This Weekend I...

This weekend I... was called the paparazzi.

Thanks to a super-duper sale, a 10% coupon for all things left on our wedding registry, my mom's target credit card (which gave us an additional 5% off), and some target gift cards, I got my new baby!

It's seriously amazing.  We got it Friday night and by this morning, I had taken almost 300 pictures.  So in love.  I'm trying to teach myself how to shoot in manual mode (thank you Pinterest for a million tutorials), and  I think I'm starting to catch on.  I got some really great photos!!

This weekend I... went to Gigi's Cupcakes.  I'm both really excited and terrified that there's now a Gigi's Cupcakes constantly accessible to me.

I tried the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough cupcake for the first time, and oh my gosh.  It's the best thing ever.  It's a cookie in cupcake form.  Basically my two favorite things in one!  

Someone eats his cupcakes wrong...  You're supposed to create bites that have proportionate amounts of cake and icing!  Please tell me that I'm not the only one who has cupcake bite OCD...

This weekend I... played Super Mario Brothers for the first time in forever.  Donny and I agreed that if I could get the camera I wanted, then he could get the Wii he wanted. Which is basically a win-win.  I also laughed so hard watching Donny play the boxing and sword fighting games that I thought I would hyperventilate.  I took some great videos, but I promised they wouldn't go on the blog.  Sorry, y'all.  :)

This weekend I... played in our Christmas program at church.  It's one of my favorite weekends of the year because we do five performances from Friday to Sunday.  This year's music was probably my favorite of all the years I've participated.  It was so, so great.

This weekend I... got more wedding presents.  They keep trickling in slowly but surely.  I spent a while on Saturday writing thank you notes, which isn't really that bad.  I got in a rhythm and was able to knock a bunch out while catching up on Gossip Girl.  :)

How was everybody else's weekend??  



  1. Sounds like a great weekend!! DSLRs are the best; glad you're loving yours :-)

  2. YAY for the new camera! I am so intimidated by the DSLR cameras, but I think it would be so fun to have one!

  3. I have to admit, I eat my icing first of if I eat the cake, I only eat the top part of it. I like the icing much more? Yes, I am 8 year old. At least, I am when it comes to cake. Those pictures are amazing! Great work!

  4. Oh lord, I LOVE my Nikon!!! Wouldn't trade it for anything!

  5. gaahh SO jealous of the DSLR!!

  6. I love GiGi's!! The pink princess cupcake is my fav!! Stopped by from Mingle Monday!!

  8. Hey, new follower from the Mingle Monday Blog Hop over at Life of Meg. Great photos! I have that exact same Garfield toy with the sunglasses and I love Super Mario Brothers, so classic and awesome! :)

  10. The new camera looks great! And takes awesome pics, too! Totally agree with you on the cupcake theory - equal parts icing and cake is a MUST! Gigi's are good, but sometimes I think they might have a little bit too much icing.
