Guess what guys! I've finally joined the 21st century! I've been using a Samsung Convoy flip phone for probably the last five years. It's a good little phone. I can make calls. I can text. What more does a girl need? My husband is just the opposite. He got a smart phone pretty much as soon as they came out. He kept offering to upgrade my phone, but I'm a cheap-o who didn't want to pay for a big data plan and my phone worked just fine thank you very much.
That's not to say I never thought about getting one. I spend a lot of time online. My laptop is on pretty much all the time when I'm at home. Then we decided to change up our cell phone plans and switch companies. After looking around, we found I could get all the texting and minutes I need (read- not very many, since I'm not a big phone user) and a miniscule data plan using Husband's old smart phone for less than we were paying for the flip phone.
And guess what, I kind of love it. When I get up in the morning, I no longer fire up the laptop while I make my coffee. I can check my email, Facebook messages, play some Scrabble, and read Bloglovin posts on my cell using the house WiFi. I actually spend less time online now, because it's hard to get sucked into the internet black hole on my slow, baby cell phone screen versus the laptop.
One thing I have enjoyed is finally being able to join Instagram. If you want to see what projects I'm working at, or would like to see more pictures of my monster kitten, Honey Badger, known for occasionally photo bombing my blog pictures, feel free to follow me. Above, you can see my latest finish in progress- log cabin pillow covers that have been on my WIP list for almost a year.
