To Pittsburgh!

Today my mother and I are going to enjoy our day off by heading down to Pittsburgh for shopping and an overnight in a hotel! I can hardly contain my excitement! Before we head out, I thought I'd give you a glimpse into the overnight packing process.  Before you judge my choice of literature, please remember that my job requires that I read young adult books...although, to be honest, I would be reading them anyway!

I'm usually not a Vera Bradley fan, but I just love the owls on the bag pictured above, and I fell in love.  It is my "teacher bag" that I take with me to and from school everyday, but it comes in hand to tote around my laptop and books on the weekends.  The compact with the two birds was a gift from my father that he brought back with him on a trip to South Korea, and the small change purse belonged to my Great Aunt and is from Neiman-Marcus.

I'm taking my camera on the trip, so hopefully I'll be able to get some good photos, although without Dan manning the camera we shall see...


  1. Oh, love your sweet straw bag! I adore your reading picks...a nice variety (I do that too...I never know what mood I will be in :) )

    Have a great adventure!

  7. Oooh, have a lovely trip! Have you read Across The Nightingale Floor? It's one of my favourite YA novels. Although I'm surprised it's classed as YA because it's quite violent.

  8. that little mirror is so cute!

  9. Ok, first off, I love the combinations... I wish I was organized enough with my bags to make everything cute, but mine are always full of old tissues. Also, what is your job and where can I get it?
