About Last Night...Dinner and a Movie Review

Even through my single-dom I'm a sucker for a good romantic movie. I don't necessarily believe in fairy tales, but I do believe in happy endings. Especially for those deserving of it. I'm also a sucker for a good comedy. Laughing is good for the soul!

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of receiving free passes to see a movie that will be hitting the theaters next month. A romantic comedy with a well-known cast. Is it me or is Kevin Hart starring in EVERYTHING lately? I'm not mad at him though!

So...first I'll discuss dinner. I don't often get to dine out. Money is tight and I feel horrible when I leave my little babe after I've been at work all day. I know that I still must have a life outside of her, but I still hate leaving her. So I score these passes and secured a babysitter for the evening. By the time I got off work I was hungry. I asked my date where we should go and we played the back and forth game of restaurants in the area until we landed on a new spot I had never even heard of. Yes, let's go there!
Check out their website here:

Flaming Grill is housed in what used to be Bailey's Sports Bar...I didn't even know they had closed! (See I don't get out the house much!) You would never know the place was a bar! It's lit up like Christmas and has a ton of food of the Asian variety. Did I mention I'm also a sucker for Asian food? They have your typical Chinese buffet items. But what stole the show is the sushi bar! Freshly made and a large range of choices! For $9.99 it's a must eat situation! I was surprised at how much I ate! Oh, and they give military discounts! WIN! Go there you Columbia people! You can't beat the price for great sushi. They also have a hibachi bar and a chocolate fountain! Go there! It's been compared to Jasmine Buffet...I like Flaming Grill better.

Now for the movie...
About Last Night
First of all, I loved the cast. I'm a fan of almost all of their work. I think this movie kicks some serious ass! It wasn't too predictable and had so many hilarious scenes I can't even tell you how many times I almost died laughing! The movie is about two couples that are completely opposite and their ups and downs.

This is the description from IMDB "New love for two couples as they journey from the bar to the bedroom and are eventually put to the test in the real world."

They are so dysfunctional that you can't help but to love it! I give this movie two thumbs up. I would even pay to see it!

The movie hits theaters on Valentine's Day and would be a great date night movie! Even if you don't have a "formal date" you should get together with your friends and check this one out...unless you are one of those people that hate seeing "lovers" together on fact, if that is the case you should just wait until the next week to go see it so you don't run into people who are celebrating after V-Day. I'm just saying!

But I thought the movie was well written and funny. I don't think it's been rated yet, but it should be rated R. There is a lot of profanity and obscenities but dang it's funny! I know I'm using that word a lot but it is. Or at least I thought so.

If you check it out, let me know if you like it or not! I would love to hear your take on it!

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
