Ben Again 300/365

I grabbed a coffee at Starbucks this week while downtown and guess who was busy busking* outside? Ben! I got a short video and a picture of me mooning over him. Oh my the guy I got to take my pic told me I was vain for posting a picture of myself everyday on here but i told  him it was just a challenge...dork!

* Busking is the practice of performing in public places for tips and gratuities. People engaging in this practice are called buskers. Buskers may also be known as street performers, street musicians, minstrels or troubadours.

King Tut 290/365

After a very busy day yesterday I was sort of planning on sleeping in today but I got rolled out of bed bright and early with an invitation to go up to Denver to see the King Tut exhibition. One of the gals that was supposed to go got sick so I got three frantic phone calls from Mindy (2 times) and Vicki asking me to go. I threw on my new yoga pants and curled my hair, ate some toast and drank a cup of coffee. Then off to Denver!

I'm not going to show you everything today though, just a few of my fav pics.
