I Like Coach


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!


  1. Got to love a Coach Outlet! Can't wait to play along.

    (Thank GOODNESS for days alone at home! You deserve it. :-))

  2. I love Coach too, and luckily live by an outlet (in fact, I'd venture to say we live by the same outlet!).

    I love being alone too.

    Jamie tagged me for this meme a while back. I love looking in other people's purses. :-)

  3. Nice!!!! I love your Coach too!! hahah
    I love this meme, and I as soon as I have some free time I will do it! Very creative!


  4. OMG! My purse right now is SO SAD. I have my eye on a Kate Spade bag...if money was no object *lol* If I do this meme, you owe me...IDK what yet but I will think of something since I will be embarrassing myself.

  5. Oooooo... I love that purse! I like that it doesn't have the coach logos alllll over the outside. I want your purse, ;).

  6. Congratulations on your alone time. I need some of that. Do I hear spa?

    I love the bag too:-)

  7. (bouncing up and down, and clapping her hands) yes yes yes.. I heart Coach too!! I had the classic black mini back pack for about 7 years (it earned it's price tag)... And i've still got it, couldn't part with it, it was my first "real" bag (meaning it did not come from Target, Claire's or eeewww Walmart).. I let my 9 year old use it, sometimes.. sometimes I just sit in the club chair and pet it like a little kitty.. TMI? ha ha
    loving the schwag from the doc's office too.

  8. Oh I would LOVE to have a coach bag!!

    Im carrying a knock off D&G :)

  9. How fun! I can´t wait to do this! Coming up soon...

  10. Fun post. Glad I just replaced my old beat up purse on Tuesday. The thought of posting my old one makes my cringe.

    I love your coach bag, maybe when no one will color on it or kick mud on it, I can get another one.

  11. Gosh, that's a clean bag! Mine's filled with papers. And more papers. Like a bag lady. lol

  12. When are you coming to Brazil? You should definetely visit me in Salvador-BA! ;)


  13. Alone?? I don't remember what that feels like.

  14. Oh! This would be a fun one to do!

    I LOVE your bag. Last summer, I purchased my first Coach. I am going to treat myself once a the Coach outlet of course! LOL

    Oh, I meant to tell you that I "stole" one of Zan's blog name ideas for my blog's tagline. It grabbed my fancy!! LOL
    Tell her (and you) THANK YOU!

  15. Ooo I love your bag! I don't carry my coach back here in Norway because everyone thinks it is a KNOCK OFF GUESS bag... Ha..

  16. What a cute purse!! I am so close to being able to ditch the diaper bag and finally carry a purse!

    I have one coach purse that I got over 10 years ago that I still pull out to use if I am going out by myself. I think I'll have it forever.

    Enjoy the quiet - only if it is for a little while!

  17. I haven't been alone in my house for over 7 months! I'm jealous!
