Everyone should enjoy themselves..

The feeling of love, or may just be heartburn.

Yep.  Valentine’s Day is right around the corner.   While some of us look at Feb. 14th as a great day to celebrate the joy of  love and affection, most of us look at it as just another random day that has been severely commercialized by big companies to capitalize off an idea that should really be celebrated everyday.  Hey, I’m just saying….At any rate, the day is here to stay (look at me, I made a rhyme haha) and we can learn to enjoy it by letting that special someone know just how special they make us feel by having that special place in our heart…

Pardon me, but as you can see I’m sort of biased towards the day.  Is it too late to say Bah, Humbug!!!!  I’m just kidding people.  I kinda like going into the neighborhood grocery stores on the day of, just to see Joe Random Guy getting upset with himself because there’s only one mylar balloon left that says “get well soon” and a card with no envelope.  So sad.  So if you’re looking forward to the Day of Love, here are a few places/things the good folks at DaWnYeLe! have picked for you:

J. Alexander’s Restaurant–This restaurant has always been one of my favorite places to go and have an intimate dinner with your significant other.  Dimmed lighting , great food and great drinks, you can’t go wrong.  The price is steady and the wait staff is impeccable.

Valentine’s Day-The Movie–There has been quite the buzz regarding this movie due out Feb. 12th.   It has an ensemble cast with the likes of  Jamie Foxx, Julia Roberts, Patrick Dempsey and others.  There’s nothing wrong with a great date night movie, but get your tickets early as I’m sure it will sell out fast this coming weekend.

MyDearValentine.com–A great website to search for all things love.  This site has it everything.  Whether it’s browsing for valentines gifts and tips, questions about relationships and dating, travel guides for that romantic getaway, or even sending E-cards to that special someone, you can get it all here.

Chili’s Restaurant–Hey, you can’t go wrong with this restaurant.  Not as intimate as some other establishments but the  prompt service definitely makes up for it.  With a reasonably priced menu, great food and 2 for 1 drinks, what more can you ask for?  With several locations nationwide, there’s bound to be one close to you.

We at DaWnYeLe! hope you have a memorable V-Day weekend, so please plan ahead to avoid the rush and be safe!

VIA la vida…

Imagine having some of the best coffee in America…to go. Look, we all know Starbucks is arguably the best in the coffee business (except in Louisiana, where in my opinion Community Coffee is king), and this creation called STARBUCKS VIA READY BREW is a win-win in my book.  It’s a refreshing alternative that tastes just like the fresh brewed SB coffee you stand in line for.  But guess what?  It can be made in the comfort of your home while wearing your onesie pajamas…if you’re into that sort of thing.  With Italian, Colombian and Decaf flavors starting at only 3.99 for a 3 pack, you can’t help but satisfy your daily dose of hot caffeine goodness with this little treat.  Click here to pick up some in your area.

Try it.  It’s DaWnYeLe! Certified!!

Good evening humans. I’m back with my first addition to what I’ll just call COOLNESS. Occasionally we all run across that thing that we just have to share, text and tweet to the whole world about, hence the coolness. I plan to bring you lovely little bits from all over, but this entry is a little something for my locals. Luckily for a fluffy gal like me, I was born in south Louisiana, a region that is overrun with wonderful restaurants. I tend to get hooked on something in the area about once a month. Really. Right now (and probably for as long as they stay in business) my lunch time favorite is Taco Sisters. Located on upper end of Johnston Street in Lafayette LA, this cute little orange drive thru has the best fish tacos on planet earth.

Trust a fluffy girl, as I kid you not when I say that they’re orgasmic. Made fresh to order, this little shop is open five days a week from 11 am to 2pm serving tacos, “smoky boats” and salads that will provide a welcome change to your lunch routine. The food is the business, the service is always great and the prices are recession friendly. If you’re ever in the area, check the sisters out and try the fish taco with avocado and cheese. So much better than a run for the border.
