- i pulled my first tick off my body. gross. (you guys- the tick had my flesh in it's mouth. omg.)
- alex had her first ice cream cone. (she's had ice cream before- we are American, duh- but she had an honest to goodness ice cream CONE all to herself.)
- i made Nutella Self Frosting Cupcakes. (INSTAGRAM IT! EAT IT! HIGH FIVE FOR THE WIN!)
- i got my first iPhone. (what? you want dinner? sorry, you'll have to wait- i'm playing Fruit Ninja & blowing up the Instagram feed.)
and there might be more- but everything is kind of hazy after the Verizon rep placed the shiny white iPhone into my sweaty hands.
"Carefull now, don't drop it..." he says, as i promtly lose my grip & am forced to perform some sort of Chris Angel Mind Freak move & miraculously catch it.
we both laugh nervously as he tells me a new screen will cost me $200. oh.em.gee.
i patiently (OH MY EFFING GOSH GIVE IT TO ME RIGHT NOW!) wait while he explains various functions & sets up my email.
as he blathers on & on about God knows what i'm
by now i've also noticed that he bares a striking resemblance to Ethan Embry (Empire Records anyone?) but unfortunately for him, his long windedness is not allowing me to appreciate this fact (i used to crush pretty hard on Ethan) and instead i find myself wanted to drop kick him & snatch my phone out of his hands. good Lord guy- be DONE already!
(um, i struggle with patience. in fact- i straight up cagefight it on a daily basis.)
finally he hands it over and the clouds part, the sun shines, & birds start singing (no, Harold Camping, it isn't the Rapture- just some chick getting her new iPhone.)
i'd love to say that i got to spend the next few hours blissfully getting to know my new phone. ...but the reality is that both girls were cranky pants & while i drove us home & got them ready for naps, the husband monopolized my phone & played Angry Birds & Fruit Ninja until the battery died.
but today it's all mine (because i'm at work of course) and i will dutifully learn the ropes & figure out Words with Friends- because i'm pretty sure that is what's required of all iPhone owners.
and here's a look @ the "firsts"
ice cream cone euphoria.
the last time with our precious Bumbleride Flyer (i sold it on ebay to make way for a double ::sadface::)
playing with my macro right before i was attacked by the tick (scarred for life)
and last but not even close to least- Nutella Self Frosting Cupcakes. they were like the Rapture...in my mouth.
and let's remember to keep the people of Joplin in our t&p's. i can't even imagine :(
