My Mom Always Told Me I Had A Magnetic Personality.


Hi.


Meet my new purse.





I was going to feature it over in my little "Enjoying" section on my side bar, but I'm not really enjoying it at the moment.





I bought it at TJ Maxx on sale for 30 bucks, it was originally $80. A deal right? That's what I thought too. And I love the color and the look and it just caught my eye and I had to have it.


One day after I bought it, this happened:




One side of the handle broke off. Dang. So I'm thinking I can be crafty can't I? I can figure out a way to fix this. So I drive to JoAnn's fabric in search of a solution.


They got nothin. I can't find anything that looks even similar to the little rusty gold bead lookin thingy. (Yes, that is the technical term. It's science)





I do however come across some extra strong magnets which got me thinking that I could use those as a quick fix until I can figure something else out.





So I stick two magnets inside the purse and one outside to secure the handle back on. It seemed to work pretty well, it's not the prettiest fix in the world but I just tell myself I can walk around with the opposite side facing out and nobody would notice.





So I'm feeling pretty proud of my quick fix and head over to the library to pick up a book. As I'm checking out I look down and notice that two of my magnets were gone and my handle had once again fallen off.


Crap.


So I retrace my steps looking on the floor for the lost magnets while the librarian behind the desk watches me like I was some crazy woman. Which is true, but still he didn't have to make it so obvious. After my thorough search I don't find them anywhere.


Double crap.


So I then drive to Roberts Crafts to see if I can find anything there.


Nothin.


I have a few more errands to run so I spend the next hour or so running to the grocery store and such with this stupid broken purse that I now have to hold in my hand instead of hang on my shoulders.





So I finally get home and the hubster comes to greet me with his usual kiss and hug when he stops and gets this "What the hell is wrong with you?" look on his face.


"What's that on your shirt?" He asks.


"What's what?"


He points to my shirt and I look down to find this:





WHAT THE?


Yep, apparently I was wearing an underwire bra that day and the magnets decided to make it their new home. So I had spent the last hour roaming around town with these two magnets stuck to my shirt!


No wonder that librarian was giving me such strange looks.

That is hilarious!!! I wonder if the librarian did see that on you... too funny!!!

Look how clever you are though coming up with a fix for your purse!

And noticed on the sidebar - the Sudoku book!!! Its the accounting nerd in us - numbers!! I too love doing those daily!

Wehrle said...

Oh Kel you are a a nerd!! I love it! You would think someone would have said something! How funny!!!

Call Me Cate said...

I'm totally not laughing AT you. Nope, totally not.

It is a cute bag but you might want to consider returning it if it's been this much of a nuisance already. It might be a bad karma bag!

Amanda Hopper said...

That is hilarious! You are a lot more resourceful than I am. I would've just handed my purse to the hubster and told him to fixed it! I'm glad you found your magnet! LOL!

blueviolet said...

Your dog is giving you strange looks too!

I say return it to TJ Maxx!

Lindsey said...

HA HA HA!! LOVE IT!!

koopermom said...

HAH! I just busted out laughing and now my coworkers think I'm crazy. Well, they probably already thought that, but now they know for sure!!

Happy Friday!

Lori said...

You are too funny!!! :)

The Red Headed Mama said...

I needed a good laugh today, thanks! :)

Tricia said...

Thanks for putting a smile on my face on this reary rainy Friday! I'm glad you found your magnets!

BeeHappy said...

Hilarious! Happy Friday! Happy Weekend :)

Amy said...

Magnetic boobs...too funny! :)

Mindy, Tyler, and Kids said...

NICE!!! Who would have ever thought, "Why don't I look under my boobs to see if the magnets attached themselves there?!?!"

Kristina P. said...

Haha! I love it!

And that purse is evil, but so cute!

Julia said...

Nice one blondie! ;)

andy said...

oh my goodness, that brings a whole new meaning to the phrase "magnetic personality", or "a magnet for trouble".

i'm sure there's more, but they escape me right now.

andy

p.s. crafty girl.

JosiahsMommy said...

Too funny! I actually thought the magnet looked pretty good with the purse. Perhaps you could use a hot glue gun to keep the magnets on the purse and off of your bra!

foxy said...

Soooooooo funny! I could totally see something like that happening to me...

aforestfrolic said...

That is freakin hilarious!! Cute bag (if it would stay together ;-)

Jamie :)

Annie Harper said...

Oh how I love you.

AND...

I ate more of your cookies.

DAMN YOU.

Mandy said...

LOL I love it!!

Michelle said...

No bother, you can't even tell.

(cough, cough, snort, snort)

LadyStyx said...

*laffin* Looks like something that would happen to me.

I love the nerdy Suduko booklet. I carry one in my purse. You should have seen the looks I got when I whipped that baby out at a computer fair (instead of using a handheld computer one).

survivinglifedaily said...

OMG that is freaking hilarious!! Made me laugh out loud today at boring work!! Thank you for stopping by my site, by the way!

Alivia Stutzman said...

Oh Kel Belle, how I love you! That's the best story I've ever heard! Why do all these funny things happen to you? I miss your face off!
Liv

Marissa said...

Oh man, that is CLASSIC! It reminds me of when I lose a contact and can't find it ANYWHERE, only to find it dried out and stuck to my hair or my shirt later that day. Too funny!

Heath'e' said...

