The Diaper Bag Dilemma...

So, I've never had a diaper bag. I recant...I've had MANY diaper bags but sadly returned each one because they were never the perfect fit for me. They've all kind of cramped my style a bit...too big, too girly, momish, babyish. All I've wanted was a simple, sleek, modern and functional bag. Not too big, not too small.

Now that I have a toddler and am due to welcome baby #2 in 11 weeks, I felt it was high time to start my search again. After all, I'm going to have a lot more stuff *sigh*.

So, I found this fantastic Skip Hop diaper bag that many of my favorite modern sites have been pushing. It has these great "shuttle clips" that clip to your stroller, so you don't have to awkwardly hang the bag by it's straps or shove it under the basket. A bonus, if you own a Bugaboo stroller, supposedly it's the only diaper bag that truly is compatible because of this feature.

I bought it, received it seems really BIG. It measures 13"W x 13.75" T x 4.25" D.

I guess I'm appealing to all of my mom friends...have you found "The Perfect Bag"? I would love to know what you have and why you love it.

I haven't returned my Skip Hop might be growing on me ;)

There's a first time for everything... I've actually had this blog since August of 2007, but have done absolutely nothing with it! More from fear rather than laziness.

I'm now ready to enter unchartered territory (for myself that is) and start writing about the things I love (my family, daily life, life's quirks, etc.). I love to journal...but up until now that has been off-limits for the eyes of others.

It's been so much fun following the blogs of my friends and I've loved their openness regarding their struggles, advice, and life. I have learned so much from them, that I thought it only fair to put myself out there too and get out of my little comfort bubble.

*Disclaimer* I can't promise my entries to be incredibly thought provoking. But, I hope it will be a source of entertainment and amusement for my friends and family...we all know how quirky my life tends to be!
