Out of Space... Add a disk!

I have a lenovo Thinkpad T540p. This laptop has a Samsung 256GB SSD drive.  This drive ran out of space long ago.  The good thing is, you can add a disk to the T540p.  I went to lenovo's site and ordered:

After installing the drive, I had to figure out how to carve up the new space.  There are probably many ways to do this, but I knew I wanted to:
  • Add more space to the /dev/fedora/root LV.
  • Keep the new, slower disk in a separate VG.  I didn't want any LV's to span these two disks.
