Girls day

On Saturday…i grabbed my best girl and we headed down to the town of Morris for the day.

I have not had a Lola day in quite a while…andย let me tell you…I am so glad

i took her with me….because she really enjoys our just together time so much…

and needs it.

We grabbed out boots…

and headed down south to The Three French Hens Holiday Market.

Lola and i first grabbed some breakfast…of course she chose a cinnamon roll and a chocolate milk…

i tell you…this girl could live on sugar…and still roll with the day.

I only had one bite of her roll.

Pinky promise.

We found our way down to Morris…and did ourselves a little Christmas shopping.

After we did a little shopping…and Lola had a cupcake for lunch…

i only had a tiny bite…

i swear…

okay…i might have licked all the frosting off the top…leaving Lola very upset.

So we bought another one.

Cupcakes make the best lunch…you should try it sometime.

Don’t call me when your jeans don’t fit anymore though.

It’s okay to have fun though…and splurge every once in a while…

we stepped outside and had ourselves a little date with Herb the horse.

Then we headed to the downtown part and hit all the shops.

Hands down….this was the best window display i have seen in a long time.

Loved it.

Okay…this is where the afternoon got a little sketchy.

I am warning you.

On my little mental list of things i have always wanted to see and get photos in…..


are you ready…

a cute laundromat.

We were walking around…when low and behold…

a tiny cute…little place with just a handful of washing machines and dryers.

Of course…lola thought i was weird for wanting to take her photo.

She lived though.

We celebrated our win of finding a laundromat with an ice cream cone.

Mint chip for lola…and double scoop of peanut butter cookie dough for me please.

We had a great day…..we even came home with some pretty cool of which

includes some 8 year old aged cheddar cheese from a cheese monger.

Aged cheddar sure tastes good…but it also gives you stinky breath.

Just sayin.

p.s. no clothes were harmed in any way while we played in the laundromat.

p.p.s and just for fun…we filled ย all the machines up with quarters…ready for the next customers.

p.p.s.s. Bryan thought it was odd that i even knew what a washing machine was.


  1. How cute!! Looks like a fun day. My hubby & his friends did a laundromat photoshoot a few months ago! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. How cool you loaded them all up with quarters! What goes around comes around! Great lesson! Doesn’t everyone buy new underwear when they’ve run out instead of wash it? My husband thinks I don’t know what a washer is either!

  4. Sounds like a good day:) Who knew a laundromat could be so fun?! Cute photos!

  5. Oh how lovely! I can’t wait until Anabelle is a bit bigger and then us two can go out on a girls’ day out! :))

  6. oh what a great day! I had fun with ya! I just wrote a dear little black dress letter yesterday in preperation for this crazy fork lifting week that is coming..Yes! anyway had a great time the photos..wish I had my camera working..I have been posting stories of my life …crazy life… lately I wait with bated breath for a new camera..let it be so! let it be so….if say it enough it will come true …right? Love ya mean it! Stephanie

  7. Sounds like a wonderful day full of sweets;-)

  13. You might just be the most fun person to shop with. A laundry mat? And the blessing you left. Love it.

  14. Love that window display too! DARLING! You too looked great…and I think the laundry mat was a great idea…I’m sure those lucky people who didn’t have to pay for a wash were grateful you sweet thing!

  15. Love the laundromat pic! That’s on my list of things to do too! I also LOVE your dress, tights and boots. I think I remember you saying the boots were Anthro. The dress too? If not, where did you get it? I’m in the process of trying to find “boots-worthy” dresses. =)

  16. I WANT, mean reeeeally want that OWL !!
    WIll you tell me where you saw it and maybe they will ship me one?

    I love the laundromat photo shoot …

  18. I was in Morris, too…it was more like the afternoon. Wish we could have met. It was so crowded in the Holiday Market, I didn’t get pictures. Should have found the laundrymat. Since you were buying I could have thrown in my coat.


  19. Looks like you had a sweet & fun day with Lola! Great pictures…my fav is the aerial shot of the boots. Cute!

  25. ok, so just hang with me a bit here..I may have pms and may be stressed with the 20 people I am cleaning and cooking for but I have to get t his off of my chest now
    I knew I loved you when you sent me that awesome pad
    we really boded over natural menstruation
    so I need you to know
    that you are beautiful
    and I am not gay
    not that there is anything wrong with that
    I am just attracted to you…your family…your sense of style..the way you write…your photos
    your attention to detail
    because life with out detail so… so

    I also think you should write a book…about you and lola
    because your mother daughter posts INSPIRE the crap out of me
    I am reminded of the beauty of the relationship between mom and daughter
    the clothes you wear
    the cupcakes you eat
    the shops you shop
    it is a book
    and I love it

    and so that is is
    if I had more time, I could write a way shorter comment
    but here it is
    my long way of saying THANK YOU


  26. You look so cute and I love the bangs:)

  27. Gotta love a girls day with your girl.
    I love doing that with my girl too. It really is about the simple things huh?
    I am seriously loving your boots!!
    We don’t have Anthro here in Aus, so do you want to send me a pair over pretty please? ๐Ÿ˜‰
    You always look great in your skirts and dresses. I am mostly a jeans girl, but I could get inspired…

  28. gah i wish i lived close i would so be your friend!
