Lovely & Crazy Mina gave me an award! She said :'Hijabee - That's one sister who makes me laugh so much i cant breathe sometimes...and has a very special talent for writing stories.'

This award has to be passed on to 10 other cool sisters blogs. I'm so touched, Mina * tears*. I really did not expect this award

Thank you! Oh! Thank you! I can hardly believe this! I feel so blessed! And this statue - it's so shiny! Oh, thank you again! I just want everyone to read in the tabloids that even in my wildest hallucinations, I never would have imagined that this could ever happen to me. And to the other brilliant nominees, I want each of you to know how totally saddened your crushing defeat makes me feel right now!

You know when they first told me I was nominated, I just had to take a minute and think about how great my experiences have been. I guess it all just makes me feel kinda special!

You know, there are so many obsequious stalkers to thank! First off though, I want to thank the self-congratulatory Mina, who looked deep within her Magic 8-Balls before giving me this fantastic award! Also, I want to thank God, for being such a powerful force in my life. And to Mom, who taught me to take life by the horns. And finally, to all the sycophantic bloggers - I couldn't have done it without you!

Thank you America, and good night! * ROund of Applause*

Ok, back to reality! lol. So, I'm gonna nominate:

Empress Anisa What can I say? I felt an instant connection with her blog. Her posts are always so instructive and beautifully written. You just gotta read her blog! She is such a beautiful person!

Mina She's like my long-lost sister from a different mother who escaped for 20 something years and I found her on Blogger minding someone else's business lol. Just know that I love you so much dear Mina and your blog is one of my daily reads, can't go through the day without my dose of Mina :)

Mama Mona Such a sweet blogger! Love reading about her life in Egypt and her beautiful children.

Ms.Unique This is another cool blogger. I love all her blogs, she has about 5 I think lol. Love reading your quizzes too.

Muslimahh is so so sweet! You can just feel her sweetness by reading her blog. She was also the first to comment on my blog when I started! KUddos * you get extra points for that* lol

Hajar That's my asian connection. I love reading about her posts about Malaysia, her travels and culinary posts.

Angela is just so kewl! She's my Aussie connection. I actually started talking to her even before I started blogging, weird I know lol. She's always got great advice when you need it and not just limited to fashion!

Yasmeen Another blogger I discovered recently! For someone like me who doesn't even love cooking, I got addicted to her cooking posts very quickly! Gotta check it out ladies

Amina What can I say about Amina? Ok, first Amina & I did not meet on Blogger lol. We went to college together in Boston and she was always there to explain Economic notions when I first majored in Economics. We lost track of each other till I met her on blogger one day. Her blog is rich with information about natural haircare and skincare products! I asked her once about haircare products and she mailed me a whole bunch for free. So sweeeet!

Yaye Marie This mamacita is my African connection. Visit her blog for a whole new look of the Continent. SHe blogs about African women in general, North Africa, South Africa, East, West, you name it, she's talked about it. Visit her blog to learn more about the old continent!

Flifla She's gotta be cool with a name like this! Read her blog for perspectives on living in France while wearing a hijab!

Safiyyah I wanna be like her when I grow up, lol! Her posts are always very well written & researched

Nida That's another gem in Blogger. Very interesting blog indeed, she also shares experiences from Bosnian Muslims that the media fails to portray!

Michelle is the cool Catholic Hijabi Mum in Scotland. Read her blogs to get a peek at her life in a farm in Scotland

Francesca . Her blog is the place to go if tou want fashion ideas straight from Morocco. She also opened a store where she sells beautiful hijab-friendly outfits that you can order directly from her blog. How cool is that?

Congrats on your award! I love your blog so far, just came across it now :)

Hajar said...

LoL~ Your speech had me in stitches! Well done! ^^ Really sis, you're being too modest here.

Aww~ is that ... me? *blush* Haha~ Thanks a mil' for the nomination. Tsk tsk~ you're far too kind.

Btw, I wasn't able to view the Sisterhood of the Traveling Hijab blog. Will appreciate it if you can resend the invite. :)

Thanks again!

~off to check out the other lovely nominees ...

Francesca Najea Lujan said...

I am so cheered-up! First, an award and then reading your acceptance speech - ROFL! You are hilarious! You just made my day! Then, to read such a fabulous endorsement from Sis. Anisa... well, I'm feeling a healing in my soul this morning! :) Alf shukran! I can't wait to meet all of your other nominees.
To answer your question, Anisa's first custom-made order got to her in less than two weeks. Her second order, a sizable one, was custom-made in less than a week. I'm really excited about that order because I made them out of warm wools and luxurious linens especially for her and I think they're really beautiful final products. I can't wait until she gets them and tells me what she thinks!
Fi Iman Ilah,
