Picture of the Week

I am obsessed really enjoy taking photos. I enjoy it so much, my husband and I bought this camera. Drum roll please...A Nikon D3000.

I had been drooling over this camera daily since I decided I wanted last December. And about a month ago with a coupon and gift cards in hand, we went to Best Buy and purchased it. Why Best Buy? Well because we had a coupon for 10% off and we were able to use the points we've been saving to get $125 gift card to Best Buy. Those two combined saved us $175 plus the fact that the guy at the register accidentally gave us 20% when he rang the coupon up on the wrong item - that's another $50 off. That saved us $225 {insert happy dance} and because I am an impatient person...I was very happy to take it home with me that night and not have to wait weeks for it to come in. That is why we chose to purchase it there.

I haven't had enough time working full-time and being a full-time student to look at the manual or two books I have but I think my pictures are pretty darn good. This camera pretty much does all the work for me. Who knows, maybe I won't even read them...just kidding.

Anyways, on to why I am writing this post. Since I have such awesome photography skills...ok, ok since I have such an awesome camera, I want to do a weekly "Picture of the Week" post. Now, keep in mind, not all of them are going to be museum worthy, like this first one...but they will be my favorite for the week. With out further ado (I'm not sure if that's how you even spell it, but you know what I mean), here's the first installment. I promise the next one won't be so lengthy. maybe.

This is why my husband does not go grocery shopping with me...they were "on sale". Does anyone else have this problem?


  1. Hi , I am just green with envy. I have had my eye on that camera for a very long time but am super curious as to how you found a 10% off coupon? Please share!

  2. now you've got me on a new camera kick...I have promised myself I won't splurge until kids, though...ugh. we'll see! :)

    and this is random, but what a good idea to take all of those out of the box and store in a freezer bin. I like that idea!
