Everything is Awful

no.. not really.

Okay okay! Tv off, ipod on, and no excuses! According to my big brother my blog has been lacking. "You haven't posted since September 11!" Thanks Skot I know. I'm trying. I'm busy. School. I work. Okay Becki you can shut up now. (yep that was in third person) Just so everyone knows, my oldest brother is the one who said he would proof read my blog. He's very smart. I'm not very smart. I dont like to proof read. I'm sure everyone who reads this knows that already. You ladies get the jist.

Now that everything is back to normal I would like to say I will try to start blogging regularly. Although I have never been regular. I was going to make this a double blog but now I would like you to actually read what I have to say for one. Honesly, I'm more of a picture girl. I dont always read what other bloggers have to say. I'm sure some of you are like that too.

With that, here is a song I would like everyone to here. My boyfriend is very good at finding band that we both end up loving. Try to ignore the video. I'm not really a fan but this band is pretty awesome!
Becki Boo!

All the small things

A few little reasons why watercolor is my major! Since my first day of class I cant stop thinking about it. I think its love...






Update Smupdate

A week from yesterday I had some work done on my sleeve. An I'm so in love. Its just outline but everyone love a tattoo preview. Right now its just about done flaking and is so very itchy. I added a (not so) little squirrel, caterpillar, and spider web. I wish I took a picture of my amazing artist Jen Trok while she was tattooing me. She oddly reminds me of Miss Zooey Deschanel. In opposite land. Anyways, I cant wait for color!

Then the next day we had Mikes fathers wedding. It was a very small simple wedding but I was doing the flowers. That made me VERY nervous. I'd say they turned out pretty well. I bought the "broach" at the antique shop with my cute little poodle. The owner said its actually a broach that is sewn on to a fur coat. I must go back to show her photos. Shes a hoot.

 Silly photos from the reception.

Finally, I started school on Tuesday. The summer was great but I was excited to get back to drawing every day. I'm scared about a few classes but excited about some others. I'm taking Life Drawing, Math (yuck), a kind of Speech class, and WATERCOLOR. I'm so happy about watercolor. This is the first step of my major. And every little thing that I learn is so exciting for me. Of course I will post any project I do.
