About Last Weekend: Girlfriends Are Forever (Lots Of Pictures!)

Left to right: Funmie, Tim, Solachi, Me, and Ibukun

This past weekend, I finally got to hang out with my girls. You may disagree with me, but I believe that having good friends is essential. We had been talking about hanging out for like over a year, but we finally got around and did it. Before we hung out, our friend, Tim fell ill and that scared the pants off of us. I don't have the words to say how happy I was to be sitting across from Tim. Our date was set for 7pm. We were supposed to get dinner at TGIF and then go watch 'This Is Where Continue Reading

George Clooney And Amal Alamuddin Need A Lesson On Weddings

George Clooney and Alma Alamuddin

It's been called the "wedding of the year" for good reason. The most eligible bachelor - who has also openly stated that he doesn't ever want to be married - actually met a woman that he couldn't leave. Their wedding was in Venice this past weekend with about 90 guests. Amal looked absolutely beautiful in all her dresses (perhaps a separate post about her outfits), and George Clooney wore custon Georgia Armani. Yes, he looked good, but it was all about the bride.   That being Continue Reading

20 Random Facts About Me (Tagged By Sisi Yemmie)


Darling Sisi Yemmie did the 20 random facts about me tag and she tagged me. Who am I to not deliver? I've done tags before, but it's been so long since I last did one. Sisi Yemmie, thank you for the tag, and whatever I write here, know that you asked for it. 1.  I've been keeping a big secret from you, Sweet Potatoes. But I have decided that I will tell it before the end of the year. I'm tired of keeping it. No, I will not give hints! 2.  I'm an undercover rebel. Sometimes, my only Continue Reading

iCook: Pasta With Johnsonville Smoked Brats (Fall Comfort Food)

Really up close and personal: Pasta With Johnsonville Smoked Brats.

What kind of food do you think of when you hear fall comfort food? I think of cheese, soup, tomatoes, maybe bread, but all definitely warm. Or hot. I blogged about using Johnsonville sausages before, but in that post, I cook some [fried] stew with sausages, instead of the more traditional goat meat, beef, or chicken. And in that post, I used the Andouille sausage instead. Well, it's a new day, and fall is a-coming. My original thought was to cook some hearty vegetable soup and switch out the Continue Reading

It’s Friday, But Thank Goodness It’s Thursday!


Did you watch television yesterday? No, really, did you??? Specifically, did you watch abc at 9:00 PM --- or 8:00 PM, if you're about that life? Yesterday was fire on abc. It started with Grey's Anatomy at 8:00 PM. I can't tell you how great the show is because I don't follow it. I know it's great, and I know the general story line, but I have missed so much of it that I don't know how to start it now. But at 9:00 PM, my BFF Kerry Washington came back as Olivia Pope on Scandal. I'm Continue Reading

Dear Kate, At The Very Least, Let Me Model Your Underwear


I've been meaning to blog about this since I read it last month, then a couple days passed, but according to my calender, it's been a whole month. No idea how that happened. It's about the Dear Kate underwears, and if you know anything about me, you know I love underwears. My regular stay-at-home outfit is a t-shirt, an underwear, and no bra. Read my underwear-related posts here. Anyway, Dear Kate did the unthinkable. They recruited real women to be the models in their new lookbook for their Continue Reading

About Last Weekend: I Was So Lazy!

We were waiting for our table at Chili's

Happy Monday, Sweet Potatoes! I don't know what happened to me this past week, but I was so flipping lazy. I literally slept for most of the time. I'd wake up in the morning, eat breakfast, and go back to bed. Before I know what's going on, it's past 3:00 PM. That was how my week went. I can't tell you what I accomplished. And the irony is that I had so much to do. Instead of doing anything, I'd think f all I had to do and my solution would be to go back to bed. It was like why do today what Continue Reading

Do They Look Alike … Or Am I Tripping?


The other day I was watching television and this Black guy was on it talking about the Ravens game. I did not hear a word he said. As soon as I saw his face, all I thought about was the chocolate M&Ms. She's female, but she's still brown and bald ... and she wears glasses, too. Could they be related? I need to contact M&M's to tell them that I found the brown M&M's brother. Maybe now Geico will insure her? I watch a lot of commercials (and enjoy them). Can you tell? P.S. I Continue Reading

Have You Seen Half Of A Yellow Sun?

Thandie Newton (41) and Anika Noni Rose (42). Beautiful!

So last week, we heard on Twitter that Half Of A Yellow Sun is now available on Starz. We watched it immediately. I haven't read the book yet, but it's been sitting in my bookshelf for years. My mom even took it and read it before me. She loved it. I can't say for sure why I haven't read the book. I think it's partly because I know that it's about the Biafran war, and I am afraid to confront the truth, even if it's just in a fictional novel. I'm a huge fan of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and I Continue Reading

About The Nigerian Woman In The Leaked Sex Tape


Last week on Nigerian Twitter, it was all about the leaked sex tape featuring a Nigerian woman. Allegedly, she's a married woman, a mother of five children, and a Registered Nurse in the DMV area, and the man whose penis she's sucking and who she's sexing doggy style is an African-American man who works as a janitor --- and is not her husband. I don't know how popular this story is off Twitter, but I live in the DMV area, so due to geographical location, the story is hot off Twitter here. Continue Reading
