It’s Tuesday, and it’s random

Thanks for all of your sweet comments yesterday, I love you guys! 
Just a few things on this here Tuesday. 
1. Look what showed up at the office yesterday. 
How precious? Is this not the most creative little arrangement you have ever seen? In my ‘self pity sulking found out my ex has a girlfriend’ moment this past weekend I tweeted that I wished someone would send me flowers {I know, ridiculous} but anyways I never thought anyone WOULD! 
Well sweet little Raven sent me this fancy little surprise and MADE.MY.DAY. So sincere and thoughtful, I definitely started crying when I saw it. Thanks Raven for the smiles yesterday! 
2. Why is my dog the cutest thing in the world? 
Exhibit A: we laid out together this weekend. 
Exhibit B: She iz Diva Pug
3. Miss Pretty in Pink Meg sent me this picture the other night, and I DIED laughing. Looks like I’m not the only one into photoshoppin photos these days 😉 hahahahahah 
4. This song makes me extremely happy right now. LOVE IT!
5. I have a BACHELORETTE party to look forward to this weekend in Chicago with my girlies!

Speaking of Bachelorette parties, how CUTE is this cake??

I have to highlight baby sis’s hair tonight… wish me luck. 

Happy Tuesday lovelies!

    um your diva pug, seriously. talk about a girls best friend. so loving her polka dot bikini.

    LOVE honeybee!! and have a blast in Chicago! Sheesh, I swear every other post is about a bachelorette party for you. I guess that's what you get when you are pinkloulou and everyone wants you at the party 😉

    I love Ms. Sadie and that arrangement is adorbs!! Such a great idea.

    My sister and her boyfriend are stationed at Fort Campbell, KY and Mr. Shelton put on a free concert on base this past Sunday. She said he is amazing and would gladly be sister wives with Miranda after seeing him live! I love that song too!

  10. JMB says:

  11. Holly says:

    How sweet of Raven to send you that!! Oh man, I had a meltdown a few months ago when I found out my ex had a girlfriend. It suckssss finding out they move on before you do, and makes you wonder what's wrong with you–I relate TONS to your post from yesterday. Hope this weekend is a great fun one!

  12. Rachel says:

    1) Lovin' those flowers! Pink Martini- toooo cute
    2) B'ette parties in Chi-town is SO fun! Enjoy! I always have a little too much fun there… I'm jeal.

  18. Sasha says:

    Love me some Blake! I went to high school with him and did some back road beer drinking back in the day!

  19. sSe says:

    That was so sweet of Raven, and I'm happy to hear it sounds like you're coming out of your single gal slump. But ohmahlord, you are in sooooo many weddings. You should totally do a post about all the weddings you have been in. I have a feeling 27 weddings would have nothing on you!

  20. Caroline says:

    Love that super cute arrangement! So sweet!

  21. Nicole Z says:

    What an adorbs arrangement!! Will keep that in mind next time someone I know needs a pick me up, what a great friend! And I L.O.V.E. that song!! Definitely been a staple to my summer anthem list 🙂

  27. Kendra says:

    What sweet friends you have. Im glad you are cheered up and that cake looks delicious.

  28. hannah. says:

    miss thang. we need to talk!
    first. i hold you completely responsible for me being on my 100th cup of coffee today. i stayed up all night ready EVERY SINGLE ONE of your posts…like EVERY single one. two. the post about the ipone autocorrect made me laugh so hard that i woke up the hubs at like 4 in the mornin since the bed was shaking violently from my attempts at keeping my laughter silent. not successful. third. my baby girl (who is only 1) is not walking around calling our dog diva. she was sitting with me whilst i watching sadie belle get her bells scratched. that is all i have for now.

  29. melissa says:

    Oh lordy. Sadie is the sassiest little pug there is. Hope you have a blast in Chicago. We did my bachelorette party there and had the best time!

  30. Aleyta says:

    Cute!!!!!!! Raven is so sweet!! And you are such a catch from what I can tell. Holy, any guy would be lucky to snag you 🙂

  31. Ashley says:

    Really, I need a pug child. Maybe then my mini will stop asking for a little brother or sister. (Doubtful, this is how we ended up with Guppie who just swims in his bowl and gets no acknowledgment at all)

  32. Loved the Sadie video, my pooch does the same thing. As soon as a stop petting her she puts her nose unger my hand so I can pet her again. Your video reminded me of this one:

    Whatever that is I want one!

  33. Lauren says:

    My sweet, Harper does that exact same thing! Why do we spoil them and do that to ourselves? 🙂

  34. LC says:

    Diva pug, hehe. I wish I could teach my dog to use some tanning oil too, she has so much to learn..

  35. Sunny & Star says:

    That is so sweet that you got flowers and they are adorable. Your pug is so cute!

    We are hosting a Pamper Yourself Giveaway. Please stop by and enter.

  36. Jillian says:

    That dog is so cute!!

  37. Jill says:

    I LOVE that your card says "Allison Pinkloulou" hahaha that is THE best! 🙂 Also, love that cute cake! You're making that for Leah bear, right? 😉

  38. lovey the flowers… are you a member of ruelala by any chance?? Hobo is on sale tomorrow and they usually have lauren clutches for a pretty good price! Not that I need another one… but that's not important 🙂

  39. Katie says:

    What a sweetheart friend! I'm glad it made your Tuesday – Ugh the worst weekday! Have fun in Chitown.. its always a good time! Perhaps you'll meet a few potential Mr. Lou Lou's? 🙂
    xox- Katie @

  40. Amanda says:

    How sweet of your friend! Oh and Sadie is adorable. I wish I could have a puppy play date with her!
