Bingo! and Easter Decor!

Pin It Now!




Tonight I finally started decorating for Easter! 



I feel like I haven't been home long enough lately to pull out the Easter decor but here it is 11:00 pm on a Monday night and I should be in bed, after all, it is a work night!  But...I went to play Bingo with my daughter tonight!  She's not your typical 19 year old...she plays bingo with all the silver-haired ladies 1 - 2 times a week!  Tonight I was feeling lucky so I decided to go with her. I really don't like playing Bingo because when I don't win it feels like I just wasted my time...but tonight we were lucky!  We won!  We would have won $1,199 but 2 other people also won that game so we had to split it 3 ways with them. Still $400 is pretty good! I split that with my daughter so I came home with $200!  I was so wound up and not ready to go to bed so I decided to decorate for Easter!  


Now I need to get to bed...it's going to be so hard to get up and go to work tomorrow morning!

Do any of you play BINGO?

UPDATE:  The bunnies aren't real chocolate! I've had them for years!

Cindy, I use to play Bingo all the time. The game got so costly, so I stopped. Also the smoke was just way too much for me. They did not have a non smoking room.
In Kentucky it hardly cost anything to play. But when I moved to South
Carolina it cost a fortune.

I have not played Bingo since I was a kid...but winning, and taking home, $200. sounds like fun to me. I'll bet your daughter was tickled, too. Pretty, pretty Easter things here today- xo Diana

Oh what fun to win unexpectedly like that - total guilt-free spoil-me money.

No wonder you couldn't sleep for thinking what bargains were to be had with your cold hard cash.

Lovin' your table, looks great!

Victoria said...

Wow, how exciting that you won some cash! I enjoy Bingo, now that my boys are older and passed the stage of ripping Christmas presents open, we often play Bingo on Christmas day and they win their presents...they love it too! It makes the gift giving/opening process go by much slower:)

I love your bunnies!

Fox Hollow Cottage said...

WooHoo. BINGO! That is awesome. I went with my MIL once but I didn't really get into it. Maybe I should try again? Loving the chocolate bunnies. They look so real!

Happy Easter =)

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I love those bunnies, Cindy! I bought my first "chocolate" bunny this year and I love him. Your table looks wonderful! I love the tiered tray with the eggs, too. You've got a perfect Easter tablescape here.

Elyse said...

Nope, I don't play BINGO but after reading this, I may check the schedule at the local rest home!

Love the faux chocolate rabbits. I have never seen them here in England. Teal and chocolate brown great Easter colour scheme. X

Home Fragrance said...

You have such a lovely home. Congrats!

Judy Bigg said...

Your table decor does look very pretty. Hey, I don't play Bingo but my 90 year old Dad does. He has a great time with friends.

Elsie said...

Congratulations to you and Lauren on your win. I didn't know you could win that much playing bingo.
No wonder those silver-haired people (like me) play...hummm maybe I should play. Love your bunnies and your fake chocolate
eggs. I had a friend of mine tried to eat my fake chocolate bunny.

The Easter decorations looks great. I like the idea of putting egg shape chocolate. Congratulations for having a lucky day.

Cindy said...

Thank you Zoe. I bought those a few years ago at Marshalls and Home Goods. I think they may have them every year with their Easter décor but I'm not sure.
