About Me

My photo
God has blessed me tremendously with an amazing husband, Doug, and two gorgeous little boys, Gavin and Joey. It has always been a dream of mine to have a large family but God may have other plans. I had a series of 6 consecutive early miscarriages when trying for baby #2. We are currently trying for baby #3 after our 7th miscarriage. I am faithful that God's plan is perfect, even when I am not happy about it. I love comments and meeting new followers so please don't be shy!

Coach Multifunction Tote Giveaway!

(One of the things that I struggled with when I was surviving my miscarriages is wanting to get excited about being pregnant but not wanting to get excited about being pregnant. Anyone who has had a loss, knows what I mean. Other moms get to start planning nurseries, buying baby clothes, and generally make plans. I never wanted to plan past the next couple of hours, let alone months.

So, how perfect is this little deal? A diaper bag that doesn't have to be! It has all the functions, storage, and compartments that every mom would want in a diaper bag but it also serves as a fantastic school/work bag, carry on luggage, or when I was shuttling Doug to doctor appointments, tests, and hospital stays, it was perfect as a shoulder bag that carried my laptop, snacks, my wallet, and other essentials. (Please NOTE that my bag is NOT the one I am giving away. The giveaway bag is brand new. I am too in love with my own to give it away!) It is a fabric bag with one leather stripe around and leather handles. It also comes with a fabric/detachable shoulder strap. Also inside is a fabric changing pad/laptop lap cushion.
If you are pregnant, great! If you aren't, great! If you are dealing with infertility or loss, it is a perfect pick me up! I love that it is functional and full of potential. You can get this bag and not feel like you are going to jinx an early pregnancy. You don't have to walk into Babies 'R' Us, window shop, and leave empty handed. You can get this bag and know that if God blesses you with children, you have this base covered. If you start your period, you have plenty of room for pads, tissues, and Midol. If you are finished or not having children, then you get to travel and you can travel in style!
Before I explain how you can enter to win this bag, I want to thank my very dear friend G who let me spend practically our whole shopping day crying, venting, and releasing all of my bottled up stress, frustration, and tears. Shopping at Coach would have made me happier, but without the perfect company, I would have just been a sad lady with a kick @ss multi-purpose bag.

Please note that I am not affiliated in any way with Coach. (Although I would LOVE to be! Hello important people at Coach. I will be your infertile spokesperson! Nothing says healing like a fine leather handbag!) All opinions are my own and I was not compensated for this post or giveaway.
