Taken or not, I’ve never been a big fan of Valentine’s Day. However, it still has significance because it’s also my mom’s birthday. I had a fun weekend despite the constant lovey dovey stuff that occurred around me. Saturday was spent sending a few friends greetings via media text (I got lazy to mail anything out this year =P) and with the best friend. She celebrated the occasion earlier in the week with her husband since he had to work on the actual day. We had afternoon tea at The Rotunda at Neiman Marcus. Despite our reservations being for the next day (whoops), we were still able to snag open seating within a few minutes. I have yet to experience an afternoon tea that I didn’t like, this being no exception. The bestie gave me a Valentine’s Day card like she usually does every year, but also threw in a box of macarons from a place I haven’t tried yet. Nice!
My family and I headed to Graton Casino on Sunday to celebrate my mom’s birthday. She and I did pretty well on the slot machines. Unfortunately, I couldn’t say the same for my brother and my dad (heheh!). I even tried out a slot tournament for the first time. I placed third in my group, but not too well overall since they averaged out the scores of all the tournaments at the end of the day. Who knew how tiring it was to hit that darn reel spin button as fast as possible?! Still fun nonetheless.
Whether it was Valentine’s Day weekend or just another weekend, hope you had a good one.
