Things I am Digging

I have to carry a work phone now as well. I have had it for well over a month. I don't know the phone number, don't know how to work the darn thing, and still need to update my work signature with the number so that work people stop calling my personal number. BUT, the fun thing is, I get to learn how a BlackBerry works, and I get to buy new accessories! Like this one. . .
This is somewhere that I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to visit. I cannot wait to see what Rachel Ashwell decides to do with this place. . .  One the website it says that The Ranch by Rachel Ashwell is undergoing renovations. How fun. I cannot wait to see what she decides to do with it. 

I am looking for a new Winter coat. I bought a black one last year. BIG mistake. Being blond. It shows everything. I think I need a camel and I think these mittens would be PERFECT. Love them!

This is a lot like Fitbot that I had referenced earlier in a Digging post, but here is an alternative. Phillips Direct tracks your daily activity and provides a personal fitness coach. This has a buy one, get one 1/2 off deal going on as well. I think this might be a great thing for the boy and I to look into.
How great are these Kangaroo Water bottles? They have a compartment in the bottom where you can put your keys, chap stick, id, whatever it might be. LOVE this idea!
This is something I have read about, but I don't know anyone who has one, but I am really curious about them. If you know anyone who has tried this, I would be really curious. But I am thinking it would really help me to ensure that I am getting the pictures off of my camera. The eye-fi cards come in two sizes 4GIG and 8GIG and allow you to upload pictures via hot spots. What do you think?
I was looking at getting a new external hard drive, and one of my goals for this year is to be better organized. I think that this would help, an external HD that you can access from anywhere. And it would also give me the ability to be more productive if I am not at home or in the office. I had read about Pogoplug a while back, but now this is on my must list. I am thinking the Pogoplugpro, what do you think?
I think one of these would be a ton of fun! It reminds me of the old Polaroid cameras, but this is a Fujifilm Instax mini film camera. How much fun would one of these be at a party? We had to scrap our housewarming party due to my uncle passing away, and no annual holiday party due to work constraints, so I am thinking a Mardi Gras or Chinese New Year Party and I think this would be a great party favor!
We will frequently bring a bottle of wine with us to friends homes as a hostess gift. I saw these personalized photo gift tags from the cardstore a while back and thought that they would be perfect to add to a bottle of wine. How cute, now I just need to find a good picture to use!

My mom got my daughter a GORGEOUS winter coat from Nordstrom Jrs dept and it fits me!!! I'm 5'8" and size 8/10 so I'm definitely no junior - price was fairly reasonable too. I borrow it a lot :) Love your list too!

That hard drive looks like just what I need. I will use that as a reward for getting our office in order. I have been curious about the memory cards, let me know how it works.
