Random Tuesday Thoughts - iPad Win

It's another weekly edition of Random Tuesday Thoughts.  If you'd like to play along, link up at Stacy Uncorked.

I received the Apple iPad Mini that I won from a Twitter contest a couple months ago.  I've never owned gadgets this advanced so it's taking me some time to get used to all its functions.  I'm already totally addicted to one game, Gardens.  As you can tell from the picture, my smudgy fingerprints are all over it.  Any fun free apps you recommend? 

Since we've started fitness classes, Jason has lost nine pounds.  Me, I'm still at a total of zero pounds lost.  I did get giddy one time when the scale said I lost a pound and a half, but Aunt Flo's monthly visit put a quick end to that. 

I purchased a manual stair stepper from someone on a Facebook group.  It's supposed to work your legs like you're going up and down the stairs.  I can definitely feel the burn when I use it.
Logan's last home basketball game was Thursday night.  He only has a couple more "away" games before season is over.  I went to his game Thursday for Parent Recognition Night.  All the eighth grade players' names were announced and their parents were recognized.  Afterwards we had cake and punch at a local church. 

I think I've said it before, but I'm not a sports kind of gal.  Watching sports on TV is as fascinating to me as watching paint dry.  However, there's something about watching your own kid play that gets you into the game.  Logan has a God-given talent when it comes to sports.  And by God-given, I mean it.  He didn't inherit any athletic traits from his momma or his daddy.

Logan is the kid on the far right, in white.

At the cake and punch reception
I swear it's got to be in the rule book that all players keep their faces set stoically.  None of them ever smile in pictures.

Saturday afternoon I took Adam to watch MAMA in theaters.  It's supposed to be a horror movie.  After watching, the only thing I was horrified about was that it actually made it to the big screen.  I've seen worse but I definitely wouldn't have watched it in theaters if I would've known how sub par it was.
Happy RTT!

LOL - I am gonna sit Mama out. I don't like "horror" movies at all, so I'm just gonna skip it.

I want an Ipad mini, too!

Way to go on your iPad win, that is awesome! The weight will come off, don't get discouraged:) Like you, sports are so boring, but I love watching my son play! I'll be sure to tell hubby not to get Mama when it is out.

Enjoy your iPad Mini! Princess Nagger wants one, but I told her she's going to have to save up and buy it herself... ;) Check out Where's My Water? and Where's My Perry? and any of the Angry Birds apps - you'll find them quite addicting. :)

I used to have a manual stair stepper - I'd love to get a treadmill but need to wait until after we move since I really don't want to move more stuff cross country this summer. ;)

You must be a proud mama with Logan's God given talent! :)

I'm with Masshole Mommy - I'll sit Mama out, too...I'm not a horror movie fan either. :)

I won an iPad about two years ago and I still don't have any apps on it. I pretty much use it for netflix (okay, so one app) and the internet when I'm too lazy to get my laptop out. I still love it though, congrats on your win!

Wow girlie look at you go, that is one heck of a win!!

You'll start to go it sometimes just takes a bit.

What an awesome idea to recognize the parents too.

MAMA looked crazy weird to me. Congrats on the win!
