5K-Breast Cancer Awareness Camp Arifjan, Kuwait


I got off work then went to bed for 2 1/2 hours… Then I took the fam to IKEA… ( I am re-vamping the Flat, pictures to follow) after we got back we did a couple lil projects and before I knew it… The time was upon me to get to the event… You saw the part where I said I only got 2.5 hours of sleep right? I really didn't think that I was going to make it!


October is my favorite month! Not only was I born in October… But Breast Cancer Awareness Month is in October… Anyone who has ever been in the grocery store with me or has seen my desk can vouch that I support the cause!

I took part in something that is SO much bigger then just one or two people! It was amazing how many people showed up to also showed their support! I swear there were 300+ people there!

I still cannot believe I made it! I didn't take as many pictures as I wanted to, but if I receive some from other people… I will add them:)
 Here are some Links I found!

 We are getting our numbers!!! Monique CHEESING!
 My number was '6'
 Latonya with her board… This was before everything started, I am sure she had a lot more!
 They were doing ZUMBA on the field to warm up! It looked like so much fun!!!

 This was most of us… I put my camera away early though...
 This is Greg… He was super funny and another volunteer… He kept the times. I think that I can find my time… (More to follow!)


 I almost blinded him with my flash!

I got this lil goodie bag… Isn't it so cute? They had shirts… But I guess I didn't know about them until it was too late!
Some of the stuff that came in my Breast Cancer Awareness Goodie Bag!

 Princess Mims wearing my number! Sometimes she is so cute! She does that kind of stuff on her own!
(I did her hair SO CUTE!)


I wanted to also add some of the pictures that I FINALLY got from a going away event…

 Same order… But with our caplets on.
 I was glad that I was able to find a dress! And everyone looked so nice that night!
My Darlings from down stairs did my Make Up! 
Thanks MaNor and Latoof!
