I'm back again to start a TGIF series. I've been in a relationship for over a year and a half and my boyfriend, Haris, works the grave yard shift at a hospital.. (Wait! That sounded really morbid) lets just say he works the 7pm to 7am shift. So the weekends are really the only time we have to spend together.  Every Friday the same question comes along "what do you want to do this weekend?" And my repeat response is always "I don't know, what do you want to do?"  Well, Dear Readers, there are only so many restaurants you can eat at, and not many bars that won't burn a hole in your pocket, and lets just face it if you have kids, you will have to take out a line of credit to go see a movie.

Since I live in New Jersey, I am going to post about things going on in the next week around NJ. If you are reading from another state please leave a comment at the bottom, and next week I will include your home state.
