What I Did This Weekend

Apart from being sick, attempting to celebrate Cakes and I's 6-month anniversary, and disowning former cousins, my weekend was full of adventure!!!

Okay, not adventure, but activities. It's no wonder, my body crashed and I mostly stayed home sick on Monday. Anyways, without much more talking, here's how my weekend played out...

Thank youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu everyone who wished Cakes and I a Happy 6-Months Anniversary. I thank you for your kind words, well wishes and prayers. May God bless you with love, joy, grace and peace, Amen! So Cakes and I had planned to have a dinner date for our anniversary celebration. Actually, I thought there was supposed to be a couples massage in there as well,  but your boy didn't say anything about it so I fashied. I rushed home after work so that we could relax and chill a little bit, before heading out. How about there was maddening traffic?!?!?! I didn't get home until maybe 5:30pm. And then guess who had just eaten???? Yes - Cakes. Seriously?! He had decided it was a fun time to cook stew and rice, and ate at 5pm. I knew not to even bother anymore because he gets full very easily, and there was no way I was going to let us waste money at any restaurant. We decided we'd make it a lunch celebration for Sunday. I eventually ate at 7 or so, and we stayed home. Well, I stayed home. He had to be at the bakery at 1am.

*Sorry, no pictures to share since we didn't go out, but enjoy this sewing machine cake Cakes made*

Hair, hair, and more hair activites filled my day! As noted, I planned to attend the Naturals In The City, as well as the Locs Appreciaton Day events. I actually tried to go to the Midas Naturals one on the Mainland, but Cakes' delivery was in another direction and he needed to run other errands. So I followed him on his delivery run, and then he dropped me off at the NITC8 event. I had a very nice time meeting up with other naturalistas and being taller than the other African Naturalistas ladies (thanks to my 6 or 7-inch heels). I won a prize during the presentation sessions!!! Yup, a free hair styling session with Kemi Lewis, who must think I'm stalking her at this point :p
eBunite of African Naturalistas

She's soooooooooo short, and I'm reeeeeeeeally tall

Had to get down to her level :p

Ms. Kemi and I

Don't mind Atilola (Madam African Naturalistas). She's trying to point out that I'm naughty. 

And I'm trying to point out that she's SHORTER than me
But I can see over their heads though. So obviously...

 I left around 5 maybe. The rain was just coming down in torrents at this point, and we still needed to go to the Locs event. When we got there, there were huge puddles all over the place and I was being my aje-butter self, so guess what... Cakes actually carried me on his back, on the main road so that I wouldn't have to get my feet wet. I promise I didn't ask him to carry me - he volunteered. Isn't he so gallant?!?!?!?

Madam Locitude. She put the whole event together :)

Look who I met! Ms. Wana Wana of Inspiration FM

From there, we stopped by for a little bit at Bogobiri. Our friend, Bemyoda, had a gig and it was going to be a night full of fun performances. We stayed for 30 minutes before the whole day of activities caught up with us, so we left and headed home to crash.

Well, I would like to tell you I went to church and had a fun day at the Thanksgiving service, but somebody thought it was a wise idea to deliver ALL the cakes before service. How about we got there at 11:45 and church was over at 12pm? We just gave offering and headed to Cakes' cousin's house for her baby's dedication party. But that was not before I ran into Bovi!!!!!!!!!! He's currently my fave Nigerian comedian and he graciously agreed to take pictures with me, even though he was rushing off to meet people.

Done my usual light makeup in the car

What's the plural of a selfie? Ussie? Well, Berry and Cakes selfie

It's Boviiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

Yay, can I fly away with you Bovi? No? Oh, fine!
After the dedication, we canceled our anniversary celebration lunch because we were both full and heading to my friend's house anyways. We got there and Cakes played with her 3-month old baby the whole time! My friend was impressed because her husband is the only guy that's held the baby for longer than a few minutes. Cakes can't wait for us to have his twin daughters *insert blank face* :-|

From there, we went back to Eko Hotel for Basketmouth's show. We got there late and spent 30 minutes parking, trekking all the loooooooooong way to the hall and finding seats together. Bovi hosted the show and he's always funny to me. I caught Buchi, another comedian from Uganda or was it Kenya, Praiz, and finally Basketmouth. Twas aight. We left early - hunger, my feeling sick again, and fatigue. We stopped somewhere to get yucky shawarma and headed home.

I really like my dress. This is the one my tailor took hostage!!!

And that was the end of my weekend. Next weekend should be quieter, and hopefully our inverter will be back in the house. There is no reason why anyone should live without 24-hour electricity!!!

I need chicken pepper soup oooooooooooooooooooo! What will it take for me to get some?

Have a berryliciously pretty week, you berry hawt person, you!
