A Look Inside

Since I closed up shop on my last blog over three years ago, I feel a bit rusty.  What better way to shake off the dust and re-introduce myself than to spill the contents of my bag out for you.  I'm linking up with Becky today.  Before kids, I loved to carry a different purse almost everyday.  Now two kids later, my purse is usually a pocket of the diaper bag.  However I cannot carry the diaper bag with me to work so here is my current workday/weekday bag.
Simple leather bag

The bag was a gift from my husband because he was tired of looking at my worn out, thread bare purse.  I have no idea where it came from.  Sad fact...for the last few years my husband has been the one shopping for my purses.  I get frustrated when shopping because I cannot find exactly what I want so he will go without me a day or so later and finds basically what I had been wanting. 

Here is the always have minus a few things

1.  My wallet.  I have this thing for 10 years and it is time for a new one but I hate to part with this one.
2.  My office call back roster for emergency situations. (I work in health care).
3.  A cheap pressed powder for those days I need a quick touch up.
4.  Burt's Bees lip balm.  I cannot live without this stuff.
5.  Sheer, tinted lip balm for days when I need to freshen up and don't want heavy color.
6.  A banana.  This is very random item that was there today.  Usually it's crackers.
7.  My calendar.  I would be lost without this.  I use the one on my phone but I like a paper one still.
8.  My name badge for work.
9.  My work keys
10. My personal keys
11.  MK Satin Hands.
12.  Allergy medicine.  This east Texas girl suffers from allergies year round!

*Missing items:  My phone ( I used it to take the pictures), my brush and bands, my contact solution, glasses and lens cleaners, my pens and my pack of mints.

  1. I love it! It's so funny you have a banana up in there and if you love your wallet then keep it! I'm keeping mine until it falls apart! Thanks so much for linking up :) Yay!!!!

  2. The zipper on my wallet broke the day after I got it and I have yet to get a new one! I can't part with mine either haha!
