I havent felt like blogging all this while and frankly i've been too busy

The only thing that makes me wanna blog is yesterday's memorable inaguration of

the man who has shown us that if you can dream it, you can be it..

the man who has become an inspiration to millions of people around the world.

the man who had the audacity to hope...

Abraham Lincoln's self appointed protege;

President Barack Obama!

It was simply exceptional the way millions of americans braved the harsh weather to witness the inaguration of the first black or African -American (which is politically correct?) president of the United states of America...

The occasion was of immense significance to the black community who up till about 50 yrs ago were still severly segregated in the land they called home and to the American people and their history as a nation...a monument to how much they've grown as a people.

My fav things/moments at the inaguration...

- Sasha and malia Obama with their grandmother Marian Robinson......My! those gals are beautiful..and it was a joy to watch the sheer ordinariness of a happy family in extraordinary times!

-Michelle Obama's yellow gold and green ensemble by Cuban designer Isabel Toledo......extra fierce

-the brief interlude during the presidential oath-taking( hope the Chief justice wasnt intentionally up to anything!lol!)

-The Obamas meeting the Bushes for coffee at the White house in the morning...

Michelle presented the outgoing first lady Laura Bush with a pen engraved with yesterday's date and a journal inscribed with the quotaion that read “There will come a time when you believe everything is finished. Yet that will be the beginning.” .......................aint that just sweet?

-Joe Biden's smile...d man has really got a sunny one...he obviously couldnt contain his joy as he was almost dancing on the parade ground....(wonder what wifey was thinking)...and btw she didnt look half bad herself with her red coat and knee high boots...
- The president's new cadillac one fortified tank!!

all in all, it was a fantastic ceremony..yeah..and lest i forget, i loved the ball gown mitchelle wore for the inagural dinner..( i hear fashionistas have a thing or two to say about this one tho')

i thot she looked gorgeous none the it then Mitchelle!
and even if some say she cant dance to save her life...WE STILL LOVE HER
