House of Mirrors- Kuwait

 
My dear friend, JOE and I went to the House of Mirrors in Kuwait!
Joe is a the most WELL traveled person I know. I think that he has been to 35 countries (and counting) I like talking to him and my husband doesn't have a problem with it, so it is a win win!
 I LOVED it! Lidia was an energetic and COMPLETELY awesome lady! I loved this place! DO NOT wear heels, if you do, bring slide on shoes as well. (I did!) Be prepared to be there about two hours. She has you do a lot while you are in the house. She tells stories and explains a lot!
Lidia is from ITALY!
It is 2 KD (almost 8.00 USD) to go on the week day and 3 KD (a lil over 10.00 USD) to go on a week end.
I have all of the info at the end of this post!
 
Take a look below:

All of the upstairs is ART, ART and more art!













This is a drawing of Lidia when she was younger:)
















She is asking what is this made out of?


I won... I am so clever. Since I got the right answer, I got a prize!
Looks like a Patron Saint, don't you think?





 



I loved this piece



 





I had to REALLY bend down to take a picture with her!

Me and JOE

 

She took a picture of us












I had a great time!

Me, Alone... :(


I am feeling so sad today…

My Baby Bears (Dj and Mimi) are going to America at the end of the weekL and Papa Bear (Gustavo) is in Afghanistan… Seems like he will be back in 125 days!!! SO… I will be here in Kuwait ALONE for the first time in 2 years!!!
At least Mary Ann isn’t leaving me!!! But the question still is:

What am I going to do???

My sweet “Miss Idaho” is going to be in America too!!! Geez- I feel like I am missing something!
I would like to also add that TODAY is my 2nd Anniversary being in Kuwait!!!
Looking back, Time has FLOWN!

Contract Scare!

There are cuts being made all over the US Govt'... It also affects the CONTRACTING WORLD! Luckily- I am safe... For now! I will not get into the details about the contract... as I have never been one to talk about things if I am not a Subject Matter Expert (Ask anyone who has ever made a bet against me!)

HOWEVER- There is a job fair going on... RIGHT NOW. May 2-3 at the Hilton Resort in Fahaheel.
0800-2100.
Here is the flyer.
 

Red Hair

I have been slacking on blogging lately!

I felt so BUMMED because my MACBOOK PRO crashed... So I lost ALL of my pictures! What fun is blogging without pictures?    NONE!

I have changed my hair color... I went to red. I wasn't sure if red would work with the different color lipsticks that I grew to love... But I decided it was time for a change. Honestly- Being blond(ish) is great because I do think that you can wear whatever color lipstick that you want... But... Change is always good.  I went to a hole in the wall place... And I loved the hair cut that I received!!! The color is great too! I know red will always fade! But we shall see what comes of it. The salon is Salon Montana. It is on Exit 211. The lady's name was Selma. Here it is!!!
