Hello WinStar blog friends! It’s been a minute since I’ve blogged over here, but don’t worry… I didn’t forget about you! I took a break during the holidays, but I am back.
February really had me in a funk between the gray skies and rainy weather, and I was not feeling like myself. But I made a New Year’s resolution to make 2018 a year where I focused on self-care and being my own biggest cheerleader. So I am keeping my resolution, and last weekend I took a trip to WinStar to totally recharge my batteries!
Tripp, my wonderful boyfriend (you may have read about him here and here), bought us tickets to see OneRepublic at the Global Event Center back around Christmas, so I was thrilled when I remembered we had them, and on St. Patrick’s Day weekend nonetheless! They’ve been one of my favorite bands for a long, long time. I remember listening to them on the CD player in my car when I was learning to drive more than ten years ago!
When I realized the tickets fell on St. Patrick’s Day (lucky me!), I went ahead and booked a hotel room for Friday and Saturday night so we could make a weekend of it. We enjoyed dinner before the concert on Friday night at Kirby’s Prime Steakhouse — it was SO yummy — and then took in the show.
We stayed Saturday for the St. Patrick’s Day festivities, including a few green beers and testing our luck at some electronic games. I got lucky and won a couple hundred bucks and promptly decided to cash out! Tripp is still trying to get me to play poker with him, but I am nowhere close to his skill level.
It was an amazing weekend with a mix of fun festivities, relaxation, good food and great music. I highly recommend planning a weekend just like it for yourself, and maybe your weekend will be even luckier than mine!
