Look what came today!
My new Macbook Pro is here!
I’ll admit I was having a very stressful, long day before this, but having a new toy to play with as soon as I got home made it all sooo much better. 😉
At first I wasn’t sure how I was going to transfer all my data from my old Macbook to the new one, but – of course – the great people at Apple made it so easy.
All I had to do was plug in the ethernet cord and migrate.
Of course, I wasn’t the sharpest crayon on the box and began the process after I had already uploaded all my photos from the day; therefore tonight’s post is a little later than normal. Oh well.
Worth it!! Everything transferred easily and my desktop on the new mac is identical to m previous one. Even all my passwords and settings are already in place. Love, love, love it!! 🙂
I wish I could say the rest of my day was equally as interesting, but it wasn’t. I was glued to a chair in our training room having my brain overloaded with much needed information. It was intense.
Midmorning I snuck in a serving of Cinnamon Pita Chips to nibble on.
FYI: Pita chips are not the best snack for quite meeting rooms. The whole time I swore everyone was staring at me as I crunched down on the noisy chips! 🙂
Lunch was catered today by Roly Poly!
I had two of the Monster Veggie mini wraps and some of the Spa Salad.
I <3 their veggie wraps!
I grabbed 1/2 a cookie and ate it later in the afternoon.
My brain was actually mush by the time I made it home. Two nine hour days in a row of training is really draining. I enjoyed a good cry on the way home and it really helped to alleviate some of the stress. Sometimes a girl just needs a good cry. 🙂
Dinner was cooked and eaten in a big rush since I had to drop Maddie off with my parents.
I microwaved a sweet potato for 5 minutes.
And made a REALLY good Mushroom & Onion Gravy with Gardien Beefless Tips that I served over lightly steamed kale.
Gravy is very easy to make. I sauteed the mushroom & onions with a bit of olive oil and lots of pepper and oregano. Then added the beefless tips and sprinkled some whole wheat flour to soak up any grease. Next, I poured in about 1/2 a cup of milk, brought to a boil, and simmered until it was thick.
The whole dish ended up being amazing! 🙂
I have the BEST parents. They met me halfway, so I didn’t have to worry about driving all the way to Titusville to bring Maddie to their place.
Thank You Mom and Dad!! 🙂
I told them about the long day and we agreed Frozen Yogurt was in order!
I had the Tart & Raspberry Tart swirl with lots of fruit and graham cracker crumbs.
I also picked up some cupcakes as a special treat for the family I’m crashing with in Colorado Springs this weekend. My cousin has three little girls – I hope they love cupcakes!! 🙂
The owner from Sweet! was actually on the new Food Network show, Cupcake Wars, the other week and WON! I’ve been a fan of Sweet! since she opened 3 or 4 years ago. It was nice to see the little shop get a little national recognition. 🙂
I spent way too much of my evening playing with the new computer. It’s now way past my bedtime and I’ve got an early morning.
