Blogger Overdrive.....

Yes, I know. 4 posts in 3 days. I think I'm back. LOL. This is just a quick one though. I thought I'd share.....

My boo sent me my favorites - Calla Lillies - for Valentine's Day. Aren't they gorgeous? And ain't he a sweetie? They were delivered to me at work, and one of my colleagues amazingly asked, "did he send them ALL the way from Nigeria?". Now I have her thinking Calla Lillies are indigenous to Nigeria...LOL.

Have a great weekend y'all. Love, Live, Life!

Naija Pics

So, it's a little late but here are some Naija pics. I didn't take a whole lot of them so abeg manage these ones. Most are of me and fam. Boring, I know but you asked - a while ago, I know but hey forgive me. I've been busy. ENJOY!


HI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Have you missed me? No, you haven't! But that's okay. Well, since these are my confessions.....I confess that it's not okay that you haven't missed me. Got it? LOL. I've been trying to catch up on blogworld this past week and saw the confession thing going on so I figured I'd use this medium to update you guys on what's been happening with me and all.

About the Nigeria:Heart of Africa Conference taking place in Atlanta at the Georgia Convention Center today and tomorrow (or maybe it's tomorrow and Friday)?

This was news to me. I didn't even know this "project" existed. I saw an ad for it for the first time on TV last night and heard something about it on V103 this morning from the African DJ, Osei. One would think that they would have been advertising it for at least a month or so before the event, right? But not so, cos I've been making an effort to catch up on missed TV lately and I listen to a lot of radio and I haven't seen or heard a peep! Can you believe the website isn't even updated with information about the Conference? Let me not start on how bothersome that is to me.

Anyway, I hope they get a good turnout. And I hope it's well-organized. If anyone goes or know anyone who plans to go, come fill me in on how it went.

Check out the official website here.

I'll be back to update y'all very soon. Peace!
