I hope you've gotten off to a great start this week! Mine is being quite wonky to be honest. But I'm refusing to be stressed out anymore. If it works out, fine. If it doesn't, that's their business - a customer will be lost for life, and there are other vendors. Anyways, I digress. My weekend was full of activity [again]. Honestly, I really feel like I hardly do anything at all, but my friends and family always joke about me being a social butterfly - so NOT true.
I rushed home after work, so that Cakes and I could head over to my dearest Lin's house to chill. We ate (yummy prawns, snails, spring rolls, samosas), drank (mojitos, champagne, water, etc), chatted about Ebola, and watched a family video. I forgot to take pictures, so just try and imagine it in your head. Meanwhile, I decided that night that I was sick and tired of my twists. I determined that my front edges were being twisted and dry, and so I made up my mind to take them off that night. However, when I got home, I was exhausted and saved that activity for the next day.
I stayed home for the better part of the day. I woke up early and decided to take out my twists while watching TV, cooking, and cleaning. I don't know if I've mentioned here that I ABSOLUTELY ADORE old movies! TCM is one of my favorite channels, and if I lived by myself, I would spend weekends sitting in front of the TV. On Saturday, Girl Happy was on and it starred Elvis Presley. I've never seen what was so sexy about him, but fashi, NOW I know! I can totally understand females going crazy and throwing themselves at him!

Finally, we ended up having dinner at my favorite Thai restaurant, Bangkok. Sooooooooo yummy!!! *After all my healthy eating and exercise during the week, I undid it all over the weekend :(*

Cakes had A LOT of deliveries on Sunday morning, so I was late to church but the topic of discussion was Ebola. Now, I'm not saying people should not have faith, but I was quite irritated when I heard comments like,
"Forget the Ebola helpline number, JESUS is the cure,"
"Enh, I can walk in the middle of people that have Ebola and I won't get it because I'm a Christian"
"All that washing hand this and that, just pray and declare Psalm 91"
*this wasn't the Pastor or speaker o, just some people sitting around me*
After church, Cakes and I had lunch at Cafe Royal and it was sooooooooooo good! I can't believe I've been in Lagos for 2.5 years and had never gone there! The fries were delectable, and my shrimp sandwich was mmm, Mmm, MMM!
Then we went a-visiting Cakes' family, and then my sister-in-law by marriage. Her son made it a point to tell me that he didn't like me, LOL! He's 2 and a half years old, so no worries. Her other son is 7-months old and sooooo adorable!!! Anyways, it was a nice time.
And now, I must allow myself some vanity because I was feeling myself like mad on Sunday. If anybody dares to tell me I looked less than polished enh?!?!?!?!?!?!
|LOL, I apologize in advance for this picture.|

Have a lovely rest of the week my dahlings! Don't forget to wash your hands regularly, and supplement with hand sanitizer if you're in Nigeria. And everywhere else too - it's not a bad habit to have.
