AH the new 50mm lens came today! I LOVE it. Isn't this picture of Josh's eye amazing? It took me literally two seconds. I'm going to enjoy things like being able to get close to my subject, and the superior amount of light it lets in. It's much better quality than the one that came with the camera (we bought it on eBay, so it just came with a knock-off brand lens that did the job, but you know..). It was used for both of these pictures (Josh took the cute one of Jen). Man, I'm just excited about it :) Josh is looking forward to using it for a video. And I'm looking forward to playing with it in the upcoming days.
Isn't Jen pretty? :) We had a hot date with her this afternoon. We saw Contagion (it's good and it sparked an interesting conversation on the way home). Spending time with Jen is seriously our favorite... She's family.
And then tonight we had the pleasure of hanging out with a very fun group of people at the Perry's house tonight! Everyone contributed to dinner, and we had a great time laughing and getting to know each other. It's also like a prayer group, which I'm excited about. I enjoyed meeting new people... and it was awesome.
Well, it's Thursday, so you know what that means! I didn't keep a running list of gifts this week, so it's not as extensive as the last couple of weeks' lists. Whoops!
