iPad & iPhone....and me!

I didn't have much time to contemplate decorating this weekend, so no new ideas or new loves came to mind. I was too busy WINNING my new iPad!!! That's right, I won it!! At my company's Xmas party. It was probably the most fun I've had at a Christmas party in quite some time. They did a casino themed night, and gave us "funny money" to gamble with.  At the end of the night, you could pool your winnings with your spouse and bid on "auction" items (aka door prizes!).  My husband and I were #2 in "money" totals ($71,500!), only $500 behind the leaders!  They were after the 40 inch flat screen TV, so we decided to bid on the iPad. I mean, when else would we have the chance to get a FREE iPad? (not to mention, there are so many other things going on in our life right now, an iPad is nearly the last thing I could justify spending money on right now...) So we "won" the iPad, and it cost us $57,000 of our winnings. The rest of our "money" went to buying raffle tickets (at $1,000 each) for the Grand Prize (a 3 night stay at a Panorama condo, that sleeps....get this.... FIFTEEN people!! [5,000 sq ft]).  We only walked away with the iPad, but I'm not complaining! 

It was quite the night!! (not to mention, I just picked up my new iPhone 4 only hours before!!). Now I'm just waiting on my new iPhone cases that I ordered on eBay....

Now I'm trying to find cool apps to put on my iPhone!! Any suggestions?


  1. Thats awesome Krystal, I have to say I'm pretty jealous, I want both those things, and If i could justify getting an iPad I would ask for one from everyone. But oh well, still awesome! Sound like lots of fun!
