Philly Bound

The day is here! Tonight after dinner Dustin and I are packing up the car and heading East. I have not been home since March so I am excited to see family and friends, plus eat some good Philly food. I even sent my parents a food itinerary so we can all be on the same page. I am also excited to be around good malls for Black Friday!

New Moon

I am a big Twilight fan. I have read all the books several times and own the first movie on DVD. So, when a friend of mine asked me if I wanted to go see New Moon at Midnight I was THRILLED. I get a night out, sans baby, and with a bunch of other girls. We are going to have pizza all together tonight, watch the first movie, and then head over the theater to wait in line for the movie to start. I will have to let you know how it goes. :)

Wish List Wednesday

Sorry for my lack of posting. You would think I would have hundreds of pictures to post with my new camera but I did not pull it out all weekend! Brooke was at Grandma and Papa's all Friday night and for most of the day Saturday, and Sunday we had church and vegged on the couch all day. So basically.... I am lazy.

But I always have time for Wish List Wednesday! This week my focus is some new music CDs I would like for my car.

Robbie Seay Band. I really need to update my worship music!

Fee. Another awesome Christian artist. In fact, I think I would like more than just one of their CDs.

Kutless. Yes, another Christian artist. Can you see a pattern emerging?

And lastly, Jeremy Camp. I used to listen to his music all the time and I eventually got behind on his CDs. I have some catching up to do!

Brooke has serious moves!

I am updating my last post with an even better video. Watch it. Trust me!

Dancing Brookie!

I was NOT trying to recreate the Beyonce Baby video in any way, this is just the only music video she will dance to. I have tried others, believe me! :) I was watching it one day and she came running over to see it, so since then we have small dance parties. Today she was really shaking it.

Wish List Wednesday

With Christmas coming up quickly I cannot help but start a mental list of a few things I would like. Of course, I already got a camera so I doubt I will get anything more from Dustin, but I still like to hope.

Uggs. I heard these are very comfortable and I would not mind a pair

A video monitor. I really wish I could watch Brooke while she is "napping" and see what is really going on in there.

A treadmill. My only form of working out is walking when Dustin gets home but since it is now dark when he pulls up, I have not taken a walk in weeks. And it is starting to show.

Some Pictures

I have much to learn with my new camera but I had a lot of fun playing around with it this weekend! I am very thankful for my awesome portrait lens and LOVE it so far. My biggest problem is having a very mobile subject.

This is a little dark but I think it's cute.

My wish came true!

Today I got two very, very wonderful things in the mail.

A Canon Rebel XSi with kit lens.

And a portrait lens as well.

If you remember, these things were on two of my Wednesday Wish Lists (which I have slacked on recently) and I finally own them! I have wanted a professional camera for a long time now and Dustin said, "In the Fall". I have much to learn about this camera and will be doing various photo shoots with Brooke to get the hand of all the features. My big goal is to learn about shutter speed, ISO, and aperture.

"Uh Oh"

Whenever Brooke drops something off her highchair or out of a shopping cart we say, "Uh oh!". Well recently she has been beating us to the punch and saying "Uh Uh" whenever something hits the floor.

She dropped her book out of a shopping cart yesterday. "Uh Uh"

I accidentally knocked the TV remote off the counter. "Uh Uh"

And then she did this..... "UH UH"

Swag Bucks

I recently signed up for something called Swag Bucks.

I am not sure how many of you have heard of it, but so far I am loving this site! It is free to sign up and there are simple things you can do to earn "Swag Bucks". The easiest way is to use the search engine! The search engine is powered by Google and Ask so it is legit. If you are a frequent googler like me, then you will truly benefit from this.

You can also earn Swag Bucks from shopping online. Shopping! I am an avid online shopper so I was excited to see some of my favorite stores on their list.

You also earn Swag Bucks by referring friends. For every Swag Buck your friends earn, you will earn one too! How awesome is that?

So far I only have 5 swag bucks but I earned them all within 20 minutes of being on the site. You can exchange Swag Bucks for gift cards to certain stores/sites. Amazon.com is a big one and I look forward to getting gift cards for Christmas shopping!
