~my not-so-little bag of essentials~

I really do hate having to use one.
Guys can be so lucky.
Everything in their pockets and out they go.
Not us, though, right?
A purse for every occasion and outfit...
Well, not me, but most women.
If I can I'll use the same purse for months until I get bored.
And I always carry the same stuff around...doesn't matter how big or small the purse is.
Which brings me to answering the theme for this week's


"10 Things You'll Find in my Purse"

or as I like to call it...

"Really?! You need ALL that stuff in that bag?"

I like to flip the pages, put my finger in one of the pages, and see where I'll land. 
There is always something I learn or enjoy.

This is where I organize all that is Nay, the blogger.  There's another calendar stuffed in there for house stuff and another one for work stuff. 
I love to write...my thoughts, some small thing I'm thankful for, quotes I find...
{thank you, Brooke, for my never-leave-home-without-it gift}
Book to Review
Just received this book with its sequal in the mail last week...pretty good so far.  There is *always* a book in my purse...always.
No money or credit cards in it, but it's pretty, huh? Oh wait, there is money in it.  I'm buying a book tomorrow so I can get it signed by Jodi Picoult!  I'm.Seeing.Her.Tomorrow!
I live in California.  A California girl always has sunglasses.  I love these because 1) I haven't lost them yet, and 2) they only cost $8!
Gum, Mint & Nutty Bar
Stinky breath or hungry...there is always a variety of something along these lines in my purse.
Don't ever need to use them because I'm always with the hubby who carries his.  But, you never know, right?
Lipgloss & Carmex
Funny...you'd think I'm glossing all day long.  The truth is I put some lipgloss or Carmex in the morning and that's it.  I'm very low-maintenance in the make-up department.
Pretty Pouch
I love the discreetness of this pouch - and the colors.  It's where my unmentionables go...you know, the things that you need when Aunt Flo comes to town.

So what's in yours?
Don't forget to head on over to Lena's to link up your 10 Things:)

I'm guilty of having to carry huge bags... but then there's like 4 things in it. Makeup bag, planner, wallet, keys. But I can't stop with my big bag obsession!
