I'mmmmm baaaaaaaaack!

So we have returned from Vegas barely functioning and ready for the long weekend. Vegas was a blast. We came home up $800... woowho! Basically the trip only cost us the airfare since our winnings covered our hotel and some food. We played poker + slept + barely ate + played more poker. "I luv play poka".

Here are some pics of our hotel, Bellagio, in Vegas:

Back to reality...

Haven't had much to say...

So I guess I haven't had much to say since I've not posted in a while...
  • We leave tomorrow for Vegas - yay!
  • Not getting as much back from taxes as expected - boo!
  • Craig still not working (or sent a resume for that matter) - boo!
  • Starting Flintstone's chewable vitamins and 1mg folic acid when we return from Vegas - per my doctor's suggestion
  • Visited my gramp's grave for the first time since he was buried (it wasn't easy)
  • Dad has been looking/feeling better lately - yay yay yay yay!
  • West Coast Vacation scrapbook is moving along (slowly)... though I am really liking it so far (a little more than half way done)
  • Totally looking forward to a 3-day weekend after we return from vacation (I normally need some type of vacation from a vacation)

What I like about life, right now...

These are the things that I currently enjoy in life (other than the obvious):
  • Poker
  • Vacationing
  • Craft Days
  • Cooking Club

Poker: I would play everyday if I could. Currently we play Monday night's at Jimbos (currently I am in 1st place, Craig is in 2nd place -- out of about 30-40 people) and Wednesday nights at Applebees (I placed 1st for January at that venue and Craig placed 4th)... those two places are free to play. We play about 3x/month for money (mostly at our place in the manroom) with anywhere from 7-20 people... average probably about 10. When we are both working we probably take a trip down to Foxwoods about 1x/month.

Vacationing: Wow, this I would also do daily if possible. We've been taking about 2-3 vacations a year for the past few years... and it is nice. I love it. This week coming up we are taking our 3rd trip to Vegas in 12 months (also related to Poker)... though this may be our last Vegas trip (and possibly vacation) for a while if we are going to start TTC by the summer (nothing in stone yet).

Craft Days: This wouldn't be nearly as fun and enjoyable if it weren't for the dear friends that I craft with. I am so excited these gatherings became more frequent and our group has grown. Joy, Tricia and I are the original scrap gals... and now we have grown into a "craft" group (I seem to be the only committed scrapper of the group ;)

Cooking Club: Our cooking club has also grown from the original group off the Beantown Brides MSN board... and it is something like our 15th or 16th month. Nice group of gals that get together once a month after work at one of the girls' house and chat over food.
