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

Baby Magic is Here! My Birth Story

Princesses get their way. And true to form, my little princess decided that she, and only she would be in control of when she arrived. Forget about me or the doctors trying to schedule ANYTHING! **This is a long post that goes into detail. Read at your own risk.** On Sunday, July scratch that. On Saturday, July 20th, I was having cramps. They weren't too painful and were coming only about once every hour. Honestly, I thought I had gas. I had a good bit of visitors that day and told everybody that I felt like I was going to have the baby soon. I was already on bed rest and wasn't doing much. Thanks to some awesome friends, I had enough food that all I had to do was warm it and eat it. After all of the company left, I really just wanted to lie down. So I went to bed. I was awakened maybe 3 times during the night with these "cramps." The next morning I got out of bed about 10:30am (late for me) and took a shower, hoping that the heat would soothe me.
