Scout Deano Bag

Happy Thursday!

Again, I'd like to reiterate from yesterday's post, I'm sorry for my lack of commenting this week.  It's been hard enough to get my posts written.  I am missing all of your blogs though and am hoping to catch up soon!

Today's post was inspired by Leigh, over at Hines-Sight Blog.  She recently wrote a post that was called "Packing a Boden Swimsuit and Much More in My Pool Bag" (see here).  I love reading all her funny antics as a busy, Southern mama and in this post she did not disappoint!

The phenomena she explained is one any mama or babysitter understands--going to the pool with kids involves a lot of PACKING!

When I go to the pool, river, or beach by myself I pack a cute little Pink & Green crab beach bag that perfectly holds a bottle of sunscreen, my towel, and a few magazines or books.  Once I started taking the Cuties to the pool, though, a few years ago, it quickly became clear that my cute little bag wouldn't cut it.

I, therefore, decided to purchase a much bigger cute bag:  The Scout Deano bag!  All the super cute moms at the Cuties' country club have them, so I fit right in!

Poolside with my Scout Deano!

This is my third summer of carrying the bag almost daily and it is still in great shape!

The thing is huge!

My Deano bag usually contains at least three beach towels, a few pairs of goggles, diving sticks, lots of sunscreen, sunglasses, magazines, books, a cosmetic bag, lunchbox and more!  It is literally HUGE!!

Scout also makes the cutest storage bins, coolers, trash bins, lunchboxes and more, always in bright, preppy prints!

I am loving some of this summer's prints and am thinking I might have to get myself another Scout something!

"Spirit Liftah" for $7?  YES, PLEASE!

"Packin' Heat"..I'll take that too!

An insulated "Cool Clutch" would also be a nice addition to my Scout collection!

Don't you just LOVE the print on this "Uptown Girl"?

Do you own anything made by Scout?  How do you keep track of all your pool gear?

Have a great Thursday..it's almost the HOLIDAY WEEKEND!

  18. I love the bag, and you look so cute poolside! I know what you mean about a big bag, I used to take my cousins to the pool and found that if I didn't carry their stuff it would get left/ lost!

  19. Love your bag! I had one about that size during my student teaching for all of the stuff I had to carry back and forth every day.

    You look so cute and pool ready!

  20. Allie you are so cute! First off, love the new layout. Sad that I haven't been to your blog in the last week but this final week of institute has been insane. Today was my last day teaching and I am missing my students already. Also, I got hired! Ask me about that later. Anyway, back to the cuteness of this post - this bag is so cool. I love how big it is. How great would it be for teaching? I need something to carry all my stuff in and I feel silly carrying a backpack. It looks like you're having an awesome summer!

  28. Allie,

    A little late reading. I'm sure you know why with the kids. Thanks for your kind words about my blog. I appreciate it. I had seen the headline in my dashboard, and had wanted to go back because you are not going to believe this, but my sister-in-law had a Scout Deano at the beach last week. It was the first one I had ever seen. Hers is in stripes. Great bag!

    Also, if you get the chance and want to do so, friend me on FB. I love to ineract with people. I found the "like" page was two one-sided. I still have it, but I"m enjoying the friend page. It's Leigh Hines-Sight.

  29. I have that Scout bag, but in pink and green! You're right, it is huge, but so wonderful when you need to haul a lot of stuff around.
    XO,
    Hannah

    p.s. I've got a great giveaway going on right now!
