CARRIGAN IS HERRREEEE!!!!!!!!

Omgosh loves, my beautiful Carrigan has finally arrived in my arms safe and sound. After much turmoil, drama, and frustration she is finally home where she belongs. 

Don't remember Carrigan? Check back here.



I tell ya guys, getting her here was probably one of the most frustrating things.. EVER.

{Word of advice, never ever ever ever ever EVVVVER order anything from butterfly photo.}

BUT(!) none of that matters now..  
Carrigan is here to stay! 

I think I am already close to maxing out my SD card, so I thought I would share a few ((very amateur)) photos! 

Oh, and there is sort of a lot on here. 
You can't tell I'm excited at all.............. 
{drip, sarcasm, drip}

PS... You can also clearly tell I was wanting to take pictures 
of anything/everything by the randomness of the subjects. 







What did you think?!
I can't wait to take more picture for the Saturday photo swap!
I know I have talked about it before, but guys... you REEEAAALLLY should join my friends and me in our little game :) I LOVE seeing what everyone comes up with. 
I think you would like it too! Go check it out here and here!

Um. Fantastic camera choice, first of all. Also, loving the name! I read it as cardigan at first (don't ask) but then I totally got it. And it's adorable. Speaking of adorable, these photos are just darling! Especially loving the one of the dog and the Christmas ornaments. Oh, the holiday spirit.

Congrats on your new toy...she's a beaut! :) If anyone gave me a dollar for every hour I have spent shooting photos just for fun, I'd be shooting photos for a living!

Have a lovely week!

Sorry to be annoying and leave another comment, but I had to tell you that I got 5 new pimples this morning, felt fat and didnt want to look in the mirror today. And then I read your comment and it made me so happy. I know its dumb, but I wanted to say thank you:-)

Cherish @ Southern Soul Mates said...

Sam,
Thank you so much for your sweet comments on Southern Soul Mates-you made my night :) I'm curious to know which song was playing as I have it on a random start so I never know which one is going to play first. I am so glad you enjoyed it whichever one it was :) I'm loving your blog, too! Thank you so much for following-I adore my followers, well, I really call them friends. Can't wait to get to know you! Have a blessed night! xoxoxo

-Mallori said...

Hey pretty girl! I loved your photo in the photo swap as well! Mine was taken from the roof of my sorority house, I got the idea from when I was walking around outside and realized how some trees were completely empty of leaves, and others still looked like it was October. Anyways, I hope you are enjoying Carrigan! I think she's a beauty! :D

Sarah loves it all said...

What a cute/fun blog! I especially love the foil pics as I am particularly familiar with that look. :) (I do hair.) Thank you so much for your kind comment on my blog!

*S said...

I have the same camera & LOVE it! I'm saving up to get a new lens and branch out from the kit lens she came with. The pics are great! ;)

You must share your secret of getting that cute little dog to focus and the tree in bokeh? I've tried for the life of me and it won't work. lol {I'm a newbie} ;)

Thanks for following my little corner of the web. I adore your little corner too. Just got yourself a new follower lady! ;)
