5 Things I've Learned From Becca

Everyone wants your advice.

Or so the unstated philosophy of my family goes.  They have a catch phrase that precedes any tidbits of advice that they will push on you, solicited or not.  It goes: If there is one thing I've learned in my life...

In honor of them [and unsolicited advice everywhere], I've created the Five Things I've Learned... series on this blog.

Be prepared to be amazed by the unsolicited tidbits of life-learning I will pass on to you.

5 Things I've Learned...

From Becca

1. Nail care is an art. 

Seriously, guys, Becca has mastered the art of nails. It baffles me. I can count the number of times I've painted my nails on one hand. Courtesy of Becca, I'm currently sporting these colors. Well, the green at least. A certain newborn prevented us from finishing with the lovely sparkles.

2. How to talk your way into discounts.

If you don't believe me, hang out with Becca and you'll stand in awe of her skills. I'm pretty sure she could convince anyone into just about anything.  She has perfected garage sale-ing into a work of genius that would amaze the best dealers-and-wheelers. Not lying, she's had stores pay her to take their product. Now that is just impressive.

3. How to quilt.

I've never been a girly-girl. And generally speaking, I loathe all things domestic. Yet, somehow, Becca with her amazing talk-anyone-into-anything skills convinced me to learn to quilt. And I have. And I love it. I'm officially WAY more obsessed with quilting than she has ever been.

4. How to take an awesome selfie.

This photo speaks for itself. Who can best this?

5. That laughter can be found in the most unexpected places.

Being around Becca means discovering humor anywhere. She has such a sharp mind and wit that she'll leave you rolling and your eyes balling from the funny and the whimsy and the comical and the brilliant  that she finds in the world.

This girl rocks.
