The routine of summer is beautiful, and I feel like it’s flying by! So far this summer I have taught third graders at our Vacation Bible School, enjoyed Family Camp not once, but TWICE (crazy I know and full blog post coming soon about this), worked up at camp with RJ by my side in the toddler room for a week, and this weekend headed out to the Idea Conference!

With a bit of a different rhythm this summer and a lot of on-the-go days for RJ and I, my purse/bag looks a bit different than it does the rest of the year. This summer I traded in my big Thirty One purse that I LOVE for a Madden Girl backpack; it is way more practical.


I am loving this bag. It’s soft, has the perfect amount of pockets and it’s not too big!! Best part is, I got it at ROSS! It fits all of the essentials for the summer and then some.

So let us peek inside and see what crazy things I have in my summer bag! RJ has her own little bag (that will be another post).

Planner// I always have my Erin Condren Planner in my bag; it keeps me sane! Seriously, friends, I have used every single day in her calendars for THREE years!

Journal// With all the fun services I have been able to listen to at camp and at church, I have been taking notes like crazy! All kinds of inspiration I don’t want to forget.

Radical// I am trying to read one book a week this summer and this one has been one of my favorites. It is wrecking me!

Naptime Diaries Abide Journal// Like last year I am going through ABIDE again with Naptime Diaries and we are digging through the fruits of the spirit. Currently on PATIENCE!

NeatCheeks// Face wipes for RJ that are sweetened with Stevia, fun right?!

Water + Propel Water Enhancer// HYDRATE HYDRATE! I don’t like plain water so these squeezers are perfect for me.

LARABARS// These have been my go-to bars for my pre and post workouts as well as my mid-day snack! Clean eating can be easy, friends, even on vacation and in the business of life!  RJ loves them too, so I always have to make sure I have several in my bag!

Hair Ties// Because let’s face it, with the heat of the summer, the big MESSY bun is back!

Peppermint Chap Stick and Aquaphor// Being up in the mountains a lot this summer my lips and skin get a little more dry than normal. Also the peppermint chap stick reminds me of Christmas and that just makes me happy!

Question: Alright your turn, what’s new in your bag these days? What’s your favorite snack to always have on hand?
