The Reuben H. Fleet Science Center is of my favorite museums to visit with my nieces and nephews! There are always interactive exhibits where the kids can not only play, but also learn! And, the adults play too! It is fun for the entire family! I recently attended the Opening Night Continue reading
I learned about the term sicario a few months ago from a friend which has family who lives in a rural part of a small town in Mexico. She told me it means hitman, someone hired to kill, usually for money or some type of asset, usually involving drug lords. So, when I saw the invitation to the screening of Sicario, I was intrigued. I watched the trailer, it looked Continue reading
I enjoy going to the movies for entertainment, a good laugh, but also to learn. When I have the opportunity to watch a movie which is based on a true story, and is both entertaining and educational, it is the best of both worlds! Everest is one of these movies! I invited Continue reading
As you know, I enjoy watching movies. When I heard there was going to be a screening for Exodus: Gods and Kings, I got excited and was looking forward to seeing the movie. I even watched the trailer a few times before the screening date. Since it is not a chick-flick, my hubby went with me. He is not a big movie goer, but in this case he viewed the trailer and decided this was a movie he wanted to see. We made a date night out of it by going to dinner at PF Chang’s and then heading across the street to the ArcLight Cinemas at Westfield UTC.
Exodus: Gods and Kings (PG-13), is directed by Ridley Scott (known for directing Gladiator, Prometheus, Alien, American Gangster) and stars Christian Bale (best known for The Dark Knight/Batman) as Moses. The movie is the story of Moses’ rise against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton), and how he leads 400,000 slaves on a journey of escape from Egypt. We watched the movie in 3D, the special effects are state of the art and quite amazing! It was nice to see other famous familiar faces in the cast, such as Sigourney Weaver, Ben Kingsley, and John Turturro.
Growing up, I had seen multiple versions of the story of Moses. This movie is the writers’ interpretation of the story. I was curious to see how they would bring the story to life. It was interesting to see how they depicted God, the scene with the Ten Commandments, the parting of the Red Sea, and the multiple plagues. The special effects did not disappoint: the scenes where the Nile was turned red, the locust infestation, the hailstones, and the toad torrents. The movie has scenes filled with action and beautiful costumes. Overall, I found the movie to be entertaining. As I mentioned, it is the writers’ interpretation of the story, so don’t expect it to be the exact same script as movies about Moses you have seen in the past.
According to the box office results, Exodus: Gods and Kings was number one on its opening weekend (just opened this past weekend on December 12), so many other movie goers must have also been looking forward to seeing it as much as I was!
Will you be going to see this movie? Or, did you see it and what did you think of it?

The trailer was my first peek into the movie, you can view it below.
Date night is a good way to change up your routine, get out on the town, and see new places! My hubby and I eat out a few times per week, but usually at a handful of places close to the house or we get take-out. The rest of the nights I cook him dinner, make a snack for me (I try not to eat a heavy dinner) and we eat together at home.
I had been wanting to go to La Jolla and finally talked my hubby into it. He is such a sweetheart that he even accepted to go to Sushi on the Rock with me….and he doesn’t like sushi. I used to spend more time in La Jolla when I was single, usually dinner with friends or out on a date. Sushi on the Rock was one of my favorite restaurants, mostly because I love sushi….oh, and the food is good, there is a nice view from their patio, and the prices are reasonable.
It was nice to go to La Jolla on an official “date night” with my hubby. I put on a little black summer dress and we were on our way to La Jolla. We had a nice conversation and laughs over dinner. It was a relaxing evening, no rush to get home to get things done! We did a little window shopping on Prospect in La Jolla after dinner. I bought a hat and my hubby bought some books. Overall, it was a very nice evening! We got out of the house, change up our routine, and connected over “date night!” We even held hands as we walked around La Jolla, how romantic….what more can a girl ask for?
Below, I share some pictures from our date night….hope you like them!

ESPAÑOL: ¡Salir una noche con tu pareja es una buena manera de cambiar la rutina, salir a pasearte en la noche, y ver lugares nuevos! Mi marido y yo salimos a cenar unas cuantas veces por semana, pero por lo regular es a restaurantes cerca de la casa u ordenamos algo para comer en casa. El resto de las noches, le hago cena y yo me preparo una botanita (no me gusta cenar platillos pesados) y comemos juntos en casa.
Tenía ganas de ir a La Jolla y por fin convenci a mi marido. Es tan lindo conmigo que hasta acepto ir a Sushi on the Rock… y a el no le gusta el sushi. Antes, cuando era soltera, yo pasaba mas tiempo en La Jolla cenando con amistades. Sushi On The Rock era uno de mis restaurantes favoritos, principalmente porque me encanta el sushi…ha, y también porque la comida es rica, tiene buena vista del patio, y los precios no son caros.
Fue lindo salir a La Jolla con mi maridito en una salida romantica “oficial.” Me puse un vestidito veraniego negro y salimos rumbo a La Jolla. Tuvimos una conversación amena y risas durante la cena. Fue una cena relajada, sin tener que apurarnos para llegar a casa por un pendiente. Después de cenar, salimos a caminar y ver las tiendas por Prospect en La Jolla. Me compre un sombrero y mi marido se compro unos libros. ¡Fue una noche muy amena! ¡Nos salimos de la casa, cambiamos la rutina, y nos conectamos en una “noche fuera!” Hasta nos agarramos de la mano mientras caminamos por La Jolla, que romántico… qué mas puede pedi una chica?
Aquí les comparto unas fotos de nuestra noche fuera…. ojala les gusten.
¿Tu sales en una noche romántica con tu pareja? ¿A dónde? ¿Van a algun lugar especial o cambian de lugares?
