Momma's Got a Brand New Bag & How not to treat your Electronics

I FINALLY got the Jo Totes Camera Bag that I have been drooling over for about 2 years now! I haven't actually had the chance to carry it anywhere yet but I have been playing with how to arrange the Velcro inserts to fit all of my camera goodies in it. So far I've fit my Nikon D90, 50mm f/1.8 lens, 85mm f/1.8 lens, 18-105mm lens and my speedlight flash with plenty of room left for more. The design seems very functional plus the color is adorable!

Also, on a side note I deep sixed my HD Flip Video Recorder yesterday into a crock pot soaking in the sink FULL of water. (That plus all of my camera lens hoods but they dry off easy.) I was hysterically crying because it had about a years worth of videos of Sydney that I have yet to upload to my computer. We let it dry out all day and it turned on and my videos were still there! Hopefully we can get them on the computer but last night it wasn't recognizing it as a USB device. I have faith that we will figure something out but I'm just glad they are still there at all.
Lesson learned: DO NOT keep your electronics so close to the sink!


  1. Holy CUTENESS - that bag is adorable, the color is delicious! I'm glad you finally treated yourself! Sorry to hear about the video camera going for a swim though, and I hope you are able to upload the footage soon.

  2. One of my nephews spilled a cup of water near my laptop this morning and I almost flipped! Luckily everything was ok. And I've been drooling over that EXACT SAME BAG for about the same amount of time. I've gotta hold off though, until I upgrade my camera at least. Lucky you!!


  3. oh goodness.... when i read that part about your video camera falling in... my heart sank... I know that WAY TOO well. We adopted our sons from Ethiopia... and got our first moment meeting him on video... and the video broke... brand new... and we never were able to retrieve the data! SOOOO glad yours was safe. SOOOOO glad. There is nothing like memories!

  4. i LOVE their bags. so cute. lucky lucky lucky.

  5. That's the bag I want. So flippin' adorable! Congratulations on getting it and for your videos not being lost. That would have been a huge bummer!
