Spontaneity

Looking for a little explanation to this post? You've come to the right place!

Wednesday night, after girls night got postponed, I grabbed Cracker Barrel with my parents and settled into bed around 10 that night.

Not even 2 hours later I was awoken from my biscuit&gravy induced coma to my phone vibrating. Confused and out of it, I assumed it was my 6:24am alarm, and tried to "Snooze" it. And then it started vibrating again, and I again hit "snooze".

In reality I was hanging up on my best friend, Jenn of JaggedLittleLife, who was calling me from Vegas. Then I roll over to a see the following text message:


"Cody says he will fly you to Vegas this weekend"

Uhhhhhsaywhat?!

Cody is Jenn's husband's best friend. It just so happens that everytime I was out in Salt Lake City (when Jenn & Rob lived there), Cody was also there visiting Rob (he is a Seattle-ite).
Cody & Rob picking us up from the airport in SLC (They even took our bags, what gentlemen)

He felt it wouldn't be a proper Visit-Jenn-&-Rob vacation without my presence, and graciously volunteered to foot the bill for my flight out there (of course I've promised to pay him back with any winnings!)

After about 3 hours of "are you serious?" "I can't accept that!" texts back and forth (on my end) and a lot of "come! it will be fun!" and "ok not this weekend, how about next" on Jenn and Cody's end I told them that it was 2am and I was going to sleep on it, and would give them an answer in the morning.


So yesterday morning, I decided what the heck?! I didn't have any big plans for that weekend and I really miss Jenn, and could really use a getaway... and so I woke Cody up at 5:45am Seattle time (whoops) and told him I was game!

After my 23rd THANK YOU!!! Cody played it off, referring to it as just a "random act of kindness", to which I assured him his karma just got bumped up by 32 points.
Bright and early next Friday I'll be ploppin my butt on a (fingers crossed) window seat of a redbelly and jetting out west for 4 days of 85degree weather and good times!

Here's to hoping I win big so after repaying the kindness I can bring a little chunk of dough home too! haha

You can check out my first trip to Vegas here!

(Of course, being the awesome friend I am... we decided we should come up with a sob story and convince Jenn I wasn't coming first, hence why I couldn't blog about this yesterday! hehe She now knows the whole truth and is equally as excited. I think we've swapped 300 "I CANT WAITTTT!"s in the past 24 hours!)
