Mohegan Sun: Part 1

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

What a whirlwind trip to Mohegan Sun! We didn’t even spend a full 24 hours in Connecticut, but we managed to squeeze-in a whole lot into a short amount of time! 

Instead of creating one massive post about our Mohegan adventures, I decided to split it up over a few different posts that will debut in the next few days, which, in my opinion, makes the whole experience much more interesting for you and blogging much easier for me. It’s a win-win situation! :mrgreen:

Late Afternoon

After about a 90 minute drive down to Connecticut, we arrived at our hotel, checked-in, and unpacked. It was just about 5:00 o’clock, so we started our mini-vacation with a round of brews. We chatted, relaxed, and sipped our Harpoon bottles while we readied ourselves to go to Mohegan Sun for the rest of the evening.  

Early Evening

Around 6:00, we finally made it to the casino. Marie celebrated our arrival! 😀

Mohegan is absolutely gorgeous inside! In many aspects, the decor is Native American in style. The artwork and structural design throughout the casino has a very Native American feel to it with its earthy colors, nature symbols, and elegant cultural accents. In addition, several mechanical wolves stand high atop rock structures inside the gaming areas, which were a little strange, but sort of cool at the same time. Of course, I took a million photos like a good little blogger would do! 😉

Mal, Dave, Marie, and I wandered around the casino for about an hour, checking out the sights and sounds, before deciding to split up. The men gambled; the women headed to the spa.

Marie and I both had manicures, which were luxurious, relaxing, and turned out wonderful. I picked a deep grape-y color for my nails, while Marie picked a shimmery crimson shade. I loved having some girly time together! 😉

After our manicures, Marie and I did a little shopping in the mall-like area of Mohegan, which has a ton of high-end stores, like Coach, Swarovski, and Tiffany & Co. I may have purchased a small Valentine’s Day gift for myself from Tiffany’s! 😉 It’s my first piece of jewelry from the store, so it was especially enjoyable to purchase for myself! 

Cocktail Hour

Once we finished shopping, Marie and I relaxed at the bar at Birches Bar & Grill.

We each ordered a glass of wine white and shared a Tiffany blue, heart-shaped sugar cookie that I received with my purchase. 

I LOVE frosting on sugar cookies!!! 

Marie and I enjoyed our wine and some good conversation for about 45 minutes before the guys met up with us for a drink. 

Our dinner reservation wasn’t until 10:00, so the four of us shared a plate of cheesy fries to tie us over. 

Lovebirds on Valentine’s Day! 😉

Mohegan adventures to be continued…

  4. Good for you for buying yourself something! I want to see a picture.

    I made sugar cookies that look just like that one, but with pink frosting. They were part of my Valentine’s Day present to my boyfriend, which also included a delicious meal I made for him.

  5. That sounds like so much fun! I love the native american theme.
