Fun Times With The Beckers

All the fun, even if it's not always blogged…

Beyonce Sighting! — October 8, 2011

Beyonce Sighting!

oh my gosh… please tell me you know about Beyonce The Giant Metal Chicken?

if not, i urge you to go here, right now, and read all about it. then, you will know what i mean when i say, i saw Beyonce and i want him!

you may also friend him on facebook, here.


and now, you should understand exactly how excited i was when i saw Beyonce, on the side of the road, at a store called “Adobe Designs” in Loveland, CO.

yes, i made AJ stop so i could take a picture.

i originally envisioned standing next to him and getting a good shot, for prosperity’s sake, of course.

but, it was 9:25am, and they didn’t open until 10:00. and, there was this sign out front that said something to the effect of, “Anyone who stops in our driveway to take a picture will be fined $75.00.”

well, i was admittedly a little Chicken Sh!t, so i could only muster this from my phone:

Beyonce’s in all sizes and colors, and all sorts of gaudy painted metal fun. oh, how i want one.

for V-Day, AJ got me a Pre-Natal Massage.

it was scheduled for last night.




if you are in the lincoln-area, i can give you Kirsten’s information. I also have a friend named, Johnny, that does a great job too. (and if you are in OKC, please go see my buddy TERRA!… i’ll get you her digits!)

this was amazing. i feel great. (not that i was feeling bad, mind you!)… and already scheduled another one for next month.

i am pumped!

Photo Fantastics! — February 16, 2010

Photo Fantastics!

in case you haven’t yet spent hours of your life drooling over Khara’s awesome photography skillz here, then i’ll give you a moment……………..

I LOVE THIS STUFF. but mostly, I love Khara! she’s just awesome, and exudes happiness, funkiness and all around fun!

so i was oh-so-pumped, last week, to receive an email in my Facebook inbox asking me to doll up myself, bring The Boy and prepare for a super fun, top-secret time! All she could say was that we should dress as if we were going to attend the swankiest Wedding Reception around.

She needed us from 7-9pm on a Tuesday evening. Aside from hindering our usual bedtime of late (ahem, 7:58 p.m.), we gussied ourselves up as best as one can at 22-weeks in utero (i.e. a well-placed cardigan can hide the fact that your dress doesn’t want to zip the last four inches!), and got our party faces on.

here are my most faves of the night:
Fist Pumpin’

The official naming of “The Bumpit”

Rock, Paper, Scissors: he beat me, Best 2 out of 3!

My Bestie!

yeah, that’s about right.

and here’s a link to the swanky slideshow of all the pics of some people you may or may not know!

Khara was kind enough to post these High Res images online for a brief moment for us to steal before she took them away again as to not give away her ultimate Top Secret plans for the whole escapade (i am very much awaiting the day she finally announces what all this is for)… but in the meantime, i am supremely happy to accept the fact that she gave us a FREE photo shoot for the night… and i have already told her that i will be in desperate need of fitting into her crazy shooting schedule at various times over the course of The Bumpit’s first year.


so worth the share — December 7, 2009

so worth the share

i am a big, fat fan of the show, So You Think You Can Dance!

though the elimination night is stressful (thank goodness for DVR so i can speed through the riff raff), i always look forward to the group dance at the beginning and the featured dance by a new artist or featuring a new style.

Last week’s show did not disappoint in the “new” feature. if you haven’t seen this, here you go:

Legion of Extraordinary Dancers

i have been watching over and over and overandoverandover… LOVE!!! it doesn’t hurt that it’s choreographed to one of my most favorite songs ever, in a very moving arrangement!
