Vacation Update and My Purse (very creative title)

Our mini vacation in Myrtle Beach was great. Ashley loved staying with her friend Hayden, although going to bed at night was a challenge. First the two of them would start of giggling, and then they would start arguing and someone would end up crying. By this time, it was normally after 10:00pm and they were just so tired.

We had great company, ate out alot, and saw alot of Harleys. Yup, we were there for Biker Week 2007. It was actually not that big of deal as we weren't staying on the strip. It caused a few traffic woes, but other than that, Ray and I have seen worse. What I think is absolutely crazy though? If you are over 21 in South Carolina, you don't have to wear a helmet. It was crazy the amount of people we saw at the border of North and South Carolina stopping to put on or take off their helmets. I can understand just cruising the strip at 20 mph, but at highway speeds?

Anyways, I told Isabel I would do this that has been floating around. That and I have a couple of memes to do this week as well.

Yes, this is my purse. I know it's small, but I really don't have a lot to carry in it. Do notice I still have my ghetto cell phone though. But right behind my purse is what we carry around with us when we have the kids. That backpack has more stuff in it than you want to know...


Yes, that's it. Very important camera, flash drive, wallet, my beloved chicken poop chapstick from SJ, and my favorite lipstick. I really don't know why I carry around that poker chip from Bally's, but I tend to be a very superstitious person, and getting rid of it just feels unlucky. So it stays.

If anyone wants to join in on the purse fun, let me know and I will put a link in.

There's not enough room on a post to see all that is in my monster purse. I really need to downsize.

And we have a backpack instead of a diaper bag too. The better to carry two changes of clothes, diapers, two inhalers with spacers and Tigger's emergency medicine.

I was tagged for this by Kelly M. a while ago and REALLY REALLY need to get on it...

Your purse is cute, the wallet is cute and WHERE is the new cell phone SOMEONE was suppose to get you??? :)

Wow, I try to not carry so much stuff, but I can't help it! Even when I start with a small purse, it always ends up stuffed to the brim! I'm very jealous of your ability to carry your entire house with you :)

Love the purse!

I take it you did not get a new cell phone for Mother's Day?

Manic Mom said...

I am the type who would totally keep a poker chip for luck too!

EC said...

OOH I should totally do the purse thing, it is amazing what I can pull out of that thing!!

Glad you had a great time! And by the way - wicked cute purse!

My purse is way bigger than that....oh lord...but you have such a cute purse.

Jippy said...

I love your purse. I am the same with the back pack and the purse. I also still have the getto cell phone.
I think I am holding out for the cool apple phone but I don't want the first editon so that's not a good plan either. Glad you took a vacation!

You have so littl ein your purse. If I were to take a picture it would have to be of all the stuff bulging out of mine!

Emma in Canada said...

Everyone has such funky purses, I would be ashamed to show mine.

Julie said...

How do you fit even that in your little purse? One day I wil carry a little purse again - once Emily is out of diapers. I tend to use my purse as a diaper bag as well.

Working Mom said...

Cute purse! How do you manage to have such few things in it? I swear mine weighs 20 pounds!

frannie said...

I'm going to have to do that purse thing one of these days!

you really don't carry that much- are you sure you are a girl? :)

Kelly M said...

Cute purse!! I'm so jealous (once again!!) that you were on the beach for biker weekend...I heard all about it when I was there..sounded like fun!! Glad you had a good mini vacation!

I have the same camera case!! SO tiny and small I love it!!

BS said...

Oh, I wish I was young again and could get by with a purse like yours. It's adorable and so fashionable. My wallet probably wouldn't even fit in it! Glad you had a good time at the beach. I would love to see the contents of the backpack !!

Dear amy w. I'm with you on the helmets. In Australia, it's illegal to ride a bike without a helmet, and I'm totally for it. When you look at the number of people who fall off bikes and get head injuries, it's worth looking uncool to save your melon!

Sweet poem and picture for Fun Monday. Your purse is so neat. I am wondering where are all your crinkled receipts stuffed in your purse as you hurry through the grocery aisle. Oh, maybe other people are more cautious. Being neat, I bet you can find what is needed. I am envious.

Rachel said...

I love that purse!!! And, the diaper bag at my house...it's awful. It probably has diapers in it that don't fit anymore. Although, she's been wearing a size 3 for almost a year so maybe not.

Christine said...

Cute purse! You've got all the essentials covered.

There is no law here in AZ either to wear helmets. Makes no sense to me either.

Man, what a cute purse. And yeah, I'm totally embarrassed to even dig through mine, hard to say what's in it. But I'm going to do this, sometime.

Glad you had a great time at the beach!
