Again I woke up and took a trip to the Dunk for some coffee but this time I got some gross bagels too.  I came back and we had coffee, bagels and mimosas.  We headed to the beach and lounged on hotel provided chairs and towels.  Word!  We brought to-go mimosas- not the best beach drink in retrospect.  Oh well.  We both read our faces off again and enjoyed the sun.  

Around 4 we headed back to the hotel and went to the pool.  We scored awesome lounge chairs and read more and enjoyed drinks.  Michael had a beer and I had a frozen wild berry margarita.  We endured a group of annoying young professional douchebags and swam a bit.  More reading ensued and we were loving life.   After a few more hours of lounging we headed back to our room for showers and primping for dinner.  I am sort of in love with this dress.  I love the orange and the pocket factor.  It's super comfortable too.  I paired it with my not-yet-broken-in Payless wedges that cause a bit of blistering still.  I'll break those fuckers yet.  I went a little overboard on the makeup.  I think it's just natural to that in when in Jersey.   We went to P.F. Changs for dinner and had drinks at the bar while we waited, me a Malbec and he a beer.  Dinner was wicked yummy.  We had the tofu lettuce wraps for and appetizer and split Ma Po tofu and Curried Tofu and Vegetables for our entrees.  Divine.  I don't usually love chain restaurants but man alive I love me some P.F. Changs.  Nom, nom, nom. 

After dinner we walked as much as my stupid shoes would let us, not far, and I scored a cat head/rose Atlantic City t-shirt nightshirt.  I intend to resew the sides to make it a fitted dress.  It was between the cat/rose or two kittens in a tea cup that said "Wake up and smell the coffee." I liked the coffee quote but when I asked Michael which cat he'd more like to punch in the face he opted for the cat/rose cat.  I agreed and plunked down my $7.99.  

We returned to our hotel, sad that it was our last night.  We drank the rest of our wine and watched Funny People.  What a great movie!  We missed the very beginning but I got it.  It definitely stuck with me.  I love Adam Sandler in roles like that.  I love vacations more though.

Yeah after I watched Funny People in the theater I knew it would be one of those movies that followed me around a bit. It really grew on me afterwards too.
