I a blaming Ducky for this one. Stasha said we could. I'm not one to have a closet full of trendy purses from the latest designers...unless you consider Target Clearance a designer (which I actually do.) My purses have a tough job to do so it's the few and the proud. My taste runs toward big enough to shove all my crap it, can be carried on my shoulder and closes completely so I don't dump out it 's entire contentes any more often than I already do. It should be noted that I CLEANED out my purse about four days before making this list.
Here ya go:
1. Leopard print slippers with hot pink insoles
You may have heard here that I don't like to be barefoot. Unless I am IN the swimming pool or shower (and you better not be peeping there)! you will find me sporting some type of footwear. I went to a Super Bowl party this eve and I can never remember which of my friends have no shoes in the house rule. I'd rather be safe than sorry so I always grab a pair from my slipper collection and shove the in my giganto purse.
2. Infared spot lamp for turtles
Dear Pet Smart Employees who saw me careening into the parking lot on two wheels desperately seeking turtle lights as you locked up for the night,
You watched me forlornly crawl away and then got my attention & knocked on my window to see what I needed and you invited me. You had the heat lamp at the counter and rung up by the time I walked in the door! And the way you chased me down in the parking lot because I left my keys on the counter. And just when I didn't think it could get any better You called miss instead of ma'am. You are ROCK STARS! You both deserve a raise. THAT is above & beyond excellent customer service!
3. cell phone charger
This would have come in handy tonight when my car wouldn't start following the Super Bowl Bash...if only I'd bothered to bring my cell phone with me!
I stuck this in my purse on Wednesday evening so I'd remember to take it to the office so I can organize our new space. Ironically enough I haven't been back to the office since.
5. Two checkbooks
And you didn't think people wrote checks anymore? I need back up when I can't find my debit card. It should be noted that one of the checkbooks is for an account in another state that was closed eight months ago. WHAT?? I am sentimental. Not really. I am pretty sure I grabbed it from the top dresser drawer in desperation..never bothering to check whether it was current or not.
6. Safety outlet covers
No I am not hyper vigilant safety mom. My kids are way past the babyproofing stage but part of my job is planning and hosting playgroups for our families twice a month. To the best of my recollection I took these out so we could do music and movement activities.
7. Cupcake wrapper
I have no idea why.
8. name badge
It's from a conference I attended in November which is weird because Big Yankee gifted me my current purse for Christmas.
9. Orange bouncy ball
I have no memory of it's existence much less know why it's in my purse.
10. Seven ink pens and a black sharpie marker
My job involves a fair amount of paperwork at people's homes and I never want to be caught without a pen. My laptop case has about twelve pens.
What's in your purse?
