I share my stories, my photos and my thoughts with all of you, but there are so many little things that I've never opened up and shared.  So I thought that I'd share a few of the basics about me.

I may go by Mrs. H throughout my blog, but my first name is Rachel

I am a UCLA Bruin

I met my Hubby in the hallway of his fraternity.  We were both *Greek* in college and it was a big part of our lives.

I talk to my mom every day and still call her *mommy*

I hate change and I hate not having full control of a situation.  Doing things for the first time stresses me out.

I have been obsessed with weddings since birth.  This inspired me to get into my career in event planning.

I will never, ever move out of the Los Angeles area if I can help it

I am a type A compulsive first child

I still have not gotten my passport, my Costco card, or other *not important* things changed into my married name (pure laziness)

I have a constant need for approval.  I want everyone to like me.

My grandma is the most talented person that I know. 

I love junk food.  McDonalds is my friend and I absolutely am not interested in seeing Food Inc or reading any books that will change that.

I desperately want to have a baby (or three).  I have always wanted to be a mama.  My deepest fear is that, when Hubby and I are ready for it, something will be wrong and we won't be able to.

I hate doing laundry and for the most part avoided the chore until I got married (yes, that's right folks..I did laundry *with* my mom until I got married)

I love doing the dishes.  My grandma used to *let me help* (she's a smart woman) when I was little and it's made me feel warm and happy since then.

So what do you think?  I hope I'm not to big of a weirdo and we can still be friends.  I'd love to know something special about each and every one of you...leave me a comment!

  10. Hi! I am a new follower and have only been blogging for a little over a month. I love the blog! I had to make my own so it is nowhere near what I have been seeing today but hopefully I will get there. My main goal right now is to get followers so I can qualify for reviews and maybe later on giveaways. I did GFC you and hope you will follow me back. I would greatly appreciate any help I can get right now. Thank you.
