So in the spirit of the new, liberated woman that I am, I am announcing my 50th birthday in January 2010. I'm inviting my SisterLock sisters and their significant others to join me on my birthday cruise.
The cruise will begin on 24 Jan 2010 in San Juan, Puerto Rico and will be stopping at St. Thomas, Dominica, Barbados, St Lucia, Antigua and St. Kitts before returning to San Juan on 31 Jan 2010. The cost ranges from $550 and $840 depending on the type of cabin you prefer.
I am not sure how to link to the flyer, so email me if you'd like to come along and I'll send you the information. My email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to meeting you!!
Don't forget to let us know what you think!

E! my loctician informed me that Dr. Cornwell, the Sisterlocks originator, would be the metro Detroit area conducting a Sisterlock Training Session this month. I had missed out on previous opportunities to meet her and decided that this opportunity would not pass me by!
She gave an informative and entertaining presentation and took the time to meet and take photos with many Sisterlocks sisters afterwards. She was approachable and very down-to-earth. Everyone was comfortable with her. I was impressed by her humility. It was a motivating presentation and I was inspired to support the industry as much as I can!
Her two sisters and niece were there to assist in the training. Needless-to-say, they all have the most wonderful sisterlocks!!

I attended a wonderful, motivational conference in Atlanta in June. I was having a great time going to the breakout sessions and shopping for School Counselor knick-knacks!
I was staying in a wonderful hotel in downtown Atlanta. While riding in the elevator on my way to one of the sessions, I met a fellow Sisterlock sister, we greeted each other and and admired each others locks. She then asked me if I was Chocolocs!!! I was so excited to know that I had actually met someone who had seen my blog!! She introduced herself as Candace, and I realized that I had seen her blog too!
At the time, I was a math teacher transitioning into high school counseling. I absolutely LOVE my new career. There really isn't anything else I would rather do! To all of the Sisterlocked counselors (school, community or whatever!) leave me a message. I'd love to hear how you feel about counseling!

On July 7th 2007 I posted a blog called Natural SDA Sisters! In that entry I showcased some of the natural sister at my church. One of those beautiful women was Sisterlock goddess. She introduced me to Sisterlocks, hers were the first Sisterlocks I had ever seen. she wore her then three-year-old locks so elegantly, I was convinced that that was the way I wanted to wear my hair.
Sadly, she is moving away from Michigan to further her career in Pennsylvania. Good bye SG and thank you for sharing Sisterlocks with so many natural women in South East Michigan! We'll miss you!!
I also posted a Get Well Soon blog for SG on 24 March 2007. It is amazing how time fies! I believe it is important to make time for close friends and family because you never know how long you are going to have them around!!

The first three pictures show my typical look, the rest shows my Free Styling!!!!
So . . . What do you all think?!

My style was achieved by using Caruso Steam Rollers. I left them in for about two hours this morning. I'm noticing that as my hair gets longer, the curl falls out quicker!

I went to
Creole introduced me to Hannah Ranay who had been following my blog and was surprised to see how much my locks had grown since I last posted! Well, that was all the motivation I needed! Knowing that my SisterLocks sisters had been going to my Site over the past ten months, only to find it unchanged, bothered me. I promised her (and myself!) that I would post the pictures I had been collecting over that time and update everyone on my Journey!
I washed and set my hair three days earlier on Flex Rods.

The timing was just perfect because I also got to attend the birthday party of a good friend who was celebrating his 50th the weekend before!
I washed at set my hair on Flex Rods they give a really tight, long-lasting curl.

I sat at a table with four beautiful sisters, two of whom I'd previous met and two I met for the first time that evening. They were great company! This was my first time out in over four months so everything was exceptional for me! The conversation, the food, the dancing, and the sisterlocks! I am posting the pictures I have on my camera. Hopefully, before too long, I'll get pictures from Archie (Paulette's husband and/or son) to supplement what I have.
My hairstyle is a week old braidout!
