list three: things I carry around in my bag



1. wallet. because occasionally, I need to pay for things.

2. black ink pens. because I do not joke around when it comes to black ink pens.

3. burt's bees lip shimmer in nutmeg. because it's the most perfect shade. ever. but also, I'm addicted to lip stuff.

4. car keys. because keys are important.

5. minty chewing gum. because I am a fan of all things refreshing.

6. cameras. because I like to take pictures, lots and lots of pictures. and I need a wide variety of cameras at my disposal to accomplish this.

7. handful of crayons. because as long as there are crayons (and scraps of paper) in my bag, there will always be something for the kids to do. no matter what happens.

8. cel phone. because there are important things to say, all hours of the day.

9. moleskine sketchbook. because you never know when the great ideas will hit. or when the kids will say something brilliant.

(three down, forty-nine to go)

  2. I will make sure to carry crayons around when I am a mom, some day far, far in the future. The sketchbook, however, I may implement right away.

    2. have you tried the Yes to Carrots lip butter?...wonderful, wonderful stuff...i'm a bit addicted to lip stuff myself...
    3. i have stumbled upon the perfect crayon case...empty altoid tins...they hold about 8-10 crayons perfectly...cut some pretty paper to size...attach it with modge podge (a top coat to seal the paper as well) and viola!...a perfect crayon case...we mamas have to be inventive...

  4. I am loving your lists - I think I'll have to copy this one. And that green-and-yellow pouch is charming.

  5. Love the Burt's Bees, although my colour is Fig. I'd love to know what the bag looks like that these items are all nestled in!

  7. I have never seen kids swoop in on a cup full of crayons and get down to business like your kids did at Cup and Saucer. It was like Ava's hand was magnetically attracted to the darn things!
    so good.

  9. Please dont stop posting these! Lists was my 2010 goal and I was so happy when I found out you were doing lists too. Reading your posts gives me ideas and list-spiration (haha! I'm so funny) for my millions of lists!

  10. Lists are already awesome. Lists with images are awesome x100!!

    I always love seeing 'whats in my bag' photos, even though they're all usually the same generic things. I think it's the personal touches that people append to the generic items that interest me (ie. make up pouch from etsy, special pens, etc).

  15. I couldn't agree more about the black ink pens. When I find the one I like I buy a whole box. The finer the better, I say. Nice lists, thanks for sharing.

  16. Wow the contents of your bag are almost identical to mine right down to the Orbit gum and Molesking notebook but minus the crayons! Maybe when I become a mom they'll work there way in there.
