A to Z April Challenge Letter C

Chocolate, Champagne and Casino..... as my daughter Selena calls it my Holy Trinity. There was no way to pick just one C!  Chocolate has to be first! With the Reese Peanut Butter eggs, hearts, pumpkins in particular. Why the cups taste so much different I have no idea and why the eggs, pumpkins and hearts can't be around year 'round I don't understand either! I guess I should be extremely happy they aren't! I can't even imagine my hip size if they were!!
Champagne, yum! What is there not to love?  Bubbles good! Taste delicious! I love champagne.
Casino, living in Southern California I'm so close to the Indian Casino's it's scary!  Mind you, if I lived in Las Vegas I'd be living out of a shopping cart, I'm sure!!  As it is there are 5 casinos within 25 minutes of me. Too many! Too close! My Mom and I spend one night a month at Harrah's Rincon. We have dinner, we gamble and we go to bed too dang late!!  I know what you are thinking when you live so close why spend the night?? Because the bathtubs in Harrah's rooms are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! (okay mainly because we stay up way tooo late! I swear my Mom is like the energizer bunny at the casino! I say uncle way before she does! I'm too old to go to bed at 6AM!!!)
make money at the casino
C is for Casino, Champagne and Chocolate. What are your vises?

A to Z Challenge blog everyday except Sunday (per the rules) with my theme being what makes me happy, what inspires me and what makes me ME!!!  So be prepared for more information about me than you ever wanted to know!!

 I could use a click!

  5. Well, not liking chocolate I think you can have all of my share. But you are right, Champagne is always delightful! We lived in Reno for 6 years, what a blast!

  10. I'm with you on the casino's, I'm ashamed to say I love to gamble and every year when my husband and I go down to the Islands besides the beach I'll be in a casino.

    Chocolate I can take or leave! Strange, I know!

    And the Champagne, I'll make a deal with ya..you can have mine, OK?

  12. C is beginning to seem like heaven! I love cooking and chocolate. I guess when we get to S, I'll be admitting my real vice: shoes!

    Good luck with the challenge!
    My best,
    Terri

  13. Hello, fellow A to Z-er! My vices are Beads, Books, and Bad Movies. I have too many of each, but that won't stop me from getting more! :-D

  14. Your C's are perfect, Connie! I can't even imagine staying up that late...your mother must have the willpower of an Olympian. Chocolate and Champagne! Both should be had every day! And 5 casinos? Haha, I wouldn't know the first thing about one, but it's great you can enjoy your time with your mom!

  15. I'd say coke zero, stories (books, film, news), and chocolate. I'm enjoying some omazing madeleine brownies now :)

  16. My mom loves the casino, too. Personally, I could take it or leave it. I usually have more fun watching my mom gamble than I do gambling myself! But I am SO with you on the chocolate!! :-)

  20. freshly baked bread, dripping with melted butter, yum... but none of that starts with "C"

  21. I just had champagne for the first time last year and was happy to find I like it. I'm so picky about alcohol that it's tough to find something I can stomach without making serious faces.

    My number one vice is Mt Dew/Mellow Yellow. Mmm, but only one a day with the occasional cheat.

  22. Chocolates and champers yes, casinos make me want to run screaming....

  24. The vices I'll admit to -- :) -- are chocolate and way too much hanging about online.

  25. My daughter says the peanut butter egg has the perfect ratio of chocolate to peanut butter. Much more so than the heart, tree or any other shape. It is a good thing they are only around for a short time each year or I'd be the size of a house.
