iPad 2

Posted on April 11, 2011


Holy cow.  We are exhausted.  Is it Friday yet? 😉

The combination of 90+ degree temps and a weekend chock-full of checking items off of our to-do list totally whipped us.  It’s almost a relief that today is Monday.  Almost.

We did make time for a quick iPad 2 photo shoot yesterday.  If you follow us on Twitter, you may have read that we finally got our hands on one a few weeks ago after three failed attempts.  We know, kinda pathetic.  We obviously really wanted one.

Not surprisingly, it didn’t take long for WordPress to unveil the Onswipe theme, unique for iPad users.  If WordPress is your blogging platform, you have the option to display the special (Onswipe) theme for iPad users.  Click “iPad” under the Appearance section on your Dashboard to enable and edit the settings.  There are several options, such as:

  • Cover Display – we chose to display an image from a recent post
  • Cover Logo – we chose a recent favorite photo (seen in the upper right hand corner)
  • Launch Screen Image
  • Display Font
  • Skin Color – we chose green

If you are a WordPress blogger, we highly recommend you check out this setting in your Dashboard.  We read many of your blogs from our iPad 2 and the Onswipe theme is a great, intuitive way to reach your readers!

This post also gives us an excuse to show off our new handy-dandy DIY iPad sleeve. 

Miraculously, it fits perfectly.  I even used the leftover fabric and buttons from the DIY camera strap cover to make a pocket for our stylus.  Gus thinks I should start a new career sewing iPad sleeves and camera straps.  Sounds like a plan to me. 🙂

And just for good measure, we’re posting a few photos of Gus sunning himself. 

Ahhhhh!!!  We’re down to only eight weekends left in San Antonio!

P.S.  We packed up a ton of boxes this past weekend.  As pathetic as it sounds, it pained me to pack up my handbags.  M finally had to demand kindly request that I pack all but two.  Only two!  The horror!
