What's in your purse?

Jennifer tagged me to take a picture of what's in my purse. No cleaning allowed, just dump and take the picture. And since I had just cleaned it out about a week ago I thought, "Why not? Although it will probably be boring." But to my surprise when I dumped it, I found an ice cream scoop. Yes that's right, an ice cream scoop. Don't you always carry one?

Thank goodness I had cleaned last week or the pile of papers and receipts would have been about 3x's as big and there would have been half eaten crackers, fruit snacks, etc. So as you can see, I carry lotion, Dramamine, keys, wallet, lip balm, band aids, feminine products, coin purse, card carrier, receipts, and paint swatches. Missing but normally there is also Excedrin (my drug of choice), my cell phone, my camera which I was using, and anti-bac gel.


This is from the back pocket of my purse. Blistex, 3 all but empty flavors of gum, an extra camera battery, more gum, and cover up recently added due to my eye brow incident.

By the way, the ice cream scoop was left over from our ice cream party we had at church on Sunday, but I had totally forgotten it was in my purse. It's amazing what can hide in there!

Now, I am tagging Elise (becuase I know she'll do this) and Emily (because she needs to update). :) P.S. I am ALSO tagging Becky!!!

Elena,
I can't believe I stumbled onto your blog page. I even found Julie through your blog as well. How are you and what have you been up to??

Your purse is very interesting :)! I have to know if you carry the Dramamine since the boat trip made you throw up? Or is it sleeping medicine for the children?

Jennifer-Left over from my flights to Hawaii and Boston. (I learned my lesson on the boat!) But could definitly come in handy should I ever need to knock the kiddies out, except its the non-drowsy formula.

Elena your key should count as like 15 items itself!JK. Enough about the eyebrow incident! I am sure the waxer feels horrible! I am just guessing though. JK. It is pretty funny.

What a funny post! I would be WAY too embarrassed to dump out my purse. I think it gets cleaned out an average of 2 times a year!! Not good for sure!!

Elise said...

Ha ha! I love the ice cream scoop. Of course everyone should carry one-- they're just useful to have around.

Yes, I'll do this, too-- maybe even today! :)
