This and That

Well, Becky, here it goes. What you will find in my church bag this week:

  • EFY flier to copy for YW

  • Old notebook for kids to draw in

  • Empty package of mini M&M's

  • Empty package of trail mix

  • Five sheets of scratch paper colored on by kids

  • "Water WOW" doodle book with Disney princesses and water-filled paintbrush

  • Partial package of Pip-Squeak markers that are mostly dried out

  • 24 Crayons

  • YW binder

  • Sketchbook with my YW lesson in it

  • Full-sized Quad

  • Invitation to General Women's Conference

  • Strawberry Shortcake notebook

  • Empty barf bag(you never know when you might need it)

  • Post-it note pad

  • Dirty napkin

  • A rock (?!)

  • Church keys

  • Mini kleenex pack

  • Two pens--make that 3 pens

  • One mechanical pencil

  • Travel-size bottle of Advil

  • "Monumints" from the Statue of Liberty

  • Three Benadryl-D

  • Pack of gum

  • One highlighter

  • Two hairbands

  • Tithing slip receipt

  • Ice Breakers Energy mints (they have caffeine in them! It's taking me forever to use them up. I didn't realize I was buying caffeine mints at the time I bought them. Is it bad to carry them with me at church?)

I thought this would not be fair because I had just emptied out my bag to take to Education Week. The truth is, it is usually much worse. I suppose two weeks is enough to bring it back up to speed as a Mom's catchall.

The thing I love the most about my church bag is it's color. Dave bought it for me for Easter this year. It's to carry my laptop when I travel. I don't travel very often so I use it for church. I don't think I would have picked out that color for myself, but I love it!

Post what's in your church bag, if you dare.

I love the color of your bag too! And I wonder how a rock got in there... hmmm. As for the caffeine mints, I subscribe to the "don't ask, don't tell" policy.

Loving the fall background, by the way. It is giving me hope that the end of the heat is almost here!

Hey Kim, I know I have tons of catching up to do and I will soon I will. I'm at my new job right now and finished my work hours ago but have to stay till ten. Looking at your blog I miss you guys. The kids look so cute on their first days! I cried forever when my girls left, and Trent laughed at me, nice. I'll fill you in on my blog soon. Love you!!!!

From the aerial view, I would not have guessed so many treasures were inside. Yes, it had lots of stuff in it, but mostly I'm impressed with how much useful stuff you had. Mine would be filled mostly with trash and crumbs, therefore I will most likely not post the true contents. Not to mention that your bag is much cuter than mine :)
