“Balls are to men what purses are to women.” - sex and the city

thank you for all the fun/sweet song lyrics in my giveaway post! I'm so excited for it, you all have made it fun! i wish each of you could win. One day if i hit the lottery, i promise!

if you haven't entered, please do!!! seriously, your comments make me smile.

Belen tagged me with something fun: show you the contents of my purse.

it's seriously amazing and embarrassing what i can fit in this thing (and i wonder why i can never find my keys) :


left to right: oil sheets for your face, aviatorish sunglasses, matches, beaded wallet my Momma gave me for my bday, new hankie, winged head band for the bangs i insist on cutting & wonder why they're in my way, chapstick/lipgloss, change purse, old compact mirror, bichon frise monthly calendar to remember bills, pepper spray (from my pappa), warm vanilla sugar lotion (my fave), book i'm reading at the moment (love!), sharpie/pen, coral make-up bag, mints/fireball candies/gum, and my blackberry curve (never without it).

i really love my compact mirror (a garage sale buy) so i had to snap a pic of the inside.


and because i'm nosy, i tag these girls to show me what they keep inside their purses: my M, Danielle, J, Risti, Amy, Erin, & Tillie.


so tomorrow is semi-big for me. I start a new job! it's not the dream job i left behind in Texas, but it's fun and so that makes it exciting. I'm looking forward to a "regular" routine again (which will include gym time) but the past 3 months without an alarm clock was perfect for the insomniac i tend to be- so for that, i'll need your luck!

if i'm away from your blogs in the next few days, this is why. I have to join the world of the employed again. *wink

i'm not allowed to say where, but here's a hint....

& i dream of a wedding dress from them.

Lynchburg, VA is of 1 of 2 main distribution centers for them, housing a 24/7 call center for them.

i think the kind lady who interviewed me was impressed with my knowledge of their beautiful, classy, trendy, line.

wish me luck lovies!!! when you're drinking your morning coffees/teas manana, think of me.

Erin said...

Well, thank goodness I just cleaned out my purse the other day! I won't be too embarrassed to reveal its ingredients now that the various gum wrappers have been emptied into the bin. I'll post tomorrow, shall I?

I know exactly where you'll be working ;~) and I know you will be marvellous at it. Once you get used to the early morning wake-up calls again, that is! (I'll send you lots of good luck wishes over my morning latte, promise...)

Oh, and very good news:
My birthday parcel came today!!!!! It was well worth the wait. Thank you so so much. I love all of it. I have wanted those cards forEVER (you know me well!) and we will be planting your texas bluebonnet seeds this weekend in the sunshine. How wonderful to have a little bit of Texas growing in our garden. I'll think of you every time I see their blooms. And finally, the tea magnet. Perfect! I'll use it to hold up some little kid artwork (and I'll even send you a photo)

Right, off to my preschool meeting.

Good luck tomorrow, sweet friend!

Melissa A. @ Design Delights said...

You have a pretty big purse, all the stuff inside looks very pretty, girlie and fun. Okay, I'm not very good at figuring things out, but it sounds like you are working at some place that has to do with weddings? Am I right? Congratulations on the job. It's nice to have a routine and something to do each day, but it might be kinda hard after being able to sleep in like you have been. Sounds like you need to be stocked up with some coffee. What kind do you drink? Did you try the blogger draft template yet? Get lots of rest tonight. xoxo

You silly woman XD

I'm glad you liked the pup! I'll excuse the comment on the wrong posting! :) lol

I'm so glad you liked the song though - I wondered if you would listen to it or not. My three favorite Mogwai songs are Cody, Ex-Cowboy, and Christmas Steps.

Cody is my favorite though.

I'd love to exchange letters :) I could send one out first? Or you...or....let me know XD

Just about time for my dental appointment...and enough rambling on your blog!

Nice purse by the way!
