A Little Work, A Little Play!

I've spent the weekend getting ready for a trip to the Beau Rivage Hotel and Casino on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. The company I work for hosts a meeting there every year at this time and it is always very enjoyable. The food is great and the accomodations are beautiful

I wish I enjoyed gambling more, but I really find it boring. I've tried hanging out in the casino to be sociable with the other meeting attendees, but the odor of smoke is overwhelming. I much prefer to wander around the shops within the Beau Rivage. They have some great gift shops and upscale clothing stores, along with several good restaurants and a yummy coffee shop! Between meetings, I like to grab a cup of coffee and a mini fruit tart or a brownie, then sit out on the veranda to soak up a little sushine and read a book. It doesn't exactly sound like a wild and crazy hard-partying casino visit, does it? But, just getting away and relaxing in a beautiful, sunny setting is just what I need to recharge my battery!

  1. I have never been to the Beau Rivage but I have only heard great things about it. I would probably just read a book too. I never go to our casinos here.

  2. Oh please take me with you. Girls just wanna have fun!

  3. I'm with you, gambling is not my idea of fun. I work too darn hard for every penny to just give it away for what?

    I would totally be hanging with you the whole time :)
