Miscellaney Monday

July 25, 2011


Erin Schrader

Hi there pip sqeaks.
So glad you decided to make your way to this blog today.
So I can share with you all my miscellaneous thoughts.
That is what Mondays are for afterall.
And the Bachelorette…
where JP is clearly going to dominate.
But that’s for another post…
Instead, we will jump into the complete randomness that is working in my brain today.
1. So you know when you are driving and a bird is flying right in front of you?
Is it possible that they could actually hit your car?
Like seriously, have any of you ever had a bird just fly right into your windshield when you are cruising along?
I would love to know…
Just because it’s really useful information and all.
And because every braniac bird I almost hit, always manages to miraciously fly away, which leaves me pondering this question every.single.time.
2. Lesson learned yesterday: Never go to Target when your sinus’s are acting crazy.
And by acting crazy I mean making your face feel like it is about to explode.
This will cause you to not think clearly {like at all} and walk away with these purchases..
{That wrapper? An individual piece of string cheese that didn’t make it’s way home}
To make matters worse, I used a gift card that I received for my birthday on all of the above.
Who in their right mind does that?
That’s why you should never go to Target without a right mind.
Point proven folks.
3. Okay so I have an obsession. It’s called Yellow & Navy.
It’s also called wearing my new shorts and thrifted necklace.
Boom Shacka Lacka.
4. Why in the world do I allow my nails to grow out for two months straight,
 just to chew them off in a moment of boredom?
Dumb. But very satisfying in that moment of boredom.
5. Allow me to introduce you to my lunch yesterday:
That puppy packs a whopping 1450 calories.
At least I shouldn’t have to eat for the next week…
Oh wait, speaking of food, I am kinda hungry.
{It’s been an hour since I ate that meal…}
And the stupid thing got on my white tank pictured up above.
There is really nothing positive that came out of those 1450 calories.
Chalk that one up to another lesson learned.
Bite me steak N shake…
I am never coming back
{well, maybe..that Key Lime Milkshake I saw flaunted on your billboard today did look pretty delicious…}
6. Oh you want to know what I did this weekend?
Okay fine, if you must know…
First off-the boys departed for Jimmy Buffet..
Everybody say “Bye boys..please come back alive..”
So then, my mom, sister, neice, and I went and had a lovely little lunch
Smelled some pretty flowers…
Did a little thing I like to call “Wine Tasting”…Oh, well I guess that is what it is called.
If we are gonna’ be technical and all.
After a few hours in the sun, my bestie and I decided to go get tatted up.
You know, to match our gangsta lifestyle and all.
Clearly stars and a little heart were the best choice. 
{Totally airbrushed because I am a wimp like that}
After making friends at the tattoo parlor, we enjoyed a delightful dinner full of complete girl talk, and ended the evening with a few coffees
{complete with a delicious creamer called Baileys…} outside on a nice little patio.
It was pretty magical.
Oh and hey-the boys came back alive =)
7. Last but not least, this blog is in total need of a makeover.
I am so tired of the look…If anybody knows of a good blog designer, let me know.
It’s about to get serious around this joint.
And that’s a wrap.
I’ve always wanted to say that on a set of a movie.
I guess this is the best it’s gonna get…
Suppose I’ll take it.
Happy Monday Sweet Pickles
