Someone Bought A New Camera (Yeah That Would Be Me)


Remember when I went to Disney a few weeks ago? While we were in the airport my Nikon died on me. Literally right before we were about to board. I brought it  to someone to get fixed and he told me it wasn’t really worth it since the equipment was fairly old. So I listened and have been using a regular camera for personal and professional use. The problem is when I go to cover events… I feel so unprofessional whipping out my little Canon. It’s a great camera – don’t get me wrong. But nothing compares to an SLR.


While on Twitter, I came across this blog and that was all I needed to see. Besides making some of the most scrumptious recipes on the net, ‘My Baking Addictions’ pictures were BEAUTIFUL! Be sure to check them out!!!! I did a quick search and found out she uses a Canon EOS Rebel XSi.

I yanked Bill into the room and checked out some reviews on CNET. Within the hour, Miss Impulse Shopper snagged herself a Canon. I switched teams! This certainly is the month for it. I left Blackberry and now Nikon. What is the world coming to?!


Needless to say, I haven’t had a chance to actually take some nice shots. I just tested it out on the kids to make sure all the bells and whistles were in order! An early Mother’s Day, Birthday, Anniversary and Christmas present all wrapped into one? That’s ok! I desperately needed an SLR for work. It all will work out in the end!

    Canon rocks. 🙂 You will be very happy, I promise! Loving the new pics already! 😀

  4. Oh, oh, oh!! If you like the pics on mybakingaddiction, you should also check out http://www.bakerella.com/ The lady who runs it not only inspires me to make (and eat) many cakes, she makes me want to take good photographs. Her pics are awesome. I do not have a decent camera at the moment, though. I do want to get one.

  5. Oh, and also, toy storage… I don't know, we have various tubs, stacking boxes, a bit wooden toybox, shelves, hanging baskets, you name it. Toys are still everywhere! I'm giving up worrying about it until they are older, lol.
