Why Blogging Rocks.

Can I just say how much I love you readers?
Like genuinely I do.
Not just in the "aww that's sweet. they left a comment" type of love.
It's like the "you are amazing, you just made my day, your support is mind blowing, I am the luckiest blogger in the world" kind of love.
And that's how you all make me feel on a regular basis.

I hope you know I talk about you people frequently.
My dad and I sit and have conversations about you. you. you. and you.
And where you are from, and what you do..and how great your blog is, and blah blah blah.
My niece even learned to say "I have the nicest readers in the world" because she heard me repeating it.

You really fill my heart up. And not just mine, but other people in my life. Like yesterday--I had SO many of you leave comments, tweet me, email me, etc saying that you were praying for our friend who was having a brain tumor removed. You don't just get that kind of support anywhere. I can tell you that the surgery is done and so far everything looks great :) Thank you to each one of you who prayed for that man in the last 24 hours. He has no idea that any of you did, but I can only imagine how grateful he would be.

I never would have thought a year ago that I would have developed the kind of friendships I have through blogging. It was something so unexpected but so appreciated.

So that is why blogging rocks.
Because you people rock.
End of story.
We will play pretend that this heart was not originally intended for Keith Urban.

With that being said, I am due for some not so serious, heartfelt posts soon.
Which is why I spent all morning taking pictures of my closet{s} so I can show you how I organize my clothes//jewelry//shoes.
Thrilling I know.
Stay tuned for that epic post.

Now if you will please excuse me, I am off to attend "craft night" at my sisters house.
Here's the deal though.
I am not going to craft. Just to drink.
That's how us who weren't blessed with talent roll.
We drown our lack of creativity with wine. Which really sounds like a lot more fun than what those who were blessed with creativity will be doing.
Thank you Jesus for granting me with the short end of the stick on that one.

Happy evening//morning//whatever the heck time it is when you are reading this.

Keep being awesome. It's a good look on you.

PS. I know this is totally off subject but can we just appreciate the fact that I ate at a Japanese steakhouse this weekend that had a disco ball hanging from the ceiling? Thank you.
I went up to our busboy and asked if the restaurant turned into a dance club later in the evening.
He didn't speak English so I had to start dancing so he knew what I was talking about.
It wasn't awkward or anything.
Especially after he responded with "I still don't understand"
Apparently he has never seen a white girl break it down before.




  1. Oh, Erin. I just adore you!!! You keep being awesome too, okay? It's a GREAT look on you.

  2. I hope everything is going OK with you and your loved ones and that the surgery went well. And O-M-G, the scarves. Thrilling indeed. I'm wondering if the closet is ROYGBIV, as mine has been since I was about 8. Here's to a week that hopefully gets better and better:o)

  3. erin - you rock too and your night of drinking sounds perfect!

  4. Readers are the best people in the world. I daily wish I could hug mine.
    I love the image of you busting moves for a confused bus boy. Hilar.

  5. Girl: I love you to pieces! Your blog posts ALWAYS makes me smile!!! I talk about my blogging friends all the time! The boyfriend feels like he knows all of you! HAHA xoxoxo

  6. Sweet girl...I love it when people make me laugh out loud...and the disco ball totally did it....as I pictured you...dancing....without music...for a confused non english speaking guy....who was thinking crazy white chick!!! <3 still praying for your friend.
    dear life from a mom of boys

  7. Glad to see on twitter that your friend is doing well!

  8. such a great post!! Enjoy the wine!! :)

  9. You and your friend have been in my prayers all day! Glad to see on Twitter he is doing well! :) I love your positive attitude all the time! xo

  10. i love posts like this because it makes me smile to know that my words can put a smile on someone else's face.

    also, love the "white girl break it down" was priceless!


  11. I'm so glad to hear that the surgery went well. Blogging really is the best; isn't it?

  12. Id pretty much pay good money to see you break it down girl! Glad your friend is doing well. Boomer and I added him to our night night list. Your blog adds so much joy to our lives too! I also regularly drink vino while scrapbooking! Epic.

  13. "Keep being awesome. It's a good look on you." <--- totally stealing that phrase, just see if I don't!

    Your previous post was the first I'd read in a while & I didn't want to leave a comment there because all I could think was how tacky it would be if I wrote the wrong words. Are retro-active prayers still legitimate? Cuz even though I knew that time had already passed, I was still keeping my fingers crossed that the next post would be positive.

    But now I feel safe to say...

    Glad all is going well for your friend.

    And I love your site! :)

  14. So glad to hear that the surgery went well. I've been thinking about you all day Erin and was glad to see that your spirits were lifted in the post. Your friend is extremely lucky to have someone like you :)

    Also, love the sneak peek of your closet! I too color code mine and my friends think I'm crazy. But it honestly does make getting ready in the mornings a little easier.

  15. seriously love you. and so happy that you are happy and all is good. and love the disco ball. only you ... only you.

  16. So glad that your friend is doing well after surgery! Also glad that YOU are feeling better :) Can't wait for the closet post. My closet needs some serious help!

  17. hahah your posts are seriously the best. i totally would be with you on the wine drinking!
    have a good night!

  18. So glad to hear everything went well for your friend!

    And I totally agree. Blogging totally rocks. I recently was laid off & have received more support & words of encouragement from my readers than I ever would have imagined. It's such an awesome thing!

  19. I'm one of your newer readers and I've only been blogging for about 7 months. Your blog is heartfelt, funny, and a joy to read. I have faith your friend will make it through this difficult time. I hope and pray for him and his family and you that you are all at peace and feel His comfort.

  20. i feel ya on the 'craft nights' aka excuse to drink wine and chat like 13-year-olds!

  21. So glad to hear your friends surgery is over and hes ok!
    I had a disco ball fall on me at a dance once, not sure why I felt the need to share that?!? Funny there was one in the restaurant, not a typical hangout for a disco ball.

  22. Love blogging!

    HOly shiz on the scarves, LOVE IT!

  23. I wish you all the best in the blogging world. Yours keeps me laughing. And feeling normal. Thanks for that!

  24. why erin rocks:
    she's freaking hilarious
    she has cute clothes
    she's beautiful (inside & out)
    she's got the biggest heart
    she has serious skills in decorating home offices
    did i mention she's hilarious?

  25. Your blog is one of my new favorites! :)

  26. I recently discovered your blog and am in absolute LOVE! Your whitty sense of humor and pure honesty is super-duper awesome.

    Seriously. For reals. You are the bomb diggity.

    Even though I barely know you, I admire your positive attitude. It's contagious :)

    Keep smilin!

  27. So my husband thinks I'm crazy for following a complete stranger's blog, but I think you are hilarious and you brighten my day. I've only been a follower for a short time (since I saw you on Guiliana's twitter) but since that day I've awaited your posts with excitement and uncertainty of what's to come. Anyone who follows G must be completely normal, right?

  28. haha. you're really funny. i'm always in love with your posts!

  29. I just found your blog!! Look forward to reading along!!

    PS Love your design and your OOTD post!

  30. So happy to hear all is well with your friend who had surgery. Prayers will continue for a quick recovery! xoxo

  31. Girl, you never fail to put a smile on my face! Thanks for the laughs :P x


I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
