Old and New

Happy Thursday everyone! This is my very first post from my brand new MacBook and using ecto. Yesterday after work, I immediately went to FedEx to pick up my new baby, and then when I arrived home I saw another package waiting for me on the front steps!


So many prizes! The smaller box is my new Nike armband for my iPod nano and the iPod touch I received with my computer. And then of course, the big box was this!


Hooray! I have wanted a Mac for years and years, when I was in college all the computer labs in my majors building only had Macs and I became addicted. Now I finally have one of my own. I immediately set to work transferring my old iTunes library to my new computer and playing around. Just so you have an idea of what I was working with before, I give you old vs. new.



Haha everything is significantly smaller. After I had a sufficient fill of playing with my new toys, I took a break to heat up some dinner. Leftover Zucchini and Yellow Squash Lasagna with a piece of garlic mozzarella bread on the side.



Just as delicious as it was the first time. After dinner I sat on the couch some more with my new computer and just hanging out watching some TV. I caught a re-run of Tuesday’s Teen Mom, so I was finally able to watch the last half an hour. The boyfriend hates the show, but it is definitely one of my guilty pleasures.

This weekend coming up is one of the only weekends of the entire summer that I am home. The bf is hosting his brothers bachelor party up in NYC, so I plan on vegging out at the pool, doing some shopping at KOP, and hanging out with my sister. After this it’s go, go, go again. Whoever said summer was time to relax was clearly delusional.

Alright, well I hope everyone has a fantastic day! Almost time for another weekend!

  1. The Mac is something I never mastered… I’d be so lost if I got stuck on one in the computer lab! But yours looks snazzy… 🙂 As does the new nano! Another reminder I need to upgrade from still listening to music on my phone…

    Enjoy the chill weekend!

    • Haha it’s not really that different, there’s just no right click so you need to have the actual commands memorized. Enjoy your birthday weekend! I expect to have some good stories to read!

  2. YAY for new stuff! Our PC has been acting up lately and I’m kind of hoping it’ll crash so we can get a new computer. We’re thinking laptop this time too, vs. another desktop. (We do have a backup external HD so we won’t lose anything when it dies.)

  3. I love Apple products!

  4. Very exciting!!! I love coming home to fun packages like that. It makes my day!

  5. Woo! New toys! I’m actually using a new computer today, but it is only because I ruined my laptop. And the new computer is my mom’s. And it’s a temporary solution. Regardless! Have fun with the Mac. I’m diehard PC, but mostly because I’m averse to change and pretty things.

    • Oh, that old lap top? Once had an entire bottle of diet coke spilled across the keyboard. I have no idea how it worked for 7 years. My cat also used to lay across it when she was little. I was a media arts and design major in school so macs are alllll we used, I got so used to them

  6. So exciting! I want a Mac so badly!!! Keep us posted on how you like it!

  7. I watched the Teen Mom re-run last night too. So glad you mentioned it yesterday so I didn’t miss it again!

    I’ve been toyng with the idea of getting a Mac. They confuse the crap out of me but they just seem so fun!

    • I had been trying to decide whether or not to actually buy one for a good year, and finally just went for it. No regrets yet!

  8. How exciting to get a new laptop!! Have fun with it!! 🙂

    I am so addicted to Teen Mom… I can’t wait for the new season!!!!!!!

    • This season is so good so far, granted their has only been one episode, but I love how it’s still following the same first group of girls.

  9. I am trying to get the hang of the difference between PC and Mac but I am illiterate when it comes to that! 😦 Go figure when my brother is in IT haha. I def need to take advantage of the technology out there. Oh and btw I think I am stealing your idea and getting the bf a ipod touch too. But we will see….

    • Haha yeah I got the hang of Macs in college, but before then I had no idea what I was doing. In my experience electronics are always a good choice. I got the bf and xbox for v-day and that was a huge hit also.

  10. Yay! I am a mac girl all the way. You’re going to love it.

  11. Oh, enjoy your new computer! It looks so snazzy 🙂

  12. whoohoo! I love my mac.

    Do oyu like ecto? I never liked it :(.

    • I’m not sure yet, I’ve heard about a lot of problems people have with it. Windows Live Writer definitely seems a little better, but we’ll see how this goes.

  13. I’m writing that I love this from my Macbook Pro.
