iPhone...just do it

It would be an understatement to say that I love my iPhone (sad, I know!). Everyday, I must tell Derek at least 5 ways my iPhone came in handy that day...for example...

* using the GPS
* checking email while I'm out, to see if someone from Craig's List emailed me back about picking up our new stroller :)
* taking pics of the kids WHENEVER and WHEREVER I want
* checking my calendar to make sure Derek isn't in a meeting before calling him at work
* we don't even have to go to Cracker Barrel to play PegJump!
While all of these things are AWESOME, I have had one complaint since buying the phone. As you know, I'm a list maker. Typically, I rely on good ol' pen and paper for this, but have tried to transition to the "notes" application on the iPhone. It was ok, but not great. It allowed me to type a list, but not to put dates, priorities, etc on my was just a list.

Last night, my iPhone love came full circle, when I found an application called "my To-Dos." I quickly downloaded it and began my list of just that...To Do's. So, here's why this app is so super cool...
1 - I can date my tasks
2 - I can prioritize my tasks (high, medium, low)
3 - I can categorize my tasks (personal, work, volunteer)
4 - I can EMAIL a task right from my list to anyone!
#4 will be quite handy when one of my To-Dos becomes a Honey-Do!

So for those of you who have an iPhone, I highly recommend adding this app. For those of you who still haven't been convinced to buy an iPhone, keep reading my blog...I'm sure to convince you one of these days! Afterall, it's a phone, it's an iPod, it's a camera, it's GPS, it's the internet, it's a calendar, it tells me the weather, it has games...and carries a simple organized list of my to-do's!

Oh yeah...apparently 3 year olds think it's super cool too! Just wait until he finds out I can download episodes of Sesame Street!

He works hard for the money

I'm not sure this is legal, but it's damn cute...that's for sure!
Hey, if China can get away with saying those gymnasts are of age, we can at least try to put our child to work! Child labor law...what's that?!?!?

Size me up

I'm a list maker...a task oriented person. Yes, I'm one of those people, who after completing a task, gets a certain high from marking it off my list. Side note - this is another feature I LOVE about my new has a notes application! I'm so anal about this notes thing, that when I do something that's not on my list...let's say, I decide to clean the kitchen (ha!)...I will then add "clean kitchen" to my list and quickly delete it or cross it off! It feels SO good to mark things off my list! I am constantly adding to my list at all hours of the day and even during the night.
Some of the things on my list right now are; upload pictures, order pictures and finish Jacob's thank you notes (I'm still waiting for him to write them himself!). Just about every day, I think to myself, "Oh, I'll do that tonight." Well, once again those things are NOT being marked off my list, because instead, I'm sitting here typing.
Anyway...on to the point of this story...
One thing that does not even earn a place on my list, but is secretly always there, is to return to my pre-pregnancy weight and be able to comfortably fit into my clothes. While I have only squeezed myself back in to one pair of my pre-pregnancy jeans and nothing else (I'd like to think it's because maybe I was just too skinny then!), I did buy a pair of shorts at AT Loft and another at NY & Co...both in a single digit size!!! Some people say that stores like these actually "downsize" their clothing to make women feel better about themselves (ie...a size 8 is really a 10 or 12). To that, I say are brilliant...and you just made me a shopper for life!
