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!

Black Panther: Movie Review

Please tell me y'all have seen the movie? If you haven't, don't read this post!

Let me give you a little bit of my back story on this Marvel Cinematic Universe. I am a Marvel fan. I don't read the comics, but the movies?! I'm here for them. Some of them are blah, but I watch them anyway. Why? Because usually they overlap and share stories. So, in preparation for the opening of Black Panther, I watched ALL of the Marvel movies in order of the stories, not the release date. I followed CNET's guide and it was pretty accurate. I did not watch the TV shows because I would still be watching. You don't have to. The movies will fill you in pretty well.

Now, for what I thought.

1. This movie was beautiful! The colors, the wardrobes, the technology, the natural hair, the beautiful black people that starred in this film, it was amazing!

2. The women. OMG. The WOMEN! The strong women in the movie inspired me. Okoye makes me want to shave my hair back off. Nakia makes …

Pura Vida!

Hey y'all!

I keep making promises to do better about posting and then I break those promises. So I won't make any such promise this time!

I wanted to give you all a little run down on a trip I recently took (and LOVED). Two of my sisters and my two best friends and I decided to make a run for the equator. To Costa Rica! We started planning pretty early and got tickets and such purchased. We stayed in Jaco (pronounced Haa-CO). I'm still not sure I'm saying that correctly. You should have seen the looks on the immigration officer's face when I pronounced it as it is spelled. I'm pretty sure he called me an ignorant American.

Anywho, we flew from Charleston because they had the better fares and schedules at the time that we booked. Charleston to Miami to Jan Santamaria Airport. Something happened on our flight and me and my bestie were asked to move to another seat. It was actually better seats than what we had. Since we were so accommodating, we were given some l…

Soup(er) Sunday!

This past Sunday I hosted a Crafty with Canon party. I won the party through House Party (I love this site!).

Initially I was planning to do a few different finger foods. Well, the temperature dropped and I wanted soup. And chili. So I made both! And my sister also made a soup that was super delicious. I used my usual go to chili recipe, except I doubled up the seasonings because I didn't have a chili seasoning pack. I think it actually tasted better! I made it in my electric pressure cooker! It was so much faster and it tasted better than it usually does. I'm in love with my pressure cooker and would like another one. Anyone have one they want to give me?

Anyway, we had fun exploring the Canon Pixma printer and printing out photos and making cute little frames! But the food was really the star of the show! I'm going to link to all of the recipes because aside from small adjustments, none of them were my own!

Broccoli and Cheese Soup.
This was a big hit! It was my first tim…
