I Kind of <3 my New Toy

I have to admit bloggies that this past weekend I spent inordinate amounts of time playing with an electronic toy. You see my long awaited iPhone finally arrived!!! :oP

I had been anxiously waiting since the 3Gs came out for my little friend to arrive. I am now the proud owner of only the 3rd iPhone to arrive in my small rocky mountain town. Honestly I don't know how I ever lived without one!

So I hope you'll indulge me while I experiment with some iPhone blogging. I apologize in advance if the picture quality is not fantastic but I figure it's worth a shot since it may make it easier to update on the run. :o)

Let's recap Sunday!

Unfortunately the Fiance has been completely flu ridden for days now. While I spent most of Sunday morning tending to sicky (:oP) I was able to convince him to head out for a bit in the afternoon.

Our destination? A local farmer's market:




As the summer nears the end the produce is getting much better. I remember when I first attended this market in the early summer - the selection was rather meagre. This time around however I managed to score some nectarines, tomatoes, peppers, and prune plums (a fan favourite). Check out my lovely locally grown loot:




After some shopping we stopped for a bite. I thought the occasion called for a late breakie but I let sicky choose the restaurant. We ended up in a German restaurant we had visited before. Last time we were there they were serving a morrel mushroom appetizer with spaetzle on the side. This time the dish looked a little different:




Giant fail! :o( You could barely see the itty bitty pieces of mushroom swimming in the sauce. I rescued what mushrooms I could and ate them with a bit of spaetzle. On the whole I ate very little but at least I got sicky out for a bit.

A little while later in the afternoon I snacked on a pretzel I had picked up at a German bakery. It was delish as usual:




My brunch may have been a giant fail but I couldn't help but be pleased as punch at the state of my fruit drawer:




I spent pretty well the rest of the day doing chores at home. For dinner I scared up some left overs - Giada's shrimp fa diavolo, quinoa tabbouleh and some fruit FTW:




I have to give it to Giada! The sauce for the shrimp site was tasty :o)!

Later on in the evening I partook in a little Miss Universe action. Hahaha! What can I say? I am still Hispanic - this pageant is serious business.

While I watched the competition I did some weight training. As a bonus I busted out my cute new weight lifting gloves courtesy of Nike Town in Portland:



And that was my Sunday bloggies.

So tell me, what do you think of the quality of this iPhone blogging?

Happy Monday peeps! :o)

Looks good to me! I am a complete moron when it comes to electronic gadgets - I still need my daughters help when I add songs to my iPod!

Love the drawer full of fruit! I need some more fruit in my life, especially more variety.

I don't know that the iPhone can compare to a proper camera for picture quality, but the layout seems fine.

And I didn't realize pagents were a big deal for those of hispanic descent. Seems like a whole lot of fake tan, fake eyelashes, and sequins to me. Wait...that almost sounds like a skating competition. HA!

Pretty good pics with the iphone girl!

Of course my fav pics are the farmers market ones. The produce is getting SO good this time of year.

Boo on the brunch fail.

Marlene,

He is feeling better and thankfully I didn't catch his ailment :o)

Biz,

Good to hear the pics are passable. LOL

beneathiall,

I figure the more good stuff I keep around the bigger the chances that I won't snack on tempting goodies!

Marianne,

Hahaha! We Hispanics don't do kiddy pageants but we are pretty hard core about Miss Universe. Mostly cause we tend to do so well! :oP

Erin,

Yaay the pics are good! I also downloaded a photo editing app to make them even better! :o)

Andrea,

I am starting to think it should be called crack phone! LOL I am in love!
