Petunia and I

I feel bad because I have yet to buy much for this baby.  I've bought him just a few onesies and a nice swing on craigslist and that's about it.  I've been looking for a cute coming home outfit but have yet to find 'the one'. 

Today, however, I happened about a diaper bag that I just could not pass up.  Lately I've been pretty frugal, questioning my purchases, trying to find reasonable more wallet friendly solutions to things I would like to buy.  BUT today I just couldn't resist!

Ever since a few years back, way back before I had Alexa I had seen a mom carrying a Petunia Pickle Bottom diaper bag and I thought it was the cutest thing I had ever seen.  It almost made we want to have another baby just so I could purchase this diaper bag.  After I got pregnant with Alexa I remembered about this little 'want' I had, however, I found another much more reasonable yet still super cute diaper bag by Timi and Leslie, so I went with it ... and I was happy.  That diaper bag is still in very good condition but very girly so I decided I can't do that to my son in public.  Which lead me to today. 

Browsing innocently at Marshall's I discovered this bag.  And all of my previous love/lust for this bag came rushing back.  I reasoned with myself that my diaper bag would soon be replacing my hand bag so it being cute and stylish was sure to bring me some joy and cheer to all the diaper changing duties I would soon be performing.  Plus at a great price - I looked on line and they are about $150 dollars I got mine for $65.  Plus mine came with the stroller attachments, which cost an extra $20.  So that's over $100 savings!   Woo hoo!  So now I'm very much looking forward to using my new bag with my new baby and fulfilling this little secret desire of mine.   Do you have a favorite diaper bag or something you give yourself permission to splurge on?    


  1. Haha im sure your son will thankyou soon enough for not embarrising him with a pink bag. Everyone deserves to splurge every once in a while, besides the stroller attachments are rare/cool (but,what do I know about that stuff) - andres h.

  2. I love your bag and I LOVE Marshall's! :) My favorite diaper bag is from a good friend of mine and she totally splurged on it for me after I had my first daughter. It's a Kate Spade diaper bag and I don't even want to know how much she paid - but I tell her all of the time that I still use it almost 4 years later and it's always been one of my most fav pieces of "mommy gear"...it doesn't feel like a diaper bag :)

  3. OOOooo I am tempted to be jealous!! I have always wanted a Petunia bag, but I can't get myself to spend the money on one!! I will just be using the same diaper bag for this babe that I used for Owen. I feel like I can never get a big enough diaper bag though? I always had to have the diaper bag ready just incase we would end up at the hospital and I am sure the same will go for this babe!!

    Enjoy your beautiful bag!!! Congrats on the babe too!!!
