Why'd I buy it?

I'm linkin' up with one of my most awesomeness BBB's,
AMC from Elementary AMC for her new monthly
linky...Why'd I buy it?

It's no secret that I like to shop.
My most favorite form of shoppin' involves the internet.
I'm lazy.
I can scroll, click, stick it in my cart
and a few days later, 
stuff magically appears at my doorstep.
I can lay on the couch in my jammies,
avoid traffic, long lines...and...people.
Stress free.
The only problem...I spend money.
You can't win them all.

Recently I bought a big purchase, not online...
and I didn't even go to a store.
I won that one.

My dear sweet friend Miss Nelson is 
an amazin' photographer.
She has some awesome cameras and lenses.
I don't know how to use not a one of them, but 
it's pretty neat watchin' her snap shots.
I'm jealous of her talent and I want to be just like her.

So...I begged her to sell me one her cameras..and she DID.
I love her.

Why'd I buy it?

I want to take amazingness pictures for my blog
and to torture my friends and family every chance I get.
Shhh...don't tell them I said that or they will hide.

This is my biggest Back to School purchase and
by far my most favorite.
I can't wait for the kiddos to smile for me on the 
first day of school.
I'm goin' to paparazzi them all year and it's goin'
to be so much fun!

Be on the lookout for some photos.
No judgin' though...I still don't know what I'm doin'!

Happy Wednesday, friends!


  1. That is an excellent camera! You are going to love it! I'm also a fan of the online shopping. I like that I can sit on my couch, watch tv, and order stuff that gets delivered to my door! Enjoy your camera!!!

  2. I am super jealous of your camera and I will be super jealous of your awesome photos. I need a better camera but I think I would be too lazy to learn how to use it. Maybe I will just hire someone to take photos of my class. We are getting family photos done on Saturday - ugh!! Thank you so much for linking up - you are truly a rock star! P.S. Right before this I was online shopping.

  3. Yay!! I LOVE IT! This new camera will become an addiction. I'm telling you, mine doesn't leave my side. I can't wait to see all your amazing photos! Shoot away, my friend!

  4. Oooo! So fun! I don't know how to take a photo worth a darn. Miss Nelson can teach me, right?
    Have fun annoying the stink out of everyone!

  5. Fantastic camera. I have the model just prior to yours. I still haven't totally learned how to use mine and it has been....I don't know how many years that I have had So be sure to post all the tips and tricks you learn. Have fun!

  7. Love it! I have a Canon EOS 40D and I have no idea how to use it like it's suppose to be used. I am going to buy me a new lens in a month or so. Have fun with it!

    1. I'm going to have to do some serious researching or take a class or something. I have no idea how to use it either!!

  8. I have a camera like that too. I got it for Christmas two years ago. I need to use it more this year. We can figure out how to do cool stuff with it together. Two heads are better than one right? :-) :-)

  9. Enjoy your new camera! I can't wait to see pictures! I am still using a very basic camera. It works fine for me, but one day I'd like to take the plunge for a nice one like that. Have fun!

  10. I'm not sure we can be friends...because jealousy is at an all time high!!! And I will hate you every time I see your amazing blog pictures!! LOL!! You know I'm kidding and love you!

  11. Love that camera! I only have the camera on my iPad/phone...that's pretty sad isn't it? I love shopping online too! I'm an Amazon junkie! I've also joined the stitch fix craze! I should receive my first shipment the end of August!


  12. LOVE that you bought a camera! I'm a Nikon girl myself, and have seriously been lazy about using it lately. I have to get back into the habit. I'm getting addicted to online, I need a paycheck.

  13. ... and to capture all your wedding planning for those of us too far away to see it in person (I hope)!

  14. ok I am GREEN with envy right now friend! I have been wanting one of those bad boys for awhile now. I thought the hubs was going to get me one for christmas, but sadly it did not happen. I think I will break down and get one or order one and tell him to give it to me as a birthday present lol. I cannot wait to see your great pics now!

  15. Can you capture some shots on how to work a camera like that and blog about it?
    I would love to be a better photographer.
    And I am with you on the shopping from home, but sometimes it's dangerous to have a credit card so close to the computer. $$$$

  17. I wish I were a better photographer too! I can't wait to see all of your new awesome pics!

    Forever in Fifth Grade

    1. I've taken about 25 pictures and out of those, 21 are blurry. Lol!

  18. I played around with my teammate's fancy camera on the last day of summer school and definitely had camera-envy. Have fun with yours!


  19. You are going go love it! You will get the hang of it. Stick with auto focus for a little while, then I suggest taking one step at a time. I still have tons to learn, but there are tons of tutorials out there. So excited for you and cannot wait to see you paparazzi shots!

  20. I can't wait to see your pictures! Congrats on your awesome camera!! I love mine! Never leave home without it!
