Two Strand Twist Out for Hubby's Birthday!

Hello everyone!  I'm feeling very blessed to have some time to blog!  Last week I finished up my first semester of Grad classes and earned straight A's.  I did so well that my adviser is recommending me to do another independent study with a very well known gifted and talented author and teacher next semester.  She is currently writing four books and teaching!  Wow!

Christmas was a blast here in cold MN and even colder in ND.  Christmas day was -7 in ND and I was missing warm and balmy MN that was 9 degrees.  I feel very blessed to have wonderful friends and healthy family, but I need a vacation from my vacation.  Anyway, I haven't posted anything about hair in a while so here is my two strand twist out I did today for my hubby's birthday.

My hair is getting longer and I'm noticing that my hair grows faster in the summer and slower in the winter.  No complaints from me.  I'm just happy that my hair is healthy.  I could live without the fairy knots (single strand knots).  I looked back at my blog and saw that I haven't done a two strand twist out on my entire head since this past summer.  Below is a picture of the last two strand twist out.

As you can see my hair has grown a lot since June 2012.  When I pull the curls down in the front, my hair is now curling around my chin.  Almost ten inches now and I'm thrilled!

My birthday is in a couple of weeks and the hubby out did himself this time.  I'm huge on quality time with the ones I love and since I don't need or want for any material things the hubby arranged for me and 25 of our friends and family to volunteer at Feed My Starving Children on the Saturday before my birthday.  What better way than to pack food for hungry children all over the world for your birthday party!

On a different note, I'm considering flat ironing my hair for my birthday.  Of course my mother wants me to relax it again (NEVER happening again mom), but maybe a once a year thing during my birthday month .  I'm not sure yet.  Kinda scary to go this long with curls and then risk the possible damaging effects of flat ironing.  Pipe in and let me know what you think.  I respect my natural hair readers, just be nice.  Until next time...

Light at the end of the tunnel

Just a very quick note since I haven't posted in over a month.  I'm finishing up my last project and I'm on page 20 of my write up.  It's due Wednesday and I'm seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.  My advisor is so pleased with me that she wants me to write my thesis next semester to get it out of the way, then finish up my classes this summer and fall 2013.  That would mean that I would be done next December 2013 instead of spring 2014.  I promise I will post soon and I have missed you all.  If  I don't post before Christmas, I want to wish everyone a very merry Christmas!
