A Google Nexus 7! I've been wanting a tablet for a while now and we ordered a couple cheap off-brand ones through a Facebook co-op earlier this month. Unfortunately the deal fell through so I started researching other tablets. I narrowed it down to the Kindle Fire HD or the Nexus 7. Review after review I read recommended the Nexus 7 over the Kindle Fire HD so I told Ant that's what I wanted. I didn't expect to get it so soon, but he brought it home Tuesday night after going out for ice cream.
So far, so awesome! I love the 7'' screen. The co-op tablets were 10'', and I now that I've used the 7'' I think the bigger tablets would be too cumbersome and heavy for my liking. As someone who has the world's oldest Blackberry still in existence, I've never used any of the cool apps out there. Remember how I vicariously lived through Ant's Instagram account? Now I don't have to! I signed up for the photo sharing app and have had a lot of fun playing around with it's features. One thing I don't like about the Nexus 7 isthe absence of a rear facing camera, so it's technically not Instagram friendly, aside from selfie pictures. But, I'm crafty and I've made it work... kind of.
I've also signed up with Song Pop, DrawSomething, Words with Friends and Scramble with Friends. My screen name for everything (including Instagram) is LinzTAW (or linztaw). So find me and let's play! Not Words with Friends though, I don't like that one much. I always guess stupid three letter words like "cat," "was" or "too." And I've already gotten caught without any vowels a bunch of times. I also suck at Scramble with Friends, but it's a lot of fun.
I ended up staying home with Harry yesterday and Ant went out shopping, so because of that and everything else we've been dealing with, I haven't had a chance to get Ant or Harry a Sweetest Day gift yet. My bad! We're planning on just laying low today since Harry's still got a bit of a fever, hovering around 99 now, but maybe tomorrow or Monday I can take them to Red Lobster or something. Which I realize isn't nearly as cool as a Nexus 7, but considering my annual salary is $0, it's either that or have Ant pay for his own gift :).
Does anyone else celebrate Sweetest Day?
