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
