IPOD Excitment

Wow! For years now I have wanted an Ipod but never bought one because a stubborn side of me wouldn't let me and we didn't have the money. As a reward for exercising for 6 months I bought an Ipod shuffle. This $45 gift has made me feel as if today was Christmas, the thrill that went through my spine when the FedEx truck pulled up could have powered all of Arizona. My hands were shaking when I opened the box and my kids (who were hanging over my shoulder) couldn't believe that Mom had bought something for herself and not for them. I even had Apple engrave my name on it for free. I am so excited- can you tell! hehe Now I just need to figure out how to use it- which will be a blast. Here are some pictures because I want to remember the day I received my first Ipod- b/c I have a feeling there will come a time when my children will look at me and ask, "What is a CD, Cassette, DVD, and Blu-ray?"
It's so small and so cute! Look at the package so pretty!
I put the penny here so you can really see how small it is.
It has a clip so I can use it to exercise with. Even the directions are teeny!
HOW MUCH FUN IS THIS!

Cool. What's an Ipod shuffle? Just kidding. Way to go. Every mom needs a treat now and then. Good choice.

Congrats! I remember how excited I was when Santa surprised me with my iPod. It is totally not something I would buy for myself. Enjoy it!

So tiny and cute! Just don't loose it! I have thought about getting one myself, and have decided against it. I go through so many cell phones each year, a tiny i-pod has no chance. Maybe this will inspire me to get one too. Have fun learning how to use it.

I bought mine last year for Christmas and had similar feelings. It was the first time in a long time that I had been so excited over a gadget....then I had baby #3 and hardly listen to it anymore. :(

Awesome! We are total Apple fans at our house, and Jake says they always make the best out-of-box experiences. Meaning it's fun to unwrap them from their boxes.
