(New post under slideshow)
YAY! I finally got my new digital camera in and I LOVE it!! We opted to get one that had a few features that we had been wanting (like higher MP and zoom than our previous camera had, high speed shutter that shoots continuousely, ect.). Neways - I've been trying to figure it out today and am having so much fun using it! Here's just a few pics of Rauly after waking up from her nap...I promise the next post will be more interesting! :)

Ok, so instead of doing a new post I figured I'd just write this under Rauly's pictures. I know I don't talk about our business much, but it has been an active part of our daily life for the past few months. Chad has been pursuing it very hard and I am just so proud of all his hard work! I wanted to praise God as well as Chad's efforts...we got some great news today! Chad had a meeting with a company called K.I. (one of the largest manufacturers for premium contract office interiors). Chad had presented a business plan to the East Florida district manager about 2 weeks ago and found out today during their meeting that their company has decided that Elliott Eason Office Furniture would be a great representative of their product line! This is HUGE and such a blessing - Chad and I are so excited about what the future holds! Chad had a really big day today - not only did he go to his job as a teacher, but he also made an install for our business this morning, had a successful business meeting this afternoon and he met with a man this afternoon who contacted him about advertisement! Crazy busy, but so so good! Just wanted to share the good news!

Great pics! I've thought about getting another camera in the next year or so. My Kodak Easyshare has been great, but I want to get a really nice, professional one next time. What kind did you get? I need to be researching.

Lindsey, thanks for sharing those pics of Rauly! They are so good. I love the ones in the chair (or sofa)where she is just "lazing" around. See you Sunday.

Lindsey said...

Hey Katie - it sounds like you might have the same camera that we had...Kodak Easyshare DX6490? The camera we just purchased is Canon Power Shot S3Is. It has interchangeable lenses (which we like...makes it feel more professional), has 6.0 MP (which isn't extremely high, however is good enough to blow pics up to poster size), and is 12x optical zoom. The camera has a flip out LCD screen which prevents it from getting scratched, and the menu has about as many options as I think a person could possibly want! If you want anymore info on it - just ask! :)

Nancy - we're looking forward to seeing ya'll on Sunday!!

I love the pics. They are sooooo good. I love the ones of Rauly in the chair. They are casual but really good of her. She is such a cutie.
Hope you had a good day and more eventful than earlier...you were cracking me up.

Lindsey, that's great news!! I thought the meeting was tomorrow, so I was surprised to see that things have already been worked out--I'm so excited for you both!

I'm so happy to hear that your business is starting to take off. Yea! I adore the picture of Rauly with the sun shining on her. That camera is awesome! What kind is it? I love it!

Lindsey said...

Melis - my day didn't get all that much more eventful - it was good though! A massage, huh?...hope you and the bun thoroughly enjoyed it!

Jenny - Chad's meeting was origonally scheduled for tomorrow but they ended up moving it up to today. C-ya Friday - Shep can't wait to see you! :)

Shauri - Thx for the compliments on the pics,...the comment I left earlier for Katie tells what type of camera it is. Hope you're doing good!

Great to hear about the good business deals! I've been looking into getting a better camera too. Probably not as nice as the one you got but mine is just not that great for indoor or bright sun. Anyway ... thanks for looking at Kayden's pics ... she is a cutie:)

Congrats on the business deal! For those of us who don't know, you ought to write a blog about what, exactly, your business is. Or have you already done that? I could have missed it. Anyway, I'm happy all is going well. Also, we have an EasyShare ??7100, I think. It has 5 mp and 10X optical zoom, which is good, but since I've dropped it a few times, the quality isn't as good as it used to be. But, until my JuicePlus business takes off, getting a camera isn't going to happen. My Kodak will due just fine for awhile. Enjoy your Canon--and don't drop it!

Lindsey, that is great news! Linda had shared a little bit of it with me the other night, but I did not realize how significant it was. I know God is working His plan and you guys will be blessed. See ya' Sunday.
