What's in the bag baby??

So, Brittne had this posted on her bag and since she asked for participation, I decided to join the bandwagon...

The rules are:

1. Take your purse you carried with you today and dump it out, (EVERYTHING)
2. Don't take out things that you are to embarrassed to photograph. The only exceptions are: Feminine Hygiene Products (we all know women carry those), and anything that might have personal info on it that can easily be seen.

Now my purse is definitely not as big as it use to be. Probably because my husband bought me this weekend knowing that I'd been desiring this for, oh, well... forever!!

However as I sit here looking at all of the items before me, I keep hearing my husbands words in my head, "How do you fit that much crap in there?" (with tons of emphasis on crap). Yet he never complains when I have something crammed in there that becomes necessary at some random moment.

Well... I guess I'll start showing you all the "crap" in my lovely KU Jayhawk purse :)




Here we see my new favorite wallet that just happens to match my purse!! Okay, you caught me, they were purchased at the same time lol. Next to that is my lovely coupon case from good ol' Wally World. I have to admit that I found it because of Brittne and it was such a deal that I had to snag one of my own.


The next items may be considered out by some but necessary to others. I didn't use to carry Kleenex in my purse, but with the onslaught of snot that I've had to face recently, I've decided it is a necessity whether it is Chris, Chloe or my own nose whose valve won't shut off. As far as the lovely deodorant, I keep it in there for moments when I'm feeling a little not-so-fresh and I can just slip away for a moment and be back smelling and feeling like a million bucks again (okay, maybe not a million but pretty dang close).


Next are your everyday necessities, KEYS! Mine are pretty boring, but I do love how the key that wanted to be in the front was the one who made it very clear that he is government property and not to copy, a bit demanding isn't he!!


Moving right along...

Next are two pictures of items that I have to say are pretty important to me. The first is a picture of a pen, calculator and lysol travel spray. Why are these important, probably because I couldn't imagine grocery shopping without them. My pen checks the items off my list (makes me feel like Santa), my calculator keeps me on budget AND my lovely new friend Lysol cleans the cart off before I touch it. Plus I got it over 50% off for a pack of 4 and in addition to the discount I had a $1.00 coupon (thanks to my coupon caddy) so it ended up costing me $2.38 when it was originally like $6.76. Beside that photo is a picture of my favorite Victoria Secret spray, my chapsticks, my file and my comb. The comb is more for Chloe but it still has a home in my purse. I keep the nail file because my nails are long and I spend my day tapping away on a keyboard so they become unshapely and I HAVE to fix them (its an OCD thang!).



And if you are asking if that is Twizzler chapstick, it is!! My husband has a strange addiction to Twizzlers, preferably Watermelon ones but he doesn't get them often. He picked out the chapstick and I told him it must've been his way of finding a way to kiss me more often haha! Now I taste like something he loves to eat... if I lose a lip you will all know why!!

So... I guess that's it. Nothing too exciting for me. I'm just a plain jane in the world of purses ;)

Cupcakes Everywhere

What an afternoon...

I think if I never see/make another cupcake it will be too soon, oh wait, I am making 48 more mini cupcakes tomorrow night. AHHH!!

It really wasn't that bad. The making of the cupcakes is sooo easy. Its the long drawn out process of laying on the frosting and shakin' on the sprinkles. But I wanted these to be absolute de-li-cious for the boys tomorrow.


The first yummy strawberry set went into the oven at about 3 or so this afternoon. I had procrastinated on making them or else I would've been done by 3 lol.


While that batch was baking I decided to let Chloe have some fun licking the spoon. This is normally an entertaining event as it is, but she made it even funnier today because she licked the spoon while wearing nothing but a pullup and her winter coat... and yes, we were in the house.



This girl is something special. She provides the best comedy I could ever ask for.

Needless to say my cupcakes did finally get done. I actually finished frosting/sprinkling and cramming the last cupcake into the second container about 15 minutes ago. I sure feel like I accomplished something today.




Below is the end result. I hope those boys savor the strawberry yumminess. Ah, who am I kidding. It will go from their mouth to their stomach in less than 5 seconds.

Today has been a good day so far. Chloe and I woke up at about 7am. She ate some breakfast while I cleaned up the kitchen a bit. After that she ran off to play in her kitchen and I proceeded to try and get my bathtub to drain right by loaded it down with Liquid Plumber. It didn't work and I think I may have shed a tear lol. However, since I was already in there I decided to clean the bathroom too. It's not done yet, just need to finish the toilet but mid toilet clean I decided I needed to make a quick run to WalMart to pick up some necessities.

Chloe and I loaded up and jumped in the Taurus. I think I always get myself in trouble at WalMart, I see shiny things and I can't help myself ha ha. Anywho... we got lots of goodies. My favorite was the mini muffin pan that I'm going to use to make Valentine's Day cupcakes for my honey and his shop fully of silly boys.

Needless to say I'm hopping on here to update and then later I'll hopefully have some entertaining pictures to put up of Chloe and cupcakes. Now I have to finish my cleaning lol.

The Journey Begins

So this is my first posting on here. I hadn't even heard of this until Brittne gave me her link today lol. So I guess I'll just start with where things are right now.

I am still reeling that it is February of '09 already. It seems like just the other day we were celebrating Christmas '08 back home in Kansas surrounded by the warmth of those we love. Now we're nearing into Spring, which I am not complaining about, and I am so excited about the smell of fresh grass and flowers lol. I'm pretty simple in that way I suppose. I'm ready to be able to take Chloe to the park everyday or at least be outside chalking up the sidewalk or playing with paints.
I'm just ready for the cold, snow and ice to be sweet history although I am hoping we don't have another Summer full of 100+ days!

Spring football has started up for Chris. They had their first practice/scrimmage last week. I'm not sure when their first game is but I'm hoping it's nice out so we can go watch! I'm hoping to start getting things in order to start going back to school for Nursing (or Radiology). It's just a matter of timing and money which it never seems there are enough of. Well... I'll leave off here for the night. I just wanted to make sure I got at least one blog posted on here lol.

Have a blessed evening.
