Wish List on a Day Off!

Today is Lewis' birthday. He took off work Wednesday, Thursday & Friday of this week because I'm also off on fall break. Today we decided to have our babysitter keep Isis anyway so that we could have a day together just hanging out without a baby like we used to! It's crazy because we haven't had a day alone like this since before Isis was born!! Of course I ended up cleaning & organizing most of the morning, but now I'm just laying in bed watching a movie! In the middle of the day!!! Because I can.

But I'm also catching up on blog reading & thanks to Adriel's new Photography series at The Mommyhood Memos & then all Jhen's beautiful pics at From Here to Eternity, I'm thinking about the fact that I badly want a DSLR camera. It's my #1 wish list item for Christmas. If I got nothing but that, I would be so happy! It's like the gift that keeps on giving!

I really want a Canon Rebel xti, but I'm open to other suggestions. I also heard good things about a Nikon D40. But here's my question, since most of you are taking fabulous pics for your blogs...

What kind of camera do you have??
What do you like about it?

do you have a lot of experience with cameras? i only ask because mine is not at the level of a rebel or some nikon DSLR, but i know that i have more capabilities than i understand how to use. i guess, before you spend the money, make sure you'll actually use all the extra "stuff" the high-end cameras have to offer.

What a doll! Thanks for stopping by my blog :) Isn't nice having husband and you time. Gosh it's been a while since me and hubby have had that LOL We had a nice date like that back in May for our anniversary but nothing since lol I found it was easier with one kids to get a sitter for date days and nights but now with three not so much LOL

I'd love to learn how to take better pictures, too. I want to do a short photography course, but it has stayed on the 'one day in the future' list for a while now.

What a nice day for you and your husband. You have to take those days every once in awhile.
I have a NikonD5000 and I love it. The reason we got it is because I photograph all my children's many athletic endeavors and it does a really great job with it. It is a big camera so you can't really carry it everywhere. I have a little camera that I carry in my purse to catch all those random shots.
Good Luck hunting for your gift!

So nice to have a relaxing day to yourselves -- enjoy!

Also loving Adriel's photo tips. I wish I had some camera advice for you, but I'm in your boat. My camera is a five-year-old Sony digital something or other and I want a nice DSLR!

I just have to say I love the picture of Isis on top. The headband is adorable. Sigh I need a baby girl I can dress up like that.
