Happy Birthday to me.

Thursday was, in Emmi's words, "my happy birthday." I celebrated with first a pre-lunch lunch with Anita, then lunch with Sheri. It was the first time Sheri and I have been together sans kiddos (well, except for that little sweety Violet, she came along. But she doesn't run circles yet or ask if we can leave now every three minutes.) in a long time. We got to talk about non-kiddie things and laugh a lot. It was good times. Later that day, Kenny came home with a surprise for me.


A cake.




And a gift card (because he wasn't sure if I was leaning towards Nikon or Canon) to get the camera I wanted. Combined with the birthday money from his mom and a gift card from my parents, I also got the lens I wanted, too! Yesterday, I finally found time to go get my new toy. I was actually really leaning towards the Canon. It got better reviews, and there are some features I like better. But I finally decided it didn't make much sense to start completely over with a new brand. I can use my accessories from my film SLR on the digital, I just might need to manually focus a few lenses. No biggie.

I spent the rest of the day torturing Kenny, the dogs, and even a few flowers in the backyard.





Now I am just waiting on my kids to come home, so I can torture them, too.

Well, I have had a film Nikon SLR for years. I got one back in college. Kenny even has blackroom equipment, so we used to develop our own film. But I finally joined the DIGITAL SLR Gang! Oh hell. I kid you not, I took over 300 pics in about fifteen minutes. No more film to buy and develop...well, I won't say no more. I still love film, but now I can get good pics without using film.

Sounds like your birthday was great! I bought the Hubs a digital SLR for his wedding present...I'm embarrassed to say we don't know how to use it properly lol...I think we need an additional lens.

I got the Nikon D60, after much debate. I really wanted the 90, but well, I really didn't have $1500.
