Don't Stop Believing

I've patiently awaited the availability of the iPhone through Verizon. I've watched as my other friends switched providers, gotten their cool new phones with the touchscreens while I clicked away on my Blackberry. I watched them play with their neat little apps while I tried to install Twitter and wait for the hourglass to stop turning so I could actually make a call.

But I love Verizon. I've been with them since college (and that's about 15 years) and their coverage is great, their service is great...so I stuck by them, knowing that they would come through for me in the end.

I love it when a company really gets it marketing right. When a commercial speaks directly to me and I know they've really done their research and care about their target audience.

This one, it's like they've been reading my thoughts. Seriously. I saw this yesterday while painting my son's room and I yelled "Yes! That's me they are talking to!" Mike and Walker just ignored me.

Anyone else have this type of euphoric reaction to this commercial?

  1. Yes! I'm right there with ya! I've only ever had Verizon (since college, too) and I've been holding out until they got the iPhone. I don't even have a smart phone...that's how old school I am. I can't wait until 2.10.11!

  2. looove it! i had AT&T when I lived in Louisiana and when I moved to SC (6 years ago) I knew I had to switch. So many dropped calls and terrible service. So I made the switch to Verizon in 2004 and haven't looked back. I've had an LG flip phone, the Blackberry Pearl, and now I'm hanging in there with the Blackberry Curve. My parents still have AT&T and have tried to convince me to switch just because of the iPhone, but I knew I could hang in there and wait and be patient. I LOVE Verizon and no iPhone could make me go back to AT&T.

    But I am SO EXCITED that Verizon is finally getting the iPhone! SO EXCITED!

    Now TC is telling me I need to wait for the new iPhone to come out (in July??) instead of getting this one in February. Doesn't he know what kind of torture that will be?

  3. LOL - and you forgot to add that our entire family has Verizon. To switch would be high treason!

Come On Get Happi with Happikins™

One of my girlfriends is a fabulous entrepreneur with several successful businesses under her belt. Her most recent endeavor reaches past general consumerism and takes a creative and fun approach to the impact we make on the environment.

Meet Happikins: There are 18,760 pounds of unnecessary lunchtime waste generated by the average elementary school each year. Paper napkins contribute to this waste — and they're also a drain on expenses. Did you know most kids use $200 worth of paper napkins a year?
Happikins are reusable cloth napkins designed specifically for kids. They can even be used as place mats for children who have food allergies. Happikins™ are a fun and easy way to teach your child the importance of making smart environmental choices. Oh, and wiping the crud off the corners of their mouths. You can choose from 3 sets of Happikins:
Each set of Happikins comes with five napkins and a durable pouch that makes a nice home for the napkins and fits nicely in a lunchbox. You can ev…

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …
