Let your hair down expo 2013 review!

Okay so our Saturday afternoon started out wonderful! Ok, not so wonderful. By the time we were ready to go to the event it was too late to grab a bite to go. So we figured if we got there by around 1pm we would be good. Not!!! Event started at 12noon, by the time we got there we were midway on the line. Turned around 5mins later to see the line had stretched around the block already. The line moved one step about every 10mins, and believe me I’m not exaggerating. Wish I was. Today was a bit chilly so, with no sun out. Not the ideal time or day to be outside waiting in any line!!! So around 3:20pm, over two hours later we finally get inside the “box”. No apologies were made while we all stood in line, no info was given. All chatters concluded that the space maximum occupancy was 300ppl. Now this was my first natural hair expo. I’ve definitely learnt alot!!! This event wasn’t organized well at all. It wasn’t there first and so I don’t think they have an excuse. Why sell out on tickets, if you can’t accommodate your guests? Needless to say I did purchase a few awesome pieces. A headband from ab boutique, beautiful earrings from Rhythm by Rena and my favorite custom jewelry piece made right on the spot for my dreads by wrapped up in creations. That alone made my wait worth it…

Being vegetarian has taught me to be very creative in the kitchen and especially since the hubby isn’t vegetarian. We haven’t cook meat in our home for over 5 months. He’s a vegetarian at home lol. But once in a while we’ll have seafood and this happened to be one of those nights. So lets start with beverage, we had jamaican sorrel. For grain and veggies I had mango barley salad, tropical quinoa salad, sautéed kale with peppers and stuffed shell with broccoli. My hubby had all this topped with teriyaki tilapia…our dinner was amazing, hope yours was too.

Be still and know that I am God…peace in the midst of a storm

This made my heart smile…though this cat’s surrounding seems evidently chaotic and filthy…he sleeps peaceful with grace among the ruins of life…Don’t let your situation define who you are or better yet how you behave. God is always in control. God is truly good.
