case in point

Greeting from sunny and hot Bonita Springs, Florida!

L'il E and I are chilling out at Nana and Papa's for the week (we're loving the heat!) but that doesn't mean I'm on vacation from blogging. I just had to bring my MacBook Air with me and that meant sewing a padded case for my prized possession. Fortunately I found a really simple pattern in one of my fave sewing books One-Yard Wonders: 101 Sewing Projects"" and I had some leftover fabric (bonus!) from homemade Christmas gifts. It had to be unisex so the Hubs could carry it as well, so I went with a grey exterior and a bright pink interior for a pop of colour.

Check it out! Can you tell I'm proud of my creation?

i love my MacBook Air

As a final big purchase before the baby's arrival the Hubs and I decided to invest in a little MacBook Air (best decision ever!).

It's so light and portable I have it with me all over the house and as soon as I'm more mobile I'll be able to blog/email/facebook on the run.

Now that we have little Ethan I can play him little lullaby-es while I reply to emails and catch up on my blog reading.

If you're looking for something portable but don't want to go to the land of the tablet get a MacBook Air!
