Today I Became A MacBook Owner!!

I've never been one to jump on the technology bandwagon...I'm always the one a few years behind the times. I got my first smart phone in college, a laptop shortly after, and I've always bought used. My mom was the first one in our family to get an iPad, and I thought it was the dumbest thing to spend $400 on something that little...until my husband bought me one. Before he deployed, he bought me an iPad so we could FaceTime, and I couldn't comprehend why he felt the need to spend that much money on something I would never use. Here I am months later, and I use my iPad EVERY SINGLE DAY! I love it and now when I look back, I don't know how I ever survived without it (well I do, but I don't ever want to go back). I've had the same laptop for the past 7 years, and just recently it decided it wanted to stop working and give me the pink screen of death (I always thought it was a black screen, but news to me, it's pink). I've been saying for years that I would buy myself a MacBook, but never could talk myself into getting one...call me crazy, but paying the mortgage was more important in my mind. My husband kept telling me to just buy one because I keep asking for one...and we'll...today was the day!

I met my mom for lunch at Noodles and Co. (which just opened) and it was fantastic! They have a futuristic pop machine and its literally the coolest thing ever! I could have played with it all day if mom had let me. You could pick any kind of pop you wanted. For example: Mom had Diet Coke, so when you pushed the button, there were like 10 options to pick from (lime, cherry, lemon, caffeine free, etc). It was so dang cool!



After lunch, we decided to stop at Best Buy to "look" at MacBooks and price them out...and what do you know, they were on sale! As my husband always tells me, just because something is on sale or you have a coupon doesn't mean you have to buy it. In this case, I had no intention on actually buying a computer today, but somehow it just happened. Mom and I (mostly mom) talked to the sales guy, mom was texting my dad and youngest sister (both owners of MacBooks and live by them) to make sure we were getting a good deal, and I was trying to get in touch with my husband to get the final "ok" to buy the Mac. Since there's an 8 hour time difference I didn't think there was any way my husband would still be up, but surprisingly he answered, and told me to just buy it. I painstakingly swiped the credit card and became a the proud owner of a MacBook Pro! Yikes :)




Now I just have to teach myself how to use it! Thanks to my mom for dragging me into Best Buy and the hubby for letting me get my birthday present early! Happy birthday to me 6 months early :)

  1. Love the green case! So glad you finally got a new laptop. It was truly a learning experience today. Maybe someday I will own one too! But for now, the Ipad will have to suffice.

  4. I got my Macbook Pro when I started College 4 years ago! It was so confusing at first since I had always been PC but I will NEVER go back! I think they are so much easier to use now! Have fun exploring it! They have so many cool features!

    1. It's so confusing to figure out, but I'm hoping to have some time this week to play around with it. I agree, I won't ever go back to a PC now that I have a Mac!
