Love that blog candy

Today was a busy day. But before I get to that I will share with you some blog candy I won from Moriah's blog Thank you Moriah :)

I was up so late last night. Actually I was up until a little past 3:30am. I couldn't sleep (yes I nipped into the pop). So I caught up on my blogs I love to check out.
at a little before 3:30, I heard some kids outside. It was warm in the house (didn't want to turn on the air) so we had the windows open. After a bit I looked outside and saw 3 boys walking down the sidewalk by the neighbours house. At first I thought that the boy next door was coming home way to late. Thinking ohhh his parents are going to be p1ssed at him. Then thought No I don't think this boy would be out that late. My kitchen window faces his bedroom and he didn't put a light on. So I knew it wasn't him.
Then I got a bad feeling. Shut and locked the windows and went to bed.

Hubby calls me before he heads to work that our jeep was broken into.
I forgot to lock the jeep doors. So what the boys did was take my parking money (maybe at the most $5.00) and made a mess out of the jeep, just threw the contents of the glove compartment and the console around.
Thankfully they didn't take my (I mean Kristy's) case of Coke for the weekend.

I did phone the police and told them what had happened. He asked if I lived on a street a few blocks away. I guess these boys prowled a few blocks. The police told me if I see kids roaming the street at night to phone them as they take this seriously.

The rest of the day I spent with my SIL Sharon. We got camp food and went shopping for the day.
We are going to her camp for the weekend. We are leaving about noon tomorrow. I think I have most of my scrap booking stuff packed.
I am not worrying to much as Kristy is having a sleepover tomorrow and I am coming back into town to pick her up on Saturday, so I can get the things I forgot :). Sharon's camp is only a 40 min drive from town.

My vow for this blog was to write in it everyday. This is not going to happen this weekend as she doesn't have Internet or cell service out there. So I am tricky. I will write my day down and post it and change the date in the post options when I get back, Teehee.

Thankful Thursday

  1. Sucks about the jeep being broken into. :( Thieves are pricks! (And that's my nice word for them).

    As for the blog I said....HORSESHOES!!

  2. See, one thing about living in the country is, I don't have kids just walking around the neighborhood at 3 a.m. On the other hand, when I do hear something going on, I'm super paranoid and I actually take a *gun* if I go outside when I hear something at night. heh.

    yes I'm a redneck, why do you ask?

  3. I am loving this blog and the comments, all those words like pissed and prick have given me the biggest smile today, sorry about your jeep though! It's also so cool that you can actually have a gun! mine is just a air rifle for shooting at the crows and magpies and if I am quick the pesky wabbits that eat our flowers and veg!!!

  4. How creepy that you saw the kid! And every day?! I think you can give yourself a little slack, after all I'm slipping up on my once a week goal!!! Hope you have fun on your trip!

  5. Wow! That is a great box of goodies! I love the Tim Holtz stuff!!!! Have fun playing!!! And enjoy your weekend!

  6. I am so sorry that happened to you. I had the same type of thing happen to me and my jeep. They took the most stupid things, including cd's of random music that I'd put together. They also took all my papers, like proof of insurance, and scattered them all over the parking lot. Ugh...

    Have a great weekend playing with all your new stuff! Color me green with envy!!

  7. Hi Tracy,
    Your blog candy you won is really fab, I adore your little christmas boy stamp, it's so adorable.
    Hope you have a wonderful crafty weekend with your SIL.
    Happy crafting
    Tracy x

  8. The blog candy is so pretty, you are very lucky. I loved your comment about fitting your scrap room into your jeep, very funny :) So sorry to hear you only have Michael's nearby. I don't know what I would do without my LSS.

  9. Thanks for all the kind words Tracy! I'm so glad you liked everything! I totally think you should make something for blog candy. I LOVE your creations and would totally enter to try to win something you have made. :) Sorry about the Jeep. Hope you have an awesome weekend to make up for it. Moriah

  10. wow Great blog candy! Also, pop by my blog, I have something for you!
    Hope your weekend is Great!! Tab

  11. Sorry your jeep was broken into that. That is frustrating.

  12. I am sorry to hear about your Jeep. My car was broken into several years ago and I just remember feeling so violated and disgusted! Hope the weekend is wonderful!

  13. Congratulations on your "blog candy" win. WooHoo! But, sorry to hear about your Jeep getting broken into. Ugh!

    One of these days, I'll get more disciplined and can get more time to devote to my blog. I still feel like I have so much more to learn. Yours is great! Love it!

    Have a great weekend at camp!:-)

  14. You have got to be the biggest blog candy winner I have ever seen! Pass that shamrock juice will ya. LOL
    Where do you find them all?
    You could always give away a lovely mini book. You do such pretty work I am sure anyway would be thrilled to win one.
    I have most of my goodies ready for mine. Just need to finish up my studio so I can get it finished.
    Have a great weekend.

  15. Awesome blog candy! Sorry about your jeep--we had the same thing going on in our neighborhood 3 weekends in a row only they were also ripping trees down and keying cars. They finally caught them last weekend and it was 4 teenage boys from the next neighborhood over.ugh.


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
