I am in love.

Ok, first off.......am I seriously into 2nd tri. already?!?

Ahhh!! I can't lie, I am pretty happy about this. I cannot believe how quick (and slowly) it came. And a bump check will come with that a little later....

On to the original reason for this post. We got another big purchase. And I finally got it in the mail yesterday and I LOVE IT!!! Even the non-pg ladies at my work were coveting it. I am so excited.


Pretty much ever since I got pregnant, and well...even before that I must admit, I have been scouring the interwebs looking at baby stuff. I mean come on, who hasn't, we all do it.
Well diaper bags are one of those things that I have looked at frequently, trying to find the perfect one that would become my everything baby holding tool/purse. Because let's face it, I am not carrying purse along with the bag, so it must become both. It must be somewhat gender neutral and it must be somewhat cute.

Well I have had my eye on the Petunia Pickle Bottom bags by Baby Chic for a while but could not bring myself to buy one at full price, there was just no way. Until a couple of weeks ago when I discovered that you could purchase them off the Gap website. And then the whole 30% off Give and Get came along. Hmm.....would Gap let me get the bag at the full 30% off? YES!!!! Yes they would.
And so yesterday in the mail I received this beauty:


I wasn't sure if I would like it as much in person, if I would think it would be big enough etc. but I really like it so far. And I just checked Gap's website and they must be out of this color because it isn't an option anymore!
Also, the only reason I bought this for myself is because this bag wasn't something I thought someone else would buy for me, and it wasn't something we could register for at any of the stores around here. And it was a great deal!

i LOVE LOVE LOVE that bag! is that the boxy backpack?

Anne said...

Katie, yes it is the backpack, but I have no intention of wearing it that way. It comes with an over the shoulder strap and you can take the different straps off with the clips. Also, if you check out their website, they just came out with some amazing new patterns...they are seriously gorgeous. I love the one that looks like a peacock feather pattern, it's amazing.
