Let's have a great week!

I had a good weekend, I hope you did too! Saturday I got to sleep in, which is always a good thing. TheCount agreed to run errands with me so we were gearing up to go out when his friend called and said he was in the neighborhood and he was going to stop by. We live 45 minutes away, why are you in our neighborhood!? Not only did he invite himself over, he invited himself on our errands. Surprisingly, the boys didn't complain as I took them on a typical errand day. TheCount is a one stop shopper. I'm a where is it on sale, ok that's where I'll go shopper. We went to Baltimore first so I could pick up some more Oyin Handmade products. FriendCount also got some stuff, he couldn't resist the smell. We went down the street to an African shop after that so FriendCount could get some more oils to mix with his shea butter. Then we went to pick up the pottery that my ma, sister, and I painted last week. It is soooooo cute! I have a boatload of pictures to upload, so those will be coming within the next month. Then we had to stop at Walmart because I needed some laundry detergent. From Walmart we went to Super Fresh so I could get some broccoli for .88 a pound and all Boca meat substitute products were $1.50. I couldn't pass that up, those are good meals for lazy days. My last stop was Target, so I could get a bookcase. I think FriendCount enjoyed having people to shop with, because he mostly hangs by himself. He was picking up dishes and toss pillows for his house too. We went and picked up dinner (the boys got Chipotle, I got Cosi- I like that place!) and went home and watched Lakeview Terrace. FriendCount finally went home and I twisted my hair while we watched He's just not that into you (I hated, hated, hated that stupid movie, it made me angry).
I tried to do a wash and go on Saturday with Kinky-Curly Curling Custard- it was a huge no ma'am. My hair looked neglected and was so dang dry by the end of the day. I'll try again next Saturday with a different product.
Sunday I worked the nursery at church, went to see "The Screwtape Letters" and had dinner at Rosa Mexicana with TheCount and my parents. It was a fun day! I picked the dinner location and everybody had such an issue with it.
TheCount: "I don't know why you always want Mexican, you always get the same thing" (cuz I like it you stupid turd)
Ma: "You know your father doesn't like Mexican, so don't tell him where we're going" (I ain't scared of him)
Daddy: "Oh, TheCount's going? Then I'll be there! Anywhere TheCount is, that's where I'll be!" (I only wish I was joking)
Dinner was sooooo good! I ordered chips and salsa and sweet potato fries and I shared my parent's rice and beans. Even my "I don't like Mexican food" daddy was talking about how good his food was. My ma was dancing in her seat, and TheCount and I killed their rice and beans, they ended up bring us some more and we just passed it around the table so everybody could have some. At one point I took my basket of chips of the table and was hiding them in my lap because everybody kept eating them all. The waiter looked at me like I was crazy and put a fresh basket out on the table. I'll admit it, I have a food hoarding problem. I was just scared I would be hungry! Lately I've found myself in the kitchen sneaking snacks at 1 am. Not a good look!
How was your weekend?

Lol @ you hoarding food & sneaking snacks! What's really going on??? Lol! I LOOOOVE Mexican!! & I love it when I can convert the skeptical about it!!! YESSSSS! I usually like holes in the wall, though. CLEAN holes in the wall! I don't want dirty ice or rat feces!! I didn't like He's Just Not that Into You either and have yet to find a black person who did. I'm sure there are tons of black people who also find that film foolish. That's so nice of you to let FriendCount tag along. Poor little lonely thing! Lol. I like that he got stuff, too. That's cute.

I love mexican. Unfortunately I won't be eating it until Feb 1st! I think that's the first place I will go and I won't care where other people want to eat. I'm gonna have to figure out how to make myself a mexican meal here with soy cheese and minus the meat. I don't like black beans so it's gonna be a battle. It took me a while once I had a certain hair length to be able to do a wash n go. You should look up some shingling videos b/c it may help your wash n go look better.
