Happy Birthday to Me + a Lily Jade Giveaway!

I’M THIRTY!!! The big 3-0!

Today was a normal, hum-drum day. That’s what happens when you’re a mama and your birthday falls on a weekday :) The kids and I ate maple glazed old fashioned donuts as a treat for breakfast and Jem and I shared one of the new Pumpkin Spice bottled Frappuccino. When we bought the case at Costco Jemma specifically asked if she was old enough, now that she’s 6, to have more than one sip of my coffee. I told her that in honor of my birthday she could have half a coffee with me … I’ve never seen a happier little girl! #raisingacoffeequeen

We buzzed through schoolwork and joined friends at an indoor trampoline park to get out our wiggles. Afterwards, the kids said we should go to Panera for my birthday lunch and I obliged … nothing like a Turkey Bravo and Autumn Soup to celebrate! Reid went to town town on my turkey and he was literally licking his lips for more soup. We mega napped and woke just in time for an adventure when Mimi got home from school.

My mama made chicken pad thai for dinner and it was delish. Recipe coming soon because ohmygoodness it was fab! Dominic is out of town, hence my mama cooking, but he has made BIG promises to make up for missing my birthday with celebrations this weekend and Broadway tickets in Seattle next year! We’re going to see the King and I!

My littles are asleep now and I’m planning to binge watch all the Fall debuts that I have recorded, but I couldn’t close out the night without saying, “LILY JADE IS GIVING AWAY $250 TO ONE OF YOU IN HONOR OF MY BIRTHDAY!!!!!”

Thank you to Lily Jade for sending me the Rosie in Brandy. It’s the perfect size for this mama of 3 and even doubles as a hip briefcase of sorts when I sneak out to work at the coffee shop!

    Oh my goodness! For so long I’ve been eyeing these bags now with my little girl on the way mama needs a stylin diaper bag. I love the Madeline in Brandy.

  2. Kara Scott says

    Oh goodness, they are all so beautiful. I don’t know if I can decide! The Madeline or the Rosie or even the Meghan would all be a dream to have, especially since I will have 2 under two soon! :)

  3. Jess Elaine says

    Oh MY goodness! I would DIE to win a Madeline in literally any color. We are expecting number 4 (shhhhhh) and none of my bags look presentable!
    These are so BEAUTIFUL!

  4. says

    There wasn’t too many of those bonus entries I needed to do, only because I already stalk…I mean follow Gretchen and Lily Jade. Would love one of the bags for my first baby due end of April though! ๐ŸŽ’๐Ÿ‘œ๐Ÿ’ผ๐Ÿ˜

  5. Heather Leacy says

    Oh man… I don’t even know what I would pick. But it’d be a lot of fun to get to go shopping! :D

  6. Lisa L. says

    I LOVE the Cailin in Royal Purple… I have no idea why it’s in the Outlet because I think it’s such the prettiest color.

  7. Duana Lester says

    Happy Belated Birthday!

    I am torn between the Meggan and the Elizabeth in Brandy and Jade. They look like fantastic bags, no wonder you rave about them SO much.

  8. Colleen says

    Such a tough call, I think the Meggan. This mama needs something to convert to a bookbag (my favorite feature) with three boys 4 and under ๐Ÿ™ˆ! Thanks for the opportunity.

  9. Ann Wiley says

    Happy belated birthday! What an awesome giveaway! I’ve been eyeing a Meggan in black since we found out about the babies. I keep promising myself I’ll buy one eventually!

  10. Jenny says

    Happy birthday, sweet friend! I’ve ALWAYS loved the Elizabeth is camel. Such a dream! Especially since it can be worn as a backpack. My mama back needs a break!

  11. Sandra Caballero says

    Happy 30th Birthday!! I remember when I turned the big 3-0 got me thinking that I was going to be sad getting older. Actually I was wrong. We only get older and wiser. Having my daughters doesn’t make me feel old. I usually forget how old IAM. ๐Ÿ˜‚

    The bag I dream to have is the Elizbeth Brandy & Jade. The side pockets is what I love and the inside is washable! That is the best part ๐Ÿ˜

  12. shannon fowler says

    Its hard to chose just one but i really like madeline in red and silver. its a great pop of color for the fall and winter months.

  13. Cathy Oppedisano says

    I am dreaming of the Organizer In Jade, Product Code: BB-JDE-L-GLD. That is a special color and a useful item.

