 So here is part 1 of various outfit photos I've been taking over the past week, it's from Monday night, a.k.a the night where I went out and spent to much money. Jenny took me to a casino. You can just tell where this story is going right? If you've been reading my blog for awhile then you may remember a post from back in August when Jenny took me to a casino for the first time and I won about $200 on penny slots. Sad to say, this was not the case this time.

 We played blackjack and I just lost all my money right off the bat! Jenny, however, was having better luck than I was, so I just sat at the table for about two hours watching her. Doesn't sound very amusing? It actually was, partly because of Jenny's nervous energy, partly because of the fun college guys that came to the table to play with us, and partly because of the dealers and casino people that liked to come over to chat with us. Apparently we (or more likely Jenny - she was quite amusing to watch play) were quite entertaining, so we had various boys come over to play with us and the guy, not sure what he's called, who watches all the tables came over to joke around with us every so often. Jenny discovered that he worked at casinos in the old days so she asked him if he ever had to take people out back and "break all of their bones" - although he wouldn't quite fess up to that, apparently people did sometimes "open doors with their faces." Moral of the story: don't cheat at casinos :)

So I've been borrowing this bag and these shoes from my mom for my past two nights on the town (if you can really call them that - I like to ^^) and I kind of have a tentative plan to stash them in my suitcase and bring them back to D.C - I love them! The bag is so cute and beaded with a vintage-y feel and the shoes, although they are suede so I can't wear them in the Minnesota winters, are so adorable and comfortable! Hopefully mom won't read this post, so she won't know of my plans :)

Ok I was planning on putting together this post with my outfits from Tuesday, but I don't think I can! There were just too many photos. Oh well. I'm going up to my cabin in middle-of-nowhere Wisconsin for the weekend to spend New Year's with family and a few friends, and it is sure to be a fun time despite the lack of cellphone reception, not to even mention no Internet. So I will just put up this post and possibly schedule the next one to come out while I'm gone, and hopefully take some pretty, snowy shots of Wisconsin! Hope you all have a fun-filled New Year's Eve!

P.S. I forgot to mention this before, but I officially have over 50 followers!! Thank you all so much for reading my blog, and although I know that in the grand scheme of things it's not that many people, it means a lot to me that people actually care to look at what I write (and wear). And all that sentimental stuff. So thanks, I appreciate it :)
