a little camera love!

I am the proud new owner of one of these beauties! I did a ton of research on what kind of camera i wanted and this one, won out on some of the others! I am excited to get the wireless adapter, hopefully Santa will bring that to me  :)

The Nikon 3200
I am hoping to get some of the following for Christmas, or use some of my Santa money for them after the Holidays!

The Nikon Wireless Adapter I am looking forward to using this when we are taking pictures of our nieces, because we can send them right to them without having to wait and load the pictures on the computer.
I am also wanting a cute strap cover from Etsy, I really like this one!

I am looking forward to messing around with all the settings over the Holidays! I am sure my nieces are going to be mad at me for saying smile for the camera haha! I know my little model Macy is tired of me already!

What DSLR camera do you have? Any suggestions on accessories or other lenses to get?

I am happy today is Wednesday! i am looking forward to Thursday and then on Friday we have our Staff Retreat- Holiday Party! We have a fun day planned with Secret Santa's being revealed and we are also having a Cookie exchange, i am making these cookies! Hopefully they turn out! :)
I will end this blog post with a sweet picture of one of our nieces!

P.S. I am wanting a blog redesign, any suggestions on sites that do great work, or any suggestions on things i can do myself :) Thanks! You can email me here or leave a comment!

Until next time!

Ornament Swap 2012

I was paired up with Kristin at Happily After All I forgot to take a picture of the stuff i sent her, so i guess we will have to wait till she links up!

I was looking forward to this swap because i think it is so fun to see what other people like and to also receive a gift were you didn't really make a list and give to someone. Kristin and I emailed a list of some favorite things and we were off to shop. It is always fun to meet new people!

I received my gift and here is what i got :) Love it all

I got this really cool start ornament that is full of glitter :) we have a second tree we put up in our basement and i think this will be perfect for that tree!

This glass red ornament is going to be perfect for my wreath i have in our entry way, i have been trying to find a red ornament to finish it, sorry i didn't have time to place all my stuff before the link up!

My favorite some almond bark covered pretzels!

You can never go wrong with some yummy hot cocoa!

A Christmas Cookie candle, just screams Christmas in my house :)

Everything together! I want to thank Kristin for my lovely gifts! And i also want to thank the lovely ladies for hosting this swap and a BIG Thank you to Laura for hosting the link up!

Happy Holidays!

Until next time!
