Dear Mr. Hilton

Dear Mr. Hilton,

Having just returned from Stacey and Tanner's great adventure aka college visit, I had to pen a letter to you. I so appreciate that you let us stay at your absolutely beautiful hotel for free with our Hilton Honors Points. The Hilton Frontenac in St. Louis was stunning! Just the drive up made me realize that I had arrived at a special place. However Mr. Hilton, please let me share something with you.

I walked into the beautiful bathroom with Crabtree & Evelyn products on the counter and noticed the sumptuous folded towels immediately. The room was immaculate and lovely.
But that magnifying mirror on the wall has got to go! You see Mr. Hilton, when a girl is 46 she just doesn't want that much information about her face! I prefer not realizing that my eyebrows are as thick as an oak tree...and um I didn't even need to know about those little broken blood vessel thingies on my neck. Mr. Hilton, really, my husband has limited vision and I need reading glasses. In our eyes I still look 26. So Mr. time...if I call ahead will you remove the mirror?

Your faithful customer,

i just spat my tea out onto the keyboard because I laughed so hard! :)
You my dear are beautiful! I wouldn't have guessed you were a day over 26...your husband is a smart man ;) xx


Love it! How funny! Welcome to Missouri. It is a great place.

Oh Stacey, that is so funny! Aren't those mirrors horrible! They tell me a lot more than I want to know. I really enjoyed your letter to Mr. Hilton. You are so witty! laurie

Lou Cinda said...

Stacey! SO FUNNY and, sadly, SO TRUE!! I am 49 and almost to the point of avoiding mirrors altogether!!! Too scary!

Lou Cinda :)

I LOVE Crabtree & Evelyn...

Darlene said...

HAHAHA I have one of those in my bathroom and avoid looking into it at all costs!!!!!!!!! I know EXACTLY what you mean! Glad you had a great trip.

Love the Decor! said...

Too funny
those things should be outlawed!!

Donna said...

This is too funny! I was in Bed, Bath & Beyond the other day and I looked into one of "those" mirrors and I was SO SHOCKED!! My 50 years are definitely showing!
Thanks for making me laugh! I have had a bad day today.

Lisa@Pickles and Cheese said...

Too Funny! I hate those mirror too! Sounds like the trip is going well!

Just a little something from Judy said...

This is one great post! I am sure Mr. Hilton never took the time to even cast a glance into these mirrors. It truly is an eye opening experience.

Hope you and your son had a successful trip.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

Heeheehee! I wonder what your reply will be! Sounds like you had fun! And it makes me SO happy that I am married to a man very close to my own age! lol

Carol said...

How funny! I have experienced the same thing with mirrors like that, that is why I don't have one in my home! ;-)


southerninspiration said...

precisely why I use a compact hand held mirror to do my eye makeup but don't want a larger one!!! ;-)
I'm sure they will throw a towel over that sucker next time you call ahead! ;) funny, funny girl.


Tracy said...

LOL Girl!!!!Thats all I have to say about that! (too busy laughing)

Queenmothermamaw said...

I hope you have better luck than I. I had already sent a letter to no avail. Just have to grin and bear it. But just think when I look it I see 72 years staring back. Now be grateful gal.

Polly said...

I opened this thinking it would be a letter asking Mr. Hilton to please make his daughter behave, and act like she is older and wisor than her 10 year old, juvenile personality exposes her to be!

But this is good too!!

Funny for sure.

Tardevil said...

I have one of those mirrors, and rest assured, this isn't the Hilton! ;O) Hope you had a great time, otherwise!

Melissa Miller said...

LOL! Too funny Stacey.

You look gorgeous! :)

Debra @ Common Ground said...

Oh Stacey, I'm so sorry you missed it. Next time you're around email me. Leola's is easy to find, right behind Lambert's in the shopping center, off of CC in Ozark. 10 minutes from my house! AND Our daughter lives in St.Louis right across from Wash U.
Loved your letter. My 1980's bathroom is covered in mirrors, yuk, TMI for even me.

