Broken key…and Friday Favorites, 2013: Week 27

Friday, July 5, 2013

So our Fourth of July ended on QUITE the note.

As we were getting ready to leave, we had packed up the car, taken Izzy for a last walk to do her business, gotten her in the car and I was about to start the engine…however when I put the key in the ignition it just didn’t “feel right.”  I took the key out and only had HALF A KEY!!!


I thought half the key was stuck in the ignition, but thankfully it was in the car door…it had broken when I opened the car door and I hadn’t even realized it.  I had been having trouble with that lock on that door for a long time.

I’m just so grateful we were able to get home that night without calling Triple A as Kimm had her spare key along!!

So this morning was spent getting some new keys made.  Thankfully it was only $3 a key.  However, if we would have had a newer car with a microchip in the key we could have been looking at upwards of $75 to $100!!!! OMG.  Times have changed.  That would have been a definite UNWANTED and UNEXPECTED expense.

Anyways, it’s done now and I hope nothing happens with the new key 🙂

Enjoy my favorites from around the web this week…there’s a LOT of sweet treats…surprise, surprise.
