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… πŸ™‚ Updated: Coach pictures added at the end of the post… πŸ™‚

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. πŸ™‚ 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… πŸ˜‰

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… πŸ˜‰

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… πŸ˜‰

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… πŸ˜‰ 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. πŸ˜‰

So there you have it! πŸ™‚ Now to figure out who to tag… πŸ™‚ 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! πŸ˜‰

UPDATE: Due to popular demand, here are my Coach pictures… πŸ™‚

I do store it in it’s cloth bag, and judging from the smudges on that, it’s a good thing! πŸ˜‰

Let’s take a look inside:
Empty! Poor Coach bag… πŸ™‚

    And I have outdated pictures of my kids in my wallet too! lol

  4. @I am Harriet: LOL Harriet!! Oh man I should have tagged you so you could show off your new Coach bag – but I know you’re not a big fan of tags, so I thought I’d let it slide…this time! (snicker!)

  10. @nikkicrumpet: LOL Nikki! I was sure tempted to cheat…heh, heh! I’ll have to take a picture of my Coach bag just for you! πŸ˜‰ I was ecstatic to find the ones at Target with the light thingy inside – makes it easier to find stuff in the black hole…well, except when the battery is dead, like now!

  13. Haha I’ll play along but probably can’t get it posted till Monday since my Bday is tomorrow and hubby apparently has something planned for all day. πŸ™‚ I still wanna see the coach purse, though. πŸ™‚

  14. @Kristen Andrews: Thanks, Kristen! πŸ™‚

    @Lazy Housewife: COOL! I’m glad you’re going to play along! πŸ™‚ HAPPY BIRTHDAY (tomorrow)! πŸ™‚ That’s exciting that your hubby has something planned for all day – maybe it’ll make a great blog post for you, too! (grin!)

    Okay, okay – I’ll take pics of my Coach purse tomorrow (you know, when it’s light out) and add it to this post so y’all can see what it looks like…heh, heh!

  15. Hey Stacy – Glad we found each other’s blogs. I love your profile picture, that is too funny! And wow, I am impressed with the purse cake! Seriously, I’m impressed.

  16. I couldn’t do this one if I wanted to since I don’t carry a purse. I just stash my ID, credit card and phone in my pocket..

    The cake turned out great, yum! And the picture of PN is adorable.

  17. @Julie@Cool Mom Guide: LOL! Thanks, Julie – and I’ve posted a comment, thanks for the link, it is a good cause! πŸ™‚

    @Jenni Jiggety: LOL Jenni! It is cool to have a light… now I’m motivated to buy a new battery! (grin!!!)

    @Kate: Awwww, thank you so much, Kate! I love your blog! Thanks so much for the compliments and for stopping by! πŸ™‚

    @Casey: LOL Casey! I’m finding more and more women do that – I wish I could! Although when I do a GNO, I tend to make sure I have pockets to stash my ‘important’ stuff so I don’t have to carry a purse…maybe I should just think of it as GNO all the time…heh, heh! πŸ™‚ Thanks for the compliments and for stopping by! πŸ™‚

  18. Hi Stacy!

    Love the bag and explanation! You could still post a picture of your beloved Coach bag if you wanted πŸ™‚

    Your fondant cake looks awesome πŸ™‚ Katie’s b-day is tomorrow, but I don’t dare give it a try–knowing me, I’d end up with a re-do on my hands, or running to the store in the early hours for replacement! Love her cake–pretty Husky colors, though

    (Admittedly though, I am a Coug–Go Cougs!)

  19. @Chris: Thanks so much, Chris! πŸ™‚

    @Nicole: LOL Nicole! OK, I’ve updated the post and added the Coach pictures… πŸ™‚

    Happy Birthday to Katie (tomorrow)! πŸ™‚ I know what you mean – I was really close to just pitching the whole thing and buying a cake at the store, but then decided to keep trying until I got it right…hence the reason I didn’t get to bed until 4:00 a.m….and why I didn’t do that for subsequent birthdays! LOL!!

    Oh, that’s funny that it’s the Husky’s team colors – I didn’t even think about that when I did it, I was copying the colors of the purse invitations I had gotten – too funny!! My BIL is a HUGE Cougar fan because he graduated from WSU – I wasn’t a fan of either, really, but I took great pleasure in annoying him with Husky’s stuff…like buying a Husky’s outfit for my nephew when he was an infant…heh, heh! πŸ™‚

  20. Empty or not, as least you have one! Thanks for the tag and I will be playing along. (And I’m a huge fan of Target bags too.)

  21. @blueviolet: LOL! You are so right about that! πŸ™‚ Target does have unique and cool bags…I’m always spending way too much time in that section when I go…(grin!)

    @Kat: Thanks, Kat! I’m always on the lookout for good ones, too – sometimes I luck out, and sometimes I ‘settle’… πŸ˜‰
