Alrighty, Tara tagged me in this game, knowing I wouldn't be able to resist.
Here are the rules:
1. Post a picture of whatever bag you are (using) today - not last weekend when you and your hubby went out to that fabulous restaurant. No cheating!!! (Yeah, and no fair cleaning it out first to avoid incriminating yourself.)
2. Tell us how much it cost. This is a no-judgment zone -- there will be no ridiculing or eye rolling here. And, if there is a story to go along with how you obtained it, I'd love to hear it.
3. Now tag some fellow bloggers and link back to this post so people know why you are posting pictures of your bag.
Here's the bag. It's Vera Bradley's very lovely version of a diaper bag. It's GIANT. My mother-in-law bought it for me, so it was free to me. I have no idea what she paid for it, so I can't really answer that question. Are you ready for what's inside? Brace yourself. I was afraid there might be something scary in there. I lucked out.
Starting at the top left and working our way around clockwise, I have: three baby toys, one of which plays music when shaken (so I can sometimes be seen turning in circles, much like a dog chasing its tail, trying to figure out where that sound is coming from!), a pair of Neely's pj's (which need to be traded out, because I don't think she wears that size anymore), a package of wipes, two diapers, a pile of dirty burp cloths, a changing pad, a baby sling, yesterday's commissary receipt and grocery list, my checkbook, Neely's ID bracelet from the last cardiologist visit and her LSU ID card, my sunglasses, Neely's headband (for attaching giant Aretha-esque bows), the plastic from a juice box straw, three gum wrappers, a weird felt bookmark from a kids' meal at Chickfila, Valentine gummy bears, an ink pen, hand sanitizer, Tylenol infant drops, a frequent car wash card (only punched once), an air freshener wafer, travel baby powder, Visine, one dollar, an expired Joann's coupon, two Sonic mints, Chapstick, and a tube of Clinique Rose Allure lipstick that I accidentally stole from my mother over Christmas. (Sorry, if you've been looking for that one, Mom.)
Whew! It didn't look like that much when I laid it all out!
I will now bag tag Stephanie, Andrea, Jamie, and Kelly...because you all either have children too or are known to carry gigantenormous purses. :D
