Sisterhood of the traveling Coach diaper bag


I know this seems like a weird post, but there is a fun story behind this bag. This diaper bag has some serious passport stamps, here is the story:

Our junior year of college (we were at separate colleges) one of my best friends, Meghan, went to study abroad in Florence, Italy for the year and her mom bought her this Coach diaper bag as a good overall travel bag. Since its a diaper bag, it has a lot of great little pockets to store lots of things. In her year there, it went all over Europe and to Thailand.

Then, our senior year, I studied abroad in Rome, and Meghan let me borrow the diaper bag for my travels where the bag wen around Europe and Italy again.

The next year, Meghan took it to Italy to visit her sister to China and Hong Kong for work, and now, she is returning to France with me!!

This diaper has some serious mileage and thank you to Meghan for letting me take her on my travels - again!!

I love this blog title! And your story about the bag and all is so cool. Plus, it's a cool bag, lots of storage space. Love such bags!
Have fun in France. And don't forget an umbrella might be needed. ;) But you've got enough space there. ;)

I love this post, it's so fun! My friends and I tried to do something like this when everyone was in all different places, but it just didn't end up working out. Good for you for keeping it going! =)

What a great story! I just burst out laughing when I saw that you were toting a Coach diaper bag because I accidentally bought a Coach diaper bag as a school tote. I just thought it was a cool bag with lots of great compartments, including little places on the side for water bottles...lol! My husband teased me so much about it so I just showed him your post and felt totally justified...haha!
