Easter Rules and Sweets
How was everyone’s Easter? I woke up Sunday morning and was checking my social networks
to see what I missed to wake myself up and I saw someone I follow breaking a very strict rule at church for the 7am service. I wanted to reach through the phone and reprimand her! I guess once you are a mega church usher you are one everywhere including your bed. (YES, I left her a comment letting her know that ISN’T allowed. Don’t judge me.) I ended up serving second service and it was a breeze!
As a West Indian, Easter usually mean Easter bun. For those who don’t know what Easter bun is–it is heaven. It’s a Caribbean delicacy usually eaten with cheddar cheese but I love it all by itself. It is a slice of amazing and the next time you are in a Jamaican restaurant get you some!
So you guys know that I was so excited when I saw the trailer for temptation that I posted about it. I saw the movie on Friday and it did not disappoint! Tyler Perry did his THING! Even the hubs was all up in it and y’all know we don’t do movies a lot (read: EVER) but we made this one happen!
Shoutout to Jurnee Smollett for her amazing performance! And ladies the chocolate in this movie…humuna humuna. Over all it was a really great message about how you can easily get caught out there. Even Mrs. Kim Kardashian did OK, I mean she even had ME giggling and I don’t even rock with the Kardashians like that. I still don’t see what the controversy was about her being in the movie. She did well.
My favorite aspect of the movie was the spirituality part of it all, and the very unexpected ending. I will leave it at that.
I loved every single thing about this movie! If I only get to the movies as rarely as I do, I am glad I got to see this one.
I finally got to see Life Is But A Dream on Sunday (it was a movie weekend!) I really loved it. I loved how raw it was. Y’all know that Beyonce is my girl and I was so happy that she did not disappoint. Blue Ivy is just so adorbs, and as much as I would like to say now she is a REAL person to me, fact of the matter is she’s not. She’s Beyonce. Ain’t nothing normal about that girl.
I was very entertained, especially at the concert scenes? OMG. My husband thinks I am going to lose my mind when we go see her in August, he’s probably right. When we went to see my sister/friend/auntie/bestie Mary J. Blige a few years ago at Radio City I cried my way through the entire concert. I sang, I cried, and I sang some more. Hubs thinks it will be the same with Bey. He may be right.
Do you check your social media first thing in the morning? Have you seen Temptation? What did you think?!
What did you think about the Documentary? Does she seem like more of a “real person” to you?
