Lift Them Up!

We have a goal this year to bless the socks off an organization that is doing some really amazing work, but they need help! Like so many small ministries, they rely on donors to keep their work going. Ekubo ministries is the organization we have chosen this year and with your help, we are hoping to bless them financially at a time where they really need it.about

This is something we hope we can continue to do year after year, each time picking a new ministry to support!

You can read more about Ekubo here

There are a few ways you can support them!

  1. Go directly to their site and make a donation
  2. Purchase a product from their Etsy Shop
  3. Purchase one of the T-shirts we designed below

We knew we wanted a unique and fun shirt to sell for this fundraiser, as many of you know if you watch our YouTube channel, Rosie’s favorite thing to say is “Bob, Shui?”

Which is her way of asking us for water. It’s really funny because she has shortened Baba (which means Dad in Mandarin) to Bob. People ask us all the time if CR’s name is Bob… or why she calls him Bob. We know in time she will don’t that anymore, and it’s pretty hilarious! The back of the shirt just says #thisgatherednest

The shirt areΒ  amazing quality American Apparel shirts, SUPER soft! There are multiple color options as well as a Hoody sweatshirt too!

Thank you so much to those of you who have purchased one already! They are available until Dec 15th.

Once you receive yours we’d love for you to tag us in a photo of you wearing the shirt or use #bobshui

Your kindness and generosity has blown us away this year with all the children you have sponsored through ICC and we are hoping to bless Ekubo just the same!

Thank you again, for loving and supporting us, and this new “Lift Them Up” campaign as well.

Blessing,

Lily Jade Love!

Guys.

This bag.

It’s SO perfect!

As you may or may not know, bags are kind of my thing. I have always been a collector of bags and becoming a mom made it even worse! Now I can collect diaper bags too, LOL!

I have been seeing all kinds of buzz about Lily Jade on social media for months now! I was so excited to get a chance to try out one of their bags! Before I go any farther, I need to tell you the number one reason I love this company… they have a heart for adoption. Once a month they give away a bag to an adoptive mama and it melts my heart every time!

Okay, moving on to the bag! I chose the Madeline in Black, and boy is she a real beauty! The quality surpassed my expectations! I love how worn it already feels.

As a mom of five, with two in diapers, I still carry a fair amount of “kid stuff”, however the compartment insert also allows me to carry my DSLR! Which is HUGE for me! I LOVE not having to carry two bags (a purse and a camera bag) when I want to bring my “big camera”. Such a game changer for me. I’m starting to bring my camera with me more on regular outings, which is my favorite time to get candid shots of my kids!

I also love the various ways you can carry this bag, my two favorite are on my shoulder, and as a backpack! Yes, you heard me right, this bag has a strap to make it a backpack! (all the heart eyes)

It’s not uncommon for me to need BOTH of my hands when I’m out and about with the kids and this option to wear it is my favorite of all!

Adoption Beauty Homeschool Lifestyle Motherhood Yummy Food

Hey y’all, let’s chat!

hello

Here we go again! In an effort to revamp my blog and make it more user friendly/easy to navigate, I deleted everything. Apparently you should not just reinstall a new version of wordpress on your cpanel if you don’t know what you are doing πŸ™‚

Ummm.. oops?

So, we are starting from scratch! Maybe that’s a good thing. It’s like a fresh spiral notebook! No old posts to cling to, just fresh, new ideas! That’s what I am telling myself so I don’t just sit in the corner and cry.

Okay? Okay.

So, what are we going to be talking about here? Motherhood, Adoption, Homeschool, Family, Beauty, Food (Glorious Food!) and SO MUCH MORE!!!!

This space is still very much a work in progress, but I really like it so far! Hope you do to! Grab a cup of coffee or some sweet tea and stick around, read, comment and share!

Can’t wait to get to know y’all better, and let’s cross our fingers I don’t accidentally delete this new blog too!

Muah!
