The Reveal: My New Toy/Hobby!!!

Hola! Happy Sunday… I’m SO tired. We had a great weekend but I didn’t get much sleep. Boo. Before backing up I want to reveal my new item – from Urban Outfitters that is about to start a new hobby…

It’s my new Harinezumi digital camera!



Basically, it’s this teeny tiny digital camera that takes video that looks all dreamy/vintage/old school 8mm. I’m kind of obsessed. My friend at work Chris AKA Lolo told me about it on Tuesday and showed me a video. I was SO inspired I bought one that night, had it delivered Friday and took video, edited and posted my first video Friday night!! Here’s the video – hope you like!!! (and since some of you had problems I added a link below - also links to my new video from the wedding!)

My First Video with the Digital Harinezumi 2 (Christmas 2009) from Kelly Shaw on Vimeo.

So, as you can see, we didn’t take off on Friday for Alabama. The weather was nasty and we were tired. I had worked, walked 4 miles, worked, then walked 2 miles and did legs with Stacy. OMG – great workout!! I got home, opened the camera and started filming. SO much fun. Then me and Austin had a few drinks, played pool, packed and got ready for Saturday. I still need to do stats - eek!

Saturday we got up and headed to Birmingham to meet Teresa and Forrest over at Mary and Jimmy’s – two of my FAVORITE couples ever. We got there and met Mary and Jimmy’s baby girl Emma. O. M. G. she was just adorable and so sweet! I loved her. Loved her! We spent (not enough!) time with her, then she was off to her grandma’s and it was time for us to get going! We hung out, got ready, then went to the wedding. SO much fun. Kelly and Ryan looked great and seemed SO happy. The band was awesome and we all had a really great time being absolutely ridiculous. Haha We headed out at 11, went to Mary and Jimmy’s and had a few more drinks and stayed up too late. Ugh. I haven’t tracked yet – it’s going to take FOREVA to get it all in so I’ll post it Monday or Tuesday!

Today we got up and felt like poo. Not enough sleep at all. Then we all watched the Hangover (how appropriate), said our goodbyes, and drove back to Atlanta. Now we’re off to watching 2010 – I hope I love it! I’ll do today’s stats tomorrow too – why not?!

Do you have a video camera/take videos? If so, what software do you edit with and where do you upload? I used windows movie maker and uploaded to Vimeo.

Hope you guys had a great weekend! I'm off to get some sleep - talk to you tomorrow!
