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

a little PinkLouLou PR… and a luau!

Well ladies, for some reason I was asked to come on WKYT This Morning at 8 on Sunday, as resident local blogger and talk about all things hair, makeup, and trends I am seeing this wedding season with my clients.

I was extremely humbled and flattered beyond belief when the fabulous Elizabeth Dorsett asked me to come on the show. I was thinking to myself, you have GOT to be kidding… you want ME?!? Clearly she didn’t see me grab my boobs on national television circa le Family Feud (which I know I still owe you guys the episode by btw)

So of course I was a nervous lil PLL. What will I say, what will I wear, and what will I do with my HAIR??
All very important questions.

All things considered… I think I did pretty well. You see, I am highly aware that I am NOT cut out for a career in public speaking, or in front of the camera. I do better behind the scenes on my laptop with a glass of wine. We all have our niches right?
BUT, I was happy with it and proud of myself for doing it!!

I got the following pics from friends and family who caught the show, it was so sweet!!

 

Thank you so much to Elizabeth Dorsett and Alex Hayes for having me on the show. I don’t know how you girls do it, you make it look so easy! You can catch more of WKYT updates here! I had so much fun, and pending some more practice, I would love to come back! Thank you also to my sisters for getting up at 6 on Sunday, coming to my house, letting my do your hair (not saying one word about anything wrong with it) and accompanying me! I love you two more than anything, and the fact that you are so supportive just means the world to me.

Sadie says she is coming next time. Just preparing everyone. πŸ˜‰

Here is the segment, just pretend you don’t notice that I say “a more natural look” more than once. Ha. Apparently I want you girls to look natural. What I mean is I want you to look like yourself, and be comfortable!

Here are some playing on the set photos… Hannah fit right in with her experience on the Daily Show last summer. She belongs in TV production I do believe.

Speaking of le bebe sissy… I have some exciting news. I know, this girl just doesn’t quit πŸ˜‰

I am so SAD proud to announce that my little Hannah banana was selected for Teach for America, and will be leaving us for Hawaii next week!

In celebration, Sunday evening we had a luau at my parents for the baby’s birthday/graduation/going away to Hawaii.Β It was quite crazy I assure you. I have never seen so many college kids…since I was in college. I forgot how much they eat!

TRY and tell me she is not the cutest…I’ll fight you πŸ˜‰

Award for most festively dressed goes to lil sis’ boyfriend Matt. He is so great. That shirt he is wearing is from his parents honeymoon in Hawaii. How cute is that??

It was a great weekend. I could not be more thankful for all of God’s blessings. There are so many great things happening in my family’s lives, and I am so excited to see where we all end up! Thanks Nicole, Chrissy and Brian for coming to my sisters farewell soiree, it meant the world!! xoxo

    Oh, you are the cutest! I think you did a wonderful job on your interview. In one part you made the expression on your face reminded me of Reese Witherspoon! πŸ™‚

    Congratulations to your baby sis! That is so exciting that she is going to Hawaii with the Teach for America program. My baby sister is just finishing up her contract with Teach for America. She absolutely loved it, I hope Hannah has as great of an experience as my sister did.
