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

Weekend Update! And Sadie’s new fur.

Top of the morning to ya, ladies! 
LouLou been slackin! 
A lot has been going on, engagement parties, weddings, MOVING and birthdays, oh LAWWWD. 
Friday night we had an engagement party for my friends Brad and Nicole. So fun! And yes, her ring be blingin πŸ˜‰
I also found it necessary to run a poof party in the bathroom. Please don’t mind my demon eyes. Or serious need for sunlight. 
Saturday we had a wedding for my friends Maggie and Adam. What did we do all day before the wedding? Well we went to the Makers Mark distillery of course.
  So Kentucky of us am I right? 
We dipped our own bottles of bourbon. Chrissy and I were excellent at this, might I add. I’m thinking this could be a part time gig no? Anyways…
After we became Bourbon Ambassadors, we went to watch the Cats play… which was less than thrilling. I chose to focus my efforts and attention on a pitcher of Blue Moon. 
Please also notice that for some reason, we decided it would be hysterical to put earrings on Caroline’s hubs, like the boys use to do circa 2000.
Oh hey, is that a  Backstreet Boy?

I sported my new Marley Lilly scarf of course πŸ˜‰ 
Then came wedding time. Dance dance, drink, dance… photobooth?? I am pretty sure I spent half the night in said photobooth. 
Did y’all know I am friends with SheHulk?

Then came my birthday!! Thank you to EVERYONE who wished me a Happy Birthday and helped make it so special! 
I went shopping with Chrissy, and then we had girls dinner at Saul Good, and it was just perfect. I am so so SO blessed to have the amazing girlfriends I have! There were about 12 of us, and I am pretty sure we shut the place down on a Monday night! 
And lastly, I find it important to update you all on the emotional status of my dog. 
Since the move she has been a little upset. I am not sure if it is the new surroundings, or the lack of a fenced back yard or what but she has been pouting. 
In attempts to make her feel better, I bought her this glorious cloak. It made her a tiny bit happier. 
More to come soon on the new casa (and pics!)… but right now, it is a disaster.

    Happy belated birthday!

  21. etta says:

    Happy belated birthday!

    My dogs want nothing to do with me during the day. As soon as my husband comes home they run begging him for attention as though I've been neglecting them. They're terrors.

  22. Erin says:

    The scarf looks so darling!! Happy belated birthday PLL!!!

  23. Is Nicole's bling REALLY that big? Wow!

    I don't have poof parties, but I do this weird twisty faux side braid thing with my hair and everyone wants me to replicate it on them. We have had many parties in the bathroom of places. Especially when someone's hair is getting frizzy and they want a quick fix!

    I LOVE that everyone in your picture is wearing a scarf. It's that time of year again. It was chilly this morning when I left for work, so I put one on and by noon I could have been outside in shorts! Gotta love South Carolina weather!


  24. Rebecca says:

    haha you and your friends are the blondentourage

  25. loving your scarf and cinderella card! (:

    Happy belated birthday! xoxo

  26. Katherine says:

    happy birthday!! And I think it is so cool that you go to visit Maker's Mark – I love the term "Bourbon Ambassadors!"

  27. Whitney says:

    I need to get me one of those scarves. Happy Belated Birthday! Excited about this weekend πŸ™‚

  28. Ashleigh says:

    I would love to go to Maker's Mark! Looks like fun!

  29. Kate says:

    Love the photobooth pics and the ever so cute sweater on your pooch! I'm sorry your dog's been depressed, my doggy gets like that too. It's just time for extra walks and lovin's ;0)

  30. BEST. POST. EVER. lol. so many amazingly fabulous things. Your puff party looks like a blast, though your actual party looks even more fun. That dress for the wedding… I'm obsessed. You killed it, as you always do. Still laughing over the emotional status of your dog. As much as I dream of dressing my lil Maddox Dior, he simply won't have it. He just puts his head down and goes in the corner like he's in doggy jail or something. It's awful. But i keep doing it, cause it's so stinking cute. lol. Can't wait to see the casa. Loved loved loved this post.

  31. I totally thought Nicole and her co-anchor Chris had something going on πŸ™ hahaha. I love watching Nicole on Lex18 she's great.

  32. Bri says:

    happy belated birthday!!! It looks like you had a great time!

  33. Savannah says:

    Happy Birthday! Your weekend and birthday celebrations look like so much fun!

  34. Happy belated!!

    I can't wait to go to Makers Mark…the hubs and I have been ambassadors for a long time! I cant believe we havent been there!

  35. I laughed out loud when I read "glorious cloak"! Sounds like you had a fun weekend!

  36. Samantha says:

    Looks like your birthday was a total success πŸ˜‰ I have meaning to ask! How did you learn how to do your make up so well? You always look so stunning πŸ™‚

  37. Brooke says:

    Pink Lou Lou you are just adorable! Question… I just saw you on "All in my 20's" where is that blue and white dress from in the picture? Cutest.dress.ever.

  38. Stephanie says:

    Happy Belated Birthday, Miss LouLou. I hope your birthday was everything you hoped and more. I wish you nothing but success and happiness in the next year to come, you more than deserve it! πŸ™‚

  39. Tiffany says:

    For some reason, I can't comment on the blog post that you did for Kristen on her blog, so I'll do it on yours! πŸ™‚

    Amen, sister! This could not be more right on point…..I should probably tattoo this baby on my arm so i can see it every day!


  40. Mighty Burns says:

    YAY so happy to hear your birthday was a blast!
    Your too cute in all these picures missy!! I love the bling you guys are all sporting too geez πŸ™‚
    Hope little miss thang perks up soon!

  41. Kori Donahue says:

  42. JMB says:

    That ring is HUUUUUGE! GO. GIRL.
    And does he have a brother? Want to hear about the new digs! xo

  43. Cynthia says:

    This is the first time I've ever commented on your blog, but I love it! I was just curious what font do you use for all the comments in you put in your pictures within your blog? Probably the weirdest question you've ever gotten I'm sure, but I love that font!

  44. Steph says:

    Love this post, love your blog, love love love! I'm a new blogger and so excited to be following you and your adventures!
    xo Steph

  45. Oh my goodness, how fun. Love all these photos of your happy memory making

  46. lol You and your doggie outfits. πŸ™‚ And happy birthday!

  47. SSS says:

    Chesta (remember, he's British) also had a bit of the puddles (sadness) when we moved. I was quite worried about him, but since he can be bribed, he recovered in 2ish weeks. He's told me his girl, Sadie Belle, will be just fine. ;o)

  48. Liz Taylor says:

    Honey you would have been proud of the Carolina poof I rocked all weekend. Love Big Sexy Hair and my new curler's.

  49. You once again have left me smiling, your post are full of life πŸ™‚ I want to make it to makers mark distillery so bad, I'm going to put it on my list of things to do right now !

  50. Jaclyn Kaye says:

    Aww yayyy… GO BUCKS !!! πŸ™‚ Happy to see some O-S-U in your southern life.

    Have a fab night doll!
