Banegas Babies

I know that I haven't written, but I have been busy! I had the twins at 36 weeks:) They were born healthy!!!
Xander Justice was 6.10 lbs and Xylia Marie was 6.6 lbs. They were both 18 inches long! Pretty good size twins for 1 month early huh? Xylia was having some breathing problems, but I got her after a couple of hours! I did go into pre-term labor once, at 33 weeks but they stopped it, I did get the steroid shots for the twins lungs though... Here they are!!!
 Me getting BIGGGGGG... I was 34 weeks here.
 Xylia and Xander
Xan the Man and CeeCee
 I can't believe I have 4 kids! I love them

Oh Doctor...

We went to the doctor on the 10th to get our prescription... It was EXPENSIVE. 159.500 KD
(565.48 USD)
 I have to take these for 7 days! I must go to the hospital to get these injections.
Gustavo will not be able to give me these injections... Joy oh Joy! I start these tonight. I will provide follow ons!
I am really feeling LOST in the process. My doctor hasn't given me a protocol... Or a timeline. I have been doing this about a month now. Medicine, hysterscopy, WANDA scans, period, More shots... SILENCE... And then more meds and shots.
I talked to another woman and she said that she went to the doctor and got shots in her stomach for 5 days... And Waaaaaaahhhh La... Egg Retrieval and Transfer... Preggo with Twins. (BOYS)
Even with the stuff that I am reading on the Internet... NOTHING matches the meds that I am given! I asked "Will I have a 3 or 5 day transfer?"... And he has the whole "Inshallah" attitude.
I never really get any answers...
(Woosa, whilst pulling upon my ear)
Practice my patience!!!
It is hard being a PLANNER and not being able to PLAN!

On a happier note!!! I get two days off to spend with my LOVELY family!!!
Seems like all of my teacher friends are off on FANTASTIC holidays! Enjoy EID! Have fun!

Gustavo's Birthday!!! Cuts Steakhouse

Gustavo had a birthday! It was on Saturday! We celebrated on Saturday and Sunday! I know... He is so spoiled!
 So my Hubz was NOT able to decide what cake to get for him birthday... So I picked! CAKE N BAKE Yummy!
 My 3 babies... DJ, Mimi and Louie

The traffic was HELLA crazy on 30 for some reason! We were going to attempt to find RIO!... But No luck! I was happy to see that there was a Brazilian Steakhouse in the Avenues! (What don't they have?)
 Mims, Maryann and DJ
 CUTS!!! Inside, I liked the deco. The kids actually REALLY love the place as well!





 I learned something new, thanks Gustavo! Panoramic



 Our family!
 KISS KISS KISS KISS







Then to the CHEESECAKE FACTORY for a desert! Gustavo and I had the Red Velvet Cheesecake and the kids split an Oreo masterpiece!
I got my Hubzy some new shoes and a new watch... I thought he needed a watch with a BROWn band... As I never saw him wear one like that before!
I will take a picture... As I see he wore it today!

Gustavo~ I want to say THANK YOU for sticking by me! I know I am a flawed woman, but I am always striving to become better and to make you and the kids happy! Forgive me for not telling you daily how truly blessed I am to call you my husband!
I thank you for all that you are and all that you will become! 
Together we can make it thru anything! 
Forgive me for my time of weakness and bad judgement!
It's just me and you!

Te Amo Mi Suave!

Moving to the Tampa Area


Oh the time is nearing! It is time to CLOSE on the house. We decided to move to the Tampa Area.

I am a FloridianJ And I LOVE my Sunshine State! After a LOT of research; we chose TAMPA.

Why???

Well- Here are our TOP ten reasons:

1.  They have a NFL Team

2.  They have a MLB Team
 

3.  Theme Parks
 


 

 
4.  Beaches
 

 

5.  Good central location (close to Orlando, Miami and my hometown too)
 


 

6.  Military Contractors J

7.  MacDill AFB
 


 

8.  International Airport

9.  I think that the job market looks pretty promising!
 
10.        It is FLORIDA!!!

The house should be done in November! We are excited. We have been buying a lot for the house. We try to knock out a little every time that we get paid. I know that we will be busy so I do not want to have to be stressed out doing a lot of other things that need to be done as well. I would like to just close on the house… And start decorating and unpacking! Enjoy a bit of time with my family as I cannot recall how long it has been since we have been in Florida… I want to say…maybe since Mims was 2! So that is 5 years!!! Wow! Time has been FLYING!

To know... or not to know?

One delightful Blogger in Denmark has "Blogger get togethers"... I also Googled it and it looks so fun!!! I thought WOW!!! How fun would that be to do in Kuwait?!...

Then I started thinking... "Do I really want to know who is behind the blog?"
Most of the bloggers in Kuwait do not show themselves, they may not show themselves for a get together function either... :(

There are a few that I would really love to meet because I think that they are the COOLEST people on Earth!

What if all this time... I knew them!!!?

That already happened! Expierence: No BUENO

One day I was reading a blog that I liked when SOMETHING stood out to me! I shook my head in sadness as I realized... I knew who the writer was. In REAL LIFE... I didn't like her. At all. She was RUDE and Negative... She had a smart mouth... And most of ALL... she was LAZY! She wouldn't even get out of her chair to help me... She rolled her chair to the printer that was only 2 feet away! Blahhhhhhh. Office job, made easier!!!

The other run in I had with her was when I went on a company sponsored Visa Run and they had me staying at a HOOKER infested Hotel! I left... Flew back to Kuwait... (Visa wasn't at the AP yet) so I Booked a ticket the Bahrain... Spent the night at the Movenpick and then returned on my regularly scheduled day. When Mi Suave explained WHY... She said, "It wasn't supposed to be a vacation"... Derrr. But I refused to be propositioned on the way to my room by IDIOT contractors who thought that I may have been a prostitute! On top of that you could hear their "FUN" in my room... In the hallway, ETC!
*Amber, No Likey!!!*

Burj Al Arab


Here is the office inside the room... It has a computer and a printer... ETC
We were upgraded to a TWO bedroom suite! OMG- This place was HUGE... I loved it!
When you step out, the butler knows where you went, they clean up ASAP... We had a BUTLER...!!!??? 
WE really loved this hotel~!

Control your room

This is another way to control your room... And when someone rings the doorbell... Their picture appears on all the TVs and this monitor! Cool huh? And you can just hit a button and the door opens... Why get up?
The Mini Bar... The Bulter during checkout asks what you took from the mini-bar... Gees, I hate being so honest!
Special Edition- We did not open it!
When you first walk in to the Suite.

Cool... I like this clock projector:)

They provide EVERYTHING here!!! And they turn down your bed, give the men a nail buffer and the women get a hand fan... I love it!
My handsome Hubby!
who wears slippers at a 7 STAR hotel??? Gustavo!
Going to get a couple of drinks at the Skyview Lounge
Dancing fountain... I did not take many pictures because there were SO many tourists in the lobby...
To get in, you have to have a reservation for the hotel or the restaurants. I didn't want to look silly taking photos of everything... We didn't even get to the POOL! LOL. We stayed in the room. Staying a place like this... you NEVER have to leave! They have a private beach, you get free access to the Water park and all the Jumeriah hotels in the area...




You order your breakfast and tell them what time to bring it... And they do!



Bye Bye hotel!!!







This was the remote control... It ran EVERYTHING in the room!
