Sisterlock Adoration: Finding True Hair Freedom

This blog mostly follows my hair transition to Sisterlocks(TM), but it also gives me an outlet for my occasional social commentary. I always look forward to hearing from you about my hair or my diatribes. Thanks for visiting! ***BTW- Please do not copy my pictures without permission.***

I've been TAGGED!

Okay Everyone,

I am soooo ashamed that I haven't posted for so long. My excuses are multiple, and since I've been tagged by Cashana, I'll make my excuses part of the 7 things about myself.

According to Cashana, the "Tagged"rules are as follows:

You have to choose 7 things to share about yourself. Then choose 7 people to tag. Now don't forget to post a comment on their blog informing the person that he/she has been tagged, so that they can join in on the fun.

Seven things about Rachel
1. Excuse #1 -Since November of 2006, I have been working on a long term consulting project in Louisiana. This project requires me to spend approximately 95% of my time on site. Therefore, I am only home (Dallas) approximately 5 days a month. It really leaves my very little time for anything else.

2. Excuse #2- I am getting married Sept. 15 of this year. With less than three months to go, I am busy with the coordination efforts. I am fretting about how I will wear my hair. I have been locked for 10 months now, but I'm not quite sure that my hair will be long enough for an updo. I know for sure that I want to do a flower, but I'm definitely open for suggestions! Let me know if any of you have any ideas.

3. Excuse #3-My fiancé and I purchased a new home in March, but given my travel schedule and that fact the my fiancé hasn't sold his townhome, we still haven't moved yet! However, whoever, I'm home, I'm either packing things up for the move or working in the new yard.

4. I'm the oldest of six siblings. My parents are divorced. My identical sister and I are the only kids my parents have together. My mom has two boys, and my dad has a girl and a boy. I am the only sibling without children (but that could change one of these days). I have 11 nieces (7) and nephews (4).

5. I love to travel and explore the world. Particularly, I'm inextricably connected (by heart, soul and (unknown) ancestry to the continent of Africa. I've visited East Africa and Southern Africa and hope to visit West Africa sometime next year.

6. I love to read. Unlike Cashana, I don't get to read 10 books a month---only one or two, but if I could, I'd read for a living. I belong to two book clubs (though I haven't been to one for months).

7. I love my sisterlocks. They're the best hair "thing" to ever happen to me. I wish is that everyone could find a hair "lifestyle" that left them feeling confident and carefree. I've yet to find a person who wasn't absolutely in love with her sisterlocks. My hair is beautiful. I'm still freestyling because I think it looks best that way. BTW-The last time I was home, I left my camera, so I won't be able to post updated photos until I go home at the end of the month.

So that's me. Here's my list of ladies who I'm tagging:
Ladies, I hope that you haven't been tagged before. My apologies if you have. Thanks.
