Night out at a casino

After a long week of working and taking care of the family, spending some time outside of one’s home and relaxing is quite appealing. Many parents today actually don’t spend enough time taking care of themselves mentally. It is perfectly acceptable to want a break every now and then. There are many different activities that can be enjoyed for a night out on the town. One of these is going out to a casino.

Casinos provide a wide range of casino games. While many people today understand these games due to their use of online casinos such as, it is still quite easy to learn a game you’ve never played. Slot machines are probably the easiest type of game to enjoy at the casino. These games are usually video slot machine and can have either three or five reels. Five reeled slot machines are preferred by many as they create additional pay lines which mean players may place multiple wagers on one spin. Slot machines also vary in the coin denominations they require to play which means it is easy for parents to choose a game which fits best in their budget.

When visiting a casino, dinner should always be a part of the evening. You’d be hard pressed to find a casino that doesn’t have at least one restaurant, it’s the kind of thing they want to offer to keep you in there! However, the majority of them will have several different restaurants. Parents can opt for different cuisine, some may even be international, as well as varying formality in regards to the dining experience. Many parents prefer to dine in a more formal setting which they do not have at home. It gives them a chance to enjoy the ambience and be waited on. Dining out on a casino night also makes it special as they can eat at a leisurely pace and truly enjoy one another’s conversation.

Remembering to count my blessings

Remembering to count my blessings can sometimes be over shadowed by everything not going right in my life. As I sit here watching cartoons with Sean boy I’m reminded of my many blessings. I’m home with my youngest, playing trains, watching a little TV, coloring, and sneaking bits of chocolate, together we are enjoyed the morning. I’m blessed to be able to spend quality time with my little guy. I’m also blessed that I get a little time to myself once he goes down for his early afternoon nap. Sometimes I just sit on the couch, TV off, and relax. Doing nothing for a few minutes prepares me for the rest of my day.

Big sister is at school and will be staying over for tutoring. I’m grateful that we can afford to send her to a private school and her after school tutoring, twice a week is a blessing as well. I’m blessed and sometimes it’s hard for me to see it. Just found out that the school Jasmine goes to will slowly be introducing Jr. High classes over the next three years. By the time Jasmine gets to 6th grade Amite Christian Academy will be a full-fledged Elementary and Jr. High, we are excited about that.


My hard working husband is at work trying to make a living to support us. I’m blessed to be married to such an amazing man, and he’s just as blessed to have me in his life.

It does get crazy around here, the little one loves to get into mischief, he reminds me of Dennis the Menace. Everything I own has little flaws to it thanks to him, but I can’t be mad at him, he’s a kid, and that’s what kids do.

Despite all the sleepless nights, battles with homework, early mornings, a laundry pile that never gets smaller, and a constant battle with the dishes, I wouldn’t change a bit of it. This is my life, and I’m so blessed.

It’s easy to look at all the bad, it’s more productive to focus on all the blessings.

Day after day…


Hour after hour, day after day, life is just slipping away, and it’s time to have some fun. I’m talking real fun, you know the type. The cut loose kind of fun where you leave your iPhone and watch at home, kick off your shoes and just a good time. I don’t think I’ve had […]

It’s been a little over a year since I started this blog. I was at Niche Mommy Conference last year in New Orleans and was inspired to share more about myself. I wasn’t really inspired to share about me and my family on my main blog, Fabulous Mom Blog, so, Cleverness of Tiffany was born. For the […]
