SHE'S HOME!

All is right with the world.
Here's the story... when I got home today, I noticed that one of my flyers was missing. I checked around to see if it fell off the wall, but then I figured that someone might have taken it and tried to call me. As I re-taped the other flyer, I saw that I had WRITTEN DOWN THE WRONG PHONE NUMBER!!! In my haste, I put one wrong digit. Seriously. I am dumb.
Since I thought that someone probably had it and was trying unsuccessfully to call me, I started canvassing the street. Last night, I rang my neighbor's doorbells at 8:45 (sidenote: everyone on my block has a yappy dog) and someone had the rest of my cards that were missing from my wallet. As I turned from the first house, I looked back at mine and saw the flyer stuck to my front door!
I called the guy and it turns out that he's a former police officer. He looked through my camera (yes - everything is still there) and recognized Kate. He said that next he was going to try and track me down through Coach. He also gave me some pointers on sending it back to Coach for a good cleaning.
I know it's just stuff, but Josh bought me the purse and I'm just soooo happy to have it back.
*Thanks, Lord

Awesome!!! Sidenote, since I am your mother: That guy probably doesn't want his number posted on the internet...I am happy to doctor the picture for you. :)

I went ahead and loaded the "doctored" pictures for you. Your kind neighbor thanks you. :)

It amuses me that the missing iPhone was a complete after thought on the flier. :p

Glad to see everything(More or less) worked out in the end.

So what ended up stolen - Josh's Iphone (RIP) and your library card? Stinks. I can't believe they took it right out of your car. That is brazen.
