The Backyard Lagos – Review

Hey guys!

It’s been a long minute, right? Seems like we were gone till November, no? We have no legit excuse for our little disappearing act but let’s just say life has been overwhelming, in spite of that, here we are!!!

Thankful for good health and life, we hit the streets again.

The backyard Lagos has been on our “to go” places for a while but somehow it just never happened. Maybe the name made us believe we could just access it whenever, but reality hit and it was a struggle finding the free time to make this happen.

But then, look at God!

He made a way and we found the time to embark on this long-postponed visit. We started off a bit skeptical because a previous visit to one of our ‘to go’ popular places turned out an entire let down as the food was ridiculously poor and our fuel spent was non-refundable. So yeah, you see why we were a bit nervy -There’s no money to waste please.

Delightfully dressed down in denim dresses (see what we did with the letter ‘D’ there?) sourced directly from our store – oh, you don’t know we have a store?! Shame. Please keep up and check it out here – We opted for the simple, casual look to easily blend in and be as comfortable as possible. By the way, our outfits are very very affordable. You really should check them out Here. 

Locating “the backyard” was pretty easy thanks to google maps. Our stomachs seemed to scream with excitement soon as we got there and we rushed for the food menu faster than you pull out your cash from a dispensing ATM. After going through the menu we both decided to go with TBY’s chicken burger and Chapman.

The item prices weren’t over the top. With an average of N6,500/7,000 you’ll get good food and a drink.

Guess the surprise guys? We did not have to wait for years for the food to arrive. In fact we were a little shook by how fast it came and the fact that it was sooooo goood. (Major points here!)

The burger was very juicy and yummy. We absolutely loved it. Tosin ordered wedges and it was really one of the best wedges we’ve had in Lagos. (Please we’ve not been everywhere yet, if your wedges are better, invite us and we’ll come)

Having said all that, it’s one thing to have good food and it’s another to have ambience. The backyard actually nailed both.

Overall it was a really good day and we will totally visit again! Money well spent.

Did you know we own a store? Have you patronized us yet? Ever been to The Backyard Lagos? Any other cool restaurant recommendations? Share with us below.

August

Hey guys!

How is it going?

So we obviously have not been taking the blog seriously and we are sure most of you are like it’s supposed to be life with two tees, two sisters but somehow one of them disappeared! LOL

Don’t worry guys! She’s back!

What were we up to in August???

– I was officially done with housemanship/housejob. I blogged about my experience here and Medicine in Nigeria.

– My friends and I celebrated Kemi’s birthday just before I left Ibadan. We all decided to sew Ankara tops, go out, eat good food and take pictures. We are so extra! I love it.

Kemi is the second on the right btw

– Titi’s bridal shower happened and it was great because the decor and cupcake toppers were DIY inspired. Shalla to those that thought and said it’d be trash. How you feeling now? SHADE. We blogged about the DIY cupcake toppers, you can read it here.

Titi got married!!!! It was such a busy but fun day. Started off with her her traditional marriage ceremony in the morning, then church wedding and the reception to end it all. The party was still on till 10pm. Only a Lagos wedding ends at 10pm or even later.


– I read two very interesting books in August. Shopaholic & Sister – Sophie Kinsella and Just One Look -Harlan Coben. I will most definitely be writing a review on Just One Look. It was a very intriguing book.

Titi is coming back! Yes! She’ll be blogging about her wedding prep and tips on dealing with the pre wedding stress. Watch out for that! We’re so excited! Omgosh

 

– We have decided to take our social media platforms seriously because we all know the power of social media! So please follow us on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook!

Follow so you can be updated on the exciting new posts we have planned for you guys!

Meanwhile, What do you want us to blog about?  Feel free to comment below.

Happy new year | 2016 

Hey beautiful people! Happy new year!! I’m very excited for 2016. After church last night, I had this intense stomach pain, nausea and discomfort for a while (Ulcer problems). I immediately went to take my antacid. The devil tried to show himself but obviously he is a loser so I’m alright. Anyway, that’s story for another post.  I usually don’t set too much goals at the beginning of the year. I feel like as the year goes by, new goals come up. I’m very blessed. I started last year not hopeful, not believing that God is really there for me. 2014 was the worst year of my life and I was just over everything at the beginning of 2015 but God came through. I can’t even start listing how God came through. Oh and I was able to pass my licensing exam here in Nigeria as you all know. I am more than happy and thankful right now and even more sure of what I want to do with my life and who (the kind of person) I want to be with. 

I’m going to be posting most of the blog posts because Titi is really busy and if I don’t post anything then what’s the point really. Ya get me? Ok good. 

Now, this year I’m going to start working as a Doctor! Finally eh. I feel like my tumblr friends would understand that ‘Finally’. I was in med school for a while. LOL. I’m most likely moving to another state and although it is exciting I’m low key a bit worried. Maybe it’ll help me work on my social skills… That’s a good thing right? 

I pray this year is a great year for all of us. We had a family devotion this morning with every member of the family present and my Dad shared Deut 28: 1-14 with us after everything and we decided that we will all personally read it everyday at least for the month of January. So feel free to check it out and read it to yourself. Thank you all for taking the time out of your day to read our blog. We appreciate it. Please continue reading. We promise you this year will be more exciting so stay tuned!
