Major Purchases

Yesterday I got an awesome UPS package in the mail. Even the UPS guy was excited about it. It is a sleek, brand new, totally awesome MacBook Pro! I've been saving for awhile for a new computer since my MacBook was 5 years old and it's battery was kinda going out. I was waiting for Mac to release the latest models and ordered it immediately on Tuesday. I sat around all morning at home waiting for my brand new computer and was not disappointed when it finally came around noon. I love getting new technology and I'm super pumped I got over summer so I have time to play around on it and create new products for TPT (any suggestions?).

Another major purchase made this month were my wedding dress!!! Which was not actually purchased by me (thanks Mom & Dad) but was still a huge and major purchase. It was a super fun day with my Mom, maid of honor Paige, Mother in Law, and step Mother in Law (is there another name?). I loved trying on beautiful gowns and everyone was so helpful in my decision making. Once I choose my dress which I'm completely obsessed with we popped some champagne and celebrated.  I would love to show you pictures but my Dad does not want to see pictures until the day of the wedding and he reads my blog. I will show you a picture of my best friend, MOH Paige and I the day of though and the sweet present she got me to hang my dress on.

My third major purchase my was plane ticket to Atlanta for next week. I going to visit one my best friends and bridesmaids with another best friend and bridesmaid. We've all be great friends since college and I'm super excited for a girls extended long weekend. 

Hope you're having a fabulous summer! I'll be posting again today about Daily 5 and Houghton Mifflin so stayed tuned.
