I Need Your Help

I don't really have much to chat about today; you know, as if I've had really interesting things to chat about every other day this week.What can I say? It's January and not much is going on.

Tonight (Thursday) I'm hosting my Sunday school class for our weekly Bible study and I'm both looking forward to it and dreading it. I have no idea how 20 or so people are going to fit in my house and I'm paranoid that I haven't cooked enough food. We're having taco soup and it I have made a really large batch; but, you just never know sometimes. Justin is leading the discussion tonight and coming early to help me get set up for which I am exceptionally grateful. Especially considering I was up late last night and earlier than normal this morning getting things done and am at this moment pooped, and it doesn't even start for four more hours! with any luck, it will all be fine and I'll survive to tell you all about it.

On a completely random note, I want to mention new cell phones - when you get a new cell phone, do you have the contacts from your old phone imported into your new one? You see, I do. It makes complete sense to me. I might order my new phone online but when it arrives, I take it down to Sprint and it takes them all of one minute or less to import my contacts from my old phone into my new one. Most people I know, however, do not seem to practice this method and then when I text them I get the reply, "Who is this?" and then when I tell them, "Oh, I got a new phone and don't have my contacts in it, I'll store your number." This baffles me every time because to me, it's worth it to drive down to Sprint and let them take care of the contact situation for me so I don't have to deal with it. So, I'm curious, do other providers not provide this service or are people just too lazy to take their phone to the whatever store and have Mr. Cell Service import their contacts. What do you do?

Today on Twiiter, one of the girls I follow tweeted a picture of the results of a new toy that her daughter received for her recently 6th birthday, although the girl I follow was the one playing with the toy. I took one look and immediately added it to my birthday list and promptly let my mom know I wanted one. I had one when I was a kid and loved it and am pretty sure I will love it again. It's the Spirograph. Does anyone remember it? They are selling it on Amazon and when I first looked there were nine  left and now there is only one. Oh, I sure hope my mom was one of the eight people who bought one today!

So, my blogiversary is coming up and I usually give away a cookbook or some other kind of book. I've got one in mind for this year but wanted to see if you all had any suggestions for what you might want to win. If you do, shout it out in the comments along with what you do about your cell phone contacts when you get a new phone. Inquiring minds want to know.

I LOVED my spirograph too! Now there's a blast from the past.

I would like a LeCreuset as a giveaway - lol....

How about a Publix gift card?

I used to get my contacts moved from one phone to another. But now, since I have an android, I just synch everything up through my Google contacts. So, once I first signed into my account on the phone all of the contacts were there.
Yay...blogoversary coming up. :) Any prize is awesome...hello?!?! :)
