Don't worry though, it will be fun for me too. I get to head out to Utah this Friday to visit my family! I get to meet my niece, play with my nephews. It will be fun. I love family! I'll be out there for about 9 days, which is fabulous! Then Lish and I will meet back up at home, two weeks from today.
In other news, I just wanted to show off what we gave each other for our anniversary. I didn't think Lish would have time to get me anything, because we had all his family the weekend before. So, I didn't rush to get him anything. Go figure, when I got home from work that day, this was sitting on the table-- --and I love it! (For those who aren't sure what this is for, it's a sewing box.) I was planning on getting him something, but I just decided to make it an anniversary/Bahama trip gift. So I didn't give it to him until a week ago. I didn't take a "during" or "after" picture, but the wrapped presents are: a new swimsuit, some games for the DS in case he gets bored at his grandparents, and an underwater disposable camera for when he's snorkeling. He can take some pretty pictures for me.
This picture was just before we went to bed on our anniversary. We were so tired, we didn't go out or anything. It was lovely. I'm so lucky to be married to this man!
Last order of business, or whatever. . . I got a very early birthday present this year. I had been hinting to Lish for a while that I wanted a new camera. The one I have I got for my 19th birthday, so it's a little aged for the digital era. It has been broken for a while (the dial on top doesn't work, still takes pictures though) and Lish's camera was broken when he got it (the lens cover is broken, so it doesn't close). Anyway, this little family has been in need of a new camera. And thanks to my wonderful family and my amazing husband, I got one! We decided to get it early so I can learn how to use it while I'm flying to and from Utah. Then I can show it off to the fam and get to know the ins and outs of the camera, because I'll have time!
So there it is! My beautiful camera! It's a Nikon Coolpix P90. I decided not to get an SLR yet because I want to learn more about cameras and photography first. This is like my starter/practice camera. I love it. There is a feature on it that takes several consecutive pictures, and I took some of Lish dancing. It was just beautiful. The pictures and the dancing. So thank you everyone for my early birthday present! I can't wait to learn more about it's features and show it off!
So, that's what's been going on here lately. Sorry I've been so bad with my updating! Sheesh! It happens sometimes I guess. Thanks for still checking back. :)
