My Life in a Nut Shelf

So today I started packing up my apartment getting ready to move back home for the summer. It's really sad leaving here. I love this place a lot.

The part that was the hardest to pack was my shelf in my bedroom. Almost everything on it is a story waiting to be told. Every story is a great event of my life. So I took a picture. I guess I have a thing for antique artifacts and maybe these will be some someday.  If you know me well you should be able to guess what lots of these things are. If not, enjoy the stories and you'll know lots more by the time your done.

1. A poem my mom and dad gave me on the day of my baptism. It's called "Three White Dresses" Its really pretty. It's about the Baby Blessing dress, the baptism dress and the temple wedding dress. The three most important dresses you'll wear.

2. The Atlanta Braves hat I got on my 18th birthday when Logan's family took me to the game in Georgia. So much fun!! Best birthday ever!!!!

3. The photo of my cheer squad when we won first place at Nationals in 2009. It has the gold medal I got hanging down from it. It also has the signatures of all my friends on the squad that year.

4. Me and Logan's prom picture from my Junior year in high school. I can't believe it's been two years since we went to prom. It was such a fun day.

5. Kay, so if you know me well you will know that my favorite prince is Prince Phillip. When I saw this on my 2010 Spring Break vacation with my family last year in Disney Land, I had to have it. It wasn't until after we got home that I realized if you put it in front of our prom picture and look at it through the right angle, it aligns perfectly with me and Logan. Her dress is even the same color as mine. I love it!

6. I don't remember exactly when these were taken, but it was sometime last summer when me and Logan went to Boondocks. We were so crazy and hyper that day. I remember we went mini golfing while we were there and I totally cheated. I always cheat at mini golf because if I don't the game lasts forever. I did make a few holes in one though.

7. These are also from Boondocks. Only that time me and Log went it was our last date before he left on his mission. It was a bittersweet day. We tried to have fun the best that we can but we knew that that day would be our last hug and our last date and our last kiss. It was hard to be silly. We did manage to battle it out in laser tag and Logan won big time. that was a hard day.

8. This is my ticket from the 2010 National Championship Football game. I still can't believe I was actually there. What an amazing game it was. It was definitely a nail biter and I was so incredibly happy that Auburn won. What a great day. It was so much fun to experience that and go with Logan and his fam.

9. This just shows how amazing my roommate is. These are the roses that Logan gave me on Valentines day only a week before he left. I loved them, but I hated that I had them because I knew that by the time they died that Logan would be gone. I left for the week to be with Log and I begged my roommates to not let them die because they would be all I had left of Log when he was gone. I came home and they were gone. I was so upset. I thought someone threw them out. I guess it turns out my roommate had taken and dried them so that they wouldn't die. I love them. I love you Hallie! Thank you for letting my roses live forever!

10. These are tickets won at boondocks on the same day as number seven. I guess me and logan were too wrapped up with the situation and trying to make the best of the day that we forgot to cash in the tickets we won. Just another memory of the good times me and Logan had.

11. These are seashells I bought when me and Logan went to his beach house in Florida. That beach was amazing. I wish I could go back to those days and lay out in the sand again with him.

12. There are two special seashells I wanted to point out. The white one is one Logan brought back with him after leaving me to go to Alabama. We decided to keep it protected and the most special no matter what. We share it back and forth. It is a symbol that represents the fact that me and Logan want to stay pure and white so we can go to the Temple one day.
The second shell is tiny and blue. I found it that day we spent on the beach. It is gorgeous. I need a close up. I found it hidden right by the entrance to the beach in the sand. It's amazing and bright blue.

13. So  I love new York and especially Ellis Island. I could spend days at that place. This is a mask I bought on the trip with my school drama department to New York on Ellis Island. I wore it as part of my butterfly costume this last Halloween.

14. A colonge bottle of Acqua Di Gio. Logan's last present to me. This way I can spray it and remember him. I spray it on his hoodies that he gave me and sleep with them.

15. In this box I keep all the amazing beautiful letters that I get from my brother in Ventura, California and my bestest friend Logan. It's better than any treasure chest I know of.

16. It's hard to see, but this is a little card with writing on it. I already packed it and can't remember what it says. My friend and roommate Kate gave it to me for valentines day. It was super super sweet.

