"Delight yourself also in the LORD, and He shall give you the desires of your heart."
Ever since I mentioned getting a macro lens on a previous post, I've been thinking about it ever since. I've researched Nikon's macro lenses and prayed about buying one.
Well, if you haven't guessed already, today Daddy took me to Ritz Camera and I brought home the 60mm 2.8 macro lens!!! After purchasing the lens and getting in the car, I did tear up...in case you were wondering! :) Daddy then took me to Lewis Ginter and we took some pictures around the building (we didn't pay the $10 to walk through the garden). Needless to say, I'm excited about it and can't wait for baby to get here so I can practice on him/her!
Until then, enjoy a few of my most random pictures with my new macro lens!! (I'll post more on my photography blog, too - unless baby comes tonight! :) No comment on this picture:
I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but I'm still having problems with Blogger. I'll confuse you greatly if I relate to you my difficulties, so just pray for me! :) Has anybody else been having any problems with blogger, lately?
I know some of you are dying to know about Mama. Here's a quick update! :-)
Mama's due date was August 27th and, evidently, baby is way too comfy to want to emerge. This is the first baby that has been overdue!! We're all so excited to see little ones whenever they decide to make their appearance!
We gave Mama massages today...along with painting her nails and playing with her hair (she loves when someone runs their fingers through her hair...she literally falls asleep!). It was so much fun to give Mama a little "special treatment" since she rarely sits still long enough for us to do anything. (Another benefit of pregnancy. ;)
On another note, Lydia decided to get into the fingernail polish today. And not just any fingernail polish. The teal blue fingernail polish. I walk in our room (whenever it's quiet and Lydia's gone...it's normally not a good thing!) and I immediately smell fingernail polish. I look over to our mirror and see Lydia sitting on the bench with that guilty look on her face. I walk over and she has the polish all over her legs, on our white carpet (that I was proud of because it was stain-free ;) and the polish is laying sideways, pouring out into one of our drawers. Yeah. So, Lydia was toted downstairs to Mama. That is a definite "no-no" and she knows it! Then I set to cleaning the polish out of our carpet. Nothing worked; I tried Gojo, OxyClean, warm water with soap and even nail polish remover! Yes, I was desperate, but to no avail. Oh well! :)
I don't think there's anything else to report...so goodnight! :)
