The Bee Bee Bandit

I never imagined myself saying this, but have officially fallen victim to a drive-by shooting...the mildest form of one of course!

Let me quickly brief you on what was going on at the scene of the crime before the crime occurred around 2300 hours {I think that is 11pm, ha!} last night. I sat comfortably in the living room in a chair {by the window} catching up on some blog reading while my hubby sat five feet away from me catching up on some Call of Duty {don't even get me started on this game} on the Playstation.

Out of nowhere we were alarmed at what sounded like pea gravel hitting the windows in the living room...

Hubby says: "What was that Nat?"
I said: "I don't know, I'm scared" {shocker, huh?!}

Something inside of me thought that it was I proceed to head outside to see nothing. No one fleeing the scene on foot, or driving off in a car. The streets were quiet and I was confused, there was literally no one in sight! I returned inside the house to get the flashlight so that we could investigate the window.

With flashlight in hand, I begin my window investigation to find not one, not two, but three bullet {bee bee} holes. Here are some pictures of the evidence that we uncovered...

I was immediately irate and wondered why someone would do this??? Hubby got in his truck to drive around the neighborhood to see if he could find someone trying to flee the luck. I pulled my phone out of my pocket and proceeded to call the Police, who I might add were here in no time at all.

The officers looked at all the windows and discovered that there was actually another hole in another window on the other side of the front of the house, ugh! Just in case you have lost count now with all these bullets flying around, grand total we have 4 bullet holes in 3 windows-not awesome!

I made a special request that the officers do a search of the neighborhood to see if they could catch these bee bee bandits! Can you believe that happened?? Who would have thought that a relaxing evening at home with my favorite pizza and my hubby would turn into an evening of drive-by shootings! Just one of those things I guess, probably some crazy kids out to terrorize!

Hope that your weekend has been super fun and relaxing so far...oh, and free from drive-by shootings especially, ha!


  1. Oh my goodness Natalie. How scary! I hope they figure out who did it. I'm glad you and the hubby are okay. I think I would find it hard to sit by the window for awhile.

  2. Girl. Nothing like a BB gun to spice up your weekend! :-( SOOOO glad it wasn't a "real" gun. I don't think some kids realize the idiocracy of their dumb decisions. Hopefully they get caught!!!

  3. Oh my goodness! I'm glad y'all are alright! That is craziness. I hope the rest of your weekend is quiet! xo, KA

  4. Umm, that is for real scary, girl! I am happy that you guys are okay and that it was nothing more than bee bees, but seriously? Who does that?! Probably just some bored kids or something, but I really hate that for you guys! And of course I totally hope that they get caught! If nothing else, it is reckless and rude!

    Boo! I hope this doesn't ruin your week, girlie!

  5. That is horrible!! I would have been scared too! :) I hope they catch them!

  6. Oh my gosh that sucks! I would be so mad. Why do people have to do stupid things? I am glad it was only a BB( not sure how to spell that one) gun and not a bigger one. I hope they find whoever did that and make them pay for it!

  7. That is so crazy! Sorry you have to get new windows too! Not Fun!
