I GOT IT!!! and Now I have buyers remorse... ever had that?

Well.. let's just say.. I didn't go and buy it myself... I couldn't swallow the price... and hubby was getting upset with me.. so he decided yesterday to pack up all the kids and take a "ride"... He gave me a chance to catch up on housework.. something I desperately needed to do.. and came home with THIS... which is 2xs BETTER than the one I really wanted... and 50% MORE than the one I wanted...



This beauty is a perfect fit into my hands... and the best part.. I have three lenses for it! My other two lenses from my 35mm fit perfectly on it... It has rained here all day.. so I didn't get to go out and take pics.. but I did take a few inside ones.. and was VERY PLEASED!! We made sure we got the 4 year service plan that covers ANYTHING that goes wrong.. even if I drop it!

So be prepared!! Take Cover..!! I will have pictures galore ( if that's possible.. since I have a picture for every post now!!)!

And thank you for all your kind words in telling me to get it!! If it weren't for hubby I'd still be hmming and wondering if I should!! He's the BEST!

Hi, I've been reading your blog for a couple of weeks but decided to comment today when I saw your new camera. Yipeee, skipppy, for you. I just got a new Canon Digital XTI but a I have just one lens for it, I'm wanting a telephoto one but will have to save up for that!Would you mind if I put a link to your blog on my blog? Also, if you get a chance, read some of mine and comment. I just started and would love some positive reinforcement. P.S. I love Flip Flops, I have about 10 pair! https://sheilahb.blogspot.com

Hey Southern Gal in the HOUSE!! O I had to just say that! LOL Yeah I been representing the South pretty good with Southern Recipes! HMMM I should start with some Korean ONES??? In honor of the MIL and Hubs????

I had to come back over and drool over your Camera!

Cris said...

Oh wow! I am SOOooooo jealous! LOL!

I have been thinking about getting a new camera too. I would really like to get an SLR. The camera I have doesn't take very good pictures in low light and for pictures that are far away and I hear an SLR is something that I would need for that. But like you I have a hard time swallowing the price and that is the only thing that is holding me back.

Congratulations on the new camera, you definitely deserve it and I cannot wait to see all of the cool pictures that you get to now take. ;D
