Why I switched back to a Macbook Pro 💻

Good morning you guys! 

Happy Saturday!!! I’m so happy it’s the weekend! Do you guys have any fun weekend plans? I have a couple things to do, but will mostly stay at home because they are saying there is a huge snowstorm coming. In the meantime, I wanted to share why I switched back to a Macbook Pro! 

A couple months ago, I bought a Mac desktop computer and I LOVED it! It’s been something I’ve wanted for years and after I got my full time job, I figured why not just get it? So I did and I gave my old Macbook Pro to my little sister. I had that one since I started college, so it’s been a good 4 years since I bought it. It worked fine and everything, but I just really wanted this Mac computer! I thought it would help a lot with blogging and making videos. Which it did, but it wasn’t for me. 

It’s been about 3 months since I’ve had the Mac and I finally decided that right now, I need a laptop. I can’t take the desktop to the living room and use it, it’s impossible. The only place I could use it in would be in my office and I only go in there if I’m working from home. Which is why a lot of my blog posts were only posted when I worked from home. After work, I was too tired to go into the office and work on my blog which resulted in barely blogging. 

After a couple weeks of thinking about this, I decided to switch back over to a Macbook Pro. The problem was that I couldn’t keep both, so I had to sell my Mac. I ended up giving it to my sister and the next day I went and got myself the newest Macbook. I thought about just getting the basic version, but the price difference wasn’t that much of a big deal, so I was able to get the one with the touch bar. It’s really nice, the keyboard feels awesome, and it’s super fast. I’ve never felt happier to have my Macbook back. Safe to say, I’m in love with my computer once again! 

The Mac was a great computer, worked nicely with editing videos and stuff like that. There was no issues with it besides only being able to stay in one spot. Which I of course knew before I bought it, but I didn’t know how much I’d need the capability of being able to move around and bring it with me wherever I go. Needless to say, I made a mistake when purchasing it and I’m glad I was able to fix it quickly! Now I’m able to bring my computer with me on future vacations and anywhere I want! It feels nice to take it to the living room when I get tired of sitting in my office. I also started taking it to work and in my free time I write when I can so it’s just really a win-win! 

Maybe in the future when I’m able to afford both and I live in my dream city I could purchase a Mac again if I need to, but for now this Macbook has my heart ❤ 

Has anyone else made a mistake like this? Where you quickly realized you shouldn’t have bought something and kind of regret it? At one point, I just kept it to myself because my husband would’ve said, “I told you so!” Which he did… I should’ve taken his advice 🙂

Gloomy days 🌧

Good morning!

Woke up with a huge headache this morning, so I decided to work from home. Got lots of work to do today, but I am trying to balance everything out so I am not super stressed about it. Today is a very gloomy day outside, it looks like it’s going to rain, but I don’t remember it being in the forecast. Yesterday it rained a lot when I was driving home and I had the biggest scare on the highway. There was a huge puddle you couldn’t see going onto the Express Lane ramp and my car just flew into it and I almost lost all control of my car. I thought I was going to end up hitting the median and the side concrete. It was super scary, but if I didn’t know how to control my car it could’ve been way worse.

Onto more exciting things, I officially submitted my PTO for our trip next month and I am SUPER EXCITED!!!! This will 100% be the best trip I’ll have ever gone on so far in my life. So excited to see all of these new cities and so excited to go back and visit Yosemite😍 I told Mirhad that I don’t know how he’s going to drag me home after this trip.. seriously hahahaha. It will be too nice to leave. I can’t wait to start planning it, I’m going to most likely make a blog post all about it! 

I’m in our office right now, I lit a candle and the whole atmosphere changed completely. I drank coffee earlier this morning and I’m waiting for Mirhad to wake up so we can eat breakfast together so I don’t make it and it goes cold for him (happens way too often, this dude never wants to get up) so till then I’ll be starving. I guess by then I can call it lunch, not breakfast lol. I can hear him snoring so loudly from here LOL. 

Today we need to go grocery shopping, I think we are almost out of eggs if not already and we need some other keto foods. We had a “cheat weekend” but we didn’t even cheat lol. So yesterday around lunch time we decided to extend it one more day so last night we ordered some Domino’s pizza and it was yummy! Back to keto today and going to go hard for the rest of this month and possibly into next because I really want to a bit stronger/lighter so it doesn’t slow me down when I hike. Usually when I gain some weight I can barely do a hike and I can’t even enjoy it properly since I get tired so easily. 

Not sure what else we’ll do today, but we’ll see later. Planning on making a post about my weekend!

Btw I usually get my featured images from spark, but sometimes I take them myself. Hoping to get into always posting my own! 

See ya! 🙂

April 29, 2018 – Sunday!

GOOD MORNING!!

Happy happy Sunday! Wish it could be one of those lazy Sundays, but we have lots of work to do!! Yesterday we bought our bed, two desks, and two chairs for our office. We picked up one table and chair yesterday and the rest we have to pick up today. The desk is so hard to put together, so I am not looking forward to the next one lol. Also, we got a king bed and I’m praying it fits into our room hahaha. Should’ve probably measured it before we picked one 😐 

Currently ATM I am drinking coffee and probably going to watch a show until I’m done with my coffee.. might watch This is Us because it has been a while. So this weekend has been busy overall and we have done a lot in the house. Put in our living room furniture, put up our TV, called for internet (YASS), and put in our carpet. This one guy is going to finish our granite countertop in the kitchen in the next 2 weeks and that’s the final step. What’s left is to basically furnish the house and clean up the outside of it like power washing the siding, cleaning the garage out, and planting flowers. Little things like that which we have been wanting to do for a while now, but since it wasn’t nice outside until this month we had to put it off.

I have a test this Wednesday so I need to start studying for it tomorrow or today if possible and then next Thursday (May 10th), I have my last exam for financial management yessss! I’m so happy and excited to almost be done! Then soon after that, life officially starts (outside of school). Can’t believe that soon I will be living in my own home 🙂 🙂 

Countdown Clock:

  • 13 days until graduation
  • 17 days until we’re married
  • 25 days until Colorado trip

Ah, I can’t wait, especially for that trip!!! Of course I’m excited for everything else that comes before that, but I haven’t been on a trip since October and I really love heading out for a little bit and getting a change.

But yeah, that’s about it. I have to go work on the house! See ya!
