Because I'm Happy (Well, I'm Getting There)...

I could go into the "gory" details about why I haven't been blogging over the past few months, but I wanted to keep this post happy and upbeat (because that is what I'm trying to get my life back to- happy). Yeah, I know it's vague, and that could worry some people, but I'm fine, I promise (well, I'm on my way to getting back there at least). 

So, here are things that make me happy...

Spending time with friends:

Even though they have had a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad season, I still love my Texas Rangers. And my new iPhone case makes me happy (okay, I got it a few months ago, but haven't posted since I bought it):
Going to the Cowboys season opener, despite their terrible performance. Looks like it's another season of defending Romo whenever he has a bad game. Some things never change:

Chick Fil-A (like I said, some things never change):

These pictures:
Me with Eric Nadel. He's the radio broadcaster for my Texas Rangers. An hour after we took this picture he saw me again and said "hi Rachel". I hear he remembers everyone he meets. I think that is really neat.
Rangers pitcher Colby Lewis. I honestly don't think he wanted to take pictures, but he was really nice and said he would take one with me. I'm more of a picture person than autograph person (if you haven't noticed).
Rangers General Manager Jon Daniels (JD). He was super nice. I was unable to get any inside Rangers information though (sorry y'all).
One of my all-time favorite Texas Rangers- Michael Young. He retired this past year. I was personally introduced to him by a good friend who knows him (so I wasn't just some random fan asking for a picture). I told him we miss him. He said he appreciated that. Wonder if there is a job with the Rangers in his future?
Former Dallas Stars goalie Marty Turco. He was super nice. When we finally took the picture, he apologized to me for the wait (he had been talking to other people when I first walked up. I waited until they were done before I asked him for a picture- I didn't want to interrupt). I was like, you are nice enough to take a picture, I do not mind at all. :) Again, really nice guy.  Another player in Dallas that we miss! I told him that. And that he needed to tweet more. :)
Thanks for all the messages/tweets while I've been away, I'm glad to know I was missed. I'm sorry if I didn't have time to reply to each one individually. Your thoughts/prayers mean a lot to me!

Hope to get back into a blogging groove at some point. Still working out some things, but I do love you all!!

Thought I would post some selfies, just so y'all know I'm okay. (Sorry Matt, I know you hate when people take selfies). ;)


  1. Missed you blogging. Glad you are getting happier!! xoxo

  2. Twin! Hope everything is going okay for you!
