Something cool I saw there.
One of the perks about being 21 is finally being able to gamble! I've been talking about gambling for the past six months, and finally I was legally able to. So, the day after my birthday my mom and I headed to the casino. In our area, we have two casinos-Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods. Since we really couldn't find anything to go to Foxwoods, we headed to Mohegan.
The trip took about an hour to get there, so I came armed with a book from my summer reading list. (review to be posted this week, I promise!) When we got there, I had to get a player card. Upon registering, I had received a bonus gift since it was my 21st birthday which was $15 worth of credit to redeem at the slots, and a free shot glass. (Which I still haven't used yet)
Then we decided to gamble a little bit, before heading to the Season's Buffet. The buffet in my opinion wasn't the greatest. Partially, because I couldn't find much food to eat that I could have without getting sick and because the food I did manage to eat wasn't very good. Needless to say, I was disappointed.
After the buffet, we decided to do some shopping. One of the stores we hit up was Tiffany and Co, where I planned to buy the double heart necklace in blue. The service was amazing. The lady there was extremely helpful, and very friendly. It made my first trip to Tiffany's amazing, and I was so happy. Once I picked the necklace out, my mom decided to buy it for me as a birthday present. Needless to say I was excited. While I was there I also saw the matching bracelet, but decided that it wouldn't be the best idea. We shopped a little bit more, where we picked up an elephant charm for my Pandora bracelet and two new CDs.
After shopping, I still had some promo money left over on my card. My mom encouraged me to spend it, which I was a bit hesitant on doing. But, I decided to anyways.
And I'm glad I did, because I ended up winning a hundred dollars on a slot machine! I was so excited, so I kept on playing the last few dollars. I ended up not winning anymore, but hey a hundred dollars is a hundred dollars.
So then I decided to get the matching bracelet at Tiffany's. I figured it was a sign for me to get the matching bracelet. So, we decided to go back. I am so happy that I got the bracelet, because it's now one of my favorite places.
Overall, it was a great day full of Tiffany's and luck. If you plan to go to the casino, definately don't go to the buffet but go to Tiffany's.
