Weekend Recap - Atlantic City

Happy Monday my friends! How are you?  How was your weekend?  Anything fun and exciting happen your way?  There wasn't a lot going on here really, but we were able to get a lot done on Friday night and Saturday with bills and stuff around the house like groceries, yard work, etc.  It was a GORGEOUS and sunny day on Saturday and the perfect day to be outside!  I even got some crafting done as well which I will show you at a later time.  :o)

On Sunday, we went with our friends on a bus to Atlantic City to the Trump Tower Taj Majal casino and had a blast!  This family rents a huge bus every year to go to Atlantic City for the day and have for the last 12 years as a rememberance of their grandmother who passed away (not sure how long ago) but they have continued the tradition and now that they had with her.  They each bring friends with them so that there is a full bus and there is beer, sodas, snacks, movies, music, etc.  And it really is a huge family reunion and the neatest thing! 

Anyway, we got there and was shown around and how to get our own "Trump Card" and began gambling.  We are not big gamblers so we played the penny machine and I even played the dollar machine a few times and the first time I played it I won $50 bucks!  Had I bet the MAXIMUM bet however, I would have won $500 bucks!!! ACK!  Oh well.... live and learn, right?! $50 bucks is $50 bucks! :o)  We were there from 10:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. yesterday and then on the way back they played the movie "The Hangover".  All I can say is OMG I laughed my arse off and even my husband thought it was hilarious, which actually surprised me! HA! 

Here are some pictures from our day:

This is the bus ride down:

The inside was GORGEOUS with a lot of fancy details:
The Jersey Shore:
The Boardwalk:
More inside pictures:
The buffett food was OVER PRICED AND DISGUSTING to say the least - it cost us $54.00 for 2 buffetts and the food was NOT worth it - I think I need to speak to the Donald! HA!
On the way out:
Us and our friends at the end of the day:
Leaving Atlantic City:

Sorry for the picture overload - but there was so many nice ones that I hated to not include them all.  I hope you have a wonderful day - we are expecting a lot of rain here for the next 2 days.   P.S.  I've not been able to catch up with my Friday Follow or get to your blogs this weekend, but will try and catch up later tonight. Sorry about that - it's been a very busy weekend as you can see.  Have a great day my peeps! :o)

Lots of love and hugs,

    My husband and I thought the Hangover was overrated. I think we need to watch it again because everyone else says it's hilarious. We must have slept through it or something. :)
