bag raid #4: it takes a village

Get your snoop on ladies! This post is extra special because it's Kristen's bag (of While We're Waiting), my oldest friend. I think we've known each other since 7th grade and become fast friends in 8th grade. Here's her bag (which I love!) and what she had to say...

"I'm thinking balls are to men what purses are to women. It's just a little bag, but we feel naked without it in public." -Carrie Bradshaw, Sex and the City

Perhaps she was on to something... but in my case, it's not the actual purse I'm obsessed with, but what it's in.... which is why I was 100% on board with Morgan's request to snoop around in my bag! Unlike Morgan (who inherited a compulsive-purse-purchasing gene from her fabulous mother) I own three purses (total): the one in this picture, one Morgan actually gave me for my birthday, and one I picked up years ago when I worked at a bridal salon (I only use it when I get all fancied up). My theory is the bigger the better (notice this bag is the equivalent of a diaper bag). Here's what I haul around with me:

1. Crime Scene Bandages (a great find by my mom- the band-aids are actually yellow strips of crime tape, how cool is that?)
2. Sunscreen (read more about my obsession and my sunscreen picks here (
3. A Brewers schedule
4. My glasses (I'm realizing more and more how much I actually need these... so long perfect vision)
5. iPod touch (my 1st Christmas present from Jason)
6. Pink cybershot camera (just in case I need to capture an image for my blog!)
7. Coach wallet (another gift from Morgan- without her, I would have zero accessories)
8. Keys
9. Inhaler (my poor little asthmatic lungs would not be happy with me if I ever forgot this)
10. Mojito gum (I don't just buy a few packs, I buy it by the carton)
11. Sugar (currently a ginormous Blow Pop, but I usually have some sort of candy stashed away in my bag)
12. Advil
13. Lipsmackers Strawberry Kiwi chapstick (it has sparkles- my attempt at being pretty)
14. Hair elastic thingie (I don't even know why I have hair- it's always in a ponytail anyway)
15. BonneBelle Cappuccino lip gloss (it's neutral, and adds nothing to my face but it truly tastes like Starbucks... yummy)
16. My Crackberry (I hate talking on the phone, but I text and check email with zealous fervor)
17. Cottonelle hand wipes (Germs gross me out)
18. Purple pen (I have a weird OCD thing, and I only use purple or pink pens)
19. Pink highlighter
20. Tide to go stick
21. Camera USB cord
22. Polka Dot Composition Notebook (for jotting down random flashes of genius)
23. Starbucks (RED) thermos
24. Aveda Lotion

Thanks Kristen! Glad to see you still use the wallet. ;) xo
