The 10 Honest Things About Me

Here’s the deal to do the Honest Tag:  tell your readers 10 things about you that they may or may not know, but are true. Tag ten people and be sure to let them know they’ve been tagged (a quick comment on their blog will do). Don’t forget to link back to the blogger who tagged you.

Honest Tag

Ten Honest Things About Me (in no particular order):

  1. I trust people very easily.
  2. Every time I look into my husband’s eyes, I fall in love – head over heels – all over again.
  3. Whenever my driving instructor gives me abrupt orders while I’m behind the wheel, I end up turning the wiper on instead of the indicator lamps.
  4. I never refuse pasta or seafood.
  5. I’ve recently overheard the most beautiful remark from my mother in law:  “Not every girl is like our Nadia.”  (We’re looking for a bride for my brother in law actually).
  6. Whenever I try to save money to buy an SLR, something always comes up.
  7. I am already planning for our annual vacation – for next year – somewhere quiet and romantic.
  8. Having me as a wife has – based on my careful observation – immensely increased my husband’s level of patience.
  9. I cry at least once a month, mostly on trivial matters.  But I believe it’s healthy because it helps cleanse my eyes.
  10. As I type this, I feel immensely blessed (alhumdulillah).

Umm Travis, thank you for this fun tag;  I had a great time coming up with this list.

    LOL, number 8 made me laugh (and it’s so cute)! Number 5 is the sweeeetest! Bless! 😀

    Looking forward to doing this tag!


  2. Amir says:

    With #2 and #5 you are indeed #10, but maybe #9 helps improve #2? lol, confused yet?

  3. Jessica says:

    I think I’ve tested my husband’s patience…A LOT. But, good soul that he is….he’s learned how to laugh at my weird habits and methods of doing things. He’s a scientist by education…and his methodical steps go in one ear and out the other….I’m more of a “feeler” and less of a “thinker” ……

  4. Ubaid says:

    This was sweet 🙂 . . . Lol the driving thing was funny . . .

  5. Abid says:

    1. Could be good or bad!
    2. awwwww 🙂
    3. lol my brother is also learning driving right now 🙂
    4. pasta is good!
    6. Just put a little money aside, and promise yourself never to touch it. That’s what I did. That and a credit card helped. lol
    7. Maldives (for sure)!
    8. That’s a good thing!
    9. It would be ‘uncomfortable’ to be in Masood bhai’s shoes in those moments 😉 (j/k)
    10. Subhanallah!

    • nadia says:

      The putting money aside, I did – but ended up touching it. Things come up, like a new car (I want one as soon as I get my license, inshaAllah).

      Maldives sound interesting! We’ll research on that. Thanks.

      Yeah, even after 2.5 years of marriage, Masood still feels uncomfortable whenever I cry. Poor soul tries his best to make me feel better.

  6. Specs says:

    LOL, you can use water baths to clean your eyes, you know! 😀

    Interesting list! Hehehe. Can’t wait to see what others come up with!

  7. Nisa AK says:

    Awwww @ Every time I look into my husband’s eyes, I fall in love – head over heels – all over again.

    Avoid doing that when ur 60, head over heels is not too safe for old folks u know what with rheumatism and all that :P:P

    • nadia says:

      Not to mention the “coccyx” … ha ha ha … sorry, I am a horrible friend, I know.

      PS: I’m looking forward to your list 🙂

  8. Ms.Unique says:

    Masha Allah! nice to know more abt ya 🙂

    LOL “Whenever my driving instructor gives me abrupt orders while I’m behind the wheel, I end up turning the wiper on instead of the indicator lamps.” 😀

    • nadia says:

      Actually, driving on the main roads of Dubai is very new to me, and being surrounded by hummers, land cruisers, pajeros and other huge jeeps makes me nervous – hence the wiper 🙂

    #1 is also happen to me but this time I take extra precaution, maybe I learned my lesson… 
    #2 This is good because love never cease and it continue to grow everyday. Even myself I fall in love with my husband again and again, that is why we are celebrating our Anniversary this Saturday
    # Just learn to focus and everything will be fine. I remember the time when I m just learning to drive
    #4 Me too….
    #5 Good for you Nadia, because with me I will never be able to hear the comment of my Mother in law because she’s not with us anymore
    #6 Why SLR? You have to be strict in terms of saving, take it from me.
    #7 Sounds good! I might do the same
    #8 Same here…. I think it really requires them to do it
    #9 But why? Is this a regular basis? Masood really have a long patience
    #10 Good to know Nadia and thank you again for sharing… God bless!

    • nadia says:
