Movies

Shrek (2001)

Despite a rocky start for Shrek and Fiona, it appears that the ogre and princess aren’t so dissimilar after all. Shrek embarks on a quest (aided by his “noble steed” Donkey) to bring Princess Fiona to Lord Farquaad in exchange for the grouchy king removing Shrek’s fairy tale pals from his swamp. When it’s all said and done, the narcissistic king plans to marry Fiona. However, her new friendships—along with a significant secret—threatened to derail the plan. Love appears to strike when you least expect it. It is rated PG-13.

Up (1998)

Love is loss, and the first few minutes of this Pixar classic impart that lesson in the most succinct and heartbreaking way conceivable. The rest of the film is filled with floating balloon houses, talking dogs, and too enthusiastic Wilderness Explorers.

WALL-E (2008)

Robots, too, have hearts. WALL-E has been tasked with cleaning up the massive rubbish strewn across Earth after the planet was abandoned. He goes about his business until one day he meets EVE, another robot sent to discover if there was life on Earth again. WALL-E stays committed to his love and protects EVE even when she becomes unresponsive.

Tangled (2010)

Rapunzel has been imprisoned in a tower, living alone with her mother, who guards her from the perils of the outside world. However, a fortunate encounter with a thief allows her to explore the world beyond the tower and discover the sky full of lights that she is captivated to. Along the road, she might even fall in love.

Trolls (2016)

You will enjoy seeing a gang of candy-colored trolls embark on a fantastic, musical trip.

UglyDolls (2019)

As the free-spirited UglyDolls confront what it means to be a little different, they teach the most essential love lesson of all: how to love yourself.

Beauty and the Beast (1991)

When you combine a charming singing, dutiful daughter with an ogre cursed for his bad behavior, you have a timeless love story. Belle will go to any length to help her father, including taking his place when he is imprisoned for trespassing. But all is not as it appears, and maybe, just maybe, the Beast will find his heart after all.

Aladdin (1992)

Aladdin is a wonderful love story that also emphasizes the necessity of being loyal to oneself. While Aladdin fell in love with Jasmine, he knew she had to marry a prince, so when he was offered the opportunity to cash in on some genie wishes, he decided to become what he felt Jasmine desired. But the reality was that she preferred the real Aladdin to the phony Prince Ali Ababwa.

The Fault in Our Stars (2014)

Every scene (and chapter) in Hazel and Gus’ love story has teenagers swooning, sobbing, and everything in between. Curiosity strikes when the two teenage cancer sufferers meet at a support group, and before you know it, they’re inseparable.

Enchanted (2007)

A cruel queen banishes Giselle from her storybook world, leaving her stranded in Manhattan. But when Giselle falls in love with a charmingly imperfect divorce lawyer who comes to her rescue – despite the fact that she is already engaged to a perfect fairy tale prince back home – she wonders if a storybook perspective of romance can survive in the real world.

Jungle Cruise (2021)

Dr. Lily Houghton and wisecracking captain Frank Wolff partner up for the adventure of a lifetime on Disney’s Jungle Cruise, a raucous trip down the Amazon in search of an ancient tree with medicinal powers. Secrets of the forgotten tree emerge amid danger and mystical forces hiding in the bush, as their fate—and that of mankind—hangs in the balance.

Aladdin (2019)

In this entertaining remake of Aladdin, the original animated Disney film is given the live-action makeover.

Clifford The Big Red Dog (2021)

Is there any love stronger than the one a youngster has for their dog? In this live-action version of the popular cartoon, follow Emily and Clifford on their adventures.

Beauty and the Beast (2017)

A selfish Prince is cursed to become a monster for the rest of his life until he learns to love a beautiful young woman that he holds captive.

Lunch Date with My Little Cupid | The Melting Pot | Atlanta, GA

The Melting Pot is a fondue restaurant, offering a range of fondue cooking styles as well as distinctive meals, salads, and amazing desserts.

It was simple to find parking because it was immediately close to the restaurant. The parking fee was ten dollars.

I booked reservations at 3pm and arrived around 10 minutes late, but they still weren’t ready for us. We had to wait around 10 minutes longer for a table to be cleared and cleaned.

There wasn’t much seating available near the front entry, but there weren’t many people there anyway.

To celebrate Valentine’s Day, I dined with my baby and cousin on a three-course fondue feast.

Our server greeted us and asked whether it was our first visit to the restaurant, which it was. The menu was a little perplexing, but he went on to break down what we were looking at on the menu so we could grasp it better.

There were three menus: the holiday special, the normal menu, and the kid’s menu were all available.

I noted that the kid’s menu didn’t really seem… childish. There were mostly only meat and seafood selections. My toddler doesn’t really eat any of it, so I inquired if they had any fries available; they did not.

The Melting Pot presented an incredible, participatory dining experience that converted moments into memories from the minute the first piece of bread was dipped into our cheese fondue.

Our server began by bringing us our drinks. I ordered a sweet tea, which is a popular drink known for being “hit or miss” in terms of sweetness. I had no complaints. My cousin ordered a water with lemon and I ordered my baby an apple juice that came in a cup with a lid and straw.

We were asked what style of cheese fondue we preferred because we were there for the Valentine’s Day special. It took us a minute to decide, but our server, whose name I wish I remembered, was really patient. I then inquired which option he would suggest, and he suggested that the cheddar cheese was the standard and most popular choice. That’s what we got.

Our cheese fondue was provided with bread, vegetables, and fruit on the side. I never thought about dipping a green apple in melted cheese, hehe. It tasted strange.

Then we had to decide which salad we wanted. We both ordered Caesar salads. It was served with no additional dressing to be added. I only like ranch on my salad so I waited to eat mine until I could request some to be brought to the table.

We were then asked what kind of chocolate we preferred. We went with the traditional milk chocolate.

It was my absolute favorite part of our lunch. I honestly believed the chocolate fondue order only included a side of strawberries. However, oh my goodness! Strawberries, bananas, brownies, marshmallows, cake slices, and waffle pieces were included. It was incredible! The warm melted chocolate was delicious.

We chose our favorite cheese fondue, salad, entrée, and chocolate for the 4-Course Experience, then prepared our food and savored sauces to enhance the flavor in every bite.

The “Melt Your Heart Petite Entrée” was an optional addition to the Valentine’s Day event special. It appeared to be a little taster lunch. It came with three pieces of chicken, three shrimp, and three pieces of steak. Some extras were also included, such as potatoes and broccoli, as well as a small selection of different sauces to try.

Instructions with appropriate cooking times for each item were supplied, as well as a disclosure regarding cooking safety at the table and how to avoid cross contamination.
