Sizzle: A Restaurant Review

Hey people!
I hope your week is starting off better than mine (work woes)...but on a high note, I have a restaurant review for you! I tried to score a gift card to giveaway...but that didn't happen.

Usually I stay away from new restaurants for at least a month. Or two. What's my issue? I hate kinks. Like really hate kinks. Especially for non-chain establishments that are just kicking off. But one of my gal pals posted a link to this place before they opened and I knew it would be right up my alley.

The name of the restaurant is Sizzle and it is "A Bacon Eatery!" As much as I try to cut back on pork (and beef), I don't think I will EVER quit bacon. Like never. I don't eat it as much as I used to but man, I loves me some bacon! So needless to say, this place wasn't open a good two weeks before I made my way there. The circumstances that got me there are a little shady, but I went nonetheless.

A few friends and I decided to head on over and give it a go...all equal bacon lovers. I must say, overall, I was impressed. There were a few kinks but not enough for me to say I'm never going back. And I'm sure those minor issues will be worked out soon, if they haven't already been worked out.

One of the things that I loved was that the owner came out and introduced himself and he walked around to check on things. Now this may be because I told him I was going to blog about my experience, but I'd like to hope that it is his norm.

It's a quaint little place located in 5 Points here in Columbia. I see another visit in my near future. The waitresses were friendly and the drinks were awesome. See below for what we had for dinner.

Peachy Lemonade

Bacon Wrapped Hot Dog w/ Bacon Pimento Cheese

Even the pickles were yummy...Hey Grasshopper!

Sizzle branded Brisket Burger

All B and No LT...Hey Tran!

Bacon Wrapped Shrimp and Grits

Bacon Split

Bacon Cheesecake
Overall, everything was enjoyed. I usually don't drink during the week (or on the weekend for that matter lol) but the waitress kept insisting I try the Peachy Lemonade. It didn't disappoint! The highlight for me, however, was the dessert. We shared both...but I could have easily devoured them both on my own in one sitting. The cheesecake was something they were just trying out, but I would scream to them "LEAVE IT ON THE MENU!" For real.

So, hats off to Sizzle for showing us a bacon good time! Y'all go try it and let me know what you think!

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.
