Goodbye Peaches, Hello Avocado!

I really should be sleeping right now, since I have to wake up 4 hours to catch a plane back to L.A. But I was so excited to pack tonight, that I decided to share my joy.

3 years ago I got a great suitcase deal from Target, 4 bags for $100. Nice and cheap. They were good suitcases, sturdy, easy to pack away and stood out from others with their bright red coloring.

But after I traveled half way around the world and back, the largest bag ripped. A minor tear, nothing big. But as the traveling continued, the rip got bigger and eventually the handle stopped functioning. Finally, it came to the point where I couldn't bear the thought of traveling with it.

Two weeks ago, while helping my friend was scope around Marshalls for a new suitcase, I found IT. The Bag. The Ultimate traveling suitcase - for women. I scare myself as I write that because I don't like buying girl things because I'm a girl. I'm a picky shopper and I buy stuff only because I like it and not because some rich person out there decided it was made for me. Nope, I don't do that. What convinced me to buy The Bag was it's pink interior. As soon as I saw that BRIGHT pink lining, I had made up my mind. Only later did I notice all the pockets, zippers and trinkets that make it so much more girly. aaahhhh!!! I hate the idea of a woman's bag, but I really...like...this bag.

And that is why I was so excited to pack.
Maybe tomorrow I'll write about spring time in Georgia or Georgian mucky muck rain.

Nice suitcase.

Why did I buy a black one? Doesn't make much sense in retrospect...

You like it despite how much you try . . .b/c you're still a girl. No matter what type of guy a man is, he'll still like beer, cars, and other man things . . .
Girls are the same. Put something perty and pink, with frills and kitties . . they'll all buy it subconsciously

you just proceeded to name the various things I abhor. Except for kitties.
It is a nice suitcase though I concur with the anon, Goodwill is the way to go.
Enjoy the avocado you lucky duck.

Anon - I'm a preschool teacher in Atlanta. When the other suitcase falls apart, I'll check out goodwill. Thanks!

Mottel/Sarabonne - Ew kitties!
