Meet Miss Chica - She's so adorable with her tongue hanging out... and it is, ALWAYS hanging out! My sweet friends Chris and Rachelle were deployed to Hawaii and are now back in the continental United States. They are Chica's peoples. :)

somebody click the shutter." - Ansel Adams
I got home from work last Friday to a box waiting at my door!! I knew my birthday and Christmas present was going to arrive soon because Shantel and Dad kept picking on me about it!!! I opened it and found a pink John Deere T-shirt that I have been wanting for SO long! And under it was this amazing antique camera. I thought "HOW COOL"! Shantel knew how much I wanted to start collecting them!!!! And then I found the card and read it.... and immediately started sobbing (and continued to do so for 45 minutes).... this camera was my Grandpa Schraut's!!! Seriously, I couldn't have asked for such a great gift. I was always sad that I never had anything of my late grandparents and now I do! ♥ ♥ I love you Dad and Shantel! And, you are right, this is the perfect start to my collection!
So today, my dad shared with me that I was holding the camera incorrectly. He remembered his dad, my grandpa, holding it down near this stomach and looking in the little window on the top (and side) as he took a photo. This proves know much I do not know about vintage cameras... but I still love this picture of me anyways! :) And oh how I love this little thing!! My heart beams with joy! :)

A couple months ago, I bought Jeff a Groupon for a local sushi place! Since sushi can be kinda spendy, it was a fabulous deal $20 for $40! He used it today and brought home some crazy looking sushi!!! There was no way I could pass up photographing this beauty (can you sense my sarcasm?)! (I'm not a fan of sushi... at all.)
