My Credit Card Was Compromised…TGIF!

I am SO glad friday is here (even if it’s Friday the 13th!). You have no idea, it has been a crazy week and I feel like I’ve been running around like a chicken with my head cut off. I got a phone call  from my credit card provider this week to confirm some recent transactions on my credit card. I didn’t even need to hear what they were to know it wasn’t us since we don’t use the cards. No I didn’t buy anything from BestBuy and I certainly didn’t attempt to buy anything from an online jewelry store. I’ve never gone through the process of dealing with confirming/denying transactions, what a pain in the ass! Of course they called at 6:30pm when none of us had eaten yet and all kiddo wanted was Momma. Though I’m glad they caught it before me, still bad timing and a pain to deal with.

I needed to get as much done this week so I wasn’t bombarded Saturday afternoon. It’s always a fun time but a lot of prep. Hubby was supposed to have the day off today to help but something came up and he needs to work for a bit now…Boo. I’m so thankful for a helpful sister-in-law who will  be coming over for help in the child rearing/party prep!

My baby is officially no longer a baby :’( She turned 18 months this week officially entering ”toddlerhood” (insert sobbing). It’s bittersweet, I love watching her grow and develop into this little functioning human, but I just want to hold onto everything as long as possible. I feel like I’m never going to get over this though and it’s just apart of parenting. I’ve accepted I’m going to be that mom crying at everything. She’s been amazing to watch. Her current thing (other than adding to her ever growing vocabulary) is to twirl around while dancing. She shakes her little bum, lifts her feet like she’s stomping then starts twirling like a ballerina. Her Godmother was an accomplished dancer, as was her aunt so they’ll be proud when they see :)

I got an award! Wendy from Girl Meets Debt decided to share a little blogging love and thought I was worthy enough for one of her blogging awards, I was touched :)

I hope everyone has a great weekend! Any plans?


  1. That was super scary! So someone tried to use your credit card? By the way send my regards to your little princess, I remembered when my daughter was as cute as your daughter before.

  2. I had my Debit card compromised just about a month ago. It’s kind of a pain waiting for a replacement, but not too bad besides that. It’s a great service to have, for sure!

    This weekend I’ll be taking my wife out on a date, since my 22-year-old sister called up and asked if she could babysit my kids and take them to a local Christmas lights display on Saturday night. Um. Yes! Whose sister does that kind of thing?…. she’s awesome.

  3. My credit card that I barely use got stolen and used at best buy a few weeks ago. Trend maybe?

    My son’s one year birthday is in two weeks and it has flown by. Too fast for my liking!

  4. She is just too cute! I love all of the pictures that you post of her.

    That stinks about your credit card, but that is great that they caught the transactions!

  5. I’ve had my credit compromised a couple (yes, a COUPLE) times before and it’s so frustrating and time-consuming to address. I hope things get resolved quickly and smoothly.

    Happy 18 month birthday to your little girl! My own 18 month is sick this week and I’ve had less sleep than when he was a newborn! But like you, I cry at every milestone and new phase; my husband has banned me from looking at the kid’s newborn pics because I start bawling every time.

  6. Wow, that’s awful that someone was using your credit card! What a pain!

    By the way, your daughter is beyond adorable. Seriously, every picture kills me with cuteness :)

  7. I’ve had people use my debit card and it is no fun! What a hassle. Your little girl looks so small next to the snowman. She looks like a doll though. Have a great date night, you deserve it! :)

  8. I’m sure that’s one of the hardest things about being a parent is watching your little ones grow up. And from every parent I hear that time goes fast, so it’s nice you’re treasuring those cute little moments!

  9. Good thing they caught it right away. Congratulations on your award!

  10. At least THEY caught it right away, and it didn’t wait until you got your statement in the mail – which you may not have looked at since you don’t use the card! My son is turning 15 next month….which means he’s eligible for his driving permit. WHAT!?!?

  11. I’m glad that your credit card company was savvy enough to spot those fraudulent charges =/

  12. I hear rumours that kiddos grow up super-quickly.
    Having your card compromised is super annoying! My housemate once had that happen on a Friday afternoon and they cut off her credit card and her debit card and wouldn’t replace them until Monday morning! I think I ended up lending her some money so she could get through the weekend.

  13. Ugh, I’m sorry that happened to you. Having to deal with all of that can be really stressful, especially this time of year. But yes, thankfully the company did catch it. This happened to my debit card a few months back, and I had to go without one for something like two weeks. I never use cash (because I always forget where I spent it and end up with like $6 in dimes, nickels and pennies), so this was a pain in the rear. But I’m glad to see you’re dealing with it like a baller! And super cute pic, btw :)
