Oh Happy Day!!

I have fretted over my camera decision for a couple of weeks now. I was able to sell everything I put on Eb@y for a great price, and am now hooked on that. I have been cleaning out my closet and the boys'. You wouldn't believe the stuff I'm pulling out to sell!! I actually went to the camera shop Saturday because it was a tax-free weekend. I decided to go on and buy the camera I wanted, even if I didn't have ALL the money yet ;) I went in wanting either a Canon or a Nikon. When the lady saw that I had a Pentax, she talked me into getting a brand new body that just came out (K7) I let her talk me into it and paid for it, even though it wouldn't be in until this week. I have fretted over that decision for days! I dream about it, toss and turn, wake up thinking about it. Finally, I decided that I was not at peace with the decision I had made, and I wanted to change my mind. I went today and walked out with a Nikon D90. I am tickled pink!! What a difference a couple of years makes in digital cameras!! Of course, I'll have to add all my accessories later, but that's ok...I have a closet full of stuff to sell!!!!

Here are a few pictures I took this evening about 7:00. My old camera would never have been able to find enough light to make these come out. I LOVE it!!!

By the way, see the deer in the yard? Guess what time of the year it's about to be ;)






Can you tell he's trying to elbow Cade in the chest? Cade doesn't care, he's a beast!
I know you're all going to feel real sorry for me, but I'm off to the beach again tomorrow! This time with some other moms from Braden's baseball team! NO KIDS ALLOWED!!!! We cheered and bused them all season long, and now it's our turn to relax!! I'm dropping the boys off at school and taking off!!! My number one reason I'm so excited is that I'll be able to start another book in the series I'm addicted to:
I have read 1-4 in a matter of a couple of weeks and can't wait to start #5!! I already have a hold on 7 &8 at the library!!!
Have a great weekend!!!!

Congrat on the new camera. I keep dreaming about a new one. Maybe in a few months.

Have fun at the beach. I am very jealous that you get to have some girlfriend time without kids. Enjoy your books.

First off...those are the best books!!!!! Read them all and absolutely love James Patterson!!!! Have you read Andrew Gross...he wrote a few with Patterson and now writes on his own...very similar styles.

I love the new camera!!!!! Pics look great! I have to ask though because I've been wanting to do ebay for a while...it seems so confusing though. How do you figure out how much to charge for shipping and what not....it seems so difficult so I'm scared to even try it.

Jennifer,
That is the camera I have, and I LOVE it! So, glad you decided to go Nikon!
I have been taking Christi Rawsii's class, and I have learned a ton! It is a great camera to shoot in full manual with! Enjoy!

Oh your busy school year is about to begin! You really do stay so so busy. I am praying for lots of quiet moments for yourself this year!

Awesome about the camera!

I did see the deer, and having been married to a hunter at one time, knew exactly what it was! lol

I have been tempted to do ebay, but in the end have decided it would take more time than I have and the money wouldn't be worth the stress. I think about it, though!

have fun at the beach!
