Party like it's 1999

Tonight is my bachelorette party!

My sisters have planned a lovely evening, accompanied by some of my favorite people, spent in Orlando, in an amazing hotel that has access to a world class restaurant and lots of lovely beverage establishments, without the need for a car.

This will be a girls night out, and something I haven't done before.

I'm very excited!

Camera Woes - from my blog

September 22

Camera Woes

We really want to get a new camera, but I've been on the fence for a while now - unable to determine what I want. Tonight, I figured out the problem...

In a perfect world, I’d get the D90, unfortunately we’d still need to eventually get other stuff for it.

I am sure I’ll be happy with the D80 – If not there’s always ebay J

So if I were to make a wish list for everything I think we’d need (Stuff that I had before Shaun took our last set up) – These are the things that I’d get – In order of importance.

1 – 699.98 – The camera: The Nikon D80 & a lens: 18-55mm basic lens with vibration reduction for sharp focus -

2 – 184.88 – Not the highest end flash, but not the lowest end either -

3 - 89.99 – High Speed Memory card – necessary for fast focusing – large capacity – cause well - we will take a lot of pictures -

4 - 63.50 – Nikon backpack case – This is the only type of case I would buy – I was worried Nikon wouldn’t have one. – Whew! -

5 - 109.99 - 50mm lens – necessary for great indoor shots of people (esp kids) this is the lens that Rusty uses indoors -

6 - 219.88 -55-200 Vibration Reduction Lens – Nice zoom – includes vibration reduction for the all important sharp focus. -

7 - 13.59 – Digital Field Guide -

8 - 33.34 – 52mm 3 pc filter kit – protects and enhances remaining three lenses -

9 - 99.95 – Macro lens – for taking food photos – also Long zoom – think the red barn picture – amazing lens for the price -

10 - 22.54 – 58mm circular polarizer – must have for above lens (Protection and polarization)-

11 - 134.88 – Battery back up system – uses camera batteries or AA batteries in a pinch, gives camera ability to show us battery life -

12 - 36.14 – Extra battery – Use in battery back up system instead of AA batteries – Lasts longer -

See why I’ve been on the fence so long.

When stressed - Bake

September 13

When stressed - Bake

So yeah, I'm still stressed. Much better today than the rest of the week. For several different reasons, this week was hard for me. I'm glad it is over.

Here, have a brownie.

Don't worry, I didn't forget about the Thursday 13 this week, just haven't had a chance. Maybe tonight.
