I tried.

Oh, Mr. Taco.

The blogger buzz is back in my brain. I don't know where it went for so long, or why it has returned, but I suddenly feel the need to say ridiculous things in a public forum so that semi-random-aquaintances and the older ladies in my ward can keep up on the surface-level details of my life and then talk amongst themselves about those Schroeder girls and how they just need to get married already.

Wow. Horrible sentence. In a lot of ways. But so very true.

Maybe I am feeling this way because I finally got a job and I'm currently answering phones all day and all night. Okay actually only like 6 hours a day. But now that I'm all productive and responsible it gives me a lot of time to think silly things in my brain instead of just saying them out loud. So they get locked up inside and then I just need somewhere to purge.

Today I am feeling extra silly because I got very little sleep, mainly due to the fact that Kyle and I lined up at the Apple store at an obscenely early hour for the iPhone 4. (I had to turn my headlights on when I drove there. That's how early it was. Oh and about halfway over there I tried to remember waking up and putting on my clothes and getting in the car but I honestly couldn't remember doing those things. Yep.)

We made lots of friends. The lady right in front of us had bright pink hair and told us about all of the times she has camped out for things. Disneyland passes, Chik-fil-a, Wii, you name it. Everyone was jealous I brought Jack in the Box for Kyle. We all laughed and shivered and became lifelong buddies. (A lifetime probably equals about 3 hours in this instance.)

So we waited and waited. And waited. But don't worry, we sure didn't get the phones. They ran out 8 people in front of us. 

Oh and don't worry, only about 10 people cut in line ahead of us when they moved the line. No big deal. 

I wish I got a video of Kyle's depressed Charlie Brown walk when we were leaving. If I had an iPhone 4 it would be in HD. So. That would be cool, wouldn't it?

Also, I just pushed the Insert button on my keyboard accidentally instead of Backspace. And apparently the person using this keyboard before me had some kind of sticky-substanced finger problem, which is now my problem.


...miss me?

Toddler Beds for Sale

Most of this last week I have been sitting on the tailgate of my love's truck, playing the only three songs I know on my new guitar and watching him slave away on his latest project. (He happens to be an expert carpenter. It's pretty manly and rugged. Not gonna lie.)

He has a way cool design for these toddler beds that is durable and strong but also incredibly light - and they fit crib mattresses! Oh, and they are adorable. And they're for SALE.
28.5" x 60"
19" headboard
10.4" footboard
Absolutely NO visible screws
Solid white pine, paintable/stainable (Kyle will paint, just ask)
Durable but VERY light, strong enough for an adult to sleep on. A tiny adult.
Handmade with extra care for your sweet little toddler
Very low to the ground - no worrying about your little one getting hurt rolling off the bed!

Kyle is selling these hand-crafted beds for only $150, with free delivery to your home. (And none of those confusing, do-it-yourself-putting-together get ups that the toy stores are offering.)  BUT - he told me that he would give them to my friends for a discount, (what a gem) so you guys get 10% off if you go through me. I got your back, guys.

Only $135 for these beauties!

Send me an email at kristinaschro @ or leave a comment, and we will get you set up.

Oh, I can just picture these sweet little kidlets all excited for their first bed and having one of these! Precious.

Long time.

Okay it's been a LONG time. I'm sorry. :( We got a family blog and so most of our posts are going there - we haven't really been good at doubling our posts up, though. Hopefully that will get better! 

Life is good for me right now. I'm starting my MBA program August 17 and will be moving up a week or so before then. Still don't have housing or a laptop... working on both. But I did get a SWEET guitar from my sweet man for my birthday - and that's kind of taken over my life lately. I love it so much. 

TDH and I are going strong and I am pretty much totally twitterpated. He gets more and more awesome everyday and it gets a little bit harder to think about leaving him in the fall. :( Boo. We play and watch Arrested Development and sing sweet songs and talk about our made up futures and listen to the ocean waves outside of his window. Yesterday we went to the fair and he tried to win me prizes while I ate a corn dog and we laughed and watched pig races and held hands.

We are kind of living those little sappy 1-minute sequences in movies where the lovey couple is on swings and making faces and laughing and talking on the phone and shoving ice cream in each others faces. 

It's pretty awesome.

That's all really. Except for the above post. Make sure to look at that.
