It’s back to reality after our brief, but fun trip out to Mohegan Sun in Connecticut! Hubs had looked into little B&B inns, but decided on the casino due to the crazy weather we’ve been getting. And he was RIGHT – just walking across the parking garage was brutally cold!
We shopped at little boutiques and drank margaritas at the cheesy Margaritaville. We tried our luck at the slot machines. We went wild in the kiddie arcade. We blew off fancy dinner reservations to eat burgers, fries, and kaluha-spiked milkshakes. We lounged around on our luxurious king-sized bed and watched the Westminster dog show on TV. We ordered room service for breakfast and even stopped at the outlets on the way home – a bonus!
All in all, it was such a mellow, relaxing outing for us. It’s times like this that I’m so happy we don’t make a habit out of buying each other big, expensive material gifts. I’ll take playing a hysterical game of skee-ball with my funny and thoughtful husband over getting a new designer purse, always.