Rebecca said...

Hysterical my Edmond Girlfriend! Hysterical.

Now...get this...

Last year my hubby and I stayed at the Skirvin Hotel (OKCity) for our 30th anniversary. Would you like to know what this 5 Star Hotel was OUT OF?????

Cream of our Coffee!

We couldn't believe it! My guy will not drink his FAV BEV without it and I want it with my tea.

Finally...after we called for room service to bring it 5 times my guy finally went downstairs and ASKED the front desk for it.

"Oh...uh...we're OUT of Cream! Sorry!"

Want to know what he said?

"Then get someone from your staff to drive to SAM'S and get some!"

hahahhahah Shame on them!

Hugs to you~

Rebecca PS: Such nice weather, huh?

squawmama said...

OMG Stacey that is so funny BUT hold on girlfriend... You will evenutally need that magnifying glass if not a stronger one.. I know I am much older but believe me those hairs that fall off your head and attach to you upper lip and chin will need to go... With poor eyesight that is the only thing keeping me from looking just like my brother... Have a great day!


Amy said...

Ha, ha, Stacey,
You are just too funny! I know about those mirrors too. Actually, I kind of love them eyebrows really get a perfect tweezing with such magnification. At almost 50, seeing well enough to tweeze is a BIG issue. Why is it that the eyes are the first to go. I hope you and your son had a great trip. College shopping is a very special time. How did they grow up so fast? My son is a senior in college this year. Boy, times really does fly! Amy :)

Jeannette said...

Oh my gosh Stacey! What a riot!! I know how you feel they are making computers with video cameras at work and I was walking down the isle following my boss and as I turned I said Whoa! I'm not walking this way and turned and went the other way!!lol He said "I know what ya mean" but I'm not sure he really does!lol The Country Living I enjoyed reading but I still like books with more pictures! I did get a couple of tips but I'm not sure I would tell you to spend the $19.95 on it! I think a decorating book with lots of inspiration is a better "read"!lol Glad you're home safe and had a chance to stop by! Take care dear - Sincerely, Jeannette

Brenda @Cozy Little House said...

I'm laughing as well! But honey, I'll be 53 in February, so I probably got ya beat by a mile!

Happy@Home said...

I had to laugh at this post. I am currently staying at a Holiday Inn in Tennessee and they have the exact same mirror. I guess I will have to write a letter to Mr. H. Inn and set him straight too. LOL. Hope your trip was successful.

Laura said...

I am still laughing.

I have a 10 times magnifying mirror I use.

Everyday is a new day looking in that thing!


Michelle@Fromhousetohome said...

Hahahaha, Stacey that was great! I especially appreciated this post as I stepped on the scale this morning and was horrified at what it told me. Sounds like besides the mirror, your stay was wonderful!

Gretchen said...

Good tip Stacey! I haven't stayed in a Hilton for a while but I'll make note of that mirror. I'm 61 and for sure I don't need anything magnified.

Hugs, Gretchen

Cynthia @An Accomplished Woman said...

You are so funny. How fantastic that you could stay with your Hilton points and I agree completely about the mirror... but you are beautiful and have nothing to hide...

LOLOL! That was too funny! The lighting is not that bright in my bathroom and I feel the same way when I go to other bathrooms that have much better lighting! ...see things I'd rather not...AGING! LOL! ~hugs, Rhonda :)

santamaker said...

Stacey, I'm shocked........I thought you were 26 yrs. old! You're not?!?
He he..I've been wanting one of those in my bathroom for eyebrow plucking and other plucking I won't mention!

Mrs. G said...

OMG, that is so funny. I have a love/hate relationship with my magnifying mirror. My friend's dermatologist told her that everyone over 40 should throw theirs out.
My husband and I, being visually challenged, think we are as lovely as ever too.
This post cracked me up.
