Currently...

Unfortunately, this is NOT where the Freeze Family Reunion will be taking place this summer.
We went earlier this week to check out the waves again. The beach was almost completely gone because of the past week of storms we've had, so we sat on a bench.
And looked, from a very safe distance, at the ocean.
My old purse is entirely too...old. It is almost embarrassing to wear as it has torn parts and the main zipper occasionally decides to stop working. So, I've been in hot pursuit of a new cross-body purse. I found a most excellent one when we were in Las Vegas, but I couldn't bring myself to buy it because it was out of my price range. Since then I have yet to find a purse that comes close to the Vegas gem I found. In an attempt to get a purse, I ordered one online from Kohl's (with free shipping and 30% off of course!). It arrived on my doorstep Saturday afternoon. Unfortunately, I returned the purse to Kohl's this morning. The color wasn't what I thought it was and it didn't quite fit everything right. So...it had to go back to Kohl's. The main thing holding me back from returning the purse was this:
It came with an enormous 'Elle' key chain (it was an Elle purse). Elle had been waiting to attach that Elle key chain to herself (or backpack) for school today. When I told her the news that the purse was not meant to be, she was distraught, but was happy to at least get a picture of the key chain. Thanks Elle, for understanding that the purse was not a keeper.

I just made an awesome cross-body leather purse. I will take pics and see if you like it. I actually made 2 and I am going to keep one for myself and I was wondering what to do with the other one...

Rixa---I'm most certainly intrigued. You always make such fabulous things. Send over some pics!

Your last four posts have been about the beach....someone's obsessed...

Let me get this straight . . . you only have ONE purse?!

Jodie said...

Myriah-It's true...I'm obsessed and we go down there a lot cause Bran works there.

And I think I may be one of the few women around with one purse, besides my Mom. She is a zero purser. If I didn't have to carry around diapers etc, I'd probably be a zero purser too. But, then I'd probably lose my wallet. And purses are cool.

I only have one purse. How many does a girl really need? ONE.
