We're 1/2 way...

to Little Pit being 1 years old! She turned 6 months old this morning, and if she was allowed to eat a cupcake or something I would have totally given her half of one!

So far though, her diet is formula, green beans, acorn squash, banana and rice cereal, pretty good for 6 months eh? She is a good eater while she is interested, only that doesn't last long so I have to make sure we both stay focused and when she's done I have to just give up. If I try to make her eat any extra there are tears and she starts sucking her thumb in protest. It is the cutest thing ever, and while frustrating, I have to remember that she's little and eating off a spoon is something new and TOTALLY different from nursing.

Other than that though, she is absolutely delightful. She laughs and smiles the entire time she is awake, and she is a great sleeper and has been getting better and better at taking naps.

Here are some pictures of the big girl :)

We have some fun plans this weekend including a lot of golf for Mr. Pit and a fun dinner with a big group of friends AND a Halloween party!

Hope everyone has a great week!

Guess who's coming to town?

That's right! They are opening a new location about a mile from our house and you'd think it was the first food in MILES the way Mr. Pit and I are so excited. They officially open on November 3rd and I am counting down the days. I love their chicken soft tacos SO much, I am hungry just thinking about it!

Plus, they use all naturally raised meats, and all of their veggies are organic that they buy locally, so not only is their food delicious, they are good people too :)

If you live on the Main Line, this is just the best thing ever right? (And don't tell me that there is already one in Ardmore, I know there is, but that is 100% less convenient and always SO crowded) Not like this one won't be crowded, but it's closer so therefore it wins.

It really stinks that the Phillies lost, I was really looking forward to a 3rd World Series in 3 years, oh well, it was not to be. We played golf yesterday afternoon and the weather was gorgeous so that helped. Little Pit has not been a good napper the past few days, so today I am trying to make sure she gets two good ones in so that she is a happy girl when her Dad gets home. Believe me, NO ONE wants a cranky Little Pit at 6pm!

Hope everyone had great weekends!

Tomorrow is a holiday, did you know?

Tomorrow is National Pit Bull Awareness Day!!

This is the 4th annual Pit Bull Awareness Day, and I for one, think that it is a great tradition!

Here is why it's important:
As breed advocates, we have an obligation to show the public what the media will not -- the truth. As responsible pit bull owners, we can no longer be willing to be judged, discriminated against, and criminalized by the image set by the visible minority of irresponsible, negligent, and careless owners. The media berates our dogs daily. Legislators have labeled pit bull owners as the "criminal element" who only own pit bulls to enhance their macho image. The time has come to set the record straight, and the National Pit Bull Awareness Day campaign is just the place to start.
In order to change the negative stereotypes that surround the American Pit Bull Terrier, we must take the initiative to educate people in our communities on the real pit bull. The search and rescue pit bull...the therapy dog pit bull...the K9 police pit bull...and, of course, the family companion pit bull. Its an opportunity to open dialogue and to show people first hand that there is no such thing as a "dangerous breed" of dog but, rather, that problem dogs are the result of problem dog owners.
In addition, participating in National Pit Bull Awareness Day gives you the opportunity to network with other responsible dog owners in your community. You can discuss issues of importance where you live, and work together to make changes to create a better environment for citizens and animals living there.

This is SO important to bring breed awareness to the masses! Too many people just assume that all Pits are evil and will eat their children. This couldn't be farther from the truth. As I've said 100 times, there are NO bad dogs, ONLY bad owners.

Take the weekend to hug your pet no matter WHAT breed they are, and hug a Pitty if you see one!
Me hugging my very own Pitty, Lil' Pup :)

Mr. Pit and I are trying to get tickets to the Phillies game on Saturday but otherwise it's a pretty quiet weekend around the Pit house. Hope you have a great one!

So many dresses...

SO little time!

Mr. Pit and I get pretty social this time of year with all sorts of holiday parties and charity soiree's...and what do I need for all these events....dresses of course!

Lilly has really been hitting it out of the ballpark lately with their fall collection (I also just went into Anthro this afternoon and holy heck if I didn't want to spend my entire bank account in there!)

