Announcements of the Awesome variety

1
I've finally joined the ranks of the cell phone elite. Yesterday, on the day I could finally upgrade my slow, nothing special cell phone, I headed over to Verizon on my lunch break and BAM! iPhone 4S owner here. The phone lady (yes, that was her name) tried to give me an 8GB iPhone 4. I set her straight. And, because I don't understand the point of buying a white phone, and iPhones don't come in purple, I chose the black one.
I'm the bomb, yo.

















My lock screen wallpaper is cooler than
yours!

Today is my "second opinion" ENT appointment. I'm hoping this doctor has a better diagnosis than, "Oh, you're dizzy? Here, use this nose spray...THAT WON'T HELP AT ALL!" Because, as you'll see from #3, I'm going to need to NOT be dizzy for the near future.

It looks like I'm going to need to get on with my plan to create something to hang my race medals. 











Not only am I registered for the Tar Heel 10-miler in April, but now I'm being coerced into also registering for another half marathon (RunRaleigh half), also in April, by Alyssa's friend Michael (who ran his first full marathon this past weekend in Myrtle Beach).

He's the tall one.














I've decided that I don't want to run any race alone, and Michael has promised me that if I sign up for the RunRaleigh half, he'll sign up for the Tar Heel 10-miler. (He knows his audience).

It would be awesome to go from zero medals to three
medals in less than four months.




















So, I haven't made a final decision yet but as we all know, I'm a sucker for peer pressure. Plus, I'm prepared in the running fuel department.


Hopefully someday soon the thought of consuming these won't make me gag.

OH! And, remember those Legos I ordered? Well, after long last, I bring to you....dun dun duuuunnnn!...the reason for the Legos.
How frickin sweet is this?!
















The only problem with this little piece of awesome is that, once there are Legos on it, it gets kind of sharp and as we all know, I don't need any help hurting myself on inanimate objects. It's also pretty thick. I decided last night to order a smooth case also, and because Amazon has its funny rules, it was cheaper for me to order three cases than it was for me to order one and pay the shipping.


If you have an iPhone, has it changed your life?

Should I go for the half marathon in April?

Don't lie, you wish you had a Hunger Games phone wallpaper.

  1. You're right, I'm pretty jealous of your Lego case! My iPhone case is falling apart (I guess you aren't supposed to drop it 8 times a day), so I'm going to have to scour Etsy to find anything remotely as cool. Of course you should go for the half in April! You are already trained and the medal is pretty sweet!

  2. I recommend checking out Amazon, too. It was seriously cheaper for me to buy three than one. And two of them are pretty sweet :)

    1. I had a keyboard on my old phone and never even used it. Get an iPhone! I think we can group FaceTime chat. I *think*. That would just be awesome.

  4. I do not have a smart phone, but at least I don't have my flip phone anymore! Someday I hope I have a smart phone. #jealous!

    Love the legos case!

  6. I love my iphone so much, especially because it has the coolest case ever :)

  7. I've never wanted to give into the iPhone 4s but after watching Big Bang Theory, I just want Siri to call me sexy. I do like my droids but I haven't actually used anything more than an iTouch so I don't know if an iPhone is awesome or not. There are some apps I want off the iPhone that I can't have. Boo! I thought I was the only one who injured myself on everything.

    1. Mine currently calls me "awesome" but I do like the idea of making it call me sexy.

  8. Did you see my wallpaper, or is that another crazy Hunger Games coincidence?

    You could have said Mike was the white one. It's not racist if it's true.

    DO THE HALF MARATHON!!!

  9. You're going to get nothing but peer pressure here to run that half in April! You are already prepared for longer runs. Just repeat the last 7 weeks of whatever training plan you were using, if you liked it. PS- I like Mint Chocolate gu.

    1. She knew she was going to get peer pressure here, but she posted it here, which means she is going to do it.

  11. You definitely need to sign up for the half in April! Welcome to the world of the new iPhone! I love mine for several reasons but most importantly it keeps me from getting lost.
