biloxi weekend

saturday morning, jay and i headed down to biloxi in honor of sue and leo's bachelorette/bachelor parties which also included celebrating leo's 30th birthday. we arrived some time around 2:30pm after stopping to eat lunch at Bates House of Turkey where their motto is "eat turkey, feel perky." umm, they had me at hello. their sandwiches were delicious. the drive really did seem to fly by thanks to a relaxing playlist of good tunes, as well as jay being a goober and singing every slow song to the T-Pain app on his phone. it was hilarious. will post later if i know how to upload it. i digress.

so we arrived at the Beau Rivage casino, check in, and get settled. i don't know what it is, but i absolutely LOVE staying in hotels. it makes me so giddy no matter what the place looks like. we walk into our room and check out the view. i hammed it up with a pic on the bed, and then noticed the telephone beside the toilet. JACKPOT! jay makes a silly pose and that was the first and last time we ever touched the thing. hehe. here are some pics...this was my first time ever in biloxi so of course, i was the tourist who took pictures like it was going out of style. luckily, i wasn't the only one. i have come to learn that if you offer to take a picture of a couple or family, they will gladly reciprocate the gesture and take one for us. score. the beau was really gorgeous both inside and out, not to mention the weather was fan-freakin-tastic. after unpacking and the such, we decided to go walking around within the casino. i lurves to go exploring in unfamiliar territory. after looking at all of the little shops, eateries, and casino tables, we head outside. the pool and jacuzzi that overlooked the ocean were open, and surprisingly a lot of people took a dip in the hot tub. the weather was so gorgeous that now i am *really* itching for spring/summer to get here.later we walked back up, and i snapped a quick pic of the sunset from our room. we bummed around some more and then start getting ready for dinner. how beautiful is this sunset? le sigh.
