what i bought.


i am not a bag lady. now i don’t mean the classic bag lady that you see wandering the streets of your city. (while unfortunate, that is a whole other topic that i wouldn’t dream of touching.) what i mean is i don’t own a lot of purses, nor do i have any desire to. some girls love shoes, some love handbags, i love bodysuits. :-)))

in the past, i have tried to purchase at least one good bag to last me the entire year. that’s right. i wouldn’t switch up my purses to match my outfits. whatever i was wearing that day, my annual bag would be there to complete the look. if it did clash, then i went sans purse. i’m not completely hopeless, after all!

this year, my brand of choice was betsey johnson. always flawless and fairly inexpensive, i love the unique and feminine designs that adorn her bags. where did i go for the best price? ebay, of course!

i think that this little beauty will do for the next year. :-)


what are your favorite handbag brands, readers?

    I was surprised when you were carrying a new bag! You finally retired that ratty old one! My favorite go to is my black oversized studded Betsey Jphnson. Remember ‘We all love BJ’. :))))))

  • Man, did Remy and I have a standoff this morning. All because she didn’t want to wear socks with her boots. She threw a massive tantrum, and I yelled at her. Afterwards, we went for our walk and everything was back to normal. That is, aside from her puffy eyes and tear-stained face. My poor girl. Parenting can be so hard sometimes. Thank goodness for children being so resilient. 
That disaster behind me is nearly gone. We’re currently installing the last of our kitchen shelves, and our new sink arrived this morning. I’m excited to have a less cluttered spare room!
Have a wonderful week, everyone. This room has not yet been touched by us. It is our master bedroom. Everything about it (aside from our furniture) is exactly the same as when we purchased our home. I think that if we do list in the near future, it will be the only room in our house that we did not renovate. Part of me wants to stay just to finish it. A small part.
