Hello, September

Click here to view full size

Wow! Where has the time gone? Is it really September 4th? The last month has flown by.
Today, the kids are in school all day and the husband has returned to work, for the first time since his surgery, a month ago. It is time to be productive. On the list of productivity is blogging, of course. I had not had the time to focus on writing almost anything while the Mr was here. Is it fair to call him 'needy' ... maybe, but he did need a lot of help the first few weeks.

September is, hands down, my favorite month of the year. Always has been, always will be. I'm sure this is in no small part due to it being my birth month, but also the cooling in the air, the trees changing colors, and an all around freshness to the outdoors. As if those reasons weren't enough to seal the deal of my love for September, I was also blessed, six years ago, with my lovely, lively, and outspoken daughter. With our birthdays being just 10 days apart, we tend to spend the whole month celebrating our awesomeness.

Dollface & the crazy Ginger

I'm not entirely sure what we will get her for her birthday this year, buuuut looky what my hubs surprised me with!

At All

I am stoked! I've been playing around with it for the last couple days and the pros seem to outweigh the cons.

  • That it is so lightweight weighing in at just 3 lbs.
  • It doesn't get hot.
  • The magnetic cord feature. (This is actually why we thought we should go MacBook in the 1st place. I have a horrible reputation when it comes to laptop cords and completely ruining them.)
  • Apps are fun and there are so many of them! 
  • Battery Life. Holy Ravioli! 7+ hours of battery life. Cant beat that with a stick. 
I am a little puzzled tho. I've read over and over again that quite a lot of bloggers use Macs and prefer them for their blogging needs. But I want to know WHY? What makes blogging with a Mac so special?


  1. Aw, love the pic of those two cuties! I already saw it on IG! :)
    And what an AWESOME birthday gift! Enjoy it!
    When is your birthday?
    Hugs xxx

    1. I feel like I know so many people so much better because of IG! I LOVE all of your Germany pictures. So gorgeous!

      Myra's b-day is the 20th and mine is the 30th. Yep, the last day of Sept. :)

  2. Hey lady, Just stopping by to let you know I nominated you for The Versatile Blogger Award :D

    1. Thanks! I'll check it out :)

    2. I'm so jealous of that Mac, so gorgeous!
      I can't believe September is here already - going by so fast. Sort of scary!

    3. Thanks! I'm slowly getting used to it. & time is flying! Lets hope the next year done as well. Has your sis been through a deployment before? This will be our 587234 one (ha) so if she has any questions or anything, she can ask away!

  3. Fall is my favorite too, well ok, maybe it's winter. Im basically just on board with getting rid of the summertime heat.

    P.s> - Yay for gingers!

    1. I am all about no more heat! I live in coastal georgia for almost 10 year, ohhh the humidity...., and now I'm in the deserts of west texas. I'm DONE with heat. Move me to Alaska and I'll be happy...for a few days. :)

  4. Totally agree, September is a fabulous month. My favorite part has to be the fact that the heat starts to die down a bit. Ugh, I hate hot weather.

    Great birthday gift! My husband's awful at keeping secrets too. I have to admit, it's something I love & hate about him.

    1. Same here! Although it was FAN-FREAKIN-TASTIC getting my Mac a month early, I'm sure I'll have a slight sad face on my actual birthday. Can't really complain tho.
