A Thank You Letter, To You...


Tomorrow marks 3 years here at Living In Yellow. In years past I have planned out a big ole giveaway in hopes to make one of you readers insanely happy with some awesome prizes but to also help spread the word out about my blog in hopes to kick start another great year. This year something felt different about how I wanted to celebrate. I don’t know if it's because I feel like the last thing the blog world needs right now from me is a giveaway, if I didn't want to take the time to plan it all out, or if I just wanted to simply say thank you with asking you to tweet this, share that, and shout my blog name from the rooftops. It can all feel so artificial at times. I wanted nothing to be artificial about this celebration today. So instead of all of that jazz, I simply want to write a thank you letter to you while asking absolutely nothing in return. Just the way a real thank you should be. 

To you, 

Thank you so much for taking time out of your day to read what I have to write on a regular basis. Time is such a valuable thing and the fact that you spend some of it with me means more than you will ever know. I often get too caught up in all of the other parts of blogging that I forget about you, the ones who make all of this possible. The emails, the tweets, the love on Instagram, the comments on Facebook, hearing from you touches a piece of my heart on a daily basis. Some of you have prayed for me during hard times, while others of you have laughed with me through the good times. If only you knew the number of smiles you have placed on my face. I have thousands of reasons why I should be here doing this, and they all point back to each one of you.  To keep this short and sweet, thank you. Thank you for keeping this little love of mine afloat and allowing her to grow into something she never thought she would be, or wanted to be for that matter. You inspire me, challenge me, and love me. I am forever grateful for your presence here and never want to take that for granted. Thank you. 

Until next year,


And because I know you are going to ask--this awesome (and perfectly said) blog life tee hails from a lady I love a whole heck of a lot, Whitney over at I Wore Yoga Pants. Every month Whit designs her own "witty" tee that you can order. This is the second one I have received from her and I can promise you they are as soft and perfectly fitted as they appear. You can order this shirt now through Sunday, February 9th. After that you are SOL. Not only will you receive the shirt, you will receive a custom koozie as well. It's only $25 plus $5 shipping--place your order here (and fast). See all of the details here

A Stream Of Thoughts


I've done this before and I figured it was time again. My thoughts exactly as they come to me written out in blog post form. It's a scary thing I'm about to do but you know what they say, no risk no reward. Or maybe they say keep your thoughts to yourself, but I'm going to go with the first one in today's case. Lets do this.

So my lunch today was McDonald's French Fries. I'm trying really hard to not eat those on a regular basis but I mean, c'mon. If they weren't supposed to be eaten they wouldn't be made. Nor would they have an emoticon that looks identical to McDonald's French Fries. It's such a tease that little emoticon. 

Speaking of emoticons, I'm still hung up on the salsa dancer. I know I need to stop dreaming about being her but I can't. She just has it ALL. 

She will not stop staring at me right now while licking the air repeatedly. I don't get it.


This is how I know I am not ready for kids. Annoyances like this make me want to shout and cry all at the same time. STOP LICKING. STOP STARING. JUST STOP BEING. I love her I do. But seriously stop licking at me. 

I traded her for furniture. I probably shouldn't admit that right now but I did. I bought her with my first real estate commission check back when I was 18 years old. This was at the same time when I lived at home with my parents. Turns out they got attached to her and also happened to have a set of furniture they were going to sell.....you can see where that lead. Looks like I win because the couch has never ventured into my office and just stared at me while licking non-stop. 

Girls weekend is taking place this weekend. This means Chicago, a full day at the spa, and two nights of dancing. Just so happens that the hotel we are staying at has an indoor/outdoor rooftop bar that houses hot tubs in the outdoor portion. I'm not one to judge girls running around in bikinis at a bar. Just sayin'. #needtolosetenpoundsbeforefriday

I wonder if our future children will know what a word means if it doesn't have a hashtag symbol before it. Like will they even know what a sentence is with a period at the end? #doubtful 

I like wine. I like it even more at 3:30 pm on a Wednesday. 

live and in action

I think I need to move to San Diego. Do you guys see that bush outside my window? What about the road?


Exactly. My world is one endless stream of white right now. Snow is cute on December 24th and 25th. It's January 29th, waaaaaaaaaaaay past the point of cute. 

