How was your looooooooong holiday weekend (Nigerian readers)? Or your regular weekend for those who didn't have a holiday?
Soooo, here I am on Monday night, exhausted out of my mind. If you follow me on Instagram you already know why. And if not, it's because like I mentioned in this post, I was heading to Abuja for the weekend. What I didn't say was that Cakes and I were driving from Lagos! Yup, a 10-hour drive to attend my uncle's birthday party and deliver the 34 cakes they ordered. 33 small cakes for each table, and 1 large cake for the celebrant - unfortunately, I forgot to take a photo of all the cakes piled up in the car :(
Anyway, on Friday morning very early, we set out and started making our way. The roads are terrible in some spots, manageable in some, and nice in a few. Can we just have good roads all over Nigeria? Is that so much to ask? Meanwhile, we got stopped at almost all the security check points - no idea why. But all our papers are in order, so no worries :) While Cakes drove, I played with makeup :p
|I have never seen plantain fried whole or halved. It was really good though, and don't get me started on the sweet potatoes!!!|
When we got to Abuja, we were understandably very tired. We were able to get recommendations for shawarma via Instagram, and headed to Chicken Capitol at night to get food - all I know is I miss those fries!!! The shawarma itself was aight.
On Sunday we didn't do much apart from going swimming, getting massages and a very expensive pedicure at Tamanuel Spa again, and seeing old friends.

Thanks be to God for a safe journey, and to Cakes for driving, and to my uncle and aunt for hosting us. I hope I'm done with road trips for the year - this chick is tired abeg.
Have a lovely week everyone!
