So, I just returned from a long, 4 day weekend with Wei in North Carolina. He spent his formative years there and went to Winston-Salem State University. So, he wanted to take me home to his roots and an HBCU Homecoming. You see, I attended Princeton, an HNBCU (Historically NON-Black College and University! LMBO!!), so I’d never experienced this type of event.
I had a great weekend meeting his friends and family and spending Saturday at the parade, football game, tailgating and an after party. Here are some pics from my weekend (with commentary, of course;).
And finally, on a hair-related side note, I also had to resist my PJ ways. We went to a beauty supply store that had an awe inspiring array of products, including this Taliah Waajad display, of which I just had to get a picture! Despite drooling, I walked away without buying a thing except the jumbo eye pencil sharpener which necessitated the trip. Aren’t you proud of me ?!?!
