Yesterday Jenielle and I did a backyard photo shoot with our girls–because what’s more fun than dressing our babies up and putting them in front of the camera?

My Weekend:

March 10, 2008

Friday night I went up to West Hollywood to celebrate Melinda’s day of birth with some of her amazing girlfriends.




I brought Sprinkles Cupcakes for dessert.

Saturday was such a beautiful day, we decided to have a picnic at the beach.

That last picture is incredible. I love Berlyn trying to figure out what’s in the hat, and the quality is so film-like — love it.

A Thousand Deaths


March 9, 2008

The clocks are set back. In my house we don’t half-ass the time change: nay, we embrace it as if it we were tourists in a foreign country trying our best to assimilate. We eat couscous with our hands, for-go toilet paper, and ride the Darjeeling Express while smoking a hand-rolled cigarette.
I sneak around the house when everyone is asleep and flip all the clocks forward. I’d like to think of myself as a beautiful clock nymph, bouncing from appliance to appliance, protecting those in my house from an embarrassing time-telling folly. I put on my silky white robe, ballet slippers, and my sassy leg-warmers, and at lightening-speed (ZING-ZA-DAN!) the clocks are all set one hour ahead. It’s a gift, a special gift from heaven, that I am able to do it so seamlessly–so effortlessly. I even flip the clocks ahead in the cars! No stone unturned.
So please, dear friends of mine, I urge you to do the same, because I will die a thousand deaths inside if I get in your car or pour coffee from your coffee machine and it says 11:59, but it’s really 12:59.

Sprinkles Cupcakes

1 Comment

February 25, 2008

I went to Sprinkles for the first time and had myself a red velvet cupcake–it was good, but all the hype surrounding the cupcake shop was better. There was a line that wrapped all the way around the front of the store, and I was all, “Really? All this for a cupcake?” And the lady behind me was like, “yep, really.”


Jenielle came with me and had the Vanilla cupcake to the right.
Berlyn apparently likes cupcakes. She kept digging her fingers into it and smearing it on her face, occasionally getting it in her mouth.

sprinkles is just alright for me. i agree: “all this for a cupcake…”
id like the small cake to be 2 dollars less and taste two times as good. then i would wait in line regularly. until then, sprinkles can have its cake and eat it too.

We spent some time with Ryan and Samantha Walton this weekend. They are pretty neat people who inspire us. The short time we spent with them got me thinking about how important friends are in my life.

So if you’re my friend, pretend like I’m giving you a warm fuzzy hug right now and know that I appreciate you. And if you’re not my friend, then you should really work on that, because I’m a heck of a lot of fun.





(and for whatever reason, I’m always on the right side of the photo…I guess I know my good-side)

Go to Found


It was so great to see you this weekend. We wish it could have been longer. I hope you will be able to find a way to Sacramento when you travel north in the summer. We love you and your family and are so thankful for your friendship.

You have lots of (pretty) friends. Also, this is crazy: I knew Jenielle when I lived in Irvine for 2 years of high school! I remember she was really nice to me (the newbie) and lots of fun. We went to the same church. Bizarre! How is she? How do you guys know each other and how long have you been friends?

Jenielle’s husband Chris expressed that he wanted me to write something about him on my blog.

With the help from my 1962 Thorndike-Barhart Junior Dictionary I will formulate an acrostic to describe the many attributes of Chris.

C is for Czechoslovakian which Chris is NOT, but he is Polish, which is very close to Czechoslovakia.


H is for hurlyburly which means noisy disorder and confusion. It is a word that I have never heard of before, and since Chris loves to learn, hopefully he’s never heard of it before either.

R is for rivet which are found on jeans, and Chris wears jeans.


I is for infant, because he has a baby

S is for stalagmite, and that’s a fun word to say.

There you go Chris, I hope you like it.



I love my husband.

you are the best, Chris 🙂

by Jenielle Krusiewicz on January 28, 2008

i have never heard the word hurly burly. i like it and think i will use it more.

thanks for the shout out beckey…

I got an iphone!


January 26, 2008

I’ve never had anything this cool before. I’m afraid that I’m not worthy. I love it already. Thank you Pat for loving me so strongly that your love compelled you to buy me an iphone, even if that means we can’t eat food for the next 12 days–totally worth it.


Jenielle got one too…


and so did Pat.


It was as if iphones were raining from the sky.


Hi Beckey,

This is Lori, Dionne’s Best Friend, I just want you to know that you are so funny and I so wish I had your way with words, and since I have known you since you were but a wee one , I know that I should not be surprised because you have always been witty. Congratulations on such a wonderful Marraige and a Beautiful baby girl, Would you mind if I listed you as one of my links on my Blog?

Take Care, See you at a party sometime, God the Runyons Can party!



by Lori Garbarino on January 27, 2008

I have an iPod touch, but my husband just got the iPhone. I think I’m jealous.

Apples to Apples

January 21, 2008

Last night my brother and his girlfriend Amanda came over with sugary snacks and a hankerin’ to play Apples to Apples. If you have not heard of this game you should go to your local Target, buy it, and buy some Milk Duds, Chips Ahoy, and Triscuts, and then come over to our house and play with us.
Last night we learned that steak and potatoes, discovering America, and Tom Cruise are all responsible and ear wax and cockroaches are chewy…and that China is so in right now.

We had such a great time with you! We spent most of yesterday remembering that the Vatican is sensual, driving off a cliff is bold, and that the top of a roller coaster is revolutionary.
