Camera Girl

 My husband is super awesome. He got me the Canon EOS Rebel T3i and so far I couldn’t be happier with it! He is so sweet. I have seriously ALWAYS wanted a DSLR camera and I have only heard good things about it. I have spent the last couple days taking pictures and I am trying to pretend I know how to use it. I took a photo class in high school ( too bad I always skipped it... Dang-it !!) I can only hope over time that I will become an expert with my new camera.
This morning me and Terrance got our grocery shopping done for the week. We picked up some pretty flowers to brighten up the house. I love buying fresh flowers at the grocery store and making my own arrangements out of them. Fresh bright flowers make me and my family happy. I filled our mason’s jars that we had on the tables at our wedding.
I took some pictures of them for fun to get to know my camera. You can’t judge me I am just a newb.

 In preparation for the wedding me and one of my bridesmaid's were digging through our local antique stores for any hidden gems we could use for the big day. She stumbled upon a drawer filled with vintage lace. There was so much beautiful lace we found the ones we liked and she bought them for me.  We used the lace for numerous things for the wedding.I hot glue gunned some of the lace onto mason jars and wrapped twine around, fastening with a bow. They were filled with flowers and wheat. They were simple and sweet and I loved them. (I am obsessed with anything to do with a mason jar) 

Our wedding rings with our vases that me and my bridesmaids filled the morning of the wedding 

I will always have the jars throughout our house...
Now that I have a really good camera I want to sure that it is protected. I was looking at different bags at Best Buy and couldn't find anything I liked. I don't want to carry a bag bag around that screams "Hi I'ma great camera!!!" I want a purse-like bag or a messenger bag. After some Google searching I found a great website called Jo Totes they have the CUTEST bags ever!!! They are fashionable yet sensible. You see I have a problem... I'm not a purse-person. I never have been. I just don't like carrying them around. I am currently trying to force myself into becoming a purse-person, if you know me... you know I'm constantly losing SOMETHING and it drives me crazy. (How it doesn't drive Trent insane I will never know) BUT I don't want to that girl anymore. So I have a solution. I need to find a great bag that will double as a purse and a camera bag. BOOM. I will definitely carry my camera around all the time and so I need something sensible to carry it in. RIGHT??! And something super cute would not hurt any bit. Any-who  I am currently campaigning for a camera bag and the hubbs is "thinking it over". Crossing my fingers I get one of these beauties for my camera to rest in...

My favorite color is blue. EVERY blue. Which blue do YOU like better???

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekends!!!
