|My Purple Plastic Purse|
Today, I switched purses. Now guys, I can hear you groaning and checking out already, but bear with me, this is kind of funny and I'll make it quick. This is my old purse, which I love, but someone referred to it as a 'suitcase' the other day. I was a little offended, but when I saw a 'new to me' green purse at a consignment store this weekend, I took it as a sign. I do get tired of hauling this big purple thing around when I'm shopping or doing fun things in the summer. The only reason I need such a big purse is that I spend the majority of my days almost an hour from my house. And I'm a little girl scout, I like to be prepared.

But now that the school year is over, and I will be spending most of my time at home, or out doing things with the family, I decided to ditch some of the extra baggage...sort of.
|All the stuff that was left over after I put the essentials in my new purse|
After I painfully decided what things were essential and would fit in the little green purse, this is what is left over. Ladies, note the Haut Totes zipper pouch with my cosmetics and such. Yes, I discovered I had two entire bottles of Ibuprofen in my purse.
|Pens and pencils that were in my purple purse|
I'm a little embarrassed to show you how many pens and pencils I found in the purple bag. This is after I took out 4 or 5 of my favorites to put in the green bag. Can you tell I'm afraid of being without a writing utensil?

I couldn't quite bring myself to leave all the extra stuff at home. What if I'm at the butterfly gardens and I decide I need a yellow highlighter? What if I'm at Walmart at 2 AM one night in July and the florescent lights give me a headache? (I guess I could just buy some if I was at Walmart). But you get my point...I was afraid of needing some of this. So I put it in my Haut Totes bag, and it will come with me in my little blue van all summer. But I can leave it in the car, and not drag it with me. I feel this was a nice compromise. My right shoulder will thank me later.
I hope you will join me on my blogging journey this summer. I expect somewhere I will miss a day, but I am striving for as close to 100% as possible. I would love it if you were there with me...reading and commenting. Thanks!
