A Real Date

So I'm laying in bed chatting with some of my girls and we begin helping my best friend figure out what she's going to wear to her date tonight. She was thinking of going with some jeans and heels or something low key since she doesn't know where she's going and the weather outside is pretty nasty. But then my homegirl tells her to wear a dress and some heels, preferable green because that's the guys favorite color. The convo then goes into how her ex would just say he's taking her out and she would always wear a dress because she never knew where they would be going and that's when it hit me, I'VE NEVER HAD A REAL DATE BEFORE.

Now don't get me wrong, I've gone out with plenty of guys and stuff but I never really had that real date vibe. When the guy comes and picks you up from your house and drives to this really nice restaurant and you enjoy your night with each other and all that mushy stuff. I wonder if I just don't know how to pick these males or something. Every time I do go out with a guy its usually to the movies or we just chill at his crib. Although I do enjoy doing these things, I would really like to go on that nice real date where I can put on a really nice outfit with some heels and he takes me out to a nice place and we get to know each other. Hopefully one day this can happen for me.

Why Did I Get Married 2

Last night was bonding night with all 3 of my sisters and we went to go see "Why Did I Get Married 2" and then went to dinner. It was really a nice time and drama free thank God.

Now this movie was GREAT!!!! I would definitely recommend it to any and everyone because it is a must see. It had me laughing throughout the whole movie and it brought me to tears in certain scenes. I would like to go into detail but I really don't want to ruin it for anyone so I'll try to keep it vague.

Angela was her usual crazy self and was out of control with her mouth, and once again her husband couldn't do anything about it. Sheila and Troy were beautiful together and I was happy things were working out in her favor but there's a move she pulled in the movie and all I kept saying to myself was, "Did this girl not see Soul Food?" smh. They went through an issue that a lot of married couples go through and that men have a problem with, which is a man's pride. Patricia and Gavin always seemed to be the couple that had their ish together but this movie proved that they were going through way more than everyone else and it just became too much for them to handle. Their relationship teaches a lesson that if you hold all your feelings inside, one day you will blow up and everything will come out and there will be some serious consequences. I was taken aback by this consequence, but I guess it gave the movie the "juice" that made it soooo realistic. Terry and Diane's relationship seemed to do pretty well as well but that "cheating" that was done could cause some serious havoc. I too feel that the worst scenario is when emotions are involved. Mike also teaches a vital lesson as to what happens when dealing with 80/20.

If you haven't seen this movie yet, I don't know what you're waiting for. I may even go see it again in the theaters and I am definitely buying it on dvd to go with my "Why Did I Get Married". For those of you who did see the movie, what did you think???
