My Favorite New Toy

I waited in line for 30 minutes outside of Best Buy's pre-grand opening.  I made a bee-line for the cameras.  Spent another 30 minutes getting out the door with my new favorite toy.  Which I got on sale, thank you very much 2 hour one time only sale.  Here is the big reveal...

just noticed i'm not wearing my wedding ring here.  i don't wear them at home for risk of banging them around while i'm washing the dishes or doing laundry.  i should have done my nails.  yuck.




Isn't it just lovely?!  I'm still a super newbie with these SLR cameras, so please be patient with my photos.  We're attending my friend's wedding this afternoon and my other friend's birthday party tonight.  Then the hubs is dirt bike riding tomorrow and Monday we're with friends and family.  SO... that means lots of new photos.  Yipee! 

Have a great weekend everyone!!!
