Casino Royale

Last weekend, my sister and her hubs came to visit!  They arrived right when I got off work so we had some time Friday afternoon to hang.  Although the cupcake shop we went to only had three left...all Lemon Blueberry by the way (yuck!), we still had a nice time.  I showed off our model home and we picked up some last minute camping supplies.  Read: candy.

Friday evening we headed over to one of the mansions on the east side for a Junior League fundraiser.  It was a casino night...which ended up being kind of lame...but we still had a good time.  Even if I did have to watch two magicians.  Am I the only one who is creeped out by magicians?  And even if I can't figure out how, I know they're fake...so I think they're just liars.  Matt insists they're magic.  I insist he is also a liar.




This was the view from the back door of the house.  Gorgeous, huh?




Dave and I paid $10 to do a wine pull...and pulled a wine worth $14.79!  We kept telling everyone how we made money, but Matt was insistent that we actually lost $10.  He's lame.


Saturday morning we got up bright and early to go camping!  To say the car was full would be an understatement. 




And because somehow all of the rest of my pictures did not upload...I will leave you in suspense until tomorrow about how the camping adventure went.

But I will give you a hint. 

Rain.

60 mph winds.

Low 30's at night.

Were the lemon blueberry cupcakes bad, or do you not like that flavor combo? Lemon blueberry is my favorite cupcake combo of all time! I live for summer so I can scout out this particular cupcake deliciousness! :)

I'm not much of an outdoor girl to begin with....so that's sounds like my worst nightmare. Hopefully you all made the best of it and had a good time!

And this is why I don't camp.

Glad you survived!

Only three cupcakes left? That is just wrong. Sick and wrong. And I agree with you - I hate magicians. Evan thinks watching magic tricks are so cool but I think it's dumb.

Those pics with car + camping supplies are hilarious! Too bad the weather was rotten on your trip but I bet you guys made the best of it and had fun anyway!
