Many of you already know our wedding anniversary is a coming up this Wednesday August 31, 2016  will be our 28th wedding anniversary and My hubby got me a gift ~ It's so over the top .

Let me just show you  ( OMG!) 

My New MAC from hubby for our 28th Anniversary

He  just walked in  from work  last week  of course a couple days before my Glitter Queens retreat  and hooked it up right on our dinning room table ( he knows me to well~  I need  time to learn it  before it heads down stairs in my office  LOL!) 

It's so amazing  and guess what ???   I even made my 1st video on it~ I know right ? AWESOME!   Well not an "official "video but  a practice one LOL! but still  pretty awesome  ! 

Amazing  cause I always thought I was  pretty basic in my editing skills for my videos  well come to find out, I am pretty advanced ~ Go figure ~ LOL!

That seriously makes me laugh  since  I have been making my stamping videos  for over 9 years now I  sure hope I've moved up a little from basic but I guess I just never really thought of it  until  now … it's just makes me laugh .

My stamping  friends welcomed me to the "dark " side LOL!

 Personally I thought I was  the last one to get a Mac . I didn't think it was so "Dark" any more to switch over since I thought everyone has a Mac~ but what do I know LOL! 

Yes hubby and I will be getting our upgrade in Sept for the new I phone as well (  at least that's the plan ) we have always been Android users for our phones .

I've just been playing on it here and there since  there has been so much going on I haven't been able to get in for any classes  yet BUT I can say I know I  will love it  more than I already do. It really is amazing !

So needless to say I have a few classes in my future  with my new toy and Hubby  really knows  how to make me step out of my comfort zone ( in a good way )~ actually I've been  talking with him about  getting a Mac  and well he just surprised me  and BOY was it a surprise . He even got me the  Track pad ( AMAZING! ) .

1 thing I know about my man is he ALWAYS does things in a BIG way.

Thank you Honey ~Thank you for being mine  and putting up with me for 28 years . I love you !
