Welcome to the start of a new week…minus a day.. you know, Sunday.
The weekend came and went and wouldn’t you know I was a social butterfly a lot of it. Ok, sort of, ok not really. If you call having 2 girls come over to my apartment to get pictures and chit chat with me then yes I was quite the social butterfly.
Although, now that I recall, I did go to a friend’s house to give her her family pictures I did back in May, which coincidentally she was pregnant and didn’t know it then. Kinda fun.
She’s now 19 weeks and as cute as can be. Sadly, the day before her baby shower, she got home with her 2 kids and while unloading the kids, noticed her dog barking at their front door. Normally, he greets her but he wouldn’t stop barking. Instantly she knew something was wrong. She looked up at a second story window and saw a curtain was pulled back that she knew she closed before leaving that morning.
She immediately loaded the kids back in the car and called the police. Her house was getting robbed at that very moment. By the time the cops arrived, the guys were long gone, but not before trashing her whole (freshly cleaned for the shower) house. They took some very precious things of hers and her husband’s and even after it being over a week since it happened, I know it still affects them.
I’m thankful they’re alright and didn’t walk in on them. I don’t even want to think of that scenario. They’re a little more paranoid right now, which is understandable and hopefully over time will be able to go back to a normal state.
Speaking of ‘things’ being taken, I came across this website called TinEye reverse image search. It allows you to put in your picture URL or your website and see if your pictures are being used anywhere else other than your blogs. I thought it was pretty great considering a lot of us have been concerned with our images and even lives being taken and recreated.
On top of spending time with friends this weekend, I scored some awesome new FALL candles. 2 for $20, anyone?! Thank you awesome deals! I’ve burned the Marshmallow Fireside and it is divine! Subtle yet delicious!
Also, since its my house and I’ll do whatever I want, I listened to Christmas music as well. Michael can sing in my house anytime.
