It all started at the Blue water Casino in Parker….we were in desperate need of a break sssfrom the man shed, life and really needed to get out of dodge for awhile….so we headed up north to the casino, about 100 miles away….it was a fun day….Colorado River running by in front, not a huge casino, and the day was comfortable to sit out and read in….
Well the husband won, not a lot but a small chuck of change for him….we got up the next day and had decided that we were going to head to Las Vegas on the following Monday, the itch to play had been planted..LOL.. I checked room rates and found them reasonable, we didn’t want to take the RV so we could stay in a hotel, something different…then the spark happened…why wait till next week…lets just go…so that’s what we did Tuesday morning…packed up in a flash and was off by 11a…. Pictures of Lake Havasue on the way there….the London Bridge is in this resort town….
The long straight road that goes on forever across the desert to Vegas !!
Las Vegas is about 5 hours away so we would be there by dinner….off we went…fought the traffic to Las Vegas Strip, finally parked and went in to Circus-Circus, my hubby’s favorite, we unknown to us there was a huge car convention going on all week in Vegas….the room rates were through the roof at all the Hotels…I mean 200+ per night for a normally 50$ dollar room….we won’t pay that price so we turned around and drove back to Laughlin Nevada, right on the Colorado river and they have a row of casinos on the river….
Its a fun little city….a mini Vegas….we will make better plans and go back to Las Vegas, I really want to go play on the strip…had fun…stayed at Harrah’s, not really impressed but it was fun…my husband had a great time playing the slots…we did not walk away millionaires….but we did have fun!!!
Got home this afternoon…was a wonderful drive back…sunny and blue skies…we were only home for a couple hours and the dust storm from the east hit…crazy how quick the weather can change….
November has snuck in and the count down to the holidays have officially started…The Cubs won the World Series, whoo hooo for them we are so happy that we don’t have cable….we couldn’t believe how many political commercials there are on cable tv…..Yay for antennas…don’t get me wrong, we have political commercials but not like cable…LOL just thought that was interesting…so I tired to eat healthy while away, however it was so easy to be tempted into the land of Cinnabon…Starbucks, and room service…LOL so back at it….counting starts again tomorrow will rope my calories back wo 1200 cal and start a home exercise program…I will go back to blogging every day my progress as I find this really helps me get back in control…
…hope this finds everyone enjoying the November and the color of fall…till tomorrow
