Weekend Adventure

First, Happy Memorial Day. I hope people are enjoying the Holiday and remembering those who lost their lives.

Even though I’m working today, the last few days have been extremely enjoyable.

My brother came into town for the day on Thursday. Of course, New Jersey hasn’t seen much rain but it rained the day he came into town. We decided to go to Atlantic City because he wanted to see the Casino and Board walk (and of course I wanted to go to the outlets!).

Matt and I

I enjoy going to the casino but I never spend more than 30 dollars. I normally give myself a limit of 30 and exclusively play the slots. It equates to about an hour of playing.  I always walk away if I get to 60 dollars (but I generally just lose 30 dollars).  After about an hour I get bored or lose everything so it all works out.

Matt won 3 dollars and I won nothing (I actually only spent $10 anyways). I don’t understand how people can spend hours and day in the casino. I don’t have that much focus.


After the casino adventure, we went shopping at the outlets.  My brother and husband somehow convinced me to buy this BCBG blazer. I have gotten into a blazer mood lately so this was another unique one to add to the collection. I’ve been doing some minor wardrobe updates to begin with.

I mean who doesn’t need a blazer that looks like a carpet?

Sadly Matt had to leave on Friday.  The rest of the weekend was spent hanging out with the husband and working.  We ran a local 5k in Camden on Saturday and spent the day at the Collingswood May Fair and Car Show.

I think I mentioned before, that my husband is leaving again next week.  He’ll be gone quite a bit over the next year (to make up for the last 6 months that I was lucky he was around!).  So now that we have time to relax, it’s time to prepare for that.

It’s always stressful the week before he leaves for a while (hashtag so much to do) but we have almost gotten everything done. Plus of course we want to hang out!  Long story short, it was nice that our schedules worked out to hang some extra time with each other this week.

Anyways Happy Memorial Day and hopefully you are having a great day!

Questions for you:

Do you like the casino?

How is your Holiday weekend?

  1. I need a relationship with someone who is in the armed forces. Seriously. I have a problem with being around someone ALL THE TIME, so it would probably be perfect. I’m too independent. I need to work on this. lol.

    I LOVE THAT BLAZER. I always tell people I have no style because one day I’ll be in all athletic stuff, then Forever 21 (except I’m 25…) stuff, then all retro looking stuff. I’m all over the place and I love it!

    • Ha! I wish he wasn’t gone as much but that’s how it goes.

      I was surprised I ended up liking the blazer as much as I did!

  2. I have never been to a casino but it looks fun! I’m gonna go the next time I’m on a cruise ship and do like you, just limit myself to $30 on the slots and play. Even if I lose $30, at least I will have the experience to say I gambled once, haha. I’m glad you had fun visiting with your bro and also spending time with T before he leaves again!

  3. The only casinos I can spend any lengthy amount of time in are the ones in Vegas, because the ones we have around here just kind of depress me. I’m not huge on gambling, but I don’t mind going in and playing 20 or 40 to kill some time. Hope you’re having a great long weekend, Hollie!

  4. Way to exist in real life! 😉 Seriously, though, QT with loved ones is the best. I’ve been on a shopping kick lately too–as in I don’t actively avoid it, lol. Baby steps!

  5. Gambling has never been a draw for me. The only reason I once was interested was after watching 21. So I taught myself how to count cards (thank you YouTube) and that was the end of the interest. How do you and T “prepare” for him to leave? What does that mean?

  6. Love that you were able to see your brother! I saw mine too at a wedding on Friday night and then we had breakfast with our families Saturday morning.
    Love the blazer/carpet 🙂
