It's a Bag Meme!

I was tagged by super awesome Matter of Fact Mommy (who secretly wishes she lived in Texas, but that's neither here nor there)...

Meme Rules:

1) Post a picture of whatever bag you are carrying as of late. No, you cannot go up to your closet and pull out that cute little purse you used back before you had kids. I want to know what you carried today (or the last time you left the house).

2) I want to know how much it cost:) And this is not to judge, because I’m honestly telling you I was ready to put down some cash; I just got lucky. This is for entertainment purposes only. So spill it. And if there is a story to go along with how you obtained it, I’d love to hear it.

3) Tag some chicks. And link back to this post so people know why the heck you’re showing everyone your diaper bag/non-diaper bag.

Ok, so before I post a picture of the bag I am currently carrying, I would like to explain something. I am not into fashion. Not even a wee little bit. I haven't bought a pair of shoes in over a year, and I've NEVER bought myself a purse. Ever. My mother in law is the complete opposite of me. She is a fashionista that dresses like a hundred times better than me and she is 55 years old. (Sidenote: she totally has the money to dress nice and I don't.) It would be a little embarrassing if I cared. So every Christmas she buys me a new bag. It is either Dooney & Bourke, or my favorite, Coach. Don't hate.

This year, it was a coach hobo shoulder bag:
I love this bag. It is big enough to fit a spare change of clothes in for BB, a spare pull up, a sippy cup, and several monster trucks, not to mention the everyday crap I carry. Here's a list of what's in it now:

Wallet
Checkbook
Camera
Phone
Antibacterial Lotion
Smokes
Nicorette
A prescription for Chantix (kind of ironic isn't it?)
Nasonex for my allergies
A gift certificate for a 1 hour massage (I am sooo using that this week)
A gc for James Avery Jewelers (I'm just too lazy to go to the mall to use it)
Fake Gucci sunglasses (That's what rocks about Houston, you can find fake anything)
Burt's bees lip balm
3 tubes of lip gloss (which is weird because I never wear lip gloss)
A gc to Outback Steakhouse (Like we can ever go to a restaurant that doesn't feature a dancing rodent)
Several unfinished care plans for school

Oooo, I have bag envy!

AND I love James Avery!! My brother lived in Houston while he was going to Med School and he got me started on a charm bracelet with charms from James Avery! How funny is that?

BTW, can't wait to hear how awesome the massage is!
