Kicking Off Our Summer in Atlantic City

Well the Hubby is officially out of school for the summer! I know he was super excited to be free for a couple months. We decided to kick off the summer with a vacation.

We have been to Atlantic City a few times and really enjoyed our trip last year in June. 


I have been receiving hotel offers since the last time we stayed. Since we could get a free hotel rooms at the Tropicana, we decided to take it!

The Tropicana is a great hotel located right on the boardwalk. It's got a huge casino, nice rooms, good restaurants, and shopping.


We had a couple nice days where we were able to walk on the beach and enjoy the sun.




My sister decided she was going to make fun of my selfie-stick. I, however, loved it. I was tired of going on vacation and trying to take good pictures of us. I hate to ask people to take our picture, this was a great solution, so don't judge me!

The Hubby decided he was going to get into the ocean. Let's just say the water was probably about 55-60 degrees! Brrr...


My in-laws came with us. We had a great time walking up and down the boardwalk!


We didn't have any real success with gambling this time, but we were able to play slots and poker and have a great time. The Hubby and I each won the high hand in the Tropicana poker room.




We were able to enjoy the pool one day. They have an excellent view!


We had a couple really chilly days. We tried to make the best of them. I did have to buy a sweatshirt!



We had a great time. I hope we can go back again soon. It's only a 10 hour drive and the beach makes the trip well worth the drive. 

I wish it was a more popular destination because there is a ton to do for families.

We had a great time and it was a good way to start off summer break!

Until next time,

Kara

Date Night Jar

The Hubby and I have been together 8 years. The one thing we have consistently argued over for those 8 years is the question, "What do you want to do?"

I consider us to both be intelligent adults, but when that question comes out of the other persons mouth its like we become fools and have no thoughts.

Our common answer is "I don't know" or "I don't care". 

Well I found something to fix that problem. Our date night jar!


I saw the idea on Pinterest (where all ideas live of course) and decided it was an inexpensive, crafty solution to our problem.

All you need are Popsicle sticks, markers, a jar, and your list of activities you want to use.

Both the Hubby and I brainstormed ideas in the categories of free dates, cheap dates, more expensive dates, and plan ahead dates.

Here is our example list:



Making the list was the hardest part. There are a lot of online links for date ideas. Just cater your list to your tastes and preferences!

This doesn't really requ…

Songs I am Obsessed With Right Now

Maybe I am the only person, but when I hear a song I like on the radio I kind of get obsessed with it. I just want it to come on all the time! Or I go home and YouTube it over and over!

Here are a few of the songs I love right now!

This song by the Chainsmokers is awesome. It has such a great beat and it's always on the radio right now!



Dan and Shay are a great country duo, but From the Ground Up is such a beautiful song. I absolutely love it.

Florida Georgia Line has never put out a bad song. It took me a few times for me to get into this one, but I really like the song. It's another I love to sing when it comes across the radio (which is quite a bit).

I hope you enjoy your day! 

Until next time,

Kara

Mixed Feelings for Sure...

I am not one to post much about politic things. I think it's best just to keep my mouth shut about how I feel about politics, because it just starts arguments between friends.

Well Donald Trump will be our 45th president. I have so many mixed emotions about this...

I am scared for the possibilities that he brings with no experience. I am scared that the people who got out and voted were fueled by hate, not change. That they were scared because they are getting left behind by technology, scared because people with education are bypassing them for more opportunities, that social norms are changing and it's not acceptable to them.

I am scared that people think it's okay for Donald to have mocked a disabled reporter, to have said demeaning things about women and it be okay, to be openly hateful to people of other cultures and that being considered American pride.

I want a world for my daughter to be kind, accepting, understanding. We are not all the same, we have different opportu…
