The girls and I accompanied TubaDad to the outlets so he could buy a few work shirts and still get in some quality girl time. And while we were there, Ro and Ree found some cheery accessories they liked as well. So here's the Fashion Friday picture in the outfits they picked out with their fancy new crown headbands and jewelry.
Ree is in the purple, and Ro is in the green, and she's wearing some of her bracelets up around her t-shirt cuffs. I'd have to go back to my archives to check, but I think they've switched who is the bolder fashion one. Wasn't Ree the one who used to put together the crazy outfits while Ro was a little more tame and matchy? Well Ro seems to be the wild one lately (fashion wise).
The important question that has absolutely nothing to do with fashion:
TubaDad had to go to Fry's Electronics to get me a new keyboard tray (Ro broke the old one clean off)(yes the girls are slowly destroying our house day by day). Anyhow, while he was there this Vonage phone thing caught his eye.
He says it's basically a phone system that uses the internet instead of your phone lines. Start-up is free since you can get a rebate for the purchase cost, and then there's a monthly fee of $24.99 which includes unlimited calling (local, long-distance, or international). We've been paying about a hundred dollars a month for phone service, a whole bunch of that for basic service stuff and essentially-local-but-still-billed-at-long-distance calls (which really chaps my hide).
So: Has anyone used Vonage or do you know anyone who has used it? Happy? Unhappy? Any feedback or gotchas? TubaDad was trying to research it, and I said "Well shoot, I'll just ask on the blog. You know we'll get some great comments about it!" Speaking of which, one of my favorite ones lately was Twinkletoes' comment on the New Year's Eve party post where she said "...sometimes the mess is worth the memory!" Amen.
