An Adventure Close to Home!

Our kids were gone for the weekend AND it just so happened to be my birthday! That was all the motivation we needed to pack a small bag and jump in the car. We convinced a couple friends to go too.

And off we went, to The Biggest Little City in the World, Reno, Nevada!

Biggest Little City

Just a short 4 hour drive from home, we pulled into the little city that never sleeps. We check into our hotel close to 11pm, and the activity buzzing around us made us feel like it more like 11 in the morning. It was a party from the second we walked in!

We stayed at The Silver Legacy.

BEST DECISION EVER.

You don’t even need to step outside…unless you dig those McDonalds Egg McMuffins, like we do, then you simply must walk across the street! Otherwise, since The Silver Legacy is connected to a few other casino/hotels, it was PERFECT. Everything we wanted was at our fingertips.

We didn’t need much. We wanted to have fun. It was my birthday for cryin out loud! Dancing, drinks, activity, food, games, prizes, live music, comedy shows, slot machines, craps, poker, spa, pool, hot tubs….it was all near us. Walking distance.

With no time to lose, we dropped our stuff in the room and headed back out into the action.

We found some band members from Three Doors Down. They ended up being SUPER nice!IMG_4468IMG_4469

These guys found a big chair.IMG_4477

Nicolle found a giant elephant.

I then had to save said elephant.IMG_4667

 

I found my happy place…IMG_4671

 

We made it until the wee hours of the morning. Then we needed a bit of sleep.

The next day was already here. I had BIG plans for the next day. Circus Circus. I am a grown up child. I would much rather play circus games than the slot machines, so that was the plan. Coffee, food and then GAMES!

One of us was WAY happier about Starbucks than the other.

Have YOU ever had a BEER FLOAT? Holy MESS!IMG_4679 IMG_4680 IMG_4678

Comedy show time!IMG_4681

FINALLY, sometime around midnight…or 2am…or 4ish…I really have NO idea what time it was….I got some birthday cake! Mmmmm! IMG_4682

Annnnnddd….our trip was complete. Fun was had. Laughter was abounding.

Super SUCCESSFUL little get-a-way. We will do it again. Hopefully sooner than later.

Some of our best little get-a-ways have been the ones we hardly even planned…

 

 

************* WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER ***********

JAYMA MALME

Congratulations doll face!! Tweet me, email me, FB me or snail mail me your shipping address!

*Note to EVERYONE: Thanks SOOOO very much for entering my first giveaway. It was a HUGE success. Everyone who entered was assigned a number and I used www.random.org to generate the winning number.

*******************************************************

We aren’t really snackers. Unless the kids are bored, then they can’t seem to eat enough. But generally, we eat the normal 3 meals a day and that is really all we consume.

Unless we are going on a road trip.

Then, all rules, regulations and calories go OUT THE WINDOW.

We eat. and eat. aaannnnnddddd eat.

*insert random topic switch*

The other day, I got this email saying something like “Hey, you’re super awesome and we love how many people love you you seem to have a nice little following and we would like to send you our product to try and then offer a sweet giveaway to your readers, would you mind if we did that?”

I responded with “DUH!! Here is my shipping address!”

AFTER THAT, I researched the company and made sure they were legit! (my bad, I will try harder to swap these last 2 steps in the future.)

*switching back to previous topic*

You know what snacks I actually do like that are healthy…. APPLES. I really do love a good apple. Whole or sliced. Plain or dipped in peanut butter.

Of course, the best way to enjoy an apple is on a stick, dipped and lathered in caramel…..

But, have you ever had DRIED APPLES?

HOLY MMMMMmmmmm!

*topic switch*

GUESS WHO THAT COMPANY WAS?

Bare Fruit

FRUIT UNDRESSED! aka…. NAKED FRUIT!

*topic flip flop*

We loaded up the truck, packed the few snacks I could find in the pantry and then the kids noticed the box on the front porch.

*TOPIC MERGE – watch how smooth this is!*

I squealed with delight as I opened the box….. it was my free sample (HUGE BAG) of Cinnamon Apple Chips.

Oh my heavens….DELICIOUS!

Sweet, tart, organic, crunchy, gluten free, cinnamonny deliciousness.

There is a slight chance I didn’t share much.

So, they were excited that I enjoyed their product and want to offer one of my readers a FREE CASE. Entry is EASY.

Alright….are you ready?

K, GO, FIGHT, WIN!!!

 

Preface: We overbooked a few weeks this summer but CHOSE not to back out of any of it.

A quick Friday afternoon to Sunday morning camping trip.

It’s only 50 miles away. But it will take at least 3 hours to get there.

I need a drink for this drive.

I. LOVE. SQUIRT.

Giant love hearts. *swoooon*

One more quick stop, to “top off” the propane tank. That was already full. And we missed the minimum 5 gallon purchase sign. AT $3.47 a gallon.

That was an expensive top off.

Then we drove.

and drove.

aaannnndddd drove.

Around the lake.

For like ever.

And then we arrived.

A meadow in the middle of nowhere the trees. A little flat opening begging for tents and campers. No sign of the lake that we just drove around for HOURS.

