Welcome to a piece of our sweet journey of life. This blog is about our family life-- my husband, my type 1 diabetic kindergartner, my spunky pre-schooler, my newborn baby girl, and myself! Enjoy!

Show & Tell Tuesday: What's in My Bag

Today I'm linking up with Andrea at Momfessionals for Show and Tell Tuesday.  The theme today is:  What's in Your Bag?

I found a medium size tote bag at Kohl's on super sale a couple months ago, so I snatched it up as my summer bag.  I used to carry a smaller cognac bag, but I was filling it too full too fast.  So I switched over to this tote bag to give myself some extra carry-space.

I love the laser-cut pattern and the bright color.  Coral seems to be popping up in lots of places in my wardrobe and accessories lately!

The bag has a zipper pocket, and two small pockets inside, with a zipper closure up top.

Since the bag is pretty open, I use a small cosmetic bag to hold my keys, wallet, phone charger, and check book.

The size of this bag, and the openness inside makes it a great size for being a mom, and a D-mom! (Mom to a child with Type One Diabetes).  In my bag you'll find:

  • Note cards and prior grocery lists
  • A PAW Patrol tattoo 
  • Target coupons for frappuccinos and greeting cards
  • Expired Kohl's cash (booo!)
  • sunglasses
  • Blood sugar meter and Glucagon (emergency injection if my son's blood sugar gets too low)
In the two small pockets, I carry a pen, my garage door opener, hand sanitzer, chapstick, a mirror/brush combo, and a SPARK packet.  Not pictured are Smarties candies (a quick item to bring up a low blood sugar, and an easy snack for my other toddler to enjoy), and random receipts and appointment reminder cards.  In my zipper pocket, I keep my work badge and a few other necessities. 

So there you have it!  That's what's in my bag!

What's in yours?

Until Next Time, 
Much love, Reba


  1. That is the cutest little bag! Kohls is the best :-)

  2. My girls love Paw Patrol - we haven't had tattoos but we've had lots of bandaids! HA!
