Lookey What I Can Do!

Shauna at Trying to Stay Calm posted a sweet post about how to make those hearts.

You know.... ♥♥these ones!!♥♥

Here I am, just about computer illiterate, I know how to blog and sort of use Word. So sad all the time because people do such cool things with a computer and keyboard. No one wants to learn me how.

Finally someone is going to teach me how to show my love out loud on the internet!

Not so fast, Whit.

She only showed how to make them on a keyboard with a number pad.

*tearing up* But I have a laptop!!

I thought about commiting bloggy suicide (no I didn't). I gave up all hope. Knew I could never love a comment.

I was wrong!

Shauna emailed me and told me how to do it on a laptop. So here it is. I know I know, the masses are squirming at the edge of their seat in anticipation.

Okay, for those of you with a laptop, find the blue Fn key. Then find the Alt key. Press them both down then press your blue 3. Mine is on the letter "L".

Fn+Alt+L= ♥

For those of you who are lucky enough to have a key pad, you hold down alt and the 3 on the key pad.

For some reason this has really excited me. I'm in a super good mood. See... I'm very easy to entertain and please.

you just have to surprise me with something from my lusting list 2 posts down to bring me true happiness. Kidding! sort of....

Leave a heart at the end of your comment

X♥X♥X♥ (see.... so much more personal and people can figure it out w/o having to guess what that darn O means.

Look at all the hearts!

Hey, do you want me to make reservations for Friday? I'm thinking that number up there isn't accurate. I'm not sure how many people will be coming, but I'm thinking maybe 15 or so.

Shawn and Michelle said...

Kristina that would be great. Maybe you could mention on your post tomorrow that those who are coming come and vote on my poll then we'll have a more accurate number?

FIFTEEN???? But I was going to bring cupcakes that I just made for everyone. And fifteen is how many I made because I like big ones. (That's what she said.... haha)
Dangit. How can you be so popular?? Haha.
And I don't do hearts. Sorry.

Mina said...

3 I'm so jealous, cause all I get with fn+alt+L is 3

33333. Stupid mac. Actually I love my mac. Or maybe that's "I 3 my mac". I just don't 3 it right now very much.

3, mina

I totally ♥ you. I ♥ that I will get to meet you friday. Until then... ♥loves!♥

the letter Bee said...

How cute!

So whose name will the reservation be under for Friday? Is Sampan actually in the mall or is it a stand alone restaurant that is east of the mall?

Whitney R said...

If only I knew. Kristina knows where it is. Since she'll be calling... maybe it will be under her name? I'll find out.. then let everyone know in an official post tomorrow

Kayleigh said...

Haha, Mina's comment made me laugh.

♥ .....

...HOLY CRAP! ♥

Whoa. That is so going to get used a lot by me. Probably too much. Thanks for the tip, Whitney!!! Woohoo!

*MARY* said...

CRUDMUFFIN! I'm on my laptop right now, my ALTless laptop, my kids like to pull the keys off.

Brigitte said...

I too am laughing at Mina's comment. hehehe

Wait a minute... I have a Mac too....

£....

dang. I alt+3 and all I get is £. What the heck?!?! I guess I'll have to try upstairs on the regular old PC.

And clue on getting the line through the words? Like someone is crossing it out? I really want to do that.

Saw some Mac users having difficulty. Looks like that symbol is not as easily generated, but I did find a way: http://marketwall.com/help/mac_heart.
