Chain Effect

Sisterlocks is becoming a must have in B-more. I was so surprised to see so many natural sistahs working at my day job. Now so many of them have decided to lock. I am so happy for them. Many did not know I had sisterlocks... I like the way they look different on everyone. So ladies I am here for advice and keep checking my blog.

Being natural is like a chain effect, for some individuals sisterlocks, braidlocks, traditional locks, freeform or any type of locks stems from being natural for so long. Like myself, I was just ready to transition to the next level of hair freedom.

Dang I Forgot...

On June 10, 2008 was 8 months locked for me. Time must fly when your having fun I feel like I have been so consumed with home, school and work, and more work. It's been some crazy ish happening at my day job, so crazy that I finally began filling out applications for other jobs. Luckily enough the drama is not on me, but I hate to see people treated terribly, and some people just don't belong in management. They need to find a good spot in a mental institution, but I digress.

Guess what?... I had my first interview already. I think it went well. It is for a lead accountant position and it is dealing with systems, which is right up my alley. Sisterlocks are so versatile... they are even perfect for an interview. I rolled the front back on both sides, stuffed the rest of my locks in a hair net. This new do took me literally less than 5 minutes. It is also a great style to keep your locks off your neck throughout this hot ass weather. Ladies, a hair net is a must have. There is so many things that you can do with your locks and a hair net. After my interview I was walking down the street and stopped at a crosswalk. An older woman stopped me and said, "I wish I could be free too like you, but I'm not ready, I'm still in bondage.", I smiled as she rubbed her hair. Here is a few quick interview flicks.

Disclaimer: Don't Try This At Home

I will be officially 8 months locked on June 10, 2008. Today I thought I try something new. I actually washed my hair as if it was loose. I mean I was swishing around, rubbing locks together, the hole 9. I have not B&B since December or January, and normally I would just squeeze my locks and gently scratch the scalp... but not today. I washed my hair using a $0.92 bottle of Suave Cucumber melon shampoo that I got from Walmart. I am running extremely low on my Knotty Boy Soap bar since there is two sets of locks to wash in the house. I purchased the bar back in November and I still have some left. However I need to place an order for another one A.S.A.P.

Needless to say, my hair came out just fine.
WARNING: Do not try this without your consultant consent.

Someone Has Been Complaining...

Still LMAO! This post is for you!

My husband said that he loves reading my blog, and claims I focus more on the kids than him (I guess he is right). So baby this post is for you. Your very own post. WOW! You are a very very sexy man.

"WOW"... (like the flea said on the Comcast commercial.

So Much In So Little Time

All I can say is "Lawdy" A lot has gone on with me within a weeks time. On Thursday May 24th I had an 11 week doctors appointment. I had my husband come along because that was the day for our ultrasound. The doctor hooked up the machine, started scanning and could not find the baby. I had what is known as a blighted ovum. A blighted ovum accounts for 50% of all miscarriages. I began miscarrying 3 days later. Well, I went into this whole thing saying that God will not give me more than I can handle. Everything was in his hands and he has brought me through it. We had our share of tears, but the hardest thing was trying to explain to my other babies that the baby wasn't coming anymore. I thank God that he made me a strong woman. The Director at my part time job is going through the same thing, she is in my prayers too.

On a happier note, I just could not miss out on my daughters Girl Scout trip. I was still in a lot of pain on day one, but I got through it and did not want to miss that trip for the world. Her troop went to VA Beach. She had a blast as you can see from the pictures.
I also want to thank all the ladies that congratulated me on my new addition. That was very sweet of you all. Having sisterlocks has really made me apart of a true sisterhood.
Enjoy the pics of my baby and her braidlocks soaking up the summer fun!
