Memories, Part 2

Right before we left Utah, a bunch of friends and I went out one last time as a birthday/going away outing, and they took turns sharing a "Rebecca Moment." (Weren't you there Chelsea?) It was so interesting to hear what they remembered the most. Most were funny ("I'll never forget when you were chasing Brendan, who was completely naked and had poop all down his leg, through the neighborhood"), and a few were sweet, but the thing that they all had in common was that they were all things that I wouldn't have necessarily remembered on my own. Or things that I don't pick up on as a personality trait: "You could always tell when Rebecca was out in the hall at church because you could hear her laugh throughout the building." The way I view myself is alot different than the way others do. Sometimes worse, sometimes better, but always different.
In any case, these are for you, Kasey Ryan (or Boone. Sorry - you'll always be Kasey Ryan to me). Try to ignore the funky "cropped" shapes that aren't so scanner friendly. These are from a Pismo Beach Band Review circa 1989 (8th grade). There's the infamous "Pete" behind me on the right. Rachel Howard, Amber Elite, me and you. I think that Amber is still in Clovis somewhere (married to Chris Garcia). Any of you East Stake girls know her?? I had to include this one for Gwen - Jason Master doin' his "homie" pose. Classic. This is for Benjamin. Yes, I do remember getting lots of "don't we look alike" photos, but this is the only one I could find. It was when I was visiting for Christmas from Maryland, so that would mean I just had turned 18, which would've put you around 10 years old. It's funny to think that I hadn't really met Roger yet, but in about 6 weeks I would be engaged. Ahhh, how time flies.


  1. OH MY GOSH!!!!! I will tease him FOREVER!!! Thank you Rebecca!

  2. OOOOHHHH NOOOOO!!!!!!!!! LOL!!!!
    Okay, ITS SOOOO ON now "Becky" :)

    That was CRAZY to see the infamous "Pete" again!! Wow that was a loooong time ago!

    Great post!

  3. Wow, now that I look at the first image more clearly, Heidi was in that pic too! That was my first girlfriend!! LOL!!

  4. Hello Rebecca. This is your old side kick from the Fig Garden Ward. I am still in clovis, being home taught by your cousing Paul, and having fun reading your blog. Yes, that Amber Garcia is still in east stake, clovis 3rd ward with Paul and Krista, me, and of course the Ryan clan. I will have to let her know about the picture and let her write to you. It is always amazing how small this world is. Have a great day!

  5. yup, thats what i remember! =)

  6. Auuughhhhhh! I can't believe those pictures! What fun. I am so thoroughly thrilled that you posted them. (And impressed you could find them while moving.)

    We were stylish, yes?

    I've been caught up in all sorts of unimportant things (like helping Paris job hunt and being a mommy) and have neglected the blogs. This made my week. Thanks.

  7. Oh, and while you are no doubt wise, you'll always be Becky Phillips to me, too.

    Or was it Becki or Beckee or Bekie or something...Remember how we yearned to be different? Funny.
