A very happy unanniversary to us

 

At least not yet :).

 

We will celebrate 11 years on July 31st, but Bryan and I decided to go ahead and do gifts (well, mine anyway…he doesn’t get his till our actual anniversary). This is way out of our norm, but this year we went big.

First up, Bryan got me a Shootsac with the Sprightly cover. Can I tell you how long I have had this bag on my wishlist…a long LONG time!

 

 

And of course, with that had to come the shoulder pad, since that is one of the few complaints about the bag.

As if that wasn’t enough, he also let me pick a new lens. I was torn between 3, a 28mm, 35mm and 85mm. Ultimately, I went with the 35mm. It has really good reviews and I am really getting away from taking pictures of people and more into taking pictures of “things”. I would love to get a foot in the door of some commercial photography/photojournalism, but we shall see. Perhaps I will pursue it once we get settled in Vegas…hmmm.

 

 

After all that though, I feel like Bryan’s gift just really doesn’t live up to mine. He is completely thrilled though. On our actual anniversary, I am taking him to see the Blue Man Group at the Venetian in Las Vegas. He has talked about going for years, so I figured if the Air Force was paying for our anniversary “trip” to Vegas, we might as well take advantage of it.

Of course, as luck would have it, after Bryan said to go ahead and order mine on Friday, I missed the cut off to have it shipped same day by a whole 15 minutes. Sigh. So here I sit, not so patiently awaiting Friday and the pretty blue and white boxes from my happy store, Adorama. If you hear shrieks of joy coming from my direction, now you know why!

    Oh my goodness, I love when Adorama boxes come!
    You will love the 35mm/1.8 it’s small and fast.
    I’d never heard of the shootsac before, but I can’t wait for your review.
    Congrats!
