Happy 11110th (1Eth) Birthday, Becky!

 Becky New Year!

 

Today is Becky’s birthday. You know Becky. If you don’t think you know Becky, you’re wrong. Who doesn’t know Becky? And who doesn’t think she’s a phenomenal human being? Her network of friends is strong here in New York City, and it extends into the rest of our country, and even across the pond. And the world. She’s that awesome. Even more, if that’s possible. Here are just a few birthday testimonials and wishes from friends and family:  
 
 
 
 
 
 
       
Becky, what can I say to my best friend that I haven’t already told you or that you couldn’t easily figure out with the quickest of sideways glances or the slightest shift in body language? Thank you for inducting me early on into Members Only? Thank you for being my wingman? Thank you for being my synchronized popcorn-eating partner? Thank you for playing Guitar Hero “like that”? Thank you for taking a long time to recognize Fergie’s “Big Girls Don’t Cry” on the radio? Thank you for having awesome Captain Caveman club calves and walking fast and making me lengthen my stride?  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Sure, I’ll start with Thank You.  
You are the bombshell that turns the others into shrapnel.  You’ve got it all. Still, your covetable height and awesomely curly hair and even your immense intelligence shrink in comparison to what profound goodness your heart holds. You inspire me. You’re always striving, working tirelessly to be a better person in every way. My time in New York City has been the funnest and richest of my life because that has also been the time you put into our friendship. Thank you for encouraging me, cheering me up, putting up with me at times, discussing deep things with me, cutting through traffic, blazing trails, reminding me of who I am. Thank you for being there. Thank you for being born.  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Love, may  
       
Becky! You are hilarious and beautiful, a great combo. Have a wonderful birthday! You rock~ Michelle  
 
   
Happy Birthday Becky!  I always enjoyed eating cake batter, quoting P & P and learning french with you.  Hope this year is the best yet! Michelle  
 
   
Becky,  
Happy happy birthday!  You’re still looking smokin’ hot at 30!

Hey Becks! What would I do without your snarkiness. You have always been a reliable friend and you never cease to surprise me. Thanks also for checking in on my life often. I’m glad I’ve been able to know you. Heart, Brooke m.  
 
 
 
   
A Birthday Poem for Becky:  
There once was a girl named Becky.  
She admittedly was a bit of a Trekkie.  
Her birthday’s today, according to May.  
And now let us party o hecky. ’hecky’, is how you say ‘heck yea’ in Utahan.  Just wanted to bring you back to your roots.  
Happy Birthday Becky.-Logan  
   
I first met Becky when I was called to be a temple worker on the Saturday afternoon/evening shift. She was the official trainer for the shift & with good reason. She knew her stuff & made me feel comfortable with all the things I knew I would have to learn. Her dedication to working every Saturday night was a great example to me. I appreciate her friendship, sense of humor & good nature. Happy Birthday Becky! I hope this year brings many delightful surprises, perfect moments & happy beginnings! Hugs & long-distance love, Julie Ingermanson

I love you to a million little pieces!  I think you are wonderful.  I hope you have a great Birthday.  I am so glad that this will be the second anniversary of you turning 29 😉

Becky! Happy happy birthday! I hope you have a smashing 30th year.  
Love,  
Brook  
   
       
yo, becky boombastic,  
hope your birthday’s fantastic,  
don’t want no snobby looks from the ladies with their faces made of plastic.  
or the dudes tryn’ to freak you, but their moves are just spastic.  
drastic.   
tryn’ to keep up with a bombshell like you who just has it.  
50 foot woman in stilettos on the red carpet.  
start it.  
if one goes too far, and you ask it, he’ll get his ask kicked.  
on your b-day, you gotta get the most of each and every clock tick.  
rock it.  
you’re the hero on guitar, hot as heidi klumkastic.  
don’t mask it. bask in it.  
make your dreams a reality, fast track it.  
cause someday we will all end up in a casket,  
we need you in our lives like a picnic needs a basket.  
without you we’d be crying like an engine blows a gasket.  
this birthday rhyme is for your face, to put a smile on it.  
even more than when you open may’s homemade birthday bonnet.  
but you’ll wear it,  
cause you’re cool like that.  
even if its only by yourself with the lights out in your fancy flat.  
is that amy in your mirror singing “beat it” back?  
treat it. cause everyone knows you’re unbeatable.  
it’s repeatable.  
becky boombastic.

