The shower had three temperature settings: "911 what's your emergency?", scalding, and normal heat. But the trick was normal heat was where the cold water should have been, so when you turn on the shower you normally turn it towards heat because you don't want to take a cold shower. Standard behavior, right? Only at this hotel, turning the shower to what you think is going to be normal hot will actually melt your flesh off. Consider yourself warned. Oh, and the hair dryer is not fancy enough to be stored in the bathroom - it's hiding in the closet in a little black velvet bag. I nearly panicked when I couldn't find it.

Since we already had a babysitter for overnight after the Bon Jovi concert, a couple of weeks before the show I decided to look into getting a hotel room downtown Dallas for the night and we could have a little overnight getaway. Then we wouldn't have to drive all the way home so late, and we could stay somewhere fancy for the night. Everything in downtown Dallas is expensive, let me just start right there. I was looking at minimum $150 for somewhere not very exciting and over $200 for the fancier places. So for kicks, I went to Priceline.com because I've never used it before and was able to get a room at the Hotel Adolphus for $88. When I went to their website, the rooms started at $229. Heck yeah, Priceline.com! Definitely will be using that again.
So while definitely not our normal stomping grounds, it was fun to pretend we were posh and fancy for one night. I will say that our bed was super comfortable, and considering that I was getting over bronchitis and Nick was battling a sinus infection, we both laid down and conked out.
