My shiny new laptop

You always hear about crazy good things happening to people, but it's never you, right? Me too, until a few weeks ago when I got a tweet from HP Canada about my laptop. I tweeted something about how I would blog more if my laptop wasn't broken. The power cord on my little Dell laptop has been giving me trouble. It's actually the second one we've had for that computer because the first one didn't work either. Often I blog while lying in bed after my kids are in bed. I could go downstairs to where our desktop is but most nights I just want my comfy clothes and my bed, you know?

Well anyway, HP Canada offered me a new laptop. No strings attached, just here, have a new laptop. I was stunned. I didn't even follow them on Twitter when this happened. But they meant it. A few days later I was ripping into a box containing this beauty. It's a Chromebook 14 (not an affiliate link) and I love it! I love the colour, I love how the keys feel, I love how easy it was to set up, and how easy it is to use. My only complaint is that the power button is where the delete key was on my other laptop so I've turned it off a few times by mistake. But wow, they gave me a laptop, for free, for no reason. Isn't that amazing?!

Setting it up.
And you bet I'm doing almost all of my blogging from the new laptop. I do almost everything from the laptop now. It's so nice to have a laptop that works and is light and pretty and MINE!

So pretty.
Sometimes good things happen and this was a pretty awesome! Sometimes companies do really cool things like give away laptops on social media for no reason. So a BIG GINORMOUS thank you to HP Canada for my new laptop. I love it!

Disclaimer: I was sent a Chromebook 14 but not asked to post about it or anything else. Just, here's a laptop. Isn't that awesome?!
