Two in a row

Last night, we had a blast celebrating Kyle’s bday with the fam.

All the usual feast suspects were also in attendance, including madre’s glorious enchilada casserole

beans, jars of salsa that will set your soul on fire

and she also picked up some cupcakes for the Ravens fan.

After our amazing dinner, we went home to put Liv to sleep, then Trev and Mik came over to stay with her while we met everyone out at the casino. The last time I was at the casino was years ago (to see a Pink concert) and I’d forgotten how much fun it is, even though I’m not big into gambling (but I do enjoy the slots machines).

I snapped this pic before I remembered that no photos are allowed…


(the Pilot’s beer, my rita with lots of salt)

It was SO much fun. I wasn’t too lucky, but thanks to the Pilot we came out ahead πŸ˜‰ Either way, it was a great time to go out with everyone and for the first time in who knows how long, we were out past midnight on a Friday night! Paaaarty animals.

In the theme of not knowing who we are, we’re on a short road trip for a date night we’d planned a while ago.

Two date nights in a row- quite a lovely treat.

See ya in the morning with the rest of Winter Shape Up Week 2: the video + workouts.

Hope you’re enjoying the weekend so far!

    Sounds like an incredible weekend!!!
    We don’t get to the casino much either (occasional trips to Vegas) but I live Craps when we go – I take $40 and play till it’s gone or I make a little – fun times!!!!

    That sounds like an AWESOME day/weekend- the enchilada casserole and the margarita look fantastic. πŸ˜‰

    Yes that casserole is making me hungry. Will you share the recipe?

    Is the stairmaster workout something specific? I am visiting my parents this weekend and they have a stairmaster, only time I get to use it.

    Fun! Would love to know the recipe for that salsa…

    Hahah, party animals is right! I don’t think we’ve been out (let alone awake) past midnight in months. It’s funny how much life can change when you throw a pregnancy or baby into the equation! Nice to see you guys getting out for two nights of fun πŸ™‚

  8. Lucie@fitswisschick on February 3, 2013 at 2:03 am

    2 nights out in a row?? Now that sounds fantastic and you ARE the party animals!! That enchilada casserole looks to die for.
    And you just reminded me that I have to spend some money on a casino visit soon πŸ™‚

  9. Emily @ on February 3, 2013 at 8:39 am

    Looks like fun!!! Glad you two are able to have two great nights together in a row to celebrate you!

    Looks like a great weekend. The meal looked amazing as well. I completed my cardio today as well as some yoga so I am good to go now for Sunday and can enjoy the rest of the day with the family and maybe a nice cold (even though it’s snowing here and 15 degrees) beer! ENjoy your Sunday!

  11. Hayley@pbrunnergirl on February 3, 2013 at 9:25 am

    Those cupcakes look delish! I am going to be making some today, chocolate with pb frosting =) Have a fabulous Sunday!

  12. Jessica @ Prayers and Apples on February 3, 2013 at 11:37 am

    I’ve actually never been to a casino! But that rita looks yummy πŸ˜‰ Happy Super Bowl Sunday! πŸ™‚

  13. Tracy on February 3, 2013 at 12:51 pm

    I’m so jealous of your 2 date nights in a row! We haven’t done that in……not sure if we ever have!!

    I’ll add to the requests for the enchilada casserole!! Pleeease! My kids would love!

  14. Lauren @ Eat Like An Elephant on February 3, 2013 at 1:50 pm

    That enchilada casserole looks awesome! Hope you enjoyed your date nights!

  15. Audra on February 3, 2013 at 8:28 pm

    The casserole looks so yummy!! I’d love for you to share the recipe!!!

  16. Gina @HealthLoveandChocolate on February 3, 2013 at 10:13 pm

    I hope you enjoyed your little road trip and second date night, it’s always fun to do a little something out of the ordinary. πŸ™‚

  17. Bek @ Crave on February 4, 2013 at 12:29 am

    Yay, date nights are always fun! Looks like a great bday bash too. I enjoy going to the casino..but for me I very quickly find out if I’m lucky or not lucky. Men always seem to win the big bucks- why not me πŸ˜›

  18. Kirby on February 4, 2013 at 4:01 pm

    Another request for that enchilada casserole recipe – it looks amazing! Thank you!
