My Purse. My Life.

While watching Archer at Tae Kwon Do tonight I was quite the object of a little girl's admiration. She loved my "bag of stuff." I gave her a sheet of paper and a pen. We looked at a magazine together. I gave her a mint (they aren't to hot for her and she is four). We played music on my cell phone and I made a little video (since deleted) of her on my camera. Not only does my purse keep me occupied, but it was a source of entertainment for sweet Ivy as well.

Contents include:
  • 2 magazines
  • 1 book (which I had taken out at this time to read during TKD)
  • cute notebook
  • 7 pens (including 2 from the bank and a cool Paris Las Vegas floaty)
  • keys
  • camera
  • cell phone
  • 2 calendars (don't ask)
  • mints and gum
  • 2 lip balms (1 Burts Bees, 1 Avon)
  • mini photo album
  • lotion
  • wallet
  • checkbook
  • receipts - gas, groceries, library)
  • dried mangos
  • 4 AA batteries

Now I don't think that is a lot (although my camera is slightly large). The other day Archer told me I had a lot in my purse for it being so small...I wonder what he considers big...

What's in your purse?


  1. Was the "not hot mint" comment directed at me by chance? ☺

    You certainly do have quite an assortment of goodies in your purse. I bet it's like a carnival when you look inside. It's no wonder Ivy was intrigued.

  2. ohhhh myyyy...you would ask this question when I am carrying the largest purse I have carried in my whole life.
    annnddd....it's a huge mess.

  3. You don't have enough room in your comments for me to list the contents of my purse. Every morning when I pull out my keys (they're on a lanyard so they are easy to pull out), I think "Girlfriend, you REALLY need to clean out your purse!" But I've yet to do it.

    I have lip balms (or lipchap as we now call them after a particularly hilarious episode of "Flavor of Love") EVERYWHERE! I must! It's an addiction!

    I also carry a larger bag sometimes. With camera, notebook, museum schedules and phone numbers and shoes.
    Sorry you asked?

  5. Which purse?
    My shopping purse?
    My work bag?
    My creative tote?
    My just running to the store purse?
