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!

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…

New School Dating

How many single readers do I have? Are you struggling with dating? No? Good for you! Yes? Why is it so hard?! Sigh.

Well, I have several thoughts on that last part. Mostly, I'm glad that it is not just ME that dating is so hard for.

Online Dating - Dating sites specifically.

Y'all, I signed up for online dating and almost instantly regretted it! I paid for a month and cancelled my subscription after two weeks. What are you really here for? Who sent you? Those are the questions I wanted to ask most of the guys that messaged me. Mostly they just lurked on my profile. Like, don't you know these sites tell me when you view my profile? I can see it. Why aren't you saying anything? Do I have a boob hanging out in one of my pictures? Phew, no I don't. Sigh. So yeah, that got nowhere. I'm impatient, I know, but online is not for me. Clearly it works for some people though. I find that if you will lie about the simple things, it will be impossible for me to trust you wit…

Baby No More, Baby Magic is FOUR!

Like seriously, where did the time go?

She was just a wee little thing yesterday! Now she is sassy, independent and full of honesty. Like FULL of honesty. She knows nothing about your feelings so she doesn't give 2 cents about hurting them. The kid just tells it like it is. And I hope she never changes.

I decided not to have a party this year. But guess what? It turned into a party anyway! Friends don't let friends eat cake alone apparently! It was awesome! The night before I baked her cake. She refused to go to sleep so I let her decorate some of the extra cupcakes. She insisted on licking ALL the frosting when we were done. When she finally went to sleep, I hand pumped what seemed like a thousand balloons - and my carpal tunnel is still yelling at me about it. I put the balloons on the floor in her room so she would be surprised when she woke up. She was! She woke up singing "Mommy, it's morninggggg, it's my birthdayyyyyyyy!" She's so stinking cute!
