Best. Weekend. Ever.

There were about a zillion times over the last few days I stopped and thought to myself "Could this weekend get any better?"


And it just kept going!


I only took a couple pics over the weekend but I remembered a few times! Linking up today with Story of My Life.


Reason #1

Two words. MacBook Pro.

The day has finally come. I am typing this post from my brand mew 13 inch MacBook Pro!




I am obsessed with Macs and more importantly, Apple as a whole. W and I both have iPhones and he has an iPad. His work computer (which is from the dark ages) and my college HP laptop acting as our "family computer" just wasn't cutting it.

Anyway, it's beautiful. I am still in the process of deciding what accessories to buy, but I do have one... and that leads me to...

Reason #2



After leaving the Apple Store W wanted to look around and get a few ideas of what I may want for Valentine's Day. 

I've been wanting a new bag thats suitable for work and every day. W suggested I find something that was big enough to tote around the computer and he'd get it for me as an early V-Day present. 

Enter this beauty



Can we say awesome boyfriend?

Reason #3

The Help

I read this book over the summer, from start to finish in just a few days. It was so moving.

Normally movies based on books I love let me down, so I was prepared for the worse. This time, I loved the movie! 



While it was very moving and entertaining, it was also sad. Knowing if I was born a generation or two earlier, a few states south, I wouldn't have been able to openly have the amazing relationship I do now with the love of my life is insane. It also makes me even more appreciative.



Love him!


: )

Reason #4

Books

Friday after work I went to Joseph Beth and picked up the below reads. 2 out of 3 on sale = JACKPOT.

I already started The Hunger Games.



I love to read so I can't believe it's taken me this long to get this book. I've had friends tell me for months I was missing out, but I didn't think it could be that good.

Boy was I wrong. After seeing the previews I decided to give it a chance and WOW. Nowhere near finished, but so far it's pretty gripping.

I could honestly go on and on, but right now I'd much rather eat, have a glass of wine and enjoy   House Hunters SO I will end with pictures :)



YUM!


Bought Bully Hill Red Wine on the left to drink this weekend. Only $8.99 and delicious



Best Bakery in Cincinnati. Open 24 hours = Yes Please
