I Would Work For A….

August 7, 2013


Erin Schrader

working hard. hardly working. its whatever.

My life hit an all-time low as I was leaving work tonight. Allow me to explain. 
Recently we have had these evenings where we have the opportunity to put in a little overtime to do some extra work, make some extra calls, eat a lot of pizza, etc. Based on our performance we are then given all sorts of fun things including McDonald’s gift cards. And I mean hello, McDonalds sells french fries that I am obsessed with so you can bet your bottom dollar that I have been working that overtime. It didn’t really occur to me until my way out this evening that I worked an extra two hours tonight just so I can get some free french fries, and that’s when it hit me: I would work for a lot of things to make more than just a buck. Naturally I thought it would be fun to compile a little list of such things. Rather than “a dollar make you holler” it’s “a bunch of random awesome crap make you holler” kind of thing. Lets begin. 

I would work for…

A tan. I know this only because I mow the yard for this exact reason. 

A giant bowl of mac and cheese. Call me crazy but I’ll call you dumb if you wouldn’t. 

An Incredible playlist on my iPhone. Music gets me. Awesome music gets me even more. One of these days I’m hoping to wake up with the most thrilling set of music all loaded up for me ready to rock out to. That or for each one of you to leave me your favorite song in the comments below so that I can create this incredible playlist within the next 24 hours. Yes, lets go that route. 

Pants that don’t keep shrinking. This may have something to do with the above statement about my deep passionate love for french fries but for now we are going to blame the dryer. What’s a girl gotta do to get some un-shrinkable pants these days? And don’t even tell me work out. I don’t need that logic right now.
An ice cold beer on a hot summer day. I’m trying to think if there is anything better. Yup, nope there isn’t.

This one deleted by my husband. Boooooo.

Blog Comments. Which let me just say, you all blew my mother freaking mind yesterday. I tried to stay on top of responding back to those of you who I could but for those who I have missed as of right now..THANK YOU. Gosh you guys are good and I love you. 

A disco ball. Preferably paired with the cupid shuffle. Hello Heaven. 

An unlimited budget to Target. I can’t help the obsession. I just can’t. 

A professional hair/make-up/stylist/cleaner/chef/chauffeur/foot massager/email answerer etc. Because well, why not. If somebody can do something better than me, I may as well let them. It’s not called being lazy, it’s called celebrating other’s talents. Embrace it. 

A sleep number bed. I have dreams. My dreams need to dream somewhere dream worthy. Try that one on for dream size. 

A sweet ace vacation. Just give me a pimped out hotel room, a pool, a few palm trees, and an onsite spa and I am one happy camper for eternity. 

Keith Urban. I’m not going to continue this one with “in bed” because that may fall under the prostitution category but I’m not going to deny that I was thinking about it. 

My dog to stay alive forever. I can’t even go there. WHY MUST ALL DOGS GO TO HEAVEN? Maggie. Stay on earth. Or else

Gas station beef and cheese sticks. And potato wedges. 

And on that delicious note, I think I will stop for now. Fortunately I could go on for hours and hours with these. I think we should make this a link-up? Okay fine we will. If you want to make your own “I would work for a…” list feel free. Just link it up below and that’s that. Easy and straight to the point, just like it should be. #thatswhatshesaid. 

Okay wait. Two things. The first one–Love, Yellow reminder. You have until this Sunday to place your order and remember that this month the theme is stripes. One thing to clarify as there seems to be some confusion in this area: I simply pick out the items each month, miss chic handles all of the orders and customer service items. If you have a question about your items, payments, refunds, etc please contact miss chic and I 100% guarantee you that she will get you taken care of properly. So excited for all of you who have and are participating-seeing your pretty faces on Instagram and Twitter light up my ever loving life. Remember to use hashtag #loveyellow so that I can find your hot selves.

And numero two–Jane Heinrichs. I’m not sure if you have seen her work before for children but I think she is pretty incredible. Now listen, I don’t have kids but her prints kinda make me want some. I mean one. You know what Jane, just start making dog prints. Anyhow–I think they are beautiful and for those of you with little ones, I feel like you need to own some of her art. It is whimsical and dreamy and every little thing kids should be. 

print found here 

Thankfully I mustered up a promo code for you all to use which is YELLOW10 for 10% off. Jane also writes a fabulous blog here and would love for you to say hi on facebook over here

But I mean seriously-don’t these lovelies just make you want to go out and do something you’ve never dreamed of before? Maybe that’s just me but I love a good dose of inspiration through art. Get your shop on now

Okay. Now you may link-up. 

Holy longer than balls blog post. Woops.
