I can't remember the last time this happened.
Gabi started back at preschool last week, but I've been using the time to run errands and go to appointments. When I have been at home during preschool time, Gilberto or his cousin, who's crashing on our couch for the time being, have been here.
Being alone is awesome! So quiet, no distractions. And hello computer time!
The first thing I saw when I opened my email was a bag tag from DiPaola Momma over at Chicken Nuggets of Wisdom.
Since I'm all alone, I was able to pull out my camera, take pictures and load them without two little hands trying to "help" me. I do believe this is my fastest meme turn around ever.
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 (DAM!). I want to know what you carried today or the last time you left the house."
Here it is! Please meet my beloved Coach purse. Beloved and definitely showing it. I should probably move on to something that doesn't have pen marks and stains from when Gabi spit Chinese food on it, but I just can't let it go.
Now for the inside.
You can see the tongue depressors that my doctor gave to Gabi to try and keep her entertained during one of my appointments. I forgot I had them in there until I took the picture! Other than that, there's the usual powder/blush/lip gloss, wallet, change purse, head set and tons of To Do lists in the side pocket. This bag is also big enough to hold a change of kids clothes and a water bottle, another reason it is near and dear to my heart.
2) " I want to know how much it cost:) 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."
I am lucky enough to live near a Coach Outlet store. I think I paid $169. But that was back when I had a job and a few gift cards that I'd saved up so I could splurge big. I don't think I'll be spending that kind of money on a purse again anytime soon!
3) "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."

I'm nosy, and I can't wait to see what bag these ladies are toting around!
