Take a look inside… mah BAG (Blog Challenge Day 8)

Why, hello there. What’s a nice insert-gender-here like you doing in a place like this?

It’s Day 8 of the 31 day blog challenge, which brings us to…

“What’s in your handbag”

Dude, what isn’t in my handbag? I don’t have a handbag, I have a life-support system with a shoulder strap, heavy enough to knock out a gorilla if I swing it hard enough. Don’t ask how I know that.

Don’t take my word for it. A picture, and a no-particular-order list (let me know if I missed anything):


  • make-up bag
  • wallet
  • kobo and case
  • baby dragon notebook (I take my squid notebook if I need something larger)
  • pens
  • kleenex
  • visine
  • stash of band-aids (this one’s My Little Pony)
  • business cards
  • Advil
  • spare earrings
  • sea bands (for car-sickness, mine or my son’s)
  • dental floss
  • wet nap (not a condom)
  • sugar packets
  • spoon and coffee stir stick (because sometimes drive-through people forget)
  • peanut packets (because they always give me too many)
  • cleaning cloth
  • ear buds
  • tire pressure gauge
  • cookies (for hungry child emergencies)
  • hand cream
  • hair elastic
  • lip balms
  • spare meds
  • my phone is usually in there, too, but it was on photo duty when this was taken

I think that’s all of it. Yes, it’s a lot, but now that the kids are both out of diapers, this plus a juice box or two pretty much has me covered when we go out. My husband makes fun of all of my stuff (and the fact that I can pull pretty much anything out of here, like Mary Poppins’ carpet bag), but he’s never complained when I had something he needed!
