I spy a pretty package

Oh how I love my sweet hubby!!  It’s actually his birthday tomorrow, but I get my birthday present early.  Smile  When you have a little one that takes all the attention, it’s nice to be spoiled rather than to spoil the little man.  special delivery (1 of 1)

First off, I love taking pictures….not professionally by all means, but I love taking pictures of my family, friends…events.  Let’s just say, I definitely have graduated from the disposable (aka college days) cameras to my new BFF DSLR camera that I have.  Unfortunately, I have been lugging it around in my video camera bag that’s like considered ancient now.  Or, I have been toting it in my everyday bag that’s great, but what if…I drop my bag and boom…there goes my camera? 

Anyhoo…that’s when I discovered the camera bags at Jo Totes.  Wow is all I can say.  Affordable and WAY Cute bags.  Smile I have been dreaming about one of their bags that they carry for about 4 or 5 months now.  Well, recently they introduced a new bag and I just immediately fell for it!

Say hello To Betsy.  (that’s actually the name of this bag) Isn’t she pretty?  I love my hubby!!  My camera with lens attached, 2 others lens (35mm and 55-200mm), my wallet, lip gloss, my playsport video and my phone all fit in there.  I could jam a lot of other things as well if I needed too.  Also, there is a back pocket that an IPAD or Kindle can fit in.  Yep…I’m trying to swing that for Christmas, wish me luck!

Birthday celebrations with family

We went to King this weekend to celebrate everyone who has birthdays in September and October.  So, mom asked that I make a cake and well, my niece Yasmine said it reminded her of a circus cake.  Which is actually fitting, lol.
