New Camera!

I have always loved taking pictures, but now that I am married I have really wanting to start taking more pictures so we can document our lives together! I have always been really creative too, and have gotten really good at editing pictures so I figured I need to take the next step and just get a good camera!

Also, since my mother-in-law owns a scrapbooking company... I need good pictures to scrapbook!


Aaron bought me a new camera!

It's a Cannon Rebel T2i.... it came with two different lenses, a beautiful camera bag, and all the other little gadgets. Aaron's Aunt Lynette helped us pick it out. I know quite a bit about basic camera taking. I took a black and white manual developing class awhile back, so I know a lot about your basic "how a camera works" type of a thing. BUT I have a lot to learn about this camera, and the different lenses since it is all digital. We are in Mountain Home, AR visiting Aaron's extended family right now, so I plan on practicing with my new camera this weekend. There are lots of cute kids around to take pictures of!

I'm really excited about being able to take lots of good quality pictures of our extended families, me and Aaron, and then our future kids .... eventually.... ;).

Maybe this will help me keep up on our blog more often, too!


Date Nights!

Ever since we have been married, we have had a date night on Friday nights. Lately we decided to start doing themed date nights!

Here is a quick recap of a couple of them:

Italian Theme

I didn't take any pictures this night, but we ate dinner at our favorite Italian restaurant: Napoli's. While we were waiting for our dinner we read some trivia about Italy! After dinner we were too full to go get Gelato, but it IS delicious so we may have to do that one for a different Italian date night. For our after dinner entertainment we watched a couple of episodes of Top Gear which is our favorite car show. Now...while the show is British....they have lots of Italian cars that we like so we counted that as part of our Italian theme!

Disney Theme

This was just last weekend. As of last Saturday, we have been married for 6 awesome months! For those of you who don't know, we spent our honeymoon at Disneyland. We LOVED it. We had both been before, but it was so much fun to be together. We can't wait to go back again!

We ate dinner at our favorite steakhouse- Colton's!

We realize we are pretty goofy, but we like to take pictures of each other and be silly :) I don't know how I could EVER be bored married to Aaron!

After dinner we watched "Ratatouille". It was awesome. We love Disney movies!

This coming weekend we are doing an outdoor theme! Now that I have an awesome camera, I will take a lot more pictures!
