Ughhh and WOW!

It's official. I have my first cold in three years. I am lucky to have a pretty good immune system, but once it gets knocked down--it's down for the count. So what that means is I can expect at least two or three more colds in the next few months. I guess I should be thankful I didn't get sick a few months ago or I'd really be screwed.

On a much more exciting note, hubby surprised me with a present when he arrived home on Saturday. A NEW CAMERA!! Now it isn't a fancy DSLR like I was looking at, but it is a high end point and shoot and is a solid camera that many professionals carry when they don't want to lug around their heavy duty equipment. Take a look at this sexy beast!













I'm really looking forward to learning the ins and outs of this camera and maybe by the time the Black Tie warranty runs out in four years, I'll have learned how to shoot in manual mode. Then I'll consider getting a DSLR. I like the fact that it takes great pics but doesn't weigh 30 pounds and if I hand the camera to Grandma and ask her to take a picture she won't faint from confusion.

I took a few pictures of me today with my new camera so you could see just how crappy I'm feeling. BUT I nearly had a hernia when I looked at how good of pictures my new camera took!!! Trust me y'all. You would be scared...

That camera is hawt! I just got a new camera for Christmas myself and the honeymoon still isn't over... *swoon* See:

Me: "OMG. If I hit the little flower doo-dad thingy (the macro button) and do a headstand while zooming in on this baby spoon, it would be so artistic!!"

two minutes later

"OMG. The kidlet is smiling! *click* "

I'm out of control.

Hope you kick this cold's butt right quick...and I expect to see some fab new pics up here soon... :)
