(excuse the coupons, but hey, It was Sunday. That's what I do)
One reason for the lack of blogging is we've either been traveling or had a revolving door of company. Last week, our
And because we had 4 kids hopped up on cider with us, we were going to let Hubs finish paying before Nugget knocked down the entire display of caramels. And because I had on my skinny jeans and can't fit anything other than my booty in my pockets, I handed him our camera. And because Hubs was juggling all of the above, he dropped my camera.
Bless the little Coolpix's shutter, the only thing I really liked about it was that I could slip it in my back pocket (depending on the pants). So this raised the question. Spend $200 on the same camera I don't love, or take this as an opportunity to upgrade? I consulted my financial advisor and camera guru in Alaska, and the answer was simple. UPGRADE.
I stopped by the camera shop to confirm my hopes/fears that it would cost more to fix than replace, then I was taking the kids back to the orchard to pick apples. I called C to get her thoughts and she said she'd start googling. 45 minutes later, she called me all excited about what I HAD to get.
I dropped the kids back at the house, consulted with Hubs, and he said to go back up to the store, sans kids, and figure out what I wanted.
Less than an hour later, I called Hubs to tell him the "deal" I selected and he said, "Ok, Merry Christmas!"
Woo to the hoo! Later, while I was putting the kids to bed, he wrapped it all up and we opened it together. I.LOVE.THIS.CAMERA. Apologies to friends on Facebook. If you thought I posted a bunch of picture before, you ain't seen nothin' yet!
Here's a sample from the album I like to call, "I have no idea what I'm doing!"
