Birthday Getaway: Lincoln City

 Joel and I took at little one day mini-vaca mid week to celebrate my birthday a day early.
We stayed a night in poor man's Las Vegas at the Chinook Winds Casino in Lincoln City.
Unfortunately, the room we booked was having some work done on it, so we had to stay in a smoking room :( 
But the manager gave us a discount and free buffet for two. 
So even though we had planned to eat dinner elsewhere, we couldn't pass up a free buffet ;)
P.S. I could probably start a blog dedicated solely to pictures of my husband
 giving me a weird look because I'm trying to take a picture of our food. 
After dinner we went for a walk on the beach at sunset.  
 I wanted a nice picture of myself on my 28th birthday...but every selfie I took, I looked soo tired, because guess what? I was!! So here's some goofy pics and a pic of how I felt about my selfies. 
The next morning we had breakfast at the Seafood Grill at the casino.
We had a great view of the ocean from our seats.
 I really liked the dining ware they served our food on.
Joel had a seafood omelette, and I had monkey style pancakes.
Usually I enjoy a savory breakfast, but I couldn't pass up salted caramel sauce with pecans and cinnamon sugar cream.
After checking out, we did some damage at the outlet mall, and then headed to beach to walk around some more, and try to burn off some of the calories we had consumed!
I finally wore the sequinned pineapple shirt I got at the H&M in the Forum Shops in Las Vegas.
Joel & I were both pretty tired, and as much as we love exploring, we also love our home.
So we came home early to enjoy the nice weather in our own backyard.
Joel made a delicious dinner, we played cribbage, and I actually painted my nails!
The Everett Oasis is coming together nicely.
I am very blessed to have such a wonderful husband.
It was so nice time to spend with him and to have a day off in the middle of a busy week!
I have a couple of more birthday posts to come, because I like to celebrate birthday week :)