I hate the word bush.

I wonder what I am supposed to get Shawn for Valentines Day? Do people still do gifts for this holiday or is that like so 1998? Thankfully I have a handful of cards to give him (because one would say "I kinda love you". I'm thinking five will get the point across..) I'm going to start off with this one, because he just ADORES when I use hashtags and talk in tweet form via text or oral communication. 


And by oral communication I mean talking. I just didn't know how to say it, but now that I type it all out I guess I could have stuck with "talking". Perhaps I'll just stick to this one. Leaving my phone out of the equation may pay greater rewards if you know what I mean.


I wonder if it was a good idea to start a new blog yesterday?

Speaking of, I should probably go try to write a post for it or something crazy like that.

Polar Vortex Is Not For Bloggers

I'm struggling over here with this whole polar vortex thing. Do you all know how cold negative forty degrees really is? It's asinine really. But here is where my struggle comes into play, pictures for blogging. I know. I have a hard enough time getting my husband to agree to take outfit pictures outside when it's 78 and sunny, let alone when you see your breath before stepping outdoors. I feel like this polar vortex thing is happening just to spite bloggers who think it's a good and cute idea to take outfit pictures all of the time. It's like God's way of saying "fools. you are all fools.." All of this to say, if you start to notice that all fashion/product pictures are taken on my couch, this is why. Because of wind. And freezing temperatures. And red noses. And toes that have up and fallen off. I just keep praying for my husband's you know whats that they don't become inverted due to this polar vortex thing. I'll keep you posted on that one. 

So on that note, I should probably display all of my beautiful couch pictures for you. Allow your mind to be blown away by the level of creativity behind these suckers. 

"flash is bad, it really makes your face look greasy"--Shawn 

So then we went with this..the more natural orange look because that's pretty. 

And because neither was working, I said screw it, let's go for the natural light selfie where I forget to put on lip gloss or enough blush so it looks like I am near death. 

I promise there is a point behind these beautiful pictures. The point being in all of them I am wearing one of my favorite new pieces (make your eyeballs to the necklace) from Allena Mistral. There's just something about natural stones and I that go well together. I've never been a big marijuana person so this is my way of getting stoned. My parents have to be so proud of my analogies. 

Back to Allena though. Homegirl is talented. I was speaking to her on the phone the other night and the excitement in her voice when talking about her jewelry inspired me. It's one thing to do something. It's another to do something you love and do it well. I absolutely adore her style of jewelry that she creates. Dainty, beautiful, and perfectly understated. What I mean by that is her simple jewelry makes such a huge statement without even trying. Say for instance this bracelet... 


I can't take this thing off. I'm obsessed. If you are in the market for some awesome handmade jewelry, look no further. Allena will not disappoint, I promise you. To be sure of this, she is offering you a discount of 20% off using the code LIVINGINYELLOW. To be double sure you are satisfied, she is giving the chance to one of you to receive $50 shop credit to her store. We call that #winning. Well unless you lose, in which case we call that #losing.

I Used To Be Funny (And Three Blogging Lessons Learned)

top from Sugar Love Boutique (one of my absolute favorite shops) // use code yellow for 40% off

So it occurred to me the other day that this coming Saturday marks three years at this whole blogging gig. It's nothing shy of a miracle if we are being honest. I wasn't even sure if I could stay married for three years, let alone write a blog for that long. That's a joke about the married thing if you are my husband and you happen to be reading. I gave us at least five.

Back to the point at hand though, as this dawned on me I started looking back at what I was writing about three years ago, two years ago, and one year ago. As I was scrolling through it almost felt like I was reading somebody else's blog. The entire time I kept smiling and then frowning, smiling and then frowning. The smiles because I was looking back truly proud of what I had published. I would laugh, I would roll my eyes at my non-sense, and I would smile because I remember the feelings I had when writing those crazy little blog posts. And then a part of my brain started to speak up and ask "why don't you write like that anymore? why don't you come up with clever topics every other day? why don't you just allow yourself to write your stupid, silly little writings on a whim and not think twice about it?" So yeah, basically my brain wouldn't stop asking questions and it was really annoying. But here's the thing, I had to agree with it.

