New Toy!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I spent Thanksgiving at my parents’ house, but came back to Phoenix on Saturday for a wedding (Congrats Thanh & Christina!). I had a great time visiting family for a couple days and then celebrating on Saturday with my friends – it was definitely a good weekend!
And what weekend would be complete without a little shopping? The madness of Black Friday to be exact…well, actually it was more like Black Thursday this year. Anyway, I bought toys, movies, and something special for me…and that’s what this post is all about.
My new toy:

I’ve been saving up for a new camera for months and I knew that Black Friday would be the best time to buy. I searched all of the deals and ended up deciding on this Canon Rebel T3 package from Target. So I braved the cold and waited in line for Target to open on Thursday night. But they were sold out before I could get one…within the first 10 minutes of the sale. So, I rushed back to my parents’ house and ordered it online.
In all honesty, I only waited in line for about 15 minutes and only because I made it through Wal-Mart so quickly that I had time to spare. It was cold though!
If you’re wondering why I didn’t just order it online to begin with it’s because I wanted to play with it right away - I didn’t want to wait for it to ship. BUT I just checked the tracking info and my camera is supposed to be here tomorrow! It’s shipping from Tempe, AZ, so it’ll only take a day for delivery! Yay!
I’m sure it’ll take me awhile to figure out, but expect to see better pictures on here soon!
Anyone else hit the Black Friday sales? Did you buy presents for others or splurge on yourself like I did?


  1. Yay! How exciting :) I have the 2Ti that we got as a wedding present - and I love it. Canon is definitely the way to go! So glad you were able to get it online, it's crazy how quickly everything sell out. Hope it come tomorrow for you!

    And I didn't really do Black Friday shopping, but ended up getting an iPhone (no special deal unfortunately, but still a good deal with a new contract.) I'm loving it!

    1. (My "s" is sticking, so that's why I'm missing it in "sellS" and "comeS" I usually realize it, but missed those two!

  2. Yeah, for you. A good camera makes bad projects look more least for me. Have fun learning it.

  3. I would love to have a new camera, but I'm not much of a shopper...

    After working retail for years, I NEVER go shopping at the sales on Black Whatever Days!

  4. Have fun with your new toy! I hope someday to have a DSLR!

    Black Friday shopping can be crazy, I am glad you got your new camera! :)
