Still a Naturallady

I am still here, I have been so busy with just stuff these past few days it is leaving me little time to do anything.

I do have one hair update, I washed my hair this past weekend and I blow dried and flat ironed it, OMG I forgot how soft my hair was it's been almost a year since it has been this straight. Don't worry it is only for this week I will be getting my twists put back in on this weekend just needed something done so I did not have to worry about it in the morning, my girls hair is also braided so I am free from combing hair.
So here are some pics of our hair, my hair gets rolled every night which I do not mind doing that. My husband is loving this hairstyle, he misses being able to run his fingers through it, I told him not to get his hopes up, I ain't going back. Anyways, this style has lasted me a week has to get washed out in the morning rain is coming.

Hair bows

So since I can't do anything with my hair, I needed something else to occupy my time so I decided to start making hairbows for my daughter. I love hairbows and since I always have to buy two sets of matching bows, because I love for them to match, I thought it would be cheaper to make them. I am just learning so I only made really easy ones to start, I found out the ones that look really hard are so darn easy and can't wait to make them. Here are pictures of some that I made for my girls and two neices.

Wash day. I made it another two weeks with a protective style, that makes it a whole month. This time though I need another style, summer is over and I don't have all day to twist my hair, I will be searching the web for some ideas.

On another note I just made some hair pudding using a recipe I found on Mixology101, I will be using it today to see how I like it. I also took about 1/2 a cup of the mixture and added two tbsp of Darcy's Botanicals Natural Coils Curling Jelly and whipped the two together cause I don't like it alone, it turned out great and man does it smell good. I will be trying it out too and will let you know how both of these turn out, I will be using the pudding on my daughters hair too and will post pics of her hair.

So far so good

Alrighty, officially back at work this week, all the little students are so excited as are the teachers. We have lots of enthusiasm by next week we will be looking forward to Labor Day for another break. Unfortunately the numbers are low so we may be loosing some teachers by Friday which is not a good thing. We are all hoping for the best.

On to hair: I am on week four of my protective style two strand twists, so far so good. It is so easy now that I am used to wearing the twists, I don't even have the urge to want to wash or experiment. Dag, it is easier than I thought. Well, this weekend is wash weekend, I think I will be wearing a twist out until Saturday it should last that long. My next question is what kind of protective style to do next? I love twist outs, they are so cute and I know I will not do a wash and go at all just not interested in them right now. Oooh, that is exciting to me, I thought I was going to have to wear a TWA forever. Anywho, I will post pictures to post this weekend, maybe I will get cute this weekend and head out with my sister.

On a house note (no pun intended): We went out today and looked at a neighborhood, we decided to get a house built, I find that more exciting, I look forward to picking out my own for my house instead of fixing up somebody else's. It is in another state, but only ten minutes from where we live now, all kind of in the same area. We just getting the paperwork started so we will find out where we stand in a few days. Definitely keep you updated.

Back on the payroll

No not a new job, but at the elementary school. It's kind of bittersweet, I am ready to move on but thank God for a job. Well I am thinking of taking a break for a while, only about a week :) I have been looking for a job everyday for eight weeks so I think I will take a break and wait to see what happens, I am just so eager to begin my new career. I have a fear of having a degree and not the job to go with it, cause it does happen. My husband keeps telling me that it is just a test that I have to pass and I know it is, but believe me I do thank God for my job and everything I do do at work I do it with a smile no matter how much I don't want to. Anywho, I am just glad to be back on the payroll cause my checking account is bone dry. Until then, later gators.
BTW, I am on week three of my protective twists styling, it's getting easier, I don't have the urge to want to take down my hair and experiment with it. Surely it will get more simpler as time goes on. Keep you updated,

Frustration...and not with my hair

I am so frustrated. I cannot find a job. School starts back on Monday, that means I go back to work, not happy. I have been searching for a job since school got out for the summer, 8 weeks to be exact, and nothing has come up. What's up with that? I like my job but I don't, I tutor children all day and other stuff and it's getting boring, the kids give me headaches, they are not as sweet as they look and this is elementary school ya'll. I am praying diligently that something comes up, always remembering that God said he would give me the desires of my heart, I worked very hard through school and graduated with honors, my desire is for a better job. I know it is coming, no worries, until then I will work as if unto God until he blesses me with another job. I was just on a hospital site and they had an opening in my field but it was nights, I mean the perfect job but the wrong hours. I definitely can't take a night job because that will be taking away from my children and after two years of school I can't be away from them or my husband, what's a girl to do.
Anyways, sorry about the rambling, just feeling frustrated and sad. On the plus side I get to have all my holidays for a while longer.

Part mohawk, part twist out

I ran across these pictures I forgot I took the other day. I took down my twists on Wednesday morning and wore a twist out, I thought they would flatten when I slept on them but they didn't. The next day my twist out still looked fresh so I took some pictures.
