Adventures, Fun, Friendship & Laughter at the TTB Hangout (Lekki Conservation Center).




Nicole to Clare: mummy lets go. I want to climb that ropy thing!


Isn't Clare beautiful?!


Uyi et moi. Clowning. 


Mother & child. 



Scary af! Trish on the ramp. The chica loves the outdoors so much, she was like a kid in a candy store. She and Uyi took this walk twice! More power to them, you can't pay me to do this a second time.



Uyi & Tiwa

One of the besties

Tiwa, doing the scariest thing she's probably ever done. This was serious fun but Errr, I'm not trying that again anytime soon. 


With my game face on, you wouldn't guess that I just took the scariest walk of my life, with my life flashing before me every millisecond!

The tree house


Attack of the chuku-chuku
Tiwa helping Clare dechukunize her dress. 

Tiwa and I Laughing about God knows what. (Tiwa has got a beautiful soul.)

Uyi & little Nicole 









The tilapia pond

The Coy (hope my spelling is right) fish pond



These coy fish were actually brought from Japan. Can you see just how beautiful they are? They even look very oriental. 






Nicole: uncle Uyi no no no. No no no. No no no don't play with my iPad. (Nicole is so adorable and she cracked us up) 


Buby and Mabel joined us a bit late but better late than never, right?











Parting ways at the car park... We were so exhausted but also very happy. Everyone says we should do this again. I for one agree, we had an amazing day. 

We had frightful moments; walking on the 100 ft-long ramp 100 ft above ground and hearing croaks that weren't coming from frogs. Sharing scary stories while hoping to not be attacked by snakes or something even worse. (There's a crocodile pond but we couldn't get to that end). 

We had unending moments of laughter, thanks to everybody, even the other visitors we got to interact with. 

We had our serious moments; talking about work, career, money, goals and the way forward

Everyone munched on the delightful cupcakes (courtesy of Clare), and of course savory small chops, cold drinks (to soothe our parched throats after the hikes and climbs), and then while leaving we split the TTB cake in large chunks for each one of us.

We had fun feeding the monkeys puffpuff, cakes and icing. those animals are a riot!

We visited with the tortoises. Guess what! One's 68 years old and the other is 97. Can you believe that? Wow!

In all it was a very memorable day and I can't thank everyone who turned up enough (especially Uyi for forfeiting his football March. His team won anyways, thank God!) . At the last minute I was considering cancelling it as it seemed a lot of people either weren't in town or couldn't make it for one reason or the other, but I am soooooooooooooooo happy I swatted away that thought! Yesterday's hangout was more wonderful than I would have ever expected. The memories cannot be replaced or erased. I went home feeling happier than I have in a while. We've got to have another, and another, and then another!

  7. Congrats Favorite. Many more blessings to you n all of us in Jesus name. Amen


    Thanks a bunch T, for such a wonderful and. Amazing picnic. I had sooo much fun, I even forgot my wallet.

    It's been a long while I had so much fun. We gat to do this again. Thelma helped carry Nicole on her back when I got tired. God bless you babe. She was ready to serve, help and do everything without complaints. Thanks.

    @ Uyi: you are such a good sport. He made us laugh with his crazy camera pose, infact my lungs. Nearly burst with laughter. Thanks for carrying Nicole all the way up aand down.

    Climbing that ramp or whatever it's called was like being in a movie. It's scary and much fun.

    @Tiwa: so much sweet things to say about you, Mabel n I even sang a song with her name (Tiwa, Tiwa, Tiwa Tiwa, tiw Tiwa ye ye ye ye)

    Mabel: strikes me as someone who knows what she wants and boy, you can't mess her up. Very much a smart woman, if you ask me.

    Buby ; she caame in a bit late, couldn't explore all the fun sights with us.

    Thelma's Brother-Chuks: God bless his kind heart. That dude is one smart brother. Well spoken, and he helped carry sleepy Nicole all through our "endurance trek" lol.

    The picnic was fun, Thelma, thks for the small chops, it was very nice (gimme contact details).

    In all, Thelma is indeed a generous person, a sweet shy soul, smart, and beautiful insie out.

    Thanks for the baby clothes as well. They fit the kids perfectly. I'm beyond grateful.

    Over and out

  28. I had the time of my life *singing*....It was one of the most exciting outings I've had in a long while. I felt a bit apprehensive meeting these "strangers" considering my shy nature, but I was swept off my feet by the warmth and open arms with which I was welcomed.
    There was none of that awkward silence when strangers meet for the first time, it was fun all the way.
    Chuchu cracked us up the whole time and that Uyi guy ehn, smh! Clare is one of those people that you wish you'd known all your life. Thelma, Ohhh Thelma! Cool, calm and collected somebody and of course, ever the entrepreneur. Maybel is just another life abeg, lmao! Buby was just so cool and Tee's brother is a walking encyclopedia.Can't wait for the next hang out.
    Ah! before I forget, Memphis & Sunshine agreed to head the planning committee for the next hangout. Memphis already picked a date but I'll allow him communicate that info to the house.
    Wishing everybody God's blessings and a great week ahead.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

***
This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and

See how you are serious dey read this story....!

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
