Catch up time...

I know you've all been on the edge of your seats waiting for a Pitts update, so here you go...

**Disclaimer: my camera still does not have a flash and I haven't had a chance to upload all my phone pics, so I have "borrowed" some pics from friends and family. Thanks in advance ABL, Aimee, Becca and Jason. :)

Its been a fun, but exhausting couple of months. With all the birthday fun in August, I forgot to post about Divine Consign! I worked both Plano and Grapevine and they were great (as usual). The girls are gonna look super cute this fall/winter! Here's some of my favorites (including a different spin on Christmas dresses this year)...











We celebrated my Mema and Grandad's 50th anniversary at 3 Forks in August- had such a great time with our family!!








We got to go to Hillsong United (on Makayla's birthday, Aug. 25th). It was incredible! Awesome to worship with a big group like that. New favorite worship song- With Everything (My favorite part's about 3:45 into the song).

The first weekend of September was my cousin, Chandra's wedding. My mom and sisters and I made their cupcake cake and it turned out great! We had such a blast- who knows, there may be a future business. :) Here's some pics...









We spent Labor day at my cousin, Josh's house and had a blast with a bunch of family and friends- thanks for being great hosts, Josh and Jeff (not that they're reading this). :) Here's what the kids did...



The girls went to the first of FOUR princess parties we will have over a 5 week period at the end of September. They had such a fun time celebrating Addy's 4th- there was even a bounce house- so fun!!








That was about it for September...

Our 2nd princess party was for Nat and Lainey. The girls were in heaven! REAL live princesses came (Ariel, Belle and Cinderella) and they put on makeup, got their nails painted, made necklaces and got to hear Cinderella's story from Cinderella herself! But the kicker was the ride in this...




It was such a blast and the girls are still talking about it. Here's some more pics of the princesses...














October 11th was my niece, Emmeline's first birthday. We celebrated the day before at my Mema's house with a fabulous tea party (but in the girls mind, it was their 3rd princess party). :)









And the highlight of October (well, maybe the year)... Jaron and I went with Aimee and Eric to the U2 CONCERT!!! Muse opened for them and we were on the floor- about 10 feet from the outer circle. During the first song, the Edge made his way over the ramp and stopped right in front of us!! Aimee and I about lost our marbles. It was very surreal. As much as I love Bono, I think I was a little more excited about seeing the Edge- he's incredible! Great experience and something I will never forget.








Other than that, our lives have consisted of Sunshine school, work and church. I've joined MOPS at Irving Bible Church and absolutely love it! We've also been doing Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University, which has been VERY helpful- I definitely recommend it. I've enjoyed doing the Beth Moore "Esther" study and we've started a small group with a couple of couples that has been SO great. Wow, no wonder I'm so tired. :)

Lastly, I wanna brag on my hubby a bit... he's been taking such good care of our yard and did this while Makayla and I were gone yesterday....





I couldn't get very good pics of the whole yard, but the plants add so much and he did such a great job. Thanks honey!!

We enjoyed lunch outside on this fabulous day, hope ya'll are taking advantage of this gorgeous weather, too.



Ok, we're caught up... have a great rest of the month!!
