Wishful Wed ....Santa



The wonderful Teresa - from Blooming on Bainbridge, spiced up the Wishful Wednesday button this week, and I don't think we could be any more festive to bring in 2010?!?!  If you aren't already a follower of hers, go visit her asap!  She is definitely a top contender in my book of lovely ladies, and it doesn't hurt that she's from the south living in the Pacific Northwest!  It's people like her who brighten my day (as well as everyone else's), are brought into my life for a reason, and I get oh so excited every time I see an e-mail pop in from.  Plus, Doogan and my pups are long lost friends, and maybe one day I can cook as perfectly as her!


Okay, moving on, this past week's topic was dedicated to the last Wishful Wednesday for 2009 ...


'I wish' .... Santa would have remembered 
my Canon Rebel XSi was on my list!

I became obsessed with this camera after playing with Arrie and Jordan's and Abby's, and I have been dropping little hints to only be shot down each time by the hubby.  He says we don't need a big fancy camera like this right now, but when we have a little bun in the oven then by ole' means it's reasonable.  If you say so ......    


Abby and I both had the first model of the Canon Elph, then we both upgraded to the recent version, and I would have really loved to upgrade again to this beauty!  So, at least I know I have something to look forward to once I am pregnant!!!  Just throwing that out there -- hah!

Hubby told me the SAME EXACT THING when I told him I wanted a Canon Rebel - why do I have to wait for such a nice camera UNTIL we have kiddies?! Gah!

I have to agree with your hubby...I want a fancy camera too but I don't really see the point at this stage of my life!

Llama said...

I too would love loove that camera! I think that is a wonderful baby in the oven gift! I think Ill save it when that time comes for me too!

Heather said...

I have this camera and you have good reason to be obsessed. It is AHHHHmazing!!! Def purchase one soon if you can. Definitely a great investment!

Classy Fab Sarah said...

I was going to write a Wishful Wed post today about this exact same thing.

So all I have to say is DITTO!!

Caroline said...

Sorry you didn't get the camera. I keep shooting my husband down when he talks about a video camera. I said that we can wait until we have a baby. Maybe you'll get it for Valentine's.

Weeksie50 said...

Oh- I want one of those too!

I thought I would play along.. : )

Mrs EyeCanSee said...

That is a beauty of a camera. I've all of a sudden had the urge to get a big fancy one too, even though we JUST bought a new digital last March for our Honeymoon. Oh well...according to your hubby's theory, now that I have a bun in the oven I can have one! Right?!?

katie + bret said...

awww, :( Poor thing. I got the camera I asked for because Santa and I bought it together! HA!

Just go out and get it woman! Do it! Do it!

Jenn said...

That is a great camera! You'll love it one you get it!!!

Brown Girl said...

I wish I would have gotten a camera too, I'm thinking about asking for one for my birthday! ;)

Cassie said...

I'm thinking about getting a new camera soon and a Canon Rebel is at the top of my list! It is a big purchase though...

I hope you get one soon! (I guess that means I'm hoping you get pregnant soon-ha!)

Rachel said...

I've got a Nikon DSLR (which I looooove!) and I washoping Santa would bring me a new lens this year. No lens :( However, thanks to some generous money gifts from grandparents, it looks like I'll be ordering it today!

Here's hoping that your hubby has picked up on your hints and you'll get one next year for Christmas (if not sooner!) :)

Juliana said...

Wow I have been thrown off all week. I posted this yesterday because I thought it was WEDNESDAY. Anyhow, it is posted but two blogs ago. I work hard to have this hair color ha ha

DeDe said...

Can you give the reason that you would like to learn how to use it BEFORE there is a bun in the oven? I pulled that one this summer. Beware, once you get it, it makes you more fertile. At least it did for me!

Jax said...

I think that's teh camera my friends got each other (a couple) for xmas when they were preggo! Kinad funny! :)

d.a.r. said...

Ooohhh fancy camera!!! I was told I need to wait until we are expecting, haha!

Carol said...

Oh man, I was a slacker and didn't do a post for today. But that camera is awesome! Wish list for next year!

Teresa said...

Got the Camera...got the 70-200 mm lens...now I've got my sites set on 17-85 mm lens!
Oh...and I need a ZOOOOOOOOM lens...a real close up ZOOOOOOer for all of my blog shots!
Agree with DeDe...you need to learn the camera before the distraction of the little Smith comes along!
Let me see...
wonder how long I'm going to wear this BIG smile on my face?
I'm sure I'll still be BEAMING with glee when Greg arrives home tonight!
Thanks for the oh so sweet kisses you blew across The Sound Kelsey!
Love you...love you!
XXOOXX

I pined after this camera for about a year and then one day I decided that if I wanted it, I was going to have it. I kept searching for the best deals and when one too good to pass up came my way, I told hubby I was getting it and I did. Not only that, it came with two lenses at a steal. He was totally fine with it and was actually impressed with my shopping skills!

