What About a Purse?

Enter the giveaway for TAYGA HERE.

So being as this is a "Fashion" type blog I thought this tag would fit. DiPaola Momma at Chicken Nuggets of Wisdom "Bagged" me with this one. Or rather smacked me across the head with her duffle bag she calls a purse...

Here goes with Rule No. 1:

1) "Post a picture of whatever bag you are carrying as of late. No, you cannot go up to your closet and pull out that cute little purse you used back before you had kids (Ha! Good try...). Show what you carried today or the last time you left the house."

This should tell you: pragmatic, boring, simple, unfashionable...shall I go on??

Then Rule No. 2 is post a picture of the contents inside your bag. The theory here is that you can learn a lot about someone from what is in the bag... oh, and you can steal mommy secrets...

Go ahead you voyeurs. Get your jollies here. This is VERY exciting. The junk inside consists of a little plaid wallet, leather checkbook, stamps, phone, sun glasses... All again practical items. I actually had cleaned out the receipts from the past two weeks about two days ago. And NO I did not cheat.

Finally, the real reason I own this purse: STRONG TODDLER TOTER. Ella can sit on the purse while I walk anywhere without breaking my back. Wide nylon shoulder strap distributes her weight very well and her butt can't ruin the purse itself!!!

I am passing this onto the last five followers who signed up as An Apron Addict:

Corline at Over the Top Aprons
Abigial at Abigial and Jake
Amelia at AmeliaBedelia
Joanna at Now with Baby
Mandy at Beads Me

And if you get this far down in the text here's a secret. Today is my birthday. Lucky me. And, yes I am only 28 today...he he he ha ha ha...check my profile for my real age.

I see my spot has been reserved for me.. cuz I'm NUMBER ONE! (shakes hiney in victory)

By the way at least the big butt duffle bag is designer! I still have some class.. not much, but some.:D

Why didn't you say so?


Isn't great being young?

Happy, Happy Birthday! And oh how I love all your aprons! What a fabulous blog, how have I not been here sooner?

Morgan said...

Too funny that your purse doubles as a baby sling chair!

Happy Birthday! I just had one a few days ago. Sounds like we're very close in age!

Morgan said...

yes, please do send that my way. Thanks! My SIL sent me a link that seems to be helpfull too. I'm cloth diapering, so it's not that cost is an issue, but I think it'd be great to get her trained early since she has the strong desire to be like her big sister. I will have to work on those words with her- I hadn't thought about teaching them to her- thanks!

How did you decide to do an apron blog? Very creative! I will have to try to get a picture with my apron and send it in! Do you have any patterns for making aprons that are super cute that you'd recommend?

Happy birthday to you! YAY! I'm 28, too (that's my story!) Love the purse--and what a great way to carry the little ones--wish I'd thought of that when Katie was little! Take good care--celebrate!

Oh Julia
I can't believe I didn't read that it was your birthday! I hope you had a wonderful day and that you stay '28' forever! Cheers, Rosa
