A lil' nervousy here......

Ok so this is my first blog entry & I just want to add that as it gets closer to Carnival 2K7 I am getting more & more nervous. WOI! Well now that everything is about Carnival wit me even my hubby get's really annoyed, I am sorry but this is a big deal to me. OMG! My best friend too it seems all we talk about these days is carnival. Example of a conversation we may have " Eh gyul how yuh goin deh?" " Ah doing good gyul, how you & di fam?" "We cool nuh......you decided wah fetes yuh wah go to?" & so on I won't even get into the rest.
Well honestly being inspired by fellow blogger Saucy Diva deh, I have to say it is incredibly funny, my best friend & I look at her blog faithfully everyday. LOL! Anywho!!! I dunno if you can tell by my screen name deh but I am not a Trini to di bone but I am a Trini By Injection. For those of you wondering wah she talking about, is my hubby whom injected me wit all dis Trini flava. Needless to say I now love Trinidad(yes I have been deh), love di food, love di people, & yes I love di lingo. Wit all di jokes of my hubby's family saying dat I am more Trini den they are my in law's especially & still must add dat I am still a latina to di bone but I cyaa help but love meh soca boi.
Ok but enough about dat, I am extremely nervous about carnival, we are about a month away & laaaawd! I am not ready at all at all. I haven't lost all di weight I promised myself to lose, I haven't bought my shoes yet, I am not done buying all my makeup yet. AHHHHHHH! I have however finished buying all my feteing gear which I guess is one weight off my shoulders. Well I have put the pedal to the metal now on my work out, having my new 2K7 soca on really helping me visualize myself on di road in meh skimpy next to nuttn costume. Laaaaawd! I betta loose all dem weight boi!
Ok now wit all dat I have to leave you wit dis e-mail dat meh friend sent me. It describes myself & her & possibly most of all yuh out deh.
