Our five year adventure in Doha, Qatar ended June 1, 2012, but the memories will always remain. It's back to Texas where I have decided...Qatar isn't cornering the market on "quirky", as I once believed. Thanks for opening my eyes to the world, Doha!

Kristi says...

After arriving back to Doha Friday evening, I went to sleep around eleven and did not wake up until three this afternoon..and only because my mom so rudely forced me out of bed. Since my sleeping schedule is so screwed up, I've just finished my homework..at 2:40 am and what better to do with my time than write a blog? (not to mention..my mother's practically been begging me to) This is the dinner setting at prom. Instead of going out to dinner, we enjoyed our three course meal in the privacy of one of my friend's living rooms. Our set up included silk covered chairs, flowers, name tags for our seats, and parents as the waiters. The best part about prom was getting to see my best friends, of course. I unfortunately had a slight burn line noticeable in some of my pictures as a direct result from Thailand. Oh, these vacations are killing me, Mom! Despite the tan lines, I really enjoyed myself. With my Qatari prom dress and Thai headband..I knew no one would have the same outfit as me. Thanks, Mom & Dad! After enjoying a fun filled few days with my friends, I headed to Austin to wrap everything up before heading back to the desert. I feel like I'm an official adult since I have now driven from Port Neches to Austin all by myself. And to my Mom's relief, I do in fact approve of Kayla's boyfriend. =). Well, now that it's three and I'm waking up at six, I better head to bed. Have a good weekend!


  1. Kristi, how did you grow up so fast. As the youngest grandchild you were not suppose to become an adult yet. I tell you I am really feeling my age. You have blossomed into a beautiful woman, inside and out.

  2. Kristi, you did the dress justice. You were perfect for each other! I'm so glad you got to do your senior prom in the USA. Looking forward to the Doha event, as well! Please feel free to put your pen to the paper more often :)


I always love hearing your comments. Go ahead make my day, be it the good, the bad, or the ugly...
