Finally. I am so glad. Aren't you?

This week was a busy week and it was my first time leaving the house by myself with all three girls in tow. Where did I go you ask? My mom's house. I guess that makes it no big deal then, huh? It was a fun day and super nice to be out of the house. I left all three girls there to do errands. I would feed Soul, then leave for 2 hours, come back, feed her again, and then leave for another 2 hours. I am her food, so I can't be too far away! In my every two hour galavants I did some thrifting and errands that I have been longing to do, but don't dare do with three!

On my thrifting excursion, I got some goodies, one of which is a 1200FF Polaroid camera. I can't wait to try that out, but first I must get spectra film. Also, I got the globes, well one is from etsy, that are now placed in a perfect place on the old French pie safe. I love them.
loft/studio work area
This room is my studio area, the other half of this room, which I purposely did not picture, is a horrendous mess! My mess. I haven't quite figured out to make all the space functional. I love this side of the room though. This is the side where my girls paint, color, read, and play while I am working. Though, the room looks clean, don't let this picture fool you. If you get up close there are marker stains all throughout the carpet. I dream for the day when we can have wood floors!

Time to get my Friday started and wake the girls. Ben and I might go on a date tonight, but it depends if we have babysitters. I hope so. I really want to get out with my Ben! I love just being with my husband!!!

That's all folks! Happy Friday!!!


  1. That's great that you were able to spend some time with your girls all by yourself : )

    I hope you can get a date night with your husband - those are always the best!

  2. I would babysit if I were a little bit closer..and if you actually knew me...

    thank you for admitting to the mess not shown...I feel better about my own mess now!

    have a lovely weekend

  3. how nice to have your mom there to help out. We got recently got a globe and our oldest loves it. Every time someone mentions a country, she runs to it and we figure out where it is.

  4. That map on the wall is awesome! What is it of?

    Hope you get a date night! You deserve it.

    Happy Friday!

  5. I love being with my husband too!

    It's funny... but 90% of the time...we talk about our kids.

    Go figure!

    Happy date night (i hope)

  6. your house looks perfect! hope you have a great time tonight! oh, love the headband photos, so cute.

  7. So lovely!

    Will you please share how you framed your map of Paris? We have two antique maps that we want to hang. Thank you!

  8. I was going to offer babysitting too! I hope you two get to go out tonight! Reading about your day reminded me of when my two were little and I'd be so thankful for my inlaws to watch them so I could just get out to the grocery!! I guess it's just a reminder to me to not take any time for granted, even now. Boy, do I miss them being little!

  9. i simply love how you use white in your home! from the little peeks here and there and the bits of photos i have seen, it looks like an open, breathable space. gorgeous!

  10. love thrifting :) this room is so cute too
    hope that you get out with the hubby tonight and have a good time

  11. what a lovely room! i like your honesty! one side AWESOME and well the other side hmmmm! at least you have one side! my entire house is the other side! ugggh i will get it one day!

  12. I so know what you mean about hardwood floors! We live in a rental with ugly blue carpet! It hides stains well at least!

  13. good news! we went on a date and had lots of fun. it was kinda nice to be without the brave and true and all the bickering they do quite often. we had loads of sushi and crab... yum!!!

  14. Yay for getting out! I very rarely go out with all three kids on my own. I normally do most of my shopping, well, let me rephrase, I always do all of my shopping while our eldest is at school in the morning. Just the two youngest and myself. It's our little "thing". Our youngest only just started taking a bottle (he's now six months old)....I can't wait to get out on my own once my husband gets back!

  15. I LOVE your blog!! Thank you so much for visiting mine:) It is in the very early stages and it is going to take some getting used to, that is for sure!!
    Your kids are adorable and you are too!!


  16. Oh - I have that SAME map of Paris! It is one of my favorite household items. Hanging right in my living room for all to see....

    And what house with kids doesn't have some sort of artistic stain on the wall? It's the perfect canvas - huge, clean, and never-ending! :)

  17. more about the map...? please
    it's beautiful... but can't really see it

  18. lovely space! looks comfortable..

  19. where do you get your spectra film ??

  20. the map... oh gosh! i don't remember where it is from. i think i did just a random google search for it once upon a time and came across it at some no-name shop. sorry that isn't much help! it isn't vintage though, it is a reproduction.

    racheljoy- get spectra film from polapremium.com

  21. Where do you go thrift shopping. Oh, and love the space!
