Cia (Kinky Awakenings) and I had a great weekend watching movies and working out the solution to all the world's ills!
I had to take quite a few bathroom breaks early on, as I drank a whole carafe of coffee at IHOP Saturday morning before going over to Cia's place.
I had never seen Forest Whitaker in The Last King of Scotland. It was pretty gory...but boy was the acting great. We started at eight and Cia finished the back of my head by five!
(End of Day 1 - Half a head done!)
I had a little apprehension about seeing my mom on Saturday night, but you couldn't even see my locks under my hair. My mom treated the family to tickets to the see the African Children's Choir at the Ferst Center - our first Black History month outing this year. My boys enjoyed it, as did we all. The children put on a wonderful show. They danced, they sang and they told their stories. Some were war orphans. Some were AIDS orphans. They were amazing. We are some mighty strong people.
Anyway, I think my mom knows that I'm getting locks already. She knew I was getting my hair done, but didn't ask a thing about my hair after I came home with hair that didn't look any different that it did the day before! I think my son or the babysitter probably told her.
On Saturday we watched Drumline. I love that movie. We finished about an hour earlier on Saturday that we did on Sunday.
Finally, on Sunday, after getting all of my sisterlocks put in, I went home and watched my NY Giants win the Superbowl!
Now, I have just the slightest scalp ache, but it's nothing like when your braids are put in too tight.
More pics soon.
