What’s in Your Handbag? – 100 Day Blog Challenge – Day 38

In My Bag, Baby

Haven’t you ever heard to NEVER ask a woman what’s in her handbag?

Well, since this is one of the topics in this part of the challenge, I guess I’ll have to bite.  I was cringing this all day, because the contents of my bag are…interesting, to say the least.  It’s also said you can learn a lot about a person (ok, woman) by what’s in her bag.

Sooooo, here goes.  Now, these are in no particular order, this is simply based on what I pull out as I list below:

  • Wallet (not telling you what’s in THERE – wasn’t part of the deal)
  • Headphones for my phone
  • My very special pen (that is a blog post in and of itself)
  • Contact Book
  • Hand Sanitizing Wipes (2)
  • Travel-Sized Lotion (5) – someone could ALWAYS use some lotion
  • Prescription Sunglasses
  • SB Brilliance Lip Gloss
  • Lip Balm
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Pens (2) – These aren’t special pens, but pens I MUST have in my bag
  • Gas/Car Wash Receipt
  • Blood Pressure Tracker
  • HS Directory Postcard
  • Birthday Invitation
I can’t believe I took a picture
of the inside of my bag.  I MUST
be crazy!!!

And now, through this process, I have cleaned out my bag and it’s a lot more functional.  I think I may have started cleaning out my bag and not realize it because I had a lot more things in it that what’s listed above.

So, what’s in your bag, baby?

First 30 Days Done, and On to the Next 30 – 100 Day Blog Challenge – Day 31


Well, I am not one who jumps on the bandwagon.  Sometimes, it even takes me a while to get things.  In any case, I recently found a 31 Day Blog Challenge with specific topics for each day, and I thought, “What a cool idea…wish I had seen these when I started.”

Oh well, no time like the present, right?

So…..here goes.

My name is Dionne Tuplin.  I am married with 3 boys and I live in Canada.  I decided to start this blog challenge to help me get better at blogging as well as improve my writing.  It’s also a way for me to channel some of my thoughts that take residence in my head.  This is a great outlet for me, and I am having lots of fun, even on those days when it seems like I’m writing a whole bunch of nothing.  It’s my hope that after these 100 days, not only has my writing improved, but my blogging becomes second nature.  While I may not blog every day, it is my hope that the content I do put out there makes a difference even in one person’s life.

So, that’s a little introduction about who I am, and I hope you’ve been able to learn about me from my first 30 entries.  This next journey looks to be exciting, challenging and everything in between.

Hello, it’s me!!!

Now, the other piece to today’s task was to share a recent photo of me.  While this is not a recent photo, it is one of my favorites, and I am NOT one to be in front of the camera.  So, here I am.  Nice to meet you.  Take care, and have a great day.
