"new beginnings"

Chuck and I celebrated New Years Eve at Little River Casino Resort!! We got there around 9pm, all dressed up, (it was FUN to get all dressed up) and had dinner at the Willows, All you can eat Crab Legs (Yummy!) Then we headed into the auditorium to watch Risque (a band), they were great!!! We sat on the couch all the way in the back, it was private and the view was amazing :) We kissed and celebrated the New Year!! It was an amazing night. After that we played a little, I won $10 :) and watched the other band in the grove lounge~Happy New Year!!!
