happy day!


If you were looking for a mushy Mother's Day post, this ain't it.


Yeah, yeah, I love my mom, and she loves me, and I love my daughter, and she loves me, yada yada, never knew my heart could be so full, yada yada, fully appreciated my mother only when I became one, yada yada...

But more importantly, where is my gift?

I've dropped enough hints, subtle and otherwise, for a whole month, so I'm sure the message was loud and clear!



Sleep late, breakfast in bed, cuddles and cards. Lovely. WHERE IS MY GIFT?


Ahhhhh, here it is.... WEEEEE!


It's even prettier than I imagined :)

Lunch outside? Sure... Ohhh, what a nice surprise!!



One more quick shot, from a different angle

Douggy, in his usual sun-coma/raptured state.


She's too fast for me... always was.


Ahh, a slower subject... WAIT, we have snails????












I mean, come on! If it does this with an orange, the possibilities are ENDLESS! (Gawd, I love this camera!)



Will come back to this in a bit, right now I'm too psyched for instructions


Okay, okay, I'll go shoot something else. And, for the record, I'm NOT demented (not yet)








Et tu, Brutus? Fine! 








I believe this could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship...



So, how was your Mother's Day? What did you give/get?

Aw, how nice. I got nothing. Not even a card. Oh wait, my youngest finally gave me a card at 9:00pm she made on the computer. And they kept looking to me to make dinner plans. *sigh*

Aww man, I'm so happy you got it! You are going to love it, although I can tell you already do. My instruction manual lives on my bed stand, but I can honestly say I haven't read it. haha.

Love you gf! Happy mothers day!

There is nothing better than a nice camera when you are a blogger. We still take to the iphone when eating out though!

That is such a good present and it works too. LOL. Those are some great pictures that it takes. The cats did not come up with a present for Mother's day but that is all right. We understand. Take care.

I saw your gift and had to suppress a Homer drool

 
At 5/14/12, 12:13 PM , Blogger Megan@MondayMorningMusings said...

Hahaha, the maybe the cats needed a nudge? I know I gave plenty to get this.

 
At 5/14/12, 12:14 PM , Blogger Megan@MondayMorningMusings said...

Your pics are awesome Zoelee, had no idea you used an iphone. How come mine doesn't do that? Will need to investigate...

 
At 5/14/12, 12:15 PM , Blogger Megan@MondayMorningMusings said...

deja vu :)

 
At 5/14/12, 12:16 PM , Blogger Megan@MondayMorningMusings said...

Very kind of you to say, Karen, but I am a complete amateur and not a good one (but I'm working on it). Can't wait to see you in action in NY so I can pick up a few pointers :)

 
At 5/14/12, 12:16 PM , Blogger Megan@MondayMorningMusings said...

Thanks Darcie, it's exactly what I wanted! How did he know that? LOL

 
At 5/14/12, 12:17 PM , Blogger Megan@MondayMorningMusings said...

Norman (the old poop) doesn't usually get gifts right, but he hit this one out of the ballpark. Believe me, I'm drooling too :)

Oh, what fun! I am so jealous. I can't wait to see all of the wonder that comes from your new toy.

 
At 5/14/12, 2:23 PM , Blogger Megan@MondayMorningMusings said...

Thanks Lou, me too :)

Yay for you. You got your camera. So happy for you... can't wait to see all the pictures you will share. Already love the ones that are in this post!!! :)

 
At 5/14/12, 3:35 PM , Blogger Megan@MondayMorningMusings said...

Weee! Susi, I've started taking some pics for your instagram meme. Now to learn how to upload to instragram.... :)

Oh you lucky dog you!! I sorta kinda got to sleep in...and hubby made a great breakfast. but gifts were of the slightly still sticky, tacky dripping glue variety (which of course, melts me heart always) and not the all "look, so shiny" variety.

clearly I need to polish up my husband whisperer technique some more.

 
At 5/15/12, 4:26 AM , Blogger Hilary said...

Great pictures!! Enjoy... I love Emily's expression :-)

 
At 5/15/12, 7:00 AM , Blogger Brenda Youngerman said...

What a great post and great gift... I want one!!!!
I didn't get anything. I suppose that happens when all the chicks have flown the coop!

 
At 5/15/12, 10:53 AM , Blogger Megan@MondayMorningMusings said...

Woof woof :) [and yes Rory, you do need to hone that technique, just like everything else, practice makes perfect]

 
At 5/15/12, 10:53 AM , Blogger Megan@MondayMorningMusings said...

I know, Hilary, it was priceless.

 
At 5/15/12, 10:55 AM , Blogger Megan@MondayMorningMusings said...

You have to put it out there, Brenda. I've found that if I don't heavily hint at what I want, I get (if anything) kitchen/cooking stuff-- which I love, usually, but wanted this instead, this year.

Alex takes them and then uses all sorts of apps to edit them... It's beyond me! :)

Damnit! This is so way better than dirt! I love that camera. I covet it. Damnit! Now I'm a sinner! Well I may as well give up and follow you. Hey. I can show my hubby pictures from your camera! Guilt, the sly neighbour of the covet!

 
At 5/15/12, 9:30 PM , Blogger Megan@MondayMorningMusings said...

Hahaha, I can safely say I would not covet dirt as a present :)
I blame Karen, she started it!

LOVELY! I can't wait to see all the photos! I got a Starbucks card and a certificate for a mani/pedi. See... it only took 2 months of them hearing "man, my heels are a MESS. I sure could use a pedicure" for them to get the hint. LOL

 
At 5/16/12, 9:21 AM , Blogger Megan@MondayMorningMusings said...

That's the spirit, Beckey. Done like a true pro -- who appreciates that subtle hints may just be way too subtle for some. Enjoy the mani-pedi :)

 
At 5/16/12, 9:24 AM , Blogger Megan@MondayMorningMusings said...

Put me down for a lesson, I definitely need one!

 
At 5/17/12, 4:00 AM , Blogger Laine Griffin said...

Awesome camera! OMG, that look on Emily's face is PRICELESS!!

 
At 5/17/12, 9:13 AM , Blogger Megan@MondayMorningMusings said...

I know right? She has a very expressive face... if I didn't know about the pitfalls, I'd recommend acting as a very appropriate career for her.
