Last month while I was in Los Angeles, I was able to visit the set of ABC’s Dr. Ken.  It was so much stinkin’ fun and I am in LOVE with the show.  It is funny, clever, and insanely thoughtful.  It’s not everyday that you find a thoughtful comedy, but Dr. Ken is definitely it.  Y’all, Dr. Ken cracks me up!  This Friday at 8:30/7:30 c, Dr. Ken will have their Christmas episode.  I was able to get a sneak peak at it and it is going to be so

Dear Fat Rachel, I Love You Okay y’all, I have to get this out before I forget.  I don’t usually get super personal or mushy on my blog, but I’m 42 and it’s time to get some things out in the open 😀  First of all, I have always referred to myself as “fat”.  If that offends you, I am truly sorry.  I do not want to offend, so please don’t take it that way.  There is power in saying it before someone else says it though, so I’m quick
