Last month when the Powerball Lotto was $750 million, I had to be a part of the excitement and hype to win. Even though I live in the gaming capital of the world, Las Vegas, we do not have the lottery here in Nevada. To buy Lotto tickets you have to drive to Arizona or California and when the jackpots get high like that the lines get looooooong.

50,000 miles on Southwest Airlines took me to Canada, Mexico, and a bunch of other US destinations and it can take you places too!

TGIF! As we are calling it an end to another work week and getting our plans together, I thought I would share a fun thing that my husband and I did on our recent Anniversary getaway to San Francisco. You could make this work on a trip to some place or even in your own hometown.

So this trip we didn’t make any plans and decided we would see where the city takes us.

We strolled around looking in the shops and decided on a little place to have a quick bite to eat and tried dim sum. While we were eating we jumped on Yelp to try and find a sports bar, so we could watch the Preakness Horse Race and the place to find sports bars was the North Beach area of town, again within walking distance of where we were.Read More
