Bloggin with style!

After mourning the loss of my PC Stanley, I've decided it was time to take the plunge and move forward.

Guess what I got? Hint: It's a tool I've always dreamed of. Have you guessed correctly? No?....Okay, I'll just tell you. I got a new laptop! But not just ANY laptop. It's a laptop I've only owned in my happiest of dreams. It's a......drum roll please:

My dear dad was finally the one who convinced me to take the plunge. (After my stepmother, her best friend and my brother's attempts were not breaking me) Besides, I was in Best Buy staring at this master of creation. I couldn't say no. (I'll admit it, being on an interest free payment plan also helped in my decision.) After about 20 minutes of buyer's remorse (which consists of my usual worry wart ridiculousness and panic) I came around to being the giddiest woman on the planet. The second that baby booted up the nerd in me was ecstatic. 7 hours of battery life! Awesome programs! No viruses! High speed! The keys glow in the dark! It's glorious.

Stanley who? I can't recall. Say hello to, well...Mac. I know. How original. "Oh Katie," you must be saying, "Tell us how you really feel." No problem. Since I can't put my true feelings into written word at the moment (a rarity), here is my face:

I can't wait to catch up on all of your blogs again and get back to writing. It truly makes my day complete.


  1. Love it! I didn't even know 7 hours of battery life was a such thing.

  2. Thanks Hayley! Me neither until my stepmom's best friend told me all about the Mac she just got. My jaw hit the floor with that one. I normally don't need things that are too flashy, (not living wise anyway) but I'll admit I'm a tech geek. ;)

  3. Oooh, gottta love the Macs. My boyfriend just got one, and I've..."borrowed" it for the past two days straight.

  4. Rebecca, when my stepmom's friend gave me her mac to try, I "borrowed" that thing until she had to leave. Hah.

  5. Hey Katie! i LOVE my mac!!! I've been a mac believer for over 6 years, and once you Mac, you'll NEVER go back! I'm excited to read up on your Hawaiian adventures, went a couple years ago, and absolutely fell in love!!!

    I'm new to SITS Girls, so I'm trying to get the hang of it! I'm not a creepy person.. promise? :-)

  6. Hi Ashley!

    I'm indeed loving my Mac! And it's true, once you go Mac, you never go back. I had to go on my parents PC to get a file, and I immedately could tell the difference.

    Off to visit your blog now! :) Welcome to SITS!
