Welcome to the club! Yep, it's an addictive hobby. Don't get caught up in the gear, get out and shoot. My rec, save some $$$ and go for the 18-200mm VR lens. I don't have it, but it's an outstanding newb - intermediate lens. By the time you're looking for something more advanced, you'll probably be looking for a D400 or something to go with it!
Over the last couple years, I've collected:
D100 w/ MB-100 vertical battery grip - sold
D200 w/ MB-200 vertical battery grip
10.5 f/2.6 fisheye
80-400mm f/4.5-5.6 VR
SB-28 - SOLD
It's easy to get hooked!
