This is Why I am the Employee of the Month.

So this is a fun little tag that Julia so lovingly threw at me, knocking me out cold. Which is why it took me so long to get it done, thanks Julia!

It's a Purse Tag!

Here are the rules:

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. I want to know what you carried today.

2. 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!

3. I want to know how much it costs. And this is not to judge, this is for entertainment purposes only. So spill it. And if there is a story to go along with how you obtained it, I’d love to hear it.

4. Tag some chicks. And link back to this post so people know why the heck you’re showing everyone your diaper bag/non-diaper bag.

So here ya go:

Well since I have no kids, this truly is the purse I carry with me now, however it will probably change next month. You will not find any diapers or mommy secrets in here so don't get too excited.

As you can see, I'm at work taking pictures in my office.


Don't worry coworkers; this is a work assignment I promise! I am just accounting for what is in my bag, you see? Accounting! So I don't feel bad at all.

So as a bean counter lets count how many things are in my purse! 1...2...3...okay I won't give you a counting lesson, it's too hard to explain. I'll just tell ya there are 31 very important, can't live without items in my bag.

You can probably tell what most of the items are but just for fun let me tell ya!

- A grocery list
- A receipt from Banbury Cross Doughnuts (told you I was
- 3 Colones left over from Costa Rica

- A red little card holder where I keep my gift cards and business
cards (hence the scensoring, didn't think it'd be a good
idea to post the name and address of the place I work on the
Internet :)
- A black cover for my phone
- My weekly pill container
- 2 packs of Orbit gum

- Brown snake skin wallet
- Tangerine sour altoids
- Mascara
- 4 lip glosses

- My planner (with a cute picture of me and Logan)
- Black check book
- Tweezers

- Hair elastic
- Tissues
- Midol
- Perfume
- 2 pens (One for the checkbook and one for the planner)

- Contact lense holder and solution
- Travel lotion I stole from a hotel
- Tylenol
- Eye shadow

Blah! So I guess you've all learned that I'm a stinky, stealing, runny nosed, vain druggy with dry skin, dry lips, dry eyes, bad breath, and a sugarholic!

But you all knew that already.

This purse is a Kathy Van Zeeland and I stole it from TJ Maxx which is the only place to get purses. No I didn't really steal it, but it really was a steal for only $30! Normally $100 yay me! I refuse to pay more than $40 for a purse because I go through them like my husband goes through video games.

So now it's your turn, get out your purses and lemme see inside!

Instead of taggin people I will let you decide if you want to do it let me know so I can come check out your purse!

I'll spare you the guilt trip this time!

Oh and thanks kjmamma for this cute award! Undeserved but very much appreciated!

Fun tag!

And I change my purse daily, depending on what I'm wearing. I am a purse whore.

pretty tidy purse there....i am not sure mine would be so tidy. I may join in this weekend!

Suzi said...

Much neater than my purse. Well done. I have been dragging my feet on this too. Must. do. purse. post.

Why is everyone's purse so neat and tidy? Is that how it's supposed to be? Dang it.

Lori said...

Cute purse :)

Amanda Hopper said...

LOL! Done, but mine isn't near as exciting as yours and I'm a mom!

Julia said...

So my first astute observation is that those contents barely seem enough to fill that suitcase you carry around. You must realize of course that I snicker as i type this... Maybe it is just proportionality messing me up. 2nd observation: You foofy and frilly girls need a lot of lipsticks and stuff. I guess I have been "naked" for so long I cant remember. 3rd observation: One snake died in the making of this video.

If you saw my medicine cabinet you would pass out... Then there are the magical elixirs for the kids so don't feel bad about the meds! Modern Medicine rules!

Love this... I love how organized you did it too. Looks like you are prepared... I had to laugh though at your admission of pens & notebooks & you have two different writing utensils for different things... totally understand!!

I'm totally doing this!

misspro312 said...

My purse is boring but it is a Kathy Van Zeeland, so the outside is cool!!

It looks like you have everything you need!!

Outnumbered2to1 said...

Damn! That is the purse! I have been stalking my TJ Maxx for a great purse for the last 18 months and nothing that cute is available.

Love the purse. The picture of you and Logan was really adorable.

The Wife O Riley said...

How organized your purse is!! There is no way I can do this until I clean it out and that may take all weekend.

Thank God there are doors in the work place, Pooba. When I was working, I was a "frequent closer" whenever I had a non-work-related phone call to make or "project" (aka balancing my checkbook) to complete. Glad to know that your work habits are shooting you right to the top of the corporate ladder too.


PS: You got lots o' stuff in your bag, my friend, but I am sure that you always look fabulous!

I have the same pill box!

I should carry tweezers w/ me, there's no better place to tweeze then in the car!

TuTu's Bliss said...

I love the summary. I wanted to join in but even with two kids I don't do purses/ diaper bags. After being forced to carry/haul the world rom diapers to desitin I am on bag strike. ;) But when I start again I hope I find that kind of "steal' WOWZA!!

heathersister said...

Looks like fun. I might do this later in the week, if I can find the time to take and upload pictures.

Rhea said...

I loved seeing the contents of your purse. You have a lot in there, but it's all neatly done and very useful stuff!

Cute purse too.

I love peaking into other people's bags, I mean, lives.

And your baby is adorable. And those dogs are beautiful.

Lyndsay said...

Okay, that's too fun ... but I think I would die of embarassment if I were to photograph the inside of my purse ... and I don't embarass easily, LOL!

nikkicrumpet said...

NO FAIR your purse was way to clean. You should have seen the crap I took out of mine when I did this tag several months ago! And I love Vanzeeland bags...the leather is always soooo soft..and who does get sucked in by those little dangly charms!

LadyStyx said...

I rarely spend more than $15 on my purses (usually ALOT less) because they are forever getting filthy or holes in them. The less expensive they are, the longer they seem to last. I do have one that I've carried for more than 2 years though....didnt cost a penny (a gift from mom). It's the only one I really like because of the strap it has (my shoulders slope a bit so purses generally dont stay on my shoulder where they belong).

Queenie Jeannie said...

I'm so glad you did this too! I'm just nosey enough to want to know what people are carrying around, lol! Your purse is lovely and I love the shade. The purse I got for Christmas came in black (which I got) and a similiar shade of purple. I almost bought the purple one, but practicality won out.

kjamama said...

I LOVE that purse...and you're welcome for the's very much deserved. :)
