Find a Camera, Pick it Up

Morning everyone!

Soooo…remember that time I went to Mexico and lost my point and shoot camera along with all the pictures on the interlaying SD card? That wasn’t the first time I’ve lost a camera. In fact, my family and I have joked that I just can NOT keep cameras. Honestly, I think I’ve either ruined or lost 5 or 6 point and shoots in my life.

Well, make that 6 or 7. Yep. Oops…I did it again. Last night Shane and I went on a super cute date to Uptown (formerly known as Downtown…whatever) Normal and brought the pup along for pizza and beer, walked along the brand new huge fountain, and then to an ice cream shop. The pictures were super cute too. I promise, they were. However, I have no proof, as I left my point and shoot on the super cute bench we sat and ate our ice cream on. Trust there were pictures of beer, veggie pizza, big fountains, blueberry ice cream, and yours truly. I went back to the spot this morning, alas someone else had found it and picked it up for their own. Darn.

My dad and I are already searching for deals on nice point and shoot cameras for a replacement. You know, so I can lose that one, too. I’m pretty sure we’re trying to get me in the Guinness book of world records for most cameras lost. Ever 😉 My dad thinks I’m just trying to share the wealth. I’m charitable like that 😉

So instead of super cute date pictures, I have fooood pictures!

Breakfast:

This was eaten after a 3.15 mile run this morning. I was aiming for 9:15-9:30 pace, and it ended up being 9:06. I did, however, have negative splits which is a bonus in my book.

Just to let you guys know – my running bug is back. I’m currently training for a half marathon. When is the half? I’m not sure. The Chicago Rock n Roll half is already booked, but my cousin Bronwyn is going to try and see if we can form a team (she and my other cousin and aunt are already signed up) that I can join! 🙂 If not, I’ll run the Chicago Half Marathon in September. I haven’t created an official training plan, but I’m loosely basing if off of my first half marathon training plan.

I’m about to head off to the gym to work and train some clients, but lunch will be this lovely veggie wrap:

it contains portabella, cucumber, spinach, and hummus.

I need a little pep, so I’m currently finishing off the French Press in the form of iced coffeeee!

Well I’m off to work, and then to a local winery! Hope to see you back tomorrow with some pictures from a new point and shoot (I’ll never learn!) 😉

 

Is there one thing that you lose/damage every time you have one? For me it’s obviously cameras. When I was in high school, though, I probably lost my school ID once a week. It got pretty ridiculous!

  1. I have broke 4-5 point and shoots, too. This is the reason I have yet to buy a DSLR.

  2. I have only had one point-and-shoot and have had it for five years now. Unfortunately, I cannot locate its battery charger so I’m having the “new camera or replace the charger?” debate.

  3. I’m actually pretty good about not losing or breaking things….knock on wood!

  4. I dropped and broke my point and shoot on my birthday last year. I’ve been extra careful with my new one. 🙂

  5. I think you should call the ice cream shop to see if a good samaritan turned in the camera. One never knows when a good guy might be out there. I once left my gold wedding band (a big one) on a machine in my gym, and when I walked back, like 15 minutes later, it was already turned in at the front desk. I wish the desk girl could have told me the guy’s name.

    When I found a brand new ipod in the same gym and turned it in, the girl at the desk told him my name. He sent me a gift card to Starbucks!!

  6. Oh no that stinks!!! I lost my camera in the Bahamas once. 😦 I hope you find a good deal on a new one!
