Moti Girl Diary- Week Nine... I'm over the rhyme

Hey there friends, Moti Girl checking in on this beautiful evening.  How are you all doing tonight? I'm chilling, enjoying my Laker game and am desperately trying to suppress the dire need to violently place a muzzle on the Hubby's mouth.  He is the biggest Laker hater in existence and I just want to punch him in the face right now.  Yes, I have a lot of pent up aggression, but his constant heckling and jabs at Kobe Bryant bring out the worst in me. Great the Lakers lost. Man I need to go sedate myself now.  In honor of the Fish and his hating ways, I am adding a small video clip from a few months ago when the Lakers and the Heat played, so you could get a glimpse of the torture I have to endure on a daily basis.  Enjoy all you Laker haters out there... it ain't gonna last long.  Can anyone say 3peat?  :)

Anyways, back to Moti Girl... So this week was filled with dessert temptation galore.  So Baskin Robbins had their 31 cents scoop day, food blogger extraordinaire Azmina Aboobaker  http://www.lawyerloveslunch.com/ came over with deliciously exquisite mini cheesecakes (also special shout out to Seher who brought over a beautiful flan, but I didn't get a chance to take a picture of it) and my hubby surprisingly brought home a delectable box of Belgian Hazelnut Chocolates to celebrate my last day as a berkeley student.  I don't know how I am suppose to watch my caloric intake when every other day I am tempted to turn into a dessert Pac-Man and just gobble everything in sight.  I know I sound like a broken record, but as long as I get a little taste of something. Luckily for me, the day Azmina came over, it was obviously free day so I actually ate the whole thing. It was ahhhh-mazing. I urge you to check out her blog. It's fun to read, witty and she has some really great recipes.  Check it out now!

I went roller skating this Saturday with my family in San Ramon at the Golden Skate. I haven't been since my 21st birthday. Wow!  It was hilariously fun and brought back so many happy memories from my middle school days. I think it's high time to do a GNO there with the ladies... maybe a retro night?  I can't believe I just used the word retro. OMG How old am I?  32 is any of you are wondering. Needless to say, it was a very memorable time and the fact that Leila was soooo incredibly happy just made my day.  I only fell once and it was only because I got all brave and tried to bust a move while skating and landed flat on my back.  Yes, it was ridiculously funny.  I woke up the next morning feeling like I got tossed around in the dryer.  Note to self: it wasn't skating with the stars... I need to check myself before I wreck myself. Trust me I did.  :)

enjoying 31 cent scoop night

I haven't really done anything extraordinary this week. Just trying to eat well, drink lots of water and get some exercise in whenever I can.  Besides the fact that I have one final on the 9th, I am feeling quite good.  No stress.  I feel weird that this journey of completing my undergraduate is finally over, but at the same time I'm happy that all the hard work, the sacrifices have paid off (aH). Anyways, I don't feel like being a sap today, just wanted to share my 2 cents. 

Well here it is...

  5. My sister used to live in San Ramon and I used to frequent the Baskin Robbins there all the time! I am so utterly uncoordinated that you'd better believe I steered clear of any skating rink!

    Isn't Azmina the best??

  6. @JOJO thanks my dear... you're like my #1 faithful :)

    @Shabs you are in my dead 24/7. Something about the words abdominal obesity never leave me

    @Amna you know how I feel about your magic cookies

    @PiiE thanks for the love mama.. I can't wait to see you!

    @Ameena My parents used to own a Baskin Robbins when I was younger, so we ate it ALL the time. As far as the skating goes... I was one of those geeky kids who went all the time.

    I LOVE AZMINA! She is awesome!
