Brody’s Wednesday Letter: LMAO!
I know that I am on a “time out” right now but I wanted to answer your question “WHY??!!” I go crazy when you vacuum. It is my belief that the vacuum is an evil monster out to get me. I mean it seems like every time I try to have some “me” time and play with my toys….the vacuum comes strolling up on me with this loud noise!! So I say to myself….self: don’t let the vaccum punk you…BARK!! And so I did!! Just like this picture…he feels me!! I’m just sayin!

As Natural As They Come!!
I am as natural as they come!! I broke away from the “Creamy Crack” in October 2009 and have enjoyed it ever since. I just love the healthiness and shine my hair has. Although I did fall off a bit while planning my wedding (believe me it was a hectic time!!), I am back and can’t wait until I can show off my curly tresses…just like Joan from Girlfriends…..aka Tracee Ellis Ross
