Wordless Wednesday: Harrahs Casino in New Orleans!

Isn't this is a great shot of the Harrahs sign? I'm pretty please with myself on this shot, this is NOT a PR shot, it's mine!

During my trip to the Niche Mommy Blogging Conference in New Orleans, I got to sneak in some time to visit the Harrahs Casino in New Orleans which is within walking distance of The Roosevelt Hotel, (the conference was held at this hotel and this is where I stayed, amazing hotel with so much within walking distance!) here are some pictures:

Get Social With It:

I got to visit the Casino with a great blogger pal Maria from we visited during the evening and then I got a day shot of the exterior the day we went to the Insectarium, but the cool part is that we Tweeted the Casino to tell them we had a great time, and they tweeted us right back! Don't you love when brands use their Social Media to truly 'engage'? I know I do!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Tweet with @harrahsnola on twitter

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - 'Like' them on Facebook too (and of course don't forget to tell them you saw them featured on Ascending Butterfly!)

Wordless Wednesday: Hand of Faith Gold Nugget was on Display!

Check out that shiny nugget! On loan from Golden Nugget Las Vegas and weighing in at 62 pounds with a value of $5 million, the "Hand of Faith" gold nugget is currently on display in Atlantic City at the Golden Nugget.

It was found in 1980 by Kevin Hillier using a metal detector near Kingower, Victoria, Australia. The gold nugget was only 12 inches below the surface in a vertical position!

The Hand of Faith is the biggest gold nugget in existence, the second-biggest ever discovered, and the biggest ever found with a metal detector. Kevin Hillier sold his gold nugget find to Golden Nugget for over $1 million. If only being in it's presence brings me the same luck!
