Surprise, you're on Twinkles camera!

Yep yep yep, I am a happy girl. Not only did Zeus throw the best surprise party ever on Thursday night. He purchased the camera I have been waiting for all these months and years.

I loved and cherished my trusty ole Sony DSC but it was outdated and would not allow for me to change the lens out for more Professional quality photos. It is a charming little camera that has taken literally thousands of photos and been through wind, rain, sand, snow and lots of drops on the floor. But it was time to upgrade.

Zeus was sure to push me off for a few more years and I had convinced myself I could manage a little while longer. But deep down I wanted a new camera to push me a little more in the photo world. I have been super envious of some many and their new cameras but I was patient.

Well Zeus delivered in the best way. During the surprise party he had enlisted a classmate who was good with camera's and really liked photography. Zeus bought the camera and took it and all its contents to his classmate, A, to put together. A was kind enough to take a few initial photos at the party. I was a little jealous of A's cool camera. He asked if I wanted to see it and of course, I jumped at the opportunity. He said I could have it. I was like what? He said yeah you can have it cause its not mine. OK, then whose is it if its not yours. He said why yours of course. I was definitely confused but he and Zeus assured me that this indeed was my very own camera. I was beside myself. I even did an embarrassing happy dance in the middle of the kitchen while 40 other people looked at me like a crazy woman. I did not care, I had my new camera in my little hands and I couldn't have been any happier.

 From then on I was on a mission and that was to capture all those amazing, special people that came out to wish me a happy birthday. I think I managed to get just about everyone. There was a few little ones I did not capture. Never the less, I am now the happy owner of the wonderful, incredible Canon 2Ti. Oh Yeah, it is ROCKIN.

Amazing little camera for this simple little stay at home momma.
