a long week

It’s been a full week since I last posted. Things have been a bit crazy around here. Yesterday I performed the wedding ceremony for my sister-in-law, Janna. Weddings are wonderful events, but they definitely take a lot out of you.

In addition to this, Kent has been sick. Nasty sick. But I won’t give you the details.

About two and a half weeks ago, I got my first Macbook. I say first, because after just a few days of using it, I love it. Setting up my email was ridiculously easy. On my PC, I have to go into a settings menu and figure POP and SMTP settings as well as encryption info. Not on the mac. It already knew my email address because of the Apple ID I have through iTunes. I simply put in my gmail password and voila. It did the rest for me.

Things I love about my Macbook so far:

  • Ease of setup
  • Runs fast (we’ll see how it keeps up over time)
  • Built in webcam
  • iLife software (made Janna’s wedding video w/iMovie)
  • “Wakes” from Sleep Mode in seconds
  • iTunes actually opens
  • Magnetic power adapter
  • Built in Bluetooth (I can easily transfer files from my cell)

Of course, I wouldn’t be a Mac user if I didn’t make use of Photobooth. So here are some of my favorites pics from our first time couple times playing with it.
