Doesn't everyone keep underwear in their purse?

So my long distance bloggy bosom buddy Amanda at Serenity Now tagged me with the fun Purse Tag.

Here she is in all her glory. My $12.00 Walmart find. She's seen better days and will probably soon be replaced with something more colorful, but it kind of falls at the bottom of the priority heap as far as spending money goes.

I'm glad that I got this tag after my daughter dumped the entire contents of my purse out while looking for something. When I put stuff back in, I left the huge pile of receipts, garbage, permission slips, etc. out so I could sort through them. I still managed to compile some extra junk in the past couple of days though!

So starting from the top left, we have: my cute covered contact case that I just had to have, a piece of garbage I stuffed in there during church, a sticky note with a phone number on it (no not a guy's phone number, a mom at school whom I need to call), 2 spools of ribbon, 2 check books, a black hair bow, my blue jeans wallet, a stack of flyers, tax info and cards I picked up from a boutique where Ribbon Blossoms had a booth on Saturday, lipgloss and pens, lotion, an extra pair of clean underwear for Monkey in case of emergency, some cash and a "business tie onsie" from Ribbon Blossoms that I snagged from our booth to give to a friend for a baby present.

What's in your purse?

Next up in the tag: 6 Unimportant Things that Make Me Happy

1. Pink or red toenails. A must have accessory for summer.

2. Cute watches. I only have one, but I wish I had 10!

3. You all know I love shoes!

4. Online TV. I don't have TiVo, so it's nice to be able to catch some of my favorite shows online if I miss an episode!

5. Cute scrapbook paper. It's been a while since I've actually scrapbooked, but I have been enjoying some fabulous other uses for the stuff!

6. When we go to my mom's for dinner or a bbq, and my mom sends home a bunch of leftovers. It's great to have lunch and even sometimes dinner for the kids the next day and not have to cook!

I tag:
Cadance at Our Life in Perfect Cadence
JennyKate at JennyKate's Spot
Carrie at Carrie's Little World
Amanda at Family of Shorts
Amanda at Sturgmom, in General
Small House at In This Small House

I know this tag has been floating around for a while, so if you've already been tagged - sorry!

In other news...I've been released from my church calling as Nursery Leader.

I'm really excited about my new calling. I've been called as the Young Women's Secretary, and Personal Progress Leader. I will be working with a really neat group of ladies (that sounds old, I think they're mostly younger than me!) in the Young Women's Presidency. I really look up to them and look forward to serving with them. I hope I can be the kind of example that will help influence the young women in our ward to try to be young women of virtue and faith. The strength of young people in this world is so vital to building the Kingdom of God. I ache for my children when I think about what they are up against as they grow up in a world filled with evil. I know there is much good in the world as well, and hope to surround my children, as well as the young women in our ward with this goodness. Keep me in your prayers, that I might be able to fulfill and magnify this calling in a way that will be pleasing to my Heavenly Father, and that I may grow and learn and become a better person.

I hope you all enjoyed your long weekend and said a prayer for all those who sacrifice so much for the cause of freedom. And I hope you all have a wonderful week!

Your purse sounds like mine...it's a catch all. I think I could win one of those old game shows, like Let's Make a Deal. You just never know what will come out of there. I'll repost this soon. Thanks for tagging me! I love red finger and toe nails too! :)

Hope you're having a great Tuesday!

Good luck on your new leadership position at church. :)

shortmama said...

Yep I was one of those who had already received this tag but I am all over the purse contents thing! Where on earth did you get the jeans wallet??? I love it and have to buy one immediately!

I will pray for you in your new calling at church. I know that you will do a great job.

Tina said...

Isn't it funny what we find in our purses....kinda scary! LOL

Small House said...

Reading your feelings towards your new church calling made me teary. (not good considering I'm at work. Shhhh)
You will LOVE Young Women's. My favorite place to be. Secretary is so important. Congratulations. I have to say...My daughter is in YW, and she LOVES the secretary. She just seems to relate to her the most.

Fun tag...I'm worried though. I have a messy handbag.

Cassie said...

That's a cute purse & I love the tie onesie!!

Jen @ tatertotsandjello.com said...

Xazmin - you crack me up! I love all of those things. It's so funny. I have so random things like that in mine, but no underwear - at least I don't think so!


Mama Nut said...

Oh man, I have so many receipts stuffed in my purse it is ridiculous! Congrats on the new calling! You will have a great time in YW.

Unknown said...

Girl when I seen the title I was like what!!!!!!! To funny! We are still potty training so i carry a pull up in mine.

Heather said...

I carry undies too! Baby boy boxer briefs to be exact, lol!

Do you guys sell the cute onesies in your etsy shop?

Sugar Boogers & Tantrums said...

Yeah I've seen that tag before. Love the wallet. It's totally cute. I buy walmart purses too. Sometimes they are too cute to resist.

Maridith said...

Your purse is so much cleaner then mine and yes I carry around a pair of underwear (for my daughter)but try explaining that to the supermarket cashier when it falls out!!!

momma said...

Jenny said...

Funny tag! My purse isn't too bad, but it would be funny to see the stuff all laid out at once.

Shawn said...

I so remember the days of extra panties now it's extra tampons!

Best of luck to you in your new position, I know you will be a blessing!

Joy For Your Journey said...

Good luck in your new calling. I love working with the youth. And your calling is particularly great because you can work with all age groups!

Vivienne @ the V Spot said...

I don't have underwear in my purse, but I do have a little pair of socks.
I'm happy for you and your new church group and position.

Lisa @ Pulsipher Page said...

Underware in my purse- I wish. I still have diapers and wipes.

Exciting about your new calling. I loved working with the young women. Our wards secretary made a YW blog for the girls.


That's a super-cute purse that does not look like it was only $12!

Rachelle said...

I carry undies NOW (for my 3 year old). I learned my lesson last Sunday!

Good luck with your new calling.

Sugar Boogers & Tantrums said...

I keep my sons undies in my purse. Just in case!
