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.

    • Ohhh, you did a really good job! I hope that you will keep doing a thing in the same way. You really have a talent for it. Also, I would like to present myself. I am an editor for the edureviewer and we need your help with video reviews. Check out this article https://edureviewer.com/services/speedypaper-com-review/. We want to make a special video review for it. If you are interested in it. Just contact us!
    • I just found the Wet and Wild Rebel Rose Full Collection Box. Prettiest thing I have ever seen. It is me! Planning to get it as soon as I have the money. So romantic, and has skin care too. I WAAAAAAAANT IT! I don't know how to add a photo, but you must see the brushes. 
    • I tried to talk myself out of it but ....👿 is on my shoulder. Spoilers: besides the brow product shown above Becca Ultimate Lipstick Love Coverfx Perfector Face Palette IT Cosmetics Confidence In A Cream Morphe 15 Shade Palette 5 other items yet to be revealed. It is getting more and more impressive; might be getting it.
    • According to the American Academy of Dermatologists, shedding 50-100 strands is perfectly normal and you don’t need to go for any treatment for that. A hair grows in three phases including growth phase (Anagen), resting phase (Catagen) and Shedding phase (Telogen). Initially, a hair remains in the anagen phase for about 2-5 years before going into resting and shedding phase. During the resting period, the blood supply to the hair follicles becomes limited which as a result makes the hair delicate. In the Telogen phase, the hair is completely disconnected from the hair follicle and sheds off, where it is replaced by new hair from the same hair follicle. Since the old hair is replaced by a newer one, the overall density of the hair is not disturbed in this case.
    • In time for Valentine's Day, a little haul from Shop Miss A came today. I love it. Shop Miss A is an online makeup shop where everything is $1.00. I've been buying for years from them, but I am excited to see that they have more skin, hair, and body care items now! And the products are quality. Research revealed that many of the new skin, hair, and body products come from Fisk Industries on New York. Fisk makes Barielle, a quality nail care line, and hair products distributed by Sally Beauty Supply, among others. You can get hair masques, scrubs, serums, hand creams, body oils, for $1 each! I notice a lot of things sell out often on Shop Miss A. So I check the New Arrivals sections often. You have to stay on top of it. I also try to keep a budget and limit myself to 5 items or fewer so my total will be under $10.00 with shipping on each order.  Latest haul: Luxe Beauty Care Collagen Skin Cream - full sized skin cream for $1.00, in a nice box. It does have mineral oil, characteristic of a lower priced cream. But also shea butter. I don't mind mineral oil.  A0A Studio Pure Cotton Squares - great Shiseido cotton dupes for $1.00. Package is little, so you have to purchase these often, but they are great!  Pink faux fur makeup bag - Lancome had a promo with a pink faux fur bag and I wanted it so badly, but I think you had to pay $60.00 for the GWP, so I had to pass it up. I got this instead! Dermactin T-S 2 step collagen masque - This is from Fisk Industries. I love 2 step sheet masques. It even comes in a little sleeve like a CD case. Cute! Excited and only want to shop more from Shop Miss A! I have another haul on the way with Fisk hair balm, scrub and some other things.
