So, last night we had a kind of last-minute poker party at our house. Meaning that the SO had mentioned it to a friend of ours who usually has poker parties at his house, and we didn't hear back from him until yesterday afternoon that people were coming over. Hell, I didn't hear about it myself until Thursday night.

12 people showed up, of which 10 played poker. We played 3 rounds of poker, with a $20 buy in each round. I was on fire! I had several 3 of a kinds, a full house, several straights... and won the first two rounds. Woke up this morning with $120 in my pocket - not bad! Of course, the SO paid $60 to play, so really we're only up $60... but still, all in all a good night.

When I was straightening stuff up in the bedroom (since people were going to be going in there to use the master bathroom), I picked up the massive pile of crap that had accumulated on top of my tallboy dresser over the last... 2 years? And in doing so, I found a favorite necklace that I thought I'd lost one night out at dinner. I was certain it had fallen off, and slipped through cracks on the pier. But no! It was in the massive pile of jewelry on top of my tallboy!

Lucky Poker Necklace Lucky Poker Necklace

This is one of my favorite necklaces. I thought it was lost, found it recently, and wore it to win 2 poker tournaments!


So I ended up picking up my dresser & vanity top (which desperately needed doing, as I hadn't done for at least... 2 years? Maybe 3, since there was an old paystub of the SO's from 2002), found a beloved missing necklace, had a great time, and won $120. And the clean up wasn't too bad this morning, so all in all, a good night!

I really like that necklace. Did you make this one too? You have such pretty jewelry.

Congrats on winning. Other peoples money is always more fun to spend. :D

No, I didn't make this one. I got it at the Bon (Macy's, that is).
