Ode to my 5lb cell phone

She was a good phone.

 
Born into my life September, 2003.. exited my life July, 2006

Even though she made my purse weigh 5 lbs more, my back was stronger because of her...

She was good to me for 3 years... through thick and thin...I shared many laughs and many tears through her...

She never left me stranded with empty batteries...

She could be dropped from 5 feet in the air and it wouldn't even harm her chubby little silver body...

She had a beautiful Canon in D ringtone that told me that Darin was calling... reminded me of our wedding...

She stored all of my 130 phone numbers with ease...

She was worth every penny! Wait.. she was free. =/ Okay, NIX that one...


Yes.. she was a good phone...

She was laid to rest on Friday night...

I just hope that she knew how much I loved her. And that replacing her was a must.. um, because people were starting to stare at me while using my phone!! Wondering if I got my phone in the 90's.

And.. this is my new girl!!
 
Nope, didn't get the pink razor.. it was $50 more so it got the veto.. although Darin offered to get me a pink sharpie and color this one for me. I didn't even know they had pink sharpies!! Way cool. =)

I love the pictures of you retiring that old phone. I hope someone saw you doing that. they must have thought, "what the heck is that chick doing." and then you ran into a door or something, and they forgot all about it.
You make me laugh.
by the way 3 weeks til I go back to school
YES!

And soooo cool that you got to hang out with Jill and Maria, such great pictures!
How cute that they both wore all pink, and I love that Maria dumped out her purse, Alexa does that all the time, it must be a "girl" thing! =)
And CONGRATS on being an aunt again, the pic of Jett is ADORABLE!!

May she rest in peace. Tim has a razor and they don't do well with being dropped five feet so I think you're better off!
