Weekly Roundup – Playoff Edition

Well my Steelers left the playoffs in a blaze of glory, if you can’t tell that was sarcasm!  Gotta root for the Packers now but it is just not the same when your favorite team is not playing!  This week was especially sweet as my new iPAd 2 arrived that I won in Sustainable Personal Finance’s 1 Year Anniversary Giveaway.  The iPad 2 was sponsored by SPF and Miss T. from Prairie Eco-Thrifter, and logistics was provided by Jeff with Sustainable Life Blog.

    I would love an iPad. I’m holding out for the iPad 3 later this year though.

    I’m jealous! At this point in time, I’d even settle for an iPod touch!!!

    Thanks for including both my son’s site and mine. He appreciated the awesome support 🙂

    Glad you are enjoying your new toy. I want an ipad as well. It would be so handy. Let me know how long it takes you to get addicted. lol

      Already am MT! I thought the touch keyboard would be awkward but it is really easy to use. Thanks again for my new toy!

    Sorry about the Steelers, and now the Packers!

    I’m hoping for Patriots vs. 49ers (so I can annoy my Bay Area friends with a Pats victory) or a rematch of Giants vs. Pats (and Brady can get that 2006 demon off his back).

    So basically, I hope the Ravens lose, haha.

      I think it just might be the Pats and Giants PK so you may have your rematch! I’m hoping the Ravens lose too!
