Now That I’m Older…

July 18, 2012


Erin Schrader

I’ve come to the conclusion that birthdays rock.
I realize this is not the “norm” when it comes to birthdays and how they rank, but I swear–each year that passes I get a little bit more excited about the big day. Apparently I get over excited for birthdays because today I caught myself telling more than one person that I am 27 as of today. Not 26, but 27.
Lord help me. Anyhow–it was a great day. Thank you to my coworkers for decorating my cubicle with macaroni noodles, banners, birthday hats, and balloons. Thank to for my friends for the sweet cards and gifts….

Thank you to my family for allowing me to just soak you all up tonight. Every last bit of ya.

 {yes. I asked for a heating pad for my birthday. thank you husband for delivering on that one}

And of course, thank you to you, you, you, and you who left comments all over the green earth.

Y’all really are the sweetest. I mean not as sweet as the cake, ice cream, and cupcake that I ate today, but almost.

Because it’s still technically my birthday, I am going to leave you with some ladies who are not in
that “I shouldn’t be blogging because its my birthday” mode.

First blog you need to get to–Katie from For Lauren & Lauren

Katie has a fabulous blog that is centered around all things. You were waiting for me to say “all things fashion–or all things recipes–or all things DIY“. Well guess what, I really just meant all things. As in Katie will talk about it ALL. And she does so perfectly. Just recently Katie opened up about her struggles with fertility and packed such a good lesson into that blog post {as in, read it}.
Make sure to pay Katie a visit–I have a strong suspicion you won’t want to leave her blog after you do. 


Second fine lady I’ve got for ya is Rachel from Simple Little Joys.

Rachel happens to be my hero. Yes, I said hero. I am sure you want to know why. Well, click here. Please just stare for a solid ten minutes at the before and after pictures. And then try telling yourself you don’t want to go to the gym today. Rachel is a southern girl who knows how to have a good time. And boy do I love a good time….I think you will too. Check her out {owwww owwww}
Next up is one of my all-time favs, Michelle from The Momma Bird.
She just so happens to be pregnant with twin girls. That means TWO. Two baby girls at that. Add those to the TWO baby boys she already has and that equals FOUR children. Which also means “shoot me now.” That’s a joke people. Don’t worry–she knows all about parenthood. But because Michelle is super woman, she has a fabulous blog AND design shop. Whatever you do on her blog–promise me this. You will watch her vlog. And then promise me to laugh along with Michelle and her wonderful journey because believe me, you will.

And last but certainly not least, my Sarasota hot shot–Amy from Blank Pages.

I discovered Amy after my trip to Sarasota this spring and oh baby am I glad I did. The girl has style.
And a super cute man who certainly doesn’t hurt her blog. Just read their cute little love story. Awww. Amy is funny. And super sweet. And knows how to rock some platinum blonde hair.
You take those three things and you’ve got a blog to be reckoned with. Check it.

Okay. I am tired. And it’s past 10 pm. The time that I SWORE I would be in bed by.
I knew I should’ve never started swearing.
Thank you once again for making me feel like I’m the only girl in the world….
I meant most special girl in the world. Rihanna always has a way of taking over my words…
Oh na-na….what’s my name.
Okay yeah, bye.
