"Cheyenne, congrats on your new baby!"

"hi cheyenne! I was just calling to say congratulations on your new baby....I heard she was born yesterday weighing in at 5.4 pounds and is 15 inches wide!"

That was the voicemail I got from my friend Lauren this past Saturday evening. I was totally confused at first...."what is she talking about?", I asked myself, but then realized she was congratulating me on my most recent exciting photography related purchase - my beautiful and lovely MacBook Pro!


Let me tell you - it wasn't the easiest purchasing process of my life. It wasn't until the THIRD visit to the Apple store that we finally went through with it and walked out with the box filled with silvery goodness. I am not a computer gal by nature - I just wasn't wired in a way that I am able to understand all of the ins and outs of technology...so it was totally overwhelming and frustrating trying to pick out just what I needed/wanted. Anyone that knows me can tell you that I can get really emotional really quickly. During our second visit to Apple I actually had to go out in the middle of the mall so I wouldn't cry in front of the employees. Ha! It makes me laugh now, but at the time, it wasn't all that funny. The guy who was helping us just made me feel stupid.

Last Friday was our lucky day - we were hooked up with the wonderful and fabulous Apple genious - Alli. She was SUPER patient, helpful, knowledgeable and not at all pushy. I actually hugged her after we had the receipt in hand.

So, now begins the next frustrating and overwhelming process of actually learning to USE my new mac. Actually, I'm QUITE excited and can't wait to see the difference in my workflow.

Yay for my mac!

Congrats on overcoming the purchase of technology...I have been trying to change my phone for six months...did it take you that long?

Nothing about the house yet on your blog?
