My Life

It’s my BIRFDAY!!!

One score and four years ago, my mother brought forth on this planet, a new daughter, conceived in awesomeness and dedicated to the proposition that she shall be IG beyond means.

What this means is… IT’S MY BIRFDAY!!! *pops bottles of Baileys* *does jig* *gets sprayed with money* (you know how us Naijas do).

I spent this weekend in New York City celebrating with my BFFs. We did some girly stuff (spa day and shopping), and we are gluttons so we ate (a lot). Shoutouts to Cafe Veg in Harlem and Lola’s in SoHo. I had a fantastic time, and kicked it hard. And I got surprised with a dinner with 5 college friends. I felt hella special, and it has already been the best birthday EVER for me! So thanks, Iggy and Kindred!!

The Red Velvet Cake they got me. DELISH! But umm… should I be offended that they only put 3 candles on it? I mean, what are they tryna say?? hehe I keed!


Oh and umm… *cough cough* I love gifts (although folks be trying to pull that whole combination Christmas-birthday gift. BOOOOOO!!!). Sooo um blog fam, what did you guys get me for the day of celebration?

    Happy Birthday – unfortunately I’d have to say that the Aquarius folks trump the Caps…

    Enjoy your day though and don’t let that hawk catch you slippin’…

    Hey…you just have the good fortune to have a birfday right when the credit card bills come in, so…your present is a receipt showing a Visa payment!

    Happy birfday (you want me to have good credit, right?)
