Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday

Inspired by some awesome photos I’ve seen taken by you guys I decided to upgrade my camera from a Canon PowerShot SX150 to a Nikon CoolPix. Not that a camera will make me a better photographer, it will however, (I hope) make my photos pop with less of a need to rely on editing software.

My husband recommended that I go to Cameras etc and take a look at their selection of used cameras of which was extensive, but I was more interested in the Nikon Coolpix P100 on sale that I had seen in the newspaper.

Armed with the advertisement I drove into Newark, to Main Street on the campus of the University of Delaware and fed 4 quarters into the parking meter.  Entering the store I was immediately greeted by Imaging Consultant Todd.  I explained what I wanted, showed him the ad and stated that I had “Liked” them on Facebook hoping for a discount.

Cameras etc

Unfortunately, they didn’t have the advertised model in stock but Todd did show me a higher priced model the P520, but before you scream, “bait and switch”, he didn’t try to push me into purchasing it.  He called their Wilmington store and asked to have one shipped for  arrival the next day.

Nikon Camera

Todd explained all the features on the P520 and how it compared to the P100 so that I would be familiar and comfortable before making the purchase.  He also took time to show me some used Nikon cameras in the same price range but after I took the camera outside, snapped a few pictures I decided then to buy it.

The time and patience that Todd spent in explaining all the features was awesome, I even had to feed two additional quarters into the meter, I see why they have been a successful business since 1977.

Cameras etc.

This camera is an early birthday present to myself and I am looking forward to using it this weekend as we celebrate our 23rd Wedding Anniversary and at the BLMGirls event in DC on the 31st.

EXCUSES…EXCUSES…EXCUSES….

2008 – caregiver to my grandmother

2009 – grandmother passed away

2010 – kicked a 35 year addiction to nicotine

2011 – pre-menopause

2012 – menopause

2013 – no more excuses

The time has come to get serious about this excess weight gain before it gets out of control – no more excuses!  I want to be 152 by the time I am 52 on September 20th!

FRIDAY’s FOODIE FEATURE (a day late)

NUTRISYSTEM

ootd 5 29 13 013

Nutrisytem is a convenient way to lose weight, it’s a program that I’ve used before to successfully lose over 20 lbs, however, didn’t keep it off with all the anxieties plaguing me at the time.  Now that I am living a somewhat stress-free lifestyle, I know I’ll be able to keep the weight off this time.  Nutrisystem teaches portion control and the importance of “good carbs”.  Keeping a daily tracker of food intake, water consumption and exercise also helps me with my weight loss goal. The Nutrisystem plan may be a little pricey but I was able to get a slight discount through my employee benefits program at work.

I had the option to chose menu items al-la-carte style but decided on the standard 28-day fare, which includes dinner items such as spinach ravioli, veggie lasagna  pizza, chicken pot pies; lunch items such as tuna salad, red beans and rice, Kung Pao Noodles, fudge bars; and breakfast items such as cinnamon streusel muffins, oatmeal, banana nut muffins, and whole wheat bagels.

These foods in combination with grocery items are designed to keep me full and satisfied long after each meal.  Snacks and desserts are also included with items like, popcorn, peppermint cookie patty, chocolate chip pudding, and almond bars.  I also ordered the protein shake mix in Vanilla, Chocolate, Coffee and Strawberry which are great morning starters.

On Sunday I’ll shop for the supplemental “Smart Carbs” which take longer to digest, foods like fruit, whole wheat bread, beans, hummus and brown rice.  And “Power Fuels” like eggs, lean meat, fish, cheese, yogurt and nut butters, ie. peanut and almond butter.  So with all the variety of foods, the right portions and combinations this should put me back on the right track!

WISH ME LUCK!

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

Today is actually my Friday as I will officially be on vacation starting at 5:00 p.m. today until next Tuesday- que up the Flintstone’s theme song – YabbaDabbaDoo!!!  I can’t believe it’s the Memorial Day Weekend already, seems like only yesterday it was Easter.  I guess it’s true what they say, the older you get the faster time passes.  Oh and before I have another senior moment – Congratulations to all the parents of the Class of 2013, you did an excellent job and should be very proud of yourself!

Today’s outfit is a floral dress thrifted from GW Boutique and sandals from Payless, which by the way is having a major sale, and don’t forget to show your AAA Card for an additional 10% off.

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

Today is my last day at work until next Tuesday, the 2nd of April and I am counting down the hours!  Looking forward to relaxing but more importantly cleaning out my closets!  Getting ready for the 1st Flea Market of the season and will be gathering unused clothes and household items in order to make a little extra cash.

Maxi Skirt - Boscov's

This is my favorite maxi skirt and I will be keeping it because the print can be paired with a variety of tops and shoes, therefore, it will always be a closet staple.
