I love my freedom. I love my America.

S'mores anyone?

We did it....we got my daughter a cell phone. We were trying to wait for at least another year, but, well....we just did it.

It was time for an upgrade and contract renewal for my husband and I so the timing seemed to be just right to add another line. It's just $9.99/month, right? Huh, not so much. By the time you add this and choose this phone instead of that one, it's a little more than $10/month.

I will have to admit, the comfort zone of being able to reach my daughter at pretty much all times is welcoming. She is LOVING every minute of having a phone and is a speed demon already at entering information and sending text messages.

The one thing we didn't do yet was get insurance on her phone. Considering the fact she dropped it before we even left the store tells me it's something I need to act on and soon. HA....it's ONLY $6.99/month.

Hopefully we're set for another 2 years on cell phones.

Lucas Oil Stadium

Lucas Oil Stadium is home of the Indianapolis Colts. I had the opportunity to take a tour of the stadium while I was in Indy on a business trip yesterday. This post is going to mostly be pictures, but I wanted to post a few quick facts about the stadium. I found it so fascinating (and I'm not even a football lover).

* The stadium celebrated its grand opening on August 24, 2008
* Covers 1.8 million square feet
* Seven-levels with a retractable roof and seating of 63,000
* 148 concession stands
* Employs approx 10,000 people on a game day
* Lucas Oil Stadium is where the super bowl will be played in 2012
