New baby....

Two actually.

This is my first new baby. I lurrrrve her! I promised myself that if TheRustedChain sold $X in December, I'd treat myself to a new camera.
We far surpassed the goal. YAY!!
So I splurged. I never spend money on myself. Seriously.
Those who know me in real life are like, "Seriously just go get a haircut already."
So this was a huge deal for me to do.


The other new baby is a bit cuter. And poopier.


This is Ellie.
We wanted a Disney name. Because we have Lilo. And we had Stitch until he ran away over the summer.
So after much discussion the entire family decided on Ellie. It's Carl's wife in Up, one of our favorite movies!


I could've resisted but The Man couldn't. He's a complete sap when it comes to puppies.
So we adopted her.



I'm so grateful for hardwood floors throughout the house.

What a cute pup, looks like an aussie. Best dogs ever, we have one. Oh how I would love a camera like that. My extra was a handy new phone that allows me to video chat with the fam when I travel since I have to do that alot with work. Love it, enjoy the puppy

Kristi said...

I'm sure you are loving your new camera. I have the 7D and Love it! I got a 50mm f1.8 lens for Christmas and love it!!

The puppy is sooooo cute!

Kelly said...

Aw, Ellie is such a cutie! Is she a border collie? I have a BC and her name is Brandi. Such a wonderful breed who needs to run on a daily basics otherwise she will drive us batty. BC are considered working dogs.

Be sure to take loads of pictures of her as she grows!

Thanks guys!

I do have a 5mm lens that I want to put on it. Haven't had a chance yet though...

Sylvia, CONGRATULATIONS!!! That's so exciting!

Beki - TheRustedChain said...

Oh and yes, she's a Border Collie mix. We're not sure what she's mixed with though.

Suzanne said...

Congrats on both babies!! Ellie is so cute! We tend to get the older drop-off dogs so it has been a long time since I was around a puppy!! She will have so much fun exploring around the house!

jacjewelry said...

What a sweet little face! Love her. We, too, adopted a new baby at the shelter recently - a baby girl cat. :)

KayzKreationz said...

They're both adorable. Especially the puppy. :) But the camera is great looking too. Congrats.

amy d said...

i may be having a little twinge of camera jealousy...
that ellie is a doll! i bet she is loving the snow. my brothers border collie would rather sleep in the snow than in his straw covered dogloo! my new baby is a silhouette...LOVING IT!

Who could resist that little face?! She's so fluffy I'm gonna die! What does Lilo think of the new intruder?
