Giveaway: iPad Mini

The last iPad giveaway this year! I’ve heard all bout the iPad Mini, but have yet to actually hold one in my hand. I’m the first to complain that my iPhone is too small but my iPad is too big, so bingo! This is the solution. Perhaps I’ll put this on my list for Santa — that is, if I can restrain myself from just buying it for myself right now. I’m an instant grat-brat 🙂

This giveaway is sponsored by me Steamy Kitchen – see all those lovely ads to the right? That’s what pays for the iPads that I give away, so I’m happy to do it. Thank you advertisers!

While I’ve got your attention, let’s talk about apps. My life now revolves around software – which helps me organize, plan and entertain myself.

Here are some that I’ve been enjoying this month: – it’s like Netflix, but for audiobooks. Remember we used to call these “Books on Tape”!!!?? For $30 a month, you have unlimited access to their audiobooks. Instead of listening to music in the car, I listen to books. I’m currently listening to Oogy, the story about the one-eared pit bull puppy who was rescued by a loving family.

Beep Boop – This has been a lifesaver for me as a parent trying to motivate my kids to play nicely, do chores, homework. They get a Beep! if they are good, and a Boop! if not. For our kids, we decided on 25 Beeps for the week = electronic privileges for the weekend. Wanna see how well your kids wash dishes, empty the dishwasher, pick up toys? Get this app. It’s free.

7 Little Words – Are you a word game junkie? This one is a cross between unscrambling and crossword. You’ll get addicted.
