She's going to school!!

I'm so excited...sort of. I finally broke down and officially registered DD for her pre-k program.  She will be attending half days at a really good school and I'm happy for her.  As for myself, I think I'll be suffering from a bit of separation anxiety, but I'm sure grad school, my part-time job and getting ready for the new baby will keep me busy. 

I'm confident that she's prepared (if not overly-prepared, if that's possible).  She's just the most intelligent, witty, comical 4 year old you'll ever meet.  Yeah, yeah, I'm biased, but whatever...it's true. 

This post is turning out to be all about her because I just have to share this hairstyle she's rocking. It's totally cute, and I think I'm going to do a variation of it on my hair (or not).  It's a Kai-Lan inspired hair style from Beads, Braids & Beyond, via Curly Nikki. Check it out:

I'm feeling this...

My new hair style...I'm just loving it! Plus, I can stop messing in it and maybe it will actually grow to the length that I want!  I kind of feel like I'm channeling Dorothy Dandridge in this pic, but as a natural. I could be a bit delusional, but oh well.

Here's what I did - I box braided my entire head (which took like 4 days, because I can't just sit and braid my hair all day), and set the braids on small (purple) perm rods.  I didn't sit under a dryer, just let it air dry and voila! I love it. What do you think?
