What's In Your Bag? and Daughter Blogs

I was tagged by Jen at Tatertots and Jello to show my bag (purse) and what's inside it. OK, just so you know, I did clean it out yesterday trying to find my cell phone so it looks better than it usually does.
Here is my bag which I love. (I paid $60) I got it while visiting my daughter Wendy Wenderful in Idaho. Check out her blog today as she posted her first article she is writing for her local newspaper! I don't know how she thinks up the great posts she writes for her own blog let alone for the town paper, but she is good!
Looking inside my purse
Inside it is my purse organizer, package of cough drops, 4 cough drop wrappers, one stick of gum, 3 receipts from Costco, Kohl's, and grocery store, a grocery store card application, 2 car wash tickets, a sample packet of Aleve, a yellow rock-where did that come from? and two items I had been looking for: my lipgloss and a prescription for cough medicine with codeine! I ordered this purse organizer before Christmas from The Container Store ($20) to give to my sister but when it came I decided to keep it. It is basically a long strip of material with pockets stitched side by side, one with an opening flap. It fits most any purse because it is flexible and will conform to it. I like it pretty much altho if I were making it I would make at least one pocket wider to fit my little pink notebook where I keep all my important data--phone numbers, yardage needed to make my favorite aprons, etc. When you change purses, you just lift out the organzier and put it into the new one (that is, if you have kept everything in those pockets.) Here is Jen, me, Wenderful, and on the far right is my pregnant daughter. She is experiencing all the pains and inconveniences of her first pregnancy--back pain, tired, swollen feet, swollen legs, and she has been without a bathroom (think toilet) while they remodel the one closest to her bed.
She has to treck 15 stairs four times a night to the main level one.
Check out her new blog Delancey Dish and wish her well. She still has until April 2 to go!
OK Here are the rules for the tag:
____________________________________________________________________ 1. Post a picture of whatever bag you are today - not last weekend when you and your hubby went out to that fabulous restaurant. No cheating!!!
____________________________________________________________________
2. Tell us how much it cost. This is a no-judgment zone -- there will be no ridiculing or eye rolling here. And, if there is a story to go along with how you obtained it, I'd love to hear it.
____________________________________________________________________
3. Now tag some fellow bloggers and link back to this post so people know why you are posting pictures of your bag.

It was a wonderful and I loved getting to know your gorgeous daughters! I wish your daughter (Amber?) well in her pregnancy. That is a lot of stairs!
I read Wendy's recap after the Bachelor each week! I know a guilty pleasure I enjoy. She and my friend Ashley do a great job recapping the show each week. I love your organizer and from the looks of my 'hard to find things' especially my ringing phone...I could use one!

Well, my post will probably be boring but I will give it a shot:)
I haven't heard anything about the lunch but will keep you posted!

Enjoy a great week!

Okay, I have mud on my face again;-)! OPPS!
Amber in not your daughter? Oh, A Big Aha.. moment for my slightly lame brain. Just forget what I wrote and referred too in other posts.... Duh.
Jen, Ashley and Wendy are your beautiful daughters... Amber writes the recaps... Sorry. Where does Amber fit in? Didn't she call you mom?
I think I have it together now on this Monday morning. LOL
They truly are beautiful like their mom.
p.s. I am an Idaho girl:)
