The new Kindle is being released today. I have the 'I Wants'. I feel really silly because I just got an ipad, reasoning with my hubby that there is a free Kindle app for the iPad, saving me the expense of buying one.

Now I'm not so sure that I want to use the iPad for books. The Kindle is so small and lightweight. One of my co-workers has the Kindle and LOVES it. Sigh.

The introductory price is only $114.

I have gift cards from SWAGBUCKS to almost pay for one. What to do?? (sign up for swagbucks here on my blog to start earning points when you surf the web. You don't have to download a toolbar, I simply go to and search from there. I am amazed at how fast they add up!!!!

Walmart to bring back fabrics

that's right, you heard it here almost FIRST.

My mom will be so delighted. Hosier Homemade, one of the blogs i follow...........I follow about 35 or more in my feed..............has his article, read it to find out what's going on. YAY........they are bringing back quite a few items. I wonder if any of them will be the ones I used to use. But honestly I have gotten out of the habit of stopping there. I do a lot of my shopping on my lunch break, I have 6 grocery stores very close to my work, 3 on the same streeet, very close to each other. Makes it nice to just go store to store and get the sales and forget about Wal-Mart and their 'price match' nightmare. Store #1965 always gives you a hassle when trying to price match. UGH!

Steve and I used our Groupon at the 801 Chophouse on Saturday. The Loosen Brothers Dr. L Riesling was really good. He's got me on a quest to find a local place to purchase. was good!!!!

EDIT:: Found it at Hy-Vee and Winestyles!!

Dinner was good, I had the ribeye, which is my usual, Steve had the Prime Rib. Everything is Alacarte. We tried the creamed corn, asparagus, the potato and the garbage salad. We'll go back there for sure!!!

iPad...............Happy EARLY Birthday to me

Will be headed off one day (sooner than we think) to my granddaughter's dance recital. I've been thinking an iPad with 3g would help the trip go better. My hubby decided it was a good idea. On the way to dinner the other night we stopped at Best Buy, the first generation iPad's are now $270 cheaper than the new iPad2. It took us 10 minutes to get in, make our purchase and get out of the store.

I don't have a name for her yet, but will be thinking of one.
