Week 13 - Crackberries

Hopefully I can remember all that happened last week since it flew by and I'm now (on Sunday the 5th) writing the entry for last week. (I am labeling this post for the 4th though to avoid confusion on the weeks).

The girls went home on Sunday so we spent the rest of that evening relaxing. On Monday we went to Verizon and got ourselves the new Blackberry Storms. This model has gotten some bad reviews (especially in comparison to the iPhone), but we love it so far. Verizon had a great 2-for-1 deal, plus with Dean's work discount and the portion they cover for work in general it's a great deal for us to switch our plans there. Plus Dean and I can talk free to each other, and they have this instant messenger just for Blackberry users, which Dean and I find ourselves using a lot.

On Tuesday, we won another small prize in our sweepstakes adventures. We won a year's subscription to Country Living Magazine. Nothing major, be we appreciate the prize for what it is. :-) These little wins help keep up the motivation.

The rest of the week consisted of playing with our phones, Dean had several fantasy baseball drafts, and overall busy times at work.

Saturday we had dinner with Dean's friend Keith and his wife Amy and then went over to their house for drinks. It was a great time and nice to catch up since we hadn't seen each other in a very long time. Right when we got to their house their kids were running around like crazy and we just had to have them pose for a picture after somehow one of the girl's hats ended up on Dean's head. :)
