Writer's Workshop ~ My Purse Speaks Volumes

LOOK! It's my purse! Figured out how to add pictures to my blog! (After I posted this blog of course but stil YAY!) GO ME! (In the background there is my current tote bag. In it is just sunscreen, Tx Rangers tickets from April 3, & the letter that came with the tickets and info bout GS Day at the Ballpark)

5.) What do the contents of your handbag/purse “say” about you?

Here I sit looking at my lovely new purse I just bought yesterday. (No Worries it was on sale. Orig $38 Sale $19.99) My new had to get it purse is Turquoise. It's of medium size, I guess. It's a bit bigger than my Dooney & Burke (hubby found that one at Pawn Shop for $40, yes it's real) fits right under my arm pit (I'm sure it has actual description but don't get me lying to you bout what it is) purse. It's kinda fitted at the top and has daisy type flower on it. 

For weeks, I've been meaning to switch to my Orchid Kathy Van Zeeland Shopper Bag (I think that's what it's called. Found it few years ago at Ross for $50). I was thinking , it's spring. Summers not far off. Really I should change purses. This one is being so used and abused with what I stuff in it. But it fits in my tote bag I carry some days when out and about on errands (especially if errands involve kids as tag a longs). 

When I saw it yesterday I new the purse had to be mine. It had me written all over it. So what's in it? Let's find out together. I'll tell  you along the way what I think each item says about me.

Cell Phone - Probably dead since I forgot to take it out and put on charger over night. Further inspection does indeed show it is dead. It's a smart phone w/a forgetful owner.

Dept Store Receipt - From yesterdays shopping adventure. Nice to know I put it in safe place.

Wallet - Matches the above mentioned arm pit purse. Maybe I should shop for one that matches my new bag. No money in it, only coins and various other things.

Zip Loc Sandwich Bags - HUH? Oh yeah, this held Sean and Bridgette's scout patches that needed to be sewed onto his shirt and her vest. Only safe way to store them and get them to the tailor.

DL Renewal w/Eye Dr Note (states I don't need corrective lenses as they wouldn't help) - Should really put that away with important papers. Received new DL in mail last wk, this paper really not needed in purse any more.

Small Brown Notebook w/Colored Circles - Not much jotted down in there, looks like Meggie's been using it for artwork. I may use it for occasinal note taking, like where  I parked my car.

Sunglasses - Oakleys Breast Cancer Awareness hubby gave me 2 Christmases ago

$50 iTunes Gift Card - So that's where I put it. I do so like my music and the means to get it.

2 Year Planner Calendar - Just in case ph gives out. Mini Back Up to Home Wall Calendar. Gotta keep up w/all our appts. (Has sleeping puppy on it)

Pack of 5 Gum - Solstice Flavor. For those times when breath needs freshening or kids need some for whatever reason.

Bridgette's Ice Cream Social Ticket - Coming up in May for all GS who register during Early Bird Registration

Tailors Receipt - Already Pd in Advance so wouldn't accidentally spend the money to cover it. Pretty smart, sometimes. ;)

Mini Mag Lite Flashlight - Never know when that will be useful, even if it is just to entertain kids

Tube of Carmax - I hate chapped or dry lips. Also good for sore pierced ears.

Loreal Color Riche Lip Gloss - Color is Soft Wine. Neccessary for looking fresh even while on the go.

Pony Tail Holder - Brown. Never know when I may need an extra or one at all

Tampons and Pantyliners - Ever ready for moment mother nature sneaks up

Various Business Cards - Kids School, Sean's Psychiatrist, Veterinarians Card. Never know when I'll need these numbers, especially if cell is down.

2 Ball Point Pens & A Sharpie - Always prepared to jot things down.

Well, there you have it. The contents of my lovely purse in the order I pulled them out. With an entertaining introduction to my purse.

This was part of Mama Kats Writers Workshop

The Prompts:
1.) The moment I realized I was a grown up.
2.) Based on their personalities, what do you think your children will be when they grow up?
3.) What I lack . . .
4.) A time you covered your tracks and avoided punishment.
5.) What do the contents of your handbag/purse “say” about you?

If you would like to participate please see the link above and also post your link on my comments if you'd like.


  1. Good thing Mama Kat had you write this otherwise that itunes card would never be able to be put to good use! lol

  2. Hi Kate! I know right! Who knows how long that iTunes card would've hid in there.

  3. I love the new purse! The color is perfect for spring :)

  4. Thanks Angela! I attempted to ignore the purse but found myself picking it up again and again. Then I saw that magical sign...SALE!

  5. Would be a shame to not use that iTunes gift card. Hope you didn't put it back in your purse.

  6. Hi, thanks for sharing the contents of your purse! And thanks for visiting, commenting on and subscribing to my blog! Looking forward to reading more of your posts.
    My niece lives in League City, TX. Hubby & I have been to the Dallas/Ft Worth race twice.

  7. At least you found your itunes card:) That's a definite plus!

  8. @Jessica Definitely! HI! You're welcome. Thanks for visiting mine. =)

    @thepsychobabble So true!

    I have since redeemed the iTunes card so if I ose it again it's ok. I really need to put in recycle bin or something. Random thought, I have no clue why but I thought the zip lock bags would get the funny comments. =P
