Good Morning, Sunshine!

Hey guys,
How's it going? It's been a little bit. It's also been up and down lately.

Someone spit in my hair.


Here's how it goes. I wasn't feeling well at the gym so Steve and I decided to go home. It has been decided by some people that it's fun to scare white people up in Harlem. Steve and I were walking home. Talking to each other. Only. And someone sneaks up behind me and literally screams, "HOW ARE YOU DOING?!" But I didn't jump this time. There was no reaction. And I just let it go, because I knew what was going on. Steve didn't jump either. We just let it go.

And then he spit in my hair.

They talked about us and walked away. Steve didn't even realize it and I had to tell him. I held it together for awhile, but then I burst into tears.

Here's what gets me: I would NEVER do that someone. Anyone. No matter how angry I was. And I think it hurt me to think that I could just be standing there and someone would do that.

We prayed about it, but I would just randomly cry throughout the night. Maybe that was stupid, but it felt so personal, you know?

But the rest of this week has been good. I got both of the bridesmaid dresses that I needed to come in. BOTH need alterations. Which would normally piss me off, but it means I've lost some weight, so that's good. Then, I got an e-mail about an essay contest for TOMS. For a shoe drop in The Valley of 1,000 Hills!!! How crazy is that?! I'm trying to write my essay now. I write frenetically and just submit things. I want to take my time on this one.

So how are you doing? How's your week been?


  1. That is awful....please spit in someones hair. How rude is that! Sorry that happened to you.

    Happy Wednesday...

  2. They spit in your hair!?!?! How gross and wrong! You poor thing. I'll be praying for a better day!

  3. I just want to let you know that I love you. I just felt that i needed to tell you. If they do drop TOMS would they drop a pair of size 9's? You are so awesome for doing this. And I really cant believe some one spat in your hair!!!! I had a random gross stranger kiss me in Harlem once....that was pretty personal too!
    Any way......I miss you! So ready for you to come to South Africa.
    Have a better day.

  4. I'm so sorry that happened to you- I would feel invaded too. I'm going to say a prayer for you to have a better week!
