Day #173: New Camera & MEGA Giveaway

Happy Monday friends!!

It's my fourth day working in the very, busy, flu-invested emergency room. Whew, it's been a long weekend.

If you're new here, you might be curious why I title every blog entry with the day #. Well, I started writing this blog back in July. I vowed to write in it everyday for one whole year (read my first entry here).

Why you ask? This isn't my first blog. It is the first blog I have written in for more than a couple months. Which is my eyes, makes it a success. Anyways, I have been naming the title of the blog with date so I know where I am at. Almost half-way there! Once I hit the year mark, I plan on setting more "blog hours", like most bloggers do. 

Let me tell you, it's hard to think of things to write about everyday since most of my days are kind of boring. 

In other news, I purchased a camera today. Sort of. At work we are awarded points. These points are given when you receive patient praise, joining committees, etc. Well, I had some built up so I bought an Olympus - VR-340 16.0-Megapixel Digital Camera. It's definitely an upgrade from my current digital camera.

It's not the camera I ultimately want, but it will work and hopefully well enough to start my fashion blog. I looked up reviews online and it seems to be well received and all reviews are good. I will let you know what I think after I get it!  I had enough points left over to get a tripod. Wee!
