Erin and I took (what is becoming) an annual trip to Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun casinos. On the way to Foxwoods, we went to Mystic. We both bought these really cute Helly Hansen anchor print raincoats. Now I’ll look forward to the rain, so I can wear my awesome new raincoat. I love the shops in Mystic, especially all the jewelry I can’t afford. But thankfully, we could afford some really good pizza. We went to Mystic Pizza again. At least this time, I finally watched the movie.
After pizza, we spent some time at Mohegan Sun. I bought some stuff from Lush, because I’m addicted to that store. I’m going back there in a few weeks for Andy’s birthday. Hopefully I can stay out of Lush, but I doubt it. Haha! After that, we went to Foxwoods so we could check out the new outlet mall they added. It is actually a pretty large outlet mall, with tons of good stores. I may have purchased some more Coach bags…OOPS! I think it would have been cheaper to have a gambling addiction, as opposed to outlet shopping. Oh well, maybe someday I will learn my lesson.
It was finally time to check into our hotel by the time we left Foxwoods, intending to finish the outlets later.So we loaded up on some snacks and waters, and checked into the hotel. The hotel itself was fine, but we had a lot of issues with the shuttle service to the casino. We got the shuttle on time, but they held it for a party of 37 females, each wearing excessive amounts of various perfumes. The shuttle smelled like someone dropped a nuclear bomb inside a Perfumania. Since we weren’t already irritated over having to hold the shuttle for these ladies, one of them forgot their ID. So the shuttle had to turn around.
Thankfully we weren’t that far, BUT STILL. We had to crack a window, so I wouldn’t be the first person to get high on perfume. Once we finally arrived at the casino, the ladies realized the shuttle drop off location is at the opposite end of the casino, from their dinner res. One of the girls said they should have taken an Uber. I said, “YES, YOU SHOULD HAVE!” Since we arrived later than intended, the wait for a table at Hard Rock was an hour. We put our names in, and decided to finish checking out the outlets, we ran out of steam in the afternoon and didn’t finish the rest of the shops. Once our table was ready, we ordered some delicious drinks and food. We enjoyed the rest of our evening. Minus the shuttle driver arriving 40 minutes late picking people up. Don’t worry, we complained about that, and the rude girl at the front desk. Thankfully the GM of the hotel was very pleasant to deal with, when we called to complain about the situation.
We decided to sleep in the next day, our feet were killing us from all the walking. But we did manage to get ourselves some PANCAKES. All is good with the world!
