How was your weekend?! Mine was FULL!!! From Friday up until yesterday, it was out-and-about for me. I had fun though, and got home in enough time to not feel exhausted.
On Friday, Cakes and I went out on a double date. Honestly, this is something I had wanted to for a loooooong time. I mentioned it casually to Cakes a few times since we started dating, but nothing ever happened. I'm very happy that his friend, Kash (whose wedding we went to in Abeokuta - remember our Olumo Rock adventure), brought up the idea. We planned to have a couples date night with dinner, drinks, maybe a movie and dancing. We were able to have drinks/dinner, and a movie. Maybe next time we'll go dancing.
We headed to The Palms Mall and ate at Double Four Restaurant. I think I have eaten there once before, but I don't quite remember.
|I got a mojito. I wasn't sure about the color though. Aren't mojitos more green than anything?|
|I really like this photo minus Cakes' face. What was he saying?|
I got these shoes from The 5K Shop (everything is N5k or below), and I LOVE THEM. I've actually worn them everyday since Friday (hides face).
On Saturday morning, I woke up bright and early to get my hair done. I wanted to get big havana twists, but what I ended up with, I actually hate. So no pictures for the next 1 month!!! I like big, full hair. How can I use 4 packs of Marley hair, and afterwards, the twists are thin?!?!?!?
Anyways, after the hair was done, I slept for 4 hours cos Cakes and I got home late the previous night. I woke up just in time to shower and head out for a late lunch with my friends at the newest, hottest restaurant in town, R.S.V.P. I only went there for the burger, because my friends said they have the best burger in Lagos. My friends got there before me and ordered appetizers - some Burrata (which I refused to touch because, CHEESE and RAW TOMATOES).
They also ordered a Chicken thingy (can't remember the name), and this one I loved!
Now... the burger.
I was NOT impressed. It wasn't as juicy as I was expecting, and it was quite salty too. I actually had to pour a bunch of ketchup on, because I really wasn't feeling the burger.
The owner of the restaurant stopped by our table and offered us Chocolate Vodka shots - LOVED THEM!!! Yes, I had 2, sue me :)
My friends ordered Bread Pudding and ice cream for dessert.
FUN FACT: Ran into Bella Naija herself (Uche Pedro) at the restaurant. We've never met before, but she came over to our table, said hi, and was really warm. She's such a lovely lovely person.
After our late lunch, it was almost 8pm and Cakes and I were heading to a Salsa Class, courtesy of the Couples Group at church.
On Sunday, there was a mini concert at the teenage church. The point was to show teenagers that you can praise God using any genre of music. I think they enjoyed themselves for the most part. I know I certainly did.

From there, we went to my one-time best friend's house for his birthday. I've known him since Nursery/Primary school and we've always been friends. I meant to take pictures of the food, but you know how sometimes you're maddeningly hungry? Yeah, that's what happened. Sawry.
After all the food I've eaten this weekend, I shouldn't wonder why the weight isn't dropping :( I'm still exercising at least 5 days a week, but the scale is not showing any progress at all. I might really have to do a detox for 3 to 5 days or 1 whole month!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What do you think?
Have a pretty week my darlings!!!
