Happy Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day to all of my US friends.  Hopefully, you get to spend some time with your family.

While you are going about your day, please take a moment to reflect on Memorial Day.  Memorial Day is dedicated to those who died while serving in the US Military.

Memorial Day

Have a great day. 


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?
