Berry Pretty Salsa Weekend


How's it going? How'd your weekend go? What'd you do? Who'd you see? What'd you eat? What'd you wear? Tell me, I'm listening... well, reading.

My weekend was pretty for the most part - we had a date night, courtesy of a group at church!

Berry and Cakes. Don't we look nice? I think we do :)

Friday was - Friday. I'd rather forget about Friday.

On Saturday morning, I woke up bright and early, showered, got dressed and proceeded to wait for Cakes to come back with my car (the other car was at the bakery) so I could head out to church for a women's breakfast meeting. As in, I had looked forward to it all week long. The program was going to be from 9am to 12pm. So there I was, all dressed up and ready to go.


I gave up and undressed. Cakes came back at about 11am *insert angry straight face here* :-|

Well, I was understandably annoyed and he went back out to make more cake deliveries. In my annoyance I went on a domestic chores frenzy (yes, I'm weird like that - sometimes when I'm angry I do the dishes or wash the shower stall). This time I did laundry and cooked :)

Anyways, a few hours later, Cakes was back and we got ready for another church event - the main highlight of my weekend. The Connect Team and The Waterbrook had organized a date night for married couples. The venue was Primi Piatti in Lekki, and it was a very fun evening of games, chatting, food, a discussion on Finances in Marriage, and ended with a salsa lesson!

For someone who laughs a lot, he just refuses to smile properly in front of the camera!!!

After our photo ops, we headed back inside to get started with the event.

There all these model boats all over the restaurant. Apparently it's owned by Tony Prest, and he's into boats and things. I've seen ads for Tony Prest Cruise Dinners before but every time I've tried to get more info, it leads to nothing. If you know Mr. Prest, please tell him our anniversary is coming next month o - a dinner thingy on his boat would be awesome :D

Isn't the candleholder nifty? Recycling is way cool!
 The drinks and food were pretty good. Since we had a predetermined menu, I didn't get to the see the prices, so I can't say whether the food is worth the money. But I enjoyed my prawns sha. I just wish that instead of the chef to tell me "Yes, the prawns are plenty," he would have told me how many to expect (hint hint, THREE is NOT plenty).

Cakes ordered the chicken, which came on this heart-shaped board :p

And after eating, the dancing began! No pictures of Cakes and I, but if you follow mywaterbrook on Instagram, there's video with us in the background.

All I know is that I want to learn Salsa properly. Let's all pray for healing in Cakes' knee, so that he won't have any excuse to turn me down. :D

Sunday was another service at church with the teenagers. The sermon centered on Tim Cook and his coming out, while adding that it was a gift from God. Sorry o, Mr. Cook, the Bible doesn't say that. It was an interesting service anyways.

After church was over, we went to Sweet Kiwi (it's a frozen yogurt place) because of the maddening Lagos heat, then headed home and that was it for the weekend!!!

Have a wonderful week this week!

Muah muah!
