Disclosure: This is a sponsored post with Best Buy and I have been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card.
Last night before we visited Santa and took the above picture, I spent several hours with Rock and X going over several sites of our favorite toy brands going over toy options to ask Santa. When the fateful time to tell Santa came, the boys still gave wishy washy responses. Santa has his work cut out for them with the Dancing Hotdogs boys.
For this Mami, Santa does not the same problem, there is only one thing on my list!
A brand new camera!
This is my Canon Rebel XTi camera.
I bought it in 2008 when I was very pregnant with Rock. It has captured so many key Dancing Hotdogs family moments like birthdays, vacations, family portraits and countless Press opportunities.
Over the years, I upgraded my beloved camera with a few new lenses and just recently a new battery, however, with two active boys and all the video content on DancingHotdogs.com, my purse no longer has baby essentials it has blogger tech essentials like my Canon, my video camera, extra batteries etc.
Trust me I get an additional work out every time I go out with all my gear. Especially, since 2008, photography and digital imaging products have had HUGE advancements. Not only do they capture amazing family pictures, they have wi-fi built in AND take video!
For the past couple months, I have been checking out other parent and blogger digital gear trying to figure out what products are best for me and my needs for my next purchase.
Come December 13, the Dancing Hotdogs family is headed to South America after 2 years for a much needed holiday and I CANNOT wait to capture all those precious holiday and family memories.
Thankfully, Best Buy, the ultimate destination for the latest cameras and camcorders (and actually where I purchased both the Canon and my video camera), reached out to me to check out their latest Nikon, Sony and Samsung products.
