Before and After Flat Pics

BEFORE






AFTER









My first flower design!!!


The kids and the Nanny did the sand here... The personal touches mean a LOT! One each!






BEFORE

AFTER
The furniture stayed in the same spot because of the CABLE... It looks much bigger in the living room though. I think that it was a good change and it happened with small pieces. I went crazy in IKEA! I cannot wait to decorate our house in America! With Gustavo and I on the same team, I know our house will be LOVELY!
Which is better? Before or After?

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!

 The board for Latonya Wilson!
 I was trying to get the lady in the backwards hat! She was an awesome lady!
 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…
(L-R: Michelle, Tamiko, Karina, ME, Kathy, and Monet)
 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!

Aqua Massage

(Be advised: The machine closes COMPLETELY around you!)
 The Nanny and I were at Lulu's shopping and on the way out... I stopped at this Aqua massage set up....
 I really wanted to see what it was like... Since my Nanny is probably the most SOPILED Nanny in Kuwait, She went too.
 It really felt GREAT! They told me how to change the water pressure and area... But instead, I just let it go the way it was set. I think that it was 3KD for 10 minutes. It really felt like 1000 Lil Chinese hands were massaging me... Choppy style.
Maryann is in there...

Beach Bumming in Kuwait!

 After I got off on Friday morning... I went to eat at Early Bird with a couple of friends from work. I had the Banana Bread French Toast... (Seriously- Try it!) http://www.earlybirdkw.com/
The WORLD is so small because a lady that works in there is from my county in Fla!!! Shout Out to Citrus Co!!! LOL.

I got home and told the kids to get their bathing suits on. I took them to one of the my company's buildings to swim... It was SO COLD and SO deep that I thought... Hmmm- I have been here a long time and I have never been to the beach! So... ROAD TRIP! I went looking for one place... But ended up at another!!! We went to the El Joan Resort. I liked it. It was not crowded... And it was so nice! I could not find a website... But the below is the resort right next door. We will be going there one day too! There was a section named 'Amber'




















Here are some photos from our day out~