17. It's really funny actually that I still have this silly thing. On our trip to the National Championship we went to eat at Rainforest Cafe. For dessert we got a chocolate volcano cake. I guess fireworks are illegal in arizona so instead they put this thing in the middle. I insisted on taking it home because it reminded me of a magic wand. Logan made fun of me so much for this. He kept stealing it from me and trying to take it away because I was acting like a silly little kid carrying it with me everywhere. Good old funny times.

Well thats the end of my book shelf. It's all packed away now and that is sad. I will have to find a place to put it all back home. It had way more stuff about Logan than I thought. Sorry I guess I should name this blog "Becca Soup: Logan Flavored" I feel like he is all that I ever write about. I really love him.

Well anyways thats all. I hope you like my short stories.

The Reasons Why I'm Waiting...

Many people in this world (maybe 2-3) Are wondering if I am waiting for Logan on his mission. Of all those people I am guessing about 0% will actually read this post. So I will post it anyways :) (Disclaimer: if you don't enjoy love stories or cute things and will make fun of this...(mom) then this is your warning)

The answer is an enduring yes I am. I am glad my curious fans still don't know that now.

Well he just so happened to get down on one knee about two months before he left and asked me to be with him forever. (really cute!!) Then even cuter was that he bought me a ring. An amazing beautiful ring (see below for picture). I promised that I would be with him forever and I would be there when he gets home. I also promised to treat the ring as if we were engaged and he promised me a diamond when he returns to the United States. He is such a sweetheart.  I miss him a lot. I love him very much and write him all the time.

Well anyways, today I made a list of all the reasons that I have to wait for him. I sent it to him in a letter and I thought it would be a fun thing to share. So here it is, some are serious and some are silly. Read and enjoy!. It's written as if I were saying it to Logan so yeah...

 All the reasons I should wait for you.

  1. I really really really love you with all my heart (this is the best reason)
  2. You give the best hugs in the world
  3. No other boys can be trusted (I think you've brainwashed me good on that one.)
  4. Your family is the best ever and they are depending on me, they already think I'm part of the fam.
  5. Um... you took me to Disney world. If any other boy wanted to even come close, they would have to at least do that :)
  6. You know too much about me and I'm very afraid of black mail lol
  7. I couldn't stand to see you with anybody else.
  8. I really really love you.
  9. I have to pay you back somehow for all the money you and your family spend on me. I am in serious debt lol.
  10. I'm afraid Caleb will find me with his taser if I don't... and maybe a sniper too.
  11. I already know we can make it through fights and hard times in our lives, you've helped me through it all. 
  12. I think your mom has already started planning the wedding
  13. Because Auburn won the national championship and I got to witness it with you first hand!
  14. My little sisters need somebody to tease and beat up  
  15. You gave me like half of your stuff to watch until you get back, I can't just steal it all.
  16. I owe Heavenly Father two years without dating since I started dating at fourteen when I wasn't supposed to
  17. Rylie is counting on us
  18. If I dated anyone else my brother couldn't scare them to death until he got home. Anyone I date needs to feel threatened by my brother first. 
  19. There are girls who want to wait for their missionary one day looking to me as an example, (I know because I used to do that)
  20. I don't want to spend the rest of my life wondering what would have been
  21. The only reason you went on your mission is because you knew I would wait for you.
  22. I really love you so so so much
  23. I made a promise and you gave me a ring. (If I can't keep that promise how am I supposed to ever keep a marital vow)

Well If anybody has anymore great reasons to add to the list feel free to share. And in case your wondering I would still wait for him even if we only had reason number one. The others just make it easier. 

p.s. Here are pictures of the ring he gave me....

All Set for Sophomore Year!

Today I found my home for next year and registered for my classes. My new apartment is tiny and old but it has a cute sort of charm. I wanted to find a cheap place to live so I could buy myself a nice new car!!!!!
Here it is...

Just kidding... I wish!

Here it is for real...

As for cars I'm looking for a crossover. Can't wait to find one!
This is what I had in mind...... maybe in my dreams

My schedule goes as follows....
Advertising Porfolio Class
New Testament
Media Law

And those are all the men who will chase after me at the end of the semester because of my awesome new skills that I will have to turn down because I am waiting for Logan. Logan is way better than all these men combined... Well don't count Christ in that. He is with me no matter what... the other boys don't have a chance. 

Hopefully my Italian and Ballet classes will even out the terribleness of Law and Biology. 

Can't wait to start Sophomore Year!!
