SHOW-AND-TELL: What's In Your Purse?

I was at a meeting last night when someone asked me for a pen. "Sure," I said. "I have one in my purse." So I reached in and found... a crayon at best.

Which got me thinking, what's in your purse?  We all have random items, necessary items, and maybe even a few Cheerios lurking at the bottom.  Besides the ubiquitous cell phone and keys, here is what I found in my purse.

Here She Is

Sanitizer, Crayons, and Stickers

4 Hot Wheels and Cars

Three Shades of Shine

Gotta Have Fresh Breath

A Wallet...(Sans Cash)

And OF COURSE, a Little Purple Monster

So, here's a homework assignment for some of my favorite bloggy friends.  

Post on your blog a SHOW-AND-TELL:  What's in Your Purse?

I don't carry a purse for this very reason. My pockets are already full. I just have a wallet on a string so that I don't get overloaded. Your purse is super cute, though.

Burgh Baby's Mom said...

Are you psychic? I'm serious. I have been thinking of doing a post on that exact subject for two reasons:

1. People seem overly impressed that I always manage to catch photos of my kid at the perfect time. If you keep a camera in your purse, amazing things happen.

2. The other day I needed to write the address on a package and had to use a crayon since I didn't have a frackin' pen.

So, even though I don't like assignments, I will absolutely play along. It might take me a minute, but I'll do it.

Burgh Baby's Mom said...

Oh, and are you saying that I am neither classy nor sweet? Ouch!

just jamie said...

@ BB's Mom: No. Of course not. I'm just saying, put it your blog title and you'll get your own category. :) Women always read between the lines, don't they?

@Misty & Chevy: Extra credit for finishing your assignment in such a timely manner.

Misty said...

I will take extra credit any day. Because... as you know..... I can take pictures of my purse, but NOT keep up on my spring cleaning...

katydidnot said...

BoufMom9 said...

I'll try to add this to my weekend post. LOL My purse aka luggage will be pretty scary. (I use it as a diaper bag for the twins)

Mary said...

Oh man! Mine is such a mess! I'll do this one tonight!

OHmommy said...

I will have my post up NEXT week. took pictures and all!!!

Again, great idea!

Jennifer said...

I just found your blog from LaskiGal's blog... love this purse idea... I might borrow it and do this on my blog, if you don't mind. I will link you to the post if that is okay with you?? And can I also add you to my blog roll?? (please)
I look forward to reading more of your blog. :)
