DFW Locked Hair Gathering



We had a really nice end of the summer gathering in Ft. Worth, Tx at Pappadeaux's 8/19/07. Bev organized and hosted the event and did a fab job! Jenn Jenn, who has the gift of hospitality, provided the most sweetest loveliest door prize gifts for all attendees. One of Gigi's male customers was in attendance and offered some pleasant conversation. He had traditional locs. As usual we had new attendees whose hair looked fantastic. Some said they already knew who most of us were from our blogs, which was nice.

We also had a few who were interested in getting their hair locked. The greatest benefit of attending a gathering of locked hair folks and you're interested in getting your hair locked is, you have the liberty to touch everyone's locks and get away with it, so to speak. You also get to ask millions of questions and see close-up how no two heads are alike. It's a fascinating experience. We did have a bittersweet moment, because two of the attendees are relocating to the East and West coast. Thank God for internet, blogging, and myspace. We shall remain in touch via the www. I'm posing in a couple of shots with each of them in the photo collage. Not sure who's hosting it next, so you'll have to be on the look out.

Enjoy the pics in my fotki album! Your comments are welcome!

The restaurant looks gorgeous, everyone looks beautiful and I definitely see all the new faces.

I forgot to tell Jen I love that necklace she's wearing. And to you Ms. Diva Maryee, I swear I counted at least 4 hairstyles throughout all the photos. When you got it going on...you got it going on!

thanks for the pictures and the great company. if there ever is a "next time" for me i will have to wear some really high heels.
and yes, the diva did have at least 4 different hairstyles but there were definitely more that did not get captured on film. it was hard for me to keep up and i was there.

Brand new day,

Thanks for dropping by and for the lovely compliments. Your locks rock and yes, you did make the right decision.

Goodnapps,

Girl, I tried to keep my hair up cause I hadn't finished retightening it. So down it came. Ms. Jenn Jenn's door prize for me was that cute headband which I love! Thanks! ;-)

Muslimahlocs,

We'll miss ya locally, but I know we'll see you on line. Keep us posted on your departure back West!

SIL,

You were definitely missed, but we truly understand why you chose Hawaii over us. We'll see ya next time, hopefully!

Wow you guys look great! You were missed terribly by me. Your color is almost completely gone. I am wondering if I will have the patience to grow mine out or not!

CV,

Thanks! Looking forward to seeing the LA crew get together.

Tra,

Missed you, too!!! I know it's weird when I see old pics of my color. I miss it, but probably will color it again one day...one day. :-)

Ja Stu,

Thank you, dear. I'm happy you took the plunge as well. It is such a blessing to have such a presence of locked hair on the internet.

Blessings ladies...

Number one, You ladies are all so beautiful. While each of you have sister locks they all look so different and your individual styles and personalities shine through. Secondly, it looks like a good time was had by all. Be blessed y'all.

Maryee said...

Thanks for dropping by Linda. Yes, we have a great time when we get together. Blessings!
