So yesterday I was planning on writing a post once I got home. Well that didn’t happen due to last minute plans we made for a friend’s birthday dinner. We were invited to our friend Tommy’s birthday dinner in Elgin and felt bad passing it up. We aren’t able to attend the bachelor/bachelorette parties and the wedding so we couldn’t say no to dinner. I got off work, came home and changed real quick, then we got in the car and headed to dinner.
We ate at a modern burger place in the Elgin casino called, Prime Burgers. It was absolutely amazing! They had delicious drinks and mouth watering burgers. I ended up building my own burger. I didn’t hold back either. I decided on buffalo meat with bacon, pepper jack cheese, chipotle mayo, lettuce and onion strings. MMMM was it tasty. I only ate half because it was so filling so I saved my other half for lunch today. It was still just as good warmed up as it was last night.
After dinner we went into the casino to and gambled for a little bit. There was a 50’s band playing that was actually pretty entertaining. I could barely understand them but the beat was easy to dance to. Kyle and I ended up going to play some black jack. Well it was actually I sit down and play and he tells me what to do. I’m not a very good black jack player and the last time we used this strategy we won quite a bit! So I sat down and won two rounds…after that it was all down hill. Let’s just say that I only ended up playing for about 20 minutes. BOO!
The night wasn’t totally ruined after that. Tommy and Ashlee ended up winning some money so it was pretty exciting! We couldn’t stay very long because we had an hour long drive back home but we had fun while we were there. Hopefully we will get to see them again soon!!
Once I got home I went straight to bed and zonked out! My body must have thought it was a long week!
I’ll fill you in about today later, we’re off to the Ohio State bar to watch the Bucks play Indiana. We’re all decked out and ready to cheer them on to a WIN!
Good luck to all your teams!!
