It is my Blogiversary!

Is Blogiversary even a word?  No, yeah, I didn't think so, but lets go with it!  I never would have guessed when I started writing this blog that two years later I would still be writing it and that I would have so many loyal followers!  

Thank you to all of my readers!  If it wasn't for you I probably would have given up writing posts a while back, but I really enjoy being able to interact with other Vera Bradley fans.

If I hadn't had such a crazy month I might have planned something fun for today, but no such luck!  I think that I will celebrate this week by carrying some bags that I haven't carried in a while.  Maybe my Anastasia Villager or something in Pink Pansy.  Think about dusting off one of the bags you have in the back of your closet this week!

Love you all!  Thanks for reading!

Happy Monday!

I haven't brought my lunch to work in a while, but today I did! Which means I got to use my Pink Elephants Let's do Lunch!

Also worth mentioning... My Girl Scout Cookies arrived today! Thin Mints, Do-so-dos, and the new Savannah Smiles. We already broke into the box of Savannah Smiles, they're pretty good!

Count The Vera! San Francisco Weekend Trip

I went to San Francisco last weekend to visit a bunch of friends from college.  My friend Melissa loves to play a little game she calls "Count the Vera" where she and anyone who is there guesses how many Vera Bradley items I brought and then I lay it all out and count it up. Considering all I had was my Large Duffel and a purse, I was kind of surprised to realize that I had 20 items with me!  I had 20 last time too.  Melissa guessed something over 30 and then switched to 27, Christine won, she guessed 20.

Night Owl Wristlet, Cupcakes Green Turn Lock Wallet, Paprika Card Holder, Raspberry Fizz Zip ID Case, Pinwheel Pink Ditty Bag, Riviera Blue Small Bow Cosmetic, Twirly Bird Pink Button Up Coin, Mocha Rouge Button Up Coin, Raspberry Fizz Large Cosmetic, Black Microfiber Clutch, Blue Lagoon Clear Travel Cosmetic, Poppy Fields Tech Case, Totally Turq Sunglasses, Black Nylon Sunglasses Case, Pink Pansy Jewelry Case, Raspberry Fizz Tech Case, Folkloric Card Case, Market Bags, Loves Me Ditty Bag, Versailles Large Duffel. 

Just me and my Vera :)

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day! 

I participated in a really fun Valentine's Day blog swap that was organized by Stacia from at Free to be Stacia Lee and Viktoria from at Viktoria with a K.  I received this great valentine from Lady Lee in Progress.  I received this handmade necklace from her Etsy store "Lady Lee & Drew Jones" and a Vera Bradley card holder with perfect pattern placement...just look at that bird on the front!  I love them!  I wore the necklace the next day, but forgot to have someone take a picture at work so I had to try to take on myself when I got home.

Weekend Trip!

This weekend I am traveling to meet up with some friends for a girls weekend.  I am so excited to get away for the weekend and see friends that I havent seen since July!  

I bought a Versailles Large Duffel a while back when they were on sale.  It is my only Large Duffel and I decided this would be a great weekend to use it!  I am flying on an airline that will charge to check a bag, so I am going to use it as my carry on.  

Here is my bag before I put anything in it:

And here it is all packed up and ready to go! 

Can't wait to see everyone this weekend! 

Do you have a favorite bag for weekend trips?

Super Bowl 2012!

 I switched to my Twirly Bird Navy Pleated Tote last week because I haven't been using any of printed bags.  It was time to start using them again.  I took my pleated tote with me, I think it looks pretty good with my outfit.  Plus I had navy blue nail polish :) 

I met up with a group of friends at a bar that another friend is a manager at.  They had a chili cook off and there were 7 different chili's to good!  Plus my friend Katie made these wonderful cheesy potatoes that I put the chili over.  

Katie and I are riding in a Bike MS event this summer and we sold Super Bowl squares as a fundraiser.  We made $250 each, so I am a quarter of the way to my goal to raising $1,000! 

I hope you all enjoyed the Super Bowl!  

Did you have a Vera Bradley bag with you for the Super Bowl?

My Favorite Wallet - Vera Bradley Turn Lock Wallet

I used to have this faux crocodile teal color wallet...I used it for a long time even when I fell in love with Vera Bradley bags.  Back then Vera Bradley didnt make a wallet big enough for me, the biggest one was a Zip Around Wallet and I wanted more space.  My mom bought a Turn Lock Wallet in Microfiber and I was hoping that they would add it to the Signature Collection because it was the perfect size.  Well, it happened!  They added it to the Signature Collection, but my old wallet still had some life in it and I love a good deal so I decided that I could wait until I could get one on sale. 

On March 22, 2010 about a month after I started writing OhMyVera my new wallet arrived!  Click here to see that post.  Part of me though about waiting until March to do a 2 year update once I figured out that I bought it in March...but now is as good of a time as any. 

This wallet is the only wallet that I have used over the last two year.  On occasion I will use a small wallet for a night out when I use a small bag.  Other than that, this is what a wallet looks like after daily use for almost 2 years! In a couple of the photos it looks a little faded, but it is just the bright sun coming through the window. 
 This is the front of my wallet. 

Worn out least there are two layers of material!  

Another worn out corner...this one doesnt look as good.   

Worn out on the other side, but this spot has two layers of fabric as well...this is one of the faded looking photos...not really that faded, still quite bright.  

See still bright :)  Wear on the corner and paint coming off the zipper.  

But look at all this space! All those cards, plus there is a larger slot behind the top and bottom part for more cards or whatever you would want to stick in there.  

 This is the zipper side!  I have my LivingSocial deals, a calendar, lottery ticket and cash.  I should have taken the photo the other direction...there are 6 more card slots on the cash side. 

And the final photo is of the coin part on the back.  

I just bought an Accordion Wallet from a friend in Happy Snails that I am going to try out.  I am just not quite ready to retire my Turn Lock Wallet though...when I switch it over, I will definitely post photos!

What's In My Bag? (Vera Bradley Convertible Tote)

Some friends were posting fun videos of what they were carrying around in their Vera Bradley bags, so I thought that I would join the fun and make my own video.  I have been carrying my Convertible Tote lately, so check out what is inside!
