There's No Place Like Home...

I went home to Louisiana for the Labor day weekend and my sister and I took this picture in her back yard. She and her hubby have over three acres of land and can you guess was is growing behind us???

Louisiana is a major producer of rice and soybean, yep you guessed it, it's soybeans. Seeing rice and soybean fields always reminds me of my wonderful childhood growing up in the country of the Bayou State. Good people and good food! If it were not for the mosquito's I'd move back home. That's one thing I do like about Texas, no mosquitos!

My sister is in the process of letting her perm grow off so she can get Sisterlocks. I'm too excited and she can't wait. She has always wanted a low maintenance do and while I'd like think it was me who made her decide to go for it, I must admit that I'm sure it was my daughter.

Now, she and my niece will be Sisterlocked soon! She's wearing the braids until her hair is long enough to get good locks started without the perm on the ends. Who know maybe by December she'll be ready.

I could not resist having the shirt made to get my cousins off my back during my visit! My cousins always have something funny to say about relating me to Whoopi.....sometimes I fight dirty! LOL! The Shirt reads "Don't Live a Lye" Posted by Picasa

Yes, I love the shirt too. It's too cute. Can't wait to hear updates on the new converts. IMHO,
starting without perm is definitely better for a happier journey. Worth the wait for sure.

Of most of the people I have met with the Sisterlock group you have a touched me greatly. I have to say this I love all the people that I have met and throughly enjoy our outing. However I must say you have the kind of spirit that did not surprise me when you tried to help a person in need. Your blog is great and your time spent is not wasted. Thank you for sharing.
Sincerely,
b
