Happy Birthday Beezy!

Today is a very special day. Today is Beezy's Birthday!

I don't think there's any way I could correctly describe in words how much he means to me. How much he's made me happy and how much fun we've had together. I only hope that I've given him as much support, happiness and love as he's given me. So today on this very special day, I am wishing him a very Happy Birthday filled with love. Here's to many more years of Happy Birthdays.

These are just the highlights of how we started our life together...







Happy Birthday!
I love you!

12 More Inches

On Friday, I thought my weekend was going to be like any other weekend. I'd relax, run errands, get some stuff done around the house etc. Well that idea went to hell in a hand basket real quick. Now before I jump right in and let you know the crazy, catastrophic events that occurred. I want you all to know that I'm fine. Beezy is fine and Tesco is still begging for treats. Friday night started out completely normal. I came home from work and Beezy and I decided to run a few errands. We desperately needed printer ink because we were completely out and needed to print something for his work that was due the next morning. We left the house and hit up Target and grabbed some Chipotle for dinner.

Saturday is when it went crazy.

Saturday, I sat around in my pajamas for hours catching up on Watch What Happens Live and all my other Bravo guilty pleasure shows. I played with Tesco and read these beauties...
It immediately sparked a frenzy. To answer the question. No I am not engaged. I love wedding and bridal magazines. Yes, we have been talking about it. 

Later in the day, Beezy's mom stopped by. She's in the process of selling her house and she's going to become our newest roommate for awhile. She came over and dropped off a lot of her plants. When Beezy got home we left for a little while to run an errand. When we came home that's when it all went into the hand basket. We get out of the car and my neighbor who has never spoken to me in the two years I've lived here starts running across the road, barefoot screaming that my house was on fire.

WHAT?

She then tells me that there was an explosion and the fire department banged on the door and no one was there to answer. At that point I felt like I was in one of those moments caught on candid camera. We had ordered a pizza in the car ride home so we've got the pizza kid at our door step now, the neighbor yelling there was an explosion at my house while standing in the middle of the road barefoot and Beezy in the house seeing what the heck she's talking about. I didn't know what to do. I told her thank you and started making my way to the house. I told the pizza kid to hold on and as I walk through the door, I've got Beezy telling me not to look in the backyard.

What do I do? Immediately walk to the backyard. Tesco in the meantime was meowing his little head off because as much he doesn't want you to know it... he's a scaredy cat. And Oh...my...God.
This photo was actually taken the next morning and the night cool air helped dissipate the black ground. Here's is some photos that were actually taken right when we saw it...
 Literally 12 inches from the house!


The fire came so close to the house. I mean literally it was 12 inches from catching the house on fire. All I can say is, Thank God the house didn't catch on fire. It would have only taken another 12 inches for it to have set it ablaze. I definitely think my grandpa was watching out for me. When I bought this house two years ago, there was hummingbirds everywhere. We see them frequently around the house and Beezy saw one the other day. We always said with my grandpa anytime we see one it's him watching out for us. Well he definitely was on Saturday.

Here's the best part. The fire department and SMUD didn't even have the courtesy to leave us a note on the door. We had to make about 15 calls before finally being able to find out what caused it. The non emergency line told us that an explosion happened at the electric pole and caused a down live wire. The down wire then caused the ground fire. Called SMUD and haven't heard a thing yet. Their next call will be from my insurance. So far their customer service at SMUD is a negative two right now. Since their wire could have burned my house down, I feel like they better get on it. Thank goodness the house is ok and we are ok.

We spent Sunday resting from the stress. Beezy even sold his Raiders tickets. Let's hope we don't repeat this weekend ever again.

Theater Thursday

It's Thursday and that can only mean one thing... it's Theater Thursday! Since we're in October it's a Halloween themed month of movies! This week's featured movie is, Scream.

In 1996, Scream hit the big screen. Scream came to the box office when horror films had died down. There hadn't been a movie that really scared the teen generation of the time. That all changed as soon as Drew Barrymore hit the screen. Wes Craven brought a new story to the screen that related to teenagers.
 
High school student Sydney Prescott (Neve Campbell) was going through a hard time. It was the year anniversary of her mother's brutal murder. Her dad was going out of town and her relationship with her boyfriend was rocky. In her sleepy, little town of Woodsboro everyone knew who she was because of her mother's death and the scandal that went along with it. When the town is shocked once again with the surprise double murder of two teenagers Sydney and the rest of the town are put on edge. Since her dad is away she's entrusted with her best friend and their family who includes a man in law enforcement.
What Sydney learns very quickly is that these two teens murders have far more in common with her than she ever imagined. Now the killer has his eyes set on her and anyone else that comes along in his path. The town goes on lockdown, setting a curfew for all of it's residents. This is meant to protect them but will it? Who is murdering these teens and why? Who will make it through the weekend of this nightmare anniversary?
 
Watch this classic horror film and find out who dies and survives.
 
This movie launched all of the horror films that followed. There has even been 4 Scream movies made to date.

Weekend Review

Seriously, where do the weekends go? It's like you wait all week long for Friday and before you know it, it's Monday!

Before the weekend actually began we hit up the first Sacramento Kings Pre-Season Game.
The Kings played the Toronto Raptors and the Kings came out victorious! I've already talked about the Kings having a special place in my heart so it was nice to see them get a win. We also started back up our series of #jenandangel at the Kings games. I'm sure I'll subject you guys to many more Kings games' photos over the season.

On Friday, after escaping work Beezy and I headed out for Date Night. This week we hit up the Cheesecake Factory where I engorged myself with their Macaroni and Cheese Hamburger. It's literally a hamburger with a deep fried macaroni and cheese on top of it. It's amazing and I suggest you get in the car and go there now to have one. Eat it all. Every bite!

On Saturday, I got a much needed hair cut and highlight at the fabulous Amithyst Boutique Salon...
 
On Sunday, we hit up the Raiders Game in Oakland.

It was so hot that day! Oakland is never hot like this and of course it was in the high 80's. The entire game we were sweating to death. Plus the Raiders lost. BOO! This was also the first time I've ever rode the Sacramento Raider Rooter bus. That was an experience.

Hope your weekends went great!
