How much of a dork am I?

In our family, we get a lot of say in what we receive for birthday and Christmas presents. Quite often, I will be out shopping with my mom and see something I like, and she will say, "Is that something you would want for Christmas or your birthday?" If I say yes, then she will usually buy it. It may not sound like fun to those of you who likes surprises, but it's awfully nice to know I am getting something that I will definitely use. Besides, we always get surprise gifts, too. My husband and brother-in-law think it's great. They joke that you have to be careful about what you say you want, because you'll probably get it!

Anyway, for my birthday this year I am getting a postage scale and a photo tent. I am very excited! In fact, the postage scale is already at my house, but I haven't opened it yet. (My birthday is in October.) The photo tent is supposed to arrive tomorrow. We found it on Ebay, and I'm even the one who bid on it and sent the payment for it! (Mom doesn't have an Ebay or Paypal account.)

But, seriously, what kind of dork gets excited about postage scales and photo tents for their birthday?

Hi BeckyKay, Fabulous purses and a great blog. Tell me....what is a photo tent? Is it something to help you take better photos. My studio is dark and if it's a rainy day outside and I have to take photos in my studio they are yukky. :)) Lynn
