I have been dying laughing every time I think about this so I had to share. Those of you who know Josh will totally be able to picture this. For the rest of you, I'm hoping I can make this sound just as funny as it really was!

The "purse" I've been using lately is really more of a bag. No pockets on the inside or outside. So you can imagine how annoyed I get when, for example, my phone is ringing and it's somewhere in the "purse" with receipts, grocery lists, wallet, change floating around and other random things. So to set the scene: I'm digging around in my purse (bag) for something and I finally blurt out with something to this effect..."Aahhhh, I hate this purse!"

Josh replies, "Then you should get a new one."

Then I say, "The last thing I have time for right now is shopping around for a new purse."

Then comes Josh's solution, (Very serious and matter-of-factly) "You should try Marie Callendars."

I burst out laughing. What? My husband seriously thinks that Marie Callendars is a handbag designer! I mean honestly, was he thinking something along the lines of a pot-pie tote or what. He was really trying to be nice and tell me that maybe I should get a nice purse that would fix all my problems but he was way off. I finally figured out I think he was meaning to say Louis Vuitton but instead Marie Callendars came to his mind. This is exactly why I love him so much! Designer handbag: So Not Me, therefore he doesn't have to worry about knowing any designer names.

Oh my goodness, I don't know Josh very well, but that made me laugh out loud! And it is quiet reading time at my school right now, so I'm getting great looks from my students. That is so funny!

That's hilarious! I think most guys would have no clue about handbag designers, but Marie Callenders?? haha You'd think he'd know who that was. haha Thanks for sharing that. I can't wait to show this post to Trapper. Hopefully he'll get it.

That makes me laugh...and want to send you one of my Coach or Dooney Burkes all in one. I did get a no name bag awhile back at ross that was really cute and had good pockets.

I was telling my husband the story and when I said Marie, he stopped and said wait doesn't she make pie? Sorry Josh even Kim knew! :)
