Mama's Got a Brand New Bag!


My husband went way above and beyond for our 7th wedding anniversary! A Kelly Moore "b-hobo" was the only thing on my Christmas wishlist this year, so I'd been dropping subtle hints (read: emailing him the link constantly) for weeks. Looks like he got the hint and decided to surprise me with it for our anniversary instead! He probably wanted to shut me up that much earlier. ;)

I am so in love with this camera bag! This is the mustard color (and only one currently in stock), and it'll be the perfect splash of color against my mostly black (and jeans) wardrobe. The first thing I did was remove the purse strap and attached the longer cross-body strap. I'm planning on using it as my everyday purse, so I need to be hands-free with my two year-old twins in tow. The padding feels comfortable and the bag sits snugly against my body. That was probably the biggest reason I wanted the hobo over the gorgeous epiphanie bags. While I LOVE the colors and styles (especially Lola), I worried they would be too wide for daily use.

The hobo is the perfect size for me. It holds my xti with tamron 28-75 2.8 attached and I still have plenty of room for my purse/diaper bag stuff. My twins are old enough now that I no longer need a big diaper bag. As long as I can throw a couple diapers, a package of wipes, and a snack or two, I'm set. This bag holds all that and my wallet/keys/purse stuff with plenty of room to spare! I love the phone pockets on the sides too. I do wish it was just a wee bit longer because the very top of my iphone sticks out just a tad, but it does feel very secure in there. I'm talking maybe a millimeter here, so in the grand scheme, it's not that big a deal.

I LOVE the purple lining!



Happy anniversary, Damon! Thank you for the most amazing, life-changing 7 years! I can't wait to see what the future brings for us. I love you!
