out with the old....

...in with the NEW!

If any of you have seen me in the last 6 or so years... you've probably seen me toting around a green Vera Bradley backpack.

I LOVE this thing.

My sister got it for me when I worked at Hallmark... (with my nice little discount).

I use this bag every single day, year round, all seasons... everywhere. A few times here and there a new sort of bag/purse, or a wannabe VB backpack, would try to move in... but I always came right back to the green backpack. the original bag is falling apart, faded, torn, snagged... it's very well loved and it's looking pretty bad.

This year for my birthday, my wonderful wonderful Aunt sent me some money with specific instructions to get something special for myself. the first thing that came to mind? ... a new VB bag. thank goodness for ebay i found a replica of my bag, whose pattern and style has been retired a few years now.

here is the old, and the new...




THEN to top off one amazingly generous gift, i just got a Mother's Day gift from the little guy i watch...


a NEW style Vera Bradley packback...
WOW! that's all i have to say about that...

so... 2 NEW VB backpacks...
i'm all set at least 10 years :)
thanks to 2 very very important families in my life...
i am smiling VERY BIG right now!!

(with my mouth closed though... cause i flossed off a huge chunk of my front tooth last night. yeah, that's nice, huh?!?)


happy mother's day :)
