Dear Diary

Oh, internet. I have so much to tell you!

Thing 1:

I MET MARTHA STEWART. No shit, y'all. It's true! Well, I didn't really "meet" her. It's not like we chatted and compared prison poncho patterns. But I did listen to her speak on entertaining here in DC and then she signed my copy of her new book. I told her that her pen was a very pretty green. The end.  She didn't offer me a job but she also didn't sue me for stealing her name for my blog. So I guess it was a draw.

Thing 2:

I upgraded my camera body! I'm so fancy now. It's a Canon 7D and it is fanfriggintastic. The little joystick-like focus button is blowing my mind. The only downside is that it makes me lust for good glass (lenses) even more, but I think I can make do. For now. Did you hear that sound? I'm pretty sure it was Chris winging our check book at my head.

Look at my cute little baby Rebel on the right! It's like his cooler, cuter older brother is home from college.

Thing 3:

I am totally and completely ready for Christmas! Not ready in the sense that I am actually ready, with my cards sent and my presents wrapped. But ready in the sense that December is officially welcome in our house. Space has been cleared for our tree. Our wreath is hanging on the door (okay, mailbox. And three feet next to it is a super naturally hardy pumpkin). Presents have been selected, if not wholly bought. Official Peanut Christmas photo has been shot.

That's not him. That's me. I also went back to brown hair. I'm not sure that deserves it's own Thing, though.

Congrats on meeting Martha! How awesome is that?

I didn't notice the naked-look of the picture on Facebook. When I see it larger like this I see what you meant. Risque! :)
