iGot You, BabePosted: April 13, 2012
I have to first say WOW and THANK YOU for all of your awesome comments yesterday. Once again, it’s so nice to know that I am not alone and so many others struggle with similar issues. Your comments and thoughts really, really meant a lot to me… much more than you know! While I wouldn’t wish it (the issues I have with my body) on anyone, it’s just helpful to know that so many of you “get it.”
After a crap-tastic day at work of dealing with teenage attitudes (I was seriously about to LOSE IT), I unwound with an hour of yoga with Bob (hey look- you can get a little preview of it here!). Ahhhh, yes. Yoga always helps. And the day just got better after that.
After leaving work, I was off to THE MAIN EVENT.
(It looks kind of beige- but it’s really white.)
Yesterday marked the date that I was eligible for my NEW EVERY TWO upgrade with Verizon! YES!!!! I have been wanting an iPhone ever since they came out. But, I refused to switch my service to AT&T and wanted to stick with trusty Verizon. I kept hearing rumors that Verizon would eventually get the iPhone, but it never happened. So, I bought a Droid 2 two summers ago. And then, of course, the iPhone came out a few months later.
So after being very patient, I finally got my iPhone. And I love it. I look forward to playing with it and telling Siri to do all sorts of dumb things for my entertainment.
I even got a snazzy cover for it:
I’m not too crazy about this cover, actually, but there weren’t a lot to choose from. I’m sure I can find a cooler one online. Or, as the salesguy said, I can get a bunch of them to match outfits and stuff. I just looked at him and said “Dude. I’m not high maintenance like that.”
The first photos I took were of the dogs, of course.
Lance does this thing where he paws at the door like he wants to be let in, and then he just sits there in front of the open door, staring. What a weirdo.
I took a few photos of them this morning while I was getting ready… I’m not super impressed with the quality using indoor lighting. But, it is better than the quality from my previous phone.
And I also took photos of my yummy dinner last night:
(Again, the quality isn’t very impressive- but it looks great on the tiny iPhone screen.)
Perfect tofu never disappoints! I mixed it up in a bowl with broccoli, carrots, freekeh and chopped peanuts, which were simmered in a sauce containing peanut flour, Bragg’s liquid aminos, siracha, sesame oil, honey and rice wine vinegar.
I also highlighted my hair last night. I pretty much always do this myself (and have been since high school) unless my friend Krista does it for me (who also does a really good job). I have to admit- I always like the way it turns out when I use a box and apply it myself- and it’s way cheaper that way.
Forgive the static and flyaways. It was hard to take a picture of this quickly this morning, and I have absolutely no “product” in my hair.
And just for a few more happy thoughts, here are some blogs that I have been lovin’ on for a while and probably haven’t mentioned before:
Diana broke my heart when she took a hiatus from blogging shortly after I discovered her, but she’s BACK. And hilarious and right on as ever. And she has no filter, which I LOVE.
Kelly is my new soul sister. I am really looking forward to meeting her at Blend in a few weeks! Her recipes always look amazing and beautiful. And her little girl is pretty darn adorable, too.
I’ve been reading Cassie’s blog for a while now, but I just need to point out how wonderfully awesome she is, in case you don’t already know.
This is another blog that I’ve been reading for a while, and I LOVE this girl. She is just so adorable and has such a great outlook on life. And her relationship with her husband is so cute, that it just borders on making you want to puke (but in a good way!).
Three out of four of these bloggers live in Colorado, and in fact- a ton of the bloggers that I follow are from Colorado. Maybe that’s because Colorado is awesome and where I really need to be living!
Have a FANTASTIC FRIDAY!
Do you have an iPhone? What are some blogs you’ve been loving lately?
