Me, Raquel

I am very excited about the Bell-Ladies blog. My name is Raquel and currently live in Los Angeles. I have known our mutual friend, Alicia, since we were 8 year-old giggly-girls in Utah. I moved to Los Angeles about 5 years ago to explore my dream of living in a big city and experiencing life a little before getting married and all that fun stuff. I'm currently in a great relationship with a wonderful man, Mark, whom I've known for several years even before we started dating. (he grew up in Utah also!) It worked out that he had already moved to LA when we started dating, so I had one more reason to move to this wonderful city in Southern California.

I graduated from college a few years ago with a degree in Paralegal Studies. I currently am a bookkeeper for a private family firm in Westwood near UCLA. I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up but I'm working on it and when its right I'll know.

I enjoy art, writing, reading, shopping, eating... and all the other "ings". I can bake like it is no body's business - but I have a bit to learn on actual cooking and meal planning. (Not my mother's fault - she is a great cook and still makes great meals every night for my dad.) In my defense, cookies are way more interesting than casserole. So, that is how that happened. I try to get to the beach whenever I can (only about 7-10 miles from home), and another of my favorite things is to go for long walks through the city at night with M. I am a bit of a night owl, so I have to have things to occupy my time at night when I wake up. Lots and lots of movie watching too, if you ever want a movie recommend, I can be your girl!

I am really looking forward to getting to know everyone!

I am a night owl too! My children are trying to tame me but I keep fighting back. I'm usually up until at least midnight and more like 1 or 2 am.

Have you seen "Julie and Julia?" I'd really like to see that movie.

Raquel said...

I haven't seen Julie and Julia yet, but I want to. I will let you know as soon as I do. I think Amy Adams is so adorable, I'll watch anything with her in it.

Alicia said...

I like Amy Adams too but what else is she in? Was she that lady in the movie about the Disney princess that comes to life...Enchanted, was it? If so she was really good in that. What else does she do. This was a great post and I hope you'll share some cookie recipies!
