A Prom Story We'll Never Forget.

Monday, April 23, 2012

So, this weeked was quite eventful! Friday night we started the weeked by celebrating that Joel was done with his exam, by going to the Med School Prom! We had a blast, but there definitely is a kicker to the story that we weren't expecting. Read below to read about our Friday night adventure!


Funny Story alert

After a long night of dancing on the rooftop and hanging out with friends, we left the ball and headed home. We took a taxi ride home since we knew we'd both be having a few drinks each. When we got home we checked our pockets for the keys and could not find them anywhere. We re-traced our steps and began to panic. After 30 minutes, we called pop a lock, and they told us that it would be a minimum of $85 to open the door. That was not possible in our books. 

I knew there was only one option.. to sleep in the car for the night until we figured things out in the morning. All of our friends left before we did, so we didn't want to wake them. Would be nice to have family here, but we don't... you can always wake them up :) 

 So we called Onstar, and had them unlock the doors so we could get in. About 30 minutes later we realized that we really needed to go to the bathroom. As soon as we opened the doors, the alarm began to sound and we could not figure out how to turn it off. We were so nervous and scared that our neighbors would be so mad since it was 1am. Probably 5 minutes later, we figured out how to make it stop, but our neighbor had already come out and given us an earful.

In the process, we jumped back in the car and locked ourselves back in. But, we still had to go the bathroom after the alarm had stopped. So we tried again, and we unlocked the door first. That didn't work, so here there we were again mortified waiting for the alarm to stop. It finally did, and so we both ran and found bushes to go in. Luckily I had napkins in the car so I was good to go. The alarm didn't go off again so we were relieved. We then, slept in the car for the next 5 hours until we woke at 6am starving and thirsty. 

Joel walked to the McDonalds (in his tuxedo, may I add) and got us food while I waited to hopefully catch our landlord. He proceeded to tell me that a homeless woman asked him if he would buy her breakfast, so he did, and he told me, "I did, because I knew how terrible it felt to be homeless for 7 hours." 

So, by 7:30 we began calling him in hopes he'd answer. 8:30am rolls around, and still no answer. We then decide to bang on his door until he answered because we were so exhausted from the whole experience. He finally opened the door at around 9, and we got in. Needless to say, we slept the whole next day. 

What a story, huh? 

Lesson learned: We will put a spare key somewhere so that next time this won't happen!


We snuggled with Rayne all day on Saturday since we were exhausted. After waking up at 2pm, we walked Rayne, and tried to enjoy some part of the day. We at at Panera, and I had a yummy Thai salad. After, we decided to see The Lucky One, which was so good! I loved it, so much ! Cool fact: The Lucky One was filmed in my hometown!! You can imagine the Zefron fever everyone had. The opening scene with the views of the swampy waters, that was less than a mile away from the canal that my parents live on. Pretty cool ! I looked for my house, but they didn't zoom out enough. Oh well, still pretty cool. 
Also, I took a picture of our bed, because we made the bed Friday night before we went to prom, and Saturday when we  came in we looked at the bed and just said, "I hate you bed!" So ironic that we rarely make our bed, and the night we do, we couldn't sleep in it. 
UGH. 

Sunday we relaxed some more and enjoyed the sunny but chilly weather! 

So, how was your weekend?

  22. Craziness! The first weekend the hubs and I moved into our new house we locked ourselves out. We had to climb on top of a trash can and through the kitchen window to get in! Im sure our neighborhoods thought we were nuts!
