Lost but Not Found

So, at the start of September I went with my husband to a photography thing in St. George. It was great fun! I took a personal day, and spent the weekend sleeping in, lounging by the pool, and composing lesson ideas. Sadly, the trip ended on a less positive note.

I left my swimsuit behind.

I just found it this summer. It was brand new. I loved it. It was perfect. It looked like this:

Isn't it adorable? I think so too! In addition, I also left behind my handy-dandy-matches-the-suit-perfectly beach cover-up. I left them hanging on a hook in the bathroom after returning from a visit to the pool.

I am not usually so careless, and the loss of the new swimsuit has been driving me insane!

I know what you're thinking, "Why didn't you call the hotel?" Don't worry folks, I did. In fact, I have called them repeatedly. Until today, the lady named Jen, who is in charge of the lost and found, was never actually THERE! I left her two messages, and my husband even tried to call once or twice while I was at work. Today, Jen finally returned my phone call. Apparently, there is no such swimsuit to be found.

Now, I ask you, who would steal a used swimsuit?!?! I mean, I know it's a fabulous one, but REALLY! I don't care how cute it is, you wouldn't want to adopt the swimwear of a complete stranger! (And this is coming from me...the thrift store queen...some things are just off limits.)

Anyway, I am majorly depressed about it. Jen promises me that she has my phone number, and will call me if my bathing suit shows up in the laundry or something. Right. I'm really counting on that happening.


  1. That is tragic! Such an adorable swimsuit. I guess you could try to console yourself with the whole "It's better to have loved and lost...." but if I were in your place I don't think that would work very well. (Just out of curiosity, where is the suit from?)

  2. Thanks for the support, Noelle. I bought it in North Carolina at a store called Goody's. I am trying to tell myself that at least I enjoyed it for the summer we were close to the ocean, but still,it's depressing.

  3. Seriously depressing! It's adorable! I would cry... daily.

  4. I am so sorry. That really is a cute suit.

    I hate to share this with you but...about 7 years ago the same thing happened to me. I left my fav suit in a hotel room and I still think about it every time I go swimsuit shopping. The pain never goes away. I am so sorry. I share your pain.
