About Yesterday, My Birthday: Special Tatafo Report



Una too like gist! Una wan know everything. LOL. First things first. Thank you so much for all the birthday wishes, prayers, text messages and calls. You made feel so loved, I was gonna burst. Yes o!! I’m a July babe. For those who don’t know, yesterday was my birthday. I would have blogged about it but I’m a traditional girl, I like to leave things simple.

I always get so anxious, few days before and on my birthday. I actually don’t do well with birthdays. Am I the only one who gets nervous on her birthday? One time in University, I just ran off because of the stress of throwing a much expected party.LOL. Friends came in the rain and met my absence but still dropped lovely gifts. If you are reading this and were one of them, I’m sorry. I still owe you.

My birthday is always a stern reminder of what I have and I have not achieved. I can be so hard on myself, that  I just get overwhelmed with thoughts, almost to tears. This time I chose to be soooo grateful, not because I have it all, but because I have every reason to appreciate the things I have right now.birthday girl

I am grateful for life and good health. Honestly, I can’t remember when last I went to the hospital except for child birth. I can’t take this for granted.

I am grateful for God’s blessings upon my family. I have got an awesome, good looking, intelligent man. He challenges me all the time. My lovely kids are my heartbeat. I live for these two and more to come.

I am grateful for still having healthy and strong parents. Being so far from them, my prayer has always been for God to keep them alive and strong for me and He’s been doing just that.

I am grateful for my extended family. I’ve great siblings (blood related or not). My in-laws, cousins are a blessing to me. They all make me feel I’m not alone.

I am grateful for this Blog. I started this blog with all doubt in me. But today, I’m so grateful I was resilient enough to start. It’s been doing well as you can see but ermmm please comment. I see the page views and get encouraged by your visits but try and comment na. Ah ah! Even if you don’t have anything to say, just say Hi. LOL. Don’t worry, very soon I’d start showcasing give-aways, If you comment, you are likely to win a gift. Thank you so much for always taking time out to read.

I am grateful for honest, loving friends. You know yourselves. You are my honest few. Who needs a lot of friends when I have you. I am grateful for my beautiful Facebook friends (Honest ones), acquaintances that truly appreciate my person.

I am also grateful for the not-so-friendly friends. How can you hate on a soul this beautiful? *trying to open my chest* LOL. Thank you for making me think highly of myself. It’s so sweet you talk and lose sleep over me. I know, I Love you too.



So I woke up to these beautiful flowers as I opened the door on my birthday. Courtesy my romantic boo.flowers2by huby

Didn’t know how he pulled it off, knowing we were together all through the previous day and as usual I was doing inspector gadget to his every move. Trust me, hubby wasn’t like this. But I’m a hopeless ful romantic and he has caught the bug. And this is the third time. Yes, I keep saying, I’m among the 1% of Nigerian women that love flowers. I appreciate flowers more than Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Please scratch that part, I wasn’t the one that said that. Shut up, shoulder Angel! You ain’t needed now.angel

My point is I won’t pluck them off and use the branches to spank a kid instead. LOL

It was a quiet indoor celebration for me. I insisted on not having a cake because I cannot come and be running upandan to burn calories after eating so much of it. So share the virtual cake with me.

Thank you all so much for taking time to celebrate my TWENTY-THIRD birthday…*Nepa don take light*

Deejay light up candle and remind them why my real age doesn’t marra!


“Make you take sometime to bubble and shuffle’

After all, na hustle and bustle,

Every body wan celebrate and nobody wan talk him age,

so if you just go ask a Lagos mama say, how many years she dey celebrate,

she go holla and holla and shout back at you, “na wetin be your bizness”

You fit celebrate twenty-one today be say the last time na twenty-two,

the next one fit be twenty, so just bubble and shuffle and forget about my age.”


I danced the running man with all my strength to this song while growing up. So now you know I no be small pikin. LOL. Thank you all. Lots of  Love.
