I Break Rules {And I Need Your Help}

April 24, 2012


Erin Schrader

Right now I just had all thoughts of what I am supposed to write about escape me.
It may because I just woke up from an “almost” nap that I was taking on the carpet in my office.
At 6:30 pm.
I consider it an “almost” nap because no drool had escaped my mouth yet…proving that I couldn’t have truly been asleep.

Thank God earlier today I had written down in my planner what I need to talk about.
Oh planners, what would we do without you?
Take more naps. Good call.

First item up for bid…several of you asked if Giuliana had actually read my
“I am creepy in the most adorable way” post from yesterday.
{thank you for that comment Mr/Mrs Anonymous..I appreciated it. Seriously. It was cute. So stop being anonymous. It reminds me of having an egg for a head on Twitter. And I don’t like egg heads.}
Anyhow, to answer your question…

Yes indeed she did. And she “luved it!!!” Proving my point that we are in fact soul mates.
Or whatever you want to call it.
Your right. Soul mates just sounded way too weird.

Next item–a lot of you have asked me where I purchased this dress–

To which I have to reply “a maple syrup festival”
Not kidding.
It was some booth selling kids hair bows…but for some reason she had this dress.
I awkwardly had to ask “Is this for people my size or am I an idiot and should know this is for little kids?”
Because she wanted a sale, she informed me it was for people my size. So I bought it.
And I could care less if it is intended for a 9 year old. I kinda love it.
So sorry—this one you can’t rush off to Kohls to buy. But you can indeed try your luck at your hometowns next maple syrup festival.
Good luck.

Speaking of Kohls, I received an email from them informing me that I should use links to their website when I am talking about what I purchased from them.
So here you have it.

Because they are sweethearts, they gave me a discount code to pass along to you awesome LIY readers. Just use BLOGGER10 for 10% off your order.
That code can be combined with one other discount code you already have.
You can thank me now for breaking “link” rules which scored you a sweet discount.
You are welcome.

Third. If you have emailed me in the past 7 days, your response is coming. I don’t know why I think all of a sudden I can ignore those puppies. I really do love them. But I also love naps on my carpet.

Last but not least, the whole point of this post….ladies, it is time for the
2nd Annual Clothes Drive and I couldn’t be more excited about it.
If you are local, this paragraph is for you.
You may recall last year when I did the first ever clothes drive at The Post.
That evening was one of the best moments of my life and I am not kidding.
To see these young girls eyes light up when they realized they were getting to choose whatever items they wanted for FREE was something I will never forget.
And because I want to make sure I don’t ever forget it, I want to keep experiencing that moment.
Year after year.

This year the date is set for Wednesday, May 16th and it is going to be bigger and better than before.
We have girls coming from The Post, Bashor Childrens Home, and Merit Learning Center.
To make this happen I need your gently used clothes//purses//shoes//jewelry.
Please email me at livinginyellow@gmail.com if you have items you would like to donate.
Not going to lie–this event keeps me up at night. I worry. I get nervous.
And then I turn it over to God.
I pray that we will have more to give than what they can take.
Please help if you can.

These girls appreciate it more than you will ever know.

**If you are not local but are interested in how to do something similar in you area you can see this post I wrote on The Shine Project last year, or email me at livinginyellow@gmail.com.
I would love to help. Just give me a week or so respond to that email 😉

K. That’s all I’ve got for now.

Keep on keepin’ on homies.
