February 11, 2011 will forever be a historic day!

Today we found out that the Egyptian president has RESIGNED! Hate to sound immature, but OMG OMG OMG! Alhamdullilah! Just YESTERDAY he made a speech declaring that he wasn’t leaving until September (which is why I didn’t post, I was in such a bad mood), but now he has decided to resign!

The phone is ringing off the hook with people congratulating my family! I am SO happy. :’) I know it was our prayers that made the difference!

I was JUST about to post a recipe but this is too exciting! Will post a recipe as soon as possible, I promise!

Off to celebrate!! :D
