A Sour Ending

May 7, 2012 · 90 comments

I don’t think I can put into words how much I enjoyed the Blend Retreat this weekend. Honestly, it was one of the most fun weekends I’ve had in a very long time.

A ton of it thanks to these girls

…and a whole lot of it thanks to these girls:

It was pretty predictable I’d have a lot in common with my roomie, but I think we surpassed expectations.

I know. You love my Colorado hiking hair, don’t you? Tina did.

I can’t wait to catch you all up on all the sleepless activities we indulged in all weekend. You guys are going to be so sick of Blend recaps at the end of this week.

Yesterday’s breakfast with Court, Heather, Katie, Laura, Ashley, and Jillian

Speaking of sleepless, I’m currently a bit of a complete space cadet. My mind and my bod don’t do so well with less than 7- 8 hours sleep every night, and I’m running on about 5 hours sleep from each of the past four nights. I think I went through my 12 hours of traveling yesterday/last night in a bit of a hazy fog. Sorry if I said anything weird to those of you who saw me at the tail end of Blend… I can’t be held responsible* for anything that comes out of my mouth right now.

You want to hear just how big of a space cadet I really am? The wonderful Colleen and her husband Corey picked me up from the airport a little before midnight (I know what you’re thinking, and yes, they are sent from heaven above). When they dropped me off at my car on the street outside their apartment in downtown Richmond, I hurriedly (and sleepily) tried to load all my bags into my car and say goodbye to Colleen as traffic built up behind Corey’s car.

After I said goodbye to the angel that is Colleen, I felt like I was forgetting something.

**LESSON LEARNED: If you feel like you’re forgetting something, check the goshdarn car and make sure all your belongings are present.

My mom talked on the phone with me for the majority of my drive home so I didn’t end up with my forehead on the steering wheel. Just before 2:00 a.m., I finally pulled into my driveway.

This is the really, really crappy part.

My checked bag was nowhere to be found.

I didn’t check a bag on the way there, but since we got so many fantastic liquid food items from our sponsors and from the wonderful people at Love Grown Foods, I had to check my Vera Bradley duffel on the way back. I was so excited to try the White Girl Salsa from my friends at Love Grown Foods, to dump Xagave in my coffee every morning, and to put some jalapeno blueberry preserves (also from LGF) on my english muffins every morning.

I was so angry with myself. I assumed in my frazzled and sleepy state, I left the bag in Corey’s car, so told Colleen I would drive back tonight to grab my bag. Dumb, dumb, dumb, Alyssa.

Colleen then called me this morning on my way to work to tell me my bag isn’t in Corey’s car. The only thing that makes sense is that I put my bag down on the sidewalk and literally drove away.

My checked bag had all my clothes from the weekend. All my shoes. My new straightener. All my makeup and makeup brushes, my contacts, my moisturizers, my allergy medicine, every Lululemon article I own (which is only about 5 articles or so…BUT STILL!)… and a whole lot of my favorite clothes basics like my flats, skinny jeans, delicates, nude heels, and tank tops.

I know I should consider myself very, very lucky I had my wallet, phone, DSLR camera, running shoes, and work iPad with me… but still. All that crap is going to be a big pain and a whole lot of money to replace. The materialistic part of me is so distraught, and the overtired part of me just wants to curl up into a ball.

Did I mention I also get a little melodramatic when I’m overtired?

I really had a great weekend I can’t wait to tell you all about.  I just need to get over the hump of this sour ending, take a nap, and regroup before I recount it all. :)

Now please, go embrace your moisturizers, hair straighteners, clothes, and contacts for me. Mine most likely has a new home with someone who hit the jackpot on the streets of Richmond.

Enjoy that White Girl Salsa, Xagave, and -4.00 contacts, dude. Grrr.

*I will also not be held responsible for anything in here that doesn’t make any sense. My forehead is about to hit my desk.

NOOO! That’s so crappy. You are lucky to have your camera/iPad/etc with you … but that is SO SUCKY! I turn into a complete crazy person when I’m lacking sleep, too. I feel for ya.

I hope you catch up on some sleep soon!

So sorry you lost your stuff! Perhaps there is some sort of identifying item in there.. and some kind soul picked it up and will get in touch with you?!!

