So, I told hubby "I'm going to post on the ole blogger, give me a title" and he responds "ShaQwan" so there you have post title!

I have been ADDICTED to my new phone lately. I got the LG Optimus which is one of those fancy Droid phones...I had no idea what a sheltered mobile world I was living in!! There is an APP for everything...literally. I have been spending WAY too much time surfing through the "market" which is where you get your apps from. I have of course downloaded the fun apps like these:

This is the FxCamera. Basically you can take pics on your phone with many different settings. FishEye, toycam, and polaroid to name a few. It is really neat and being that I love taking pics anyway this just tickles me pink!

Then there is Pandora...wait for it..."ahhhh" (that's the angels singing). I have heard of Pandora for a while, but never gave it a shot because, let's face it, I'm not an "Internet radio" type. Plus now that I am a mommy, my Internet surfing days are O-V-E-R! Which is a good thing and a bad. I spent way too much time on here and now I get to spend that time chasing my little man around the house and keeping him out of the dog food bowl :) Anyway, back to Pandora it is an Internet radio, awesomeness!!! You tell Pandora a song or artist you like and it creates a channel for you of songs it thinks you will like based on that one song/artist you gave it. How awesome is that? It is my BEST FRIEND at work. There are days that I don't think I am going to make it through and it never fails those are the days that the radio stations play NOTHING, so now I can turn to Pandora! YAY :)

Brody is growing big and strong. He is trying to "walk" but just falls flat on his face. He did have his first rib and corn on the cob this past week. Let me tell you, he may only have 7 (yes SEVEN!) teeth but that boy took care of the rib and cob like a pro...not a thing left on either!

He is 10 months old and I have 5 weeks til Savannah is supposed to be here...and have not started Brody's birthday party. I promised myself I would have his First Birthday (awe :( ) totally planned before Savannah's arrival...that means I gotta get busy!
Also, this past weekend we got a lot accomplished (at least I think so). I was able to get laundry done, the "house" (or our part of it) cleaned, groceries purchased, and...drum roll please...started painting Savannah's furniture. Due to the rain we have had lately, it isn't finished so a post will be coming later with pics! Savannah is going to be sleeping in my crib from when I was an infant. At least while we are still living with my parents and her and Brody are sharing a room. Once we move out we will have to purchase a bedroom set for one of them. But anyway, Savannah's bed has a matching bed for her doll...awe so cute! I am trying to paint everything to match and give it a fresh look. I can't wait to share pics once its all finished!
We also were able to accomplish fixing the laptop!!! This is my biggest YAY for the weekend!!! Around Christmas we were hit with the Anti-Virus Virus, a very mean bug. :( And it took the laptop down, I thought she was a goner. Thankfully after many weeks of working on it and my dad even taking it on at times. We were able to get her some "medicine" and now she is back up and running like a beauty. I cannot tell you how much I missed having my latptop to surf FB and post to Blogger in bed while hubby watches TV! So glad you are back Miss Laptop...mommy has missed you!
This coming weekend I hope to finish Savannah's furniture and couple of open ended craft projects. I am also having pictures taken...I'm really nervous about those because of my body and the way I see it. I have always been very hard on myself, ALWAYS thought I was as big as a house. I look back at pictures of before I was pregnant and look in the mirror thinking "who am I" haha I would give ANYTHING to look like that again, when I remember taking the pic thinking I was HUGE! Funny how things change huh!? But anyways I didn't have pics taken while I was pregnant with Brody because I was too scared but for some reason this time I was like 'what the heck, who cares' and I am doing this Saturday. I cannot wait though to have Savannah and start working out again...I really do miss sit-ups, push-ups, bench press, running, etc. I sound like a total JOCK but I do! Everyone around me is working out while I sit here and the only thing I'm working out is my arm muscles to get Little Debbie to my mouth...haha but boy do I love the taste of her!! :)
Sunday is Super Bowl! YAY, that means it is chow time and commercials. Yea, it's sad but that's what I look forward to the most about Super Bowl Sunday. I wish it was Super Bowl Saturday though, who can we talk to about that!? ;)
Well looks like that is a wrap! It's 10:02 and officially 30 minutes past my bed time. Good night yall, hope your small Friday tomorrow is perfect and fast!

FYI...FSU has the number recruiting class in college football...WEEEE'RRREE BACCKKKK! ;)

Thank you for learning how to use the Droid phone so I don't have too. Just kidding! I just downloaded FxCamera. (Which I didn't know existed until I read it on your blog). Thanks for the great new apps and info! Can't wait to try them out myself!

Awesome. You will LOVE the camera. I can't believe what all these little phones do. What apps do you have? Do you suggest any?
