In Honor of Cyber Monday

You guys use EBATES right?

No? You don't?


I just signed up a month ago and I already have $15 coming my way. Not a whole lot, but as my Dad says, better than a sharp stick in the eye.

No joke, he says that, a lot.

Click HERE to sign up.

I love this site.

Seriously, it only adds like 10 seconds to every purchase, and you get coupon codes too that you might not have seen before.

Sign up now before Cyber Monday!!

DO IT!!!

And in other news, we had a great Thanksgiving, and Little Pit got her first tooth and turned 7 months old, yahoo!!

Hope you had a great weekend,

xoxo Mrs. Pit

All I want for Christmas...

are these boots from Target...
They are the Merona Kamischel Suede boot in Brown. In 9 1/2. Except I can't find them ANYWHERE.

We have 3 local Targets, NONE have my size. Online they only have 5.5 and 11.

If someone can find me these boots I will pay for them, obviously, plus shipping, PLUS I'll send you a little something something from Scout...sound fair?

Let me know if you can find them, they are SO cute!

I am thankful for SO many reasons this year.

2010 was a banner year for the Pits, and I am so lucky to have been surrounded by so many amazing friends and family.

To recap what made and makes this year awesome:

I had a great 2nd half of my pregnancy, an amazingly short labor and of course, we were blessed with a healthy happy Little Pit.

Soon after Little Pit was born, Mr. Pit graduated from Villanova with his MBA and not long after started his new job, which is subsequently LOVES.

I became a full time Mom and I couldn't be happier. I love being home with Little Pit and seeing her grow and learn everyday.

Before I had Little Pit I worked on a construction site and nearly completed an amazing project down at CHoP, one of the best Children's hospitals in the world. I liked working on a project that would house some of the best and brightest minds in the country, and I am convinced someone in that building will cure cancer one day.

We took two great trips this summer to New Hampshire and the Outer Banks and I can't wait to go back next summer! I fell in love with the 4x4 beaches at Carova. We were so lucky to get there for a week this year.

Little Pits Grandparents LOVE her more than they or I can describe. She is showered with love, clothes and toys at every turn :)

Little Pits Godparents love her too. Her Godmother C bought her a Christmas dress, and her Godfather Z is supposed to get her a pretty cool ride-on walker as well, spoiled Little Pit! Godmother M is full of Christmas ideas for her as well, I can't wait for her 1st Christmas!

Our home is warm, cozy and full of love and I couldn't be happier.

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Lilly Warehouse Sale

Though the warehouse sale this time around was small, REALLY small, I still came out a winner.

I had tried on the Wayles dress back in October in the Outer Banks, and I knew that if I ever found it on sale it would come home with me, but the bank account prohibited me from dropping $268 on it while on vacation.

I was going to go at 8, but cancelled the babysitter in lieu of waiting for Mr. Pit to get home to watch Little Pit and I could run in and out and be back by the time she was up from her afternoon nap. So I ran out the door at 3, convinced that absolutely nothing good would be left by the time I got there.

So, you can imagine my surprise when not only I saw the Wayles on the large poster going IN to the sale, but I was THRILLED to find it in my size almost 8 hours after the show had started today!

I was also lucky that they didn't have more items I just had to have, because that would have meant dipping into the Christmas funds that are meant for other people.

So, without further ado, I present my prize for the day, and all for $99!

YAY! I can't wait to wear it...I am thinking I will either wear it on Thanksgiving or to my BFF's rehearsal dinner, oh wait, maybe I'll just wear it to both!

Hope everyone else found what they were looking for at the sale if they went, otherwise I know a LOT of store are doing similar sales online and in stores while the warehouse sale is going on.

Have a great weekend!

XOXO Mrs. Pit

Big girl!

SOMEONE is getting REALLY good at sitting up on her own, and that same someone also sat ALL BY HERSELF in the grocery cart today!! (she was a little propped up by my jacket behind her, but still, NO car seat!!)

Posing nicely for Mom...

Ok, I'm done posing, let's go!
