Nicole from Juicy Alligator
tagged me with this cool tag a couple of weeks ago – I’m finally getting around to posting it! I did, however, follow the rules and take a picture of the purse I’m carrying ‘as of late’ – when she tagged me, I had all my stuff in my cool Coach bag, and had planned on taking a picture of that before switching over to my every-day bag when I was heading out to do my bi-monthly grocery shopping. Best laid plans… In my hurry to get the grocery shopping done, I switched bags before taking a picture, so no picture of my cool Coach bag… 🙂 Updated: Coach pictures added at the end of the post… 🙂
In case you are curious, the rules of this tag are as follows:
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.
2) I want to know how much it cost. 🙂 And this is not to judge, 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 1):
2) I bought this at Target for $24.00. I usually shop long and hard for an ‘everyday’ bag. When I bought this one, it still wasn’t quite exactly what I was looking for, but it did have the cool magnetic light on the inside that lights up when you open it:
Of course the battery is dead, and I always forget to buy button cell batteries, so that cool feature is cool no more… 😉
I have a gaggle of bags stashed upstairs – I change them depending on where I’m going…I’ve found that for my ‘everyday’ bag, I’ve had to go larger than ‘normal’ for me, because the Princess Nagger is always having me stash stuff for her in it… 😉
Just for fun I thought I’d also show what picture I currently have in my wallet of the Princess Nagger…She’s just barely 1 year old in this one, I suppose one of these days I should put an updated picture of her in it… 😉
Nicole has also mentioned several times about using fondant for making cakes – I had commented that I had used it before, to make a purse cake for the Princess Nagger’s 3rd birthday, and of course Nicole wanted to see a picture of it… 😉 So, since this is a purse post, why not show it here? Notice the date stamp on the pictures – I took these at almost 3:30 a.m. the day of the Princess Nagger’s party – I had been up all night finishing up the decorations and making the cake – so that it would be a surprise for her when she woke up. 😉
So there you have it! 🙂 Now to figure out who to tag… 🙂 Please don’t feel obligated to play if you don’t like tags, but if you have a cool purse or bag you want to show off, I’m looking forward to seeing it! 😉

UPDATE: Due to popular demand, here are my Coach pictures… 🙂
I do store it in it’s cloth bag, and judging from the smudges on that, it’s a good thing! 😉
Let’s take a look inside:
Empty! Poor Coach bag… 🙂
