The hubs and I had an eventful weekend celebrating my dear friend Lisa’s birthday with her and her husband in “The Biggest Little City in the World.” Here are some snapshots from our weekend via my instagram:
crazy Reno clouds
love the sparkle

Random thoughts from our Reno trip:
> We had a great time, lots of laughs, and not much sleep. We also did not see the sun for two days.
> We played blackjack (so fun! and my favorite) and got our exercise walking around inside the casino.
> I’ve decided that I should teach blackjack courses. I’ve been told this by a couple of folks now, and I’ve successfully taught a few friends to play. Although I’m always wary about introducing anyone to the dangerous world of gambling, I think it’s fine as long as you don’t live in close proximity to a casino. I’m contemplating writing a blackjack guide for the blog. What do y’all think? Have you ever played blackjack?
> Lisa and I discovered that we have “blackjack songs,” such as
–Dynamite (replace dance with win–We came to win, win, win)
-this new song by Pink and Nate (because it’s Amazing and obviously lucky)
–Magic (for when you get dealt an 11*- they’re magic)
–Whatever You Like (our lyrics: you can split** whatever you likeeee).
> Huevos Rancheros should never be consumed past 1am.
> You meet the most interesting strangers when you’re gambling. Take that as you will.
> My hair holds up amazingly well in the desert.
> Apparently, I either look 21 or 35 to every stranger I meet. #gofigure
A huge happy birthday shoutout to my dear friend Lisa! As always, spending long uninteruppted time with her is one of my favorite pastimes.
How was your weekend?
Happy Monday everyone. I plan to spend the day hydrating. 🙂
*When you get an 11, you can double your bet and you have a really good chance of getting 21 and winning double!
**If you have two of the same card (two 8s or two 6s for example), you can “split” them into two separate hands.
