Back in February I took part in my first of the #PhotoAnHour monthly challenges organised by Jane, I sadly missed March due to being at a home buyer course so photos were somewhat impractical, but luckily, Saturday was busy busy for things and places for what we go up to.
With Saturday being right before Easter, estate sales where few and far between and with Record Store day we turned our attention to other things, hopefully this'll give you a peek into a different kind of Saturday for us!
8am // spring means finally digging out my old Converse, and when I say old they are like nine years old and somewhat falling apart. But they are so darn comfy. But I forgot how cold my feet feel in them when it's not super warm out.
9am // after driving around we decided to start queuing up at Flipside record store for Record Store Day, they didn't open till 10 so we spent over an hour on not the warmest of mornings - Michigan skies are deceiving.
10am // just a little after 10am we came out with all our vinyl goodies in a fancy Record Store Day bag, we also stocked up on some much needed 12" protective covers and such - I'll be sharing the vinyl purchases in a post later this week.
11am // sadly Flipside didn't have the Cake boxset so we headed to Royal Oak and queued outside of UHF (they didn't any left by that time, sigh). I did notice this neat Record Store poster in their door though, sadly since noticed the lack of female musical artists in it though.
12am // waiting for a exceedingly long train to cross Woodward up in Ponitac, we were driving up to poke the Homes for Humanity resale store to see their prices on electrical appliances that we're going to need to buy when we buy a house.
1pm // back home after picking up a meal from steak and shake for lunch - awesome place for a burger (they also do good milkshakes just so you know)
2pm // lazy afternoon started catching up on twitter, blogs and ebay, record player on, glaring at the tetris pile of moving boxes in the far distance
3pm // starting to stitch a blackwork piece I designed around the state map of Michigan for another embroidery hoop design for myself
4pm // currently playing Led Zepplin II, having a stackable record player we also had Blue Oyster, Black Sabbath and some of Ozzy's solo work all playing prior
5pm // snack before we headed out, didn't particularly like then when I first moved, but Pop Tarts have certainly grown on me. I'd highly recommend the Cookies and Crème flavour. Nom.
6pm // heading north to the Palace in Auburn Hills, if I'd of taken it a couple of minutes prior, you'd of seen the weaving jackass driver that was on the road too- there's many jackasses on the roads in these parts
7pm // took our seats for the Harlem Globetrotters verses the All Stars game which was a pretty fun evening (again, there's another post with more pictures lined up)
The rest of the night was spent at the game until just before 9, eating a super late tea at McDonalds on the way home, seeing the return of my cold and watching Scrubs. Another highlight - Skid Row favoriting one of my tweets, it's the little things that's for sure!

How did you spend your Saturday?