So, without further ado, these 3 are on my list. Not holding my breath that they will be on sale at the warehouse sale this year, but we can always hope, right??!

This is the Wayles. I love it. It even comes with that cute belt...paired with brown boots, so cute!!

This is the Mae. I am not one for strapless dresses at this point in my life, but this one may be too cute to pass up. I love it.

And this is the Kaya. I love a dress where I don't have to wear jewelry. AMAZING.

So, that my friends, is my Wednesday Wish List. (of course as I sit here while Little Pit naps, I am wearing jeans, uggs and a long sleeve tshirt. oh well)

Hope everyone has a great day!

We're off to the Shipley Shops preview party tonight, can't wait!

A little about...


Thought I would do a little 'who I am' for those of you who don't know me very well. I will try to keep it short, witty and stylish, just like me :)

1. My blog name came from a very natural place. I grew up on the Main Line, which is known for it's preppiness, so I was really born into it more than anything else. Our dog, Lil' Pup as he's known around these parts, is a Pitbull mix, and the cutest dog I know. Hence, the Preppy Pitbull was born.

2. I turned 30 in September and my best friend turns 30 today. I have known her since the day she was born. She is getting married in December and I feel like my own sister is getting married. It's pretty awesome to have a friend like that.

3. I am a planner to the nth degree. We just got back from the Outer Banks and I am already planning a vacation there for next October. That's right, 350ish days away and I'm already on it.

4. I love bananas but hate banana flavored things. The only thing I want tasting like bananas IS a banana. I also love raisins but not in anything, I just want them plain, out of the box with the girl sitting in the vineyard on it. Don't mess up my cookie by throwing them in there, yuck.

5. I am obsessed with shoes, bags, dresses, jackets, polo shirts and cable knit sweaters. I have many styles in many colors. This does not please Mr. Pit. Yesterday I actually bought a cable knit dress. 2 for 1 obsession piece :)

6. I am a Virgo, which makes my planning look like childs play when it comes to my obsession with numbers. I really really REALLY like it when numbers line up, add up, and otherwise make sense. I like even numbers. Mr. Pit and I were married on 06-24-06. I like how it looks, and I like that all the numbers are even. I also like that 2 and 4 add up to 6. I am also born on the 6th, and Mr. Pit on the 2nd. Little Pit broke the trend and was born on the 27th, but 27 was my jersey number in college, so again, it makes sense. 27 is also the perfect number, as it's the 'trinity' cubed (3 x 3 x 3=27). 3 to the 3rd power. See, I told you I was obsessive.

7. I didn't know if I would like being a Mom. I thought it would be hard and I would never sleep and I wouldn't know how to make Little Pit happy. Not only do I like being a Mom, I LOVE being a Mom. Little Pit is the best thing to happen to me since Mr. Pit. Making her smile makes my WHOLE day. Watching her learn and hearing her laugh are just amazing. While I kind of miss getting to go out at the drop of a hat, and sleeping in, it is so worth it when I see her smile at me.

8. Last one I promise. I LOVE fast food. I know it's terrible for me, so I hardly ever eat it, but I LOVE IT. Wendy's single with cheese, yes please. 5 Guys fries, YUM. And fountain coke, don't even get me started, it's SO GOOD. I can literally TASTE the sugar and can feel myself gaining weight in all the wrong places when I eat it, but when the situation calls for it (a roadtrip most likely), it's absolutely delicious. And yes, I also love that McDonald's Monopoly promotion. If it weren't so bad for you I'd eat and then play every day.

Anyways, that's enough about me and my weird quirks. (A quick #9, I ALWAYS spell the word weird wrong the first time I type it). The Pit Family is off to a pumpkin patch this Sunday with friends, and Mr. Pit and I are going to the NLCS Game 1 on Saturday night, Go PHILLIES!!!

Hope you have a great week,
Mrs. Pit

Oh, and here's a new pic of Little Pit from the beach. She's not exactly sure what to do with her feet in the sand, but she didn't hate it!
