Mohegan Sun: Part III

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.

After finishing dinner at Tuscany, we headed to Leffingwells (aka Star Bar) to relax and enjoy the massive planetarium dome. The “sky” continuously changes from dawn to dusk and back again. It’s neat to see and totally relaxing! 😀

The Casino of the Sky has a functional planetarium utilizing fiber optics to display the sun, moon, and stars accompanying the lighting effects of the Wombi Rock, which is a three-story high crystal mountain crafted of alabaster and more than 12,000 individual plates of hand-selected onyx from quarries in Iran, Pakistan, and Mexico; which were transported to Carrara, Italy and fused into glass.

At Leffingwells, Mal ordered me a glass of red wine, but I was pretty much stuffed to the gills, so I only drank a few sips of it.

The four of us had a really nice time at the lounge– soaking in the scene, enjoying some good conversation, and snapping some “couple-ly” V-Day photos.

Late Night Gambling

Around 1:30 AM, we finally hit the tables for some gambling! Gambling so late in the evening actually worked out well because the casino cleared-out a little and the four of us were able to gamble together at the same Black Jack table. We played for a couple of hours– winning, losing, hooting, hollering, and laughing quite a lot. I’m not much of a gambler (mostly because I hate losing money like that), but I had a great time! I am, however, a very conservative gambler, so I knew when to quit. In fact, Mal was very impressed with my “squirreling away” skills! Basically, every time I won, I would put the chip in my pocket instead of on the table where it would temp me to gamble it. Once I had gambled away my initial investment, I stopped playing. Mal joked that he was surprised that I didn’t start putting the chips in my cheeks like a squirrel! By the end of the evening, I won back what I spent on my Tiffany’s purchase… plus some!!! :mrgreen:

All in all, our trip to Mohegan was a fabulous way to spend Valentine’s Day!
