I got a new Cool Pix camera for Christmas so I should have some pics up soon from the camera hopefully you'll see more hair details & the pics will be a lot better than the pics I take with my phone.
I promised that I would show you the pic of my personalized hair tie so here it is. My hair in this picture is pretty close to the four month mark. I have to put my advertisement in now (lol) Please check out my loctician's etsy site! If there's something there that you see but it's not quite what you're looking for send her a convo she can make anything to your specifications. She's a very talented young lady.http://sheabrojaes.etsy.com/ We thought being on Etsy would be a piece of cake but it has been quite disheartening to be on there for two months with no sales. So our aim after the holidays is to figure out how to reach more people. If you have any suggestions please leave me a comment I would really appreciate it & so would she!
Be blessed & happy holidays!

The funny thing about it is I checked the wall to see if it was still plugged in. It was plugged into the wall but had come loose at the connection between the two cords! I feel like such an idiot.
An update on the hair. I got retightened today. I waited 6 weeks & I don't believe I will go that long again. She had a hard time with my new growth it was all snarled up so she spent alot of time separating my hair. Usually it only takes her two hours to retighten me but today it took three & a half hours!
My locktician Janela also made a hairpiece especially for me with my blog name on it, she surprised me with it today. Stay tuned for pictures! And please stop by her etsy site to check out her jewelry and hair ties. http://sheabrojaes.etsy.com/
I'm blogging from work now but I'm very limited to what I can add on my blog from here. Hopefully I can get it to power back up or get it fixed without it costing more than what I paid for it.

Janela my loctician told me today that my hair is STILL shrinking! When I got my loc's in
August they were to my neckline near my shoulders, my hair is now at the ear & she tells me it may shrink more. See comparison's here. The first pic is the first day I got my hair loc'd and the 2nd pic is during month 3.
I have to say that this is the best move I've made getting loc's. Yes there's maintenance but what hairstyle doesn't. No matter what type of hair you have you're going to have to do something to it to maintain it.
Let me be the 1millionth person to say I LOVE MY LOC'S!!!!!

As you can see on the last picture that my top is still a little on the thin side but not nearly as bad as when it was first done. I am really happy with how my hair is transitioning through the phases. I can't say that my hair is always cute but it's getting there!
The store is open now we are still working on the graphics for the store but there are items for sale. Check back often because we are still adding items! Here's the link. http://sheabrojaes.etsy.com/

I began to burp alot & as the burping continued the pain in my back started easing up. I began surfing the net about back pain & gas and came across an article about trapped wind. It was very informative about natural remedies to try to eleviate the pain. It mentioned fresh ginger or ginger tea, also peppermint tea. Well instead of calling the dr. I went to the health food store and purchased some ginger tea & some ginger that was cubed & coated with a little sugar. I asked the store clerk if she'd ever heard of such a thing and she told me that the chinese call it trapped wind and that they are very informative about the things that go on in the body & how to remedy them with natural herbs.
Well needless to say I took my purchases home & ate a few pieces of ginger & I drank the herbal tea before I went to bed. I woke up this morning and the pain went from my back but was in my left hip but it was less intense. I can say as the day progressed without being to gross that the wind is not trapped anymore. LOL
I know you're wondering, why did she write about this? I wrote about it because I've found that it's not a very popular thing & alot of people don't know about it. So if all of a sudden you have an unexplainable pain just consider that it may be trapped wind. LOL
Also I'm not one to take medicine so to learn that something like ginger can help your digestive system is information enough.

Six things about me

Some of my ends feel like they are matting & I have found several locks that have balls on the ends. I guess this means I'm entering into the next phase of this lock journey. It really is an exciting journey. My husband thinks I'm crazy. He asked me today why are you always online looking at hair?! LOL I told him I guess I'm possessed! ;-) Also I suppose I'm like all of the other bloggers who say they can't keep their hands out of their hair. I'm constantly playing in it.
Also my hair is also thickening up with the exception of one area in the top of my head. My loctician says it's alopecia. I'm keeping hope alive though, if the hair can come in at the edges where I've never had hair before surely it can grow back there. I hope to have new pics posted soon.
Stay tuned & God Bless

On Thursday we went on these underwater scooters! Did I tell you that I don't know how to swim? LOL I got up enough courage to get in the water & ride this thing. At first I was excited when I got in it. I couldn't believe that lil ol' me actually got up enough courage to do this. To explain a little about it, it's like riding a scooter underwater. Your head is in this bubble out of the water. They have oxygen going into the bubble. Well I have to tell you that after I got in there I kept trying to convince myself to get my breathing under control, all the while at the same time I'm excited because I can see sea turtles & all sorts of fish. Well it seems like the more I tried to convince myself to get my breathing under control the more I began to hyper ventilate! They teach you hand signal's to show if you're okay or not. Can I tell you I was waving my hand like a crazy fool to get me out of there! They lined us up to take pictures so I probably look like a rabid fool in the pictures. Stay tuned I'll be posting those at a later date.
The last day on the island we went to Coki Beach & hung out. Randy, Michael & Sandy snorkeled while I hung out on the beach. You can see I met a new friend on the beach she's a cutie isn't she? She's only 2 & she was quite a ham in front of the camera.
As for my hair I got it wet quite a bit & had to wash it a few times. It held up fine, no slippage yet! I would have liked to get more pics of my hair or myself for that matter but noone seemed to be able to work my camera, which is on my phone! LOL So I took a few of myself but you really can't see my hair that good because I really wasn't focusing on it.
Well it's good to be back home I just wish I didn't have to go back to work tomorrow!
Stay tuned for more pics from the trip.
How could I forget to mention this very nice night spot we went to called Havana Blue. The atmosphere was laid back, nice. The food was terrific. Randy & Michael sat & smoked cuban cigars. It was a great night, very expensive though.

Needless to say we arrived safely. St. Thomas is a beautiful place, so serene. Since I'm using my camera on my phone I won't be able to post pics until I get home. I refuse to pay 25 cents per text to upload pics so stay tuned!

Yesterday evening my husband and I met my cousin and her beau at a Mexican Restaurant in Milwaukee called LaFuente's. The first thing my husband does before we're seated at our table is go order a pitcher of Rainbow Margarita's. I guess I should explain that I've had a cold for over a week that seems to come and go, and at this point I'm just coughing relentlessly all day and night! Well let me tell you I didn't cough a lick after having a glass and a half of this stuff! I think it's the perfect elixir for a cold! Did I mention that it's also delicious and potent!
Sandy if you're reading I want you to know that we really enjoyed last night. Earl is a really cool & funny guy. He absolutely knows how to be the life of the party! I think you should keep him too!

As for my hair it's coming along. I'm very thin in the top, unfortunately from years of use of the creamy crack! I'm looking forward to the day when it all fills in. I do understand that this is a journey that takes patience & understanding. It's also a learning process that I'm willing to be a student of.

Til next time.
