Day 26!

Admitting you have a problem is the first step to recovery...

Hi, my name is Kira and I am addicted to buying weird shoes.

Okay, I'm sure people own stranger shoes than these, but still some of mine are kinda interesting.

Day 25!

AC day 3!
The saddest day : (

All in all AC was awesome. We didn't do too much, but it was just good to be away from home, socializing with random people and playing slots. AC even in the winter is still jumping. We watched people get escorted out, we watched the sweat drip down the guys at the poker tables, we watched the drunk girls try to walk in stilettos, we were put on the guest list at the Casbah, we had several drinks offered to be bought for us, though we didn't take any, we tripled our money at one point! Seriously started at $1 and ended with $3.08, but then we gambled it, and lost it again. Anddd what happens in AC doesn't always stay in AC, we may or may not have stole a small bottle or two of jelly off a room service cart near our door. lol

Here are two photos of the lobby, you can't take pictures of the casino itself.

Day 24!

AC day 2!

Not sure why I did this, probably because I've been taking pictures of the sunrise since the days of watching it by the Verrazano in 20 degree weather, I decided to get up early to take photos on the beach. I wasn't the only crazy out there doing it, surprisingly.
The pictures were well worth it.

More corny the bathroom!
See, a bench in the shower.

This next photo is my favorite. The two of us are broke, and I mean really broke. Not from gambling or anything, though that did eat our money away, we just don't have much. So to save money, Heather and I decided that we would buy food from PathMark. We seriously ate pepperoni and cheese sandwiches, pistachios, tomato and mozzarella salads and seven layer cakes for two days. It was awesome.

Creepy, the mannequins in Bally's were soo creepy. I'm swearing they were once people, like House of Wax style! Btw I'm blowing a kiss to the donkey.

After this photo, we called it a night. We were spotted by two people at street level, two people we kinda were avoiding lol.

You put a mirror in the elevator, and you know this is going to happen...

Day 23!

AC day 1!

Kinda crazy, at random my mom decided to surprise my sister and I with an early Christmas gift. She sent us to Atlantic City for two nights. It was pretty awesome, I had never been there before. She booked us at Caesar's and oh my goodness was it the nicest hotel I had ever stayed at! It was soo pretty and it was sooo cool I couldn't believe it. When we check in we were told they upgraded our room free of charge and we were on the very top floor. The view was beautiful!

So Caesar's is ridiculously huge. It has a two floor casino, restaurants everywhere and these florida room tunnels that connected you to the pier shops and the parking garage. Being that the place was so huge and Heather and I are so oblivious (though I seriously thought I was being observant) we lost the car in the immense parking lot. I swear we were on floor two, but the elevator buttons started on 4? Being so confused, and after the valet guys saw us clueless and circling again and again, we were eventually escorted around until we got to the car. After finally getting our stuff to bring to the room, the first order of business was to hook up my iPod to the stereo and have a dance party!
Normally I wouldn't dance in the window, but being we were on the 44th floor, I didn't really care lol.
Next order of business was to take corny pictures in the bathroom! The bathroom was so nuts. It was two rooms, there was a tv in the mirror, the shower was huge, stone and had a bench and there was a phone next to the toilet. Though to be completely honest I find that weird, and a bit gross lol.

The beds might have been one of the best parts of the hotel. I have never slept on a fluffier bed. It made me just want to sleep the entire time there. There was also an over abudence of pillows, in which Heather and I decided to make forts out of. This photo clearly shows my fort building skills are beyond superior to most.

Day 22!

Ah how do I let this happen? Well over a month has gone passed! So terrible...
Anyways I thought today was a very important day and deserved recognition. Okay it's really not that important but I'd like to think so. Today I (willingly) had a bowl of cereal in an actual bowl. Like I said, not that important lol. For some reason whenever I eat cereal (for breakfast/lunch/dinner/3 am munchies) I eat it out of a cup. I'm convinced it just tastes better this way, though I know it can't be true but I'd like to think so. Well at home today we just switched our dishes to our holiday dishes! I looove seasonal dishes and that is why I decided I would eat out of a bowl like a normal person.

Not really sure where my seasonal dish obsession came from but isn't it cooler to eat your Kix out of a snowman bowl than your regular china? Again, I'd like to think so. The whole eating cereal out of a cup thing...I think I might have to blame my grandmother for that one. When I was little she used to make me scrambled eggs but only gave them to me in a bowl as opposed to a normal plate. Kinda backwards here aren't I? So cereal in cups and eggs in bowls. For the record though, I don't drink out of a plate, 'cause you know it's impossible and all lol.
