"" Three Ladies and a Dad: A picture is worth a thousand words.

A picture is worth a thousand words.

You guys, I got it. I have not said anything here but I have been madly in love with the Nikon D40 (doesn't it just roll off the tongue so nicely?) for some time now. Anyone that knows me IRL (in real life) knows this. And Sunday morning I woke up and within three hours, knew that it was going to be the day this baby got in my hands.

In was not planned that way. The plan was for me to save up money...money from Ebay sales, doing surveys and a few dollars here and there. And I had close to 20% saved so far. Once I got the right amount of money saved, I would walk in and get it. Simple as that.

But then Whitney calls me. She has been shopping digital SLR cameras and just started today actively looking, catching a feel for them.

"Alaina, they have this Nikon D40 on clearance for $299.00. This years model and everything."

At this time, I think my heart skipped a beat.

After a bit on convincing Jeremy that this was the best deal ever, he agreed.

(Or maybe it was he was just sick of hearing about it. I am still not sure.)

But I have it! And I'm in awe. There are so many things this baby can do and I must learn it all, or at least try! So I am warning you, I will be posting some pictures. They may not be great but we can learn together, m'kay?
