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!

It’s Over

Well, my birthday is over and I am officially 25.  I think it is safe to say that 24 went out with a bang though.  Oh lordy, where do I start?  I hit the road immediately after leaving work on Friday, and made it to Bethany Beach around 7:00 without encounter too much traffic and just as the boys arrived home from their golf outing.  At this point there were 7 of us there and we got right to grilling up some burgers.  Danielle and Adrienne were awesome and also picked up 3lbs of fresh shrimp for everyone and a crab cake for me :).  Thanks ladies!

After dinner the real fun began, the four remaining guests arrived and Dani and Adrienne surprised everyone by springing a JMU Beer Olympics on us.  They had set up two teams, one purple and one gold and planned out the events.  We played flip cup, a new game called JOOSEHeart, another new game called Blackout, and Thumper.  I think I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking for this post.  Enjoy!

Team Dukes

Team JMU

JOOSEHeart is played like beer pong, except you have 28 cups, and the back middle six are filled with JOOSE.  If before you shoot you scream JOOSEHEART and make it in one of the JOOSE filled cups, all six are taken away.  You only can try this once though, if you miss you are done.  The rest of the game is played like regular beer pong after the JOOSE cups are drank.

my turn to shoot

The ladies sticking together

And it ended like this

We had a 10 am pick-up time scheduled for taxis to take us to Seacrets on Saturday morning, so we were all up bright and early.  Surprisingly, no one felt awfully hungover after our night of Beer Olympics.  The cabs picked us up and we were at Seacrets about 10 minutes before the doors opened at 11 am.  Seacrets was just as amazing as I expected it to be, I think I need to make it a tradition to celebrate my birthday there every year.

No clue what's going on here

Needless to say, I came home showered and promptly passed out for two hours.  I think it is safe to say the only reason I got out of the bed was because the bf told me there was pizza.  It was really the best birthday ever, and I was so glad to be with 10 of some of my best friends from JMU.

After such an amazing weekend, I was not looking forward to going home and being by myself.  Luckily I had my new iPod Nano from the bf to play with!

And then I got to thinking, what better to go with a new iPod than a new MacBook!  I finally caved and bought one last night, and I am very excited.  The laptop I was currently using is from 2003, so it was about time for an upgrade.  According to FedEx tracking, it should arrive by the end of the week.

My mom also gave me a great birthday gift, a beautiful new watch!

No those aren’t diamonds, they are all Swarovski crystals.  It is a little too snug, so I’ll be heading out to KOP to have one or two links added to it this week.  All in all, it was a great birthday and I didn’t end up feeling too bad about turning 25.  Although, I will definitely be recovering until at least Wednesday.

I hope everyone had a great weekend.  Try not to hate that it’s Monday too much!
