miss me?

Yes, I have been occupied as of late. Have you noticed?

I have good reasons too.

1. The iPhone
I always told myself I wouldn't get caught up in the hype and ever get one. I am now eating my words. By the way, Words with Friends is awesome. So is the Scrabble app. Pretty much everything about the iPhone is time-consuming and addictive. You have been warned.

2. Christian's winning streak
How great is it to watch your favorite actor go on to win 3 major awards this year AND have his picture be included in every major magazine and news outlet? Super. What next? Oh yeah...a little franchise called Batman. Maybe you've heard of it... ;)

3. Lark Rise to Candleford
This has saved me during many late nights I've had lately. So much so I would actually hope to be up in the night so I could watch it. Never heard of it? Well, you are not the only one. I wish I had a $1 for every quizzical look I received when saying the title. I'm bummed to be currently caught up to the latest episode only to find out the BBC has canceled the show. Why get rid of a good thing?

4. Bundle of Joy


Am I off the hook?

4. Adorable. Congrats!

I could copy and paste your blog post into mine.

My iPhone is my fourth child, Christian Bale is one of the few actors I consider super hot, I looove LarkRise (I didn't know it was going to be canceled:), and I too have been busy with a new bundle of joy:).

We do forgive you as long as you keep the kids and the iPhone. If you are caught up on the sparky lark TV show then try Downton Abbey. It's on Netflix. Debbi and I have been watching it and really enjoy it.

you have every excuse!!! so cute! love the last picture!

i don't have an iphone and am probably one of the ONLY people on this earth that won't get one. i have a mad uno app on my sprint phone that is a total time waster. love it!

my late night saving grace has been the travel channel...

Your new bundle of joy is soooooo adorable!! We have a new bundle of our own, so I totally understand your blog being neglected. Mine has too! Glad you are back!

JoLynn said...

Welcome back! You have been missed!

Neglecting your blog? You'd think you had a baby or something! Oh yeah. And she is absolutely adorable!!! Congratulaions! Also, I love my iphone too! I got mine for Christmas the year before last from my husband. I don't think I would have bought one on my own, back then I thought a phone was just a phone. Boy! Was I wrong! We should totally play words with friends! :)

If you are nursing, there are a few apps to help you remember how long and what side you started. I found them because I was sleep deprived with my newborn and couldn't remember what side I started on and thought, "There has to be an app for this." Lo and behold!
The iphone is the perfect baby companion. I have a hard time sitting still and so when baby is eating it helps me stay put. With one hand I can do FB, Twitter, shop, e-mail, and, yes, even post to my blog.

I have some of my baby's massiveness to my iphone. Because it helps me feed him as long as he needs to eat :).
