The One Where I Win an iPad


I am not one of those people who never wins anything. 
In fact, I am quite the opposite. 
I win things from contests I didn't even know I entered. 

How's that for luck?

In this case it was an ipad 2. 
An ipad. 2.

I wish I could tell you it was some exciting story like how I stuffed this into my jacket at Walmart while no one was looking, but in fact all I did was watch a work-related webinar on online shopping cart abandonment.

And anyway, iPad boxes can't fit into my jacket. 
Don't ask how I know that.

So I watched the webinar, and then a few days later, a person from the company called and told me that my email address had been selected for the ipad drawing.
I was like, "What ipad drawing?" 
And they were like, "The drawing for the ipad that we had when you watched the webinar."
And I said, "There was a drawing for an ipad?"
Then they took back the offer because they thought I was stupid.


So now I have this fancy thing I don't entirely know what to do with. And poor Jordan is as jealous as jealous can be because let's just say he has an Android tablet. And let's also say that if my ipad and his tablet were in the Hunger Games, my ipad would be Katniss, and his tablet would be that kid who dies in the first scene that you don't even remember. 

But don't feel too bad. He's actually already used my ipad more than I have. Because I don't know what to do with it am learning how to share. 

Do you have an iPad? What do you use it for? Do you have any suggestions for good aps?

Seriously. My cell phone has actual buttons and no data plan. I clearly need help with technology.

I just got an ipad as well! Long story, but my husband bought it for me. I am a little overwhelmed. I don't know what to do with it either. I'm actually a bit intimidated by it so I've had it for about a week but barely touched it. (We've also been pretty busy) Anyhow, I will be checking back for good ap ideas as well. Keep me updated please! And I'll let you know if I find anything good :)

I have an iPad and I use Instagram, Facebook and of course word with friends. Pinterest is my fav for recipes and cooking

You better name that thing Katniss, because that's hilarious. We have a first gen ipad, and I say "we" when in fact it is now enrobed in a kid-proof case, and our children play with it. I keep educational games and Netflix on there for them, and they love it.

Before I got an iphone, I liked using it to pull up recipes in the kitchen. Saddleback Leather makes an awesome case for them, but they are expensive. And manly. Might not help with the whole jealousy issue...

You should get Instagram and Words With Friends. So you can keep in contact with me at all times.

Ahhhhh!!! That is seriously so awesome! I won a pair of shoes from a blog once, and they were awesome, but not as awesome as an iPad. I don't have an iPad and to be honest, if I did I wouldn't know what to do with either. Well, except get a really cool case so everyone knew that I had an iPad :)
