Wanna save some money Christmas shopping?
Hello dear reader,

I'm giving you your Christmas present early this year.

Last night when I was shopping for a new camera (because mine is all broken and sad and my flickr account is all like Kate!!! Where are you Kate?? You don't upload pictures anymore Kate!! and it makes me sad to only be taking grainy pics with my phone) on ebay, I was also pricing out Wii's (my major Santa gift for the girls this year) and I came across this thing called Microsoft Cashback.

The gist of it is that you sign up for a Microsoft Cashback Account and link it with your paypal account. When you do a search to for something on, the first sponsered result will link you to ebay with an offer to save 25% on qualified purchases.

You have to pay with paypal and 60 days later, you get 25% of the purchase back in your paypal account. It's like a paypal reward system.
I'm so digging this!!
Anyway, in case you were wondering, I bought a Nikon D40x.
My main reason was that The Cake Lady has almost the exact same camera and she is all into cameras and has had hers for like a year or two so she knows how to use it and can help me learn as I am so the point and click kinda gal :) I am so totally not smart when it comes to all the cool things that a camera can do when operated by someone who understands it's capabilities.
The things I am psyched about:
I wanted a DSLR.
I wanted great MPs and I am cool with the ten this one has.
I wanted super fast shutter speed.
I wanted to be able to add lens' (primarily telephoto for shooting pics at the girls games when I am not close but want the shot to be).
Everything else is just icing :)

"I just got done reading the history lessons on your blog (yes, I've been lurking on your blog). All the respect I had for you...has increased, like, tenfold. I don't think I could have done it. To go through what you have and not only still be able to discuss it with such wit and poise, but also to raise those three gorgeous girls. You are truly an inspiration. You are honestly one of the strongest people I have ever known, either online or IRL. Thank you so much." -Stef
