Wednesday was a big day, well maybe not big, but long. I was joining a bunch of my coworkers for dinner and a show in Atlantic City after work so I made sure to wear a fun yet work appropriate outfit so I wouldn't need to worrying about changing clothes (I still haven't mastered that whole change your bag, shoes and jewelry to make an outfit do double duty thing). I had an asiago bagel with reduced fat cream cheese (so much better then fat free) for breakfast and packed a mango greek yogurt, a banana, an apple and some mini pretzels for lunch. I've been loving dipping my pretzels into my yogurt...it's the little things.
As soon as the clock struck five the bunch of us still left in the office packed up and headed out to the city. The hospital shares a parking garage with one of the casinos so we employees get free parking if we remember to bring our badges. There's a great little mexican restaurant called Los Amigos right outside of the parking garage and hospital by the outlets so we met there by 5:30. There were chips and salsa waiting for us at the table which we dug into immediately and then ordered drinks, I split a pitcher of margaritas with two other ladies.For my entree I order the crab and shrimp enchilada (lump crab, shrimp, mushrooms, garlic, chiles and green onions wrapped in a flour tortilla, served with mornay sauce, sour cream and pico de gallo). It was extremely tasty and I ate it all!
It wasn't just any show we were going to see, it was The Price Is Right Live! They come to town a couple of times each year at one casino or another and it's always a good time. We rushed in at the last minute and almost missed registration because we'd been having too much fun at dinner. Luckily they pushed us through the line and soon we were all name tagged up and ready to go.
The show operates just like regular tv show. They call audience members down and they guess the price of the item to win a chance to play games and win bigger prizes. The only difference is that they call new people down for each game so if you don't win the first one you're out of luck.
Punch Board and Cliff Hanger
Hole in One (or Two) and the big wheel
Shell Game and Plinko
We thought it would have been so great if any of us were called because we're all purchasing agents, so we spend our days pricing out and buying different items. Unfortunately none of our names were called so we just yelled our guesses from the audience. The show ended around 8:30 and we were all home by 9. I hung on the couch with Joe for a little while but it was a really exhausting day and soon I couldn't keep my eyes open so I headed up to bed.1. 1000 fitness minutes - nope = 0 minutes; 528 minutes total
