Birthdays, Blackjack, and a Celeb.

I cannot believe that it is Tuesday already!  Jason and I had a long weekend, celebrating a few 60th birthdays!

Saturday night, we attended a surprise 60th birthday party and Sunday into Monday we went to Atlantic City to celebrate his Step-Mom's 60th!  SUCH a fun weekend!

It has been almost 3 years since either of us have been to AC, so it was pretty exciting for us!  We stayed at Harrah's, ate at Carmine's {omg, that place is so delish!}, drank like fish, lol, and gambled with a celeb!!  Yup, we were on our 2nd or 3rd blackjack table {he plays, I collect :)} and as we walked up I noticed a familiar face.  Now, mind you, I was a few Captain and Diet's in, so I was trying hard to figure out who this was, when it hit me... and I said, sort of under my breath, "oh, sh*t, you're famous."  She smiled and nodded.

It was Kelly Cutrone.

Now, I guarantee that some of you have no clue who is she, but that's ok.  I'll share.

Kelly Cutrone runs People's Revolution, a PR, marketing and branding firm and a NY Times Best-Selling Author.  Sadly, I know this because of my major addiction to reality TV, lol.  She has been seen on The Hills, The City, and her own show Kell on Earth.  She also will be on the upcoming season of America's Next Top Model as a new judge.  Soooo, you can imagine my excitement!  

She was completely humble, super nice, and we gambled with her for a decent amount of time.  When she was leaving she came over, gave me a hug, and talked to me for a few minutes.  It was really nice to meet her.

We spent the rest of the night playing some more blackjack, then Jason and I headed to watch a band play and dance a bit before calling it a night.  

Sadly, I didn't take many, actually any pics of our travels in AC, because you can't take pics on the casino floor.  :(  We came home late yesterday and have spent the past day and a half trying to get back to normal.  

It was a wonderful weekend, but I couldn't get back to my baby fast enough.  I swear, NOTHING compares to being with her.  And I looooooove that smile she gets on her face when she sees me walk in the door, as she runs with her arms wide open and collapses right into me.  Yup, that's the best.  BEST.THING.EVER.

Tomorrow is the birthday girl's ACTUAL b-day, so I want to give a proper bloggy shout out...

Happy 60th Birthday to Gwen's Grandma!
We hope you are having a great day!
