friends like these

(First of all, hi. Yes, I realize I’ve been mysteriously absent. Yes, I realize I owe many, many people emails – I promise I’ll get to them this week. Yes, I realize you might possibly care to know where I was. Yes, I really, really want to tell you. But I can’t. Yet. But on Thursday, I can. And between now and then I’m gonna hold a little drawing right here on ThePigbear just to make my waiting a little easier because, trust me, I’m busting at the seams to tell you about our adventure! So, check back on Tuesday to get all the details of my little contest and find out about the super-fun prize. Now…back to our regularly scheduled blog entry…)

So. Friends like these.

Where will we be when we all go our separate ways in six months? Our girls have been bosom buddies since birth. Lil’ Dickie will soon be joining the mix and I have no doubts that we’ll all fall head over heels for him in a matter of minutes. We eat dinner together at least once a week, sometimes even three or four times. A day doesn’t go by that we don’t see each other. And who else would bring dinner and dessert after you’ve been out of town for the week, only to sit down and watch your full-fledged slideshow?! You just don’t find friends better than this. We adore these people and are dreading saying goodbye. So maybe we just won’t.
I hear the brewery in Fruita is still for sale. Anyone? Anyone?

i am guessing anything..with the GAP Baby contest!!! I bet you are under contract and cant spill the beans??? That is my guess 🙂

JenniferJanuary 21, 2007 - 8:26 pm

I just couldn’t ever imagine saying goodbye to my wonderful girls. It would kill me! But thanks to the wonders of technology – like emails, IM chatting, and blogs – it might almost be like you didn’t really go so far away.

glad to hear you are ok and back in the bloggin world! can’t wait to hear what it is! everyone here at VT that keeps up with Pigbear keeps asking me “where has she been- it’s been over a week since her last post… is it due to Baby Gap?!” can’t wait to find out!

u went somewhere tropical (hence the monkey and the palm tree) and it was for pigbears photoshoot?

DeeJanuary 22, 2007 - 5:51 am

Glad it was something positive that kept you away! 🙂 Your bloggin’ public await the good news — perhaps Baby Gap related??? Come on, a little tiny hint?

I can’t wait to hear about your adventure!

DeniseJanuary 22, 2007 - 8:02 am

Glad to see you are back. I just can’t imagine where you’ve been!!!! 😉

I have SO been wondering about you guys! I hope you had quite an adventure! Can’t wait to hear all about it! So glad you have wonderful friends like that! So sorry that soon you won’t be as close in distance, but you’ll always be close at heart. 😉

This is so not fair Erin! I mean come on, you disappear for a week and don’t tell anyone where you went and are going to make us wait in agony to find out!! Totally kidding..I’m sure you would tell us if you could! So I guess a few more days won’t kill us..but rest assured, I am waiting on the edge of my seat to find out! I am hoping it was your photo shoot with the Gap! WOO HOO!

Are you guys moving or are your friends? Either way I’ll be thinking about you! It is so fun to move away and leave your best friends, especially when you see them everyday. They are family…better than family because they choose to stick around! : )

can’t wait…

AnnaJanuary 22, 2007 - 8:47 am

yay, you’re back! You’re such a tease – I’ll be back tomorrow!

JoyceJanuary 22, 2007 - 9:44 am

Looking forward to seeing and hearing all about your adventure…”coming soon.”
I certainly know what the feeling is like, when the friends in your life are not close by. Do remember, they will always be in your heart and mind.
Love You….

You’re making the pregnant lady all weepy. . . thanks for a lovely post and photo, and hey, at least we have 5 more months!

luvbnmaJanuary 22, 2007 - 1:35 pm

My guess is that the Pigbear has opened even more exciting doors than anyone expected. Hmmm. . . Until Thursday.


JaniceJanuary 22, 2007 - 1:44 pm

I read your blog all the time! Good luck with the GAP and looking forward to reading about Princess Pig Bear’s advantures!

Kristin HohenadelJanuary 22, 2007 - 3:39 pm

I’m dying to know what you’re hiding 🙂

P.C.January 22, 2007 - 3:44 pm

Lily knows where you’ve been and where you’re off to next 😉

Both places are very exciting!

SamanthaJanuary 22, 2007 - 6:27 pm

Maybe if we don’t talk about, it won’t happen. . . . Stupid husbands.

loriJanuary 22, 2007 - 6:54 pm

What a beautiful group of friends.

Welcome back to the blogging world you were missed!

Susie PSUJanuary 22, 2007 - 7:02 pm

I feel for you moving in 5 months. Many tears will be shed, and many tissues will be used, that’s for sure. I can’t wait until Thursday, so I’m checking the Book Club page. I want details!!
I have missed your blog, too, and we’re all glad you’re home safe and sound.

DeeJanuary 23, 2007 - 5:44 am

Ahhhhh, came back today hoping you would cave and give us a hint. Come on, Erin???? 🙂


MarciJanuary 23, 2007 - 10:40 am

Hmmm. Could Pigbear have gotten a new modeling contract and they are wisking you to far off places? =)
