I wanted to share some of my favorite things that I have received or purchased within the past year. I’m a total consumer, I admit that. But almost all of these have helped me make my life easier, more relaxed, and helped with time management.
I should have switched to Apple over a year ago. I’m in love with my Macbook. I got rid of my Dell laptop on Craig’s list and saved up money to buy my Macbook. One of the best things I’ve done in 2009. I have no clue on what I was doing at first, but took some great FREE classes at the Apple store.
Angry Husband’s cellphone died in September. He could not find any Verizon phones that he wanted. He had been begging for an iPhone for months. I really really really loved my Blackberry Curve. But since we have a shared cellphone plan, I agreed to switch. I love all of the FEATURES that the iPhone has. I’m not really sold on AT&T’s service though. Plus, it’s a lot harder to text message. But overall, the pro’s outweigh the con’s.
My BFF, Stacey, is an avid Rainbow Sandal wearer. Really, these are the only shoes that Stacey wears. She hates shoes. I’ve always been a Birkenstock girl. I’ve had Birkenstock’s since 8th grade. My friend, Londie, bought me my first pair of Rainbow Sandals. I’ve been an addict ever since then. I have two pairs. I like the WestCape style. They are a bit wider. I usually buy the men’s style.
After buying my Macbook, I wanted the perfect bag to carry it around in. I searched high and low for weeks. I wanted something durable, yet stylish. I selected the Oakley Vertical Computer Bag 3.0. It comes in titanium and black. I have the titanium one. Angry Husband covets this bag. He borrowd it recently for a business trip, and he has raved ever since about this bag.
I recently purchased this pan to make these brownies. I’ve had cheesecake pans before, but I think they got lost in the pan graveyard. I was amazed at how easy the brownies came out of this pan. Angry Husband was just as impressed as I was. I can see many more treats being made with this pan. I don’t think I will ever make square brownies again.
I got this purse in the Spring. I use it all the time. I like the fact the it’s big, but not huge. I can fit my wallet, my cellphone, keys, and many other things in it. I also am able to fit my DSLR camera (Nikon D60), when I need to. I don’t have to carry two bags anymore (camera bag and purse). The strap adjust so you can wear it messenger style or you can make it smaller and put it on your shoulder.
I was introduced to the Expedit Shelving Unit by my BFF, Stacey. She used these in her business. I recently did a project in my hallway closet using this shelving unit. We have begun a makeover on Angry Toddler room also. I have this shelf turned sideways in his closet for toy storage.
Oakley iPhone Case V.2
This was the first case, and probably only case I will get for my iphone. Yes, it is huge, and industrial looking. But it’s also solid, and very easy to remove. It is made of rubber. I’ve dropped my iPhone many many many times, and this case has protected it perfectly.
I’m a runner, I swear! I just haven’t had a ton of time lately to run, and to also post about it. I haven’t done a race since the 4th of July. Ye gads, that’s a long time. But race season is coming up. I purchased the lululemon Flow Y Bra IV earlier in the Spring. It is my official race sports bra. I love it. It also has removable cups that you put inside it. Trust me, the cups make a difference.
Apple TV was actually Angry Husband’s Christmas gift last year from my mom. I use it as much as he does. After asking around, not that many people know about Apple TV. It has really changed our life. I use it mostly for turning on my iTunes with our surround sound, and/or putting on movies for Angry Toddler. Angry Toddler can visually see what movies we have on Apple TV, and tell me what he wants to watch. I love Angry Toddler watching Apple Tv, because we don’t have to forward through all the commercials. I’m sure you’ve bought a DVD lately, and seen that code for “digital copy”. Well you can input the code into Apple TV. I promise to do an instruction vlog about Apple TV soon.
