Friday after work I headed to AT&T for a little early Christmas present to myself.
I think I've said before that my old Blackberry Pearl was dying...... that puts it mildly. It had lived a long life and was just barely hanging on. So before we reached the rather eminent bedside death scene, I decided to end its suffering and I upgraded to the new Blackberry Torch.
I LOVE IT! It's touch screen but also has a keyboard - best of both worlds. And it has a great camera (well anything was better than old Pearl).
Such a great present to myself! Marine and I have been on a budget-diet since his return from deployment. We are trying to save as much as we can so that when he gets out we'll have money to pay our bills till he finds a job. So when I told Marine I was getting a new phone even though he didn't say it, I knew he didn't really see the point.
Marine is not a techie-person and therefor seemed to think even at $99 Torch was a wasted expense. Let's just say I sent him a few pics that made him change his mind. He may now be the biggest fan Torch has.
Hey don't judge, you got to keep the romance alive somehow when your separated by 500+ miles.
Friday evening Vixen, Babbles and I had a movie and pizza night ~ Little Caesars pizza and Date Night.
It was nice to sit around and play catch up with my friends.
The pizza was good, the conversation was good, and the movie was hilarious.
If the movie wasn't already good this would have totally made it a great movie on any charts....
Saturday was Marine-Sis's 16th Birthday. I met her and Marine-Mom early and headed to the mall for a day of shopping with them.
I was along to window shop seeing as I had spent my 'blow' money of the week (ok month). I think Marine-Sis went in each and every store there was.
Whole new meaning to shopped till we dropped.
When I walked in the door at 8 pm I headed straight for my bed where I crashed and didn't move till the next morning.
Awe to be 16 again.
But to know what I know now.
