    And just like that, I'm back at the airport!

    Maybe one trip we'll head home to the same final destination - till then, we have our next Vegas trip! (Fortunately that's a few short weeks away!)

    I'll be moving into an awesome new apartment right before the trip too, yaaay!

    Waiting at Gulfport International before my 4-hr layover in Charlotte. Eesh! Glad I have books to read lol.

    Overall I'm taking home just over $200 of the $700 I brought - but I'm just glad I made it! The trip was a blast!! :wiggle:

    Love the photos of you two together. I have added Biloxi to my list of places to visit. Hopefully next year if COVID settles it's nasty ass down.

    Thanks everyone for following along! :wiggle:

    @Sonya I love youuuu. :blowkiss:Thanks for being awesome! We're pretty cute, what can I say. :rolleyes: But plz don't punch my boyfriend he just had surgery in his face. I like his face! :haha:

    @breanna61 you gotta come out to Biloxi, it's awesome! We'll probably be taking a few more trips out there down the line, we didn't cover hardly any areas! So much to explore!

    Thank you @rcc4au !! We'll try to leave some money in Vegas - no promises though!

    Thank you @Vegas Erica !!! Man I am so bummed I didn't see a gator but hopefully next time I will!

    Hey @thecarve - here's my BBQ stop in North Carolina during my 4-hr layover from hell (more time for pie I guess!):
    20200614_153650.jpg

    Smoked brisket, pulled pork, mac n cheese (SO good), hush puppies (yum), mashed tatoes (meh), fried pickle - spicy and good!

    And never skip the sweet potato pie. Holy shit it was so good and delicious omg. Why did I pay extra for cornbread when I could get more pie slices?!?! Ahhh.

    Fine! Be that way. :haha: I guess I'll give him a pass for the Christmas Carol Serenade in the Sahara parking lot last year. "There's Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Todd..." :p

    I miss you guys.

    I've loved following you both on his trip. Glad you made the trip, sad it was so bloody annoying to get there. Thanks for all the updates.

    You are a cute couple.

    Excellent report! I just wish I could fly to the "East" coast with only $700 and pull it off.

    Sorry about the Plane change, just be glad when the pilot was driving the plane around DFW, you didn't have to pee. Been there, it's not fun. Planes land on one side, take off on the other, so you have a 50/50 chance of being screwed depending on the terminal. Or at least that's the way they used to do it, I haven't been through there in 5 years or so.

    Now I'm just gonna come out and say this, cause nobody else is going to, @MCann, that's a pretty obvious hint right there. I forsee a VMB ceremony in the near future.
     
    surely this won't go kaput

    I like to play craps but did not on this trip. Palace had the lowest minimum of the 4 or 5 casinos we went to (I checked everywhere) and the lowest one they had running said $10 minimum and $200 minimum buy-in. They had one other table running and it was $15. Beau had, last night, six tables running, all with $25 minimum. They never went under that during my stay. Everywhere else was $15 or more on every table.
     
    Beau Rivage booked same day as Luxor. One will win. Leaning Biloxi.
    Vegas or Biloxi. Going somewhere for Labor Day weekend...

    P.S. Awesome dress LOTD (better shot of the dress in MCann's TR) Concensus is you are both adorable!
