It’s Friday. It’s finally Friday! One more day til the weekend. I’m super excited for tomorrow! Tomorrow I am leaving for a much-needed girls weekend with one of my favorite people!

So did I tell you that I finally took the plunge and invested in a DSLR? Yup, finally did it! Now I don’t take those decisions lightly at all! I’ve been so scared to take a step into the camera world because I loved some of the pics that my phone took, but since it took a bath and I had to get a replacement of a different kind I think it was a sign in the right direction. So I’ve been playing around with it and having fun. I’ve already purchased myself a new lens and a tripod that I can’t wait to arrive tomorrow. So we will see how this new experience treats me! These Corned Beef Quesadillas will be my 2nd recipe up on the blog that is taken with my new toy. The first being Monday’s lovely Coconut Tres Leches Cake.
