I have several items of business that I need to take care of, and one of them will require your help:
1) Robyn left me a comment on an older post asking a question about something she'd like to do, and I emailed her and told her I'd post it today and see if any of you, my 5 loyal readers, would know how to help her... if you do, please leave it in the comments, as she'll be checking back throughout the day. Here's a summary of what Robyn said:
At one time, Robyn had received a little bag which contained things like: candle, safety pin, band aid, tissue, etc. and they each represented something and had corresponding scriptures (i.e. a tissue for wiping away tears). She can't remember all the items the bag contained and thought someone could help her. So ... Can anyone help?2) Next, I have a Mother's Day contest (with a prize!!!) I'll be announcing tomorrow, so come on back for details, ya hear?
3) Finally, I was tagged by both Laura at I'm an Organizing Junkie and Susanne at Living to tell the Story for a "Show Me Your Handbag" Meme. Lucky for both, I got the tags on Friday, and I was leaving early so I couldn't do it until today. Lucky, only because I got a new spring handbag over the weekend and it's all nice and neat, which by the way, I DO try to keep my PURSE (which is what we call it on the East Coast) tidy. So ... if you want to know what my purse looks like and what I keep in it, look below (and please forgive the quality and lighting of these pics because I used my camera phone to shoot them). And ... if you want to know what my purse looked like and what was in it when Hunter was an infant ... well, that's a whole other story, and you need to GO HERE to see that! (Aren't we extremely "curious" people by nature???)
Now -- I tag Momrn2 from My Quiet Corner (because I know she's pretty practical, which makes me curious about what she carries around on a daily basis), Beth from Life with Two Little Vikings(because we're new friends, and I'm nosey like that), and BooMama (because, seriously, WHO DOESN'T want to know what kind of purse she carries, and what she's got in her it!). Now each of you tag three

What's in the back pocket of my purse? My little wrist bag that has my lipsticks, liner, gloss and mirror, and gum; my keys; my day calendar/planner (which is much more clean and, well, "blank" than the one seen in the post I linked above -- I guess you get LESS popular with a toddler!). I carry an "emergency" pacifier in the zipped compartment in the middle.
What's in the front of my purse? My wallet, a pen, and a package of tissues:
And finally, because I KNOW you're burning to know ... where does my cell phone go? Well, right here in the cell phone pocket (see orange arrow)!
