I Slept in a Bathtub, Covered in Money

The very first time N and I hung out outside of work, 
I wound up sleeping in a bath tub and he threw money at me. 
I’ll explain.
My two guy friends from work were going to Philly for another friends birthday party. I didn’t know them that well but our girl friend assured me they wouldn’t murder me. So we agreed to split a hotel room.

Note: If you aren’t super cheap and don’t split 2 person hotel rooms between like 8 people, I don’t know what you’re doing with your life. College move. Still doing it.
So me and these two guy friends head out to the bar.
Dancing and Drinks. Singing along. Drinks. Drinks. Drinks. More dancing. More drinks. And who was buying my drinks? One of said guy friends: Naveed. 
Mostly I just remember his head bopping around as we laughed our asses off and danced to every song. This is the only picture from that night. Quite possibly our first kiss.

So eventually the bar is booting our butts out and we head back to the hotel to sleep. We’re friends at this time. I wouldn’t tell that kind of story on these here interwebz. 
When we get back to our hotel room we find that it is quite definitely occupado. By our other guy friend and some girl I have never seen before. You get my drift. 

Since I couldn’t sleep in the hallway of our hotel, I bolt to the bathroom and Naveed follows. Now I’m locked in the bathroom with a guy I barely know and the awkwardness if we leave will be too horrible to endure.
That’s why I take it upon myself to accept my fate for the evening and lay down in the bathtub. The whole time I’m bitching at Naveed about wanting my portion of the money back for our room. Poor guy did nothing wrong and couldn’t do anything in the situation. Naturally, I keep bitching. 
Finally, in a last ditch effort to shut me up, he pulls out his wallet and throws all the money in it at me as I’m laying in the bathtub. All $16 of it. Take your money back then! He said.

I’m so offended that I leave it wherever it landed and drift off to sleep. Fully clothed, shoes on, dollar bills all over me.
I woke up about 20 minutes later and Nav had left the room, gotten extra pillows, and made me stand up so he could line the bathtub with them so I could have a proper bed. Then he fell asleep face down on the tile.
And that’s the story. It’s actually how we spent our first night together. It took about 3 more months, but eventually we wound up dating. But I’ll always know that we started off on that extra classy note. 


And with that, it’s time to introduce you to one of my favorite ladies, Bri from Back to Bliss. I basically consider her my personal running coach after she guest posted here and shared with us How to Get into Running if You Hate Running
She’s a girl after my own heart who loves colored pants and wedges. She even shared how she was betrayed by her own daughter! Miss Ella happens to be one of the only babies I’ll ooooh and ahhhh over on a regular basis. Plus, let’s face it, Ella’s outfits are consistantly cuter than mine. 
So go check Bri out. Or, do as I do and tweet at her every time you successfully run a mile. Thanks for putting up with me, Bri!

  • Dear Lord. This is why you are awesome. Sidenote: is that a little rascals GIF? Because you win blogland today if so.

  • Ok, maybe it’s just me, but that’s like the sweetest thing I’ve ever heard. And for my birthday one year, me and 6 (YES, SIXXXX) of my friends split ONE hotel room for 3 nights in New Orleans. It was the best and craziest weekend ever. And Ben has credit card rewards for staying in hotels so much, so we NEVER pay full price for a hotel. I wouldn’t even know what to do with myself! Thank you for linking up with me sweet boo bear!

  • This is perfection! I know my story about moving in with my boyfriend the first day we met is interesting but this is fucking interesting! lol

  • hahaha now that is an awesome story that you can tell your grand kids one day. i thought maybe for a second when we got married we’d have to stop splitting hotel rooms and be grown up, but we still sometimes do it at weddings if the hotel is pricy! no judgements here 🙂

  • bahahhaa! What a great story! I need to do one of those for next week!

  • That may be the best “first date/night/kiss” story I’ve ever read. And I totally still do the splitting the hotel room between way too many people thing. Its the financially responsible thing to do.

  • This is one of THE BEST first night stories ever! And me and my friends totally split hotel rooms a million which ways when we go back to our college town for football games. Sleeping on the floor/pull out/bathroom floor is the only way to do it.

  • This story is priceless! 🙂 the first time I hung out with my now husband I was a little under the influence as well and I took off on a bike in the middle of the night so he chased after me… And I climbed a tree. Not my proudest moment, but it’s a good story now. 🙂
