Happy Fall Everyone!
Hi! Happy Friday! To celebrate my favorite season of fall, I’m giving away the most perfect, fall tote bag ever there was.  To read more details about its awesomeness just go here: It’s the Reversible Faux Leather Tote from Nordstrom. Could it be any more perfect? It’s uses are endless. It is a great purse and can be used as a speech therapy bag as well.  And if you’re like me, a bag can never be too big.
Let’s be honest, is there anything more necessary for fall than the perfect bag? (Besides the perfect pair of boots).  I love this bag for fall in the cognac/burgundy combination.  I don’t know if I want to heat it up and drink it or wear it! It’s just a delicious piece to have.

Here is the Reversible Faux Leather Tote Bag in cognac/burgundy.  I told you it was perfect! It also comes in a variety of color combinations.  I think all of them are so pretty and great for fall! Scroll down the page to view the different bags!

To enter my fall giveaway, just comment below and tell me what is in your speech bag right now. Tests? Files? Lotion? Your laptop? Makeup? Snacks? Like I said, I’m 6 months pregnant with my third baby so my purse/bag is quite full.  You would see some files, at least 3 pens, graham crackers, an apple, my iPad, a LiPS mirror, a USB drive, and test manuals for scoring the tests I have done for 2 triennial IEPs next week!
The winner will be announced Monday! You have all weekend to enter! Good luck and happy fall from me to you!
I am not being asked in any way, shape or form by Nordstrom to promote this bag! I just love it so much and thought you might, too!
Winner will get to choose the color combination of their choice as long as they are in stock.  I have no control over this as I am clearly not affiliated with Nordstrom merchandising in any way – other than I will always visit Nordstrom, love Nordstrom, and wish I lived near one.
