Heyyy guys. I know it's been awhile and I insist on doing more than my weekend recap posts, but I just haven't been able to get myself together to do that. Ha. I swear I'm gonna do it this week though, I bought a ton of stuff shopping today (woops...) so I NEED to do a haul. Like, actually need to.

Anyway - let me get on with the weekend recap. Friday I headed down the shore again to hang with my friend. We actually planned on hitting the beach Saturday morning but while it was like 85 degrees inland, on the beach it was like 65 and windy as all, fail. ANWAY, Friday night we just headed out to downtown Asbury Park. Such a great place to chill and eat - the cutest places EVER. First we hit a Chinese-American bar/eatery called Happyness. We just nibbled on a couple snacks and had ourselves a nice little fish bowl. We got the Blue Hawaiian, which pretty much tasted like heaven. Or what I imagine Hawaii to taste like, I guess. Since Happyness didn't really have dinner-type food we headed two doors down to Talula's to grab a little pizza. It was SO delicious and they were also screening West Side Story on the wall - so wins all around really. By that time it was like 10:30 and us oldies were ready to get home and in bed, especially since the night got a little bit chilly.

MONday Funday - MDW Edition

Heyyy internet friends! Hope everyone has had a marvelous Memorial Day Weekend! Although it's lovely to have days off from work and hang out down the shore, try to keep in mind the real reason for Memorial Day and appreciate the people who dedicate their lives to the military and keeping this country safe.

Anyways, just going to do a quick weekend recap for you as I feel horrid today, sadly. :(

Friday evening I headed down the shore via a PACKED south bound train. All those bennys... (Although I am technically one, but I lived down by the beach for school for years so I'm no longer counting myself as one.) Misery. But I made it down to my friends new place in nearly no time and was ready to get the weekend started. So we walked down to Parker House in Sea Girt around 8, but there was already a cover (and we were going back the next day...), so we decided to just hang out and drink some cider at my friends. It was nice to just sit around and talk with friends. Here's a photo from the walk in Sea Girt. I thought I edited it pretty nicely.

Sunday Funday - OOTD Cas Fridays

Hey internet friends! I'm skipping the usual weekend recap post this weekend as I haven't documented or done much that would be of interest here. (I know, I know, I haven't been a good blogger these days!) Also, I figured I haven't written a fashion post in awhile and I was quite pleased with my outfit on Friday so I figured I'd throw it up here for you lovely people.

I'm calling this one my Cas Friday look. My office is quite lenient about their business casual dress code, so I'm not sure this would work for everyone that works in an office - but if you wanted you could certainly swap the jeans with white linen pants and the flip flops for flats and get more or less the same effect. :)

Sunday Funday - Outside Activities and Mother's Day

Hey guys! I know it's been awhile, but the weather has just been so nice and it's caused me to lose my mind and try to be outside as much as possible (since I'm stuck inside working most of the day.) But anyway, I'm here to recap my weekend for you. I didn't do anything too, too thrilling.

Friday I actually took off of work to take my first driving lesson! It's a little known fact about me that I cannot drive/do not have a license. But I'm finally working on it because you just cannot live in New Jersey and not's a disaster. So I am now on the roads people! It's definitely a very nerve-wracking thing for me, but now that I've actually driven a little I realize it isn't nearly as bad as I was making it out to be and I'm ready to get some practice in! So I guess that's pretty exciting. 

Since it was such a beautiful day, later on I went to Stagehouse with my friends and we actually sat in their little outside area! It was so nice to be out in the bright warm sun. They had quite an interesting folk band playing...but it was a great time nonetheless.

Sunday Funday - AC & Literally Nothing Else Because I Have No Life

GUYS! I know, it's been too long since I've been up in blogland. The weather has just been so nice and I think I might lose the whole rigid schedule thing and just produce quality blog posts when I have the inspiration and time to. Especially with summer coming up - I like to get outside as much as I can. Also, I just ordered a new bike this morning so I plan on being out on it as much as possible. Getting to take in the great outdoors whilst exercising, that's a two for one! Anyway, onto my weekend recap. 
Friday evening I headed down to Atlantic City with my friend Nicole to celebrate a friend's 21st birthday. We stayed at the Borgata and pre-gamed with tequila and orange juice and Ruffles, of course. Ruffles are a staple when drinking alcohol with my group of friends. Then we headed out to mur.mur pretty late for some more drinks and dancing. They played a ton of rap which was slightly disappointing at first, but as the night wore on they started playing more club and dance music. Unfortunately the only people we attracted all night were actual trolls that couldn't take no for an answer if their life depended on it. It concerns me that men think they can just touch any person they want to, like just because a woman is in the club it doesn't mean she wants her personal space to be invaded by you, uninvited. (I am JUST sayin!) Aside from a few creepers - it was a great night! I'm not a huge partier and I don't go out and super late too often, but I like to make the most of it when I do.
