flashback friday

The other day, I was thinking about what my first piece of technology was and I realized it all started with E.T. I was obsessed with the movie as a two and three year old, weird I know. I was fascinated by the Speak & Spell E.T. used to "phone home," asking for my own. I was pretty disappointed when I ended up with a Speak & Read, which my parents claimed would teach me more.

What was your first technology love?


...and some finds I fancy from blogland:
  • ((date night)) Check out Cheap Date Friday from Married Living on a Single's Budget for some date night inspiration.
  • ((organization tips)) I've been struggling with motivation when it comes to tasks around the house and this Monday Motivation on Weekly Management from Morgan at The Tiny Twig was a helpful perspective...one I needed to hear.
  • ((hairstyles)) I also need some inspiration when it comes to trying new things with my long hair (I'm a total slacker when it comes to stepping out of my comfort zone with hairstyles + makeup), thanks to Ashley of The Shine Project for posting her cute vlog of the braided top knot. I'm also hoping get brave enough to a few of these hairstyles suggested by The Small Things blog.
  • ((social media)) Thinking about ways to grow your blog? Ashley had a great post earlier this week where she shared some excellent tips for How to Grow Your Blog for Free.
  • ((baby dancing)) Who doesn't want to start their day with a video of super cute baby? And dancing to LMFAO? Bravo, E Tells Tales!

  4. I too had a speak and spell, but I am pretty sure the first piece of technology I loved was my first tape recorder. My sisters and I used that for hours on end.

  5. Oh my goodness, my husband and girls were talking about this wonderful toy a few weeks ago. I bought it for my oldest daughter who is almost 31 now. Both of them played with it for hours. Actually hubby and I used to "borrow" it and play games on it! We've always loved computers and had a Radio Shack TRS80. Thanks for the memories again.

  7. I can just hear that robot voice now saying the letters as I push them. I swear that the Speak and Spell really did teach me how to spell. I loved that thing!
