Yummy on a budget

Milestones restaurant has the right idea with their little Monday night special
Girl's Night out
Girls' night out

The price is right and the company is even better!
It's summer time, simply made for patios and Stilettos ;)

Girls' night out

Nothing should ever come between girls and their good friends...the bellinis

Girls' night out

And of course a girl's night is not complete without some munchies.
There are 6 to choose from, but the first two are salads. Our server, simply asked us if we wanted the last 4 from the menu. Smart Man!

Girls' night out

Yummy Yam Frites


Girls' night out

Hot Spinach & Artichoke Dip


Girls' night out

Crispy Honey Phyllo Shrimp

and last but not least

Girls' night out

Baked Goat Cheese and Slow Roasted Garlic Flat Bread Platter

And if you still have some room after all of the wonder seen above, add a little meat loaf to the mix ;)

Girls' night out

This is happiness at it's best and of course it does not kill the budget.

"Sex and the City II"

A pleasure, simply a pleasure movie.
Love love loved it!

If you are a closet Miranda, Samantha, Charlotte or a Carrie you will enjoy this movie top to bottom.
This movie was the perfect Friday night escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday gray life.
The colors, the shoes, the friendships and of course the loves are back and just as wonderfully shiny as ever.

In several reviews the plot line is harshly abused, but for me it was simply perfect. Exploring the real life challenges with love, marriage, and age made this movie easy to relate to and enjoy. After all, you can wear designer gowns and have all the men in the world and still eventually end up with a major hot flash in the middle of a dessert!
Plus the gorgeous background of Abu Dhabi can be almost the 5th character in this movie.

So I say watch it, love and then see it at least once more for the shoes and then again for the clothes ;)

For I will always be a whole lot of Samantha in Carrie's shoes with Miranda's practicality and a touch of Charlotte's innocence.

Overall, this movie deserves 4.5 lip balms out of 5!
