Not just another brown bag!

I usually post a recipe on Tuesdays but this past week I didn't make anything worth writing about so I figured that I'd switch it up. Not all that fun or glamorous but necessary....

In preparation for grad school to start, I made a very grown up purchase(<-insert sarcasm).  I figured since I'll be at school from 8-5 nearly every day, I'll need to pack a lunch. And I'll also be riding the train to and from, so I might need to fit some dinner in there too.

But it can't just be a brown paper bag. I plan on bringing healthy stuff like salads and possibly a lot of it. And plenty of things that need to keep cold.

Like a good student, I did my research and found the perfect lunch bag.
TA-DA!!!

I got this bag on Etsy(if you haven't heard of it, go on now!) from Sister Embroidery Shop. They sell a bunch of different stuff that they embroidery for you like adorable diaper bags, backpacks, lunch bags, and the super cute hooded towels.

Now this bag is BIG! And I wanted it big to fit a bunch of stuff. It could easily double as a book tote. Fully insulated and even has a mesh pocket for my cold packs! I picked the Damask print so I wouldn't get tired of it years down the road, like I would if I got polka dots or something.

And it's hard to see in this picture(bad lighting/iPhone) but I had them put my initial on it in turquoise. That way everyone knows who's it is :)

Just under 2 weeks left of my last summer break!! Where has the time gone?!

I have a "Built" lunch box that I love. It's so versatile, but not nearly as cute as yours.

Ooo, I love the print you picked Becca! At first, I thought the bag was a tote - that's a crazy big lunch bag ;)

That's so smart. I get so busy at school, I either forget to eat or I end up buying lunch out (which is so expensive!)

What are you going to be doing in grad school?
