A very special package came yesterday...
Never have I wanted something for so long before actually purchasing it. I've been wanting a DSLR for over a year and finally (finally!) it's in my hot little hands. Mike took a look at our MacBook and my new camera and declared, "We're yuppies. All we need is a nice car and iPhones."
I insist that we're yippies. Yuppie plus hippie = yippie. Naturally.
I finally buckled down and made the purchase after poring over Consumer Reports, realizing I had enough money in my "business" bank account, and the upcoming Huge Road Trip of 2009. I couldn't be more thrilled. I plan on curling up with the manual at night and going to Lake Erie tomorrow to practice.
This whole no-work-for-three-weeks is turning out to be fabulous. My first day was spent picking up free Chipotle, hanging out with my sister, watching both My Sister's Keeper (I cannot see Cameron Diaz as a mother. I'm sorry.) AND the new Harry Potter (I want all of Hermione's cardigans.). Sigh. So much better than being chained to a cubicle.
Also, as you can see, I attempted to cut bangs for myself. I have an issue with my hair. I cannot just leave well enough alone. I tend to cut bangs for myself at random times. And even cut my hair if I get the urge.
