What a Day!

Yesterday was a very busy day. I was up and at 'em by 6:00AM in order to get to Converse for the two classes that I am taking as I continue to work toward my Masters in Educational Leadership. The classes are only for 4 weeks, but it is going to require a lot of discipline on my part so I don't let all of the assignments pile up on me.

After class I called my husband, Mickey, and he invited me to join him for lunch. I guess that will be one good thing about being in summer school - lunch dates with my hubby! Today, I met him at work and we headed to On the Border for a nice mid-day meal. We love Mexican food and eat it all of the time. It is just one of those things that we never grow tired of.

After lunch, I dropped Mickey off at work and went to our local Best Buy to make a BIG purchase- a Nikon D5000. The salesman was so nice and actually works as a professional photographer and for Nikon. Needless to say, he was able to answer any question I had, plus provided me with lots of other helpful information, tips, and tricks. I have been wanting a SLR camera for a while now and Mick and I decided that this was a deal that couldn't be resisted. I am so happy we found this deal when we did because Mick has his last race before the summer break this Sunday. Hopefully between now and then I can learn the basics of how to capture some of the best shots! Any tips, tricks, suggestions are greatly appreciated....

You would think that the day would end there, but it didn't. On the way home, I called my sister and convinced her to join me for a mani/pedi. Oooh! It was so relaxing and I always love spending time with my big sis!

Once I finally returned home, I was so excited to see a package sitting at the front door. I thought it was my textbook, but it was actually my blog books from Blog2Print. One of the main reason I started blogging was to serve as a "scrapbook/journal" for our family near and far. I was so happy when I realized that I could have the posts and pictures bound into an actual book. My first order contained the 2008 and 2009 book. I can already tell this was a good investment because Mackaylan hasn't stopped flipping through the pages since we walked in the door.

After dinner, we spent some time outside as a family. Mickey worked on his 4-wheeler, I did some reading for class tomorrow, and Mackaylan drew some pictures with sidewalk chalk- one of her favorite outdoor activities. Needless to say, it was one marvelous Monday!

You are going to LOVE your new camera. My first DSLR was a Canon and I loved mine. And that Blog2Print thing sounds amazing! I think I am going to have to look into that!

I can't wait to see all of your new pictures. I don't think I will ever be able to go without my Canon. I am about to have my second blog book printed. I used Blurb though. It was very time consuming.
