Soo....as you see in the title...this post has been a long time coming. I was waiting for one of these pics that I felt was the key to completing this post...so here you are...
It all started December 29th...it was a rainy day but it was sunny for me! I was signing papers on my new house! We drove out to Washington Square area to meet with the Title Company. The Boy was sitting next to me cheering me on as I was signing my life away...literally. All the sudden he looks up and goes, "There's the snow!" I had no idea it was even in the forecast let alone supposed to be dumping white stuff out the window! I signed and signed and signed and then I was done. We came out and saw the streets were fine! So dumb and dumber headed to the mall across the street to pick up some shoes we had our eyes on. As we came out the mall the white stuff was dumping harder...still the roads were good. Please understand at this point we head home and there are many routes we can take. Oh yes and don't forget we are in The Boys' truck that is HUGE and has NO, I repeat NO four wheel drive (who makes a truck with no 4 wheel drive?) And if you aren't aware, driving a huge truck with no 4 wheel drive is like getting on an ice skating rink...it's bad...very bad. Instead of getting on the freeway we decide to take a "short cut" (read: 1 hour later we were back where we started) As we arrived on the short cut road...the roads were NO LONGER good. We needed to get back to the freeway. It took us 1 more hour to do that...approximately 3 miles?!?!? I can see the panic is The Boys' eyes and I knew if he was panicked I should be triple panicked...that's when my super duper idea came to me!!! STAY IN A HOTEL AND CALL IT A NIGHT! One would think a hotel .2 miles away would be easy to get to...SORRY! 45 minutes later and a lot of DUMB people we make it to The Grand Hotel! In only the clothes we were wearing BUT thank god we had new shoes! Crocs to be exact...you know really good snow shoes! Oh yes and in honor or signing my papers I decided to go with fashion instead of warmth...so I had on a long sleeve t-shirt with only a vest over the top. Lovely!
Lucky for us The Grand Hotel was having a special...something about dumbasses who couldn't get home...and apparently Ron Jon at the front desk knew it was our 1 year anniversary so he kindly upgraded us for free!
We arrived in our room of luxury shortly after 5 pm. Immediately I jumped in the tub!This was the nicest place we ever stayed so we took full advantage! A jacuzzi in the living room with robes to go with it!
We headed across to the mall to eat at PF Changs and then to Whole Food to pick up cheap wine and "natural" oreos!
Oh yeah...who cares we didn't have wine glasses!
It was a fun night to remember...when we arrived back at the hotel we walked right in on a wedding reception...who gets married on a Tuesday????? Poor things! Bless their hearts!The Boy with his robe and "new shoes" on!!!