This whole blogging thing is a hard balance. We (or at least some of us, myself included) start out blogging to have fun. And we do have fun, we have a lot of fun. But somewhere along the line we decide that maybe this fun could turn into an income producing hobby, which is a great logical next step in many cases. But here's where it changed for me--within the past few months, this blog turned entirely from a fun side hobby that brings in a nice little income to THIS IS MY JOB. I have to make an income from it, it's no longer an option. And that's where my writing changed. No longer do I aimlessly make my way to the computer in the evenings to see what may come out of my fingers. Now it's planned out that from 1-2 pm I will be writing a blog post because that's what I am supposed to do from 1-2 pm.  And so it's weird. I love that this "fun hobby" is now a job, but it's hard. Not a complaining "this sucks" type of hard, but a "hey, I want to be the fun blogger that I used to be but grow into the professional blogger that I am supposed to be..." hard.

With that being said, there are a few things I have learned throughout the past three years that I need to remind myself of right now that maybe will resonate some with you.  

1. Content is key. Without producing content that people want to keep coming back for, there is no blog. I get so caught up in all of "the other stuff" that accompanies blogging that I often forget to focus on the one thing that got me to this point: content. I don't care where you are at in your blogging career, always keep this front and center. 

2. Do what works for you. I'll be the first to admit that I often start reading other blogs and become easily discouraged. I ask myself why I can't take pictures like they do, come up with interesting topics daily, cook food like her, etc. Along with this, I will look at other bloggers and think "HOW?!" Like how in the world did I just email them asking a question and they responded within seconds. I have learned to set goals for myself everyday of what I know I can actually achieve. More times than not it's "write blog post" and "answer business related emails" meaning a lot of stuff gets left on the table. Determine what your priorities are, and work those priorities. None of us can do it all, regardless of how well we fake it. 

3. Don't get so caught up in reinventing the wheel when what you are already doing works. I am constantly trying to think of the next thing that I can do, when a lot of times I need to spend time looking back on what I have done. Getting back to the basics is where it's at peeps. 

So those three things are what I am trying to drench my brain in right now. 

Anybody feel me on any of this right now? 

ps. THREE YEARS!!!!! A celebration will be had. It will be sure to include lots of confetti, x's and o's, and other dramatic "you are the best readers eveeeeeerrrrr" types of things.

My Blog Just Got Plastic Surgery

I've decided that three years is the age when a little bit of botox and facial injections become necessary. I know this may seem a little young to some of you, but when it comes to the appearance of a blog, three years is a very long time to keep something "as-is". Things start to sag, look a little mundane, and starts to take on the appearance of a woman who has been married for 5+ years. Because I didn't want my blog to go down that road, I figured it was time for a little bit of life brought back into it. Think of it as bringin' sexy back. I love the new fresh look and hope you do too. Mad props to my girl Melissa from Melissa Rose Design. Melissa is much like my hair stylist. I go to her, say "do whatever you want", she does it, and then blows my mind every freaking time. We call these people hero's. Thank you Melissa for making it look like I know what's going on around here when in reality, I have no idea. 

To celebrate the new design and feel around here, I figured it was a good time to give free shaz away. While you are busy entering, I will be busy backin my azz up getting prepared for the Grammys. To get us all in the proper mindset, here's some Miley for you. Who better than her when celebrating 2013 music. Gosh I miss the 90's.

Eat: Peanut Butter + Oreo Cheesecake Pretzel Bites

I'm not a huge sweets person. I'd much rather take salty any day, but every once in awhile I will have a desire for something with a little more "mmmmmmm..." than "ooooh". Because yes, I "oooh" and "ahhh" over jalapeno chips and the like. I made both these peanut butter chocolate pretzel bites and oreo cheesecake pretzel bites the other day and while they satisfy both my sweet and salty needs, they also satisfy my "that was easy" needs. Difficult things and I don't get along very well. These my friends are anything but. Let's get started. 


Ingredients: 
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2 Tablespoons butter, room temperature
1/2 cup powdered sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar
60 mini pretzels
8 oz Semi-Sweet Chocolate Baking Bar

Instructions: 

1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Set aside. 

