Sisterlock Dinner

Dallas, California, Miami, Cleveland, Washington D.C, New York, Philly...The LockItUp Group represented! We met for dinner at Amy's Chicken & Waffles in Harlem.

I must send a personal shout out to Sandy for creating this group, how would we have ever met??

Kim, (top left in red) so nice to meet you, me and my buddies really loved your locks, you are sooooooo pretty!

Lashaune, you are such a cutie, beautiful smile and that hair is taking off. (with me in middle pic) Too bad we did not get to hang out like I really wanted. Maybe one day a DFW gathering???

Tanya and mom, (middle left) you two are to be admired for taking this journey together. Tanya's mom took the floor telling us about how she decided on Sisterlocks.. I love her spirit!

Consultant Cynthia was present and I don't know how I missed her pic, she was an inpiration to talk to. We discussed hair types and my early beginnings of bunching. Again, I was reminded that pattern four would have been best for my hair type. But in the end, Cynthia encouraged me in knowing that I am now on the right path and it will all work out well!

Paulette inspects Brenda's locs (middle and bottom right). Brenda has a wealth of knowledge in educating anyone on Sisterlocks.

Leighann, thank you so much for coordinating this dinner, you too were wonderful entertainment and fantastic energy! :)

Oh, the pic at the bottom middle is of Brunsli's hair tied with a really cute "mother of pearl" hair tie she picked up at Khumit & Kinks. Hate I missed out on that excursion. Posted by Picasa

I'm so happy we met in person. Since you were surprised by how shy I am, I'll have to add that I was surprised at how fun you were! ;)

This was really an amazing trip. I think we should make it an annual event. (Just after the bar next summer, please!)

Brenda said...

Ditto what Brunsli said about making this an annual event. I'm normally not a "joiner" of groups, as I'm actually an introvert by nature, but all of you were so welcoming that I felt an instant rapport amongst you. I hope we can keep the flow.

I am sorry I missed this one. I didn't get to meet some of my sisters.

Ummm, I think you left out California!

We left-coasters need love too. ;)

Eeks!! How in the world could I forget my dear sweet Brunsli?? Girl, I fixed that quickly.

I think it's a great idea so we'll have to start planning something for next year, after Brunsli bar exam, of course and that will be cause for celebration as well.

I must admit I really felt like I was part of a true sisterhood.
