Gaining a sister and $12

I'm gearing up for a wedding weekend, because on Sunday, my brother is marrying Brittni (center), so Brodi and I are gaining a sister!

We took our new sis out last weekend to a casino for her bachelorette party.  After indulging in the best buffet we have ever eaten for over an hour (yes, over an hour, but you're not understanding how many options of food there were), we went to WIN SOME MONEY. 

After about 20 minutes of staring at a 1 cent slot machine and looking like cave men, our evening went sort of like this:

Me [to the lady who worked there behind the counter]: Um, okay this is probably the dumbest thing you've ever been asked, but um, we can't figure out how to put our money in the slot machine.
Casino Lady: [blank stare]
Me: We tried and didn't know if there was a special token....
Casino Lady: No, you just put your money in.
Me: Oh, well we tried and it didn't seem to take our money.
Brodi: We grew up Baptist... [sidenote: that of course explains why we don't know how to work a slot machine. or dance]
Casino Lady: Let me show you.
Brittni: We thought we could just put the cash in and then if we won, tokens came out.
Brodi: Brittni, I think that's Chuck E. Cheese

So, casino lady came and showed me how to put my money in and guided me to what buttons to press.  She ended up winning me $40 on 1 cent!!

At the end of the evening, I came out $12 ahead, Brodi came out $8 ahead, and Brittni came out $4 ahead.  So, although I am a Christian and am not promoting gambling, when you stick to NOTHING but the penny and nickle slots, it can make for some ridiculously fun few hours.  I seriously put $1 in the machine and played off of it all evening.  I'm not gonna lie- I felt like a winner leaving with $12 extra dollars and it almost paid for my buffet.

P.S. If you're not a blog "follower", I would LOVE to have you follow me.  I'm dying to gain 100 followers and plan to run a Tag...You're It sale when we do, so I'm adding this shameful plug.

I'm linking up!!
