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

Yes, this happened.

Alright friends, you are in for a treat of a story.
I have lots to share about Bachelorette-palooza in Chicago this past weekend, but this recent event that has occurred has taken priority.
Soooo…. I was stuck in an all day long training session off site from work today, when I got an email that there was a package for me at the office, but no one (including me) had any clue as to its contents. This was about noon, so I had to sit all day wondering what the mystery package was, and more importantly WHO this surprise was from. At one point my sister had me convinced that Carrie Underwood had sent me some goodies and asked me to be her BFF, but I thought that was slightly unlikely. πŸ˜‰
After I got out of training I high tailed it over to the office to find out what was inside that box! There was no way I was waiting until tomorrow, I mean seriously I am the kind of girl that searchers for her Christmas presents, I was DYING to know what it was, and who it was from!
the box was HUGE! and filled with tons of black and white tissue paper. Exhibit A:

THEN, this gorgeous little gem was inside…
I had no idea what was going on, but I promise you I was NOT expecting what was inside. 
And what was inside that beautiful little Lilly clutch… 
Oh my word. I have never been so surprised by something so endearing, and so thoughtful. I just sat there for a minute taking it all in, so overwhelmed that someone would take the time to do something so sweet and romantic for little old MOI! Seriously straight out of a movie. I think I just squealed, looking around for anyone still in the office to show my present to, but alas I was alone. So i packed up my surprise and headed out the door. The whole way home I was just so overwhelmed by the uniqueness, and sincerity of this gift, that someone who doesn’t even know me would go to such a grand gesture to make me smile, and ask me out on a date! So so touching. 
So now as I sit here watching the Bachelorette with my sisters, having a glass of wine, messy pony tail on top of my head in my glasses (HA, I know, a SIGHT) I am just so at a loss of what to do from here! 
LittleLouLou thinks I should send him a card to work telling him to meet me at a baseball game, and that I will be the blonde waiting for him on the pitching mound. BabyLouLou thinks I should do something really classy, like tell him to meet me at the arcade at Gatti-town. 
Clearly the sissies are kidding, and clearly I will not be doing either of these. 
Mr.You know who you are– if you are reading, I would like to tell you to expect a call from Miss PinkLouLou in the very near future. You have made my day.

And to my secret little cupid LouLou readers who I feel confident had a hand in this, you are too sweet.

I am really excited to see this unfold, I will keep you posted.

    I would like to be your date paparazzi, to post a play-by-play of your date meeting on your blog from afar. That is creepy, sorry, I didn't mean it, haha πŸ˜› I'm just thinking, holy crap here, my husband didn't even send me flowers on my freaking birthday (oops probably shouldn't air his dirty laundry), yet you've never even met this guy.

  83. Aleyta says:


  84. So cute!! LOVE that purse, how sweet of him! But I have to say…oh my goodness I think you are my twin. I'm OBSESSED with Carrie, get told I look like Carrie, have baby hair and wear extensions (well, I don't much anymore… the bf likes my baby hair oddly enough), I have a flat face dog (boston terrier), and studied design/advertising. crazy!

    But wow I'm thinking there is something to your little match maker blog readers!
    Ahh Im so excited for you! If I loved closer I'd want you to re tell me the story over wine and good chocolate (and sister Id be in my jam jams and glasses too!)

  96. Chrissi says:

    This is absolutely wonderful! What kind of guy would take the time to sweep you off your feet before even meeting you in person?!? LouLou, you MUST give this guy a chance and then document the date(s) in detail. A guy that goes though this much thought and effort to woo a girl is definitely ahead of the game. Good luck with the hunt for Mr. Right!

  97. Oh I canNOT wait to hear more about this fellow. If he is that sweet without ever meeting you I can only imagine what a gem he will be once he gets to know you! Good luck girl!

  98. Marry Him! Sweetest thing I have ever heard!!

  99. Oh my, that is so cute!! I sincerely hope this works out because this story is too cute!

  102. Merbella says:

    Honestly, I am at a loss for words, and this didn't even happen to me! lol

    Wow. All I can really think to say is, take this guy off the market ASAP. He is most definitely a keeper.

  103. Morgan says:

    the pitching mound situation reminds me of 'never been kissed' (which is such a cute movie…)– and the boy sounds amazingly sweet!!! go for it girl! πŸ™‚


    Go get him, girlfriend!

  105. Sara says:

    That is So romantic!!! Gah good guys really do still exist πŸ™‚

  106. The Speaker says:

    Fairly new to your blog- and I am in love! My parents live in Lex, so I am there as often as I can be…what an awesome story- can't wait to read about the phonecall! XOXOOXOX
