Spring-Like!

Mother nature must have felt a little guilty for the recent below normal temperatures. There is no other explanation for the gorgeous, spring-like, weekend we were given in November! I really meant to go for a long run today but I wasn't feeling in the running spirit at all today. Thankfully I took advantage yesterday to get out for what started as a 3-miler turned very pleasant 5-miles. I also took some time to try out my new phone! Friday afternoon I convinced the hubby to go to Verizon to upgrade to the new Droid phone. It's no iPhone but it is pretty dang close. Plus, I can stay on the Verizon network and not switch to the dreaded AT&T. So far it's love! I know it's going to take awhile to discover all the phone can do. And the one great thing is I can now read blogs easier on the road!

The phone has a very nice 5 mp camera; an upgrade from my previous 1.2 mp camera phone. I also downloaded an app to take pictures in different forms. On the run Saturday I tested the polaroid function.

mid-run. Can you believe a tank top in Chicago in November?!? It was awesome!

The weekend was full of good friends, a random play at the Steppenwolf theatre, delicious meals, copious amount of wine, relaxing, cleaning, and Men Who Stare at Goats. Quick review of the movie - skip it in the theater. With the exception of a couple other moments, all the funny lines were given away in the previews. Overall a darn good weekend I only wish was a little longer!

What a fun weekend! I love taking pictures when I run. I feel like you see things differently, when are running by them!

Thanks for the tip on the movie! ;)

Have you been seeing all of verizon's ads about the AT&T network vs theirs? I saw a really funny one last night, with the iPhone and the Island of Misfit Toys.

Sounds like a great weekend. Definitly keep us updated on the phone. I'll be upgrading in a couple of months and swiching from T-mobile (they suck!) to probably verizon. I love the plaroid app. Very nice.

Hmm, I may need to check out that phone. I want an iphone, but refuse to leave Verizon.

Loving the weather here too.

I've been hearing good things about the Droid...hmmm...it seems to take great pics, so that's cool. I'm LOVING the awesome weather. It is November right?!?!?! :p

Jess said...

Ohhh I think the Droid sounds very cool. I won't switch from Verizon either, so the Droid sounds appealing.

I have been loving this weather too! I cant believe it has been so warm! I wish it could stay like this for the rest of the month! I think we are getting snow this week - at least that is what the forecast says!

Adorable polaroid function. My crappy phone does not do that.

my iphone is fun, but seriously I heart verizon and was very unhappy to leave them

Tara said...

Cool! Let me know how you like the Droid phone. I've been thinking of upgrading and I've heard a lot of different things about that phone, good and bad. I'd be interested in your thoughts. Enjoy your spring weather!
