Big Thank You...

I shared with you guys last week that I won a giveaway for a Canon EOS Rebel T3i but I wanted send out a special thanks to the ladies for being so nice and providing the chance of making one of my dreams come true. So many people have this camera that I feel foolish saying that it is something that I would not have been able to afford for a LONG time, but it's the truth. This camera was something that I wanted SO bad and I was completely shocked when I found out I won. 

I found out last Monday that I won & today I got the camera in the mail. How awesome is that? I didn't expect to get it so quickly! I want to first off thank Jamielyn at i heart nap time again for hosting the giveaway. This is the first time I have won a giveaway so I got to experience the full effect of excitement, disbelief, and of course I got something that I always wanted. Kuddos to the bloggers that work to host these giveaways because it really does make a difference in peoples lives {it sounds so sappy but it is so true}. I also want to say a huge thank you to Amy at Today's Mama. She was the one who contacted me and worked with me on shipping and validation. She got the prize to me so fast. I think there were 8 other winners from the giveaway so for her to work so quickly to get all of our stuff finished was awesome!

So of course as soon as I got the package, I ripped it open and took a 

{I probably should have edited this but I was so excited I skipped that whole step & uploaded it to facebook}

I immediately charged the batteries and started playing with it. I have not read the manuals or watched the handy little disks yet but I will get to it. Here are some snaps I took while playing around:

{Someone was shocked LOL}

None of these are edited and are straight from the camera. I am seriously in love with this camera. I have so much to learn and I can not wait to start using other settings.
Check out the ladies sites. They not only have awesome giveaways but awesome posts about recipes, crafts, parenting info, and so much more.

  1. It is so exciting to win things! I am so glad that you were able to win, especially since you really wanted it. I'm your newest follower. You're blog is super cute.

    1. It is so exciting! I literally have only won something once in my life before this and it was a $50 scratch off ticket. I thought I was excited then but it did not even compare to the heart failure I experienced with this LOL thank you for the sweet comment and the follow back :)

  2. OMG So Jelly!! Don't fill silly saying that you wanted it so badly and could not afford it. I am in the same boat! I have been telling myself for years I would buy it for myself as it is my dream to have one! My grandmother buy's the newest version for herself every time but hangs on to the olds for her shoots. It's my dream to be a photographer one day. If I would allow me to put myself first and just buy a darn camera for myself! Congrats to you!!! So happy for you!

    1. Thank you so much for your sweet comment. I swear it had to be fate that I won this thing lol it is the exact camera and lens that I have had bookmarked on my computer and look at everyday. I wrote about it a few days before I won the camera. It was all so crazy and I am so grateful!
