my main man

blogging has kind of been put on the backburner recently.
i've just been spending a lot of time with a certain boy..
he's pretty incredible.
i don't know if you've ever met him before?

my boyfriend harry.

expect me back in the blogosphere sometime soon.
or don't. 
i might start watching all the movies next.


day nine

this is just one aspect of my church's beliefs,
that after we die, we return to heaven, to live with our Heavenly Father. 
i know who i am, why i'm here, and where i am going.
i know that He won't test me beyond my abilities,
and, when it is to hard to endure alone, that He will comfort and understand me
better than anyone else. 
i know that my family will be together forever and someday, i will create my own eternal family.
i know that the gospel is true.


day eight (part two)

i turned on my light and what did i see?
kimberley in the kitchen, staring at me.

 it was a nice way to start the morning.

day eight

how many people have had the opportunity to play on a slide made completely of ice?
i have :)


day seven

my best friends, old and new.

(if you're reading this and feeling offended because you're not on here..sorry! it doesn't mean you don't mean anything to me :) )






julianna and julie

carrie and jessica



carrie (again..i love this picture lol.)
honorable mention: emily
(haha. just kidding.)
megan (ps happy birthday to you! spaz.)


day six

my (yester)day:

-me and some girls from school put on an oral hygiene presentation for a third grade class. they were freakin' cute. the kids i mean, but my classmates are pretty good lookin' too. uh...

-i spent some quality time with the boyfriend harry. (potter, that is..) i'm rereading the series and i definitely forgot how much i adore it. it's time well wasted people. much like my blog. ha.

-i ate lots of nutella.

sorry to bore you to tears..but that was honestly and truly my day yesterday. why did i pick yesterday to do the "my day" post about? because today was unremarkable, so much so that i can't remember what happened.

well. have a good one.


one day..

i have this thing where i tend to ignore advice, i prefer find out for myself.
i've heard mixed reviews about utah life from my soab friends..
i'd like to try it out..
like really, reeaaaaally badly.
anyone have a couch that i could camp out on for like..a month?

(leave your thoughts about utah below! please.)


day five

love is:

when they realize truly how strange you are and want to be with you anyway.

being able to sit in silence and not feel awkward.

feeling completely comfortable with someone when you're not wearing any makeup.

crying yourself to sleep, at least once.

wanting to spend every second with someone.

being with someone that makes you a better person.


something that lasts forever, even if it fades.


day four

so..i really don't think anyone really cares what i ate today..but for the lack of anything better to do, i'll tell ya!

  1. two pieces of gum (yeah, i swallow my gum, big whoop)
  2. sidekicks (i jazzed it up with green beans, cheddar cheese, and garlic salt. i guess you could say i'm a homemaker)
  3. a box of chocolate almonds (don't worry, there were only like 17)
  4. rice with broccoli, carrots, ground beef, snap peas with sweet soy sauce (my roomie brigitte is a miracle worker)
  5. four chocolate cookies (also from brigitte..)
i love me some food! 

let's remember how beautiful we are,
where we come from,
who's daughters we actually are.
let's remember that beauty is in the eye of the beholder,
that we don't need to conform to the world's idea of beauty.
let's remember that loving yourself is more important than a trim waistline, long and silky hair, or the perfect pair of shoes.
let's remember to accept ourselves, flaws and all, because that's the key to true beauty.



day three

these people are my best friends.
they make me laugh harder than any of my friends and
they understand me pretty well.
they talk to me like an adult.
they've taught me of the importance of the gospel,
and helped me become who i am today.
 dad makes the best popcorn and mom is just a crazy irish girl.
i love you guys.


becky through the ages

in honour of me and my twentieth birthday
i put those post together as my gift to you.
celebrate me, with me.

so much sass!

adolescence treated me well.

this one honestly leaves me speechless. and that doesn't happen very often!

i make arizona look gooood

i guess two words that describe my feet are dainty and feminine. 

contrary to popular belief, i did have hair in this photo.

i'm pretty sure i never went through an awkward phase.

 the mother and i at the ripe old age of 12.

i had school spirit apparently.

my father is slouching, i'm definitely not taller than him lol.

just waitin' on the stairs with my long hair and skinny legs on christmas morning.

this photo preeeetty much sums me up at the age of fifteen.

thank you for commemorating me, celebrating me, and falling in love with me. 
i'm pretty great, aren't i?

*note that this post is completely, 100% satirical. duh.

day two

in high school i wasn't a believer in love.
it couldn't be done, not while one was so young and foolish and inexperienced.
you changed my mind.
you made me believe.
you were a lot of things to me then.
first boy
first date
first cuddle
first kiss
first boyfriend
first love
first heartbreak

you're only one thing now.
my first regret.


day one

i'm becky.
the tall, freckly, strawberry blonde one.

i'm one giant contradiction.
i love music and silence too.
i like clothes and makeup and hair and rugby and basketball and volleyball.
i'm confident with who i am but sometimes i'm unsure.
i'm friendly and outgoing and social and sometimes an introvert.
i'm not afraid of being alone, yet i'm terrified of being lonely.
i'm pretty much a nerd but i can be pretty cool too.
i'm passionate but indecisive.
i speak my mind too much, but have a hard time standing up for myself.
i'd like to not care what others say about me, but i care very much.
i can be completely comfortable in one situation and cripplingly awkward in another.
i'm an enthusiastic person although i shy away from exclamation you can't tell.

i like:
parks and recreation
30 rock
arrested development
athletic activities
bright colours
vintage things
black and white photographs
my friends and family
laughing till i cry

stick with me kids..this is only the beginning.

a few things

ask me if i want a pair of BCGs. (the answer is a resounding yes. but not for the birth control properties, just cause i like them. just to clarify.)

pretty sure i've expressed how much i love this before..but once more never hurt anyone. right?

have you seen fantastic mr. fox? because it wins at life. what did you think about it?

i'm just lovin' the links today.

awkward picture from my youth?

 my appetite is out of control lately. no complaining from me though, i love me some food.

i thought edmonton wasn't supposed to be windy? or warm?



i took this test and got this result.



i can't help but to feel that something big is about to happen.
maybe it's just because of the new year, the opportunity to start again, to turn over a new leaf,
but really. my life is going to change, for good or bad, i don't know yet.
i can feel it in my bones.

ice-cavin maven

yeah, that title just happened.

dad's hat hair is reaaaal nice


nate has real issues with keeping his eyes open haha.

the most beautiful place in the world

campfire dinners!

my pops

 who knew he was so photogenic?


 did you know that a styrofoam cup only melts down to the water level? i sure didn't.

we actually didn't end up sleeping in our cave..the snow was too tough to make a decent cave for four people. it was fun to spend time with the men in the fam regardless :)



  1. to go to the temple as often as possible.
  2. to be nicer.
  3. to expand my love for and knowledge of the gospel.
  4. to take more pictures.
  5. to stop swearing.

let's see how this goes people. 
happy new year :)
