A Day in the Life of Social Distancing

This blog post is inspired by the one I saw on Cupcakes & Cashmere. I thought it would be pretty interesting to share what a typical weekday has been like for Coco and I in the past few weeks. Today is Day 24 since we started actively staying home. As I mentioned in this post, a teacher in her daycare was positive for the virus and her daycare was shut down for two weeks. While they reopened after the mandatory quarantine period, I did not feel very comfortable with sending her back - especially since the governor in our state had shut down public schools already.

Behind the Scenes of Mommy Oyoyo Podcast

Hi there!

If you've been following me for a little bit now, then you know that I have a podcast called the Mommy Oyoyo podcast. I started the podcast on Anchor about 9 months ago and it's been slowly growing a loyal following. I wish it would grow much faster though, but I thank God for progress! Anyway, an old friend of mine who I've featured on the blog before (see here) filmed a Behind the Scenes project with me and I'm sharing it today for your viewing pleasure.

It's Been a While

Hi there!

I know it's been a long long time. To be honest, I think my blogging days may be over - no matter what Vera says :p. I really haven't felt motivated to blog at all. At least not until today. These are trying times, with the global coronavirus pandemic shutting down normal day-to-day life. If you listen to the Mommy Oyoyo podcast (which I have been keeping up with), then you know that Coco has been under quarantine since a teacher in her school tested positive for the virus. Today is actually the last day of her quarantine according to the Department of Public Health. The plan was to send her back to daycare tomorrow, but at this rate, I may have to keep her at home.

PhotoWall - Wall Art Review (With Discount Code)

I have lived in my parents' house since I moved back to the US about 4 years ago. I have been very blessed to have their support, not only with accommodation, but also with helping me out with Coco. I am constantly reminded how lucky and blessed I am, and I don't take their hospitality and love for granted.

That being said, coming from having my own apartment while I lived in Lagos, to living less independently has been... interesting. The perk of not having to pay rent, is of course AMAZING! And again, having Coco's grandparents around most of the time, is a HUGE help to me. But sometimes, I do miss my independence and having my own space and domain.

Girls Trip to Las Vegas - A Photo Story

Hey y'all,

This post is a long time coming! I originally planned to put up these photos from our girls trip to Las Vegas late last year. Unfortunately, I just got really tired and could not bring myself to blog at all. I was still active on social media (mostly Instagram), and putting a lot of efforts into my podcast (Mommy Oyoyo). Admittedly, I also toyed with the idea of shutting down the blog - I know you're rolling your eyes at me, because it's not the first, second or third time I've thought about it. Anyway, as you can tell, the blog has not been shut down, LOL.

I hope you enjoy the photos. Scroll down to the end for a little note on why I went to Las Vegas, and what we got up to while there.

Yoohoo!

Hi everyone!

I'm just here to tell you that I'm alive. And mostly well. And I will be back soon. And I'm also sorry for just disappearing like that without notice.


See ya in a bit!
