My first blog contest!!!

Dear Mom,
I love the new purse you bought me, but do you remember when I told you that I don't like big purses? I said that I end up putting way too much junk in them? Well, I cleaned it out this morning and it inspired me to create a contest.
All you readers out there-clean out your purses or pockets. Leave me a message here on my blog with either the entire contents you found or just the most unusual things in there-please let me know I am not alone in my "condition". I will use to pick a winner. The prize will be a Frances original story and drawing. You can even pick the theme. I will run this contest for a week to give infrequent viewers a chance to enter.

For the sake of full disclosure here is the list of what I found in my purse:

  • 6 jars of baby food (I just put them in there last night to carry them out of the car because the shopping bag had a hole in it.)
  • 2 lip gloss and one lip stick
  • 1 pair or real earrings that belong to my friend's daughter and one pair of dress up earrings that belong to my daughter
  • white out correction fluid
  • an air pump that I have been trying to leave at school to pump up our playground balls
  • hand sanitizer X 2
  • sample shampoo and conditioner
  • Tylenol
  • 2 scented lotions
  • sunscreen
  • a pair of scissors
  • a hair pick
  • a Hulk ring
  • baby spoon
  • mini soccer ball
  • a pair of socks
  • Polly Pocket toy
  • tampon and panty liner
  • wallet
  • 2 suckers and a mint
  • 87 cents
  • two pieces of mail from church
  • my cell phone
  • keys (4 sets)
  • wallet
  • two pens and a Sharpie marker
  • two hair ties
  • various coupons, receipts and other assorted trash.

Now I weigh 5 pounds less when I go out!!
