I Did It!!!

I am not a big goal setter.
If I want to do something I just do it.
A couple weeks ago, however, I decided that instead of just doing what I want to do, I would set a goal for myself and when I accomplished that goal, then I could do what I wanted to do.
Now I'm rambling. What did I want to do? (I know the suspense is killing you) Well....

I've been wanting this lens for my nikon D5000 for a while now, but I always feel guilty buying things for myself (especially when those things cost a couple hundred dollars). So I set a goal for myself and decided when I met my goal I could buy the lens. 9 days later I bought it!!!! Wahoo!! For once I didn't feel guilty about spending the money because I felt like I earned it.
The lens just came to my doorstep yesterday, so I haven't had too much time to play with it yet. Here are a few shots I've taken so far (keep in mind I still need practice....).

I was trying to read my Bible, but Isabella kept taking it to the fireplace to read for herself! (notice the vent under the curtains blowing air in her hair - so funny!)
This is how I find my child constantly. Eating.
Now the baby's napping, so I'll be the guinea pig.

On a side note, I want to take a minute to thank Allegra from My Lips in Stitches. She sent me a wonderful book this week (actually 3 books) and I am so thankful to her for her kindness and generosity. She has a great blog and a beautiful heart. Check her out sometime. You will be encouraged!
P.S : Don't forget that from now until the end of January a portion of every purchase at Bella Reagli goes to help the people of Haiti!
Pin It!

Really great pictures! I'm so glad you were able to get your lense so quickly :-)
I don't think I ever told you, I did get an extra lensse with mine, the 55-200, I believe it is. It goes to 200, at least. I love it! I wish I could use it all of the time. But, I have to figure out how to use the regular one better, first, lol!
