Slots at Tunica

Happy Friday everybody! It's a happy one for me that's for sure. Scott has a half day at work today so he's going to be home in a hour or so! My father-in-law is driving to Memphis for the weekend. We've got some big dinner plans which I'm excited about! McEwens tonight and Circa tomorrow. Both delicious restaurants here in Memphis. My brother is actually here too with a friend. They're staying all weekend as well. They came up last night and we all went out to eat at the Rendezvous. MMMMmmm. So yummy! After we ate, Kyle convinced us to go to Tunica so off we went. I kinda didn't want to go because I never win at black jack and I just wasn't in the mood to throw money to the wind because I had been shopping earlier in the day and spent a touch too much. You have to go prepared to lose, which I always do, but I was like, well alright...I'll go. So Kyle is actually staying at Harrah's (he got free rooms) so while he was checking in, Scott and I hung out in the lobby. And by hanging out, I mean walking around trying to find the drink lady (free drinks!) Scott and I decided to gamble only $80. We have to set a limit for ourselves or Scott will do what he did in Vegas one time and lose $700. So while we were waiting on Kyle to check in, I told Scott I wanted to play the slots. I LOVE to play the slots. Scott rolls his eyes at me because he thinks I really throw my money to the wind when I do that. But he was like, you have your money do what you want to do. So I sat down at a machine and stuck a $20 bill in. I always bet the max bet so I hit it a few times and nothing. Then, when I got down to having only about $10 I hit it and all of a sudden DING DING DING DING DING DING DING DING DING DING DING DING DING DING DING DING DING DING.....
Scott and I were like 'alright this is awesome! What did we get?" trying to look on the screen and figure out what two 7's and a flag meant. kept on dinging and kept on dinging...all of a sudden people were running up to us congratulating us and wondering what we were getting. Mine and Scott's eyes were so big and I was like 'uhhh...did we hit the jackpot?' Well sad news it did eventually stop and I didn't hit the jackpot but I did win $279.50!!!! How awesome is that! So Scott and I tucked away $200 of it and he played black jack with the rest...and won us about $40. So all in all, it was a good night and maybe I should always have the attitude of I don't want to go because I'm going to lose.... Scott and I probably high fived each other 89 times. We were very excited! The money will be going into our savings of course.....
I guess that's about all I have for ya! Scott just called and I need to run to the store real quick and grab some BBQ beans for lunch. We're making hot dogs but with brats because you couldn't pay me to eat a hot dog. GROSS! But I do love a brat so that's what we're gonna eat. Hope you all have a great weekend!!
