DMV Natural Hair Meetup- Recap

Last Saturday I co hosted and attended my 1st natural hair meetup with my sista Kee-Kee All Natural at Jaspers in Largo, MD. I had been wanting to attend a meetup for a while and when I saw her posting about the meetup she was working on- I contacted her and got on board! I wasn't sure what to expect, what was suppose to happen, or what we would "talk" about for 3 hours, but I did know that I was extremely excited.!








When we initially advertivtised the meetup- the RSVP's filled up in a few hours!!!! Alot of my Facebook and Twitter friends had their curls in a knot because all the RSVP's were taken. We established a waiting list advertising that as space became available we would open up additional RSVP's.


Days leading up to the event were stressful for me ( not really, but thats how I operate..lol..lol...). I really wanted all to have a GREAT time. Between working my full time job, family, and mixing products - THIS DIVA WAS TIRED.COM. The night before my daughter and I sorted the product samples from our sponsors and put together the gift bags.

I arrived at out venue 2 hours early!!!! lol..lol. I wanted to ensure that we had all the requested accommodations and set everything up. Beleive it or not I have a fear of public speaking, so I needed a cocktail of some sort just to introduce myself. Shortly after I arrived- the sky fell wide open and it rained cats and dogs!!!!!!










The control freak that I'am, I created little booklets that would serve as an agenda along as a "keepsake". We'll you know the ONLY thing(s) we did on the agenda was the welcome and introduction..lol..lol.. ( my "strutruced agenda quickly went out the window). lol..lol..












Once we all ordered food and had a couple of cocktails- we chatted about everything from natural hair, to grand children to cupcakes, and mishaps on the metro ( kee-kee- I will never forget that story :) Before I knew it, we were product swapping, drawing numbers for door prizes and give aways, and having some good "curl friends" conversations, sharing tips, and tricks, laughing up a storm!









I made some new friends, chatted up with some old friends, and over all had a GRAND TIME!!!!!! Much love to all that attended, and Kee-Kee thank you so much for allowing me to be part of such a magnificent event.
