I did it!

I did it, I did it, I did it!
I took the plunge and bought myself a big girl camera!
My face is flushed and my hands are shaking, but I did it, I pushed the "Place Order Now" button at B and H's website. 

Yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Oh.... my.... goodness.....

I thought and I thought.

I compared and contrasted.
I hemmed and I hawed.

I thought about the trips that I have planned.
I thought of Spring Break in New York
and oooooh I wanted that camera.

I even paid a few extra dollars for one day shipping.
I never do that!
I won't order anything from Amazon unless I'm over the 25 dollar limit for free shipping.
I usually figure that there's nothing that I can't wait a few extra days for.
But (channeling Veruca Salt)  I wanted it NOW!


It comes tomorrow!!!!
(That's as close to now as I could get.)

Now if there are no noticeable differences in the pictures that I post from here on out....
hmmmmm... just don't tell me.
I don't want to know.

Whoopiee!!! What a fun present. Of course, I'm jealous. I happened across a display of cameras at Sam's tonight. Dad asked what I was doing and I just told him "dreaming". It's good you'll have it when you come visiting.

Woohoo!!! Yaay for Canon DSLR! Which one is it? I'm so excited for you! Once you get the hang of it, you won't use another! It happened to me, all the pictures I take nowadays are made with the Big Guy. I'm taking him out today, I'm going to Bruges today, meet my family in the afternoon and a two hour photo walk with the Big Guy in the morning! I'm so looking forward to this!!
