Why I switched back to a Macbook Pro πŸ’»

Good morning you guys!Β 

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!Β 

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.Β 

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.Β 

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!Β 

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!Β 

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 πŸ™‚

Busy week – recap! βœ¨

Hello hello hello!

First of all, Happy Friday!!! We made it through the week!

It’s been a long time since I have been able to sit down and blog. Honestly, I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve even been able to sit down and BREATHE! It’s been such a busy week, I had a two-day training at work Tuesday and Wednesday and yesterday I had a presentation I had to do which was sooooo stressful for me. So I’ve been at work past 5 everyday and it’s been so tiring. I finally get to work from home today and next week will be much more calm where I can go back to my regular hours.

To be honest, I feel so drained that I don’t even know what to do with my life right now. The only thing I’ve been consistently doing is working out and eating right which is a huge plus and is most likely the reason I was able to get through this week!

I want to talk about how working out has affected my mood! I feel much more energized and my sleep is a lot better. I have been taking melatonin at night this week to make sure I am able to fall asleep because I had to get up so early for work, but working out has also tired me out which is a good thing! Working out has also let me clear my mind of my stresses. It felt so good to exerciseΒ  after my training days this week because I was stuck in a room all day from 8-5pm and it was mentally draining. As soon as I got to the gym, it’s like everything was out of my head and I felt more relaxed and clear-minded. The weather is still crap here, but I still have the motivation to walk out to my garage and workout even if it’s super cold during the walk! So I have to say exercising and being consistent with it is one of the best choices I’ve made this month!

Let’s get into the topic of public speaking. I absolutely HATE it!! It makes me so stressed out and I’m literally a mess until it’s over with. I’ve hated it ever since college and it’s never gotten easier for me. In yesterday’s presentation, I didn’t even have to stand up, but I was shaking so bad and probably stuttering. I just hate being the center of attention and I hope I don’t have to do another presentation for a really, really long time. Does anyone have any good tips on getting past this? It seems like whatever I do, I’m still as nervous as always.

I’m getting back into blogging after this busy week, so today I’m sitting down and writing a list of the future topics I’ll be talking about. I would love to hear what everyone’s favorite thing I blog about is! I know I’m all over the place, it’s hard for me to choose just one group of topics. I love talking about everything! Let me know in the comments πŸ™‚

This weekend I am taking a lot of time to RELAX after this long, stressful week! I think I’ll do a bath bomb and a face mask with my husband. That always helps me relax and clear my mind. Tonight, my bff’s and I are having a girls night which is going to be lots of fun! We haven’t had one in a while, well I guess our Galentine’s counts, but we went out for pizza. It’ll be fun and a much needed girl time! Saturday, my husband and I will probably go to this game night at his friends house and Sunday will be stay at home and do nothing day (as usual) because Sundayz are for chilling and doing absolutely NOTHING πŸ™‚

There’s my very long update and I need a vacay :b talk to you soon!

Long weekend + the flu πŸ€’

Good morning!

Last post I talked about my Thanksgiving and that Friday I took work off. Well, Saturday was a very pretty day with a high of 62 degrees so later that night we went to a bonfire with some friends and it was nice. It wasn’t too cold, but it got chilly by 10pm. By the time we left, I was FREEZING. I just thought that it was just because I was by the fire and half of me was warm and half of me was cold. But as soon as I got into the car, my spine started hurting. It was the weirdest thing! After 15-20 mins, I started getting aches everywhere. When I got home, I was shaking uncontrollably and I felt like it was zero degrees in my house. I had Mirhad wrap me up in 4 blankets and give me Nyquil. That night I ended up having a fever which turned into the flu. I’ve been trying to get rid of it since then and haven’t gone into work with fear of getting everyone around me sick. I would hate that. So I’m not going in until my symptoms are gone.

Besides that darn flu, I haven’t been productive at all and it sucks!!! I’ve been trying to clean up little by little which is working, but I can see how weak I am and it’s weird because I haven’t had the flu since like 5 years ago. That time I didn’t get out of bed for 2 weeks and I feel like that would be the case with this if I didn’t have to work!Β 

I’m coming up with my 2019 goals list slowly, there are some good stuff on there so far! I have lots of plans for 2019 and I am super excited! I think it’ll be a great year πŸ™‚ Anyone else start coming up with their 2019 goals??

Today we will try to leave the house and go grocery shopping for some items and see if we can pick up something as a gift for my moms bday that’s in 2 days! We also have our nieces bday coming up next week so we need to find her a gift soon too.

But yeah, that’s my quick update.. until next time when I have a quality post and when I’m not sick πŸ™‚

Monday feelz + what I did this weekend!

Good morning and happy Monday!

Recap of my weekend:Β 

It’s Sunday and I tried my best to wake up this morning at like 7-8am so I could get more out of my day, but instead I couldn’t do it and woke up at 10:30. Makes me really sad since I have to go to work tomorrow and my whole day will be spent there. I really wish I had a cool work schedule like I work 3 days and then I’m off 3 days. That would be nice, but I am thankful that I am able to work from home sometimes and that I can be very flexible with my schedule.Β 

On Saturday we cleaned up some of the garage – who would’ve thought this would be a LONG process?! We don’t even have that much stuff so it’s like this should’ve been able to get done in a couple of hours lol. So I think today we’re going to finish cleaning it and might possibly put up the lights and set up the patio with the fire pit. Last night would’ve been a great time to make a bonfire, but Mirhad fell asleep right after he came back inside from cleaning the garage (typical) lol.Β 

Looks like the rest of this week will be pretty chilly and dry so that’s good at least that we won’t have rain. I think there’s nothing worse than it being cold outside + raining, at that point we don’t even want to leave the house Speaking of chilly weather, I’m about to bring out all of my winter stuff so I can wash my sweaters and wear them this week! Yay, I’ve put it off since this place can go from 50 degrees to 90 real quick, but the time has come!

