'mac'ro monday

Alrighty friends! The days of my computer locking up with every click of the mouse are (hopefully) finally over! My husband brought home a new friend this weekend (an iMac) and I'm almost in love! Almost...because it isn't totally up and running yet. We need some basic programs and we have to upgrade CS4 to CS5. (I didn't want to; you have to). Thank goodness Lightroom will transfer nicely with no upgrade/crossover issues.

Here are a couple quick shots of my new toy. :-)







I just realized I only took shots of the keyboard - duh! Well, we had a wild and crazy weekend...and putting up all four Christmas trees was just one of the many things on our list. :-) We totally re-did our family Christmas tree (if you remember last year, I said I had one year to change it from Hallmark to Pottery Barn), and each of the kids have their own trees for their rooms. One is cute and sparkly, one is stylish and cool, and one is gaudy and tack-tastic! My kids read my blog, so I will not clarify further. *wink*

Happy Monday all! :-)

I'm so jealous! I can't wait to have an iMac! Congratulations on your new toy! The keyboard is pretty....

We will be putting our tree up this week, and I am really excited. I hate to put all my Christmas decorations in January. Can't wait to see all of your trees!

Well, I'm glad you're happy with it, even though I don't like Macs. hehe. How much do you want for CS4??? :-D

Kristal said...

Why did you have to upgrade to CS5? I got a new MacBook Pro two weeks ago and am running CS3 on it. I so love my Mac... hated Windows. {It was an early birthday present from my parents}.

Love it and now I have computer envy.
I just put up our one tree with Lexi tonight. I can't imagine doing four. Hugs and love you

You know... I don't even know the difference between a Mac and a PC. ;) But, I'm happy that you're happy! :D

We put up our tree this weekend. Just one. ;) But we decorate two outside. :D

Gaudy and tack-tastic? Sounds awesome. :D

The mere thought of four trees makes me collapse in exhaustion. Congrats on the mac! We're getting close to a computer upgrade here too, fingers crossed!

But it was ALL good! :o)

You know - that I value your compliments so incredibly much, right?! I wait on pins and needles for you to check my posts and let me know what you think.

And once again, I'm beyond tickled pink at your sweet, kind compliments! Wow Wow Wow!

THANK YOU!!!!!!

About a month back we switched from a pc to an iMac and I am completely in love! I cannot say enough about how amazing it is and how stunning photographs show up on the screen. I love being able to zoom the screen in, and how when viewing pictures in iPhoto, it goes full screen. Enjoy!

Hannah said...

Awesome new toy! You are going to LOVE it! I love my mac! So happy you won't have anymore computer issues!

Heath said...

It's about time! You will never look back once you get past the tiny learning curve. I've had multiple family members move over the years. Each one convincing the next how much easier and solid the experience is.

Did you get the 27" with an i7? It's fantastic for photo and video editing.
