  • Just Because

    The other day I came home and there was a package on the counter.  I looked at it and saw it had been delivered to Matt at work.  I figured it was a work thing but I didn’t understand why it was unopened.  I asked Matt what it was and he told me to open it.  Then, of course, I realized it was a gift for me!  YAY!

    I opened the package and inside was a Kindle Paper White.  🙂  I’d been hinting for a few weeks that I would like one.  I’ve been doing a lot of reading lately and I thought it would be nice to be able to read with the lights off.  Plus my old Kindle has some small cracks around the page buttons (not that that in any way affected my ability to read it.)


    Now that I had a cute new Kindle I needed a new case.  The Paper White is smaller than my original Kindle so I set off to find something on Amazon.  The new PW also doesn’t have the silly little side holders either so most of the new cases are either full surrounds or clip ins.  I found an adorable clip in case and for 10.00 with Prime I was sold.  It arrived yesterday and I couldn’t be happier.  The little case looks elegant and stylish and is just the right shade of teal.


    I have a pretty great husband!  And I hope he knows just how much I love him!  <3

  • Gettin’ my craft on!

    The past few days at work have been quite boring.  To the point that yesterday I think I found the end of the internet.  Last night while I was watching TV I decided I should start working on a craft project for a friend who is having a little boy in a few months.  They’ve decided on a superhero themed nursery.  I tried to think what I could do that would be superhero themed.  PLUS, I thought it would be nice if I could work on it at work.  😉

    Anyway, an idea came to mind and this morning I spent some time researching superheros.  Then I spent a lot of time working on my project. hehe.  {I told you we are slow.}  So a few hours later I think my project is done.  I’m currently waiting on some feedback just to make sure this is “the” final version.  I actually think this turned out pretty well so this gift may be shipped sooner rather than later just so I can post a pic. 😉


  • Best husband award

    Goes to my husband. I came home today and there was anew iPad on the counter waiting for me! Yay! Over the past few weeks I’ve started mentioning I might like an iPad, not a new one but a refurb would be fine. Matt got one for Christmas and we have the HP touchpad, which is okay but I can’t sync all my apps. Anyway the plan had been to wait until my laptop died before I would get an iPad but lately I have been using my phone for almost everything but blogging. It’s so big and bulky and I will go days without even opening it. That’s when when I decided to jump on the iPad bandwagon. And now I have a cute white iPad with a bright green cover. 🙂
