***PICTURE OVERLOAD ALERT: Post contains a billion pictures. Just warning you ahead of time…***

The traditional wedding was about nine weeks ago… As expected, I have actually forgotten some stuff that went down but hey I will try.

That is my way of saying welcome welcome… Lol.

This post is totally about my Booski Dumebi. Part one and two all her… Of course you know I will definitely find a way to include my own face na…

So the traditional marriage…


I did a road trip to Asaba and I sorta enjoyed it although I got in a tad later than I expected and Dumebi kept following me with phonecalls. Ugh. Crazy girl.

I love suya so I always buy on road trips…


Dumebi made me so her makeup after all my protesting that I had gotten rusty ooo.


Anyways, i dusted my box, read my books a bit just before I left for Asaba


The drama started as soon as I walked into the Ononye mansion…

Ah, Dumebi’s family has drama sha. Tony, God will give you grace to handle Dumebi’s drama biko. Choi!!! As soon as Dumebi walked me into the sprawling compound, all her brothers displaced her and ushered me very regally in. I mean, the only thing they didn’t do was to lift me up the ground. Looool. I met her mom for the first time ever and it sure didn’t feel that way cos we have a phone relationship going already. Her mom who is so super pretty (DARK N OH SO LOVELY) with the loveliest toothy smile ever kept teasing me and my hips.


I was on flats that day and she kept saying she had never seen me on flats and I kept saying she had NEVER seen me before lol. I mean, you know how you have seen so much pictures of people and you feel like you know them. Dumebi’s mom is just bristling with fun. Now you know where my Booski gets all her energy from. And she can cook eh, chai!!! I had the BEST pepper soup ever and ofe nsala.


Abeg that pepper soup was born again. You know how people make pepper and water and have the nerve to call it Pepper soup? This one was the real PEPPER SOUP with the right amount of pepper and plenty fish.


Ah, God bless you ma for that brekkie jor. Infact, I ate so much in the few hours I was in Asaba. Delicacies didn’t stop flowing from her kitchen, I doubt I even ate the wedding food as I was feeling Momsie’ food too much. And her mom was so open to me. You know how Yoruba people can like to put barriers and stuff when there is a major occasion even when they don’t have to. Not Dumebi’s mom. She made me feel so special and welcome and most importantly, AT HOME!!!


She even insisted that I had to be the One in charge of the monies because she trusts me. Hehehehe. That was such a huge statement cos we were not talking small money. You know my Booski’s father is a Politician Doctor lol.

Anyways, the wedding was on Saturday and I got in Friday. We first had to go to the ‘village’ for the ceremony first and then return to her father’s house for the reception. I say ‘Village’ cos it was like a ten minute drive from town. Before leaving for the village though, we had a photo session… Enjoy some pictures

20130824_113418 I love luv this pic

It rained the night before. Heavy rain and so it affected the reception set-up some. See Dumebi waking up and giving orders to her brothers to do this and that FROM THE WINDOW ooo. Very naughty girl.

Dumebi is the only girl with three boys and so she can get away with murder lol. Lucky for us, the venue was fixed way before the reception started and the rains didn’t start again till the event was over.

Oh lemme mention Dumebi’s daddy the Doctor.


First thing Doc said when he saw me was ‘So you really made a First class?’ Lol. To him, that was the koko ooo. Like I was surprised. First class was all he was interested in. got me a nod and a back slap of approval from our one and only DADABOOOOO lol.

first class This was something Dumebi said to me December last year. True true that!!!

Because I have done a picture Overload on this Post, you should check back tomorrow for the part 2…

I will schedule it for noon.

Keep a date…




I should totally be divided into THREE equal parts at work!!! Haba!!! This morning, I felt that way. And I will be away Thursday and Friday. I feel for them already. Lol. this is my way of saying I am a very USEFUL staff here ooo. I really really love my Job and by extension, my service year…


Recall yesterday that I said I was going to get my Maid of Honor dress at COB. Well, I got to the market and the market was a graveyard. i was so pissed haba. They say they are crowning another Iyaloja since Tinubu’s momma had passed. I may be wrong but I don’t think that is a godd reason to SHUT THE ENTIRE MARKETS DOWN!!!! Hiss. I so grumbled all the way home. Lol


I love how when i decide to do a post on something, the Universe just gives me the right pictures to buttress it. I have a screen shot for my VIRGINITY post already. A real one from a  convo I was involved in. I have to color the names of participants out if not they will kill me lol. You should watch out for that post. hope you have read Inthe’s post here

Then Marriage by the BOOK has done a pre-post which she titled

Hello Virgins, are you ready???

I like I Like this revolution we are starting. Like Inthe said, people don’t just need the Bible to show them to abstain, they actually also need encouragement cos it seems like the Virgins are getting the shorter end of the stick. Like MbdB said, WE NEED TO GO PUBLIC WITH THIS ONE… #NoShameInMyGame

This Blogging is so cool. Especially as we get to rep Christ!!!

Christian Bloggers ARISE & UNITE…


Imagine if I didn’t have a backup of all my pictures. I would not have been able to spam you with these pictures now lol
