"It's Not A Purse, It's A Satchel"

....quote via The Hangover. if you haven't seen this movie you are really missing out.

I am overly excited that it is finally Friday!! I had a BUSY {but good} week at work and it felt like Friday was never going to come. I know I've mentioned this about 5391 times but I can't wait to pick Natasha up from the airport tomorrow!!! It's going to be wonderful to see that cute face of hers :)

I will probably be MIA from Blogger for a while because I want to spend as much time as possible with her while I can since she is only staying until Weds! girl time..girl time..girl time!!

It seems like lately the "cool thing" to do on Blogger is to share what you carry inside your purse everyday aka "It's In The Bag!" as Jess would put it...and also the ever so popular Vlogs!!! Sorry to get your hopes up (I know you are just dying to hear my boring awesome voice), but I won't be posting a Vlog today even though I have REALLY enjoyed watching some of yours!! My flip is currently being charged for the weekend festivities and I have been too busy to record it but maybe I will do it soon because I really like the idea!

You will, however, get to see what's inside MY bag! Mine is in fact a purse and NOT a satchel, but I just love when Alan says that in the Hangover so I had to use it as the title for today :) I know you are jumping with joy over this! haha I really am not too creative with what I carry in my purse everyday but it IS my lifeline to the world so thought I would share anyways...

Here are a lot of my goods...sorry for the bad picture quality but these are taken with my phone...

Let's see here. Starting from the back...

I've got my Coach wallet that at the moment is busting at the seams with so much money receipts..I hate carrying receipts! must clean that out soon.

Then I've got my Ray Ban aviator sunglasses which are essential. Even though it's gloomy here lately in Ohio, you can never be too prepared for the sun to show it's face.

iTouch. can't leave home without this guy. He goes with me everywhere...to the gym, to work, etc.

Moving along....yes, that is a childs soccer ball pen you see. What in the world is this doing in my purse? I never knew I had it in my purse until now. I'm not even sure where I got it. Hmmm...whatever, it's kinda fun..it can stay.

Then I've got my Vera coin purse and check book cover. typical everyday purse items..

2 packs of gum... 1 regular mint pack and 1 pack of the Extra Dessert gum for when I am out and about and am about to indulge in some unnecessary calories that would just go straight to my hips. warning: these obviously don't work all the time..but they help.

Crest Whitestrips. I don't normally carry these in my purse..but I found them under Billy's sink (double vanities in our bathroom = lifesaver) and figured I would steal some. Ya never know when you have 30 minutes to spare and want to put these babies on.

Now for the lip gloss/chapstick...

This may look like a lot to be carrying around in 1 purse but it seems like whenever I actually really need them on the weekends I CAN'T FIND ANY OF THEM!!! Anybody else have this problem?!
Maybe I need a cute little bag to put all of them so I can find them easier and not have to carry this many...

Usually, I have my camera in my purse too but it's at home charging! My keys are also not pictured but obviously they are always in there. I'm known to randomly bust out an apple or Fiber 1 bar as well when I'm out with friends for a little snack..hey..don't judge, I love my food.

Now for the purse!

This is my favorite Coach purse I own. I love love love it. Billy got it for me after some serious convincing on my part... ;)

It's the perfect size for me and goes with everything. I can't carry small bags and this has a bunch of room but isn't too bulky.

The best part is the purty inside...my favorite Tiffany Blue color...

Sorry if I don't carry that many interesting things in my purse but that's me!




  1. Love that purse! I also have a collection of chapstick / lipgloss floating around the bottom of my purse.

  2. love the inside of your purse too--so pretty! :) have fun this weekend! :)

  3. I LOVE The Hangover...You're SOOOO right...Anyone who has not seen that movie is missing out BIG TIME! I want your wallet it's sooo cute!

  4. I'm so picky about purses...I usually one get one a year...I was on a Burberry kick for the last 3 years, and this summer I got a Banana Republic purse. I thought I'd never see the day that I didn't carry a super expensive purse ha! I really do like your Purse it's been years since I've carried a Coach..but with that one you can't really even tell (bec the logo isn't plastered all over the front which is nice (in my opinion)

  5. I LOVE your pink coin purse! Too cute! :)

  6. I may have to try those desert delights! I have the "everything I eat goes to my hips/ass" problem too! UGH!

  7. Gorgeous purse! I have about 1000 kinds of chapstick/lipgloss in my purse, too!
