It Was All Good!

I remember a time when I used to live for the weekend. Now I hardly ever have anything planned. This past weekend was an exception. I had various activities planned with friends and my church family so I knew it would be a busy weekend. Everything didn't go as I expected, but I figure...God has a plan and everything works out as it should. Overall, the weekend was awesome!

Friday, I got off work and was close to starving. My friend and I decided to try this restaurant that I ran across in a local newspaper. Mudbone's Swamp Shack. When we pulled up, my friend said "This is it?" It is a very small establishment with only about 10 tables. We got there right as a catering order was being filled and had to wait a while before we actually got our food. But let me tell you, it was worth the wait! Usually we have to drive down to Charleston to get such awesome seafood. I am glad we found this place. And it's practically in my backyard. The owner, Lisa (I think it was Lisa), was very nice and came to check on us often and even chatted a bit. She has been in this location for about a year. I see her needing to expand soon!

I ordered a small Steamer bucket and some oysters. I was in heaven. The only thing I would have changed is the size of my stomach so that I could eat more! Their drink selections are also very reasonably priced and from the moment you walk in you feel like family. I definitely recommend Mudbone's to any lover of Seafood, Cajun and Creole dishes. The next time I will be sure to try the shrimp and grits! Oh! And they make their beignets from scratch!! Take THAT Cafe' Du Monde! LOL

After I ate all that goodness, I went home, took a shower and went to bed :)

Visit them!

So then Saturday, I got up at 6:30am...because I went to bed so early the night before...and cleaned the house. A new movie was opening that I was kind of anxious to see, so, I figured it would be popular and I didn't want to pay $10.50 to go to the I caught the 10:15am movie for $5. People were lined outside of the theater before they even opened to catch this movie. I didn't know people woke up that early on Saturdays! The theater was JAM PACKED!

The movie was Think Like A Man based on Steve Harvey's Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man book.

You know how sometimes you see funny previews and when you go to see the movie those are the only funny parts in it? Don't you hate that?! I know I do. Well this movie was NOTHING like that! The entire movie was hilarious and had an amazing storyline and star-studded cast. They didn't even over-power one another. In fact the movie was so good, I would pay $5 to go and see it again! It was #1 in theaters this weekend grossing over $3 million. Awesomeness. Way to go Steve! So if you haven't seen it, I suggest you go!

I hope your weekend was awesome as well and I pray each and every one of you has a blessed upcoming week!

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks! Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash! I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one. Here are what this product c

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh. She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes... After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard! She really enjoys Dial W

Holiday Party Etiquette

With the holidays coming up on us so fast, it’s only right that we talk party etiquette. I can only speak about Black party etiquette, so that’s what I will discuss here. I'm sure some of these rule can be applied across different cultures/ethnicities. If you are invited to a party, gathering, dinner, or the like, there are some things that you just don’t do. If we invited you, we must like you at least a little bit. That can end quickly. Here are some general rules of Black house gatherings that expand beyond the holidays. You’re welcome. Don’t assume all Black events start late. Yes…a lot of them do, but you don’t want to be the late one. If I tell you it starts at 3, I’ve most likely accounted for the lateness of my family members. We move on without them. Don’t be tardy for the party. Don’t show up empty handed. Even if you are told not to worry about bringing anything, bring something. Even if it’s a bottle of sparkling cider. There will be massive side eye if you s
