The Best Man Holiday (No Spoiler)

Unlike most people, I watched zero trailers for The Best Man Holiday. Honestly, I did not expect much, but planned to support it. I own the original on dvd and I have watched it so much that I think the characters are real people… I just could not picture a sequel.

On Saturday, I walked in the theatre without expectations and took my seat toward the front of the theatre (someone purchased tickets on the late freight). If you have ever been to the theatre with me, you know I like sitting towards the back and smack dab in the center of the row.

Lights out and phones off! The movie began by taking us back to where we last saw our friends, so nostalgic. I felt all the emotions rushing back. That Lance is one fine specimen and Shelby still irks me, but I digress.

The Best Man Holiday is so worth every penny and minute of attention. I think that I may even like the second more than the original, go figure!

Malcolm D. Lee and the team did an amazing job. Cue the standing ovation. I laughed out loud (not silently, like most LOLs), I wanted to cry, sung (in my head), and cheered. I and what seemed like the entire theater enjoyed catching up with our old friends.

Have you seen it? If so, what are your thoughts?

Ice Skating At L.A. LIVE

L.A. LIVE is an entertainment complex located in downtown Los Angeles, across from the Staples Center. During the holiday season L.A. LIVE is home to the beautifully lit outdoor Kings Holiday Ice rink.  This year the rink opened  Nov. 24  and closed Jan. 2.

On New Year’s night, I went skating with family.  My sisters and cousin left with ice on their heads and backs because they started a war with my brother. It’s not smart to throw ice at guy that can out skate you, even if you guys out number him.

Skating is always fun, especially before the ice gets crowded. I learned to do a twirl, so I left happy. I should have recorded the dozens of people falling and made a Youtube video… maybe next year.

Christmas Caroling at Culver Village

The holiday chaos is over, so I am getting back on track. Bare with me as I play catch up. There are a few events that took place waaaay back in 2012  but I want to share them with you.

Below are pictures from Echoes of Hope’s ‘Be A Light’ project in December. We sung Christmas Carols to the seniors at Culver Village in Culver City, CA. The residents enjoyed it. Our group won the unofficial “Most Festive” award.

The last picture is the Circuit Board tying bows on candy canes and preparing for the project a few days before.
