Happy Birthday to Me!

Soooo I turn 26 today!!

My a-ma-zing grandma surprised me by taking me to my local Vera Bradley store (Roosevelt Field Mall), and let me pick out my gift!

I know right?!

So since I had a case-less kindle fire sitting in my bag, I decided that the smartest choice would be to get the

Medium E-Book Cover in Plum Crazy

And I was able to see the lovely new shopping bags for Spring 2013!!

The Beginning...

In my 2nd year working at an elementary school I begun noticing my co workers with these cool bags and accessories with really funky and neat prints. After asking around, I found out that they were all from Vera Bradley.

I'd never heard of this company before so I let it slide.

Fast forward another year, I see more bags and different prints and I'm intrigued again. One of my friends even brought a duffel bag front here with her on our trip over the summer. So I went to my laptop to really check it out.

That was all she wrote.

When I saw the designs and types of bags and accessories, I went bananas.

No really, I went crazy.

I wanted to buy EVERYTHING.

But I was informed that I should never shop like that, I would end up with prints I really didn't like, or things I didn't need. It was hard, and I was sad, but I took my time and really sorted out what I wanted.

And now I'm the proud owner of several VB things, and my collection is slowly growing!
Hopefully my closet by 2014
