Day Five: What's In Your Bag Holiday Edition + Friday Favs

Friday, December 9, 2016

Happy Friday, y'all!  I have exactly one more week of school and then I'm off for Christmas break until January 3rd!  December 16th, hurry up and get here!

Today is the fifth day in the It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year link up with Victoria and me, and y'all, it's been so much fun so far!  Today we're sharing What's in Our Bag Holiday Edition....and I'm putting a different spin on it.  Since it's the Christmas season, I'm showing you what I WISH was in my bag this holiday season!  (hint hint Dustin)

It's so much better than me lugging around my Barrington tote (seriously, a fav) and taking pictures of the junk inside and the old wallet that I need to replace.  Like, it's really old #newonebefore2017
Yes, this $1200+ bag is a NEED.  Dustin thinks he needs a really expensive gun each year, so I've decided that I get to match the price of the gun to a new bag.  Sounds pretty fair, right? haha!

 This wallet is something I've wanted since college and I think this Christmas season I'm gong to break down and buy one.  I love that it's something that I can easily take out of my purse and carry as a small clutch into places where I only need money.

We all have our cell phones in our bags and I'm ready for a new case for mine.  I love this case from Scarlet and Gold--a much needed reminder.

My EC planner runs from January to December, so obviously I need to replace mine ASAP.  I love this design and the pastel colors.  It's just so hard to decide on a design because after that I've got to choose my layout.  So. Many. Decisions.

Don't we all carry lipstick in our bags, too?  This YSL lipstick is my absolute favorite and I'm in the market for a new shade.  I love how hydrating this color is and it stays on for hours at a time.  Yes, it's a little pricey for lipstick but it's totally worth it!

And for just a few favorites...
 Last Thursday I picked up cookies for my Bible study girls and there were a few extras so this guy got to have one.  Doesn't he look so excited to have a Santa cookie?  (It's because I rarely have sweets in the house haha #type1diabeticprobs)

And then Dustin surprised me with these magazines last weekend!  I guess he saw the Christmas and decided I needed it :) 

Don't forget to come back Monday and share your favorite holiday recipes!  I'm ready to try a few new recipes and can't wait to find some good ones!

Be sure to link up with us for our next link up days!

December 15th  How do you make Christmas about more than gifts and the craziness associated with the season?


  1. Oh that bag - I NEED it too!!! Maybe one day. :)

  2. Absolutely think that's fair!! I have my neverfull with me practically every day at work! xo, biana -BlovedBoston

  3. Yep, let's vote from your blog readers...totally fair!!! I asked my hubs for an EC planner this year, it will be my first!! Happy festive weekend doll!!

  4. I do dream of a Neverfull. As the wife of a hunter, I agree with your logic whole-heartedly :)

    My friend has the same EC planner, but in the teacher's planner edition. She really loves that cover.

  5. You def need that bag! I love mine. And I surely think it's a fair trade if he gets a new gun! The hobo wallet is great. I need to pull mine back out!

  6. Love that bag! And yes, if Dustin needs the gun you need the bag! Only fair right! I have been so slack with my blog this week, I was going to do the link up and then things go ahead of me! Oh well, I'm reading anyways!

    Oh, I love EC planners but this year I got a MAMBI one from Michaels and I have to say I love it just as much as the EC planner and it is less expensive. There is also a teacher one which my sister loves. Just wanted to let you know :)

  7. I love your selections and think your new gun/new purse idea is brilliant :) I've always wanted a Kate Spade wallet so I'd love for Santa to bring me one. I like your style with a planner, lipstick and new wallet in your new bag. Those are a few of my very favorite things.

  8. Haha totally fair I think!! I've heard great things about those bags.

  9. I'm really struggling with all of the options for the Erin Condren planners!! And wouldn't it be nice to have that bag!! 😀

  10. I sure do love my ECLP! I just got my new one for 2017 and it's so beautiful! I can't wait to start filling it in!

  11. Go for it. My husband is all into guns and ammo too so I agree with how you are thinking, sweetheart!

  12. I'm with you on the husband always needs new toys for the farm, so I think I need a Neverfull under our tree this year too ;)

    xoxo, SS
