Talking Bags

On the advise of Meg, I'm trying to add some Blogthings to my blog. I decided to do a quiz about the bag I carried this whole summer (and then some) as well as my brand spankin- new Vera Bradley bag. This quiz is the most convoluted quiz ever but here ya go!
What Your Handbag Says About You
Old Bag
Free with $25 purchase at Bath & Body works
Outside-denim, Inside- stripes of orange, pink, blues, and white. Bright teal straps
You wear your handbag over your shoulder.
You tend to be relaxed throughout the day. You are naturally at peace.
Your handbag is big.
You are a high maintenance person. You feel lost outside of your normal environment.
You carry items like a toothbrush or underwear in your bag. (While I haven't carried BOTH of these items on a regular basis, I did keep bandaids, tylenol, rubberbands, snacks, stress ball, bug spray, sunscreen, makeup, afterbite, camera, and deodorant in my bag most of this summer- and panties occasionally)
Your motto is : “Be prepared.” You don't like to be surprised by anything.
Your handbag has bright colors.
You are an outgoing and expressive person. You always speak your mind, and you're very approachable.

Full Update Abridged

A full update on my recent activities (abridged). I've been battling a cold and losing for about a week. Last week, I was interviewed by a woman who moved from York, PA a few years ago. I hope to hear from her today or tomorrow about the job. This past weekend was lovely. It was Girls' weekend up at swanzey. It was awesome. Beautiful weather, successful shopping (a new-ish, gorgeous Vera Bradley bag for like $15) and wonderful bonding time with Matt's family. After Kirsten and I came home, we met Matt at Overlook Farm. That was pretty neat, but I was feeling lousy with sinus pressure, so I went home and fell asleep and tried to stay that way. On Tuesday I was driving along Prospect St. and got a flat tire. Matt thinks I damaged the rim riding on the flat, but I think I bumped into an awful curb when I got the flat. Last night, Matt and I went to the movies and saw Ghost Town. It was very Heart & Soul meets the Office and Tea Leoni and that British guy from the british Office- FANTASTIC! This weekend, we're going to spend some time with Erik and Tracy.
Future plans? I'm glad you asked. I think I'm going to visit Meg, Maddie, Bob and Mom sans Matt late October or early November. We may be going to Rhode Island for a Halloween party. It's killing me that I have to miss Maddie's 2nd B-day, but it's not being held on her b-day like I thought. Matt and I are going to Rich's sisters' wedding on the 15th- also in Rhode Island.

So that's the abridged version of the life of caitlin. Enjoy.
