REVIEW: Johnny Rockets

In my post yesterday, I mentioned that Cakes and I grabbed lunch at Johnny Rockets on Sunday afternoon. Johnny Rockets is an international food chain, popular for its American fare - BURGERS! They also have milkshakes, sandwiches, chili, amongst other menu items.

Berry Twirly Weekend

Hey baby, hey baby, HEY!

And just like that, the elections are over!!! Oh wait, not quite. We're still not sure as of this moment who won, and there are still State elections coming in 2 weeks. Oh brother, can it all be over already? I'm sick of all the political ads on radio and all over the streets. Anyways, I didn't get to vote - see what had happened was... I never registered. Shame on me! Cakes voted though and I say "BRAVO, BRAVA" to everyone else who did. May there be no rigging and may there be peace throughout the land.

On that note, movement was largely restricted this weekend, so I didn't get up to much. I actually was sick of staying home and couldn't wait to leave the apartment on Sunday. Cakes and I went to The Waterbrook Church yesterday - the sermon was very much needed. I feel like it's been a long time since I got to sit and learn/receive. The main point of the sermon was basically coming [back] to God, instead of worrying about one thing or another. Pastor Mobo said, "WHY WORRY WHEN YOU CAN PRAY?" (Isaiah 41:10; Philippians 4:6-7)

Random Alert: Elevator Habits

Yo yo yo homies yo yo yo!

Yeah, this is kinda outta nowhere, but it's something I think about at least once a day - ELEVATOR HABITS. Why am I thinking about it that often, you ask? No reason - just one of the million thoughts in my head. I wonder what people do in elevators if they are all alone. People like Daks of Third World Profashional Blog take selfies. Someone else whose name I shan't mention prefers to physically attack her brother-in-law, while her sister apparently likes to stand like a statue in elevators.

Berry Cake-filled Weekend

Yo yo,

So I said I didn't have much of a weekend update to post, because I had big big plans for it that didn't happen. On Saturday, I was invited to The House of Lux event, and I had other plans already (my friend's children's birthday party) - by the time we left, Cakes and I were exhausted and just weren't up to it. It's fine anyways because I saw photos and people were glam'd up, and I would have walked in there in denim shorts :p

Then Sunday, I had invites for The Eko Atlantic Beach Tournament, as well as an event for bloggers by Joel Lani Accessories. There was a combination of unfortunate things that caused me to stay home on Sunday. I won't tell you what exactly, but let's just say thank God I can eat food now and keep it in my stomach (TMI?).

Anyways, last week Cakes and his team of talented bakers made WONDERFUL cakes for my friend and her family. The comments ranged from "Wow, my expectations were exceeded!" to "Noooooooo, I don't want to cut the cake. It's too pretty!!!!!!!!"

BUT before I show you THOSE cakes, here are a couple he made the week or two before.

You guys should see me watching Frozen. I actually sing and dance along to all the songs. 

I mean, this cake is sooooooooooo cute!!! I love the colors! I actually commended the customer for ordering a different cake design from the orders Cakes usually gets. 

Okay, the last 4 cakes are the ones for my friend - her children's birthdays are within 2 days of each other, and they had a birthday party on Saturday.

Berry Good Advice: Check your Email!!!

Hey guys,

How are ya? I hope you're prepping for a fun weekend. We'll see how mine goes.

So my family and close friends know this thing about me: I can be VERY forgetful. As in, VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY! I forget a lot of things from faces to names (I need to meet some people 3 or 4 times before I recognize them). I forget event dates - I think I've mentioned here that one day, I got my sisters and cousins to get all dressed up and decked out for this Bridal Show in Atlanta, only for us to get there and I had mixed up the dates :p I forget things Cakes tells me - NOT EVERY TIME O! Because he'll now use this admission against me in a future argument. Anyways, why am I saying this and what does this have to do with checking your emails? 

*I see a text on my phone about goods for me in Oshodi*
Me: Cakes, see this text message. I think it's spam.
Cakes: No it's not. Give me your phone. (he likes to pretend he's Superman) HELLO?! WHOSE NUMBER ARE YOU TRYING TO REACH? WHERE DID YOU GET THIS NUMBER? DON'T CALL THIS NUMBER AGAIN, DO YOU HEAR ME?!
Me: *rolling eyes because Cakes can be extra sometimes*
