Hi Pit Fans,
I am coming off of a pretty relaxing weekend and anxiously awaiting Mr. Pit's return from Las Vegas. We chatted lots over the weekend and I got lots of funny texts detailing various shenanigans with his best friends and I can't wait to get all the stories in person.

I know it sounds lame, and as independent of a person as I am, I still miss him when he leaves, even if it is just for 4 days. He is absolutely my very best friend, so when he's not around to talk to I feel a bit lost! Plus, with the 3 hour time difference it's not like I can call him all the time, nor do I want to be THAT wife. So it sounds like he had a great time even though he admitted yesterday to being exhausted (which ALWAYS happens when he goes out there) and again, I can't wait for tonight. He won't be home until about 1:30 am, but he promised he would get me up so we can at least chat for a few minutes.

On to my weekend recap...I ended up going out Friday night even though I had 1,000,000 things to do around the house and I am so glad I went. I met up with C (the super smarty who just got her PhD), her sister, and friends J and M and we had beers and appetizers at Theresa's Next Door and chatted for 3.5 hours! It was such a nice break and I did eventually get everything set up for the Scout Show so it was a win-win.

Saturday I got up early and went to Costco for food for the party (about 1/100th of what I bought was actually eaten) but it is all food I like so I didn't mind. The party was great, I had about 15 people come by and though not everyone ordered a lot I got some great feedback and some people ordered a ton! I still have more people coming by and ordering this week so it looks like Scout and I will do pretty well! Then my friend B and I went to a BBQ hosted by E and had a great time. We even got our hair styled by the cutest kids ever (I ended up with a side pony tail and B got a cool braid) and I am glad we made the trek down in the rain. Then of course, in true B and Mrs. Pit fashion, we stayed up until 2 am chatting and finally went to bed after we could barely form words.

Yesterday was pretty lazy, I did a lot of studying for LEED (15 days to go!) and sitting in the sun (when it wasn't behind a cloud!) and basically enjoying the outside with Lil' Pup.

Tonight I am headed to my parents house for dinner as my Grandfather is in town to play Pine Valley Golf Club tomorrow, so it will be nice to see him as I haven't seen him since I went down to Florida in January. Then I plan to get to bed early so I can awake to the front door opening around 1:30 :)

This week is quiet on the work front, but Mr. Pit and I head to Chicago this weekend for a joint wedding shower. Mr. Pit is at M's bachelor party this weekend and his fiance S invited us both out for their joint shower this coming weekend, so we're taking advantage of free tickets from Southwest (yahoo!) and heading to the windy city for a quick weekend jaunt.

Hope you all had great weekends!

xoxo Mrs. Pit

You know, we're the same way when TSU is away, after all these years! Congratulations on the success with Scout Miss Pit, you know we love them, and hopefully it is just the beginning of something fun and fab for you!

Have a stellar rest of the week!
