Bag Happiness

I just bought a brand-spankin-new GORGEOUS bag to double as my purse and a diaper bag for CC!  I have been wanting a bag for this purpose since about May, when I realized that I hated carrying around a purse plus a diaper bag everywhere we went.  Since CC is almost always with me, it seems reasonable that we could share a bag. 

(Confession: it has been many years since I bought myself a new purse, and I'd been considering it since before CC was born.)

I scraped together my birthday money and some other cash I've been saving, and looked around online yesterday.  After about 30 minutes of browsing purses on various sites, I stumbled on this one:


I'm not much of a shopper, so it's rare that something grabs my attention and makes me want it.  So when an item calls to me, it's usually "the one."  Incidentally, this is also how I found my wedding dress.

Yes, it was a bit of a splurge (this purse, not my wedding dress -- the wedding dress was a relative bargain).  And it's definitely bigger than any purse I've ever had before (oh queen of the tiny purses), but that's probably not a bad thing since I'll be using it as a diaper bag too.

So today, I went and picked it up!  CC is down for her nap, so pardon me while I go remove all the tissue paper, organize my things and the contents of CC's diaper bag into this one, and generally glory in my new bag.  Bliss!

Just beautiful! I'm with you on having a joint purse/diaper bag. There's no other way. You'll find you'll only need the baby essentials for your purse, then you can have another bag in the car with a change of clothes, emergency items, etc. That is def. the way to go! Have fun with your new friend! :)
