What’s your favorite handbag you’ve ever owned?

Before we go any further, there’s something you should know about me … I’m not much of a purse person. Yes, I have a few handbags, but I don’t carry them often. Seriously, I consider carrying a wallet and phone an inconvenience. I like my hands to be free and all of these “items” wear me down. That’s one reason I never wear pants or shorts without pockets.
As for my favorite handbag, probably the multi-colored Coach bag that Husband bought me many, many moons ago when we were first together. I saw it, said I liked it, and a week later it was mine. He later surprised me on my birthday with another Coach purse and matching wallet. The guy’s always keeping me on my toes.

What is your dream handbag that you lust over?

I don’t *LUST* after this bag. That would be ridiculous. However, I think this bag is absolutely gorgeous. The price, however, is insanely expensive ….. $398. I saw this satchel at the Coach store in Washington, D.C. and the leather was like BUTT-TAHHHH. Husband even placed his big hands on this bag and said, “wow, that’s nice.” When I showed him the price tag, he said, “put that down, now!”


Identify / Describe the daily essentials in your purse or work bag.

My essentials are a wallet and cell phone. I always carry those with me, no matter where I’m going. I admit though, most often they are left in a hidden compartment in my car. However, if I’m going inside a store, I’ll carry a purse. Even more strange, every Sunday morning I carry a massive L.L. Bean original tote bag to church. I know, it’s really weird but here’s the truth: this bag is an essential because it holds EVERYTHING imaginable. Each week, I create media slides for worship and need my laptop in case an emergency arises. I also have my planner, journal and Bible inside. And a water bottle.


What’s in your purse right now?

My purse is empty. My cell phone and wallet are on the table beside me. I’m so weird. I know.



Please don’t be mad about my very disappointing purse contents, or lack thereof. But hey, I have a seriously AWESOME giveaway going on that you should check out.
