now that's unexpected!

At my local YMCA in a small Wisconsin town, I was stretching out after slogging through a session on an eliptical machine. Lots of women there are dressed in coordinated track suits and the like, with expensive running shoes.

I don't usually strike up conversations with them, since my ratty shoes and hastily thrown-own tees and shorts aren't much to speak of. I didn't even notice the woman walking toward me, until she said to me, "I wish I had hair like yours!" with a big smile on her face.

I thanked her and she walked on, giving me time to notice her perfectly highlighted hair, matching workout suit, giant diamond wedding ring and high-tech sneakers.

I couldn't stop giggling after that!

For fun, here is a quick snap of said hair, the envy of quasi-rich housewives in Wisconsin:

It's been awhile...

I've reached a year now with my dreads but haven't been able to post due to lack of internet.
Recently I moved out of my mom's house and into my own place so I haven't had the money yet to get internet but I promise once I'm at home, with internet I'll post some new pictures.
My dreadies turned one year on June 10th and we had a bit of a party for them along with a graduation party for my friend who shared the day with me. It was fun and I have pictures to post from then and also some gritty deep cleansing pictures. :) 

Everyone has been looking so lovely lately. 
Mini-time line to come.
