Computer…. Crash…

What happens when you finally get that fancy shmancy camera you’ve been saving up for and download all the software onto your computer without cleaning out the old files…..


You guessed it…

My computer crashed!… kinda…

On my computer I had every single picture (both good and bad) that I’ve taken since 1999.

My husband always told me I needed to get an external hard drive to transfer all those pictures.

Did I do it??

Of course not!

So me, my computer, and my blog have been out of commission the past few days!

I felt like I was preforming open heart surgery on my computer… carefully cleaning out all the old stuff so it can run like new again… sorta…

After a few trips to the Mac store and transferring most of my files to an external hard drive… my trusty Mac Book runs like new again!

And most importantly… I can show you the things my new camera can do…

Like take pictures of this….


And this….


And finally…. this…


And to bore you even more….

Here’s my backyard…


And because I know you’re trying not to fall asleep during this post… here are some snap shots of my casa…




Okay…. that’s it… I promise!

Have a great weekend folks 😉

    Glad you got it all fixed. We got an external hard drive a while ago and it really did free up a ton of space.

    I love that photo of your daughter and dog. It’s like you interrupted them and they’re not too happy about it.

    I recently got a new camera too and I am SO excited about it!!! Now, I just have to figure it out : )

    Love the picture of your little one and the puppy. That is such a sweet relationship. Two innocents.

    The snapshots are great!

    Lovely pictures! What kind of camera did you get? I’ve been wanting to save up for a new one!

    Sorry about the computer crashing though; that is always annoying!

      So glad you like the pics!

      I got a Canon Rebel Xsi and got the 50mm f1.4 lens.

      I highly suggest getting a new camera in time for the arrival of your baby girl. I wish we would’ve gotten this camera sooner!

      What great about it is not only the clarity and sharpness of the pictures, but the shutter speed allows you to capture some great moments of a baby that you can’t always get with a point and shoot! Its well worth the money to get all those precious pics of your little one. 🙂

    Oh no! Glad you’re a MAC surgeon! 😉

    Your baby girl is adorable, she makes me smile! Your casa is gorgeous, as well!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Seriously, your pictures of Marin DO NOT help with birth control. It makes me want a baby as cute as her! I so wish I could meet you guys.

    oh my gosh I hope my baby (when i have one) is even HALF as cute as Marin! i teared up a little at how beautiful she is 🙂 also – that thing with the Texas license plate – did you make it? and if so, how? i have about 7 at my house that i want to use somehow!

    The photos are gorgeous!

    And I mean this is a non-stalker-esque kind of way, but I totally want to see the rest of your house!

    Ugh, I know that feeling, but it happened to us with my husband’s work. He backs stuff up all the time, but there were a few pieces of artwork he had not transfered over yet and they are gone…

    Those cheeks…too cute!
