So I got a new camera...

Not perfect, but getting better...

So my dad gave me a new camera the other day (THANKS, Dad!!) and it's pretty darned fancy. He used to photograph professionally and it's one of his older Nikons, which still blows the socks off the two cameras I was using before (I mean, ridiculously blows the socks off my old cameras.)

It's going to take me a while to dial things in (literally), but the pic above was one of the photos that I think looks pretty decent after hours of experimenting with different settings and lighting scenarios yesterday (my full review of that polish coming this week).

I'm taking the rest of the day to get myself better acquainted with my new camera, and also I just plain need a break from blogging. The drugstore sales for this week will be up either tonight or tomorrow. I'm sorry but after the constant Black Friday/Cyber Monday round-up updates, I need to take a little break from the bloggy-blog and "step away from the mouse" for just a bit.

Thanks to everyone who continues to leave comments and updates on the Black Friday/Cyber Monday Round-up (and also on the You Tell Me page). If you haven't checked the comments on those posts lately, there are new sales and info that I have not added to the round-up there. Oh, and if you know of any additional Cyber Monday sales, please do leave your info on this post (I appreciate that so much!).

Hope you're all enjoying what's left of the holiday weekend! I'll be back tomorrow (hopefully with prettier pictures than you're used to seeing around here).
