finally got my EVO back!!!!!

ive been MIA for a week or so, but much hasnt changed except i finally got my EVO back!!!!! as for hair, i tried a style i seen on prettydimples 01 youtube. it came out nice i think. but i want to redo it and make my flat twist smaller and possible blow my hair out before twisting. i just think this style will look a little better with my length. speaking of lenth...... oh how i miss my straight hair. i was looking back at pics and i miss it. it was always "blinging", trimmed, full, and just pretty. i am still holding out on pressing until at least october. my origianl goal was september, but septmeber is almost here. we are going on a cruise mid sept, so it would kinda be a waste to press and then worry about my hair on the cruise.... but i may change my mind :)

ok enough rambling, im taking off for now as my little busy bodies are doing what they do best :)

life, work, hair, nursing

this will probably end up being a very long post. i have to make my semi annual goal/to do list and since my phone is outta commision:( i will use this. well lets start with hair

Hair goals
its been 2.5 months since i pressed my hair, my short time goal was to make it to september which i dont think will be a problem. i will probably get my hair pressed and trimmed around November/December
-color, for years i have been contemplating so hair color. however, i have always beena plain jane and dont do much with my hair. for years its been the standard press n curl, but since trying alll these natural styles i have a new found confidence and "braveness" lol. i love my hair more than ever and its time for some color! i dont know what the color will be, i will most likely do highlights because i cant do something to dramatic :)
-visit a natural hair salon. i have a few on my radar list. http://www.facebook.com/ShidaNatural shes #1 on my list. i love her wash n go! shes only about 1.5hrs away from me n NJ but i think it will be worth the drive. she also has a spa and she holds zumba classes. if i go, i will try to make a day out of it. i first need to get over my fear of driving over bridges and going thru toll booths smh

- HAs been awful laetly, my manager is public enemy #1. i love my job and my coworkers and really dont want to work anywhere else, but my manager has no respect for us as nurses. he speaks to us like we are slaves/losers. so much has changed since he has been our manager, hardly any for the better. i could go on and on about him, but i will just say that i have to update my resume and at least explore other options if things dont get better. i have no idea what i would want to do though :(
-certification, i will bee taking my CPAN in novemember! this is a certification for perioperative nurses! i have been a nurse there for almost 3 years... crazy. when i was in school i alwasy said in my professional life i will always seek out education oppurtunites, aattend conferences, blah, blah, blah, but i havent so i plan on fixiing that :)


- i would like for jarred and i to go on dates lol. we have to start setting aside time to just spend with each other. we are going to hawaii in april 2011 sans kiddos. but until then i think we should at least have a date night once/month or every 2 months
-exercise jarred bought me a wii fit last decemeber because i said i wanted to do yoga and stuff. iplayed with it for maybe the first month but havent touched it since january or something smh, i have to get back into that
-friends/family i need to spend more time with them. i would like all my siblings to get togwether every month either at my house, moms, sisters and have a sunday dinner. growing up my mom always made snday dinner and now that all of us are grown and most living on our own i miss that and im sure my mom does.... so we have to do it at least every month. as for my friend, i would like to see them at least once a month too. maybe for shopping, lunch... anything!
nutrition- i have serious GI issues, which i think is mainly related to my diet, ineed to eat much better and cook more often
house- GET ORGANIZED~~~~~ i need to get rid of so much things we dont use anymore. i also want to redo our bedroom and the dinning room. the dinning room jsut needs furniture. i would love to "update" the bathrooms as well. for the living room/rec room they need serious organization and style too
sheesh! i have a lot of work ahead of me lol. i love making list though, because its very rewarding when you look back and see how much you have accomplished

flat twist!

one of many things i need to blogg about is my flat twist! this is my first time doing them and i am no where near good yet, but im gonna wear it :) the front is flat twisted and the back two strand, all of the twist are on rollers. hopefully it looks ok in the am.

i did a litte trimming to my hair last night, i had bought shears a couple days ago and was itching to use them. i had just twisted my hair and was so annoyed by my frizzy stringy ends so i snipped a few. when i did it looked to fresh and still didnt curl so i was seriously annoyed and just put the shears away :( my plan is now to just wait until september or october and have my hair trimmed professionally.

i finally found the shea moisture products at target! i was so suprised when i got there because there was also miss jessies shampoos, culry merigne, and KC come clean, a few jane carter products also.. i was torn between the shea moisture curl smoothie and miss jess curly merigne, butt i ended up getting the shea moisture. i also got their styyle milk :)

laslty, because this post is probably super boring lol. i have been noticing so many natural ladies and i am loving it!in the supermarket i seen about 4 ladies, one ladie stood out because she had the neatest locs and the ends were curly like she had twisted them. i loved it.

i think thats all for now... later :)

Whole Foods!

I went to whole foods today and was in love! they had all the products i have been reading about. i was a little overwhlemd as i didnt have a "plan" for what i wanted to buy. i defintely wanted a sealing oil and deep conditioner but once i got in the store there was henna (in a jar), giovanni products, KCCC, jane carter. i really wanted a twisting gel/cream but they were pretty pricey. i eneded up getting jojoba oil and giovanni deep condish :)

in other news..... i really really need a trim. my damaged ends are so strangily and annoying. my hair is in twist now and the only reason why i havent trimmed is because i dont have the proper scissors.

anyways, im off to target now :)

whole lotta bun

yesterday after a terribly failed twistout I was in a serious crunch and had to do something with my hair. I didn't have much time cuz I had to get to work :( I grabbed and headband and attempted a bun! I didn't love it but it was neat and presentable so I just went with it. I got so many compliments! well except for one guy who said it looked Like I just woke up and just threw it together. this other guy says " I thought u were trying to catch a man cuz u keep changing your hair" lol I told him I have had a man for 10 years happily married for almost 2 years lol