I tried a pumpkin flavored coffee yesterday from Starbucks for the first time ever. We tried the pumpkin spice latte and the pumpkin spice frappucino or something like that. I thought the frap was too sweet for me, but the latte was perfect. I love pumpkin pie so I expected the latte to taste like that, so I was pretty happy when it was close! Glad I got to try it though, so now I can buy pumpkin spice latte creamer and put that in my coffee. I wasn’t sure if I’d like it, so I’m glad I didn’t buy it beforehand and possibly risk not liking it and throwing it away.Β 

I also bought Nescafe coffee, I decided to try something besides the Keurig. To be honest, the Keurig coffee doesn’t stay hot for long, but this one has since I pour boiling hot water into it. I like the flavor and I think it’s stronger than Keurig’s coffee too.Β 

I really want to go somewhere for the winter to sled/ski, but everything is so expensive. I was actually looking yesterday and I may have come up with a great idea. Need to see with everyone when they’re available etc.,Β 

Monday:

Went to work today and it was way too hot inside so I went outside to get some fresh air literally 5x, it was too much. I was having like heat flashes and stuff, it was so weird. Hopefully it’s not like this tomorrow!Β 

Today will just be a chill day, we got no sleep last night. I think it was because of the heat that was on, so the house couldn’t get cool even after we turned it off. I might go buy some melatonin to help us sleep better and maybe get silk sheets or whatever to keep us cool. Planning what to make today to eat, thinking of something with steak. This morning I was going to wake up at 5 and make some rice and chicken, but since I had horrible sleep I couldn’t get up. Going to try again tomorrow though, hoping I can get into that habit.

So since this is a VERY long post, I’ll stop here.

See ya! πŸ™‚

Saturday 🌸

Good morning!

Last time I blogged, we were getting Thor in just 5 days. Well, he’s here now!!! We got him Monday so it’s been 6 days and to be honest, it’s been a busy 6 days. I also started work on Monday so on top of Thor coming home, I’ve been SO TIRED. Every time my alarm goes off at 6 AM for work, he’s up wanting to go outside to use the bathroom. He came home to us partially potty trained, so we just had to show him where to go to the bathroom and he’s had a few accidents, but he’s still learning. Now when he wants to go to the bathroom, he usually goes to the door or whines for a bit. But he really does have a routine of going to the bathroom before going to bed and at 6 AM, it’s adorable.. he’s such a smart puppy.Β 

I could probably write a book about all of the cute little things he does, but I’ll just write a few right now. He slept in our bed for 2 nights because we just wanted some sleep because he whined all night. Recently, we found a brown recluse in the house, so Mirhad has been clearing out the house and doing all kinds stuff to get rid of them and have them stay out. So we let him sleep on our bed and it was the cutest thing, he turns to a new position like every 20 or so minutes and at one point he ended up by my feet and right in between our pillows trying to take over them. So cute! Last night, we got him to sleep in his bed surrounded by the crate and I don’t know how this happened, but we woke and he was above Mirhad’s head sleeping on his pillow. We laughed so hard and put him back in his bed.. he’s such a little sneakster. He seriously melts my heart.Β 

First week of work was good, Adisa and I had lunch together everyday, we just switch which building! I didn’t get any real work this week, but I was able to get training, cleaning/decorating my cube, and other first week check-list stuff done. I’m very excited to start working on the real stuff, my co-worker who was my mentor last summer is out of the country for 3 weeks so when she’s back she’s handing over some roles to me, YAY!

Glad it’s the weekend though, it’s been a tiring week. I wanted to sleep in this morning, but Thor did not want to sleep so he whined for a while. He did knock out for about 2 hours, but then woke up around 8 wanting to go pee and eat. Did all of that and he played with some of his toys and now he’s napping. I found out that puppies at around 8 weeks nap between 18-22 hours a day.. crazy because he’s ALWAYS napping unless people are over to see him. But seriously, it’s only been 6 days and Mirhad and I are in love with him, he’s such a perfect fit with our little family πŸ™‚Β 

Today Mirhad will be working on the house, but I think we might go grocery shopping first and later I might go buy some stuff for my cubicle to decorate it. I already put pictures up and printed some more I have to pick up today. It’s mostly pictures of Thor, here are some btw.. πŸ™‚

Love him!!!! 😍😍😍

Started watching this show called Dynasty, it’s pretty good, I am watching it currently while drinking coffee which I haven’t had since I started working because my mornings are so busy and I forget, but I’ve missed it! I’m about to make some breakfast.. probably eggs with avocados.. my faveΒ πŸ˜‹

Until next time.. bye! πŸ™‚Β 

A day in the Rocky Mountains! β›°

On Saturday we spent a day in the Rockies and had a lot of fun. Here are some pictures we took. We went to Bear Lake of course and then we hiked down to this Glacier trail where there was a waterfall. It was a difficult hike, I felt like I couldn’t make it back up, but we did it hahaha. Love this park though, it is a true beauty.

Hi!

Happy Saturday! It’s very cold and rainy here and it’s making me soooo lazy, but I need to snap out of it because I have to catch up on this financial management homework and notes. Went with Sanela this morning so she could finally buy a Macbook, yay!!! And then I went to the house because my parents are doing the floors and it looks SO GOOD. I love the color we picked, I think it goes perfectly with the house. Will do a house update post soon πŸ˜€

Today, I am going to finish my financial management stuff and just chill. I’m at Sanela’s currently, blogging, and we are making some chicken masala with rice. Hopefully it turns out good.

Will try to make another fun post later tonight when I finish this work!

See ya! πŸ™‚
