ipad awesomeness

When I married Aaron,
I pretty much married Apple too.
He is pretty much the biggest Apple dork there is.
Over the years my sweet hubby has been trying and trying to convince me how cool Apple is.
First he bought me an ipod.
Then an iphone.
Then a Macbook.
Progressively they have pretty much sealed the deal in turning me into a full on Apple snob.

And then the ipad came out.
My hubby (naturally) wanted one.
He begged and begged me to let him get one.
I said no.
They looked like a total waste of money.
Like a big and glorified iphone (which we already had).

And then a couple weeks ago my husband totally scored and won the new ipad 2 from his work.
I didn't even touch it for a couple days.
I totally wasn't interested.
And then one night I gave it a try
and I totally ate my words.
It is awesome.
As I should of expected it to be.
I don't think Apple makes anything that isn't awesome.

Anyways, if you have an awesome ipad you must check out this adorable ipad case tutorial by Polka Dot Chair.
Not only is it super cute but it is extra padded to keep your little baby safe.

Do any of you have an ipad?
What's your favorite thing about it?

I was also very anti getting one but then hubby's laptop started making horrible noises so I said fine. He said it would be great for work and his school work. Whatevs.

I had no interest but then... I play angry birds. And then I just wanted to look up a quick actor in a movie we were watching. Now we have an ongoing pinball competition going on.

He converted a few Disney movies to iTunes so that Maddie can watch movies on it during a few long trips we have planned in the next few months too. I guess it was worth it!

We just got ours today as well as Appletv. I've barely touched the iPad2 because I can't get it out of my husband's mitts. But I already think it is awesome.
