I Ain't Afraid of No Ghost

So much had been going on lately and I am so excited to finally be able to blog about it! Last weekend started off promising but ended with our only car breaking down. In two hours we had to make the decision to buy a new car. After a long week of processing everything, Ruby officially became ours on Wednesday.

After all this, The Husband and I decided we were going to explore Colorado a bit and head up to The Stanley Hotel. For those who don't know,  The Stanley was the inspiration for Stephen King's book The Shining. Our original plan was for it to be a day trip but we ended up staying the night. We signed up for ghost story time and found out the room we were staying in was one of the haunted ones!

When we first checked in, The Husband and I decided to take a nap. When we woke up he complained that the pillow was uncomfortable and he wanted a different one. We turned on the TV but it turned off by itself twice so we gave up. We went on with our day and showed up for story time. The woman running the show was named Scary Mary and would go floor by floor telling us about the hauntings that happen there. 

The people in the room next to us asked if their room was haunted but Scary Mary said, "no, but a room close to you is. Is anyone in room 311?" The Husband and I looked at each other and raised our hands. I guess what happens is the guests in this room complain about the uncomfortable pillows and then hear a knock in the middle of the night and someone announces themselves as a bellman. The guests get angry and see a bellman through the peephole holding pillows, but once they open there is nothing there.

Any Friends fan will appreciate this!

Notice the orb in the top left
We had a couple weird things happen in there but I don't know if it's ghosts or just coincidences. Do you believe in ghosts? Have you ever had a paranormal experience?
