an unexpected gift from my parents.

It is common practice for my mom & I to shop the coach outlet during our trips to colorado.

well, I was pleasantly surprised to hear my parents didn’t break the tradition when they headed west. even more of a surprise: they got me a new bag.

it would be awhile ’til I was formally introduced to this grand gift, so my mom tried to send pictures. one failed attempt after another, we decided to settle on a verbal description. the key words: gold, big enough to fit your laptop.

[I was actually in the market for a new “work appropriate” tote. thanks parents!!!]

I met “it” last week during my iowa visit. and boy was I surprised ….

I love the gold.

I love how spacious it is.

[it can definitely hold my laptop].

the surprise:

mom, why does it have a such a durable shoulder strap and a mysterious satin pad?

oh, no big deal …

the parentals accidentally gifted me a:

coach DIAPER BAG!!!!

NO, I am NOT expecting.

this was purely a misunderstanding of the bag’s purpose.

and the joke of the year.

thank you parents for my first baby gift.

[maybe in the next 10 years we will be able to use it, for its real use].

in the meantime: [J] & I decided the bottle holders will double well as wine/beer holders.

we’re just being resourceful.

I’d hate for such a gorgeous bag to sit & wait around for a baby to come just to see the light of day.

once again, I love it. [and love even more, it provides a great amazing story & laugh].

happy monday all.

[ps: if you really want to make a statement with your designer diaper bag: look at this].
