Valentine's Day & a question for Mac users.

How was your Valentine's Day?!?

I'm currently typing on my band new MACBOOK PRO!!

For Christmas one thing my parents gave me was $200 towards my MacBook. Lucas said he'd pay for a couple hundred.. However, I sucked at saving my money so Lucas said that for my birthday he'd pay for more of my MacBook. So, I decided to start saving. I have a few hundred saved up to go towards my MacBook.. 

Well, it's about 5:30 on Valentine's Day and we plan on leaving for the Maroon 5 concert at 6:30. I ask Lucas if I was getting anything for Valentine's Day.. he tells me that he has to run to he store. 

I was pissed. I told him not to get me something last minute and being the complete brat I am I told him that it wouldn't top my rings from the past two years. 

Around 6:15 he calls me to tell me he's almost here and asks me why I sounded so upset. He walks in the door a few minutes later with flowers. He's very good at picking out flowers. Even though I tell him to just go buy cheap ones he always goes to a florist and picks out the ones he knows I'd like. I'm not a big fan of roses, I like different flowers, really pretty ones. He really does always do an awesome job at picking flowers.. but, I was still kind of bummed.. and I'm so embarrassed by it but, I actually said to him, "I really thought that you would of surprised me with a MacBook." And here's the thing, I never thought that. It was that moment of being really mad and I just said the most selfish thing I could think of. 

He told me that he would get it for my birthday and he had my gift in his car. He goes outside and comes back in with.. my MacBook Pro. With 2 year insurance, virus protection.. everything. I started balling. I felt awful. But, I was so surprised and so happy. I guess sometimes last minute gifts aren't so bad. And I guess sometimes my only child syndrome shines through.


Maroon 5 was FABULOUS!! But, I'll save that for another day.


I do have a quick question for all Mac users! My other laptop was Windows.. I used live writer to write all my blog posts. I felt like it was so much easier and I really loved it. Obviously I can't use it now with my Mac. I tried to find other blog editors and I couldn't find any free ones. I really would rather not pay for an editor.. unless I know for sure that it's amazing. What do you guys use for your blog posts or do you just use blogger?! HELP!!!



I'm here to show off what I received from a Valentine's Day swap I participated in!

Love, Fun & Football

The amazing Wendy from Our Happily Ever After sent me the perfect gift!



I was a little sad that the fondue set broke during shipping.. 
but, the chocolate didn't and I believe my mom has a small one so I can still use it!



I was so happy with everything Wendy sent me! It's very possible that the chocolate didn't last more than 3 days.. ooops.

Hope you all had the perfect Valentine's Day! I also hope that all the candy is on sale now!
