I'm a self confessed purse junkie and I'm not picky. I love all kinds of purses ranging from the incredibly cheap to the outrageously expensive (most of which I do not own by the way). The one thing that has changed about my purse addiction over the years is the size of purse I carry. I've evolved to the "Mom" purse club. We are easy to spot, simply look for the purse that doubles as a diaper bag.

A couple of years ago, I purchased this purse for my Mom. I loved it immediately and thought she would too. When it arrived I was sort of taken back (I ordered it online) at how impractical it was. Sure it was adorable but you couldn't fit much inside. Mostly just a small wallet, lipstick, keys, and phone fit in there.

My Mom kept it for a few weeks before handing it over to me because she had to carry something bigger (and she knew I'd use it if only from time to time). So it's sat in my closet until today. I pulled it out and while I enjoyed carrying it I'm sad to say I'll have to put it back up tomorrow before Jimbo takes me out (on a side note: we are going out, I'm so excited! I'm really looking forward to having a date with my husband, it's been 6 weeks!).

By the way, don't you love that top photo? If you look at my face you can see how challenged I am when it comes to technology. I'm not kidding. Someone get me a Technology for Dummies book asap!
