Cross That Off the Bucket List! {Go to the Casino}

Hello there my good friends!

Just wanted to drop in and say hi, and happy hump day. And fill you in on my fun-filled weekend!

Saturday was mine and PJ's 12 year anniversary. 12 years we've been together, since I was a wee little 15 year-old girl. He's watched me grow up, I've watched him grow up, we've grown up together. Of course we've had our ups and downs but there isn't one day that I think I don't want to be with him. And of course we've changed over the years but thank goodness our love for each other hasn't. That man is amazing and the true definition of what a man (and future husband and future father) should be. Honest. Loving. Loyal. Hilarious. Strong. Assertive. And loved by all. Especially me! 

I know we'll have wayyyyy more than 12 more years together. It's been amazing spending our lives together. Love him so much.

Ok, the only photos I took from the day were of my love and I. And let's see the progression from awful to eventually, acceptable. 

Ok not so bad. But I have a big face and PJ's eyes look drunk lol!

Double chin, check! Aww and PJ is falling asleep on me. Nope, just loves to take pics w/ his eyes closed
Of course the blurry one would have been cute!

another blurry one that woulda been cute :(

The best it's gonna get!

Saturday PJ planned a little surprise anniversary date, and he didn't really think what he had in mind was a big deal. But oh, it was! He didn't know that his little plan to go to the casino was in fact on my bucket list. We had talked about how we wanted to go, but he didn't know that it actually made my list. So now I get to cross that off! Cha-ching! Well, not our wallets. No cha-ching there. We lost about $80 but that wasn't as bad as it could have been lol. I think PJ now has a new addiction. Uh oh.

He had originally planned for us to eat at the buffet there. I was telling him about some fancy restaurant that I had wanted to try that was in some casino but I couldn't remember the name. But as soon as we stepped off the escalator I saw it... Final Cut Steakhouse. This was the restaurant that I had wanted to try! So not only did he help me accomplish one of my bucket list goals, he also contributed to helping me cross that restaurant off of my restaurant wish list. Double cha-ching! Review coming soon, I hope. 

Ok, on to Mother's Day. I was blessed enough to spend brunch/lunch with PJ's mama and grandma Betty at Meritage in Glendale. Um, hello! This restaurant TOO was on my restaurant wish list. So in 2 days, I got to cross going to the casino off my bucket list, AND got to eat at 2 restaurants that I was dying to try. AND got to spend time with all the people I love. Then that evening PJ, my brother Jr, and I took my mama out to eat. We tried going to Benihana but a 2-hour wait?! Seriously!? No siree. Not worth it. I thought I actually heard some lady say that there was no way they were leaving and she was willing to wait. Um, can you say crazy? So we went over to BJ's at Tri-County mall. Yessss, 15-20 minute wait, that's more like it. 

Overrall it was a great weekend! Not looking forward to this one coming up though... gotta get the wisdom teeth pulled. Yes, all 4. Should I be scared?

Peace, and bacon grease!

Happy Anniversary! I love that you have a bucket list and restaurant list as well. Good idea! I may have to get on that for myself :)