No cell signal.

No electricity.

No toilet.

Again, no sign of the lake.

But there were bears.

I can do this.

I CAN DO THIS.

We had a GREAT time. We laughed, we rode bikes, rode quads, played card games, shot BB Guns, paint ball guns…

Time to rush home.

Commence 3+ hour drive home.

We broke down.

Notice the CLIFF on the left side.

And the MOUNTAIN on the other side.

Enter MacGyver.

The dude has brains.

Like MAD SKILLZ BRAINS.

After about 45 minutes or so, he got the truck running, with fear of it shutting off again, we BOLTED. Driving like mad around this bumpy, windy, scary dirt road.

Did you hear the BUMPY part?

We hit a bump a bit too hard. Huz says “UH OH.”

With the fear of the truck shutting off, we are in super frenzy mode to check the bikes on the bike rack.

This is what they looked like at the beginning of the trip.

They did NOT look like this anymore. They where on the ground.

Giant metal hitch mount rack = broken.

In lightening speed, we unhooked and untangled all the bikes, stuffed them all inside the camper and jumped back in the truck.

We made it home.

Just in time to shower, re-pack the 8yo and drive him up to his bible camp and race back a dinner party.

I forgot what I was coming home to.

Just before we left, the closet broke. Again.

HUGE MESS.

Current truck status: 98% fixed – turns out the alternator died.

Current bike status: 70% ok

Out of 4 bikes….

- one bent wheel
- one severed brake line
- one destroyed drink holder

Current closet status: 12% worse

Time to pack for the next trip.

 

Biggest little weekend of Nostalgic FUN!

Great friends + road trip + Reno, NV = AWESOME WEEKEND!

I grew up here in NorCal and my parents would often pick us up from school on Friday and drive straight to Reno, NV for the weekend.

We often stayed at the Circus Circus hotel and obviously as kids we LOVED the Midway area. Games galore! Whenever we went on these spontaneous trips, my dad was always super generous. And by generous, I mean handing us money left and right to play games. Often he would even go to the carnival area and play the games with us. I remember this chicken flinging game…

I have GREAT memories of Reno, NV. Whether we were there for a car show (we never missed Hot August Nights, often we took one of my dads classic cars to show off) or just there for a quick weekend trip, it was NEVER a drag. My dad loved to gamble, and I remember him winning most of the time.

We ALWAYS ate at the steakhouse in Circus Circus called The Hickory Pit. I don’t believe it is called that anymore. We ordered the Prime Rib EVERY time.

I absolutely LOVE things that bring back super happy memories of my dad!!

Nostalgia.

This weekend was FULL of it. And it was good!

Some friends purchased a new car and had to pick it up in Reno. Therefore, they needed someone to take them to Reno. Our other friends offered to drive them. Either we invited ourselves or were invited to tag along…regardless of WHY we were going, we WERE going!!! Maybe we are cheap entertainment….

We shopped (AND shopped….AND SHOPPED) for HOURS.


This is why I can’t buy tall boots. I lack much distance between my bottom and feet. Although I must admit the UGG selection at this particular store was UH-MAZING!

Trish bought these and I was UBER-JEALOUS because I wanted the black ones and they didn’t have my size.

Hubs spoiled me with a hot new pair of jeans though. I can’t post the picture I have showing the jeans….

Then we got all dolled up to hit the town.

Me & Bry

Trish & Dave

Steve & Shannon

The whole crew

The girls…

The boys

Ooops, I meant to select this one…
 

We had pretty specific requirements for the evening.

1. TO HAVE FUN.

Ok, that was pretty much our only requirement. I may or may not have INSISTED that we go to Circus Circus.

We ate dinner at 11pm. Yes, 11pm.

Sometimes (ok, most of the time) I may be so whiney that I get my way….

We went to Circus Circus.

I FOUND THE CHICKEN GAME!

Yes, I got 1 out of about 8 chickens in a pot. I won a stuffed $100 bill. It was awesome.

We left Circus Circus shortly after I flung chickens across the room. We wanted to see other places.

We went across the street to the Silver Legacy. I should clarify that none of us are gamblers. We are ALL shoppers though. In case you didn’t know…

We walked around this casino looking at all the sights and flashing lights. We people watched. A couple of us decided to go out on a limb and put $5 into a penny slot machine. There are like 12 buttons you have to push in order to get the bar to pull down. It was complicated. I found this fabulous button that said repeat bet. I just pushed that over and over. Then as my huge amount was dwindling down, I selected the x20 per line button (or something like that). I won. It started dinging and flashing. I thought I may have hit a jackpot…I didn’t. I won $27. I was just as happy! I cashed out and was thrilled! My friend saw what button I pushed and she pushed that same button on her machine. She won also. She won $41. She cashed out as well. We were totally excited. We gambled for approximately 3 and a half minutes.

Then…..yes, then we went dancing!


(I have no idea what is happening here…)

The 6 of us danced and danced and danced. We LAUGHED until we cried. I think everyone should go dancing once in a while!

In fact, everyone should go to Reno once in a while. It was pretty much the best couples date night (and day) ever!
