Happy Birthday on Friday the 13th!

So, you're probably aware that today is Friday the 13th of 2013... I hope your day is not unlucky in any way! Today also happens to be my birthday. It happens every now and then that it falls on Friday the 13th, which I think is "cool" for some reason. I don't really have anything planned for today, but I'm hoping it's a nice day.

In celebration of my 29th birthday, here are my pets having a great time partying it up!


I got my birthday present from my boyfriend a day early yesterday. It's a new camera! And I'm very pleased that he picked out a Nikon. It's not a super fancy camera, but I really like it and had a lot of fun playing around taking pictures yesterday evening. I really like that it has a "pet portrait" setting and I think that's going to come in handy for photographing Nibblet especially. Here are some of the photos from my new camera test session.

Speaking of parties, our friend Speedy is having an awesome party tomorrow. Since Speedy recently had one of his eyes surgically removed, he is now a pirate bunny. Visit Speedy's blog tomorrow to join his Pirate Party! Be sure to come decked out in your best pirate attire. I hear there's going to be booty (that means treasure in pirate-speak) and grub. It's going to be lots of fun!

I would also like to say thank you to everyone who sent well wishes my way regarding my mother's breast cancer diagnosis - I really appreciate it and everyone is so sweet!

    1. BTW, does your new camera have the Mackerel setting? I love the closeup of HD.

      Delete
    2. Yes it do CK! It says's close-up and in the manual they call it macro or somethin. I can't remember what setting I used for the closeup of HD. Still getting used to this camera's mackerel setting because a lot of the pics are coming out blurry with it.
