Mama's got a brand new...



Seriously. My old pink Sony Cybershot was a gift back in 2005. It's nearly 2012, people. And I now have a child. I should not be relying on my iphone to capture priceless memories. Ye Olde Sony Cybershot had an amazing 4.5 megapixels. High tech, I'm tellin' ya.

I'd been thinking about procuring a new camera for awhile. My bff, Kelli, got a refurbished DSLR months ago and I've been green with envy and drooling over her sharp pictures ever since. I thought about it and sadly, decided that I'm not the kind of person who needs a DSLR. Namely because I'm cheap and can't afford it, even a refurb. I put it on the back burner for awhile. I think I previously mentioned how insanely busy I've been. Then I started thinking about Christmas cards....and I realized that I don't have any pictures of Ryan, or me, or Paul since May. How did this happen? I mean, I have some pictures. They're all on my iphone and half are of Ryan sleeping or are blurry.

It just so happens that I stumbled into $100 I had previously saved and forgotten about. I saved this $100 in 2003 and forgot about it. Seriously, 8 years ago. Anyways, so I had that and then I also got $100 from my work for completing the wellness incentive. So I was suddenly $200 richer. Anyways, rambling story short, I got a new camera today and I love it.

I actually ended up with another Sony Cybershot. Ye Olde Cybershot circa 2005 still works and served me well. Plus, the one I got has awesome reviews and was in my price range. It's not pink but its pretty freaking sleek and the quality of the pictures is just amazing. I guess I've been living in the stone age because my iphone was my go-to camera. I can't wait to take some awesome pictures!

Good cameras are the greatest!! I have a DSLR that my sister got me as a bday present and I love it! But It's big and I'd love to get another small one to carry around. Can't wait to see pics.
