{surprise!}

i for one, am not {usually} a big surprise lover.

but this weekend i got a HUGE one!

and i LOVE it.


well, ya know how i was tellin' y'all that it was chance's birthday....


well he surprised me this past weekend with a NEW camera. and not just any old camera, but a new D3000 Nikon + a 55-200mm lens to go with it for portraits!


i've been dreaming of buying one since i found out we were pregnant, but i knew they cost a pretty penny and i knew that probably now wasn't the best time to be dropping cash like that.


but i still dreamed {and i must have told chance about my "dreams" too!}


well sure enough. saturday night, he got me goooooood.


we went out to holmes lake to reminisce about our first date together. right as we were getting out of the pickup he told me to grab he blankets from the backseat, me not thinking anything at all, opened the backseat door and there sat two perfect little presents. My heart skipped a few beats {sorry rove!}, we took the presents over to the park table to open them. i couldn't figure out what in the world that was sooooo heavy was in those darn boxes. and sure enough, it was a Nikon d3000 and a lens.
that's when the flood gates started, i couldn't stop crying i was soooo happy and excited and completely blown away
{i still get a little teary eyed when i think about it now.}
anyways, he made the investment of a lifetime and i am forever grateful for my new camera. i don't consider myself a materialistic person, but a camera captures memories. memories you can never get back in time. and how can you really put a price on that?
needless to say, i had an unexpectedly amazing weekend and i cannot wait to try out my fancy camera on my new little subject in a few weeks, but for now chance and the dogs will have to do. :)
so now y'all are in for a treat, expect LOTS of pictures in the near future
