purple satchel.

it's the bag you never knew you needed.
i kept coming back to this purple hudson bag from JustFab and finally decided to go for it. it exceeded my expectations of a suede-like bag. the quality is great for its price, the color is vibrant, it's lightweight, and the size is perfect...big enough to fit all the essentials, yet small enough to be considered a purse. i was worried about its versatility, but i've paired it with peach, blue, black, and now green and pink...it just works.

this is another crazy weekend for us. tomorrow, after our usual saturday classes, we're heading to my niece's school fair. this is when i let mini-he eat all the cotton candy he wants before letting him jump to his heart's content in the bounce houses. after that we have my daughter's athletic banquet,
and we finish off with mini-he's [flag football] championship
game on sunday.

what's going on in your neck of the woods?

to finish off last weekend's events, we spent two nights helping our neighbor make pasteles, and let me tell you, it's no easy task! from peeling green bananas, to grinding them, to chopping the meat, assembling them, and cooking them, a lot of work goes into these things. and after all that, i forgot to ask for
one to try! have you tried pasteles?

  13. Beautiful bag ... the color is just perfect. I couldn't have a bag that big because I would, for sure, fill it up in a minute and then be complaining about back pain in a week :)
    I am like that.
    I think my time is never enough but reading your posts makes me think I may be needing not more time but better management of it.
    Have a happy week.
