a little update on my phone. Well a huge update. It survived. Yay for the whole rice technique! It worked. 

Bad news. As some of you may know (lucky you) I am a rather impatient person. So after a whole 24 hours of being without a phone (which is stinking hard I tell you) I decided to give up, and go buy a new phone. It really was an impetiuous move. But I did. Specifically I got this little gem

But I'm still not sure how I feel about it...any advice or tricks to change my mind?

Anyhoo, right after I got home with my new HTC inspire, new two year contract, and added internet on my data plan (stupid rule p.s.), I took my iPhone out of the rice, gave it a good charge and voilà it worked. Of course my heart was torn. Brand new phone that I had just spent a ton of money on VS. my trusty iPhone. Well, I couldn't bring myself to return the new HTC so...yeah.
My husband called first dibs though on the iPhone. Sorry guys.

On a completely different note, I got my first opportunity to give my canon rebel a real workout taking pictures of these cute kids of a friend:
Aren't they so cute in their Easter clothes?

Adorable I tell you. 

And no, they do not make me want to have children anytime soon 
(at least that's what I tell my husband...kidding honey!)
Can I just interject how difficult it is to get a screaming baby 
and a bored little boy to be happy at the same time?
However feet, are a lot easier to photograph. 

Happy Sunday!
