Labor Day Weekend :)

Labor day weekend was fabulous. We had a proper dinner date for the first time since we moved here. 

Not having anyone to babysit, we've had to make do with lunch dates and movies while the munchkins are at daycare. Going out to eat with them is fun, but I don't need to be a mind reader to know that the other diners (who are gracious enough to smile after having had pieces of food thrown at them) and the people who have to clean up after us don't like us very much.

You can imagine how excited I was when Dooshima offered to babysit when she was around. I'm so grateful to her. She's really great with them, and knowing they were in good hands, we were able to  relax and have a great time.

At the movies :D  We saw Sparkle. Whitney Houston is/was such an amazing actress. I doubt that there was a dry eye when she sang "His Eye Is On The Sparrow". 
It was a fun weekend, we enjoyed having Dooshima around. We had a Crawfish feast. Fun times!
Alexis loves Aunty :D
Debola and Dooshima doing justice to the Crawfish 
See the serious looks on their faces? Figuring out how to eat Crawfish is not a joke at all o. Just yesterday, I was tweeting about how I need to learn how to eat Crawfish in public without looking like a village girl. I ended up spending a good chunk of what was supposed to be Study Time watching YouTube videos of how to eat Crawfish. I had a good laugh. You should look them up. Jokes for days...

Thankfully, I didn't laugh and forget why I turned on my laptop in the first place. I was feeling like a good girl, taking my online English Composition quiz which I thought was due  on Thursday  on Monday night. Imagine my relief when I found out it was closing at 8am on Tuesday. I would've been so pained, especially because it was really easy. We had 45 minutes for three attempts and I only needed one attempt and 5 minutes to get a 10/10 score. Yeah, I'm showing off *dusts shoulders off* Lol... School's cool ;)

Thanks for coming by again and again
May your dreams come true


  1. Go gbemi...see iwe moves flying all around your blog...lol

  2. Awww, lovely! Great that you and hubby were able to take some time off to go on a date! And you both look GOOD! :-)

  3. Lovely , it's good to have a "us time " without the kids. All the best with the school stuff, it can be challenging with the kids but sincerely we do better as we age , you know "ogbon agba" is an advantage ...,, lol. Take care and regards to the wee ones

    1. Lol at "ogbon agba"... You're right.
      Thanks dear

  4. mmmm...you are chopping life without me?

    1. Hahaha
      "Chopping the life of my head". It is neccesary o jare.
      We are well, trust that you all are too
      Thanks Sis

  5. oh thats wonderfull, glad you and the hubby got an opportunity to just do you together. Fantastic you have to make arrangements for more of those.

    haven't seen sparkle yet, will though.

    have a great week and keep investing in your marriage by having couple time and maintaining the bond you forge when getting to know each other, through marriage and children. It’s important because pretty soon the children will grow and be off and you don't want to be staring at each other like strangers because you lost what was between you while caring for the children.

    stay blessed.

    1. Thanks for the advice.
      You really should see Sparkle. Great movie!
