Visiting Washington DC Part 2

Our trip to Washington DC over the past weekend was really fun, but very short. We were literally in DC for just 30 hours, so you can imagine how little sleep we got on both Friday and Saturday nights. It was all in good fun though, and we're very happy for our friend and his lovely new wife.

Visiting Washington DC Weekend - Part 1

Hey y'all,

How was your weekend? Mine was good but very very tiring. The fact that I have this post up means that I love you guys, and I wanted something for you to read - because all I want to do is SLEEP! If you saw my Snapchat story over the weekend, you know that we barely got any sleep between Friday night and Sunday morning. In fact, we slept for 3 hours on Saturday night after my friend's wedding as we had to be out of the hotel by 4:30am to catch our early flight back to Atlanta. I'm going to break up this post into 2 parts because I have too many photos... what else is new?

BERRY VLOG: 1 Million Blog Views

1 million blog views!!! One whole million! 7 digits! I wish every view came with a dollar - then I'd REALLY be celebrating :p But yup, the blog crossed 1 million views last week. It's something I had been looking forward to since the beginning of the year. I thought it would come sooner, but thank God we have reached this milestone.

My Favorite Childhood Activities

Have you seen my childhood?! (if you scroll through this post, you'll see some photos) When I think about my childhood memories, they bring a smile to not only my face, but my heart. I had a wonderful one, and I'm so grateful to my parents. We may not have had the conventional Nigerian lifestyle, but I would NEVER trade it for anything!

Why am I going on about my childhood, you ask? Well, last week I was on Twitter (are you following me yet?) and I saw the following tweet from Kachi, who blogs here.
