I'm So Excited!

I'm so excited and I just can't hide it!  I'm about to lose control and I think I like it! [[Does a little dance in my desk chair!]]

Sorry, just had to channel the Pointer Sisters for a minute because, after saving since Christmas, I am now the proud owner of 

A Canon Rebel T3i DSLR camera! 

After both of my point and shoots died late last year, my Dad was kind enough to loan me his Canon Powershot.  While it was much much nicer than my other cameras, I had been drooling over the thought of getting a DSLR ever since. Especially when I saw how nice the photos can be.

So when I saw Costco was having a sale, well at least as much of a sale as Costco has, I made my purchase.  I was able to get the camera body with 2 lenses, a carrying case, SD card and several other cools accessories.

It is going to be quite a bit of a learning curve but here's hoping I am a quick learner!

Here is one of the first pics I snapped in our garden. We have our first baby tomato! D is so happy since this is on a tomato plant he has claimed as his. I am still marveling at the detail. 


  1. I am sooo jealous! I'd love to have that camera. Congrats!

    Also, I'm stopping by to let you know that I nominated you for the Sunshine Blog Award :)
