Ok, where did we leave off? Biking adventures, right? After our biking tour of Mystic, we headed back to Mohegan Sun for an afternoon at Elemis Spa. Each of us were provided with a spa service to review, so I chose a deep tissue massage. My back is always a mess (because of scoliosis + sitting at a desk + CrossFit/running), so I hoped a deep tissue massage would loosen up my tight muscles. My…

The six of us rented a house in Mystic, Connecticut for the weekend, so we all drove down on Friday night.

A girls’ weekend with four runners = morning run! Yay! The four of us set our alarms and woke up bright and early to get our run on around the Mohegan Sun grounds this morning. Unfortunately, there weren’t any actual trails around Mohegan, so we stuck to the roads as well as a few random large parking lots and a landfill. The weather was beautiful (cool, but sunny) and we enjoyed a really nice 5.6…

Hi, guys! Say hello to my special visitor: Anne!! I picked her up from the airport yesterday afternoon and, of course, we needed to make at stop at Marylou’s for delicious, dessert-like iced coffees. I got Anne hooked on Marylou’s the last time she visited me. Before we hit up Marylou’s, Anne and I headed to Whole Foods for lunch. It was way past both of our lunchtimes, so we were starving! On the menu:…

Just in case you missed it, here’s the first part of our adventures at Mohegan Sun: Fun at Mohegan Sun: Hotel & Happy Hour. After enjoying a cocktail at Bar Americain, Mal and I headed to BALLO Italian Restaurant and Social Club for dinner. Inspired by San Galgano in Tuscany, BALLO’s décor was designed to replicate an Italian cathedral with its huge arches, stone walls, and dim lighting. Later in the evening, servers remove the…

Which do you want first: the good news or the bad news? Let’s keep it positive and go with the good news first. The good news is that Mal and I had a blast at Mohegan Sun. The bad news is that I am sooooo hungover today! I guess I had a little too much fun last night. The folks at Mohegan Sun invited Mal and me to spend a night at the hotel and enjoy…

Even though Mal and I spent less than 24 hours at Mohegan Sun, I felt like we enjoyed a real vacation. We made the most of our time there and really lived it up, so our experience was the perfect little get-away. After our Hotel Happy Hour, Mal and I headed downstairs to do some gambling at the Black Jack tables. Cameras are not allowed in the gaming area, so I didn’t snap any photos,…

Mal has been loving his birthday today! Year #28 is off to a great start for him! Our morning started with breakfast in bed. Pretty fancy, huh? Ordering room service is always such a treat. Plus, don’t 28th birthdays deserve it? 😉 We had quite the spread of goodies for breakfast. Eggs + bacon + homefries. Whole wheat toast, freshly toasted right in our room! 😉 Fresh berries. And lots of coffee. With the Sunday newspaper. 😀…

Mal and I are having so much fun at Mohegan!! We don’t want to leave! Our mini-vaca still has a few hours left to it, so I’m going to enjoy them and post my full recap later this afternoon. But, for now, here are some photos from yesterday. Self-portrait gone wrong! 😆 Full review of our trip coming soon!
