I’m all official to drive away into the sunset with my new car. I got my new car blessed! I went to meet my mom for lunch at the church rectory on Wednesday after class and we saw one of the priests walking around and we asked him if he had time to bless my car and he did. My car has now been blessed and sprinkled with Holy Water inside and out 🙂
My new Macbook Air came this week and I LOVE IT!! It’s so fast and new and I like learning all the tricks on the trackpad that I feel like I need a cheat sheet for LOL. Plus the 12 hour battery life is awesome! I sold my old iMac because I missed having a laptop so I only paid half price for this one. Win-Win. I know all you mac haters are probably rolling your eyes but I love macs and in the 3 years I’ve had them have had 1000% less issues than any of my windows machines. Oh well everyone is different 🙂
In preparation for my first BIG blogging conference to Allume in October I’m thinking about taking the plunge and having my blog professionally redesigned. I also want to get business cards to match. I just need to come up with a budget and find a designer and think about what I want it to look like.
Lately I have been writing A LOT of blog posts with facts about me. This is kind of weird for me because I find myself/my life pretty boring and don’t think I’m all that interesting. But the Allume conference had a link-up for us to write about ourselves for others to know/our roommates to know about which was kind of fun to write about my weird quirks. Then the Not Alone Singles Series this week had a survey for us to fill out. That was fun as well. That’s been a fun series to participate in.
I know you guys are probably SICK of hearing about my Recipe drama but I found a cool trick this week. If you want to use Evernote to help you store your recipes or heck for anything get the “Evernote Web Clipper” for your web browser (I use Chrome I’m sure they have it for others). When you find a recipe you want to save you click it on your toolbar and it highlights the words on the page and then asks you what “Folder” on evernote you want to save it in. It’s a HUGE timesaver when surfing the web.
I’m not much of a sports fan but I LOVE College Football but more in the passive type as in I like to know when my Alma Mater is playing and I like to know if they win or lose but if I can’t see the game on TV I don’t really care which is 95% of the games since I live in Florida and my Alma Mater is in Texas. I do have a cool app that sends me notifications when games are starting and people score so it works.
My current favorite Matt Maher song is from his newest album and is actually the title of his album – All The People Say Amen. I listen to it in my car almost everyday and there is something about the melody and the words and the message all mixed together that make me happy and feel good.
