WHOA. WTF just happened?

I got a new camera.

Sh*t. Just. Got. REAL.

I was just cooking dinner – nothing weird about that – when Shelton walks in and says, “Turn off the stove.”

But why, I thought? Then faster, Sarah don’t ask questions.

And then three beautiful words fell out of Shelton’s mouth… “Close your eyes.”

So, I did.

When I opened them this is what I saw: a brand new, completely legit, Nikon D5100.

{ Happy early birthday to me. }

I have a real camera, ladies and gentlemen.

And I just had to share with you, because it’s about to get real photography-happy up in here!

Obviously, I have no idea how to use this thing, but I assume it’ll make me coffee in the morning?

Do you have any guidance for me? Tips? Anything?

Please share your knowledge with me!