NICE!! ;) your boobies just needed a little attention!

Monica said...

LOL! Oh my goodness, I'm trying to keep myself together because it's the end of the work day on a Friday and I am amusing myself in between real work because I want it to be quittin' time already and now I can't stop laughing. Some people are so lucky to have these situation-comedy lives. I was magnetized! :-)

Monica said...

Oh and did you return the purse? Go get your money back, please!

WhisperingWriter said...

That is so funny!

It's boobie jewelry!

Karin Katherine said...

Oh my goodness. That is hysterical. Like when I was running all over the house like a crazy woman and my son asked, "What is wrong Mommy?" and I snapped, "I am t-r-y-i-n-g to find my cell phone. I cannot talk to you right now." and he said, "Okay, but Mommy you have it in your hand!"

true story.

Stesha said...

Pooba you never cease to amaze me!

Hugs and Mocha,
Stesha

Momma@Live. Laugh. Pull your hair out said...

LOL! Too funny!!!

Pricilla said...

I think you should return the purse. At least you know the magnets work....

Jason, as himself said...

This is the best story I've read all week, hands down!

Debbie said...

You crack me up! That is hysterical.

Amy said...

Freaking hilarious!

Lizz said...

Now that is some funny stuff!!!!!

Mama Mel said...

That is so funny!!! :)

insider53 said...

I needed to laugh and that did the trick, thanks.

Go to the hardware store and look for decorative pop rivets, this might work if you don't want to return it.

Lee said...

Hahahaha, that sounds like something I would do!
Hopefully you can really fix that purse soon.
It's cute, but I hate when crap instantly breaks!

Rocksee said...

Completely a rocksee move.. haha.

klynch said...

OMG too funny!!!

Melissa said...

That is too funny!! I could see that happening to me too!

Paging Doctor Mommy said...

Oh man! That is some of the funniest stuff I have read all day!

Amy B. said...

Good grief, I'm sitting in a seminar not paying attention, and I've just busted out laughing. People are looking at me like I'm crazy. At least I'm not also wearing a magnet.

Always a Southern Girl said...

Too funny. I am getting a great chuckle over the magnets.

Maybe you could just take the purse back? I think I would. But then it is a really cute purse. So maybe not.

Krysten Hartenstein said...

Oh my gosh! Thanks for the awesome story, I'm cracking up!

aditi said...

Oh Ma god!
That was embarrassing for sure, but made hilarious reading material! :P
Hey I am glad I found you, U seem to fall in as much trouble as me! see u around :)

confessionsofacountrygirl said...

It happends to the best of us. I have A LOT of moments like that all the time!

scrappysue said...

that's too funny!!!

The Wife O Riley said...

I am running to the fridge right now to see what I can wear as an accessory! Thanks for the tip.

I took my purse to the shoe repair guy and he fix the one strap and reinforced all the others for like $12. Find the shoe repair guy.

TattooedMinivanMom said...

Must be your magnetic personality.

Lynn said...

When I was pregnant and then subsequently still fat AFTER I had my kids for awhile things like that happened to me almost daily. I would leave the house all free and clear and since I couldn't see around my own equator anything from underwear with static cling, strings, pasta sauce, applesauce, eggs...would end up on my shirt. I would get the "Did you walk around town like that?!" look from my husband almost nightly. Now I'm svelte again and alls good.

My best, Lynn

Suzi said...

Yes, you have a very magnetic personality and I am lucky to have met you!

~Kristen~ said...

OMG that is freakin hilarious!!!

Jen said...

that is hilarious. totally glad it was you and not me. ;)

Lee said...

You are hilarious!! First, I love your fix of the purse! I never would have figured that out, but that they got stuck to your bra!! TOO FUNNY!

joanofalltrades said...

That story was hilarious! And the moral of the story is...you are quite resourceful, magnets have a multi-purpose and underwire is overrated. i recommend the IPEX bra from Victoria's Secret--no underwire but lots of support.

(army)Wife said...

That is hilarious!!

It really is a cute purse! I hope you can up with a more permanent solution to fixing the strap.

Justine said...

OMG, you're KILLING me, girl! KILLING ME! First of all, doofus, how about bringing the damn thing back to TJ Maxx instead of running all over town looking for a quick fix?
Magnets? Are you a weiner, or what? They can't possibly be strong enough to hold the weight of everything in your purse. Idiot. I'm sorry, I just had to say it. Id-i-ot!
But my goodness, the whole calamity was worth it just to know you were walking around with magnets stuck to your boobies. ROFL

Justine :o )

Debbi said...

HAHAh, oh Poob. I'm so glad you posted a pic of you framing your breasteses! It's hot. Esp with the dog looking at you like "what the heck are we taking pictures of your boobs for?".

Cris said...

Kel take your purse to the shoe store they will fix it for you. I think there is still one on 10600 S. and 700 E. by the chocolate store.

Tonya said...

LMAO!

Aunt of 14 said...

OH NO!!!! Hahahaha Im sorry but that is priceless!!!

Megan said...

Are you TRYING to make me spit coffee all over my keyboard? Cuz I just about did! OMGosh! Laughing my ass off!!

Only you, Pooba. Only you!

Synergy Girl said...

That is SOOOOO something that would happen to me!! HAHAHA...that cracks me up big time!! Sigh...thanks for that!
