Before I show you the inside, I have to admit that this isn't as much as a purse as a large bag, that just might be a overnight bag or even one designed for day trips. But those are the purses that work for me. I need all the room for all our stuff. I got this quilted one from Target and it was on clearance so it's no longer available online so I can't share a link with you to shop from. Okay... you ready? Here is what's inside this gem.
Told you it was embarrassing. If you didn't know I was a Mom, all you'd have to do is peak inside my purse to see that I am totally 100% a Mom, a boy Mom at that. This is a week's worth of "living". I usually clean my purse out on Fridays but if not, it's always before church on Sunday -- gotta make room for my Bible. Here is a run down of what was being housed in my purse last week:
- A wet bag with Connor's wet swim suit (this was used on Friday -- I haven't been walking around town with a wet suit all week!)
- Library reading challenge info along with James's fishing license
- A pair of Connor's shoes
- A note from Macie to James
- My wallet (that alone could be a whole post)
- A slap bracelet from a festival
- Connor's CatBoy mask
- Car phone charger
- Sunglasses holder
- Superman, Batman and Wolverine figurines
- Megan Trainor's newest CD
- An American flag
- Batman Sunglasses
- My favorite Simply Made With Love water bottle
I also have 3 smaller bags - one is a full of snacks for C, another has allergy supplies (think tissues, boogie wipes, hand sanitizer, band-aids) and the stripped one is mine with girly toiletries like a brush, lip-gloss, a mirror, gum, feminine hygiene products, Advil, my Stress Away roller etc.
It's safe to say I am prepared for anything that comes our way. I hate not having something when we need it plus you have to prepared with a little one. I don't like having to stop and pay double, sometimes triple for something at a gas station. I just prepare for every situation known to man (I'm being a bit dramatic here, I know!) and we are good to go.
So while I should be embarrassed, and I am a bit, I can confidently say that I am the girl you wanna have on any road trip, visit the park, or life emergency. What's the most ridiculous thing I would find in your purse right now? I think the slap bracelet is the oddest, I mean, it's been since the late 90's since those were popular.
