I had an amazing weekend. It was one of those weekend that seem to last forever, and the next day is never Monday. Sadly, Monday did finally come, but that was to be expected.

The weekend included a 24 hr. whirlwind road trip to Atlantic City, NJ. I’ve never pulled into a casino at 2.00 a.m. in the morning, and I can’t say I would want to do it again, but it was fun! En-route to a baptism, my friend and I decided it would be better to get a room at Harrah’s instead of waking our hosts up at some ungodly hour in the morning. So we found ourselves, backpacks on our backs, walking through flashing lights and bleeping slot machines.

Travel Tip: we got our deluxe hotel room last minute for $35 plus taxes on priceline.com and then we got an upgrade because we came in so late and they knew which rooms they weren’t going to fill.
