out with the old....

.... and in with the new! I thought I'd share a little sneak peak of our new home, it's really nice for a rental and definitely an upgrade!

the old
The middle was ours. And don't mind the comfy clothes :)
the new

Now if someone could just come unpack and organize for me, our home will be perfect :)

I also thought I'd share my new, fun gift that Eric gave me. You know.... the Christmas/Birthday/Valentines/Anniversary/etc gift?



Canon Rebel t3i

I am so excited about this camera! I always wanted a nicer camera for the days when we have babies so that I can take pretty pictures of them, but with my blogging obsession I've turned into a crazy picture girl so Eric knew I'd get our money's worth out of this :) I have so much to learn about this camera, like holy crap. But I'm excited to slowly figure it all out! And if you guys have any tips.... please share!

Eek! I'm so excited for you, I better list it so I don't ramble:

1. Love the new place - congratulations. I'd love to come over and help you unpack, I'll bring the champagne!
2. Loving the gift! Super sweet. I got mine as a wedding present. Doing a photography class later this month too.
3. You're beautiful. Your hat and coat are super adorable.

This is such a 'dizzy happy' kinda post <3

Sara Louise said...

Nice present and NICE new home! Good luck getting all settled in - new homes are always so exciting! :-)

Lil' Woman said...

Pamela said...

Gorgeous new place!! Can't wait to see more pictures of it, with your lovely new camera ;)

Shannon @ Bungalow960 said...

Holy cow I'm so jealous of your camera! We looked at them at Costco last night, but we just can't afford it right now. More crappy cell phone pics over at my blog! Haha

Amber said...

Yay for your new house! And double yay for your new camera! You look totally adorable in your hat!!

Venassa said...

The new place looks like it would be so pretty inside! Congrats!
All I can tell you about the camera is to learn what all the buttons do. I've had my camera two years now and I just figured out what my 'exposure compensation' button was, and that would've helped me out so much in the past.

Jen said...

Your new house looks so awesome!

I love your hair and hat in that picture!

annnd yay for the awesome new camera :) good job Eric!

Alyx said...

Ahhh!!! So excited for you guys and your new house. It's beautiful!
And I love my Canon! I have the Rebel t3, and it's great. My only advice - read the manual! It is boring and long, but it really helps!

dottie said...

Awesome!! Both the new place and the camera! They will both change your life! Happy Friday!

Oh yay, your new home looks wonderful! How exciting you got a new camera too. Does Eric even know what he's getting himself into? ;)

I googled camera tips, but I think that taking lots and lots of pictures is the best way to learn... that and playing with the settings. Enjoy the new camera.

Bri Buzali said...

I LOVE the new place, it's super cute, congratulations girl!

Jessie said...

Even though I don't comment as often as I should, I do drop in to read your blog from time to time. Thanks for all the kind comments on my blog.

Your new place looks big! I totally understand the headache of unpacking and organizing. Good luck!

Can I say camera envy? I have an old Canon Rebel xsi. I would die to have the t3i with VIDEO! Favorite websites: iheartfaces.com, ilovephotography.com. Learning to use your camera on the manual modes is a lot to wrap your head around! Also, the program that your camera came with, Digital Photo Professional, is a great program to start editing with. Have fun!!!

Laura said...

congrats on your new place!! settling in and organizing sounds like so much fun...wow i must be in full on nesting mode! and yay for a new camera- awesome!!

Brooke said...

I just bought this camera too!! You're right so much to learn with it but very exciting!
Cute new house too :)

Christine said...

yay! congrats on the new house and new camera! I just got a DSLR from my hubs for christmas and I LOVE LOVE it :)

Cindy and Jordan said...

isn't that camera great? I'm taking a photography class right now & am learning SO much from it. You can't go wrong with a Cannon Rebel. Glad you're having fun!

- Lesley said...

Congrats on moving! Even tho the unpacking sucks, the newness is fun.
I have that same camera and love it. There is so much to be learned tho, you're right!
