    ok so i wasnt sure how to word that but here is the problem.

    I set a date in my calendar on my iphone and when i connect it to sync to my macbook it gets transfered two hours late. I used to live in las vegas where we WERE on a different time zone but now i am back in houston.

    the alarms / reminders go off correct on my iphone but they are all two hours late on my macbook.

    This sounds like a timezone issue, since Vegas & Houston are two timezones apart.

    There are two place on the iPhone to set the timezone. One under Settings -> Mail, Contacts, Calendars and the other under General -> Date & Time (for the latter in order to set the timezone you have to turn OFF Set Automatically).

    Then make sure your MacBook has the timezone set correctly (can't help you there).
