I think I'm becoming an electronic junky!

I have to admit . . . I've been accumulating some crazy electronics. What is soooo crazy is I'm so not the electronic gadget kinda girl - at all! It started with one of those tiny digital picture key chain. Now, I know that is not very technical - BUT then I got a digital picture frame - I thought I could use for displaying pictures of my art {maybe - I don't know!} Then I got an MP3 player - Now for me, that is a big deal! But I got even braver and purchased my mamma-jamma camera!


Nice picture of my camera?? I took that with my webcam that I got last mother's day {another tech purchase??} Not only did I buy just the camera, I also got my new love - that lens you see attached that I really don't know what it's called - but I love her! I was just told to look for the number 2.8 - and I did - and I'm sooo not disappointed!

Of course I'm getting to my latest purchase . . . .


My hp mini-notebook! Look how freakin' tiny she is!?


And she weighs something like -3 pounds! Of course then you put the battery in and she is bumped up to +3 pounds - but she is still light as a feather! Now, I know a few of you are Mac snobs - can't say I blame you AND once the computer at home gives out, I'm seriously thinking of going that way! But for now - it's an hp and what a fantastic idea!! Perfect for all the parking lot waiting - waiting room waiting - and any other kind of waiting I do!

Maybe now I can comment on some blogs!!! I'm so excited!

All I can say is, "Happy Birthday to me!" ------- WAIT, I don't have birthdays - they are anniversaries . . . anniversary to my 29th birthday! So, "Happy Anniversary to me!" {much better!}

BTW - the leg warmers can be found at Target in baby sock isle! Now, the pair Em has on in the picture came from a boutique here in town back in the day when I had only 1 child! {Yes, I did only have one - briefly - but I did have only one!} They are called baby legs and they are much longer than the typical baby leg warmers. But you can find them also in the same section at Target! When Hudson was smaller, I put them on him, but they prevented him from crawling! A baby spin out! HYS-terical!

And let me add - we have another beauty that sports the leg warmers . . . . meet Ella . . . Warning: You are about to crack UP! Allison - I got the same pair for Em!! That baby is too funny! I like how you have them over her heels - that is the way I wore mine - because remember . . . . I was really cool!

It is so small, and cute! I like the swirly pattern on the top. But I wouldn't use it much! I don't go anywhere, ever! Really, I leave the house {maybe} once a week! So no jealousy issues there!

Now your camera and lens! MAJOR jealousy going on there! :o)

Hope you have a FABULOUS weekend!

Happy Birthday! (I mean anniversary..lol). Loving your camera and your notebook! Lucky girl!

Kim said...

Yea... you got a computer! You deserve one for all your hard work!

Erika said...

If I had that notebook maybe then my DH and I would quit fighting about computer time. Wait, we'd probably end up fighting over who got to use the notebook...

What an awesome early "anniversary" present!

Nice laptop - what a perfect size and how cool will you look in any waiting area. Yes, you have to go Mac once the home computer is done. It's awesome.

Danine said...

Well Happy Birthday to you and I'm learning you gotta spoil yourself every now and then too!

Love the mini, love the camera more and enjoy both!

Okay Ms. Techy, I have a question for you. How are you planning to access the net from parking lots? Are you going to start hanging out at Sonic or McDonalds while you wait?? =) Panera and Starbucks also have WiFi. You'll have to let me know how it goes, I might start taking Joe's Macbook with me while I wait in the line at school.

Lorrie said...

Ha! You sound like a tech head to me. You site is so cute it's like drinking root beer and eating red vines. Way too much sugar...but it's just soooo fun!

And you are too young to start having anniversaries for your birthday. Wait till you hit 40 or 50...then you can have the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, annual remembrance of your 29th birthday.

Oh Man... we ARE kindred spirits!!!! I love me some tech toys... I literally cried when I found out that the movers had taken my iPod Touch... careful... it quickly becomes a bad habit... I went through about 5 digital cameras in 2 years... there's always a better model!
