And they say gambling doesn't pay!

Recommended Posts

I went to Ruidoso, NM this weekend. They have a very nice Casino and Resort that we stayed at called "Inn of the Mountain Gods". First of all the room and view were AWESOME!!

 

Anyways - of course I went to the casino! Went there almost all day Saturday and about 3 hours Sunday before we left. All-in-all I walked away with obout 50 more dollars than I went in with! I brought $200 and never played past the first $100!! I "stayed alive" as they call it, for a long time :)

 

I was up about $250-$300 at one point, but lost some, because I was having fun! Oh, and I was mostly playing Blackjack.

 

Just wanted to share that with everyone! :rotfl:

teehee, my hubby loves to play blackjack too.

I don't have much luck with gambling, but anyways, my hubby and I went to laughlin for our honeymoon, and he gambled and actually earned money, which was awesome! we basically ended up coming back home with most of our money, so his gambling basically payed for our honeymoon, lol!

 

Inn of the Mountain Gods - I love the name! I bet it was gorgeous!!!

HAHA! Well it kinda did :( I was up and should have walked away!!! Or at least colored up (for those who don't know: trade in smaller amount chips for larger amounts to condense) when I was up by almost $300 just my winnings and kept playing with the initial $100! LOL! Oh well :)

I love me some Blackjack! I am afraid to go gambling though, cause I couldn't stop myself and walk away if I needed to.

My bf and I love going to Vegas and Laughlin, but we never have a lot of luck. We both love blackjack, but we rarely come up. I also like the Wheel of Fortune slots. It's addicting! I've actually won money playing those.

 

"Inn of the Mountain Gods" sounds so beautiful. Do you have pictures?

The only casino I've been in, was in Kansas City. Way too noisy for me. Could only stay there for an hour or two.

    • I have around 200 brushes, how do you guys decide which ones to toss? Also, Currently, I store mine in about 8 Glass Jars, how do you guys store yours?
    • Painting hair is difficult because many people do not take the time to look at hair as a combination of shapes, but rather attempt to paint every single strand. If you look at someone's hair, you will start to notice that hair seems to fall in pieces or chunks: the bangs and every layer of hair has a different shape to it. Once you are able to understand hair in this way, you will be able to paint curly hair masterfully.

      Study the image of the subject or the live subject of whom you are painting the curly hair.

      Dip your brush into any shade of paint which you want to use in the hair.

      Add a few drops of water to the paint to thin it down.

      Paint the basic shapes of the hair onto the head very lightly to capture the nature of the hair. Because this is curly hair, it will probably be somewhat round and large in shape. Focus on the top of the head and note the way that the hair swoops in either direction - where it is parted, whether it falls flat, and in what direction it moves.

      Paint the general shapes that comprise the sides of the hair. Focus on the left and right sides individually, observing the differences. Leave the finer details for later.

      Use multiple shades of color to create realistic looking hair. Layer the paint and note areas of light and dark in the subject. Certain chunks, or sections of hair will have different tones because of how the light hits it.

      Paint the details of the hair. Continue to look for shapes and areas of color rather than individual strands. Add the finer details, including smaller areas of varying color, defined corkscrew-shaped pieces of hair, smaller wisps of hair that stick out around the silhouette and frame the front of the face.

    • I’ve recently become interested in Koren Skin Care. Bought some Wonder Pore products but don’t really seem satisfied. Purchased off of Etude House! 
    • Prada candy gloss is my absolute favorite! I got it for mother’s day and I already need a new bottle it’s more of a body spray than an actual perfume. But I have gotten so many compliments when I wear it!
