Treat Yo Self 2011

I've got three words for you...

If you have no idea what I'm talking about, watch this first (and if you still have no idea what I'm talking about, I have no idea why we are friends. Only kidding, of course...).

You know, we work hard out here at the farm (or pretend to anyway, most of it is just fun for us). But David does work hard at school, and I work semi-hard at work, so inspired by Parks and Rec we decided to take a day to treat ourselves. This year, we went up to STL for a day trip. Our hard-working friends, Jamie and Holly, joined us and a new tradition has begun.

First stop, Starbucks!!!

Pumpkin spice latte for David, soy latte for me

Jamie and Holly didn't have breakfast before we picked them up, so their first treat of the day was McDonald's breakfast!

Our first stop in STL was the West County mall (didn't get any pictures of that, we were too busy shopping at H&M and Francesca's!). After working up an appetite, we really treated ourselves...


California roll in the middle, philly tempura roll on each side.

Jamie convinced David to drink some warm sake with him.

After we finished the sushi, they brought out this for us!

Of course no trip to STL is complete without our final stop. At least, that's the case if David and Jamie are in tow.

David's game is roulette (go 36!) and Jamie likes blackjack. Holly and I kill time with $20 on the penny slots :) Our favorite slot machine was called "Kitty Glitter." It was fabulous.

I think it's illegal to take pictures in the casino...don't turn me in!

We had a blast and are already throwing out ideas for Treat Yo Self 2012. Can't wait!!!



  1. Treat Yo Self 2012 is a trip to New Mexico to visit us and we'll take you to the casino in Santa Fe where we just won $2,000 in the Penny Slot Machines.

  2. Cindy - If you can guarantee a win like you had, we'll be on the next plane out there!


Thank you so much for visiting! We enjoy reading each and every one of your lovely comments.
