Flaunt It Friday

I was invited to participate and I'm game for some fun stuff. So welcome to the first Flaunt It Friday...This week's flaunt: Let the Cat Out of the Bag. Empty your purse, wallet, etc to flaunt just who it is you are.

So. What do the contents of my purse reveal?

1. I work everywhere I go. My pretty pink polka-dotted folder has my current scenes and I edit them when I'm waiting. Anywhere. It also has my "Book I Want To Read/Books I've Read" list in it.

2. I always read, so there's my book. It always changes, but there's always one in my purse.

3. I makes lots of lists. My full sized note-pad, list maker thing which includes meal plans for the week. My grocery list and receipt, separate because it hangs on the fridge and then I grab it when I leave.

4. I'm a germ-a-phobe. Hand sanitizer and lotion because I'm a tad OCD about clean hands.

5. Yes, I'm OCD about my breath, too. Gum and Altoids.

6. Oh yeah. I'm OCD about pens too. And, uhm, I didn't take them all out of the purse. The pink thing is full, there's some laying there on the table, and yes, there are more in my purse.

This is getting uncomfortable. LOL

7. There's more mouth stuff. Halls and lip balm. Did I mention I had OCD tendencies? LOL

8. My wallet, my business card holder. Pretty common. I hope.

9. Pictures from Walmart.

10. My earphone for my cell. The cell is on the charger right now, but its usually in there. The phone is pink. ;)

11. Coupons for free Burger King and a scrap of paper with a phone number on it.

Ok, that was relatively harmless. Except now you know I'm a little freaky.

TheMommyKelly left a nice little comment about my pen hording. This is sure to drive people far, far away from me. I snapped a few pictures around my house. Took me less than five minutes. Are you ready?

Wendy said...

I love that you keep all that in your purse, especially the book, but it is your pen hording problem that kills me!

Were you the kind of girl in school who everyone borrowed pens from?

Michelle Pendergrass said...

Yes. I was. Thank you very much.

And when I waitressed, if someone lost their pen, they came to me. Management even came to me for pens.

Want to know how bad it is? Oh, I can't believe I'm doing this. I'm uploading pictures now.

Lisa said...

And by the way, thank you for playing!

Heather said...

Oh, my friend.
You should start some sort of help an illiterate program with donating pens.
And you're so pretty in pink!

I'd also really like to know how to do the signature thing that you do at the end of your posts!

Wendy said...

That's hilarious! I came back to see the pen collection!! LOL!! I thought I was bad...I have nothing on you:)

Michelle Pendergrass said...

The signature thing, I scanned my signature then cut it and pasted it and created a .jpg with it. :)

Seriously guys, I knew I liked pens, but I honestly, truly didn't know I had THIS many. I called my husband to tell him. He already knew. He said he loves me anyway. Thank God I don't have an issue hording bigger things.

Thanks for visiting my blog!

Nice to meet new bloggers.

Having older (3 and 7) kids is nice, I leave most of my stuff in the car!

I am sure I will be back...adding you to bloglines right now!

And the pen thing is hilarious!! It could be worse!

Kay said...

I love pens, too. But at least you are organized with yours. I think I have places where mine belong, but they always run away and hide!

Tiff said...

LOL I have pens in shoe boxes everywhere!! I never use them . .They are probably dried up.

Candi said... are organized!!

I love the pens in the shoe organizers (is that what those are??).

Amanda said...

Me said...

I totally understand about pens.. :) I'm the same (but don't have that many) :)

Denise said...

Thanks for sharing! I love your purse also! All of these pics are making me want to go purse shopping! And about the pens~ my philosophy is rather have too many than none! I hate not being able to find a pen! :)

I think I have pen envy...
