About a week ago, I decided to take the plunge and get an iMac. I’m beyond excited because this means that I can get Photoshop and Lightroom, which I’ve never had. I’m really looking forward into delving into editing photos right after my shoots, which I’ve never been able to do. I know there is a lot to learn, but I’m more excited by the possibilities.
In the meantime, I’ve stumbled across a fun little site called Picnik. I’ve been spending some time playing around with the photos from Rachel Shoemaker’s shoot. While it doesn’t allow me to do all of the things Photoshop does, it’s not bad. Kind of fun! Here are a couple I did just playing around…

I’m thinking about switching from WordPress to Blogger. Does anyone out there use Blogger? I don’t really care for the templates on wordpress…they’re too limiting. If anyone has used Blogger and/or WordPress, would you care to give me the pros and cons?

After our fun outing on Valentine’s Day outing at Walmart, Tyler had the new phone buzz. He was so excited at the possibility of getting a new phone that we decided to go to Sprint that next day and see what plans and phones Sprint had to offer. We were pleased to find out that not only did they have a selection of really cool phones, but we also were eligible for a $150 credit to upgrade!
Tyler got the Sanyo S1 in black. He was so excited that Sanyo came out with yet another slim bar phone that he had to have it. While it’s longer and wider than the old one that he used to have and love (he has compared every single phone to the one he used to have, and none have come close to measuring up), it has a lot of features that he missed after switching from Sanyo.
I, on the other hand, had to have a phone with texting capabilities. I decided to get the LG Rumor. I had never purchased an LG before so I didn’t know what to expect. But other than the poor photo qualities of the phone, I absolutely love it. It has great graphics, really cool ring tones, and it slodes to reveal a texting keyboard. And, it works at Ivy Tech in the classrooms whereas my Samsung didn’t receive good enough reception and was always on roam.
I can’t wait until next month when I actually have a texting plan. And, we also upgraded our plan to include no roaming. That means that from now on when I visit my parents up north (and when we visit Hawaii in May!), I won’t have to pay roaming charges because Sprint does not have a local tower. Although it’s a little more expensive than what we were paying, we think it will save us in the long run because we usually had texting and/or roaming charges tacked on every month.
