What's in your bag?

What's in your bag? Okay, if any of you know the Imagination Movers, say that again but to the tune of "What's in the fridge? What's in the fridge?" I just can't help myself. When all you listen to is kid songs, that's all you can relate to anymore.  Anyways, since FBFF topics are only running ever other Friday, on the off Fridays, various bloggers will be hosting a visual topic.  Today, Marie Eve of A Pretty Nest is hosting a "What's in Your Bag" post.  Go HERE if you want to get a peek into what other bloggers lug around in their bag. =)
 
This is my Dooney & Bourke bag that I got for my 30th birthday from the Hubs. I use this one more than any other... However, once I get my Coach bag for my 32nd birthday in a few months (hint, hint), I bet that will be my new favorite. =)
 
 

1. Claim Form for daycare
2. Recipe for some yummy looking roasted veggies
3. A button that fell off of a vest I wore a few months ago. It's been hanging around the bottom of my bag ever since.
4. Tampons
5. Wallet w/ a Toy Story sticker, thanks to the Little Guy
6. The bonus I got yesterday! =)
7. Harry Potter ticket stub and 3-D glasses
8. Coupon holder
9. Ear drops for the kids
10. An assortment of gift cards from the boss (they came along with the bonus)
11. Keys
12. Candy stick left over from the Little Missy's birthday party
13. Pen
14. Two rings, a necklace and a flower clip
15. Nivea lip gloss
16. Two pennies
17. Hawaiian Tropic lip balm
18. Mirabella lip liner and gloss
19. Victoria's Secret lip gloss
20. Mary Kay lipstick sample
21. Camera case
I bet you'd never believe all this stuff fit into my bag. I have to admit... I actually threw away some extra trash that was littering the bottom. lol
I wore this to work yesterday and I tried a new tactic. Actually looking right at the camera instead of rolling my eyes or smirking while looking away. And... I don't like that pose so much. But whatever, at least I'm not grimacing or showing you my double chin or anything like that. =)
Dress, Cardi & Shoes: Target
Belt: Thrifted
Necklace & Bracelets: She Hath Done What She Could

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!! Here's hoping for some beautiful weather so we can all go outside and soak up the sunshine!

Your purse probably resembles mine more than anyone's I've seen so far (minus all the receipts and grocery lists piled at the bottom of my purse)!

I like seeing your pretty face at the camera and I LOVE your dress! This is a great color on you :)

Whitney said...

Love it! That's a super cute D&B bag.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that sneakily removed all the gum wrappers and receipts before posting.

I think this pose is great! You've got a beautiful smile and gorgeous bright eyes! Let us see them more! :)

I switch purses almost every day so my purse contents are few and boring. :) I like the straight on pictures. I also like the looking away ones. I always think you're adorable!

What is a daycare claim form? Do you need to fill it out to claim the kids back at the end of the day?? lol! I love this bag and can't wait to see if the Mr. will get you the Coach! You fit a lot of stuff in that bag!

Marie-Eve said...

I'm laughing so much right now from that Imagination Movers reference, I can't stand them anymore ! My two sons want to listen to them over and over and over !!! The biggest hit here is the jungle room !!!

Love that bag and I hope you'll get the coach one you want !

Thanks for playing with us !

I hope you get the new bag for your birthday!! At first, I was suprised by how much you had in there...then I looked at my bag and realized I probably had just as much stuff I drag around on a daily basis!

And who looks fabulous on this Friday?

You do! The color of this dress works on you...and your makeup (now that we can see your face!) ;)

Your pic looks great! I absolutely LOVE that dress!
I would be so embarrassed to take pics of whats in my purse... it's untelling what creatures are lurking in there LOL!
Thanks for the recommendation of Hunger Games. I haven't read those, but I will definitely be checking into them. I'm always on the lookout for a new series!
Have a great weekend!

I love posts like this! Such a great idea - I might just follow you and do the same thing. Seeing what's in peoples bags is so much fun, it's like peeking into their life a little.

Wow, that purse doesn't even look this large... and it contains all THAT? WOW. Then again my Michael Kors bag is also very deceiving - it looks like a little tote when it could probably contain a small nation.

I love that dress on you - you look so pretty!

Peggy said...

Fun to see the "bag"! Your necklace/bracelet set go perfectly with this dress! yea!
