Older Woman Chic Magnet!

Hope you are warm and safe this evening. After a week of freezing temps we are in the sixties with rain today. Can't complain at all because I have been checking the news and most of you are already having snow flurries. Brrrr
Doing my best tonight to do a post on my brand new laptop. Yes I am excited I gave in to spending the money and bought me another laptop. It's not the one I wanted but more of what I thought I should spend and compatible for what I use a computer for.
Don't ask me why but I bought a touch screen and at this moment I am trying to type this post on a screen size of about 100 percent. I keep moving my fingers every which way to lower the size to normal but for reasons beyond my comprehension it seems to just get bigger the more I try.
So not sure what the final results of this post will look like. I feel so dumb when it comes to new tech toys. I am still learning the smart phone and have had it forever.
I did manage to download one of Christi's engagement pictures that her and Paul took a few weeks ago. Not sure if I shared with you that their wedding has been postponed until April of next year. The stress of trying to plan a wedding in a short amount of time and then finding that the expense was beyond our wildest imagination's made them change it from Oct to April. At first I was disappointed but did not take long for me to realize that was a wise decision.
Paul is everything that I have been praying for Christi so I feel so blessed that he came back into her life. They dated in high school and now twenty years later they will be married in a few months.
Since I am having so much trouble typing this post I will not keep you much longer. I mainly wanted to let you know I can post again. Well maybe!
I do want to share something really funny with you before I close. Every year we walk in Austin for Juvenile Diabetes on my Kaci's team. This year was a pretty day for the walk and after it was all over we are walking to our cars and these three teenage girls walk up to my ten year old grandson, Bailey, and ask him for his telephone number. I have to tell you the look on my Baileys face was priceless. I don't think I have ever seen him where he was speechless. After a few minutes he found his voice and admitted to the young ladies that he didn't own a phone. I think his response shocked them. They laughed and went on their way. 
The minute we all were inside the car Bailey kept beating himself up for his reply. He kept coming up with things that he thought he should of said besides I don't have a phone. Of course his sister Kaci and her friend were really coming up with some replies they thought he should of used.
Everyone is already laughing so hard in the car and then Bailey says to me, "Grandma Yellow Hair I guess I am just a Older Woman Chic Magnet." Let me tell you I lost it then. I was laughing so hard I had tears in my eyes.
He said, "No grandma it is true! Let me tell you why. A month or so ago we were at the Blake Shelton concert and a older girl came over to where we were sitting and ask mom if she could dance with me."
 Andrea told her she would have to ask him. So she did and they went up near the stage and danced a two step. I was floored hearing this story because I didn't even realize my grandson could two step. hahahaha
Now a month later I am still laughing about this hilarious story. A Older Woman Chic Magnet!
Hopefully I can figure this computer out and enjoy being a blogger again.
Thanks for coming by and checking on me. In case I don't get back here before Thanksgiving I hope you enjoy the day very much and that you share it with friends and family.
Love to all

Your post looks good to me. I think you've mastered that laptop!! I did wonder about the wedding. If you posted about it, I must have missed that post. Love the photo and look forward to hearing all about the festivities.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.


Paula said...

Glad you're back with us, missed you. Cute about your grandson too.

Julia said...

I'm glad you got a new computer. It was about time because I really missed your blog.

Your post looks just fine and it really nice having you back.

It will be so nice having your daughter getting married. They should elope, and use the money for a little trip together. It's ridiculous how much a couple can spend on a wedding. It causes more stress when they have to pay for it.

Your grandson is so cute and funny.

Stay warm, here it's getting pretty cold but I feel so sorry for the people of Buffalo and the huge snow storm and now thawing and roof collapse and flooding pending.


Debby said...

So glad you are back. You will get the hang of it.
Your daughter and her fiancee look so cute and in love.
So funny about your grandson. I like that he said he didn't have a phone. None of my grands do either. Well Mabel got in trouble this fall in kndergarten for having a cell phone. Her uncle gave her his old one that doesn't work. So good to see you posting. Missed you.

