My New Camera

I've seen my SLers with some cool digital cameras, I wanted to post my new gadget. It is a SONY Cybershot DSC-W100 8.1 Megapixel. This is an awesome camera. My DH is into technology so he is an expert in any type of electronics. When he gave me the camera, I was like "How am I gonna work this, lol." It has so many features. I plan on learning as I go.

I took a picture of niece. My daughter braided her hair, so I decided to take a picture of her. Anyway, I'm happy with my new toy, lol.

Me and my niece.

This is a pic of me and my niece. I call her Princess. She is two years old. Her hair is long and curly. She has some beautiful hair.

My sister, thankfully, will not be putting any type of chemicals in her hair. I doubt she will be putting any type of locs in her hair, but even without locs her hair will be in its natural state and will continue to grow and look beautiful.

As far as my hair, nothing different other than that I'm loving my hair each and every day.

Siiiing Celebrate, Sing Sing Celebrate - FOR A KING

This is a tribute to a King. Tomorrow is the MLK Day. Every year I take this day off. Usually, I take this day to watch King documentaries on T.V. and listen to King tributes on the radio. It also gives me time to think and reflect how amazing this man was. I love talking to my elders who were a part of the King era and learn so much on what this man has done and what he did to promote equality in the world. My father fed my mind with so much knowledge in regards to the civil rights movement.

I remember when I was a little girl my parents took me and my sister to Atlanta. I remember like it was yesterday, we went to Ebenezer Baptist Church. We were outside taking pictures and guess who we saw. We saw Martin Luther King Sr. My father almost past out. He ask Mr. King Sr. for a picture which Mr. King was happy to do. My father was so nervous he dropped the camera like 5 times, lol. I shook Mr. King's hand. Back then I was young and was not elated as my father was, but now that I am an adult, I cherish and will always remember that encounter.

I was on You Tube and came arcoss the King Holiday video with the Fat Boys, Stephanie Mills, Menundo, Kurtis Blow, Run DMC, Lisa Lisa and Force MDs and my favorite group of all times, New Edition. I loved this video and is definitely a classic. I've been searching for this video and the album for years. Luckily I was on ebay and I saw three albums that are on sale that I plan to buy.

Enjoy the video and pay homeage to Dr. King and other heros and sheros that have paved the way making an impact in the lives of others.

Happy New Year Everyone!!!

I hope everyone had a good Xmas and New Years. I did. My hubby planned a nice and romantic Xmas. The week of Xmas was a celebration of each day. Tuesday was a Celebration of Music (He bought me a $100 iPod gift card); Wednesday was Celebration of Laughter (He took me to a comedy club "Zanies"); Thursday was Celebration of Scents (He took me on a shopping spree to Bath and Body Works); Friday was Celebration of Friends (I took my girlfriends, sister and cousin out to dinner. We went to Bonefish); and the last day was Celebration of Promise (Making our lives and love together the best that he can with trust and commitment) and he also gave a beautiful balloon bouqet, a cool digital camera and money to go shopping, of course, lol. I must admit it was different and very beautiful and romantic and I am blessed to have this wonderful man, my soulmate, in my life forever. I love my husband very much.

As far as my hair, I will be SLd for 17 months January 8, 2007. My hair is doing very well. I clipped a few of my locks that were extremely longer than my hair. I'm trying to keep it bob length. I might let my hair grow to my shoulders. I also decided to put on a little make-up so I can look cute for the camera, lol.

My next appt. is in February and I might be able to get my hair colored. I can't wait. I haven't colored my hair since August 2005 so it definitely about time.

I have started using the Sisterlock Salon Formula Shampoo and I dont' care for it that much. I'm gonna stick with the Sisterlock Starter Shampoo. Has anyone had the same situation. Anyway, hope everyone have a good year.
