About Me

Hi! My name is Melissa and I'm the iCoffeechick.
It took me the longest time to come up with my blog name.  I knew what I wanted it to be about but finding a name for it was taxing on my brain! All who know me know that I enjoy coffee.  Some might even call it an addiction of sorts.  I just like to consider it brain power.  I also thoroughly enjoy handheld electronics, such as smartphones, iPods, iPads, etc.  What I like most are the apps that are available for each of these things. When I find a new app to try, I'm pretty sure that my heart skips a beat.  There are soooo many useful apps out there and I want to try them all!...well, almost all of them.  My dilemma is that I only have an android phone and an ancient iPod.  No, iPod Touch.  No iPad.  No Samsung Galaxy Tab.  Just my Android phone.   However, I still like knowing about what apps are available for each of these devices and if its's something I can use on my phone or laptop, then I'll try it out.  If I like it, I keep it.  If I don't, I just uninstall it and move on.  Because I am still able to be a stay-at-home mom, I have lots of time to play with research apps and programs ;-)

10 fun facts about me:
1. I've been  married to Mike, the amazing man of my dreams, for 25 years this year.  Where did the time go?!
2. I have 2 teenage daughters- Shelby is 18 and Alix is 16
3. I love NYC
4. My favorite color is green
5. I was one of thousands chosen to test pilot a notebook/laptop for Google
6. I'd watch football on TV all of the time if it was on.  I am a Cowboys fan...at least for now
7. I was a cheerleader in  high school and cheered for the boy who is now my husband :)
8.  I rooted my own Android phone and installed several custom ROMs
9. I'd eat cheeseburgers, tacos or spaghetti all of the time
10.Using a new iPad2 while drinking coffee in NYC with my husband and girls would be my a dream come true :D

My goal for this blog is mostly for me to share all of my little quirks about apps and coffee but I also want to inspire you to step out of your comfort zone and try some new things out for yourself!  Your life could be much more productive and organized and actually fun to do if you just take the time to put an app on your phone or other electronic device of choice, so give it a try!!
I'll go start another pot of coffee, so come and join me!
