A little bit of everything all rolled into one.

Erin Schrader

Do you realize my title is a line right out of a classic Alanis Morissette song?
Did you also realize that when I was in second grade, I bought the Alanis Morissette CD
just so a boy would ask me out?
Hey, it worked.
He somehow looked past my haircut that was chopped clear above my ears,
and fell for me because of my taste in music.
{I have told you that I used to get asked as a child “Are you a boy or girl” haven’t I?}
Anyhow–you gotta do what ya gotta do people.
With all of that being said, here are a few things to start out your Monday morning.
1. Friday night was deemed
 “let’s stay in and make a romantic dinner and then do absolutely nothing”
in our househould.
I love when we have incredible ideas like those.
So that’s exactly what we did, and it went a little bit like this:
I mentioned it was incredible right?
2. I have decided to make it official–I am writing my own column.
The name?
“Dear Erin,”
Please tell me you have read “Dear Abby” before.
Here is the deal though–I need YOU to make this happen.
Every Tuesday I am going to answer 1, 2, or 3 reader submissions.
Yes, this means that you need to submit questions.
They can be funny/serious/random, I don’t care.
All I promise is that I will answer them in true Living In Yellow style.
Say for instance you want to ask:
“How do I get my man to view me as a sex kitten and not just as a woman
who makes his dinner every night?”
I can’t stop dreaming about giraffes–
What do you think causes this and what should I do to stop?”
or heck maybe you are battling this in your life–
“I am addicted to Twitter. Help a sister out!”
You ask. I will answer.
Easy as that.
One of my genius guy friends suggested I do this back when I started this blog.
I figured it’s about time to listen to that genius suggestion.
Please tell me you like this idea because well, I kinda do.
And seriously.
Who wouldn’t want to take advice from this girl?

3. I didn’t wear pants most of the day on Saturday.
That is really here nor there, but it was fun and that’s really all that matters.
I did however, wear this on Sunday to run in.


4. While I was wearing no pants, I thought I should probably clean out my closet{s}.
Yes, closet is plural.
I use 4 in this household.
“That is ridiculous”
I know, tell me about it.
All you local readers–be on the lookout.
I will be begging asking politely for your clothes in the next couple of months so we can tackle our 2nd annual clothes drive.
5. If you follow me on Facebook and Twitter, you knew all of the above.
Minus the no pants part.
Oddly enough, I didn’t put that on any type of status update over the weekend.
I really need to stop spoiling all of my blog posts.
6. Last but not least–three fun facts for your Monday.
1. I have the cutest niece ever.
2. My “I’m talking to a two year old” voice is rather annoying.
3. Side profile shots are my worst nightmare.
Okay, my job is done here.
Yours has just begun.
Email me your “Dear Erin,” questions pronto.
This is going to be fuuuuuuuun.
Happy Monday Kitten Britches.
