Wedding Week Recap Day 2 – This is Why I Can’t Have Nice Things

Hey Internet! We’re doing this! It’s time for Wedding Week Recap Day 2!  Are you excited? I hope so!

If you missed day one, it is here – along with a fun Christmas recap.

So wedding week day 2 was full of excitement… and a little bit of panic…

See what had happened was…

We went to see Saving Mr. Banks with the bestie’s family. It was so good. (Seriously. Go to see it. Right now. Stop reading this. Grab your keys. Go to see it.) I may be a tad bit biased because Mary Poppins and Peter Pan were my all-time favorites growing up, but I really don’t think I am exaggerating. It was wonderful.

Anyway, after the movie the maid of honor (hereby referred to as the MOH) and I walked around 10 minutes to the car and got set to go back to her place and get ready for the bachelorette party.

I needed to get a bottle of wine for part of my present so we stopped into a little wine store. That’s when I realized I didn’t have my wallet.

Now this was a problem because I had my wallet at the theater when I bought my ticket.

Also, my debit card info had gotten stolen (thanks Target. Why are you always out to get me?) So I was dealing in all cash that week and, of course, since my mom had warned me to be very careful carrying around a good deal of cash I PROMPTLY left ALL of my cash and my credit card in a movie theater.

Also, my driver’s license was in the wallet, so if I didn’t find that I was going to have quite a time trying to get home.

Basically, this was not a good situation.

Surprisingly, I – the girl who melts down in the freezer section – remained astoundingly calm. I may want to cry if the store is out of sweet potato fries, but if all my money and important documents are missing, I think. “It will be in the theater. It has to be. It’s ok.” This may be because this is not the first time this has happened. I left my ipod in a giant lecture class in college and then left my debit card at a BDubs in Orlando. Both times I completely freaked out and went back and found them. So this time, I figured I’d put the freak out off until I knew if it was really gone.( I also thought that MAYBE I should probably keep better track of my things.)

So we drove back to the theater and I ran up two flights of stairs (sidenote to all my asthmatics out there – It’s hard to breath in Denver. Bring an inhaler. Learn from my mistakes. I probably needed an inhaler before I ran up the stairs, so after I was struggling a bit.) And the very nice ticket guy let me go look for my wallet and I went to where I thought we had been sitting and I looked.

And I looked.

And I looked.

And I extended my search.

And then I started to panic.

I could NOT find my wallet you guys.

I was about to give up and go talk to the management to see if it had gotten turned in, when I turned on the flashlight on my phone and spotted a tiny bit of purple peeking out from under one of the sets a few rows down.

So I got my wallet back and we went to the bachelorette party and painted pottery and then made pizzas and drank wine and the bride opened presents and we watched Bridesmaids. There were no strippers. (And NO Dad. That does not mean we need to step up our bridesmaids game. It means that we are classy ladies.) And it was awesome.

So there you have it! Wedding Week Recap Day 2 is done!

I’ll talk to you tomorrow internet.
