Purse meet Suitcase... Suitcase meet Purse...

Well if you are my cousin you think my purse is a suitcase, however I beg to differ. See I have a BIG purse! I love big purses. There is so much you can do with a big purse! First I can put my lunch in it so I don't have to carry a separate bag, second I can put some bottle drinks in there for when I am shopping or heading to work. I can pretty much carry anything and everything in my purse (probably even a small animal/kid) I am joking about the kid but I probably could! :) So you are probably wondering where I am going with this post, because I kind of am... Over at JennyKate's Spot she was tagged with telling everyone about her purse. And well she tagged anyone that wanted to post about it to do so. So here I am, I tagged myself to tell you about my purse! You excited!?!?! :)

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. I want to know what you carried today or the last time you left the house.

This is my purse.

I did have a different one up until last Saturday but it was getting on my nerves so I switched it back to this purse. I heart this purse. It fits my arm just perfect! :) I can pretty much put anything in it that I need, like when I am taking my Lean Cuisine to work for lunch and my water bottle and of course my snacks like oranges, apples or oatmeal *I think I have fit all of that in my purse at one time :)*

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.

My purse only cost $29.99 at Target. I normally do not spend that much on a purse; I do not think I have ever spent that much on a purse before. I normally wait until it goes on sale or wait until I have a coupon. I really do not like other people buying purses for me because I like to take several in my buggy and "try them on" while walking around the store. Ya know put it on my shoulder, to check the ease of it all! I take purse buying extremely SERIOUS! :)

The story behind this purse I have eyed this purse every time I went on my many shopping trips to Target. A Saturday before I went out of town for work. I looked everywhere for a purse, and I kind of found one I liked but it was a little to much for me, I think it should have been on sale and it wasn't so I passed it up. I shopped for like 3 hours for a purse, went to Gordmans, Khols, JC Penny's, and than finally went back to Target and I fell INLOVE again with this purse. So I bought it! My husband doesn't like it he thinks it looks like a hobo bag! But I heart it!

3) Show me your insides! (I added this)

This is what I currently have in my purse... coupon book, wallet, CC wallet, VS lotion, 2-09 calendars, alieve, medicine, 2 packs of gum, candy, anti bacterial x2, mirror, bills, and little brown carrier...

And the following contest are in the brown little carrier in my purse; aromatherapy headache relief (bath and body), NYC sheer red lipstick, CG Wetslicks AmazeMint (lip gloss), pencil, Neutrogena Moisture Shine Gloss, VS Lip Gloss, Mary Kay lip gloss, Cover Girl Outlast lip stick with shiny gloss, L’Oreal colour juice sheer juicy lip gloss, 2 blue pens, and L’Oreal Infallible Raisin Lip Gloss. Do you see a theme here?

4. Tag some chicks. And link back to this post so people know why the heck you’re showing everyone your purse.

So I am going to do like she did and say
TAG YOUR IT! If you read this consider yourself tagged! Its fun! And it’s an excuse to clean out your purse! HA!

OK, I cannot wait to carry a purse once again... For right now, my "purse" is a diaper bag, and has been for almost 3 years now. :(
