I'm a big girl now!

Who else is singing the "I'm a big kid now! Pull-Up" song. I'm sorry I know it's about training pants, but the tune is catchy and I happen to be a juvenile on occasion. Deal.

If you're new to the blog, you need to read this post and this post before you read on. 

What can I say? I am a Vera Bradley lover or more affectionately as my sisters and I refer to it: Vera. 

Some girls love LV. Others Prada.

I love Vera (and Old Navy, but that's another post for another day.)

I have tried to walk away many a time, but every time I get remotely irrational and talk crazy close, Vera reels me back in. Talk about good marketing skills.

I say all of this to remind you that I also have successfully passed my first semester of law school.

And well, B wanted to reward me for all my hard work. My momma says he's a keeper.

Obviously I didn't turn him down when he says those magical words.

But I've also wanted another type of bag for a long time other than Vera.

(I know! Y'all can pick your jaws up off the floor now!)

Because well let's face it. I'm on my way to a big girl job. And big girls need to look official and professional and whatnot.

So I did it. I bought a Coach purse.

(I feel like Vera is yelling at me some where in the world right now!!)

But the boy wanted to reward me and I wasn't saying no. I may be crazy, but I'm not stupid. So I started searching the internets to see what I'd find. What I found was that it was astronomical.

Later in the week, I went to lunch with B who works by the mall. We had lunch at Chipotle. (Yes I eat there about once a week. A girl has to get Mexican somehow. Also, if you're from the South think about how sad it is that my good Mexican is Chipotle.) ANYWAY, B mentioned that we should head to the Coach store to look. So I went into the mall thinking that I wouldn't find anything because let's face it designer bags of any kind are expensive. We walked in and of course, the ladies swarmed us like bees on honey welcomed us and I said the classic, "Oh we're just looking."

We wandered around for a bit and I found a section of bags that were pretty good size and made the comment, "The problem is that what I want is just huge and I'm sure that it's going to be so expensive." I looked at the tag and it was under $200. I couldn't believe it. I thought oh I'm sure that's the key-chain price. B picked it up and actually opened up the thing because I was afraid I was going to break it or something.

He said, "No it's within our price range. You should get it."

So I did.

Ain't she perty?
It was a magical moment and I still smell the bag on occasion because it smells so good. I'm in love.

In fact, I was a smitten kitten until I sent a text showing off my new purse to my SIL. And then she said, "So are you done with Vera now?"

And y'all I almost cried because I felt so bad. How could I go against the Vera who has been good to me since college days? The one whose purchase could brighten the darkest days?

I quickly responded, "Heck no! I'm a Vera fan through and through!"

Now a couple of weeks later, I'm starting to come out of my Coach-coma because in true fashion, Vera has reeled me back in...again.

(Let's all pray that B doesn't read this post for quite awhile mmkay?)

I personally have no problem with this turn of events. Remember, I like Vera. I am aware that I have a problem. I admit it freely.

But y'all! 

I need stuff to be a bit more organized in my big girl bag and you-know-who has come out with their summer lines!

I personally prefer this one.

Don't cha just love the clarity of the iPhone camera?
So maybe I'll get lucky and the Easter Bunny aka my momma will see this post and deliver on the big day in a few weeks.

Otherwise, the big JC's life isn't the only thing we're gonna be reflecting on when Easter rolls round.

I kid. I kid.


Happy Tuesday!

I am not normally a huge Coach fan, probably because they are so stinkin' expensive. But her? She's pretty. REALLY pretty.
