Friday Fun Things
Why am I up so early? Well, let me tell you.
Opey, the cutest puppy in the world knows NO boundaries and definitely doesn't care about what time it is. He woke me up around 5:30 a.m. today and since he was up, he ob viously wanted to make sure that everyone else in the house was up too. I decided to take one for the team and I got up with him so that my dad could sleep in a little longer. As soon as I got up and took him outside to pee, he jumped on the couch, curled up in a ball and started sleeping as I became engulfed in a game of poker on Full Tilt. I've been playing SO much poker online lately. I don't know why, but it would be great if I was building up my stack instead of watching it dwindle away.
Anyway, let's do a Friday FUN BLOG since I'm up so early on this beautiful sunny Friday. It's so cute seeing how excited my Maryland friends on facebook are today since they are having a nice blast of warm weather on the east coast. All morning people in Maryland are doing their status updates about the beautiful weather. My dad said "I miss the spring like weather we get in Maryland after the cold winter" and I'm like, "what do you mean you miss it? We get that warm weather every single day here. What is there to miss? - Am I right?? I know what he's getting at. I guess he means that you appreciate the warm weather a lot more when you aren't used to getting it. But, I for one am glad that I get to see the sun almost everyday. It has done wonders for my mood and my depression. That Seasonal Depression Thing is no joke, it really exists in my life and it's almost non-existant now that I'm living in a place where the sun is always shining.
So, here's a list of things I enjoy on Friday - I tagged a few people at the bottom and I hope you guys will play along...
FRIDAY FUN THINGS
My favorite low key place to eat on Friday:
Pizza and wings from New York Pizza. Of course, that was my summerlin pizza joint, I haven't found one in Henderson yet. Bonus points for anyone that knows of a good pizza joint in henderson that delivers.
Favorite Quick Weekend Getaway:
Brianhead, Utah - it's a quick drive from Vegas, it's a very scenic drive and skiing works wonders on making you forget about life, bills, and all of my other daily problems.
I imagine there are some awesome California getaways for me to explore, but I haven't ventured out that way yet. Although, my San Francisco vacation was a blast, but we stayed longer than just a weekend.
Favorite Fancy Place to eat at on Friday:
N9NE Steakhouse at the Palms (make sure to make a reservation for a Friday dinner)
Favorite Shows to watch on Friday:
The Office and Survivor (both shows that I DVR'ed from Thursday night). In fact, as soon as my father is done watching the Weather Channel, I'm going to hop on the TV and watch my favorite shows from last night.
Favorite Casino to gamble at on Friday:
MGM Grand of course (if I'm playing in the poker room).
Favorite Place to gamble on slots on a Friday:
Red Rock - they have the biggest slot floor and they give away lots of bonus comps to locals on the weekends.
This is all fine and good, but Friday is just like any other day to me since I'm not working. Although, I do notice that everyone else seems to be in a GREAT mood today and that's a catchy feeling.
Happy Friday Kids!!
I'm tagging a few friends - I totally made this Friday Fun Blog up, but I'd like to see what these people enjoy doing on Fridays.
Diva if one of the first blogs I check every single day. She's one of my life lines to Baltimore, she's a great writer and I have a feeling that we would be great friends if we lived in the same state.
Jay is a great read - he always makes me laugh and I think he might play along in my fun friday things blog!!
Karen is the best! I love reading her blog and she's one of the first ones I pull up in the morning. I usually don't ever miss a day and if she ever comes out to Vegas, I hope that we get to hang out!
SO@24 is a new blog that I've added to my "read daily" list. He's witty, young and I enjoy reading his blog. I'm taking a chance by tagging him because I don't even know if he'll participate in a meme, but I hope that he does because I'd like to know more about him.
Vegas Linda Lou is my favorite blogger in Vegas. We've hung out a couple of times and I hope to spend more time with her in the future. She's full of life and very fun! Let's all hope she plays along.
