A happy Monday and early birthday gifts

Happy Monday all! So did everyone have a nice weekend? Ours was pretty nice.We never made it to the shore due to crappy weather but the oldest daughter came home for the summer and we, well the hubby, laid tile down in the laundry room floor. All is right in my world today.
I spent most of the weekend putting away the college girl's stuff and puttering around the house... and when I say puttering what I really mean is clean a little, cook a little but mostly I was on my new iPad 2!
This was an early birthday gift, very early in fact since my birthday isnt until the end of June. I got this wonderful thoughtful gift back in March. I'm really not much into laptops, or pretty much anything that is electronic but this I wanted bad. I have been wanting for well over a year. Don't believe me - look here. See.. well over a year!
I'm not ashamed to say that I acted like a complete child until I got this gift. I whined, complained and I am pretty sure at one point I even held my breath.  Was I a tad bit annoying? Um yeah, whateverrrr- I got it and I am in love with it. Seriously. Love. 
I am still getting around to adding apps but the ones that I have found are so well.. cool.  The magazines and catalogs are amazing on this thing. And they link directly to the merchandise. How cool is that?? The hubby loaded a few apps for me and one of my favorites is called Flipboard. Flipboard is really awesome because you can add different blogs (or feeds), websites etc. and you read them, well a book. You can also add all your social medias (twitter, Facebook etc) and it's puts them in a magazine format. I have a few of my fave blogs on there like Apartment Therapy, Pioneer Woman  and also my blog! 
Here is a shot of what Orange it Lovely looks like on Flipboard.

How flippin cool is that? (pun intended)
Do you have an iPad 1 or 2? Any cool apps you want to share with me (please)?? Oh and do you blog from your iPad? Haven't quite figure that one out yet.
