February 6th: Buy Something Extravagant 

How exciting! When I made my list I had no idea what this would be. But everyday as I go through my list to pick something out, one thing really sticks out… listen to a record player. Only thing is I do not own one and was not sure how I would make this happen. 

So today!!!! I bought a record player. 


Nothing really fancy. Or even expensive but I think it qualifies as extravagant. It is a Jensen 3-Speed Stereo Turntable with AM/FM Stereo Radio – Brown (JTA-222).


I am so excited to get it. It should be delivered by next week. Only thing to do now is buy a record… maybe I will start a collection. 

February 4th: Explore a New Music Venue

Man, oh man. It was so exciting to see The Revivalists live, even more exciting that they were at a venue I had never been to.

First of all, if you have never heard of The Revivalists, look them up and listen now! They are AMAZING.

Second, it is quite unbelievable that I have never been to The Ogden. I have lived in Denver for over five years and the Ogden is one of the most popular venues… but I just never had a show that I just had to see… and I am not really a show goer unless I am REALLY into the band. 

Anyway, the venue was great and the music was the best! The only bad thing I could say is that the show was 16+ and it was pretty rough being around very intoxicated, very young people. But that will not take away from the awesome experience.

My camera on my phone has a cracked lense, so I cannot get really great pictures, but here are a few I did get that turned out decent!

January 5th: Ask Friends for Music Suggestions and LISTEN

Needs no explanation. Great friends=some great music. It’s an ecclectic mix, which is what you want… in friends and music! I have to say above everything else, I am amazed by this simple experience. As I listened to each song I saw the person that recommended it to me in the lyrics and melody. It made me smile and love the music even more.
