3. Von Zipper Women's Debutante Sunnies
I purchased these sunglasses as a replacement pair for the ones lost in item number two. They were purchased in a tiny, overpriced surf shop on the island of Kauai. I loved these sunnies. Great fit, face-flattering. A little sentimental since they were purchased on our honeymoon, yadda yadda. Needless to say, I wore them everywhere. These sunnies were stolen two years later at a house party in Virginia.
And I don't even like house parties.
4. 8mm Akoya Cultured Pearl Earrings
A Christmas gift from The Husband in December 2007. These earrings were given to me as a replacement pair for the Tiffany pair that were stolen out of my dorm room in college. Do you sense a theme here? I left these pearl earrings on the nightstand of the hotel we stayed at in Turks and Caicos in July of 2009. I was an ugly-crying fool when I realized I had left them behind, the minute we arrived at the airport. Thankfully, The Husband replaced this pair of earrings four months later, the day we found out I was pregnant with C. If you knew me at all, you would know I can't be without my pearl earrings. Let's just say these earrings are practically crazy glued to my ears.
5. Rainbow Sandals
These sandals are actually the reason behind this post. I was casually explaining to The Husband earlier this week how I'm in desperate need of new flip-flops for the Spring/Summer season. I was saying how torn I was about how I should spend my "Spring/Summer SAHM Wardrobe Budget." As in, "Do I spend fifty dollars on 2 new pairs of Havianas? Or do I spend it on one replacement pair of Rainbows?" Why might I need to replace my Rainbows? Funny you should ask. I left this exact pair behind, beneath the bed, actually, of our hotel room in Oahu. I blame the fact that we decided to stay on TWO islands for our honeymoon which involved extra packing and unpacking and therefore, the loss of my beloved flip-flops.
I won't even mention the time I lost one of my mother's diamond stud earrings after borrowing them to wear to prom. I shouldn't be allowed to leave the house some days, let alone borrow things. So, please tell me I'm not alone?
