Our Five Ring Circus: In Love

In Love

I bought myself a little something today.

Okay, so it's a big something.

I'm absolutely, 100 %, head over heels in love with this camera! I've been lusting after it for over a year. I bought it this morning, and had such a busy day, that I couldn't even open the box until after the kids were in bed.

The moment I took my first picture with it, I was smitten. I couldn't get my computer to read the memory card, though, so the new pictures will have to wait until tomorrow.

Nikon D90, I HEART YOU! And we've only just met!

I do feel as if I'm cheating on my first Nikon. It's going to gather a bit of dust, but will remain my trusty backup.


I started shopping for Lexie's spring/summer wardrobe today. That was a fiasco! She kept picking up items, even if they weren't in her size, and handing them to me. She was having so much fun! After a bit of arguing, we narrowed it down to 3 items, and plan on trying this another time.

I'm going to let her loose with her birthday money. She loves shopping for clothes and shoes. I felt a bit guilty, because she was picking items that I would never think of buying her, but she obviously liked them!


It's official! Dylan is signed up for T-Ball! Practices start in April. He insisted on wearing his baseball outfit to sign-ups. This consisted on baseball underwear, baseball socks, a baseball shirt, and a baseball hat. We had to talk him out of his glove, bat, and helmet. I'm thinking he's excited!


Our cat, Cosette, is really sick right now. I think we may have to make some difficult decisions soon.

To be honest, I don't even want to think about it right now.


I have a lot to do over the next few days to prepare for Lexie's party. These parties always sneak up on me, and I end up rushing around to get things done.

Luckily, Dylan's book order came in today, so the kids will stay busy.


My camera manual is calling my name, so I'm off to figure out all these features!

I love my new baby!


  1. Ok 1 i love book orders. Whenever the kids I nanny for have book orders come I order atleast 4 books!

    2nd - that is a big big present to buy yourself. I can't wait to buy myself a new camera even though it was put on hold now that the baby came a lot earlier then we expected!! Have fun and I can't wait to see your pictures!

  2. I got my new camera for Christmas and I've yet to really, really get to PLAY with it. I've taken pics, but they haven't all turned out.

    I got the Canon T1i for Dummies book for my b-day and I hope to have some time this weekend to read and play!

  6. congrats on the camera!! Have fun and I can't wait to see the new pics!

  7. That is a great camera. I have had a Nikon D40 for over a year and I still don't know how to work all the features!