Becky,  
Happiest Birthday to you.  You are definitely on my list of the smartest people I know and I’ve always admired they way you can run the show without breaking a sweat.  You’re kind but not without a great sense of irony and I always have a great time whenever you’re around.  I hope you have a wonderful 30th birthday and please know I always think of you when I see a lobster… and that you’re awesome.  
 
 
 
 
 
       
Happy Birthday!

Becky- There are a few things about you that stand out to me.  They range from the things that make you amazing to the things that make you oh so very lovable.  You served a mission and the way you talk about it today shows that you really loved it.  You give of yourself freely.  And no I’m talking about making out with boys-oh no.  I’m talking about how service oriented you are in giving of your time and talents.  You are such an example to me.  These are things that make you amazing.  Then we have the things that make you oh so very lovable.  Like when you play guitar hero and before you know it Becky’s on the floor rockin’ out like a true rockstar!!  Oh those moves you’ve got… And the way you laugh and giggle with your adorable dimples.  You are so gorgeous.  Oh, and then the way you flirt – your flirty face is AMAZING!!!  I wish I could do it half as well as you do, you’re a natural.  And next there are your perky boo….wait a second…is your family going to be reading this??  Just in case I’ll leave it at that.  I love you girl and appreciate your friendship.

Happy Birthday Becky!!!   
You’re thirty now!  Yay!  You’re old!  It’s time to get annoyed with youngsters.  You should frequently tell them to get out of your yard.  
 
I’ve never met you, but I think we’ve chatted online a few times.  You’re totally my favorite May-roommate.  It always seemed like you guys had so much fun together.  It made me want to be your roommate too.  
 
 
Also, you’re a rocket scientist.  I won’t hold the Fox News thing against you.  I’ll just say that there’s a pretty darn high chance that you’re the smartest person in that building.   
 
 
I also think it’s totally cool that you got an MBA.  Especially since just that same day that I found out where you went to school, I learned who Bernard Baruch was.  So it was quite a coincidence.  
 
 
As someone who has been thirty for a few years, I can tell you that your video-making ability and dancing ability should serve you well now that you’re old.  
 
 
I hope you have the happiest of happy birthdays!!!

Beek,  
Happy Birthday! You have been waiting for 30 (and telling people you are 30) for long enough.  Now it is really here.  You are officially legit and all grown up.  Congratulations.  I hope you have a wonderful day and eat lots of yummy food.  If I was there I don´t know if I would take you out for sushi or arepas.  Either way I wish I was there but will see you soon.  Thank you for being such a great friend.  You have been such a strong positive influence in my life and I am so happy to be a part of yours.  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Love,

Dear Becky,  
I learn more and more exciting things about you, illustrious woman, everyday; most recently, something to do with a Cabana Boy.  Oh, to be the lusty, luscious, luminescent Becky Middleton……    
 
 
Celebrate 30, Baby – you’re coming into your PRIME!!!!! 🙂  
Love ya, Lady-  
Marin  
   
Becky, [imagine in purple font]  
We got to know each other in the back seat of a small car; a relationship that starts with such intimacy has got to be eternal. I just keep wondering if I passed your test…  
 
 
Although ours was just a one-night stand, I will always remember our time together with the deepest of emotions (Never mind that I’m rather shallow). Now, if you’d ever answer my calls…  
All my love and devotion,  
Lynn  
       
Becky,  
So maybe your Lingo’s video is what truly introduced me to Becky Middleton.  Your witty sense of humor in your film was really quite inspiring.  I hope you have a great birthday and know that many people admire you…some admire from distances that land us accross the park…but we still admire!  
 
 
 
 
Happy Birthday,  
Adrienne Martin  
       
My Dearest Becky…  
How do I put into words my feelings about your “special” day?? I hope that you have an AWESOME day… I hope you have a FANTASTIC dinner… And I hope you have a great year, full of lawyers from Australia, and visitors from Salt Lake City… And may you teach many many people the fun and excitement one can get from Hexadecimal… I hope you go on many midnight runs and occasionally slap the butt of a man making out… I hope you find your true Edgard … You are a great roommate and a better friend… And may you always remember that Peace is a Parabola!  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!  
Deena 🙂  
   
Becky,  
All I need to say is Thursday nights with The Office and Gray’s Anatomy.  
We had so much fun.  I wish you more fun nights to come and hopefully I can be there for some of them.  
 
