5,000 views & the iPhone 5

A few days ago, we broke 5,000 views! I have nothing to compare this to, but it makes me feel excited and happy that people are actually reading this little old blog of mine.

Without further ado... I present to you - the iPhone 5 {right}

Out with the old, in with the new
I shared previously that we ordered it online at midnight on Thursday 9/13. We ended up ordering from Apple since AT&T didn't have their act together and the site was down for hours.  I thought it would be easier to order through AT&T but it turns out that they share your upgrade info with Apple and its all connected. So it was pretty seamless to upgrade through Apple. All in all, it took about an hour to finally get through to the website and place both of our orders.

The countdown message the AT&T website displayed until midnight.
I was tracking the phones since the pre-order date amid rumors that Apple has been pushing back shipping dates like crazy. But, we made the first cut and I saw a delivery date of 9/21 when I logged into my Apple account. We did it! I heard that Apple sold 2 million phones in 24 hours. That is just outright crazy.

On Friday, Jake sent me a text message that the phones had been delivered around noon and I wanted to go home so bad but I didn't drive that day, so alas.. I had to wait. I didn't know that he went home first before picking me up but he did and I asked him to bring my box when he picked me up. By the time we got home and out of the car I almost had my service transferred.  It was that fast! Goodbye Blackberry, hello iPhone!

Drumroll please...
So, what's the verdict? I can't believe I waited 5 years {6 years?} to get mine! I love everything about my phone. It's so streamlined, thin and has all the apps I ever wanted. I love you Apple and iPhone!

I have been going crazy downloading apps and using iMessage - I can text other peeps with iPhones for free? Whaaaat? I love it.
