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!

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!



Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!


New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.