Besides, you need to practice on how to get the best pictures with it BEFORE there's the pitter-patter of little feet, right? LOL.

Ps.. I'm super lame (go ahead and laugh) but I'm trying to time my 1000th (whoa) post with my resolutions this year.. haha.. sooo I didnt do Wishful Wed. (Yes, I am lame. I'll keep repeating this but it wont make it any better..) :) BUT I kinda wish Santa had remembered a Wii. I didnt really have it on my list b/c as I told Eric, I'd rather have one if we lived together (we both want one). But, after Christmas, I thought "Wow, I really shoulda asked for that... Hmm" *sigh* :) But very blessed otherwise. Santa was too good to me.

Trish said...

sorry to here that you didn't get the camera. I have a son and I still don't have one this nice!!!!

...have to go a have talk with the hubs on that one!

Abbie said...

I'm dying for that camera as well...mine sucks so bad! But what I really wanted was a Wii, oh well! Maybe I'll surprise Ryan with it for Valentine's Day!

pocket full of pink said...

Oohhhh a Canon Rebel!! How I adorea thee! Yes, watch and all, it would have been QUITE nice to receive this beauty as well. :o)

Jamie said...

Your comments about the camera and the bun in the oven are too funny because Kyle and I agreed on the same concept. I was pregnant over Christmas and we decided to splurge on all the electronics - a fancy digital SLR camera by Nikkon and an HD video camera by Sony. I will say they were on of the best investments we made prior to the babies arrival. There is nothing better to capture precious moments than having a great camera and video camera to do the job. Plus, look on the bright side, technology becomes dated so quickly that you would want the top of the line when you are pregnant. Just wait it out and something better will come along when your time comes.

Jenny DB said...

OK So are you saying that you guys are trying??? ust asking...

Love from Texas said...

oh, but you need your rebel NOW so you can get good practice in before the little one is here ;) i'll be rooting for you! i got one last year, and got a new telephoto lens for it this year. i love it!

Abby Kreck said...

Crazy Santa...I can't believe he forgot to get you a canon rebel! Just another excuse to have a baby!!! Anything for a rebel right?! HA! I can't wishful wednesday because we are on the road to the lake...you can guest post for me if you like :)

Naturally Caffeinated Family said...

Obee Designs said...

Hi Kelsey,
I just wanted to come and visit and say hi. You and your blog are so cute! I saw you had commented to Libbie at The Middlest Sister blog so I thought I would check it out. I'm glad I did,your blog is adorable:)
So sorry to hear Santa didn't have a camera in his bag for you this year. I dropped mine and broke it on Christmas eve. So, it seems we will both be without a camera for a while... boo hoo.
I will come back to visit you again. By the way, your doggies are so cute!!
XoXo
Gail

Elizabeth said...

I got a Nikon, and it is great. I love it, and can use it for EVERYTHING!!!! Hope you get it sometime soon!!

krislyn. said...

Once your hubby see's the incredible pictures that turn out, he will have wished he would have surprised you with one sooner!! ha. =)

OceanDreams said...

Love this, wish Santa remembered my ipod phone! I wanted it badly, but at least I got a sewing machine so I shouldn't complain!

Jenny DB said...

umm 3 of the blogs i visited all 3 in that order all had engagement rings listed. oh dear :(

Annie said...

after reading your post on reader i went and researched this camera! pretty sure i want it now as well!!! it is a reasonable price and has a million awesome reviews! i need it, my fiance might compromise that a little one is needed as well ;)
i hope you and i both get it some day!!

LG said...

I have a big DLR camera and It does take beautiful pics, but I have to say it also weighs a ton and is harder to tote around, pack etc. Comes with big cords adn chargers too! I am currently looking into the Elph. I have not had one since 2004 !
Also be prepared to read the instruction manuel should you get one!

perfectly paisley said...

Well I guess you'll have to start cookin' up a baby! :o)
Gosh the things guys make us do for the things we want! hehe
Hope your Christmas was great even if you didn't get the camera!

Tiffany said...

Girl, my camera has been on my list for 2 years now. After enbough begging I finally got my way! ha! I hope you get yours soon!!

Happy 2010!!

Bethany said...

I didn't do the Wishful Wednesday post, but I found you through Brown Girl Blogs and just had to come visit. LOVE the name Kelsey...it's my little girl's name! :)

ModernMom said...

Ohh I love your wishful Wednesday!
Have to tell you that is the camera I have and you are right to keep in on your wish list. I love it almost as much as chocolate and shoes!

Kristin said...

Santa didn't remember my Rebel either DESPITE it being on my blog post wish list. What up with that? Maybe our Santas haven't been reading our blogs? ah ha ha. Love Teresa and love you! Happy new year lady!

Lana said...

I may need to look into this camera! My husband and I would like a nicer one before our baby gets here! Thanks for the recommendation!
