Apparently, I tell everyone who cares to listen that my friend, Uju, is a doctor. And I cannot help it. I am so, so proud of her. She is a fighter. Anyway, Uju’s birthday was this past Thursday, and we asked her several times what she wanted to do and she said nothing. So I decided to take matters into my own hands and tell the girls that we should all show up at Uju’s house on Saturday, unannounced. Well, I told her that I’ll be coming, but I didn’t tell her about the remaining 4.5 girls.
It was Uju, me, Funmie, Solachi, Ibukun, Tim, and Lauren. Lauren is Solachi’s nine month old baby, which is why we were 6.5 girls instead of just 6. All we did was eat, talk, laugh, reminisce, and make fun of each other’s exes. So yeah, it was a very eventful day. There were lots to eat and drink. Funmie, our personal chef was there to keep us happy. Somehow, we didn’t really take pictures of ourselves, but Lauren (our celebrity guest, by the way) was all over the pictures. I think she thought it was her birthday. Uju’s baby brother was there, too, and I fear that he may never look at us the same way again. I think he thinks we’re crazy.
This must be a strange birthday post seeing as no pictures of the birthday girl were taken. Well, I did take pictures of her, but she doesn’t want them up because she was not camera-ready. She had bendy rollers in her head, which is partially our fault as we did not announce our visit. But all hope isn’t lost. Last year, I did blog about her, so if you’re interested, you can read about my gorgeous friend, Uju HERE.
It was so much fun hanging out with everyone because it had been so long since we all got together. That’s what happens when you grow up and your priorities change. I hope we get to hang out more often. Happy birthday again, Uju.
P.S. Adaobi, you see what you’re missing in America?? When are you coming to join us?
