Debutante Partys and Cornrows

Hey girls!!

I am so sorry again that my posts are so spiratic lately!! Life is too crazy!

Today, I went into work and usually we have about 4 of the same little boys and they absolutely love to play baseball!
I watch, or chase the balls they hit over the fence into the drug infested apartment complex on the other side of the park...the perks of the job! haha!
Yesterday I was there, and these 2 kids I had never seen before came to play. One had a big up-do, and she looked at me (I look a hot mess everyday!) and she was like
"Kate can I do yo hair girl?"
I was like
" Whatchu gone do girl?" (im picking up the language, fitting in!)
I figured she really couldnt do anything I couldnt undo later, and if it was gonna make her happy, then of course she could!
She didnt have any scissors or anything rediculous!
So she started doing my hair and she was like
"girl yo hair ain't nappy like mine, but I mean I guess I still like it...its all blonde and junk!"
I just started laughing so I let her play with it for a while and then after like 20 minutes of that I went and looked at it in my car and SHE GAVE ME CORNROWS! Not all the way up my head, but far enough...it looked different!
But of course, I didnt wanna be mean, so I made her do my friends hair too, hes a guy with longer hair and she tore it up! She gave him some braids too...they said we were lookin right!
I finally felt like I belonged to the neighborhood and I wasnt an outsider anymore haha!
I took them out right as I left work.
Today, she came back with a hairnet, grease, and curlers and she said
"Okay lets do your hair again!"
Im sorry but I just couldnt let her do it!! Luckily the lunch truck pulled up just in time!

I am getting so excited about tonight, a good friend of mine is doing the North Carolina Debutante Ball and I am going to one of her parties in Charlotte tonight! We are leaving around 4 and getting ready in hotel rooms then going to dinner and spending the night! I loved the Debutante parties I had when I was a deb, they are just really fun! Its fun to get dressed up and dance until midnight! We are staying in a hotel and having a little after party! Too much fun!

I went yesterday to get a dress because the dress I had doesnt fit me anymore, it is too big up top...go freakin figure!
So, I went to this cute store called Bijoux and they had beautiful dresses...and I know this is so vein but I am so used to being a 2 in dresses and she brought out the most beautiful dress in red and it was a 0 and she told me she thought it would fit...well it didnt...my ass has gotten HUGE this summer and it wasnt looking good!
I was SO embarrassed! Now im over it, but at the time...OMG!
I decided I would wait, and come back if I couldnt find one somewhere else, because the other ones were so pretty, but too fancy for this party...it is called "Debs in the City" like "Sex in the City" so I went to Saks in Charlotte and found the cutest ABS black dress with 2 black flowers on the side and it is silk, I think it will be really good for the theme!

Since I havent done my 5 favorites in a while...here they are!

My 5 favorite songs of the week!
1.) The Prayer
Charlotte Church and Josh Grobin

2.) Break The Ice
Britiney Spears

3.) Best of My Love
The Emotions

4.) Pretty Young Thing
Michael Jackson

5.) I Wanna Dance With Somebody
Whitney Houston

My 5 favorite Things
1.) "For the Love of a Child"
This is probably the best movie I have ever seen! It is a true story about how ChildHelp USA was started, and it is the best movie! There is one little boy in it who is adorable! Obviously it is a Lifetime movie!

2.) The Lilly Pulitzer dinner and cake plate!
There are 5 plates in all, 4 little ones and then one big one! They are beautiful!

3.) The Lilly Pulitzer Wine Glasses!

4.) Im having a love affair...with Ebay!
I love Ebay, I just learned how to sell stuff, and I love buying stuff off of Ebay, it is like a glorified Marshalls. Everything I buy always is new with Tags, and I have never been screwed over! I LOVE it!

5.) Americorps
My parents talked seriously about signing me up this summer for a year. I looked into it, and I really love it. They think it would be good for me! I really didnt think it was a good idea to take a year off of school, but I think it would probably be a good thing to do someday.

Have a great friday!!

Hi! I was reading your posts from earlier about your room at school and I have the same bedding as you!! I was wondering what color you ended up painting your room? And also where did you get your white picture frames? It's like you read my mind for the vision of my room in my new apartment! Thanks for your help :)
