Sunday Social and Funny Stuff 7/22

Today's Sunday Social is about purses.  I will not spend more than $40 on a pair of shoes (unless they are sneakers or boots, and even with the boots it's iffy), but I will slap down $100 for a purse without even thinking about it.  

Everyone sees your purse!  I judge others by their purse choice.  (Really, I do.  I'm that horrible.)

Favorite handbag you've ever owned
I wrote an entire post dedicated to my Lucky Brand purse.  Words cannot describe my love for it.
But, I must admit...I'm also loving my D&B purse that I got at the end of April.  

Dream handbag you lust over

After 3+ years of eyeing up this bag, I bought it this week.

$100 off!  Luckily, they only had one color left.  After 24 agonizing hours of deciding whether or not I should buy it, I didn't need a color choice to trip me up.

As I said, I take purses seriously.  Very seriously.
But I had never quite taken the leap and purchased this one.
I even had a replacement purse last year that almost fit the bill.  Almost doesn't count.

{{Buying this was a conflict of interest with my current ideology.  The ideology being that I don't need to shop right now.  (I have a lot of nice clothes I never wear because I never go anywhere.)  So I'm on a bit of a "freeze" in that I'm not going to blow $40 in Target for no reason or spend $50 on a planner (EVER AGAIN) just to make myself feel better about things like deployment.  
So I'm not shopping.  Shopping because of boredom just equals waste.}}

Daily essentials in your purse or work bag
Phone.  Chapstick.  Lip stain.  Wallet, always with my military I.D. in it.  Usually a head band or cute cap if I know I'm going to be outside. 

My work bag is essentially always full of junk.  Paperclips galore.  Pens, pencils, markers, post-its.  Gloves, hats.  Sheets of stickers for the papers that need to be graded.  Snacks, gum, classroom keys.  I NEVER clean it out and it grosses me out to be honest.  In fact, if it wasn't my "lucky bag", I'd get a new one (which I'd spend a lot of money on, no doubt, for it to get just as disgusting).  It's "lucky" because I needed a bag to carry my portfolio in to my job interview.  My husband picked this bag out at JCPenney's 2 years ago, I took it to the interview, and I got the job.  

I should probably throw it in the wash before school starts again

What's in your purse(with pictures)
Wallet.  iPhone.  Old phone (because my iPhone was acting weird last week and I don't enjoy missing calls from my husband).  Sunglasses (that will be ruined soon because I'm too lazy to buy a case for them).  Keys.  Some coupons.  A book.

Carmex.  Bright pink lipstain. Barrettes.  Gym i.d. card.  Colorful pen.  Checkbook.

Sorry I'm so boring.  
I like to think that the outside of the purse is more interesting than the inside.

So.  I'm disappointed to let you know that Kara at All in a Row(e) isn't hosting Sunday Funnies anymore.  Apparently, she got a promotion at work and, I know, her blog is not more important than her job.  Some people...
Just kidding!  That's okay.  She'll be back one of these days..(Congratulations, Kara!)

I'll still be posting some funny stuff on Sundays.  
I enjoy it (and maybe you do too).

 This is a tough one.
People who move slowly bother me. 

You might see this pop up again because it's probably my favorite line ever from The Office..


  1. Hahaha! It's okay, we all judge. Congrats on your lust no more purchase! What a great purse! And, at a great price!

  7. Love that purse! LMFAO - Michael Scott's comment, hilarious! That has GOT to be one of my all time favorite shows! I'm now following :)


  8. I'm horrible when it comes to purses. I didn't even do my Sunday social because I feel like I'm a horrible judge of purse fashion lol. But yours are totally cute. I love your wallet. And I always have at least 3 colorful pens in my purse.

  9. LOVE that you got your dream bag! It's so cute!

    Thanks for linking up!

  10. This post is too funny! Love the Twilight picture!

  11. I used to love D&B purses, just like Melissa, and we talked about them during college often! Now, you won't catch me spending that type of money on a purse. My latest purse is a plain $16 black one from Walmart! I have others, but I prefer my basic black. This reminds me I should switch to my blue purse before summer is out!

  12. Oh boy, I totally am with you on not spending more than $40 for shoes (and boots are iffy for me too!), and I absolutely judge purse choices.

    And I had to go back and read your old post about your bag - freaking loved it. Mary Poppins - hilarious :)

  13. Okay, I love that purse. A lot. And you always make me laugh on Sundays! (Well, more than that but especially Sundays. :)

  14. OMG, that Twilight picture had me ROLLING!

    Hopefully, the Sunday Funnies will be back before too long! Until then, I'm glad I can depend on you for my weekly laughs :D