2. Mix together the peanut butter and butter. Stir in both of the sugars until it is well mixed together. A thick dough will form. Roll the dough into small balls (should create around 25-30).

3. Press one pretzel on each side of the ball. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes allowing everything to set. 

4. After removing from freezer, microwave the chocolate bar according to package instructions (I did 1-2 minutes, stirring every 20 seconds until completely melted). Dip each pretzel bite into the chocolate. Refrigerate for 10 minutes and then enjoy! Refrigerate any uneaten bites. 

Ingredients: 
4 oz white chocolate baking bar
18 Oreo cookies
4 oz cream cheese, softened
48 mini pretzels
chocolate sprinkles

Instructions: 
1. Smash up the oreos into fine crumbs. You may use either a food processor, blender, or if you are like me use your Pampered Chef Mix 'N Chop to crumble those suckers.

2. Mix the cream cheese with the Oreo crumbs. This will be quite sticky so remember to remove your rings. Once mixed, chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

3. After chilled, roll the Oreo mixture into 24 small balls. Press one pretzel on each side of the ball. Refrigerate for an hour to allow everything to set.

4. After removing from refrigerator, microwave the chocolate bar according to package instructions (I did one to two minutes, stirring every 20 seconds until completely melted). Dip each pretzel bite into the chocolate and immediately top with sprinkles. Let set for 10 minutes and then enjoy!
Refrigerate any uneaten bites. 
Enjoy!

Currently Loving (Like Really, Really Loving)


I don't know about you, but I love myself some funny (also known as dirty) cards to give from time to time. Thankfully Row House 14 satisfies that desire of mine on the regular. Her whole Valentines line makes me giggle. If you also want to pretend to make babies with somebody, pick up this card pronto. Feel free to use the code LIVINGINYELLOW15 for 15% off your entire order. 


Local ladies this one is for you. I recently discovered Little Cakes By Renae and oh my word I am obsessed. Not only does Renae does an amazing job decorating these little balls of goodness, they taste incredible. Like truly I couldn't shut up about how good they were and I was home alone. If you are in the South Bend, Elkhart, Goshen, Michiana area, contact Renae for your cake pop needs. I received the Little Cakes Gift Box which I highly recommend. Check out Little Cakes on Facebook here and make sure to mention the code FellowYellow for 15% off your entire order. Organic, Gluten Free, and Paleo options are also available.


Okay so these are the best. They are perfect for any gift giving occasion or to just spice up your silverware collection. Jessica N Designs is a pro beyond pro in the hand stamping department. The two spoons above make me smile every single time I look at them (which is often as I have them in a mug on my desk). If I had an unlimited budget, I would own every spoon she has created, they are just that good.


So I'm kinda in love with this love letters initial necklace from Mint Sugar Boutique. There is nothing not cute about it if you know what I mean. Unless of course you are my 3 year old niece and believes that it is both "gross and weird" to love your husband. Someday's I have to agree. Regardless, this necklace makes me happy and is perfectly dainty enough to wear it with everything. Get yours now and use the code Livinginyellow for 20% off your entire order. 



Okay you guys. I somehow just recently discovered Joules USA but it might be the worst (aka best) thing that has ever happened to me. One thing that I have always wanted to own but never have is a cute pair of rain boots. Thankfully 2014 is going to be my year to make this change as they have options upon options. Add in all of the fabulous vests they offer and my coat closet becomes basically non-existent. When I say my insides squeal looking at all of their goodness, I mean just that. My insides squeal. It's equally awesome and awkward.


Last but not least, Bloggers Closet. The home of all my clothes that need a new home. I have stacks upon stacks of clothes to list and sell on this sucker which will be happening consistently over the next several days. Feel free to shop my closet here and check out other closets of your favorite bloggers. You know when dreams come true? It's like that but better.

20 Ways You Know You Are Addicted To Blogging

Alright fine, you want me to admit it? I will then, I'm addicted to blogging. I know this may come as a surprise to some of you as this is only my 829th post ever written, but it's true, I am. How do I know? Well, you will see below. The clever "Daily Tay" and I came up with a list of how we personally know we have become addicted. Some you may recognize, others you may still be in denial about. Just you wait though, all of the below will happen to you at some point in time.

