This week on LifeasMOM is all about Loving Life [5] — finding ways to help each of us enjoy life a little more. And one way to enjoy life more is to be prepared for any adventure.

Last year, after months of talking about it, I put together adventure bags [6] that contain the different things we might need for an outing. Since we live in San Diego, there are lots of local things for us to see or do. But, I found myself frustrated that we didn’t have picnic gear or golly, I wish we had a …fill in the blank… right now.

While I wasn’t totally on top of keeping the bags organized all year, they did come in handy and I had one or two Boy Scout Moments when I was actually prepared. How cool was it to be on our fall vacation at the beach and to be able to pull a kite out of my bag of tricks [7].

Recently, reader and mompreneur Carrie Heard [8] contacted me about her company, Thirty-One Gifts [8], and this bag she wanted me to try. She said, “I know you are going to wonder how you ever lived with out it.”

Well, Carrie, I must admit I was skeptical. But, now I am a believer! Oh my! This bag is amazing. It folds almost as flat as the state of Kansas for easy storage. But, then, it holds so dang much!

Truly, I was stunned when we took it to the park the first time. We had beach towels to dry off the wet equipment, disc golf discs, water bottles, snacks, a sundry of playday items — and it all fit.

Yesterday we used it to cart balls and snacks and boxes of Valentines to our homeschool park day. And I spied several similar bags amongst the other moms, so clearly others have caught on to the beauty of bags made by Thirty-One Gifts [8].

One  of the fun things is that you can customize your bag to fit you and your style. I really wanted to know that my husband and teenage son would have no qualms about carrying it about — that sucker is big. So, I chose a simple black fabric with white writing.

But, my friend Jen [9] is a little more hip that I. See how fancy she made hers:
