Don't mess with our crazy neighborhood...

For the last three or so months the cars in our neighborhood have been getting broken into.
The robber’s only mess with the unlocked cars but when they are robbing cars once a week you’re bound to make the mistake of accidently leaving your car unlocked.
 Those bastards stole my GPS, car registration, car manual and insurance card. (This happened about two months back).
I felt ill. It’s a weird feeling when a stranger has touched all your personal stuff.  
But then when I actually witnessed these scum breaking into cars I felt like I wanted to punch someone in their drug addicted face.
Clearly, these boys are looking for money or looking to sell our stuff. They need their drugs, man.  
And these boys, or boy in Sunday night’s case, aren’t very bright because they kept coming back, and coming back.
I kinda understand why, easy escape through the woods that surround our homes.
But what this little bastard Sunday didn’t realize was that he had a handful of 20-something “Essex*” men waiting for his arrival.
Oh man when Matty’s mad ya’ll, you better watch yourselves. There ain’t no stopping this man.
Let me just give you a play-by-play of my phone conversation with the dispatcher when I called 911 Sunday night.
Me, “Yes I’m watching this creepy little bastard right now get into our neighbor Casey’s car. Okay, now he’s in Mrs. Diane car. What a sketchy ass mother f-er. Eww. Okay, now he’s about to hit up my car. Oh man, I hope I locked it.”
Dispatcher, “Girl, me too.”
Me, “Okay, thank god. It’s locked. Okay now he’s going to my husband’s car. And OH SHIT! NO!! F!!  My husband’s outside, with a baseball bat. Oh shit. Now my husband and the dog are chasing this kid down the street. Oh crap. Here’s another guy in the neighborhood with a baseball bat. Okay, their gonna kick this motha f-ers ass. You better get the cops out here fast.”

(If you don’t know already, I curse a lot. When I’m pissed, it’s lethal. I don’t know when I thought it was appropriate to talk to the poor dispatcher with this kind of language. Dang.)
Matt and my brother in-law chased this kid into the woods with, our dog, Chase. I guess Chase felt Matt’s energy and wanted to protect Matt. My brother in-law said that the woods were pitch black and the only reason he was able to jump on top and tackle this guy was because of Chase’s white fur.
Modern day Lassie right here.
This kid had to be scared. My brother-in-law is about 6’5. And he had three grown men chasing him with bats.
I would have pooed.
My brother-in-law said the kid goes, “You all are crazy. You smell like you’ve been drinking”
My brother-in-law responded with, “Were all crazy mother f-ers around here.”
I think they are.
Don’t mess with Essex, we turn a little gangster when need be.
I also think we totally lived up to our white trash reputation that night. It was priceless. I wonder what the cops were thinking. They did send out six cop cars. Guess my baseball bat comment didn’t help.
I mean this dog is serious about his love for his papa. No wonder he helped out with catching the bad guy!
(And this is an old pic, I do not have my Christmas tree up yet. I promise. lol)

Emily's Bridal Shower

Saturday I hosted Emily’s bridal shower at my house.
I felt lucky because all the girls offered to bring a snack (and I totally took them up on their offers.) We had so much food and it was all so tasty. Thank you pinterest for making things interesting.
The shower was very sweet and relaxed. We didn’t play any games; instead I had created a “date night” box where each guest wrote an idea for a date. It was really cute and I had fun listening to Emily read the “date night” ideas after everyone had left.
For favors I went to Bath and Body Works and got each guest a travel size lotion and hand sanitizer.  The lotions were the “new” scent for the season, and the sanitizers were the scent “love.” With my coupons I only spent $30 on the favors for 20 guests. I thought that was a steal! And to add some cuteness to them I just tied them together with a purple ribbon. Seriously, all the girls went bananas over these. Guess you can never have too many lotions for your purse.
The weather Saturday was perfect so some guest even sat outside to eat. It really ended up being a beautiful shower.
Okay, don't you die over this "Bride-to-Be" Banner. Thank you Mama Claire for helping me!
Pat on my back for an awesome job! ;-)

A little Relazation..

Us Bogdan's have been enjoying some nice relaxation time. 

I feel like my mom would say it's "totally zen" here. 

Not that we went anywhere special. I don't know if I'd considered Ocean City, Maryland "special" but it's definitely nice and a total tradition for any Baltimore folk. 

I mean, let's be honest, anything is nicer than sitting at a desk all day.

Even today when it rained all day and Matt and I got all slap-happy-goofy-bored.  You know how when that happens you laugh so hard you cry?

Maybe not as hard as when Matt and I saw the biggest hairiest butt crack known to man. Seriously, hairy butt cracks less than a foot from Matt's face make me laugh so hard my nostrils shake and flare. I had to walk away or I would have really peed my pants. 

Anyway, life has been good this week. 

(Assateague Island) 
Tomorrow is our last day on vaca. Hopefully, the sun will come back out and we can be lazy and lay on the beach all day reading.
