Hello, everyone! My name is Rachel, I'm 27 years old, a Gemini (although I don't put much stock into astrology), and a soon to be hockey wife. Oh, yes. I'm one of those girls. You know, the ones who saw the first few hockey wives blogs and jumped on the bandwagon. I didn't do it to be like them. In fact, I used to blog pretty consistently back in college for a few years, but ran out of things to say and quit by graduation. There's only so many times you can write about being hungover at an 8:30 am class because you went out drinking on a Tuesday night. However, reading all of the other fabulous blogs out there kind of rekindled my desire to blog again. For now I'll just write a quick little intro about me.
I grew up in a small town in Upstate NY. For those of you not from NY, upstate does not include Buffalo. That's Western NY. I grew up 5 hours east of there. There's a whole other section of NY called Central NY between my town and Buffalo. Also, being from NY does not mean I'm from the city. It's actually a nice 3.5 to 4 hour drive to get to NYC from where I grew up. It would take me much less time to reach Montreal than it would NYC. Sorry, just had to get that off my chest. Just a pet peeve.
Things I love: Family, my fiance, my friends, my dog Bauer, animals of all varieties, laughing, smiling, sunshine, most sports, shopping, shoes, puzzles, math equations, chocolate, peanut butter anything, wine, occasional thunderstorms, cuddling, hazelnut coffee, sushi
Things I don't love: Liars, cheaters, intolerance, snow, rude people, bad drivers, death, clowns, spiders, packing, bad drivers, cruel people, people that abuse animals
I can't promise this blog will be unique, but it will be about me and my life. However what you can expect is stressed out wedding planning posts, fun nights with the girls posts, the annoying fan passing their phone number to my fiance in front of my face posts (yes, it's happened), the my dog did something incredibly hilarious posts, the Mike kicked ass in net tonight posts, and the regular old this was how my day went posts. I hope I'm not boring, but I can't promise anything. Maybe this will be an underwhelming year with nothing much going on. Maybe I'll be writing every day just trying to keep up with a whole lot of crazy. Either way, I'm going to enjoy the ride, and I hope you will as well! I look forward to getting to know all of you!
Oh, and I can't forget.....LETS GO SENS!!!!!
