The weekend, briefly

Busy, busy weekend here. Sometimes the number of pictures I manage to snap seems to be inversely related to how much activity is going on. I still don't have a computer, and I'm seriously considering going to the store and just buying the first laptop I see because I don't feel like doing any research.

the cake

fresh lemonade

fabric roses

red stripe

Follow up posts to come on everything except the drinks. Because what is there to say about the lemonade and beer, really?

  5. i'm in favor of the first-laptop-comes-home-with-me approach. i mean, it always works with kittens.

  6. That pic of the birthday cake is wonderful! I, too, bought my laptop at the first place I looked. If it's within my budget and will do what I want it to, I'm sold. You can always add external memory and all that jazz ;)

  10. Love that cakestand with flowers! Such a pretty arrangement, looks delish. I know how you feel about finding a computer, mine died over the weekend and rather than deal with fixing it for the 3rd time I think its just time for a new one! Ditto on the Macbook - they'll take care of everything. So easy. :)

  21. Beautiful cake! Where do you get those candles? If you can't afford the MacBook Pro, go with the bigger Macbook, I loooove mine!

  22. All of the photos are amazing - the lemonade and the cake pictures are making me very very hungry. I always look forward to your posts.

    I, too, have to give an enthusiastic endorsement for Mac. I've had a Mac Book for three years and haven't had a single problem. You can also buy a refurbished laptop - they're much less $$ and you can buy the same warranty protection as a brand new computer.

    On the flipside, my mother-in-law is having a terrible time with her Dell laptop; both the machine itself and their terrible customer service - stay away!
