Weekend Review

This past weekend started with a real bang. Friday night, I get home from work and Beezy had fixed my favorite dinner... Fettuccini Alfredo. I was very happy and ate way more than I should have. After dinner, I went into our bathroom that's off the master. The bedroom is set up a little odd because the wall that has our television doesn't have any power outlets so we had an extension cord plugged in that had yet to be put under the carpet. Silly me. I come out of the bathroom, flip the light out and my eyes hadn't adjusted. Needless to say, my foot got caught in the cord, I tripped and hit the ground. Now this is where it gets really interesting.

The next thing I know Beezy is on top of me touching my face trying to wake me up. Apparently, when I fell my head hit the end of the bed and I knocked myself out. Yep. Out cold! So when he heard the thump of me hitting the ground he didn't know what the noise was. He comes to the bedroom which is completely dark and finds me face down in the carpet. To say he was freaked out is an understatement. When I went down my knee apparently took a major hit cause it was very red and swollen. We even had to ice it.
 
After all of the excitement Friday night, Saturday was a breeze! I did wake up feeling very sore. I took it easy in the morning and sat down to take down the last of our Christmas decorations. I had taken everything down except our last tree, the Beach tree. Sadly, we wont get to see it again till next year. I'm pretty for sure Tesco was sad to see it come down because he loved sitting under and beside them.
 
We also went to his cousin's house and he played poker. Their kids have two tropical pet turtles that I'm obsessed with. I think they are the cutest little things! His cousin's wife was showing me everything they have to do for their glass case they live in and it's a ton of work! Because their tropical they have to keep it hot and humid so they have to spray it with water twice a day. They have to turn the lights off and on twice a day because they have differentiate night and day etc. It was a lot! I still think their super cute. I want one...

On Sunday, I went out and found my engagement party outfit! I was lucky enough to find a dress and shoes literally within 5 minutes of each other. I don't want to share my dress until the party but check out the shoes that I got to go with it...
Now it's back to another week of work!

Five on Friday

1.

Earlier in the week, I had to travel to West Los Angeles for work. This was my first work trip with my new job and it was interesting! I flew into the Burbank airport for the first time too and it was nice! I like it way more than LAX.

2. I want these shoes so bad for my wedding but their sold out everywhere not to mention their $995.00 If you know somewhere that isn't sold out, let me know!



3. I'm kind of in a rut with blogging. I feel like I don't know what to talk about anymore. At the same time there's all of these things I'd like to talk about but then when I sit down to write it the words just won't come out. Ugh.. hopefully this passes.

4. I got this movie for Christmas and I forgot how cute it was...
It had been a long time since I had last seen it. It's cute and funny. I know that Fran Dresher can really annoy some people but in this movie she was just right.

5. I'm dreaming of going on a great vacation. Dreaming is about all we can do right now lol.

Theater Thursday

It's Thursday and that can only mean one thing... it's Theater Thursday! This week's featured movie is, Honey I Shrunk the Kids.
Honey I Shrunk the Kids stars Rick Moranis as Wayne, the eccentric inventor. Wayne has been working on a new invention in his attic for months. When he's just about to give up, it unknowingly starts to work. The neighbor kids knock a baseball through the window and hits the machine. When Wayne's kids and the neighbor kids, Russ Jr. and Ron head up to the attic to find their baseball the machine turns on and works on the kids.
 
What does the machine do? It shrinks things! All four kids become smaller than an ant. When Wayne comes home and sees the baseball at the machine, he's so annoyed that it doesn't work he starts to break it. He mistakenly sweeps the kids into the trash and takes it out to the backyard for pick up. Now the kids must try to work their way back to the house which to them is about 3 miles away now due to their size.
 
Russ and his wife (the neighbors) start to worry about their two boys and why they haven't came home. Wayne and his wife start to wonder where their kids Amy and Nick are at. When they can't find any of them they start to try to put the pieces together. They realize that Wayne's invention really does work! Now the hunt is on for the kids. The kids though have their own battles to deal with before they can get back to the house.
 
The kids have giant rivers to deal with, large bees and even ants. The kids will have to cross their own jungle before they can get home and try to get back to normal size.
 
If you've never seen this classic... watch it!
