Back to normal....we'll sortof

Sorry I've been totally absent. Guess what. Hubby's home! He got home Friday. Life just makes more sense when he's home. Probably wont be getting around to do much social networking for a week or so.....I'm barely getting in my workouts as it is. I just (un)officially made this recovery week. Sorry peeps. Bear with me. I'll be back to a routine in a little while. In other exciting news - I got an iPhone. I LOVE it. I'm totally wondering why there are still people out there without this little handheld piece of goodness. And wtf took me so long? I am shocked by the myriad of apps available. Crazy. So........, which ones do I need? :) I am looking for a case as well. Anybody have a good recommendation? I feel like a tool asking for advice just after I told you I was blowing you off for a few more days, but I know the iPhone cult wont let me down.

Hi! I'm Erin said...

If you get any good case suggestions, let me know! I had one that I loved (it was really just a leather sleeve with a mesh bottom so you could hear the speaker) but I lost it. I couldn't find a decent replacement so now I'm stuck with one I don't like :-(

YAY for the hubby being home! I wish I could help you with the apps, but I do not have anything like that :(

You luckyyy, Iphones are SWEEEET :)

Molly said...

That's great the hubs is home, have fun!!!

No iphone for me, so can't help you there. Although I know they have an app that counts your calories for you, which might be helpful for your weight loss goal...

The iPhone is AMAZING!! You will love it. I just got mine this summer and I am still wondering why I went w/o for so long. (I was with Verzion before though and personally think they have better service but I can settle for AT&Ts service for the phone.)

Umm, I don't really have any cool apps - facebook, Twitter, Words with Friends is fun if you know others with an iPhone, umm, Drunk Texts from Last Night is great for a laugh. I like the "Lose It" app to track what I eat. Oh, and you can get the Amazon Kindle for free with the Amazon Kindle app and read on the go.

Yay, for the hubby being home. Life does just make more sense when you are together.

I'll get my iphone this summer when my verizon service expires. I am a little scared about staying on line more than i already am:) Yay for hubby!

I have the palm pixie but I find that a LOT of the apps and more in general-- the phones-- are very similar.

You need:
"Where"-great app, helps you in in unfamiliar areas
"Fandango"- Movie sched in the palm of your hand
"Coin Flip"- for those tough decision.
I know everybody loves Pandora, or similar apps, but I use my Ipod.

mm... that's it for now :)

Yay for hubby being home! I love my Iphone too!! I have an otter box case, pretty durable I think.

Must have Apps:
The Weather Channel
Shop Shop- for making grocery lists!You can cross stuff off and everything!
MobileRSS- Google Reader
Pandora
Kindle
Redbox- if you have those around where you live
Blogpress- Blog on the go!

All these were free!

I heart my iphone too. I have all kinds of crazy apps but most of them I don't use and are there b/c hubby put them there =).

X-Country2 said...

Yay for the husband being back!

Ali said...

the iphone is life changing!

I use tweetie for twitter, and the facebook app everyday. I love the period tracker. Shakeit ... it is fabulous take polaroid pictures ... it is a must. Shazam is fun, it recognizes any song.

I could go on forever!

Don't be apologizing for being anti-social ! You have a reason! Enjoy having your hubby home! I too don't have a an iphone. I'm with Verizon and love their service...but am so jealous of your iphone!

Meg said...

I'm so happy your guy is home, enjoy your time together! I don't have an iphone, yet...I feel so behind the times now!

Best iPhone app ever is Google Maps. It is almost scary how cool it is. But that is an easy one.

I have a Blackberry (wife has an iPhone). I liked it so much I got an iTouch (which is like an iPhone sans phone, but will work around the house on a WiFi connection.

Anne said...

Very cool that hubby is home...and very funny indeed that he's the one I ran into at Costco in Brossard, Qu├ębec ;) ...or someone who thinks just like him :)

Amy said...

I just asked if the hubs was back on FB. No need to answer as I see he is. Yippeeee!

I don't have an iphone b/c I LOVE Verizon. If they offered it w/ that service I'd consider it. Until then, it's a Blackberry for me.

Enjoy the downtime....and time w/ hubs. We'll catch ya later!

Anne Marie said...

Saw your blog title and I liked it;-) I live in wine country and my DH's a winemaker so I live by it too!

Tara said...

Dang girl...your team stomped the hell outta the Colts. Congrats! They came out fighting and didn't stop; it was a great game. I really enjoyed it.

e-mail (tara.fuqua@gmail.com) me your address and I'll send you your REI card!!!!

Missy said...

NO iPhone here, c'mon Verizon:) Enjoy time with hubs, we can wait.....

Keith said...

Hubby's home, so I know what the priority is. Enjoy yourself. We'll still be here.

Now I'm gonna surf for apps. I see an iPhone in my future!

KK said...

Ditto to Amy on the phone comment.

Also, sooo glad your hubby is back. Life does make sense when they're around. Well put, my friend!
