I am alive...but need your help!

Oh it is nothing serious!! Although I tend to get dramatic about the smallest things. My computer is on the fritz! I spent two hours last night moving photos from it to an external hard drive and I am about halfway done. Yay... I take a LOT of pictures. We recently bought Poot a new Dell laptop when he started his phd program and it is really nice. That is the only type of laptop I have had. I am not going to lie, I am not very computer savy! However, I am debating on whether or not I should get one of these:

This is where I need your help!! What are your thoughts? Do you own a Mac? What are the pros and cons? Is it easy to transfer my pictures, etc off my old laptop to a Mac? Told you I don't know much:)Any suggestions would be so helpful!!

I did purchase one of these this weekend:

I love it!!

And the photos/instructions for my Ripple Afghan Tutorial are ready to go! I had planned on doing that last night but my computer would not have it and Poot was using his for school work (I guess that is more important...Ha). So tonight I am hoping I can steal his computer for a few and upload it.
In the meantime here is some inspiration to ger you ready to start your ripple afghan:




Oh and if you haven't checked out Jamie's blog this week go there now!. She is having giveaways all week for MS Awareness week. She is such an inspiration and I am so thankful to call her a friend!

Hope everyone is having a good week!
XOXO
