Hey There Strangers

Hello, hi. Is there anyone still out there? The last couple of months have been so nuts with baby-time, moving, trying to get settled, redecorating, and just being lazy that I just haven't gotten around to posting on this here blog. Not to mention still not having my own computer set up yet. But, now I find myself at home alone, with a sleeping baby and a computer all to myself. What the? It feels almost naughty.

Suzy tagged me to post a picture of the contents of my purse. Pretty interesting.
Here is my purse:

And here are the contents:

Orange 2008 Planner
Blue iPod Mini
White Zip-up Wallet from Banana Republic, one of my best purchases ever
Eucerin Lotion -- the best lotion ever. And you know me, I'm serious when it comes to lotion
3 pens: 2 Pilot G-2s (my favorite pen) and 1 Pilot Precise V5 Extra Fine (John's fav)
An assortment of bobby pins and barrettes (they should be in the makeup bag, but my purse is "a mess" right now)
Kate Spade Peacock Make-up bag, one of my favorite worldly possessions
Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm -- makes my lips tingly and happy
A wrapped toothpick. I have no idea where this came from. I have no memory of it.
A Paul McCartney Starbucks card (Balance: $0) and many "Frequent Buyer" cards from various places
Orbit Gum
Camera case (usually with the camera in it)

I tag Ruth, Sheena, Kelly, Christen, Morgan and Lisa!

So, tomorrow is Garage Cleaning Day which will hopefully entail getting rid of mass quantities of old appliances and a lot of other junk. Then we can finally finish unpacking (boxes have been piled in the dining room for 2 months now) and I can get on with my life. I have curtains to make for William's room, wood floors to finally clean to my standards and tons of organizing so I feel like I really LIVE here and can be productive and move forward with life. I've been kind of in a rut lately and can't wait to get out of it.

So anyhow, here I am. I hope there's someone still out there. :)

Yay! You're back, I'm soooo happy!
That's a GREAT "tag". I'm a bit nervous to find what's in my purse...and right when I'm in the middle of trying to find a new purse I like. hee hee.

I know you have been so busy, I'm glad to see you blogging again!

I've missed you.

Welcome back, fellow blogger! So, I'm not sure if I'm brave enough to do your tag. Do I have to document the crumbs? The used baby wipe? The three pairs of kids socks? The 20 gift cards that may or may not have a balance on them? I am *not* very proud of my purse. Especially after seeing the incredible "mess" that was in yours!!

*sigh* I'll think about it. =)

Good luck getting that garage cleaned out!! And getting those floors clean.....hehe.

Luckily I just downsized to my much smaller brown purse so I don't have many items or much room for a mess. But maybe I'll do both purses since I still use both of them back and forth.

I think this tag was a great way to get back to the blogging. I'm so glad you're back!

Maybe next weekend you can blog the show. :)

I didn't even know you were moving. Send me your new address. I had a present for William and I didn't get your address before you went to the hospital. I totally forgot and I was cleaning out my garage and found it last week. It is too small now. But it was super cute. I will have to get something bigger. Your purse is so cute and organized!

Welcome back, Cara! I'm very pleased to see your blog up and running, with cherry blossoms no less.

As for your post, I am very impressed with your lovely purse, (I'm totally obsessive about keeping mine organized as well...), and I will be posting mine as soon as I have time for a life again. I think that will be this weekend. :)

Can't wait to see pics of the new place!

Hi Cara. I have been peeking in at your blog every now and again. Your purse is way to clean. Safety pins, crayons, dental floss, easter candy, 1 earring....that's my "bag" Oh and don't forget crumbs?!
