(edit: The concert was AMAZING. By far the best Christmas present I've ever gotten. Also, there seems to be a reasonable chance that I might die tonight from the volume of cigarette smoke inhaled combined with the soul sucking power of the stingiest slot machine ever and the hour that I sat beside it while it raped The Fiance of his money and dignity, so just know that I love you all. And I am still open to suggestions about things to do in Biloxi.)

We've arrived in Mississippi for my Christmas present- the Keith Urban concert and a weekend away. I'm so excited, I cannot even tell you. I have been looking forward to this weekend for 3 months now and I can't believe it's finally here.

The drive wasn't bad minus the fact that besides a lot of broken trees, there's absolutely nothing to look at. The Fiance fell asleep about 30 miles into the 80 mile journey, which is about 29 miles later than he usually falls asleep and I rocked out to the radio. He fell asleep rather quickly and very shortly after telling me that he was feeling light headed, so I spent a good ten minutes trying to see if he was breathing, which is a challenge when the car is bumping the way it does on the highway. I'm pretty sure the irony of killing us while trying to see if he was alive would've been appreciated by many.

Now we're just hanging out in the hotel for a little while before heading off to the casino to throw our money away to the pretty lights and spinning reels. And then the concert tonight (eee!) and then we're wide open for tomorrow, which is good in that we can relax because I think we both really need that, but at the same time, we feel like we should see the sites and the only activity we (read: I) can come up with is the Gulf Port outlets on the way home.

If anyone knows anything about Biloxi and has any recommendations about things to do on a Sunday during the day, let me know. Otherwise, the Fiance will get to live out his favorite fantasy tomorrow- shopping at an outlet center with precisely zero electronics stores. Oh the humanity.

2 things - win a jackpot and you will love Keith Urban. Personally my only fault with the concert a couple of weeks ago is my ears were ringing but that's probably because I'm old.

Have fun.

I don't know if it's still open, but the Blow Fly Inn (sounds gross, I know) makes the yummiest crab cakes ever.

Have fun, win big!

Thought of another one. Mary Mahoney's is yummy too. It's not cheap though.

I would say go to the Jeff Davis Presidential Library however that was all lost in Katrina....my first and so far only trip to Biloxi was right before the storm...we went there and to the site of the oldest oak tree in the United States....that did survive. It is HUGE and there is a tree house. I don't remember where it is exactly however.

There's things to do in Biloxi besides gambling?? Huh. Who'd a thunk.

Have fun!
