Easter Weekend - Big Casino Wins - $20K update

March 29th, 2016 at 03:04 pm

For Easter Weekend we went to my MIL's house about 2 hours away.

Saturday my MIL tried to kill me with food. Homemade Indian Tacos for late breakfast, then a nap, then homemade deer stroganoff for lunch, almost immediately followed by pheasant stir-fry for dinner. SO STUFFED.

Sunday was Easter, we went to church and then back at the house we had an Easter Beer hunt that was very fun. My SILs buy 6 different beers/ for each person and then label them so you know which ones are yours. They hide them all over the yard, deck, vehicles etc. Somehow I wasn't able to find one of mine and no one can remember where they hid it...lol. MIL lives right on a lake so we are there all the time in the summer time and I am sure it will turn up! Then we played that saran wrap game where they made a huge saran wrap ball and hit prizes (candy, chap sticks, $1 bills, giftcards) in the ball and you race to unwrap it while the next person in line is rolling a dice. Every item you uncover in the saran wrap you get to keep and you keep unwrapping until the person with the dice gets doubles. Once they get doubles they grab the ball from you and they start unwrapping and the person after that tries roll doubles...etc. I had never played this before and it was so fun! We got a big pile of candy, about $5, $15 Subway GC and $25 Olive Garden GC! Sweet! Then we had sweet and sour pork for lunch and napped. In-between family fun we made a few trips to the casino that is 5 mins away and we just kept winning! We ended up $1700 ahead! We are full, happy, tired, and a little richer!

We had several great hits, but here is our biggest one! $911.29 on a $1.50 bet! (Plus another $39 for those other coins). We also had $450 hit, $302 and $250 and a few other $100+! So much fun!

We have a big electrician bill for rewiring our hot tub that we were getting ready to take money out of savings to pay, but now we were able to use this money and not have to take it out of savings, yeah! That was $1300. Then we also purchased 4 tickets to Garth Brooks concert in May and that was $320 (my cousin will reimburse us for 2 of the tickets), and we also paid a few more weeks on the 52 week challenge. We were also able to put $600 in savings as well from extra casino money and payday!

    What fun! Your holiday weekend at MIL's sounds more like vacation than what many of us visualize as [dreaded] weekend with MIL. You've been doing so many repairs at various rentals and personal residence, I'm sure you've set up some sort of tracking as there are tax benefits at rentals and it's really important to track upgrades, updates and repairs for personal residence to protect you if something goes awry.

    Snafu - Thanks! Yes I have a file for home improvements for our personal residence and then I also have a Log Book for all expenses and incomes from our rentals. Right now I just have the book and have been tossing in the receipts and statements......actually logging everything is on my never ending to do list!

    Congrats! Great way to remember the win by taking a photo. Love that you can put it toward your home improvements.
