In recent years my mother has chosen to give my sister and I money for Christmas (in addition to other smaller gifts). This year I decided on my gift a little earlier. I took the plunge and bought a Canon Rebel EOS Rebel T3.
I found a great deal at Best Buy on Black Friday that also bundled the camera with the telephoto lens. I have been thinking about getting a DSLR for a long time now, and I’m glad I finally took the plunge.
I have been playing with my new toy for the past few days and having a blast doing it. I guess when you get older, toys just get more expensive! After the new year, I am going to sign up for a photography workshop to get to know my new camera better and take advantage of all of the cool things I can do with it.
I am also excited that we are finally checking items off the massive to do list for our house. This morning the plumber will be here to install the new sink and toilet in the boys’ bathroom, so we no longer have to share ours!
The floor is done in the room, and the painting has been started. I also had someone in yesterday to measure the windows for roman shades for the den and boys’ room. I am so glad I ran into this women in our local fabric store! Instead of spending a ton of money at a store,
I am having her make them for us to our exact specs with the fabric of our choice. Her prices were very reasonable, and I would much rather give my business locally to her rather than a behemoth company!
This weekend is Christmas by the Sea in our town. All of the decorations are up on the town green and the giant light tree will be lit on Saturday night. We are headed down with the boys and some of our friends and their kids. I can’t wait! Then we have the Christmas parade on Sunday to finish out the weekend. Love the holiday season!
Even though they probably won’t be done until around Christmas, I am so excited that the room will be done then!
