Why I said NO To A New Ipad Mini

Are you kidding me?  Who says no to a new Ipad mini?
:/ Me, ugh, crazy I know.

For Valentines Day we went to my FAVORITE restaurant ever,
 OMG, it's soooo YUMMY
My absolute, favorite dish, la combinación, pollo y lechón,
the combo plate of chicken and pork,
it comes with white rice, black beans, and sweet onions, in the most savory garlic sauce, mmm delicioso!  (I don't usually mix my languages, but even you'll come out of there reciting any español you know :).

If you can't make the restaurant locations, and you're ever at Universal City Walk, there's a small food to go in the food court, 
seriously, you can thank me later, You MUST GO!

Ah hem, anyways, 
afterwards we went to Santa Monica's Third Street Promenade,
and as we were enjoying
( so good to know calories don't count on Valentines ;)

when my sweet hubby said he was going to get me an Ipad mini for Valentines Day!
I was so excited! Really?! For me?!
But when we got to the Apple Store, my indecisiveness crept in,
It's a lot of money, what if I don't use it much?
I already have an iphone, isn't it pretty much the same thing?
I don't know why, but I wouldn't hesitate to get one for my hubby if he wanted it, but for me....?
Well, let me research it a little more, see if I really do want one, or better yet, use one.

SEE PEOPLE, I seriously need help,
please help me get over my typical mama's -everyone comes first mentality.


  1. Thanks for the restaurant tips. We're down in L.A. every so often and I want to try to Cuban restaurant!
    A couple years ago my husband wanted to get me an ipad for Christmas. I told him that I already had a laptop and didn't know if I'd use the ipad much. And it costs so much, did I really need it? Well, I was wrong! I love it and use it all the time! I don't have an iphone but I used to use my husband's and I like the bigger size better. I'm sure you'll be happy either way.

  2. I was like you, but ultimately I got the iPad! I also have my laptop but its been amazing. I have cut down on my paperwork by 50%. I use it to keep all my anecdotal notes, assessments, and any other notes on each of my students. I no longer have the big ol' binder of assessments to lug around. If you need more info please email me.

  3. Thanks girls for your advice, I definitely needed it! I didn't even think of using it for classroom paperwork. And you must go to Versailles, love it :)

  4. I am just like you: "Let me research it, I don't know if it's money well-spent, I'm not sure I'll use it", etc. etc. I am dying to get an iPad mini, though. I have thought of all the ways it would benefit my teaching and me! I am waiting, though, until the next one comes out (it's gotta be any day now, right? I mean, it's apple!) because the current mini doesn't have the same screen as the current regular iPad. The next version will surely have the better screen and it will probably be even cheaper than the one out now. Right? I'm no help, I know, but I just wanted to put my own thoughts about it out there since it's on my mind, too!

    I am happy to have found your blog. I teach in a language immersion program, but I teach in English while my partner teaches in Spanish. It will be fun to learn what you do with your kids, even though our models are different!

    Primarily Primary,

  5. Ayyy Angela, Angela, Angela... I didn't even think about a new Ipad mini coming out soon.
