WEEKEND UPDATE.



RECAPS
1 | There's a new Mac in the house. After 7 long years, my poor Macbook just wasn't cutting it. I would sit around for hours just trying to complete a couple of things and would constantly get the spinning rainbow of death. Last week I finally replaced it and it was totally worth it. The new Macbook, named Flynn Rider, works like a dream.

2 | My 26th birthday. Thank you all so much for your sweet birthday wishes!! I felt so loved all day. A couple of my coworkers took me to lunch, and then my work surprised me with an ice cream cake when we got back! I closed out the day with homemade pizza and a Divergent movie night.

3 | World's longest yard sale. This yard sale stretches for 690 miles from Michigan to Alabama and passes over Signal Mountain in Tennessee. So my friends and I loaded up in the car and headed up the mountain to do some deal hunting.

4 | Birthday game night. My best friend came in town this weekend and my whole core group came over Saturday night to celebrate my birthday, play games, and eat ice cream cake. We played Taboo and the most hilarious rounds of Telephone Pictionary. I laughed so much my stomach hurt. I love those people and am so thankful for that community.

That is AWESOME that you name your computers. I'm not the only one! ;-) When I was younger and lived with my parents, we had so many computers that I had to name each one so I would know which to troubleshoot. I also named them after movie characters! Happy Birthday and nice to meet you!

Let me tell you about this mornings conversation with Tyler.

"We're going to move to Connecticut, Meg will come visit. I will introduce Meg to Drew. They will get married."

#Ihaveproblems

Megan McIlvaine said...

Hahahahahaha. I just laughed out loud. I can only imagine how this went down, and in my mind I see Tyler just rolling his eyes at you.

Samantha@Elah Tree said...

His reply.



"They won't date? They'll just get married?"


Yes.

Megan McIlvaine said...

Your reply, "Date? Ain't nobody got time for that."

Jenna Guizar said...
