What’s in Your…? Lauren’s Latest Edition!

Up this week we have a new friend of mine!

The adorable Lauren from Lauren’s Latest!

If you don’t know Lauren you need to get your cute butt over there and check out her site.  She makes stuff like THIS and THIS and seriously, THIS.

Also, her recipe for Southwest Chicken Chop salad is now in our weekly rotation.  It’s amazing!


And lucky for us she let us take a snoop inside her purse…

Take it away Lauren!


Hey everyone! I’m Lauren from Lauren’s Latest and right now, you poor souls get to dive into the depths of my messy purse….yay for you! Besides countless crumbs, gum wrappers and miscellaneous small plastic toys, this is what I had left:

a. hand sanitizer….because I’m a mom and public restrooms are nasty.

b. head phones for the gym. I watch re-runs of The Real Housewives of New Jersey almost every morning. Thank you Bravo.

c. my keys. This one is sort of self explanatory.

d. my iphone –> aka my life.

e. my wallet. My money can’t spend itself!


f.  granola bar. Because I have an eternally hungry 3 year old daughter.

g. Rapunzel sunglasses. The only reason I had these in my purse is because I forgot to leave them in the car. And cause my daughter wears these in the house. At night. In the morning. Sometimes during nap.

h. gum. I always seem to have gum these days. Not sure why…

i. apple sauce. Because I have an eternally hungry 3 year old. Also, see f.


I almost always have a little notebook and a pen {….or four….} for writing recipe ideas down. You never know when you’ll get an idea pop into your head.


And, finally under all this stuff I had approximately 17 receipts. All smooshed at the bottom of my purse with those crumbs and gum wrappers. Just keepin’ it real folks.


There you have it! Thanks for hosting this hot mess, Shelly & Kristan!

    A 3 year old daughter and you are brave enough to carry a white purse… That’s the definition of bravery. I’ve resorted to using reusable/washable grocery bags as a purse. Me = not brave.
    Also, just found this site by your tweet, LOVE it!

    I’ll take your four pens and raise you 5 more…it’s a sickness. I can’t seem to not collect the dang things! *hangs head in shame* But of course, even with so many it’s hard to find one in the bottom of my black hole of a purse… *murphy’s law*

    I have snacks hidden in my purse all the time too but, sadly, it’s for my hubby and not kids. He doesn’t like to think ahead!
