Diaper Bag … a.k.a. A Ton of Bricks

So, I have this awesome habit of carrying way too many superfluous items…. a.k.a. “crap” as my husband would categorize it.

I currently carry a GIANT Kate Spade bag as my everyday purse. It’s the “Kingsbury Park” Large Catalina – big enough to feed my addiction of being overly prepared and carrying my entire house with me.

This is my current everyday bag.  It's Massive, and Patent Leather... Perfect Combo.

Naturally, being a handbag whore, I had my eyes set on the diaper bag of my dreams long before ever actually being pregnant. Go figure, my family wasn’t surprised.

I knew I had to have a Kate Spade Stevie Baby Bag. It was a no brainer… and thanks to my mom-in-law who knows my vices all too well, she made it happen and I’m now the proud owner of this polka dotted beauty, complete with matching changing pad.

The Stevie Baby Bag... epic in every way!

My parents then filled the bag with all the fun goodies – two giant accessory pouches and the matching wallet.  Theä and I are two lucky ladies! 🙂

Only problem is that Theä has yet to arrive yet… and the bag is already packed to the brim and heavy as a ton of bricks.  This is undoubtably due to my over zealous nature of needing to have EVERYTHING in my bag/purse.  I know I have especially over prepared because I have NO idea what I’m in for.  I’ve literally equipped my bag so that I’m ready for any situation. 

Looks like I’ll be developing quite the arm and shoulder strength as I will be toting around the Baby Bag and my usual everyday purse.  

Ah… the impending joys (and muscle strength) of motherhood.

 

 

 

Holiday Craziness… OVER.

Whew…

There’s nothing like surviving an incredibly busy holiday season – especially while pregnant.

It’s incredibly obvious that my journaling/blogging/entertaining myself efforts got dropped to the sidelines while we entertained family and friends from out of state (who luckily did not stay at my house – I wouldn’t’ve had the energy to keep up!).

It’s 2014, I’m back, and we’re on our last stretch of Operation Preggo.

As of today I’m 37 weeks pregnant and ready for Miss Theä to arrive.

Updates to come!

Happy New Year!
