This past weekend went by in a blur - Dan & I went with friends to the MGM Grand at Foxwoods Saturday / Sunday. It was a good time, but those casinos are draining. It's sensory overload - there's music, lights, textures and patterns. I did like the carpet in our hotel room:
Anyway, we played some blackjack (after a practice session the night before with Cheerios). I only played a few hands - I find it way too fast / intimidating and then you have the regular players that shout and you "NO! Don't hit on 12 / 13 / 14!". Dan stuck with it, he was up, down / broke even and in the end lost, but it was a good time.
I really enjoyed the place we stopped at for food before we started gambling, Burke in the Box - Dan & I had different sliders - cheeseburger and chicken parm. They were so cute - had to take a photo;
(When I took this photo I thought of Phoebe because she often has food pictures on her blog! Jennsquared too!)
And here we are,
Tomorrow is our 4th Anniversary. We're celebrating today (dinner and a movie (double yum!). We're hosting Thanksgiving, so we expect tomorrow will be a bit crazy with prep. Actually we're in good shape I think, even with Lorelai all about and underfoot.
I've just about finished a hat for a new baby we get to meet on Friday, but it still needs a tassel and I would rather show it off on the actual baby (I hope it fits!) It was a custom job requested by his mom....
I've also been looking at the past novembers - I was waiting a lot in November 2007, prepping in November 2006 (those WIPS from 11/13/06? Still not done. I think they are still on the needles. I should rip those out. The LnV socks I plan to fix though) and in November 2005 I was being a teacher and hadn't learned how to balance my time yet. In 2004 I married... (a photo was posted in december, here). Good times.
