My New Coach & A New Mac Book For a Special Girl!

I love shopping so this event is something I can always participate in. Sunday Shopping Secrets is hosted by another big shopper like me, Anita at Please be sure to visit her blog, find out what she bought this week and then go visit everybody else on her list and see what they have to show.
I already scheduled a post before I left home for Chicago but I went shopping downtown with my sister yesterday and I wanted to show you the favorite item that I bought. Here it is, a Coach evening bag. It's a new item that was just put out for display in the store yesterday.
I love the soft leather and the color and size is just perfect for my evening parties and dinners. I also fell in love with the strap, just the right length.
Here is a closer view. You can click to enlarge to see an even closer view.
Love how it has zipped extra compartments on both sides.
And now for my originally scheduled post.........

I apologize for posting this today even if the buying actually occurred about 3 weeks ago. I have been meaning to post it but just never had a chance. Better late than never, isn't it?

One evening, the phone rang at home and it was my granddaughter AJ calling from Florida, who wanted to talk to John. Ok, being her grandma, I know her very well. When she asks for John, that means she wants something she knows she cannot get from me. LOL!

Sure enough, she asked if he would buy her a MAC laptop. And I don't think I have ever heard John say "No" to her so of course, the moment we flew in to FL, we went staright to pick her up from school and then went straight to the Mac store to look at computers. We bought what we thought would be good for her, had an additional memory and hard drive put in and here she is with her big smile while waiting for them to install everything we added.
It's ready!
Here is the Mac expert giving her some instructions.
She could not wait till we got home to put the laptop in the computer bag that we bought for her so we had to stop in the middle of the mall for her to put it all together.
Just look at that happy and contented smile.:-) Doesn't she look like a young business woman?
The next day, we went to the airport to fly to West Palm in preparation of our Caribbean cruise. Of course, AJ was anxious to try her computer at the airport.
Surfing the web so seriously!
At the hotel lobby, we sat across each other with our own laptops and decided to download Skype. It's amazing how fast kids pick up on computers. She's never owned a Mac before but she downloaded and set up everything all by herself. They call her "little lola" or "little Christine" for a reason, I guess.:-)
I did the same thing and then, all of a sudden we both see each other's face on our screens. LOL! How cool is that! Now she makes a video call to me whenever she wants to see and talk to me. We live 15 hrs. drive away from each other but it's so nice to feel so close.Thanks Anita for this exciting new event! I enjoy sharing my shopping experience and items with y'all! I hope you enjoy seeing them too.
