His and Hers

So if you know my husband, you know that he gets very excited about anything related to technology and loves his toys. Electronics are toys to him. He researches and studies programs, equipment, and well speaks a language that is completely foreign to me (as you can tell by this post). I joke with him that I don't understand the majority of his Facebook posts because they are all about technology. And well when the latest toy is released it is always at the top of his wish list. Recently, I had to get a new phone because mine was having issues. He struggled with the fact that his wife had a better phone than him, in which I did not know how to use to its fullest extent. He is always trying to teach me how to better use my toys but really, it usually goes over my head. This leads me to the latest additions to our household.

My computer has been slowly beginning to not work as it should. It will only connect to the internet for a minute or two at a time. And even my technical genius of a husband can't get it working. After some thought we decided it needed replaced, and instead of a computer I considered getting a tablet. I won't go into details but for what I currently use it for, it was just as practical.

So last Saturday I woke up and asked Matthew what our plan for the day was. He half-jokingly (actually I thought he was half-joking but apparently he wasn't joking at all) said, "Go to get you an ipad." We headed off to Easton, played with the toys a little bit and somehow walked out with two ipads. His and her ipads. Yes, it was a little impulsive. But if you know us at all, that is often how we buy new toys. (I must make this disclaimer: This is not how we make life changing purchases like houses or cars.) And for myself, it made more sense for each of us to get one because if I bought one and he didn't I would never see it anyway, and I would probably hear continuous pouting about how he wants one too, after all he wanted it first.

So here they are, his and her ipads... cute right?
