Yesterday I attended a bridal shower tea at the Ritz Carlton. I was the photographer, so I hope the pictures came out well. The attire was hats and gloves. Clearly, I thought I was hot stuff! The zebra bags in the backseat were the gift bags. More pictures to come!

Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,
Bending beneath the weight of his wind and mercy.
When all of a sudden,
I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory,
And I realise just how beautiful You are,
And how great Your affections are for me.
And oh, how He loves us so,
Oh how He loves us,
How He loves us all
Yeah, He loves us,
Oh! how He loves us,
Oh! how He loves us,
Oh! how He loves.
We are His portion and He is our prize,
Drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes,
If grace is an ocean, we're all sinking.
And Heaven meets earth like an unforeseen kiss,
And my heart turns violently inside of my chest,
I don't have time to maintain these regrets,
When I think about, the way…

My second daring cooks challenge did not come out like it was supposed to. Unfortunately, it was all my fault. I thought I was better than I am. I thought I had developed magical dough handling skills over night. Alas, it was not so. The recipe had plenty of things I'd never done before: roasting chile's (I used jalapenos. Why? Cuz they were both green and I didn't see anaheim chile's when I was shopping) and working with tomatillo's. But that wasn't enough for me, I decided I needed to make my own corn tortillas. And that's where it all went wrong. My tortilla's came out horribly! They were hard, too thick, and it took me almost 20 minutes to do each one. I ended up only making six tortilla's and then I fried them and made green chile and grilled chicken tostadas.

Last Friday morning before we flew out, I twisted my hair. The plan was to wear the twists Friday, and a twist out on Saturday-Monday. I woke up 10 minutes before it was time to leave for my sister's graduation on Saturday, so I kept the twists in. Sunday it was rainy, and Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday I was lazy. This morning I finally got around to taking my twists down. I'll probably redo my hair on Saturday because I have a work training in Chicago and I need to look kempt and cute, because the last time the Pres and V.P of our department saw me, I looked a wild ragamuffin mess!
I washed and conditioned with Organix (coconut milk line.) For my leave in I used Giovanni and then parted my hair in 4 sections and applied Oyin Whipped Pudding and Burnt sugar to each one. Pulled my hair into 4 pony puffs á la Serenity23 and let it dry for a few hours before twisting (while I slept). Every other night I put whipped pudding on my twists and every morning I spray my juices and berries before I shower. If my scalp wasn't so janky in the heat, I could probably go 2 weeks without having to redo my hair because it stays soft and moisturized. After 3 days, I retwist the bottom row and any other pieces that look a little frizzy, but it's never that many (I think I had to retwist 10 this time.)
You doing anything new with your hair? Trying out any new products?

We're travelling back from Florida today. My sister graduated from FAMU this weekend so we went down to celebrate. I have pictures, but they were all taken by my 9 year old cousin, so we'll see if there is anything worth posting, lol.
Tomorrow is TheCount and my 7 year anniversary. As long as he doesn't see this picture of things I do to hime while he sleeps, then we'll make it to our anniversary! I should be back to regular blogging this week because my chaotic month at work is over! *crosses fingers, prays, and pleads with God*