Sit back, read, and come to terms with the fact that you, yes you, are also addicted to blogging.


Are you addicted to blogging? If you find yourself nodding your head to any of these I hate to break it to you, but I think you might be. If the blogger shoe fits...

1. You've had dreams about other bloggers.

2. If you see it on a blog, you buy it. Clothes, jewelry, vajajay deodorant, etc. It doesn’t matter what it is but if another blogger has it, you need it. 

3. You plan your day around when you can fit in a post.

4. You break out into a cold sweat when you realize the pictures your husband just took of you while you stood outside in negative twenty degree temps turned out blurry, cut off, and of absolutely no good use. 


5. You sometimes catch yourself doing things just so you can blog about it.

6. Time is no longer measured in minutes, hours, days, and weeks, but rather by blog posts and blog posts only.

7. You get anxiety if you see you have an error in your post but aren't around a computer or phone to fix it yet.

8. You occasionally use your dog as a prop to pose with you during awkward public photo shoots.


9. You check your stats more than twenty times a day.

10. You stop responding to your name but rather only when somebody calls you by your blog title.

11. You respond to reader comments before you respond to family emails.

12. Your meals are a result of what you just saw on Instagram.


13. You spend hours on creating what you believe will be the one pin that will go viral, only to result in three repins.

14. You sleep with a notebook next to your head, just in case.

15. You read blogs right before you go to bed... And again when you wake up.

16. You suddenly want a new cool camera even though you know you'll probably never really figure out how to use it exactly right.


17. You sometimes think you know bloggers you've never met more than you know people in real life.

18. You trade out your WWJD bracelets for OOTD and WIWW.

19. You spend hours in front of the mirror because you will master that perfect messy bun look if it kills you.

20. You spend ridiculous amounts of money on a planner because Heaven forbid you forget to write down that you need to post a picture to Instagram at 2:34 pm on Wednesday afternoon. 


It's okay fellow bloggers, we're here for you. Now let's all go grab a glass of wine (and put it on Instagram of course) and then we can tweet about our problems together.

Priorities, Fan Girls, And So On.

maggie was feeling neglected from the blog. insert maggie and her tongue. but mostly her tongue.

Keeping this one short and simple today--I've got things to do and people to see. 

In other words, I have a house to pick up, a bubble bath to take, and chip dip to eat that is currently brewing in the crockpot. #priorities. 

I am sure you have all heard (or read) of Katie from Lauren and Lauren, but if not--consider today your lucky day. I have been a fan girl of hers for some quite time so I am thrilled I get to share her with you all. We all need a few fan girls in our life don't we? 

Here's what you need to know:
-Her name is Katie. Not Lauren like her blog may suggest. It gets really confusing to people like me who often can't remember a name even if it used correctly in a blog title. Turns out her sister and sister-in-law are both named Lauren and that is who she started the blog for. They wanted to see her daily outfits (for good reason) and that was her inspiration behind the whole thing. 
-Katie had dealt with infertility for years (and spoke of it openly) but was blessed this past year to have a little one of her own. Her daughter happens to also be the cutest baby in all of baby world. If you are a baby mama, be sure to link up to Katie's new link up called "Baby Mama" where you can feature your little ones fashion. I'll be sure to enter Maggie. 
-Not only does she know how to dress herself, she also knows how to make things. Like make make. Not buy them at a store make like I prefer. I might be considering trying my hand at making this adorable valentines burlap banner. Might being the key word. 
-If I haven't sold you yet on why you should read Katie's blog, this will do the trick. She loves Target as much as you do. Soul sisters as I like to think of it. We are share a strong bond and will never divide. Because she loves Target and you love it, she would like to give away a $25 Target gift card. Don't thank me, thank her.

I Like To Party.

“This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Rubbermaid and Sharpie but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #RubbermaidSharpie  http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO

I don't know about you but I love to throw a good party. In fact, if I had it my way I would be hosting something or another weekly. My other half however doesn't feel similar on this topic. Something about "it's expensive, a lot of work, and just makes for a lot of clean-up..." Men can be so logical dramatic sometimes. As you may recall, there is a football game approaching quickly that by goes by the name of Super Bowl. I've been told it's a very big deal. Because I like parties and big deals, I figured that the Super Bowl would be a perfect excuse to throw a party with our friends. Now I know we have a few weeks before the big day, but some of us like to be prepared for such events. So I've been thinking about what to serve, how to serve it, what to do during the game (because we all know just watching it gets boring), and how not to spend a fortune or create loads of clean-up. Well friends, I found a few solutions and now it's my due diligence to share my discoveries with all of you. 

