Rachel: A to Z.

Sometimes I think the only people reading this blog are my family and friends, but lately, I've been getting more comments and traffic from people I don't know and it's super exciting!! I know there are a million and one DIY & decorating on a dime blogs and I am so touched that people would spend even few minutes of their day taking a look at what I've been working on. It's quite humbling!

So with that said, I figure there might be some folks out there who don't really know much about me so here's a little bit of Rachel: A to Z.

A. Age: 31
B. Birthday: Valentine's Day.
C. Chore that you hate: Dishes.
D. Dream car: Volvo XC90 (the SUV)
E. Essential start to your day: Coffee with Hazelnut Creamer.
F. Favorite country other than the one you live in: Sweden.
G. Guilty Pleasure: The Real Housewives of New Jersey and Beverly Hills.
H. Hometown: Downey, California
I. Instruments you play: Flute in middle school band...nothing now.
J. Job title: Scholarship Relations Specialist.
K. Kids: Nope.
L. Live: Southern California.
M. Mother’s name: Marilyn.
N. Nicknames: Rach or Raquelly.
O. Overnight hospital stays:  Not yet.
P. Pet peeves: Getting magazines in the mail that are wrinkled, when the commercials are so much louder than the TV show, and when people say "knock on wood" but instead, knock on their head.
Q. Quote: "Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart." Psalms 37:4
R. Reality Show: Survivor.
S. Season: Fall...hands down.
U. University: Cal State Fullerton...Go Titans!
V. Vegetable you hate: Celery. No amount of peanut butter can help that unfortunate veggie.
W. What makes you run late: Hitting snooze...good thing I live 5 minutes from work!
X. X-Rays you’ve had: Dental and arms. When I was three, I broke both arms in two separate occasions.
Y. Yummy food that you make: I don't cook very often, but I can make this! It's the quickest and easiest appetizer and always a hit!
Z. Zoo animal: Anything except a monkey/ape/chimp...those freak me out.
