my knight in shining armor

my big sister brooke has a best friend.  her name is courtney.  she is the gorgeous blonde mommy in the picture above... compliments of the facebook.  her husband's name is shaune and they are two of the greatest people i know.  these are their adorable boys- caden and dexter.  
courtney is one of the kindest, most giving people i know.  when she and shaune found out that i needed to get to vegas to catch a flight to ny, courtney jumped at the chance to drive me to the airport.  not only that, but with caden- 4 and dexter- 2 along for the ride, she drove me to vegas (arriving at about 11:30 thursday night), stayed there until midnight the next day and drove me back to st. george on friday night so i could make it back in time for rehearsal the next day.  we got back home about 3am saturday morning and courtney was up at about 5:30 that morning to go for a long run (she's training to qualify for the boston marathon).  as if that wasn't enough, she also brought me some delicious truffles with a sweet note to help me get through my 2am-2pm annie rehearsal on saturday.  
courtney, you are my hero!  thank you for always being so interested in my life.  i had so much fun talking with to on the way home from the airport.  you are amazing! my new goal in life is to be like you when i grow up.  


  1. You are too sweet. Anytime you need a ride for your big dreams, just call "The Big Boat from St. G", the truffles and stunning blonde are complimentary with your ticket :) It was SSSOOOO fun to catch up!! I love you forever (pronounced: FOR-eh-VER-er) :)

  2. I second everything that Becca said in this article. Courtney you are amazing and we all idolize you! Thanks for being so cool and making us more popular : )

  3. We were gonna get you a scooter for trips like that :)

  4. Hey Becca! I didn't know you were in the broadway scene! That is awesome! I love the show legally blonde and I actually saw it on the second row next to the parents of the "understudy" on her first debut weekend. It was awesome! You may have already read it, but if you haven't you should read< "A little bit Wicked" by Kristen Chenoweth. It was a lot of fun to read and I sure you would get a kick out of it since you are just entering the NY scene. Good luck! I will be rooting for you!!
