Reading on my Iphone

By far my favorite App on my iPhone is the Kindle. I had really been wanting a Kindle after going to Mexico and carrying around my 500 page Twilight book while the rest of the people on the beach were strutting around with Kindles. Apparently I was way out of the loop!!

But then Andy and I decided to upgrade our phones to an iPhone. And that is when I discovered the Kindle App for FREE!!! (Opposed to buying the Kindle for $114+) I love it! Honestly, I haven't ever really been a big reader. But in the last year, I have really enjoyed. And since have the Kindle App, it is all I want to do.

I have bought a few books from, but then me and a chick from work discovered how to share each others books on our phones! Super Cool!

I have ventured even farther. My local library now has the ability for you to check out books on your phone. Not just reading books, but audio books as well! I love this, because I can play them on the way to and from work.

Andy gets annoyed because I am always reading at home now. That I seem distant because I always have my head in my book phone. Which I find funny, because what is the difference of me looking down at a book or looking up at the TV.

Hmmm, read a book or watch the Hunting channel?!?!

I Love me Some Big Brother!

Love It, Love It, Love It!

This year it is especially good!

 The Newbies vs The Veterans

I am rooting for the Veterans. Wait...I take that back. I am rooting for all the veterans, EXCEPT for Rachel! Can not stand that woman! Especially after watching last nights episode!

I do feel really bad for the newbies. You finally get picked to be on the Big Brother show and then in walks 6 of the best players in Big Brother history. They are obviously going to be intimidated. And the newbies so far are getting their butts whopped by the veterans.

Does anyone else watch this show! Are you as pumped up as I am!!!

Then and Now!

Last week Hunter and I went to visit my cousin Becca who just had a new baby boy, Jayden! He was a doll! Too Cute! I could hold him forever!

Jayden's newborn clothes were too big for him, so I offered to bring by Hunter's preemie clothes. Getting Hunter's baby clothes brought back a lot of emotion. It is crazy to look back and see how small he really was. It just didn't seem like it at the time.


But look at him now!

Weekend Recap!

Friday at work we had a party in honor of my birthday! Everyone brought in snacks, and boy were they E-X-C-E-L-L-E-N-T!!! We had: chocolate chip cookie bars, meatballs, pizza cream cheese dip, 7 layer Mexican Dip, Buffalo Chicken Bites, Chocolate Cake, Hot Wings from Frisco's (Hell Ya!) and these cupcakes! Too cute!!! They look like little pies! Great start to the weekend!

Saturday: My 28th Birthday!!

Happy Birthday to me...I spent nearly the whole day cleaning the house and doing laundry. Ohhh...Ahhh! How exciting! But I felt so much better afterwards know it was clean.

That evening Andy and I went on a date night, which is rare!
We went to Columbia to HuHot (cashed in my coupon for a free dinner because it was my B-Day, score!)
Went to Coldstone and got a couple Cake N'Shakes and sat outside and enjoyed the evening.

After completely making ourselves miserable on ice cream, we went to the new Transformers movie. It was pretty good!!
It was a late night, but a GREAT night! We need to do this more often!

We spent most of the morning outside before the extreme heat kicked in. My cousin Sean dropped off this pool for Hunter on Saturday. Hunter LOVED it!!! He played in it for over two hours while I relaxed in a lawn chair and read a book. I had to pull him out kicking and screaming when it was time for lunch!
Here he is trying to blow up the pool.

Great Weekend!
