Take Me Back Tuesday; My Old Room

It's time for another Take Me Back Tuesday.




This picture was taken in either 1998 or 1999. The Hero and I had been together for a year or two. We were in my room after opening Christmas presents. I received the Nintendo 64 from Santa and nearly fell asleep waiting for my turn to play. The stereo and furniture were gifts from my grandparents. I received them prior to Christmas. The daisy comforter probably came from Walmart. There were six picture frames on the stereo and two on the wall. I still have the two larger ones with the original pictures in them. The dead rose was left on my car by an ex-boyfriend with an anonymous card. I recognized his handwriting. The card read 'you know me'. Well, duh! I was sitting in front of the new JanSport backpack I asked for. I don't think those are paint splotches on the wall. I'm pretty sure it's the reflection from the mirrors on the headboard. I guess that's it.

Definitely a reflection from the mirror, unless you painted The Hero's silhouette on the wall. I have to say I'm very excited I knew how to spell silhouette. Go me...lol!

I'm laughing at your expression -- I think I had that same one after I got my Wii Fit for MY birthday and The Husband started playing on it! ;-)
