CasiNO or CasiYES?

Merry Christmas! 

I have a trivia question for you.

Q: What does a casino and this holiday season have in common?

A: Blinking lights and disappearing money, ahhhhh haha!

My dad and I had a bonding day yesterday which consisted of a fun-filled bus trip to a casino. We left bright and early, and I found my father and I to be the only ones on the bus without a walker or oxygen tank. Nevertheless, our fellow bus goers were a rowdy bunch and ready to party. I was hoping to win back some cash that I spent on gifts for my boyfriend and family. Come on, big money!

I can count the amount of times I have been to a casino on one hand, but I can definitely see how people get addicted. The lights. The sounds. The whole place is filled with dollar-eyed individuals looking to get lucky.... most who park their wheelchairs in front of slot machines for hours on end. I swear, when I'm old and immobile I hope the epitome of a good time isn't a blinking slot machine.

Fun fact, not to be gross, but casinos have really impressive toilets. These things have a sanitary plastic cover that changes for each user. Spiffy.

Anyways, I was feeling lucky. Every machine looked the same and my dad and I had no idea what we were doing. My first game of choice is shown below... for some reason I was drawn to it.

Here goes nothing. Another thing I learned, losing money works up an appetite! Luckily, casinos like to adorn themselves with great restaurants. I was happy to find that the menu had some healthier options; I ordered the grilled veggie wrap, nom nom nom! It was fantastic!

Luck Lady finally caught up with us and......

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I didn't know what I was doing, but hey, I'll more than take it. 

This trip definitely helped take me out of Christmas shopping debt. Gambling is always more fun when you're winning, but I could never allow myself to do it on a regular basis. More than anything, it was a fun experience to have with my dad. 

I love winter break and how it allows me to spend time with those I love the most.

Enjoy the holidays everyone! Recipes are coming soon, let me know if you're cooking/baking anything yummy! Guest posts are always welcomed! Merry Christmas :)
