4. When she made one of the bravest requests in history.
5. And then fearlessly rocked that bleach blonde weave.
6. The moment she defended the best book ever written.
7. And really, really meant it.
8. When she saved someone from an embarrassing moment.
9. The time she gave ice cream the deep respect it deserves.
10. When her flawless ways made her literally glow.
11. The time she made us seriously tear up.
12. When she might've stated the obvious...
13. But she immediately redeemed herself by bringing out our inner grammar freaks.
