~ it's all in a name ~

I was so sad last week.
I was trying to post to my blog
and all the sudden my little laptop...
died. It totally. kicked. the. bucket.

I was so bummed and day by day - I kept getting behind with my
Brave Girl's assignments - I had no idea what to do.

My sweet husband came home from work and said - let's go to Costco!
We went and we picked me (us) out a new laptop and
I lof her!

As you know, I love to name possessions.
I posted to Facebook I was trying to figure out a name for my new laptop...

I got SO Many good ideas - most of my possessions are female... I don't know why, they just are.

For example:

We have 3 chickens -
Audrey Hepburn (Black and White)
Elizabeth Taylor (Black and White)
& Maureen O'Hara (Rhode Island Red)

My pretty blue coffee cup named Birdy.

My washer and dryer - Kim and Trixie.

I thought and thought
and couldn't come up with something fun -

went to check my Facebook
and there were so many fun suggestions!

My friends love me!
I wanted it to be a cool name.

Something a bit smart.

maybe even genius.

yet cute and quirky!
And there it was ... the suggestion from one of my High School friends - Danica.
She suggested I name her Qwerty.

At first I was like so fun! then I thought - where in the world did she get that name?

So I asked her -

She reminded me it is the first six letters on the top row of the keyboard!
Genius, right?
One of the suggestions from a friend of mine was Scarlett.
Immediately when I heard that suggestion I remembered that I
had never named my sweet little cell phone (yet another gift from my sweet husband)

So also, please meet Scarlett.
I've had her for almost a year and lof her! She's so good to me.
So there you have it - me and my silly naming things again...

Got any cool names?

So glad you asked silly girl! What a cute idea~naming your precious goods! I especially love your chickens names. I haven't named anything in a long time. Think it's a perfect idea, thankyouvery much! Actually, there is a blog post I have been rolling around in my head...... about words. I do love made-up words.....always on the look out. Your posts are so fun and such joy Sami! It is good to meet you and check in on you sweet girl. Life is good:) XO