Sounds like you had a fun weekend. Wish I could have gone and met all of you wonderful ladies! Maybe next year!

That really, really sucks. Such a damper on what was probably an amazing weekend. I am so sorry to hear about that. I would be devastated! Of course things can always be worse…but still. Craptastic.

I am glad you had such a great time otherwise though, and I’m pumped for your recaps! You go and get over your hump, regroup it up, and have a spectacular napular!

Oh my gosh. Someone is going to be very excited to when the left-behind bag giveaway, but that totally sucksssss. I’d be in tears, especially since I don’t own too many nice clothing items and such, so I’d probably have packed them all. Any chance someone can find your name somewhere on the bag and return it to you?
So jealous of your weekend at BLEND, but totally bummed for you and the bag fiasco :/

I’m not sure I have any identifying stuff in there… but it’s downtown Richmond, so it’s unlikely it was a kind soul who found it at 3 a.m. waaaah.

AH NO! That is absolutely terrible. I would be in the same distraught form as you. I am so forgetful when I’m tired too and am notorious for losing things. It’s a total bummer. I will keep my fingers crossed for you that someone returns it! You never know!

If not, you could always go stalking the streets of Richmond and tackle the person that’s wearing your clothes :)

Oh no – I can’t believe you lost your bag! I was a bit of a space cadet myself, I’m relieved I made it home with all my stuff. It was a close one. Your post is a little more coherent than the one I wrote last night, if that makes you feel any better. :( Maybe someone will have turned your bag into security?

Girl, I want to cry for you. Seriously. What a bummer. :( :( I’m crossing my fingers that there is SOME small possibility that there is a way that someone found it & is hoping to get back in touch with you…if there is some identification on your bag. UGH. What a terrible way to end the fun weekend.
At first I was hoping you were going to say you left it at the airport, which would of been ideal, that way you could just call the airline & pick it up. :(
I’m so sorry!!!!

Did you just call the airport and see if anyone turned it in? I’ll think positively that some dude picked it up and realized none of that stuff interested him so he gave it to them!!

That is always terrible when you have a great weekend and a sour ending! I am so sorry you lost your bag. But slowly but surely you are going to replace everything and it will be better than before! I know it stinks and it is hard to see the positive.. but who doesn’t love a reason to shop?

Oh my heart sank for you when I read this! So shitty!! I had an airline lose my main checked bag once over Christmas. Unfortunately, it was when I was flying home so I lost all my xmas presents, all my main – everyday clothes, pretty much my life! So I totally know how you feel. And yes, it SUCKED having to replace things – like bras which suck to shop for in the first place lol. Luckily, they did locate my luggage 6 WEEKS later! But by that point, I had replaced most things.

Was the airline luggage tag still on it? Maybe the person that picked it up will be kind enough to take it back to the airport….*fingers crossed*

That is so terrible about your bag. :( But I can totally see how that happened because the weekend was EXhausting!

I’m so glad you say that, because my friends all think I’m nuts. I think it’ll be a good week before my brain starts functioning at full capacity. ;)

UGH. SUCK. That is exactly why I didn’t want to fly. Obviously you didn’t have much of a choice, but other than the fact that it was a huge time-suck, driving and flying (cost-wise) were a wash. I didn’t have to think about what to pack or leaving my bag somewhere or losing anything. I’m going to try to fit all my stuff for 4 days in Boston next month in my carry-on. This could be interesting.

Have fun shopping to replace stuff. It is going to suck money-wise, but at least you’ll get to pick out some new stuff.

And 5 items from lulu? I spent almost $300 on 4. Five is an investment. SUCK!

Oh my gosh! That sucks! I am so sorry this happened to you. Good thing your electronics weren’t in the bag, but I would be just as dramatic about it! Hopefully you find some good deals when you replace everything.

O you poor dear! I have had my luggage disappear before and from reading between the lines, you behaved much more like an adult than I did! Best of luck with the replacements!

Oh no!!! I’ve done something of the sort before, too…only it was a diaper bag. lol All my kids’ supplies: diapers, wipes, jackets, everything…and it was at the beginning of the trip! We left the damn bag at a rest area somewhere in WV!

But the best part about losing some clothes?
