It's been a bit crazy over here at the Pit house, we were out of town for 10 days, and I spent yesterday afternoon recovering from a migraine and so today I am doing everything i was supposed to do yesterday, like 4 loads of laundry!
Anyways, now that we're back, and it's August 10th, that means that it's LESS than a month to my birthday, yahoo!!
This year we are celebrating BIG TIME because we got the UNGETTABLE GET...we got a reservation at Talula's Table .
As one of the hardest reservations IN THE COUNTRY to get, we had to call last year on September 3rd to get the reservation for THIS year on the same day. Mr. Pit was a total hero and got up early that morning and was the first one to get through. Did I already tell you he's awesome, because he is.
Anyways, so we are taking 10 of our friends and family to dinner with us, as the farm table hold 12. It's BYOB and it's a chefs tasting menu for 8 courses. YUM! We are also splurging on a limo so we can all have some fun and then we'll spend the rest of labor day weekend celebrating with our families. (Oh yeah, forgot to tell you we're celebrating BOTH our birthdays, Mr. Pit's is September 2nd, and mine is the 6th. Also, my Mother In Laws is August 31st, so really it's a tri-celebration since the elder Pit's will be joining us too)
Little Pit isn't invited, as the start time for the dinner is the exact time as her bedtime, she'll have to celebrate with us later, I'm sure she'll understand :)
Anyways, so since we're going out to dinner I need something to wear and the Lilly fall collection totally BLOWS MY MIND. I haven't been this stoked by them for a seasons collection in a LONG time, well done Lilly!
Here's what caught my eye...
The Eryn Dress. I fell in love with it when it came in pink and yellow, but this pink and navy combo...oh yes, YES PLEASE!
The Cody sweater. I love the navy and white, but the kelly green and navy is even better. absolutely LOVE it.
These wedges. I don't know what they're called but I love them. I wish I had anywhere to wear them, or any desire to wear them as 'regular' shoes...but with Little Pit RUNNING around these days, these wedges will have to stay as a fantasy shoe, oh well.
I have pictures of Little Pit from vacation, but don't have time to upload them now so they'll come later this week.
Oh, but my other fun piece of news is that we get to go see THESE GUYS tomorrow...
Guster has been my favorite band since college (it was a tight race between them at Pat McGee Band while in college, but post college, Guster reigned supreme). I love every song, and I love the lyrics and the way I can put them on the iPod while cooking dinner and even Little Pit bounces and moves to their music from her high chair.
We'll probably be the oldest people there by about 5-10 years tomorrow, as we were the last time we saw them in concert, but I couldn't care less. I dance around like a 20 year old, buy beer out of plastic cups (and I still get carded b/c I look like I'm 17) and I dance the night away. The concert is at the Festival Pier down on Penn's Landing so hopefully the weather will hold and not break into a crazy thunderstorm like the last time. Either way though I haven't been this excited for an event since Little Pit came along and I sort of want to leave and camp out there tonight but I'll hold my horses and wait until the gates actually open at 6 tomorrow night.
So, that's our week, I'll no sooner be done all this laundry than the three of us will create it all over again, but such is life.
Feel free to buy any of the above items for my birthday :) Just kidding, well, not really, but yeah, just kidding.
Hope everyone is having a great week!
xoxo Mrs. Pit
