Mama's Got a Brand New Bag!

For my birthday a few months ago, I got a GORGEOUS new diaper bag:

I am in love with it!!! Thank you hubby!!! As if that weren't enough, he ALSO got me an exquisite new camera bag:

The only problem was I didn't have the DSLR camera to go in it yet.  I have been wanting one for soooo long, but they are so pricey, so I have been holding out.  I saw a good deal at Costco for the camera that I wanted, plus an extra lens, for cheaper than the cost of just the camera at Best Buy .  But of course when I went back to get it, they were sold out.  I learned they weren't getting any more, so I was back to square one.  Then, for Mother's Day, the hubs took me to a local camera store and bought me my newest baby:

Its official name is the Canon EOS Rebel T2i, but my name for it is my new love. Why? Because it can take stunning pictures of all my true loves!! I am having soooo much fun taking photos of our little family.  Hubs, if you're reading this, you are so generous and thoughtful and I am sooooooo grateful.  I don't know how I lucked out with a hubby like you, and NOT because of all the pretty things that you buy me!!!



  1. Sharing your excitement! Photograph away!

  2. You lucky girl! Can't wait to hear how you like the new camera. I have one on my wish list for Santa next year...and that diaper bag, psshhht..what diaper bag? That is too cute to be a diaper bag! Enjoy your new toys!

  3. aw, so sweet of your hubby! i JUST got a new camera on monday, though i purchased it for myself as my mother's day present...hehe. i got the canon rebel, T1i and am totally in love. the only problem is that i know pretty much nothing about photography, so i have to do a lot of reading of the manual so that i can use it to its full capacity. all i know at this point is that i want to take pretty pictures. can't wait to see what you take!

  4. Thank you everyone!! I am super excited too!! SJB, like you I am a total beginner. I actually bought an instructional DVD with my camera and it is AWESOME. Highly recommend! Pictures coming soon!!!

  5. I'm pretty sure that I am very jealous. I want that camera so bad. I keep telling myself that when my youngest goes to kindergarten and I'm working part time, my first couple of checks will go to pay for a brand new DSLR! (He goes to kindergarten not this fall, but next fall.)

  6. Thanks ladies!!! I am so excited! Pictures to come!! :)

  7. Beautiful bag!!!

  8. hi there! i just wanted to see how it was going with your new camera! i'm loving mine, but the more i use it the more i realize just how little i know about photography. my dream is to have all sorts of perfect "candid" shots of my family. LOVE the candids. but i'm still trying to figure out how to get those candids, and actually have myself in the photo. i feel really weird "directing" people on how to take candids. i have so many visions in my mind of the pictures i want, but don't know how to get them.
    i think one of my favorite features of my canon is when you hold down the shutter button and it takes multiple pictures. have you tried that? it works really well in the action mode.
    just wanted to see how it was going! and yes, i'm completely jealous of your camera bag too. the hubs got me a bag for mother's day, but it's not as pretty as yours. i love him dearly for getting it, but still want yours!
