e are waiting for our new DSLR to arrive (ours was stolen, so we had to order a new one). I knew the two week wait would be unbearable, so I decided to treat myself to a new point and shoot to get me by until the mailman brings my DSLR. It will be nice to have this extra camera for days when I don't want to lug around the giant, heavy camera.
I played around with it a bit, trying to learn the settings. I figure I should probably do the same with our DSLR when it arrives, since I had never even learned how to use our old one properly.
Last night I got to try it out when we went for dinner to celebrate some friends' birthdays.
The hubby and I had some Thai pizza:
This morning I had cinnamon raisin toast and OJ while I did some homework.
We spent the day having lunch with my family, and then hanging out with our little nephew.
The sun was shining and it was a beautiful day.
Dinner at the in-laws included steak, baked potatoes, stuffed tomatoes, garlic toast and mushrooms. I had a little of each, but a LOT of mushrooms!
Dessert was 2 milk chocolate covered strawberries and a mini blizzard.
