What's in the Bag

My new blog friend at Miller Racing Family tagged me for this cute tag called "What in the Bag." Go check out her blog, it's really cute and if you love NASCAR, she's a perfect fit for you!
Here are the rules for the tag:
1. Post a picture of whatever bag you have today - not last weekend when you and your hubby went out to that fabulous restaurant. No cheating!!!
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:

This is my purse. I just got it a few weeks ago as a belated birthday gift from my mom, so it cost $0 for me. My first Vera Bradley was red and I just love the comfort of these bags. I don't necessarily like all of the patterns but this one is cute because I love the way brown and blues look together.

Here are the goods:
  • My list of 101 things so I can keep track of what I am supposed to be doing and how I'm doing at it.
  • Keys to my house and keys to my office.
  • My wallet. I got it in Destin, Florida at an outlet mall.
  • A can of Bag Balm. I DO NOT travel without this. It's to keep my lips from getting dry. I have a large can I keep at home and I have these little I have downstairs, one in my purse and one I keep at work.
  • Gum.
  • My checkbook that I hardly ever use. Who writes checks anymore?
  • A highlighter (this is an odd item).
  • My cell phone.
  • A Bible, another thing I can't travel without...I'm always trying to learn.
  • A movie ticket stub from going to see He's Just Not That Into You with my mom yesterday. Pretty good movie.
  • Lotion
  • A jar that has 365 ways to feel good. This was a gift given to me today by my good friend Jodie. It was so thoughtful and I can't wait to dive into the jar!
  • My red carrier for all misc stuff like pens, business cards, a mirror, etc.
  • My name tag that I wear at BSF.
  • Cute little notebooks that she sent me. I use them to write down people I need to be praying for.
  • My pen pouch. I usually keep this in my tote but for some reason it's in my purse. I can't travel far without it though. I usually have my tote with me, at work, trips, etc.

So, there you have it...a peek into my world. Now, there are a few I'd like to peek into. Let me know if you play along:

Wow, Kelli! We have a lot of things in common in our bags, especially the organized part of it. Be looking for mine coming soon! Thanks for the sweet compliment and I'm so glad you enjoy coming to visit my blog!

Brittany said...

I will get on this ASAP! My purse can be scary... I am scared to share the contents!

Kimm at Reinvented said...

Thanks for tagging me, my dear, is it cheating to clean out your purse first? I'm thinking there's a LOT of trash in there. My kids treat my purse like the trash can when we're out somewhere!