Your grandson may be wise beyond his years! lol

Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

Yep, your post is fine. Your settings are within the blog, and not what you see on your screen necessarily. Although, it depends on what you are doing. It can be confusing and exasperating at times. Glad you are up and running again. Congrats to your daughter. A true love story indeed. It certainly isn't wise to go into debt just to get married. I had the the wedding dress and bridesmaids with my first marriage. But with my now husband, we just went to the Justice of the Peace and then out to lunch with our three witnesses afterwards, and just celebrated 20 years. So cute about your grandson. Best wishes, Tammy

Welcome back Maggie with your new toy! I'm glad you can post again because you always make me smile or laugh right out loud! Your Grandson sounds adorable! Tell him to just be himself and one many years to come...he will be thrilled with being a chic magnet! Hey, this old gal thinks he's a cutie! Wait, that sounds creepy...what I mean is I laughed my head off! Have a great Thanksgiving down there...we did have lots of snow here in Ohio but this weekend it's going to warm up and melt it all...for now anyway!

smartcat said...

Everything looks good here. I'm so pleased to see you back in the blog world (blogosphere? blogorama?)
Great story about you grandson.
Personally, I thing April is a much nicer time for a wedding than October.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

That's a beautiful picture of Christi and Paul, Maggie. Love the story about your grandson. So glad to see your post. I'm sure you'll learn your way around your new laptop enough so that you can do what you want to do. I sometimes feel the same way when I get something new in technology.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I always love to hear from you...

JOHN said...

It takes time to get use to a new computer,I always enjoy your post and appriciate when you stop by

Arkansas Patti said...

New computers have such a miserable learning curve. Hang in. I'm just glad you bit the bullet--you have been missed.
Goodness, when did teenagers turn into cougars? Bailey has all the makings of a heart breaker. Too funny. Tell him to just enjoy.
So glad Christi has found "the one." Weddings are horridly expensive. Tell them to take the money and just elope--providing they take you with them.
So good to see you back Maggie.

The Dutchess said...

Thank you so much for your sweet made Miss Moussie very happy!
There's more to come..

Wishing you a lovely weekend xoxo

Dr. Kathy McCoy said...

So good to see your blog post (which looks great!) and hear all your news, Maggie! I'm so happy for Christi (and what a beautiful picture!) and I absolutely love Bailey's comment. Just hilarious! And, apparently, completely true!

Carol Z said...

My day is made when I see that you have posted. The picture is beautiful. Wishes for much happiness. I bit the bullet, too, and got a new computer that has a touch screen and a keyboard. So far I am really liking it, but I don't use it with the touch screen very often.

Olga Hebert said...

The post looks just fine. Glad to see that you are back in the blog saddle and recounting some funny stories.

acorn hollow said...

So glad to see you post again.
Your grandson sounds so cute look out when he is older! Great picture of your daughter. Weddings are very expensive and we did our daughters pretty reasonable.
Have a great day

Just Me Pooh said...

Sweet Maggie your post looks great and I am so happy you have a computer and can post on your blog again. I am also very happy for Christi, Paul and you. What a sweet picture of the two of them. I can certainly understand their reason for putting the wedding off to a later date...weddings are really high dollar. Thanks so much for sharing the "Older Woman Chic Magnet" story. Too funny and cute too. That is what happens with these handsome boys like Bailey. That was sweet of him to dance with the older girl.

It has been raining here for two days, before that we had a day of sunshine and before that a dusting of snow.

It was wonderful to hear from you sweet Maggie. Stay safe and have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Hugs and nose kisses for you and the sweeties from me, Popsy, Chancy, Pooh and Baby Boy.

The post looks perfect. No way to find out you had trouble with the touch screen. Have a lovely week.

Karen Whittal said...