Miss you,  Martha (in 2 years PhD in Mathematics, Lattice Theory)  
       
Ahhhhh…. Becky. I remember when she first moved to the Manhattan 3rd Ward. I remember her regal look, her long legs her….. bitingly funny sense of humor! Becky is a 100% quality person with an amazing ability to find humor in some of the most unexpected places. She’s amazing! HAPPY BIRTHDAY BECKY!!!  
 
 
 
 
Love,

Happiest of happy birthdays to one of the loveliest ladies I know! I have so appreciated your friendship and support over the years, and I want you to know how proud I am to know you. Turning 30 is an exciting point in one’s life- you have already achieved so much, and it is thrilling to think of all the great things that await you in the future! I hope this is the beginning of your happiest year yet!  
 
 
 
 
 
Lots of hugs,  
Keely  
   
Happy, Happy Birthday, Becky! I love your smile. It lights up a room. And you have a gift for making people feel important; I always feel important when I’m around you, and that has meant a lot to me. You are one of a kind. I hope your b-day is something special. Because you are.  
 
 
 
Love,

Happy Birthday Beautiful Becky!!!  I’m so honored to have known you for part of your amazing life.  Here’s to more wonderful times together enjoying the world.  
 
 
Love, Betsy  
       
Becky,  
To me you are like a song. At first listen, I like the song. It’s catchy, but the more I listen to it, I realize how much my appreciation is superficial. The song is so much more than I first thought. Instruments weave in and out with complex chords and progressions. A voice is heard, strong and beautiful. The words are enchanting. Entrancing. Each part is crucial to the brilliance of the piece, but without spending time digging deeper into the song you’ll miss the best parts.  
 
 
 
 
 
 
The music you make – YOU – awe me. I’ve watched you over the past two years, digging deeper into your character and personality and quarks. And the more I’ve gotten to know you, the more I’ve seen an amazing woman. There have been late night talks and good food and laughter and music and dancing and maybe even a few tears. It’s all just made me love you more. And I have a feeling that I’ve only scratched the surface of your greatness. Thanks for the example. Thanks for the friendship. Here’s to the next two plus years of exploring the music of you.  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Je t’aime-  
Alicia  
       
becky,  
you are indispensable.

Happy b-day Beeks! Wish I could be there….maybe take you to dinner and try to see a play or a movie. Or lets just take a rain check. Hope you party it out and rub the two years at Jenny, (for six days at least, lol). Well have a good one….

Happy Birthday Beek! I love ya! You’re a great example to me. Thanks for coming to Utah to hang out and meet your new nephew. Henry says, ahhhhhh. aka. Happy 30th Birthday.
Drew says, Happy Birthday, Have fun.
 
 
 
 
       
What can I say about my sister Becky? She is a very hard worker! She is also very understanding and supportive. She is always there for me. Thanks Becky. You are an amazing sister! I love you! Happy Birthday!  
 
 
Love, Steven  
       
Beek I love you, Happy Birthday, Em.  
       
Happy Birthday to my youthful, independent, beautiful sister! Welcome to my decade! I am certain that you will approach your 30s with the same gratitude, enthusiasm, and determination as you did your 20s. I shall try to learn from you. I love you!

Happy Birthday to my favorite sister-in-law living in Manhattan. Hope you have a wonderful day!!!!!!!!!  
 
Love, Brant  
       
Becky, like Anne of Green Gables likes to say, we are kindred spirits!  You are one of my dearest friends, and I’m so grateful that we are also sisters.  For your birthday, I wish you all the joy and happiness that life has to offer!  Have a fantastic day, and may the coming year bring you all that your heart desires! Kimberly  
 
 
 
 
       
Way to go, Becky: you match the atomic number of zinc, and you’re now old enough to be a US senator.  Thanks for being such a wonderful sister and aunt.  Happy Birthday!  We love you!
