Blogher Mode, Purse Remorse and a Tourist In My Own City


I’m in straight Blogher mode. Between fitting in my clients, getting last minute things and making sure the house is in order, Blogher here I come!

We went shopping last week and I was looking for a Vera Bradley bag to carry my ‘easy to get to’ essentials.  Then I remembered my Franklin Covey bag that I’ve barely used.  It has more than enough pockets and compartments to carry an entire office if I wish.  I’ll look for a Vera Bradley when I’m not feeling pressed and I find the print that I think I can’t live without. 

I have a purse in my closet now (many purses) that I may have carried twice. Still sitting in the dust bag and I don’t carry it because I made the wrong choice of color and design. 

Nevertheless, I’m so excited about Blogher. I started getting my bags packed and mapping out all the details.  Speaking of mapping out all the details…. I’ve lived in Chicago all my life and when it comes to downtown, I feel like a tourist in my own city.  Of course we haven’t lived in the city for nearly 10 years, but I’m praying I don’t get lost
