving the place..
for the past three weeks i've been driving to jeddah and back the next morning to enjoy having a life.. i love jeddah but can't live there..

FINALLY, my assignment here is coming to an end and INSHALAAAAAAAAALLAH i'll be going back to my mrs.froggy by the end of this week..

honeymoon planning is getting there but needs me to be there with her to finalize it.. i'm not really a true believer in surprise holidays.. suddenly telling her that we are going to whatever country on the way to the hotel.. it would be better if we both know what to pack and what you need and how much to take with you.. etc etc.. do you like to be surprised on your honeymoon?

dedication...
this goes out to Confused Arab Chick... darling i used your frame of mine of "on my wedding day all i will care about is the cake and the groom" on mrs.froggy when she was having a panick attack.. and it worked like a charm.. of course i took the credit for it at the time.. but i am thanking you on behalf of us both for helping mrs.froggy relax..

*takes a bow and takes off his top hate* yes i'm wearing a top hat in this dedication..

Goooing to the chapel and i'm.. gooonna get maarried

[Disclaimer notice: this post might sound like a rant, but really isn’t]

Ok I think its time for me to write an actual post rather than try and express how I feel through free writing and poetry

So yeah.. this is my third week in Yanbu… and this assignment should finish next Tuesday (fingers crossed). This trip to yanbu has stolen me away from my life back in Dhahran, my blogging life, my mrs.froggy and has stolen the enjoyment of spending Ramadan with family.

Buuuut, as always I will survive, I will survive, as long as I know how to love I know I’ll stay alive, coz I’ve got all my life to live, and I’ve got all my love to give, I will survive, I will survive.. heeey heeey… I’m beginning to sound like a life insurance ad on TV I know..

On the brighter side of things, the wedding arrangements are falling into place, but here is the little conundrum: does the girl reaaaallly want my input or is it just the comforting feeling that I actually care that she is after?

To be fair, we really don’t have a clue how weddings should be, all our suggestions are bizarre and don’t make sense.. I want the wedding to be simple and so does she, but our perceptions of simplicity are OH so different..

Last week we were choosing the cakes and that went well after she got mad at me for not being interested enough where I was but I was failing to see the huge difference between some of the cakes, and in some instances I was just amazed at how so much detail goes into the cake alone so I would just be quiet and admire… she was ok after I swore to her 634 times that I was interested..


The checklist is as follows:
Book the hotel ……………………………………………………………………check
Find a dress ……………………………………………………………………. check
Choose the centre pieces ………………………………………………………… check
Choose the flowers ………………………………………………………………check
Choose the husband ……………………………………………………………….check
Find the dude/agency who is
doing to do all the arrangments
on the day, I believe they call him “the wedding planner”……………………. check
Invitation list……………………………………………………………………….Pending
Invitation cards …………………………………………………………………….Pending
Entertainment (6agaga) ……………………………………………………………Pending

This is the list to my knowledge.. just to show that I DO pay attention, I know whats happening, but me being far away isn’t really that helpful…

So 7amdillah, up till now I haven’t had cold feet or anything stupid like that… the butterflies in the stomach are there but they are kool, I like them, they can stay…

Bless mrs. Froggy’s cotton socks, every time we walk into the hotel and look at the stage where we should be sitting she gets goose bumps and a tummy ache…
(the crowd goes AAAWWWW)

Much love,
The frogster

P.S. if anyone has any leads on to where we can resolve the pending items please feel free to help
