I've had a busy few weeks with getting some new things in my life that I absolutely love! My MacBook that I have had for over 3 years had an issue with the video card. I took it in to the Apple store and decided that I should just get a new MacBook Air because who knows if putting the money into fixing it will benefit if something else would happen. I use my laptop for EVERYTHING! It goes with me pretty much anywhere: school, campus, Salt Lake. I do so much work on my computer that I felt like I definitely got my money worth with all the school activities I created, with how many papers I typed, etc. I am in LOVE with my MacBook Air. It is thin and weighs like two pounds.
I have also been looking for a cute cruiser bike to stroll around Logan in, but haven't been able to find one for cheap. My good friend told me about one sold at a yard sale for cheap...and it's purple, the best color ever! I picked it up today and I LOVE it!! It's so cute!
And last, but by far not least, I got a brand spankin' new car! I've been researching cars for the last month or so, and knew I wanted a Mazda 3 because it's a very cute car and fits my needs. I was planning on buying one in October because that's when my credit card would be paid off, so I could afford car payments, something I haven't had in about 4 years! Bryce suggested going to a dealer to research new and used cars, get my questions answered and get a feel for the car, so I agreed. I wasn't expecting to walk out with a new car yet! But the deal was too good to pass off. I had to say goodbye to my Cord, the car that I have had over the past 8 years of my life. We got through a lot together-starting my teaching career and taking me back and forth from Logan to Tremonton for my job, moving to Denver and driving back and forth from Colorado to Utah a few times, road trips to San Diego, Spokane, Las Vegas, and all over Utah. I basically live in Salt Lake on weekends now and it got me through lots of weekend trips back and forth from Salt Lake to Logan. I put over 150,000 miles on that car and it worked like a charm. But it was time for an upgrade. They let me trade in my car for a good deal as a down payment, and they were also doing a deal that I could wait 90 days to make my first payment, which fit perfectly into October being the time to first pay. It had 8 miles on it, has power locks and windows (something I have never had!), and key less entry. It's black, shiny and SOO cute! I will post an actual picture of it when I quit being lazy and send it from my phone to my computer. I'm excited to see what adventures I have in my new car! I'm also on the hunt for a good name for my car. Any suggestions?
