Saturday, we spent most of the day over at Mohegan Sun. We played some slots, walked around and explored. The casino is really nice and had a ton of great shopping and restaurants. We wanted Mexican for lunch and headed to Sol Toro. It’s owned by Michael Jordan and I was a little worried that it wouldn’t be that great. I was wrong. Everything was served very authentic and I had one of the best margaritas that I have ever tasted. It was perfection. We also tried the queso fundido as an appetizer and each had a burrito for lunch that neither of us could come close to finishing. We were told that we must order a side of guacamole and were glad that we did. They make it fresh and even do it tableside if you order it as an appetizer. We were pretty stuffed, but managed to share a fried ice cream for dessert. We were ready for another long walk after lunch.

We headed back to the hotel and took a nap and then got up later and had a little Valentine’s celebration in our room. We had some champagne (sparkling wine) that we had bought from a vineyard in Florida awhile back. It was good and went well with the few cake balls that I brought. Geof got me one of Tory Burch/Leanne Shapton cosmetic bags and some cute lipgloss and a headband from Forever 21. I loved everything! After our celebration, we headed back up to the casino and did a little more gambling. I left with some extra cash in my pocket and that is always a good feeling, since I’m not big into gambling.

Sunday, we got an early start and headed home. There were some outlets on the way back and Geof agreed that we could stop at Clinton Crossings. We went to Coach, Kate Spade and Juicy Couture. I ended up getting a cosmetic bag from Coach to store my makeup for big trips. Now I have a cute one from Geof for my purse and a big one for traveling! Once we got to New Jersey, we went to Houlihan’s for dinner and had a nice time. We got home to 2 very excited dogs and the snow is still here. I was hoping that a lot would have melted! All in all, it was a perfect weekend and I felt the Valentine’s Day love.
