Who Needs Kids?

May 7, 2013


Erin Schrader

It was one of those dreamy evenings of sort tonight. 
The kind where the sun was all shiny like, the grass was all sparkly and such, and my dogs ears were just a tad bit fluffier than normal. I was out watching Shawn pick dandelions (what? at least I was watching..) and started to notice that this kind of evening is a photographers dream. Which is awesome if you are a photographer. Also awesome if you have a lens that makes it look like you know what you are doing. 
I obviously fall into the first category 😉
And then it began. My photo shoot with my dog. Because that’s what you do when you don’t have children. 
Turns out she didn’t cry, pooped just once, and it only took four “MAGGIE STAY PUT!” commands. 
Remind me why I need children.
Oh and side note: she best responds to the name “pina colada” (proven in the last picture below). 
In the words of Juvenile..she gets it from her mama. 
 this is maggie’s best friend..just feel the love

Tell me that isn’t the cutest little pina colada you ever did see. 
And if you don’t, I hear Maggie’s friends know how to take care of business. 

It may seem like I just threatened to make you tell me that I have the cutest dog alive. 

That would be a correct assumption. 


Today’s featured sponsor is my favorite card creator in the universe, Julie Ann from Julie Ann Art.

You have to stop what you are doing right this second and scour her shop for the funniest, most unique, handmade cards one has ever seen. One of my favorites being this one. Okay this notepad too. As you may have forgotten Mother’s Day is just around the corner along with Father’s Day right after that. Julie Ann has got you covered.

I thought it’d be a little fun to do a quick Q&A with Julie so you can get to know her a little better. 

You just won a million dollars. What’s the first thing you would buy?
I’m not sure what the going rate is for personal jets these days, but if it’s under a million, well I wouldn’t mind having one. I have to travel a lot for work, and to visit family out of state, and there is pretty much nothing I enjoy about being crammed in a tuna can with potentially germy strangers. Flying gives me anxiety and anything I could do to make it a little more comfortable would make my life a lot easier!
You have one food that you could eat the rest of your life–what would it be?
Let me sit here and try to think of a food that is frickin delicious but not ridiculously awful for me. Hmmm….still thinking. Oh, I’ve got it. Tacos. I mean, how can you go wrong? And the variety. You can go the spicy carnitas route, or sweeten it up with some mango salsa on fish tacos… Mouth is watering. Best answer ever, am I right?
What is one of your favorite blog posts you have written? 

Lucky for me–I will be meeting this beauty on Saturday.
