My HTC 8X phone has made my life so much easier!  I don’t know how I’ve gotten along without it for so long.

For instance, just today my daughter Michaela & I were out trying to find a costume for an oral book report she’s doing.  She has to dress up like the character in the book she read.  She chose Laura Ingalls Wilder.  So, off to the thrift store we went in search of a dress similar to what Laura would have worn.  Once we got there though, we couldn’t really remember what dresses looked like back then.  If we would have seen an exact replica, it would have been easy.  However, we were trying to match up various pieces and it just wasn’t working.  So… I grabbed my phone & did a quick search online for dresses similar to what Laura Ingalls Wilder would have worn.  Voila! 

Here are a few we saw.


  We had lots of ideas right at our fingertips!  We were able to find a jumper style dress at one store.

After purchasing the dress, we took a picture of it using my phone and went in search of a shirt and shoes that would coordinate. 

Bought dress

It was super easy to check the picture of the dress on my phone and we were in and out in no time!  There’s no way I could have done that in the past.

Finally, Michaela had an eye exam and they discovered she needs glasses.  She was excited – even though she only has to wear them to see the board at school or to watch TV.  We took a picture of her in the new frames using my phone and sent the pics to Daddy at work. 


She was so proud to be able to share those photos with him and get his feedback right away.

These are examples from just today where I was able to use my phone in a fantastic way.  So convenient!  My favorite & most used features are getting online & using the camera.