Lets start with the food shall we (that's always where I start...). I came up with a simple menu that wouldn't cost a lot, still taste delicious, and serve its ultimate purpose--fill up my guests stomachs. Here's what I decided on: 

all recipes for the above items will be making their way to a blog near you soon 
Once I had the menu complete it was time to put it all together. And that's when my mind was blown with this ingenious idea. Rather than buy a bunch of fancy platters that I'll only use once every three years that serve no other purpose than to be a fancy platter, I turned to Rubbermaid Food Storage containers. Allow me to show you how incredibly easy and functional using Rubbermaid containers is when hosting....
And now, for the grand finale (and in my personal opinion, the very best thing about serving your food in Rubbermaid food storage containers...) the clean up process....
Do you see what I just did there? NOTHING, that's what. I think it was in this moment when my husband said "and why have you never done this before?" Because I wasn't a freaking genius until today, that's why husband.
 
And just as a "for the record" right now, while I am showing you how to have an awesome (easy) Super Bowl party, I do realize that it's a couple weeks away still and no, I am not saving this food until that time. Operation eat everything myself is welllllll under way, believe me. 
One last thing before I let you all go--so that activity I spoke of up above to do during the game in case you are like me and need something to occupy your mind/laughter desire during the game, I've got ya covered. Just grab a Sharpie (or ten), a Solo cup, and you're all set. 
That's right. As your guests arrive, have them write something down on a cup (this can be a dance, an action, something embarrassing, etc) that somebody else will have to do. Mix up all of the cups and have each guest pick one without looking at what it says. Whatever is written on the cup will be what that person has to do for each touchdown. This also serves double duty as it is their drinking cup for the night, ensuring nobody's drinks get mixed up. You know it's going to be a good time when one person is pop, lock, and droppin' while somebody else is doing the chicken dance. And that's what we call fun on a dime. 
I hope this helps some of you in your Super Bowl preparations. To summarize what you learned today, purchase some Rubbermaid food storage containers, a few Sharpies, and you are all set. Bada bing bada boom, you're welcome. 
ps. Make sure to text COUPONS to TARGET (also known as 827438) to receive $1 off Rubbermaid food storage and $1 off any 4-pack or greater of Sharpies. The coupon will be available January 25th-February 8th. In other news, always text COUPONS to Target to get all sorts of great deals because you would be foolish not to.

5 Things I Know For Sure

**Totally stealing this post idea from Don't Quote The Raven. I am all for other people coming up with creative posts that I can then use. Props to you for this one Raven, my inability to think on my own thanks you. **

1. Hose are worse than hoes. And that's just a fact. 
2. You know what's better than all of the above? Having my jewelry and shoes finally freaking organized. I promise one of these days I will shut up about how I am trying so hard to "un-crap" my closets but until the excitement of it all wears off, I won't. Also, "un-crap" is just another term for "declutter" but seems to be a lot more fitting and accurate. 

Speaking of organization, I recently purchased a ton of shoe containers from The Container Store and it was one of the better decisions I've made in my life. Right behind the 2 pm shot of Fireball Whiskey I had earlier today. 
3. It turns out that having no groceries in your home and eating only chips and popcorn for dinner consecutive nights in a row isn't all that it's cracked up to be. Just give the girl some meat and potatoes already and she will be happy. I am the girl in that story. Feed me. Somebody, anybody. 
4. I want her hair like yesterday. And then right after her hair, I'll take her face too please. That's after somebody gets me some roast beef and mashed potatoes.

5. The first official Blogger Happy Hour is happening tonight. I'm pretty stoked. I'm also stoked because February's dates and co-host have been decided and are as follows...
Below are the dates and times--remember, only 8 spots are available for each date. Join Whitney and I for one of the best blogging hours of your life. Promise you that.
