FREE AIRTIME ON ANY NETWORKI didn't expect that we'd have sponsors at our First Anniversary Giveaway cos I felt it's too young and early to start looking for Giveaway Sponsors. Yesterday, after searching Google and reading so much on Giveaways, I realized one year is not too young to chase after sponsors especially those whose items we use in our recipes and all.

For Subsequent Giveaways, God willing, we shall be having their item reviews and Giveaways altogether. If they


Wives Connection Is One Celebrating one year of blogging. To God be all the glory. Though I wanted to blog and just do something about families, women, cooking etc, I didn't know it was going to kick off on that fateful day.

My Mother-In-Law Is Too Close

Hello Aunty Eya,
 I have a little problem that needs advice. It's my mother in law. Whenever she comes around which is often, she doesn't give me time with my husband. When he is seated on the couch, she rushes to sit beside him. When he is alone in the bedroom she goes for a meeting.

Big Brother Africa Consuming My Free Time

Big Bother Africa The ChaseWhat are they really chasing? Is it the Three Hundred Thousand US dollars or themselves? The way the entered the house in pairs makes me feel "The Chase" is loaded with meaning. The show is on and these days I see myself spending almost all my free time on the couch with Big Brother. 

I pray this doesn't affect my blogging, will try as much as possible to update regularly. Wives connection will be one in three days. Late on the night of May 31 in 2012, I remember my daughter encouraging me to just post anything before going to bed. So, I must update until we celebrate her Anniversary. One year Anniversary I hear is very important. "Big Brother, please, stop taking my free time." Lol

Did You Remember Their Day?

HAPPY CHILDREN'S DAY I was ashamed of myself this morning when my girls grabbed me from behind singing happy children's day  to me when I should have done that to them. Anyway, I didn't know they were awake. When I peeped they were still fast asleep.

On a lighter note, let's create/have fun with abbreviations and their meanings. We may not have come across them often on WC but the truth still remains that we see or come across them in our everyday lives. Funny enough, most of us don't even know what they mean and we just skip after we must have cracked our brains out without success.

Everyone was invited; as expected, some were happy and some weren’t.  Some of the attendees& invitees were interviewed. Some said they were happy for her, some prayed for her while some others hurled different insults at her. Some said there was no reason for the celebration and that she shouldn’t even be dressed in
