Last School Days and FMM

And so begins the last week of school. Our school system starts after Labor Day (I hope that never changes) and we had "Snowtober"; the major snow storm we had just before Halloween that took power out for nearly a week. The weather has been fairly cool, so it's not too bad that the kids are still in school. Today feels more like October but by Wednesday it'll feel more like mid-July. 
I'm looking forward to having my son home more during the week. My little guy will also be happy to have his big brother around.  He (the oldest) is enrolled in a number of summer camps (first one starts next Monday!). I don't want to hear "I'm bored" all summer-long. 
We're going to work on a summer "bucket list" this week. I'd like to set some plans and have a list to look at for those days when we just dont' know what to do with ourselves.  I'm going to work on a smaller one for just myself and my goals to post later this week. I've really got to get my head out of my you-know-what and get back into the healthier living. It all starts right now! 
This morning's breakfast was a small bowl of cheerios with a bit of milk. And I have a Luna bar lined up for a snack when we head out later to hit the grocery store. First, I have to plan the rest of the day and onto the next couple of days meals. 
Until then though, I'd like to play along with FMM: What's in your bag
If you’ve taken part in FMM then you know the rules. If you’re new, please take a moment to answer this week’s question on your own blog then add your link in the comments section here at: so we can all see your FMM questions and answers. Please invite your blog readers to add their links here too so everyone has to opportunity to be seen. The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers so take a moment to post your own FMM post and comment on a couple of other posts. Now it’s time for this week’s topic!

What’s In Your Bag?

Snap a picture if you can, and tell us about what’s inside your bag today.

  • Wallet
  • eye drops 
  • Dunkin' Donuts straw from the other day when my little guy insisted I take another one
  • a kid's party invitation
  • a parking stub
  • hand creme
  • train
  • small photo album
  • keys -and more keys
  • my little guys wallet
  • matchbox car
  • baggie with coupons
  • baggie with Dagedar (little ball-bearing toy things) son has an obsession with carrying his little toys in baggies when we go out. They always end up in my bag. 
  • Beyblade rip cord (toy)
  • Monsuno (toy)
  • dollar bill
  • 2 lipsticks
  • hand wipes
  • 2 pencils and a pen
  • random receipts and coupons laying around
  • comb
Not shown is my iphone (taking the picture with it) and my ipad which isn't always in there - just when we're going to certain places I may take it a long.   And now it's time to clean it all up. I needed to clean out my bag anyway - it's getting full of toys!  

What's in your bag? 


  1. I can't believe how many of the FMM'ers have Vera Bradley bags!
    I love that your son has his own wallet, too. And those toys are priceless, but I can see why you'd want to clean them out of the purse - they can get kinda heavy, I'm sure.

  2. I love how you carry so much stuff for your little guy!
