To Summer




Music Obsessions:
Noah and the Whale

Panic! At the Disco


Funny Story:

When I was a child, there was a certain movie that I watched ALL the time. 

I watched it at least 5 times a day. Now that I look back, I realize that it's made me who I am today! Literally. That's crazy, right? Well, I'll explain. Whenever I would tell people about it, they never knew what it was. I had no idea why until this Sunday when we were all chillin as a family and we started talking about it. This movie was a British children's show written by Princess Fergie. Holy cow! That is why I've ALWAYS been in love with all things British, and why I'm good at British accents, and probably why I have such a dry sense of humor. I mean, honestly, I've always loved British things and have always wanted to go to Great Britain...last year, I even woke up at 4:00AM to watch the Royal Wedding. Anywho, on Sunday, my brother and sister and I decided to watch this movie. It was sooooo lame! It was amazing! I can't believe that I would watch it repetitively as a child. OUTSTANDING! I also think that this could be the reason why I don't usually like things that everybody else likes. I like to like my own things. Make sense? I don't know. (That is all true, until it comes to One Direction. I'm weird....)

PS) If you don't know who Princess Fergie is, you'd probably recognize her daughters because they were at the royal wedding and they looked...well....just take a gander at these hats:
And, while we're talking about British Royalty, let's just take a moment to look at Prince Harry:

And, Obviously:
Alright...that's it. Cause, I could go on and on with this one...
Yesterday, Bailey and  I watched the Up All Night Tour DVD and...let's just say that there were far too many emotions to even discuss. Our boys are just too lovely. I just...can't.

Let the good times ROLL

Summer is officially here! Finals are over! Ever since I finished my last test I've been like this:

Peace out!

This is just to say...

Yesterday was an amazing day that reminded me that summer is coming! It consisted of the following:
1. Jamming to One Direction.
2. Deep cleaning the Stake Center.
3. Having a silent auction and eating good food.
4. Going home and cleaning some more.
5. Going to the Color Festival.(Funny story, I didn't have time to shower after the color festival so I didn't even shower until this morning. It was awful.)
6. Sitting on a sidewalk by Kiwi Loco saying outrageous things to passersby.
7. Going to dinner with my family.
8. Going to Taylor's new house and watching Pride and Prejudice, the Mormon, modern day, hilarious version.
9. Going home and tweeting Bailey a million times.
10. Going to sleep.
It was a lovely day and it was nice to get a lot of sun. SUMMER IS COMING!!! I'm extremely excited!

Now, on a different note, let me just say, I have the best mother in the world. BIG shout-out to her, this fine Mothers' Day. Mom, you're the greatest person ever and you've taught me a lot of things in my life. I can't even tell you how grateful I am for all that you do. Happy Mothers' Day!

Just a few little things

I'd be rich if I had a nickel for every time I heard the following:
-You laugh a lot.
-I love your laugh.
-I hate your laugh.
-You laugh at everything, even if it's not funny.
-You make me feel like I'm funnier than I really am because you laugh at everything.

This week I was sitting in seminary with a killer headache and then this lovely freshman boy walked up to me and said, "Becca, we're all here for you," and he said it in sort of a teasing voice and I kinda laughed a little, because this boy hardly ever talks to me! So the fact that he noticed that I was in such pain, made me really glad. Then he said, "Do you want a piece of gum?" and I kid you not, that completely made my entire day. I told everybody about it because I thought that it was the nicest thing ever. I'm telling you, sometimes the simplest of things can bring the greatest of joy.

Today, church was great. I love my young women's leader, Sister Kinslow. She gave such a great lesson today and I always enjoy her lessons. She is such a good teacher.

I LOVE my family. They are the greatest! Today we got to celebrate my grandma's 83rd birthday. She is the cutest and I'm so glad that she was born! She is so great and she is the funniest person that I know! She's great. In fact, my grandpa says, "Every night, Grandma gives me a kiss before she goes to sleep and I say, 'do you really wanna kiss this ugly face?' and she says, 'I close my eyes.'" Haha. She is wonderful! So, a BIG shout out to her! :)

Anywho, I hope that you've had a wonderful Sabbath. I know that I sure have. Perhaps it is because I woke up this morning and read the New Era. It was so good! It's a good reminder that there are so many good things and resources that we have today to learn more about our Savior and the atonement and I'm glad that we have a living prophet today that can tell us what our Heavenly Father wants us to do. I'm also glad that we have prayer so that we can also receive personal revelation and know what our Heavenly Father wants us to do. Love you all! GOODNIGHT. :)

I have five minutes before my internet turns off. So this will be short.

This has been a really good week. It's been really nice to me, except for the fact that I'm really missing my sleep! WHERE HAVE YOU GONE, SLEEP?!?!?!?! 
Oh well, I'll try to get caught up. Tonight. That's why I should go to sleep now.

I LOVE the civil wars. They have the best harmonies and they just kill me! LOVE!!

So good! I adore them!

Peace out, friends.
