Geeks, S'Mores, and Just Dance

What a full weekend!  It's amazing how just one extra day off with the hubby can make the weekend seem so much more relaxing and fun.  Here's a re-cap on our Memorial weekend adventures:

The BFF and I :)
Hubby rockin' the nerd glasses

We started the festivities early with a Geek Pride party on Friday.  :)  I was pretty proud of my Rubik's Cube T-shirt (it made me think of the T-shirts that Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory wears).  The food was awesome and geeky; I wish I hadn't forgotten to take pictures of it.  We had Tetris shaped brownies.  Little Pacman cheeses.  Pocky sticks. The whole geeky works!

LOL! Such a goofball...

On Saturday we had a little BBQ at our place.  Hubby grilled burgers and hotdogs, we even tried grilled corn on the cob for the first time. :)

It turned out deliciously! 
After it got dark, we roasted marshmallows over the grill.  I think this was one of my favorite parts of the day. :)  It looks like we are camping and it's just in our front yard!  

Then we brought the party inside... :)  Just Dance is seriously AMAZING.   And it's a great workout too.  :)  I would exercise all the time if my friends came over and played this game with me haha.  

All in all, it was a great weekend of rest, fun with family and friends, and a time to remember and be thankful for the privilege of living in this country. Thanks to all the faithful men and women who sacrificed their time, comfort, families, and lives so that we could live our lives in freedom.  I truly am grateful for the blessings we have because of your dedication to our country.

I dropped my phone.... (Part 2)

Remember this post?  The one with the happy ending, because even though my phone attempted suicide it took my advice and lived?

Of course you do.  I posted it two days ago.  Well... the unthinkable has happened.  I kid you not, FIVE MINUTES after I clicked "Publish" on that post my phone re-attempted (and succeeded) its suicide mission.


I can't even believe I did this.  The sad thing is, it happened the same way.  I totally should have known better than to put my phone in my back pocket when I went to the bathroom.  I usually don't do that.  :/  I'm actually pretty furious with myself.  :(

Hubby made a valiant effort at reviving it back to life.  He even got a flicker on the screen after all the blow drying and rice soaking.  But the poor phone just couldn't survive two potty dunks in a week.

So if I'm not answering your texts and phone calls, I apologize.  Also, if you know anyone who has a spare phone, let me know! ;)  Most people with a broken phone have told me they enjoyed the break from having to talk to everyone, but I'm feeling lonely and disconnected. I spent the morning looking online for a replacement that won't break the bank.  HA!

Rest in Peace, little phone.  I'm sorry I drowned you.  :(

I dropped my phone...

... in the toilet.  :/  Major bummer.

Don't even ask me how this happened.  I had just gotten home from work and think I must have still been in the coma induced state that hits you as soon as you leave the office and get into your car.

 I walked into the bathroom, lifted the lid, and SLIP!  Into the porcelain throne it goes.  :(

Yes, I reached in and grabbed it.  And YES, I soaked my hand in antibacterial hand sanitizer afterwards.  Yuck!

I tried soaking it in rice for a few hours, but it wasn't working so Hubby saved the day and blasted it with air from my blow dryer during commercials while we watched The Big Bang Theory.

It almost made a full recovery.  I lost all the apps that were saved on my SD card, but it miraculously saved the pictures and videos.  So thankful for that!!!!

So now I am doing a total app purge on my phone and starting over.  I had way too many pointless apps and they were major slowing down my phone.  Like the poker game I played once and haven't touched since. Or that recipe app that I barely used.  I'm trying to only download/keep ones that I actually use on a regular basis.

 So how about you guys...any recommendations on new ones I should download?  What are your top phone apps that you can't live without?
