First Donation Heading to China!

Sarah is making her first donation to the children of China! She used proceeds from "Sarah Loves Ladybugs" and selected some clothes and accessories to send to her orphanage in Nanjing. She has 20 clothing items and 10 accessory items to send.

In China, clothing with English writing and bling is very "cool" so she's picked out some things that she's sure the kiddos will LOVE! And this time she's sending things for the older kiddos as many times donation of clothing are given for infants/toddlers.

She's already contacted the orphanage and they know the box is being sent. They'll be taking some photos of the kiddos getting the new items and will email them to Sarah .... she'll share the photos once they arrive.

THANKS so much to everyone for your support of "Sarah Loves Ladybugs"!! Sarah can't wait to save up for her next donation and looking into options for places to donate, so if you have a suggestion please let us know (any country, any orphanage suggestion appreciated).

Room Service, Anyone?!?!?

On Sunday morning, the 4th of July, Kevin and I were being lazy (as normal) when the home phone rang. We did what we normally do when the phone rings, we ignored it and let it go to the answering machine. But this was a special call .... a call made by Sarah who was still in bed, using her cell phone and calling upstairs (ie, the living room and kitchen) to request .... what for it ..... ROOM SERVICE! Her message, "I'd like room service please!"

Little did I know that she also had left two text messages on my cell phone (which was in my purse so I didn't hear the messages come in). The first message reads "Can u make me waffles? Dad too please." The second message was sent about 20 minutes later and reads "Can u make waffles?" Guess the kid REALLY wanted waffles!! And she's a goofball!

No, she didn't get breakfast in bed. She did get waffles though ... I just roll that way!

Hope you all had a wonderful 4th!
