Weekend Trip to Tunica!

The Hubby and I celebrated being together 8 years this weekend! It's crazy how fast the time goes when you are having fun!

We made an unexpected weekend getaway to celebrate. We drove down to Tunica, Mississippi. It's about 7 1/2 hours.

We stopped in Memphis to eat at Marlowe's. It was a restaurant featured on Drive In's, Diners, and Dives on the Food Network. It was about a mile from Graceland.

The food was good, but service was slow, so it kind of took away from the fun. 

We drove the last 30 minutes to our hotel. We stayed at The Roadhouse. It was a small hotel & casino. It was a nice place to stay. For some reason it wasn't very busy, but we didn't mind that.

The Roadhouse is also walking distance from the Gold Strike and The Horseshoe.

Saturday we got up and drove to the Hollywood Casino to play poker. It's right near Sam's Town and Resorts. 

We got in a 3-6 limit game. This allows you to play for hours without ever losing a lot. We both were able to win some money.

I think we were the youngest at the table by about 45-50 years! 

It was a short getaway weekend, but well worth it. It's always refreshing to get away and enjoy time together!

Until next time,

Date Night Jar

The Hubby and I have been together 8 years. The one thing we have consistently argued over for those 8 years is the question, "What do you want to do?"

I consider us to both be intelligent adults, but when that question comes out of the other persons mouth its like we become fools and have no thoughts.

Our common answer is "I don't know" or "I don't care". 

Well I found something to fix that problem. Our date night jar!

I saw the idea on Pinterest (where all ideas live of course) and decided it was an inexpensive, crafty solution to our problem.

All you need are Popsicle sticks, markers, a jar, and your list of activities you want to use.

Both the Hubby and I brainstormed ideas in the categories of free dates, cheap dates, more expensive dates, and plan ahead dates.

Here is our example list:

Making the list was the hardest part. There are a lot of online links for date ideas. Just cater your list to your tastes and preferences!

This doesn't really requ…

Songs I am Obsessed With Right Now

Maybe I am the only person, but when I hear a song I like on the radio I kind of get obsessed with it. I just want it to come on all the time! Or I go home and YouTube it over and over!

Here are a few of the songs I love right now!

This song by the Chainsmokers is awesome. It has such a great beat and it's always on the radio right now!

Dan and Shay are a great country duo, but From the Ground Up is such a beautiful song. I absolutely love it.

Florida Georgia Line has never put out a bad song. It took me a few times for me to get into this one, but I really like the song. It's another I love to sing when it comes across the radio (which is quite a bit).

I hope you enjoy your day! 

Until next time,

Mixed Feelings for Sure...

I am not one to post much about politic things. I think it's best just to keep my mouth shut about how I feel about politics, because it just starts arguments between friends.

Well Donald Trump will be our 45th president. I have so many mixed emotions about this...

I am scared for the possibilities that he brings with no experience. I am scared that the people who got out and voted were fueled by hate, not change. That they were scared because they are getting left behind by technology, scared because people with education are bypassing them for more opportunities, that social norms are changing and it's not acceptable to them.

I am scared that people think it's okay for Donald to have mocked a disabled reporter, to have said demeaning things about women and it be okay, to be openly hateful to people of other cultures and that being considered American pride.

I want a world for my daughter to be kind, accepting, understanding. We are not all the same, we have different opportu…
