Happy Birthday Curt + 2 days!

I have been super busy at work plus some technical difficulties have gotten in the way of my blogging.
Curt and I headed to Reno on Friday morning to celebrate the big 4-0! We wanted to make sure we were there on time to watch Mizzou play some basketball. Sitting in a bar at Circus Circus drinking beer and watching basketball was quite entertaining.
Besides watching Mizzou win we actually witnessed Arizona win. I didn't think they even deserved to be in the tourney--yes, I am talking about MY OWN TEAM like that. But, hell, now they are in the Sweet 16.
Anyway, we watched some basketball, checked into our 80 buck a night mini suite and had a great time. I took a nap and then went back about 4:30 to watch some more basketball with Curt, who had made some friends with some guys from Portland. So there was a huge cheering section for Portland State, Curt's alma mater.
After basketball and a little gambling (at one point I was up 15 bucks on the EBAY penny slots--shoulda stopped then) we headed out to dinner.
Curt and I were entertained by the guys walking around trying to look bad ass in Reno with their trophy girls.
Saturday morning we cruised a few pawn shops. I found a guitar along with a case for 150 bucks. I am going to take a beginner guitar class soon. The pawn shops were a little sad. I mean, there were a ton of engagement rings (at great prices).
We headed out of Reno about 11:30 and hit Cabela's--our whole reason for our redneck weekend trip. Curt describes Cabela's as a redneck Walmart. If you are a hunter or fisherman/woman--this is where you go for all of your needs.
Curt got his ammo, rifle sling and a few other things. We also had lunch at their little restaurant.

After that we headed home. At one point we hit SNOW! You all know how much I love winter. Luckily the snow was wet, but for some time it was blowing pretty hard.
We got home and had a little time to relax before heading to Jacob and Aileen's for dinner with some of their other friends. It was a good time.
I slept in this morning and then caught up on some shows, then cleaned the house and got ready. Headed to Mia's, had lunch with Mia and Lexie. Then Mia and I headed to a movie, Sunshine Cleaning. It was really good: funny and sad. But a great movie.
Curt and I watched Burn Before Reading--which was pretty funny. After some time it kinda dies and it isn't so funny.
Time for another workweek, which is only four days for me as I head to Florida on Friday to visit Kate and meet baby Dash!!!!! Can't wait.

Glad to hear that Curt had a great birthday. Sounds like you had a fun time in Reno. Have fun with your "new" guitar. 4 days of work aren't too bad since you get to visit baby Dash! Hugs -M

I dunno, I've never seen people with video cameras taping themselves in front of displays of animal trophies and stuff (like I did at the Bass Pro in Springfield, Mo.).

I think Bass Pro might trump Cabela's in the "ooo, classy" category.
