Anyway, Jim and I headed to the airport Thursday evening. Not to get on the plane, but to be near the airport Friday morning, since we had a morning flight (and it is cheaper to leave a vehicle at a hotel near the airport than actually at the airport). The flight was uneventful, what I remember of it (I MAY have drank a little too much...oops!).

Honestly, I'm not necessarily a non-believer in ghosts but I don't WANT them to be real and I feel like if they really, truly are real, why isn't there more evidence and proof? Right? Well, I can't say I don't believe any more. Elizabeth (Jim did some research and the ghost in our room is named Elizabeth) made her presence known, especially to me. The first night I woke to the sound of high heels walking on the floor, but thought it was somebody outside on the balcony (which we shared with another room). Jim later confirmed there was nobody outside all night with him. Later I woke up to what felt like a kick ball hitting my face (like a game of dodge ball...seriously!). I couldn't get rid of the feeling that it would happen again until I rolled over to Jim's side of the bed (please note, every one of my experiences happened when Jim was gone or sleeping!). The next night I woke up to loud noises at the door. I assumed that Jim, who'd gone out to walk on Bourbon St earlier, drank too much and lost his key. When I got to the door, there was nobody there or in the hallway. The third night, I woke up to noises that I thought were voices. I woke Jim up but they'd gone away by then. CREEPY to say the least. Then on our last day when we were getting ready to leave, I was in the bathroom and Jim had the EXACT same experience with the door that I did but he was awake and SAW IT MOVING and nobody was there when he opened it (he thought it was house keeping). Seriously. So crazy.

Our next (as of yet unplanned) weekend destination? New York!!! You better be ready, Sasha!!! Nashville is also on the list. Any other fun cities you recommend visiting for a long weekend? Now that we know how much fun long weekend vacations are, we plan on doing them more often, if/when we can!
