On Friday we leave for atlantic city!!!

DH and I both love poker and not to toot my own horn but I am pretty good at it. We both play in 2 poker leagues which once a week a whole bunch of people meet up and play poker for free. Every 3 months if you beat everyone you get a $100 voucher to play in an AC tournament.

Well, guess who won that? Me! Yep :) So DH and I will both play in a $50 tournament. 1st place is around $400 :)

We are also staying over night. Now I know you are saying ASHLEY!!! :smack!: What is wrong with you? You can't afford that!!! But yes, yes I can. I get comped rooms :)

Now I am sure you are saying uhm, HELLO!! What about food!! Its AC, its expensive. Well, in the south jersey entertainment book, there are coupons for b1g1 free dinner. Hello $17.99 dinner. AND DH gets %20 off that for being an employee.

Hello comfy bed, cable TV, and poker tournament!!!

Can't wait to spend time with DH!

Hopefully this 'mini-vacation' will allow you some quality time to get your marriage back on track. (You are the same poster with the 'Ugh, Marriage' post, right?) Enjoy.

Yes! Which is also why I am happy to take this because DH and I can really talk without any dad, or at home/work stress. Just us :)

Thanks very much :) If only it was nice out we could go to the beach, or I was skinnier we could go to the pool, LOL.

Thanks all, and no I dont believe so, but he does own the Trump Casinos. We normally stay at the Trump Marina which we love (and I get comped rooms at!!). I like it better than Harrahs anyway...but this time we are staying at Harrahs.

Have fun in AC when you go. If you're up late and want good drinks, Bally's has the only 24 hour bar and the drinks are reasonable and not watered down. I believe Trump doesn't own all the "Trump" casinos anymore. He's sold out and gone bankrupt so many times it would make your head spin. If you're able to get "out of the city", there are plenty of restaurants within a 10 mile radius of AC that are not expensive. Denny's, LOTS of diners, TGIFridays etc. I'm originally from Somers Point which is like 10 miles south of AC so I know the area like the back of my hand.

Awesome!! I get free drinks on the casino floor at any time. All casinos do that now, which is pretty awesome :)

As far as food goes, Trump marina has a good buffet, and its 17.99 per person, but we get b1g1 free coupons. So 17$ for the both of us to eat is pretty good!!!

Dennys all closed down in nj :( They went bankrupt!!! Soooooo sad!!
