Last week

We got a new toy! Our point and shoot became a victim of sand while on vacation so we took the opportunity to upgrade. We are now the proud owners of a Digital Canon Rebel T1i. We also bought a 50mm lense to go with it and can I just's so pretty! I can't wait to use it!

Last week was one of those crazy ones with all sorts of big and little things happening. Here's just a few events we went through last week....

* Lost my keys which is very unlike me (I did find them, after two days!)
* Celebrated 10 year Anniversary (with prime rib....yum!)
* Bought new SLR camera (just need to figure out how to use it now)
* Backed into stroller (no children were harmed in the making of this incident only one wheel)
* Burnt out 15 yr old hand mixer while making icing for my cake class (icing was shortening based and tasted disgusting by the way)

What fun, annoying, complicated, stressful, wonderful, eventful things happened to you last week? Please share!

You will LOVE your nifty-fifty! All the shots you will get of your bambino will be so adorable. Have fun with your new toy!

Crazy-making would be finding that the kiddo will need significant work on her eyes to have completely mediocre vision as she grows and that my latest co-worker at the gallery will be someone with a rep for drama.

Above average awesome would be the invitation to sell my work in a local commercial gallery! Yay!

I love my Rebel but yeah the jump-right-in factor is low. My pics are improving as I work myself through the tutorials for it!

I so connect! This week, I fell off a log and ruined my camera, and twisted my leg. Then I have either lost or mislaid 56.00 that is not mine. I Knew it was a bad idea to let me hold on to that! And my husband was laid off for a few weeks. ;-/

but I also got to visit my daughter for a whole week. She is grown and is a animation artist for major gaming co in Washington. And I am enjoying the best sunny weather here on the Oregon coast .
Waiting now for a new camera and I too can not wait to try it out!!
