Berry and Cakes' Training Conversations

It's been a while since I did one of these. Remember our other conversations in The Car, The Kitchen, and on Foot Massages?

Background: Cakes started taking Karate lessons a few weeks ago, and is doing pretty well. We'll be watching TV and the next thing I'll hear is "HI-YAAAAAAAAAAA!!!" and he's attempting to break the wall or somn random.

*One day, in the middle of the night around 3AM, I wake up to no Cakes in bed. The following morning...*

Berry: Cakes what time did you come back to sleep?
Cakes: Around 5AM.
Berry: Ah ah, what were you doing?
Cakes: I was training.
Berry: Oh wow, okay.

*thinking to myself *

Berry: Awww, Cakes is so dedicated to this stuff. Imagine him practicing in the middle of the night. And I'm such a slacker. I haven't worked out in weeks. I should be more like Cakesy Wakesy.

*on a different day, bragging to friend*

Berry: Ah, Cakes has started Karate o, and he's VERY serious about it. As in, he even does it when he wakes up at night! Fashi, nobody can mess with Cakes!

Time passes and one day, Cakes goes to drop me at my friend's house before going to karate class.

Friend: Cakes, you're going for your class enh? Nice one.
Berry: Ah, he's so serious with it. Even training at odd hours!
Cakes: Huh? What are you talking about?
Berry: Last week now, when you woke up... you said you were training.
Cakes: BUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Is that what you thought I meant? No, I meant I was playing FIFA 15 on the PS4.
Berry: I QUIT. :-|

Eeeek! I haven't posted these in a while. And yet I've been enjoying so many articles. Sorry I kept them to myself. I hope someone finds at least one of these interesting.

REVIEW: Terra Kulture Restaurant

A few weeks ago, Cakes and I headed out to Terra Kulture to watch the Single in Gidi play. We had also purchased Dealdey coupons for 2 meals and intended to use them there. Unfortunately we forgot to print the coupons, but we were hungry and decided to eat anyways.

Berry Trippy Weekend


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 :(

Style Post: Vlisco Hollandais courtesy of TW Magazine

During the TW Fitness Challenge shortly before my wedding, each of the ladies were required to subscribe to TW Magazine for a 1-year period. I used to enjoy waiting for my magazine to get to me and eagerly pored over the different issues. What I didn't pay attention to was the "Letters" section. I mean I read them, but never noticed that there was always a Star Letter that won a prize. Well, once I was told about it, I wrote a letter about the issue with Osas Ighodaro on the cover - and my letter was chosen as the winner in the next issue! I was really excited and couldn't wait to pick my prize, which was 6 yards of Vlisco fabric.

Learn How to Backup Your Blog on Blogger

Hey guys,

This is kinda random but this morning I suddenly remembered that I haven't backed up my blog in a while, and so I got it done within a few minutes. It occurred to me that some of you may have never done it or thought about it before, so I'm posting a short tutorial on how to backup your blog - this is for those whose blogs are on Blogger. But here's a link for those on Wordpress (apparently you can even schedule regular backups!).
