I upgraded my iPod...finally!

I purchased my first iPod in 2006, starting slow with a 2nd generation Shuffle. I loved it so much that it didn't take long until I wanted one that would hold more songs. I received a Nano 3rd generation sometime in 2007 as a gift from my husband and I was quite happy with it. I even took the time to download photos and learn how to use it properly. In 2010 we went to Indianapolis to see Lady Gaga. She was awesome! The fact that someone broke into our car and stole our stereo and my iPod was not! When we got back in town my hubby went and bought me a new stereo and he even threw in a new iPod which by this time was an iPod 5th generation. He is the best! Well, most times anyway :o) Although I didn't quite love it the way I had loved my 3rd generation. I guess it always kind of hung over my head as a reminder of those bad boys in Indiana. In my need to upgrade I sold my 5th generation to my best friend who had lost hers and applied that cash to my new one. Great way to make us both very happy!

You can see all the different types of iPods over the years here on wikipedia.

We moved into a smaller house in 2009 and I boxed up my cd's with the hope of downloading them to digital at some point. My son volunteered, after a little prodding from me, to help me out. He did an excellent job of downloading them all for me but once that was done and I got in the mood to mess with music I realized I wanted an iPod that would hold all my music rather than just my favorite playlists. I finally got my hands on a classic iPod which I love so much I can't even contain myself! I have been having the best time listening to old tunes I haven't heard for awhile and remembering artists I had forgotten all about. What can I say, I've been listening to some awesome tunes this summer! 

I forgot to mention how great the little x-mini Uno speaker is! You must have one of these! They sell for about $29 and is the best $29 I spent for awhile. I loved mine so much I bought them for gifts until I got everybody one that I knew would enjoy it. They all loved theirs too. Of course, I am the only one I bought a purple one for :o) I liked it best but they come in an array of colors. Awesome speaker. Small, stays charged for about 18-20 hours and jams!  Great sound and for a small personal speaker I've never heard better. Get one for sure!

  1. Wow, good for you. I like that mini speaker, it's so cute.

    1. I highly recommend that little speaker. It jams!! I was so thrilled with mine I bought all my friends one as gifts when I needed to get them something. They are hooked! Great sound and runs for about 18 hours without charging. Love it! Get one :o)

      Always a pleasure to hear from you! Thanks for stopping by.

I Have Officially Retired My Ugg Boots For The Season
My Ugg boots are probably my favorite shoewear. I love them! My feet have a tendency to get cold but not while wearing these. I have read that men don't like them but I think they are cute as can be and my hubby doesn't complain. Yes, I even like them with shorts. Although I only wear them with jeans. With the sun finally coming out, sadly it's time to place them at the back of my closet.
Top: ModCloth Jeans: Levi's 515
The top I have on is the most softest thing I own and was purchased at my favorite internet clothing shop...ModCloth. It is the The-Great-Estate-Dress and is currently sold out. They have some really cool, unique items. This was listed as a dress but was a bit short for me since you can see through the bottom layer. I pulled it up a bit and it was perfect as a top with my Levis. It would be cute with leggings or a short skirt and tights too.  I'm still trying to get out of my Levis and into some more stylish outfits but I love them so. Still …

The Cabbage Patch Kids inspired crochet hat

I just love Cabbage Patch Kids! Years ago my dad went on a mission to get me one when they were hard to find. With the invent of the internet you can almost find anything these days but back in the day it wasn't so easy. He finally succeeded but there was always a story about what a time he had. He was able to get me two in the long run. The first a little boy named Bobby George (my dad's name was Bobby also) just in case he couldn't get his hands on a girl with red hair. Luckily eventually someone was able to get the girl doll for him to give to me. I was so pleased to get them and he was so happy giving them to me that it is a memory I will always treasure. Whenever I think of Cabbage Patch dolls I always think of him. I get them out once in awhile and clean them up but I hope to display them after I paint my second bedroom which I hope to make whimsical and colorful. Arlene looked like she could use a bit of sprucing up when I got her out for pictures so I'm not su…

Dreaming of the Red Hot Chili Peppers

Ok, so last night I had a dream that I was standing on the roof watching the Red Hot Chili Peppers play "The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie" and I was featured in the video. I was looking great in a cute outfit with some type of hat and having a ball! lol The next thing I know I'm running through the jungle looking worse for wear with a dinosaur chasing me.  We watched an episode of Terra Nova and then Jurassic Park III was on so I know why I was dreaming of dinosaurs but where did the Red Hot Chili Peppers come from? I was so excited I woke up and had to pee!

How cool can you get?
I love a man that cooks! Although Flea scares me a bit!
Now this is a fashion statement if I ever saw one.

Saturday was date night!

♥ Dress:  Modcloth ♥ Sweater:  Ralph Lauren ♥ Booties: Modcloth-boots
On Saturday morning snoozing late was a must after all that booze on Friday night. After finally getting up I was still tired and since my favorite show recorded the night before I wanted to watch it while I tried to wake up. I absolutely love Haven! Although it's just one more reason to stay out of Maine :o) Art got up early and went to breakfast with his brothers and washed the car so I had the house to myself. If I wanted to watch tv in the morning, why not? I mean I was going to be another year older the next day so I figured I could do whatever I wanted. Although not productive I didn't have to wonder what strange occurrences were happening in that strange little town. I did finally get up and do a bit of housework since my family were coming over the next day for cake but I only gave it a lick and a promise. Before I knew it it was time to get ready. I bought my dress from Modcloth when they had the …
