My Purse

So I saw a post on another blog that has guest posts about what is in other people's purses and I thought it would be funny to post what in my purse. It's a bit eclectic. And odd. And there are somethings I have no idea why they are in there.

This is my current purse. I love it. I got in on clearance at Kohls almost two years ago. I paid $7 because the purse was no longer in their system and they told me to find the cheapest one in the bin and they would use that price. And I had a gift card, so I actually didn't even have to pay for it. :) About 6 months later, the purses came back in at full price...of $80.00. Yeah, it was awesome. :)

Alright, so here is everything in my purse. I can't believe my purse holds all this stuff. And usually I have a book in there. The only reason it isn't is because I forgot it at home this morning. (I'm reading Catching Fire again.) To make it a little easier to explain everything, I've numbered the items in the picture. Hope that helps. :)

1) My checkbook. Pretty sure I've had it for a couple of years and there are a total of 4 checks used. I don't like writing checks.
2) A tithing slip from last week that I haven't put away.
3) My wallet stuffed full of receipts, notes, and cards (but only one credit card!).
4) My favorite sunglasses. This is probably the 5th or 6th pair I've bought of this style. Yay Target!
5) My keys with my three library cards. It's probably lame that I have three library cards. Oh well. :) Free books are free books.
6) My medications. I'm not a sickly person, but I guess I just ultra prepared? The first tube one is my epi-pen just in case I eat walnuts, pineapple, or get stung by bees/wasps/or fire ants. Thankfully I've never had to use one in the 1.5 years I've had to carry it.  My other meds are just Motrin and Tylenol and a prescription for coldsore meds.
7) My mace (yeah, I totally have some of that), a random battery that I have no idea why I have in there, and a USB drive that I carry some documents on. It's come in handy to have one in my purse.
8) A compact with powder, and a Target receipt.
9) My two favorite oil perfumes from here. They are Very Pink and Love Spell. mmmmm good. They are years old and have lasted a really long time. Love it!!
10) Nail clippers and a cool new penny.
11) This one is a bit weird. 2 pencils, 3 pens, and 3 small notebooks. I have no idea why so many. On top of the notebooks are two hair clips.
12) 3 different papers from recent outings. The first is the Sacrament Meeting Program from last week. I don't know why it's in my purse. The other two are from the CA YSA conference that I went to last weekend. The purple on is a handout from a workshop about emotional inteligence and the second is the program for the weekend.
13) Peppermints and Dove Chocolate. That piece of chocolate is way old, ewww. The peppermints I always have on hand for medicinal purposes. Seriously. I have a gluten intolerance and sometimes I get sick to my stomach. And I don't have time for that and so I suck on peppermint to help calm my stomach down. It seriously really helps with just about any stomach problem! Try it!
14) Cortizone 10, lotion, Anti-frizz hair goo, and eye drops. Having the cortizone 10 has come in so handy. So I always keep it in there.
15) Gum and my boss's business cards (because I don't get my own). I rarely chew gum, but when I want to, I need to have it on hand. :)
16) Again, I rarely use chapstick, but I found multiple tubes in my purse. Wierd. And I have my bluetooth--in order to meet the cell phone "hands-free device" requirements here in California.
So there you have it. I'm a horder. I have tons of stuff in my purse. Half of which I don't even use, but keep it there "just in case." :)

Little Miss Bunny Fu Fu

The other night, we (Me, Cait, Nick, and Rachel) went over to the Fluckiger's for some "family" hanging out time and to get free fabric. I just love them. I'm so glad that our families adopted each other. Their kids were my babies. Now the oldest, Sean, is almost 22! Eek!

And Kevin. Ohmigosh. Don't get me started. I was 15, almost 16, when he was born and he's been my "baby" his whole life. Yeah, he doesn't like that now that he's 13 and almost as tall as me!! Double eek!

I happen to be over earlier last week to try to pick something up and hung out for a couple of minutes and chatted with Kev and Lys. All was well. BUT THEN, THREE HOURS LATER...I stopped by the house to actually pick up the goods and KEVIN SUDDENLY DEVELOPED A MAN VOICE!! Eek! Eek! Eek!

I feel old. And I banned him from ever talking to me again. ha ha ha. My baby. My little adorable baby has a man voice. Sheesh. And I'm not even his mom.

It was funny because Sunday we were hanging out and Michelle actually pointed out that Kevin had a bit of a mustache growing. I hadn't even noticed! But once she pointed it out--it was so obvious that he had a bit of shadow. Cait, of course, teased him about getting into Michelle's makeup. What was weird is that it didn't freak me out much as his man-voice.

I'm so weird.

Ok, so on to some adorable pictures of little miss bunny fu fu.

Nick making Rachel walk on the ceiling. She thought it was so hilarious!

Rachel loved having pictures taken of her. She always got a big grin on her face when the flash would go off. She was so giggliy all night. So freakin' cute!!

It's kinda weird that Rachel has turned so blond since she was born. But I love it.
Rachel really, really loved the camera. She was so excited when I got it out. And those two tiny teeth kill me! So cute!

Tucker (the dog) and Rachel developed a special bond after he decided to make out with her. And she LOVED it! It was hilarious. He hasn't been around babies much, but Rachel loved the attention and he was happy to love on her. So cute. She giggled and tried to pet him whenever he was around.

We had tons of fun hanging out and laughing about Rachel, Tucker, and Kevin's freaky man-voice. I just wish the rest of our family could have been there. :)
