Hello livejournal!

So far, life has been busy. I am now behind by three weddings, after shooting an awesome improv wedding on Saturday. Andy was a guest and he got so drunk!

I'm still adjusting to the money thing... Yesterday I was online shopping at modcloth.com, and then the shopping cart was over $200, and I started to talk myself out of each clothing item until I didn't buy anything. Then I went to a vintage clothing store today and found a nice cheap dress.

And yet I just spent $900 on a new-to-me camera, the D7000. It was a necessity though, Andy is starting to shoot with me more often, and I don't like the quality of photos from the D80. Ah, my first DSLR, how I used to think you were the best camera ever! I can't wait for the D7000 to arrive since it does HD video! Maybe I'll make video posts.

My main recreation is boardgames, and I'm currently addicted to castleville, a facebook zynga game.

However, I really need to start dancing more and doing more physical stuff.

I miss shopping so much. :( It's a good thing that I've always loved vintage and thrift shopping because that's all I've been able to afford to do lately. I saw the dress that you bought on Twitter (I'm such a stalker) and it's really pretty. I think you did the right thing. :)

I used the D7000 a few times to test it out before we bought some for the school I used to work at, and I really liked it. The video feature is cool! After using it for a bit I really wanted to own one.

I still shop at anthropologie too.. but i think it's my only clothing splurge place now, when before i would shop far more!

so.. I wanted the D800, but it kept getting delayed. and i really need a better backup camera. The d7000 seems like a good compromise until the d800 comes out!

Yeah, I think that by the time I can afford a new camera I'll be able to buy the D800 used! Haha. But I would really like to have it. Because the only thing that prevents my D700 from being perfect is the fact that it doesn't shoot video. Oh, and the fact that all of the rubber bits around the grip area is coming off. :/

My other wedding photographer friend with a D700 is having the same issue. Nikon wants to charge like $200 for the repair. Grr.

Anything you can deduct off your taxes doesn't count. :) (I have this argument with Josh repeatedly about my $500 printer/scanner/copier. It's deductible baby!)
