last week jeremy was in orange county all week for a business trip. he was supposed to come home friday night and right about the time he should've started boarding the plane, he calls me and says there's a mechanical issue and it's delayed a few hours. then a couple hours later, he calls me again and says the flight got canceled altogether.
as he's waiting in line at the airport to figure out how they're going to get him home the next day, i suggested that i just drive to him and we could stay the weekend [because we have a bad track record with mechanical issues on planes]. after a little back and forth trying to figure out if we could actually do it, we decided, why not? the only thing was it was already 7pm and he didn't really want me to drive there by myself at night in the storm.
my sister had come to my house to take me to get my car, and i was like hey, how do you feel about driving with me and you can fly home in the morning?! and she said sure because she's the best! [and she flys free, so that kind of helped].
so off we went! i was so glad she came with me because i got tired pretty quick so i was thankful for the company. we had a lot of laughs and as i was telling jeremy the stories later, i realized that everything we laughed at is not funny to anyone else. but those kind of make for the best times, don't they?
saturday was nice because since we hadn't planned on being there, we didn't really have anything to do. as we were discussing what our options were, this conversation happened:
that man and his sports, i swear. we decided to make the plan as we went and ended up doing a little shopping, saw a movie [non-stop, which was eh], went to the beach for a minute [it was cold and rainy], and then yes, we went and ate at espn zone that was in downtown disney. i had begged him in the morning to just go to disneyland all day and he wasn't feeling it, so after we ate i made him walk around downtown disney for a bit.
after that we went back to the hotel and watched some tv and just hung out.
since we have completely opposite schedules right now and don't see a whole lot of each other, it was so wonderful to have some time together where nothing could come up because we were out of town. we drove home sunday and had fun talking about the most random things. it was a lot of driving to be there for a day but it was totally worth it!
^^espn zone. halfway through our meal we got a nice little surprise with the ASU game on the big screen!
^^i waited a long time but rachel bilson never showed.
here's to being more spontaneous and a lot more california trips!
