michigan, part three3:27:00 PM
When we last left off, Conrad and I had decided to stay in Grand Rapids that evening. With only the clothes on me, I awoke with an absolutely horrendous sunburn - we're talking bright red, uneven splotches all over my chest and torso, with one especially awkward patch under my armpit (HOW, I ask???). Of course, of the two dresses I'd brought to decide between, one was strappy, and one strapless. Needless to say, they weren't going to work.
Oh, and did I mention that they were back in Muskegon, along with my shoes, makeup, jewelry, bag, hair stuff, and everything else I'd brought for the wedding...where I didn't know how to drive back to....with both mine and Conrad's phones dead....?
But never fear! Apparently when thrust into chaos, I am one to rely on! Just kidding, it really wasn't that big a deal, but you know my flair for the dramatic ☺ Also, there was an H&M nearby!
By 5 pm that afternoon, I'd bought a new outfit, squeezed into last night's shoes (new ones, so they hurt), scoured the car floor for random make-up that had fallen under the seats, pulled my hair into an acceptable up-do, brushed my teeth with my finger, chugged a beer, and was ready to party!
Of course, as soon as the wedding started, I completely forgot about how I looked, and just enjoyed the ceremony.
By the time we sat down for the reception, we were more than ready to party.
With all of this 'outfit drama', you're probably wondering what I ended up wearing!
An absolutely awesome night, if I do say so myself.
Coming tomorrow: our last day in Michigan ☹
