$1,000 Weekend!

This has been an expensive weekend - my camera that I adored - broke a few months ago and I was hoping that it could be fixed for a reasonable cost. Sadly, it was going to cost over $300.00 just to fix the camera so I decided to just buy a brand new one, with an extended warrantee, which came in over $700! I love taking pictures! The camera will be used often and I am glad I purchases a new camera - I have been missing out on some great photos and I am looking forward to getting back into the world of taking great photos of San Francisco, friends and most importantly Zach and Paul!

I also had to get new glasses this weekend. My eyes are not the best, my eye doctor recommended me wearing Progressive lenses since my eye muscles are getting very weak. So I got some cool designer glasses that are reminiscent of the 1940s/1950s. I love them! It's amazing how a pair of glasses can completely change your look. The glasses were worth the $300.00.

Now I have to start repairing my bank account!

Everything happens at once, doesn't it? The new glasses look great. I am due for a new pair myself. I wear contacts 95% of the time, so I always put off the glasses.

I agree about the camera. I love taking photos and a great camera helps!

I'm due for a new pair and plan on going to the Optometrist this month...I was actually planning on getting something very similar to yours...so, if we're ever in the same room together, one of us is going to have to suffer.

Don't want to pull a Shakira/P!nk.
