- When I received that special birthmas* check from my brother (thanks, Tom M.) I immediately knew what I wanted to purchase: an iPad. I love my Mac desktop (the 3rd in a series of Mac desktops) but wanted something with which to surf the internet, blog and socially network and the iPad has been the perfect device. I still haven't mastered Angry Birds, but I love the portability and am constantly finding new ways to use it - sitting on my couch, at the dining room table, on the train, when traveling, when I'm getting gussied up in my bathroom...
*a holiday between my birthday and Christmas I like to celebrate.

- I've got a little Kate Spade addiction thing with which you may or may not be familiar. It all started about 3 years ago when I fell in love with a gorgeous green handbag when I was in the city one Memorial Day weekend. I didn't dare go into the store, but I went online after I returned to Albany (too bad I didn't have an iPad then, huh?!) and saw the price of the bag, which was more than a car payment but less than a mortgage check, and did my best to forget about it. Until some unexpected money came our way, that is... The thrill of getting that beautiful bag, which came with its very own cotton bag for protection, set an evil precedent and I am determined to one day have an entire rainbow of Kate Spade bags. I won't admit how many colors have found their way into my special handbag closet, but, I can tell you I am very happy with my latest addition - thank you, Tom L. ! She's purple (well actually, eggplant), and if you see me anytime soon she'll be hanging from my shoulder.
Now, who says love is only supposed to be celebrated on February 14th? Cheesecake, techie toys and handbags can be enjoyed every day, all year long.
