Motherhood is hard, makeup doesn't have to be.
I simplify makeup for busy moms.

In case you missed it…

Miss Carrie was on Leno last night looking precious. And she got some laughs, good girl 🙂
In other news, I had to have an EGD yesterday (don’t ask me what that stands for) but they had to put a scopey thing down my throat and I had to get an IV! 
(I’m a baby when it comes to needles) But good news is nothing serious is going on. Soooo yay. I was pretty loopey all day yesterday- think Unicorn after wisdom teeth except not as funny. Darn it. Sadie and I slept all day on the couch, and the whole time all I could think of was how funny it would be if Sadie had been given a hospital bracelet for her recent surgery.
So a certain friend of mine needs suggestions for her boy’s birthday but she can’t post it on her blog because he will see! HELP girls! If you have suggestions for that awkward “we haven’t been dating that long, but I like you” birthday gift please help a sister out! I’ll make sure she gets your suggestions!
Happy Thursday ladies! PS Carrie is On Ellen today!

    tickets to something! a baseball game, concert, etc.!

  2. Anna says:

    tickets are always good. Obvi nothing too personal! I think I got Mike a nice button down shirt for one of our earlier present exchanges. The man can't shop to save his life.

  3. Marcy XOXO says:

    I kind of like the idea of getting him tickets to a sporting event or somewhere that he likes, etc… something that they can go to together and that he will enjoy! Just a thought?!

  4. Lindsey says:

    EGD's are no fun! I had one in the fall. I hope you're feeling better!

  5. Marcy XOXO says:

    PS Love her and her dress!!!

  6. stephanie says:

    Glad you're ok! And sometimes a couch day is exactly what a girl needs!!

  7. Suze says:

    First, Glad you are okay sweet girl! secondly, birthday suggestion : what about a burned cd of his favorite songs, tickets to a sporting event(like several mentioned)as long not too pricey , um picnic for two including his fav beverage of choice , something relating to his favorite sports team that might go with his house or something? Just some thoughts! Good luck! 🙂

  8. Raven says:

    I DID see Carrie on Leno and thanks for the heads up about Ellen, I will have to make sure to tivo that 🙂 Hope you feel better! I hate needles too, have to turn my head and can't look.
    Oh and I keep meaning to tell you every time I come to your blog, but that pic above with you and Carrie? Look like TOTAL twins. I'm sure you have heard that a million times, but it's uncanny! Lucky!

  9. Rachel says:

    SO glad everything is okay with your health! You had me worried at first 🙂 still sending prayers your way! And thanks for the Carrie update, I always feel out of the loop so I love when you update me on where she's been and what she's been doing 🙂 Happy it'salmostfriday Thursday 🙂

  10. Lindsay says:

    Glad to hear all is well! If you feel like playing, i have a link party going on at !

  11. jayme says:

    after a month of dating, i got my guy a wine aerator thing (he LOVES red wine) and he uses it all the time! it's awesome for the red wine drinker and nothing too crazy…

    then again, he got me a canon rebel after a month of dating so he believes in going all out…haha

    ps, i totally mentioned The Carrie Underwood in today's post, thought you may enjoy…

  12. S says:

    So glad to hear you're OK!

  13. mommyspice says:

    Take him to a baseball game! Or cook dinner for him and a few friends or just the 2 of them. Gift wise, I would keep it simple or silly. A new hat, a cooking gadget…

    I'm glad everything went ok at the dr!

  14. As I said to you in my tweet…all I want for Christmas are Carrie's legs. Le sigh 😉

  15. haha! Love the unicorn video! glad everything went well with your EGD.

    I would suggest tickets to maybe a baseball game or a concert.. or maybe cologne or a nice shirt? I mean it all depends on the guy I guess. I got my man the new Tiger Woods Masters game for the PS3 for his bday and he loves it.


  16. asj says:

    after dating for a few weeks I got my boyfriend [now husband] this keychain…

    clearly, it worked out well for me 🙂

    also college/favorite sports team garb, something to remind him of home since he just moved away are all great gifts!

  17. Laura says:

    Carrie def looks so cute 🙂 i wish i could get my man traded to Nashville to join her haha.. i'll let you know if that happens 😉 Glad to hear you're doing alright and everything is ok! Suggestions for your friend… thats a toughy, because it def could all depend on the guy… ugh :/ i'm no help.

    miss u

  18. Laura says:

    a friend of mine who is into electronic music type stuff just posted this link not sure if its up his alley or not but thought I would throw it out there.

  19. Jenn W says:

    i can't wait to see Carrie on Ellen today!!

  20. Erica says:

    The name of that(EDG) would scared just by the name of that.Glad to see everything was ok. I think i need to see that movie that comes out tomorrow because even more because Carrie is in it.

  21. Jill says:

    I could use an afternoon laying on the couch with my doggie but could do without the throat scope and needles! ick! I'm glad your procedure went okay girlie 🙂

  22. Tricia says:

    I can't believe I missed Carrie on Ellen. Love both those gals. I'm drawing a blank for a b-day gift for your friend. That stage definitely is the hardest. I'm sure it will be great no matter what she does. Hope you start to feel better. Love your blog. So adorable!

  23. Kori says:

    Awww honey…hope you're feeling better! I'm taking your button…I thought I already had it, but realized not.

    I'm hosting a blog hop again tomorrow for the 2nd Fashion Friday. I'd love it if you'd link up with us. Any post on fashion will do! Have a great night gorgeous! Kori xoxo

  24. Mighty Burns says:

    she was on ellen today too! SHe is so stinkin cute I swear:

    ~Baby of the family 🙂

  25. Inna xoxo says:

    My first gifts for my boyfriend were mostly funny. HE LOVED THEM! I got him an old fashioned Superman tin lunch box for work hahahaha, and some really funny toilet paper, dont ask. lol. hes long distance, so i ordered him some pizza (his favorite) to be delivered as a suprise when he got home, and had a Red Velvet cake delivered to his door. He loved it! It was funny and silly, and perfect! Not too mushy mushy, he was fed, and he was happy! haha 🙂
    xoxo Inna 🙂

  26. CMae says:

    Thank you Pink Lou Lou for being my DvR today 🙂 I def missed Carrie on the show last night and got to see it bec of you sharing it today! thanks a million! 🙂

  27. * Jessica * says:

    Matthew Morrison AND Carrie Underwood?! Leno had a GREAT show last night! Unfortunately, I just had to stay up to watch the whole thing and was exhausted as a result all day today! 🙂 Oh well, it was a small price to pay! Hope you had a great day!

  28. melhuff says:

    If he has a good sense of humor, get him a gag gift like a Shake Weight. A friend of mine got one for her birthday from her "been on 4 dates" guy and it was hysterically funny! Definitely broke the birthday present pressure and everyone had a good laugh. 🙂

  29. Michelle says:

    I'm glad you are okay!! Suggestions: I agree with the others. I think concert tickets or sports tickets would be good. Definitely a "guy" gift and something that they can do together!

  30. LOL…clearly cannot watch Glee while trying to post a comment…sorry for the THIRD try. BUT, I was trying to say that I loved the dress that Miss Carrie wore!

  31. CDM says:

    EGD = Esophagogastroduodenoscopy 🙂 haha glad you're ok —> carrie<3 for LIFE
