365 Days Of Pictures: Day 335...

Everyone was telling me how nice my hair looked today, so I had to take a picture.

February Photo-A-Day Challenge...

I found this over at Mandy aka Miss Indie's blog (It is orginally from Fat Mum Slim's blog), as well as Mandi aka Life In Beta's blog (So many!!) and I thought it would be a fun way to help me reach the end of the 365 Day Photo Challange I'm doing as part of my yearly "No Regrets" list -- Yeah, I realize that that was a lot... Sorry.

For those of you who are newer followers, every year I do a "No Regrets" list (The title is based off the book No Regrets: 101 Fabulous Things to Do Before You're Too Old, Married, or Pregnant by Sarah Ivens) in which I come up with a number of things (Based on my age. The most recent list is 26 things) I have to do by my next birthday, which is March 4th. Since March is rapidly approaching I've got to get moving and I thought this February photo-a-day challenge would be good for me, plus I like to share with all of you!
How to take part in February photo-a-day:
1. Using the list as inspiration, take a photo each day.
2. Share it on Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #FEBphotoaday. You can also share on your blog or on Facebook ... or even keep the photos privately for yourself.
3. Check out other people's photos and like them or comment on them.

NOTE: I won't be noting in the entry title anything about this only because I'm using it for my 365 day challenge, but I will write something underneath the photo about it. Plus I have OCD when it comes to tagging posts.

365 Days Of Pictures: Day 334...

On The Hunt...

I had the best day out with "Favorite Page #2" today. The two of us spend the entire day bopping from thrift store to thrift store and from record store to record store to see what LP's and 45's we could find -- Yup, we're both dorks with record players. It was so much fun and it was just nice to be able to go into those kinds of stores with someone who appreciated them and wouldn't get bored while one hunts around for crap. We enjoyed ourselves so much we decided to do it possible once a month if we were both free on the same day. I can't wait for our next trip!

I actually have more 45's but I have no idea what they are because I bought bags full of them from the thrift stores for $1.00. I buy them like that because you never know what you're gonna get and I've been surprised by what I've gotten.
