Your Questions, My Answers: Part One

June 2, 2013


Erin Schrader

Remember last Thursday when I put a call out on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for your questions and said I would answer them all on Friday? Well, here we are! It may not be Friday but it is a day that ends in the same three letters as Friday so there we have it. This is pretty much par for the course with my life. Intention > Execution. I’m still working on that whole equation. One of these days I’ll get it figured out. 

Enough self discovery talk though. I’ve got questions upon questions to answer (hence the “part one” in the title of this post, this is bound to be a twelve part series or something dramatic like that). Let’s see what you peeps are curious about. To ease into things we will start with an easy one. 

1. Bonnie asks “I want to know–are your knockers real?!”
Let me begin by saying yes, they are in fact real. My mom decided to bless us daughters in the boob department so I have her to thank for that. Thank goodness because I am absolutely terrified of anything medical related. I am assuming a boob job is a medical procedure that involves some type of scary utensils, being put to sleep, hospital gowns, or what have you? I have avoided the dentist for the past three years because of those scary utensils. I’m not so sure being a double A would convince me to take those same tools to my lady loves. Next question please. 

2. Erica asked a very realistic and important question and that was “If you had to pick a rapper to eat dinner with, would you choose Lil Wayne, Ludacris, or Lil John and why?” Hands down Lil Wayne on this one.

And why? Because he is absolutely crazy and sports a grill like nobodies business. Plus, he ain’t got no worries. Oh, and he likes lollipops. Who doesn’t like a good lollipop every now and again? 

3. Lindsay is intrigued with my eye makeup and wants to know “what eye makeup products do you use?!” I use the same exact things every single day. It’s pathetic really. I’m a girl. I should experiment with make-up and all of those girly things. I did write a post on this once, however I will break down the items below. You will notice I primarily use Mary Kay products. I truly think they are some of the best and have never been disappointed by any of them. Links are placed below if you wish to buy any..I think you’ll be pleased!

4. Sarah was curious and asked “what does your day job consist of?”
I work at a local credit union answering phone calls all day and taking self portraits. 

It sounds pretty lame and some of the time you may be right. However, I absolutely love the company I work for and adore my coworkers and boss. Basically I answer general questions, take loan applications, help people with their accounts, and get entertained daily by people’s randomness. “Hi. Do you know if there is barbecue chicken for sale in our town today?” is just one example of a recent call. I only get yelled at occasionally and as long as I am not on my period, I don’t take much offense. Is it my dream job? No. Does it work for the point in life I am at right now? Absolutely. 

5. Richelle asks “Did you know anything about blogging before you started?”
Sure did! I knew that other people knew how to do it! Based off that one piece of knowledge I knew enough to give me the courage to start. The only thing you actually need to know when you write your first post is whether or not you want to be doing it. If the answer is yes, looks like you have a pretty good start to me! All of the “other” stuff comes eventually. Ignorance is bliss so they say, and in this case, I have to agree.

And for today, this concludes all of the questions and answers. 
Only 62 more to go! I wasn’t kidding about the whole twelve part series so don’t say I didn’t warn you. 
If you want to join in the fun and ask a question, please do so below in the comments section. 
I’ll make sure to get it answered even if that means not until next December.  

Today’s featured sponsor is Kiersten from Good Day Sunshine.

Just like her blog name, this girl is a little ray of sunshine. I love what she says when I ask her how to describe her blog in three words or less–girlfriend, I couldn’t agree more. Get to know Kiersten more and then go pay her a visit. We could all use a little bit of sunshine in our lives from time to time. 

If you could summarize your blog in three words or less, what would you say?
Sunshine fixes everything.
You just won a million dollars. What’s the first thing you would buy?
My college education! I’d pay off the debt I already have, and pay for the next year of college. 
When did you start blogging and why? 
I actually started blogging with a friend in my senior year of high-school. We kind of let our blog fall to the wayside when we both went off the different colleges. Since then I’ve been off and on with my own blogs.  Good Day Sunshine is the first one I’ve really kept up with, and I’m so glad that I have. 
I started as a fun thing to do to share our writing, photography, and to document our senior year; and I think that’s still a big part of it – I love being able to share my work and my life.  I’ve stuck with it for that, and because I love the community that surrounds blogging. 
And last but not least, I have to know–what are your honest thoughts on macaroni and cheese?
Mac & Cheese is the most delicious creation on earth….and I’m only sort of kidding.  It’s seriously a staple of my diet, and will be even more once I have an apartment with a stove!
