R.I.P. Camera #2

I have SO many awesome pics from our VERY awesome Memorial Day Weekend festivities.

And of course, I am so looking forward to sharing these pics with you.

However, as you can see by the title of my post, you will have to be patient my friends.

Yes, that is correct. I have completely ruined camera numero dos in the span of 1 year. Last year, I broke our quasi-professional SUPER expensive camera by dropping it down a friend's stairs while returning to my beer pong match. (Yes, you heard that correctly). I obvi learned a lesson to never EVER take a super expensive camera to ridiculous sporting events.

Well, yesterday, we said goodbye to camera #2. Mr. Ruby and I packed a delicious picnic lunch, loaded the pups in the car, and went for a long hike in Mass. Mr. Rubes took one picture of me and Samson and as he was handing it to me to take a pic of him, it slid right through my freshly bug-sprayed hands.

"Lens Error" is all it said for the rest of the day. It wouldn't even turn it on or off. :(

Lucky for me, I learned my lesson after the death of my first camera and we purchased the warranty. The camera got shipped off somewhere, and if they can't fix it, I get a new one!!!

The bad news? I'm going back home to Kansas TOMORROW morning with a week FULL of friends, family, and wedding stuff. How will I ever go through the next 5 days without my sidekick glued to my side???

When I realized this, my chest began to tighten, and the room started closing in. I mean, how can I possible go anywhere without documenting every single memory and fun moment?!?!? I started panicking.

I am the one who in college was the VERY last girl (out of over 900 girls) down to the basement during a tornado because I had to take down every single picture in my dorm room so they wouldn't get sucked up in the storm.

I quickly realized I can just borrow my parents' camera for the weekend. PHEW! So, with that being said, you will have to wait before I can post pics.

On a happy note, this beautiful gal will soon be married:

And on another happy note, PLEASE go check out my friend's new blog - this lovely lady is hysterically documenting her life of online dating. SO funny!!! Check it out: The Summer Online Dating Experience

On a final note, my blogging might be a bit spotty the next few days...because I will be soaking up EVERY minute with family and friends back home!!! So hang with me!
