Too Fancy For Me
I think I'm officially staying in the fanciest hotel I've ever stayed in. We came up to Cleveland tonight to see our friends Tom & Lauren (and their adorable boys Chase and Cole). Since we didn't want to have to drive all the way back to Akron tonight, we decided to stay in a hotel up here. For those of you who aren't familiar with Ohio, Cleveland is about 45 minutes from Akron. Anyway...Tom is the executive chef at the Marriott up here and he got us a room for the night. Not a big deal for him...but a big deal for me! Seriously. This room is so nice! It's got the most comfortable king size bed ever. Apparently their beds are so wonderful that you can now buy them. Yes. You can buy a hotel bed. It has sheets with more than a 150-thread count (in other words, they're super soft and not scratchy like normal hotel sheets)....an oversized down comforter....you get the picture. It's so fancy that there's even a real bath robe hanging in the closet. Oh yeah, and there's a coffee bar for my husband....and get this. They have stickers on the toilet paper. I thought that was hilarious. You know how they always fold the paper into a point? Well this place puts a fancy gold sticker with Marriott embossed on it. haha! Normally I probably wouldn't go into this much detail about a hotel room....but the one we stayed at for the last three nights doesn't even compare. And since my sweet exhausted baby boy is asleep in his pack 'n play, I just felt compelled to blog about it. Yup. I'm in my bath robe listening to K-love on my headphones, typing about our awesome room. Ooh, I almost forgot! Ed's friend Chris is the Sous Chef downstairs. He sent up a goodie basket for us....it's got all kinds of different drinks, trail mix, bananas, cereal for the morning, etc. I could get used to this! But alas. Our trip ends tomorrow. We're going back to Akron in the morning to hang out with his family some more. And tomorrow night around 7, we're taking off for North Carolina. Our goal is to have a repeat of our trip up here. You know, the trip when Edwin slept the whole way! I'll post lots of pictures once we get back home. I don't have to go back to work until Wednesday, so I'll have some time to recover. Have a great night!!
