Saturday was my best man's 30th birthday & he invited us to Lake Charles to gamble with him. Yes, that's right. I said my best man! J is one of E's looooong time friends and he's always been an awesome guy. He also saved Gracie when she messed up a couple of years ago. For the longest time I kept telling both of them that if E and I got married one day that J would be my best man. And then E and I booked our flight to Vegas for our wedding... and we called MY best man to come do his thang. He booked a flight and hotel room for him and his gal and were there on our special day. <3 Lake Charles is about 2 and half hour drive so we didn't think twice when he invited us.
  • Gator, my Filofax reminding me of our mini vacation
  • Major accident on our way to Lake Charles, LA which kept us in a standstill for over an hour
  • After the standstill we went in and out of crazy thunderstorms with clouds like this
  • Our hotel room looked alright but the bed hurt like crazy
  • Our view was glamorous
  • Signed up for my first Fan Club card
  • E with his chips & J standing in front of a restaurant that looked super shady 
  • E's 'I won $20' face with J smiling next to him
  • Grub at the hotel restaurant - The Seafood gratin was ridiculously good
  • Walking down the steps to the first floor to find better slot machines
  • I won $80 on the Family Guy slot machine, def my favorite.. hence all the pictures haha
  • & the last picture is of the toilet in our hotel room.. with a razor blade at the bottom..
Overall the trip was fun! We got to hang out with our friends and made some new friends too. We're not gamblers so we didn't go hard in the paint on the slots but E did make some cash playing Blackjack. One thing that really stood out to us was how friendly the dealers were. They taught ya how to play and told you stories about gambling situations they've seen. Extremely different from what we expected. Yeah the room and food were crap but we weren't there for that. We were there to spend time with our good friend and that's exactly what we did. Happy Birthday J! <3

..till next time ;]
