An iPad For Me...

 The iPad box...
 Almost out...
Yea... my new toy!
Valentines Day this year was just like any other day.  Josh had taken Kendra to Salt Lake for the day shopping... so I came home and grabbed some dinner and headed to the studio to catch up on my blogs and Facebook.  One of my friends had posted that KUTV was going to be giving away an iPad on the 10 o'clock news... so I thought... what the heck... so I signed up.  About 10:10 I headed upstairs to catch up on some recorded TV shows when my cell phone rang.  It was a good friend calling to wish me Happy Valentines Day!  We were talking when my home phone rang... I told him I would have to call him back... my Aunt Peggy was calling and there must be something wrong.  I answered the phone and my aunt said... "did you register to win an iPad on Channel 2."  I said yes and she said... you just won... they just announced your name on the TV.  Vicki from Logan.  Wow... that's all I could say.  I couldn't believe it!  I had my iTouch sitting on the end table so I checked my e-mail... I was getting all kinds of posts to my Facebook wall. It was true... it was ME! Josh got home about 15 minutes later... (I'm still in shock mind you)... he walked in the door and said he had a surprise for me... I told him I had a surprise for him too.  He came into the living room and I showed him my Facebook page... his comment was "Shut Up... no way... you won?".  Immediately he called Kendra and I called my mom and dad.  The next day KUTV called and asked when I could pick it up.  I told them I wouldn't be able to get to Salt Lake for 3 weeks (still crazy busy at work and I can't take any time off now).  She called me back a little while later and said they were going to UPS it to me.  It was so nice of them to go that extra mile for me.  Josh was home when the delivery came.  He opened up the shipping box ... but was sweet enough to wait for me to get home so we could open it together. The next day Josh had all of my music and games downloaded ... I even have a NASCAR app.  What a fun "toy"... I love it!
