You must excuse me today as I am dealing with a whole different set-up which is just taking some getting used to! What do I mean by that? Well, the worst thing (and yes, I know there could be worse things) happened yesterday.
It may sound like I am exaggerating when I say that the worst thing happened to me yesterday, but I am totally not. Something to know is that my life is my computer. I work for myself and I work from home, so without my handy little MacBook Pro, it would be very hard to get anything done in the world. And yesterday of all days was deadline day where I had about 20 articles due. Yesterday morning I went to Peets to find my computer continually acting up, so I went to the genius bar. It wouldn't even turn on by the time I brought it in. He thought it was the logic board that basically runs the whole computer that was out. It costs about $450 to repair not to mention being out of a computer for the next few days. He came back and said there was some sort of water and sticky stuff in the computer that messed with the logic board and the battery. Major bummer. The guy was nice but he told me that this is where the conversation gets a whole lot harder because it costs about $800 to repair. Major bummer. Although I was sort of happy with the idea of just getting a brand new computer.
Anyways, I was really annoyed and freaking out about what to do without a computer at least for the rest of the day when he came back. He said he briefly told his manager what the problem was and the manager told him to cover the repairs (aka FREE) and ship it out! WHAT??? OMG, I was shocked. $800 worth of repairs and the only downside was I didn't have a computer for a week. I'll take it. So we shipped it out and he let me go off on my merry way thanking me for being an Apple customer. And that is when it hit me how smart Apple is. Most other people would take their $800 elsewhere and never deal with Apple again. By repairing it for free they kept me as an Apple customer for life. Although, let's face it, I was already an apple customer for life.
So for the next week my dad let me use his windows computer. I was skeptical at first, but I am getting used to it. He even has one with the tap-to-click mouse pad. The only major issue I have with this thing is that you have to use the mouse to manually scroll down every time you want to move the window! OMG how annoying is that. Normally I just put two fingers on the mouse pad and it scrolls. So tell me people, how do you deal with that???? OMG it is such a waste of time! Aside from that it is just a matter of getting used to not having my programs, not having my passwords saved everywhere and things like that.
OK now that that whole story is over with, let's talk paper! I abso-freaking-lutely love all the amazing things you can do with paper! And with any color you ever want, the options are definitely endless. I actually think I could have/should have used more fun papers in my wedding. So for a truly spring wedding, add a little bit of pizazz with these little guys!
I love simple little flags with something super fun on them. It is by far one of the easiest ways to personalize a wedding ever!