  14. says

    OMG! It is SO hard to pick one! I am in love with ALL of them! I think my first pick would be the Madeline Black and Red…but I also #love the Elizabeth Red Canvas & Silver and we can’t forget the Meggan Black Canvas & Silver! I really love them all!!

  15. Lorna says

    Happy Birthday, dear friend!! Amazing giveaway! Seriously, they are all a dream to think about but I think I love the Madeline Brandy Jade most.

  16. Kenia Guzman says

    I’ve been eyeing the Madeline in black! Absolutely gorgeous diaper bag that can double as a purse when going out! So cute, what an amazing g giveaway! Thanks for the opportunity

  17. Leeana Borja says

    I love your Rosie! I have a black canvas Meggan and a camel Elizabeth. A brandy Caroline is on its way, but I’m dreaming of a black Rosie or black Shaylee!!

  18. Sara Foreman says

    The Meggan or the Elizabeth would be awesome for all my work stuff! Right now i am using an old army backpack of my husband’s ๐Ÿ˜Š

  19. Robyn Heath says

    Happy belated birthday! (I can relate on the weekday-grown-up birthday issue!)

    I love the Elizabeth in Camel!

  20. says

    I’d love the Meggan in Brandy!! I used to want the Madeline but the Meggan looks like it’s larger to fit all of our toddlers things, haha.

  21. Heidi Duncan says

    Beautiful Rosie bag! Six year olds have more accessories when traveling on “Momma and me” adventures than I had thought possible!

  22. nidhi chauhan says

    OMG so many awesome bags. Hard to pick only one. But first I want to buy Elizabeth Camel & Jade! so pretty.

  23. Mel says

    HBD!! And I feel like I want every LJ bag. I have a stalking issue w their website but think my favorite is the Meggan as I’ve always been an overpacker so feel the bigger the better!! Lol

  24. Brittnee R says

    So awesome ! I’ve been fawning over Lily Jade for awhile now. I would probably choose a Rosie In charcoal. ๐Ÿ˜

    • Francisque Mensing says

      Oops! Forgot to say, I have a Cailin and love it (what would I give for a Cailin in charcoal and jade, with a backpack option like I’d been asked about? OMG that would be the PERFECT DREAM BAG!)

      Although, I think I’d probably pick a Shaylee of the ones with a jade interior currently offered right now. I want the backpack option, but the outer pockets have to be a specific way and I think only Shaylee would give me that. Maybe Madeline, but I’m iffy about the flap . . . I’m pretty picky about my pockets!

  25. Jenny says

    Happy birthday!! :)

    Gah! How do I narrow it down to 1!? I can’t. Lol. I’d have to go with either charcoal Elizabeth or Brandy Rosie. Both look gorg.

  26. Michelle Castonguay says

    Hope you had a wonderful birthday! I have my eyes on a black Rosie! My brand you Meggan needs a friend!

  27. Emily says

    Happy belated birthday! My hubby turned 39 this yes we too! I keep reminding him it is just a number and your are only as old as you let yourself be!

    Now those Lily Jade bags! I am drooling over the Gray Elizabeth (my new little boy is Grayson!), and the camel Rosie!

  28. Pariya Nganthavee says

    Hope you’d an awesome celebration! And hope Reid will feel better soon. My boy’s gums have been bothering him too but we don’t have the space in the house for a glider. So it’s been pretty much mama being his glider around the house.
    The Rosie looks gorgeous in you too!! It’s so my kind of style. So I’ve have to say the Rosie and in charcoal (because I love cool neutrals).
    Thank you to lily jade for the wonderful giveaway.

  29. Jill H says

    I’m dreaming of Madeline and Shaylee in camel lately. It’s a toss up. I used to think Rosie was definitely my girl but have been having second thoughts. Thanks for a great giveaway and Happy Birthday!

  30. Rachel Teshima says

    They keep coming out with new designs but I’ve followed them since the beginning and have always wanted an ELIZABETH in Camel!! :-) Thanks for this giveaway!

  31. Lindsey says

    Loooove Lily Jade! I have the camel Rosie and it’s beautiful! I have my eye on the charcoal Elizabeth now though!!!

  32. Angie Franjul says

    I want the Elizabeth or the Madeline in Black or Brandi so badly :) thanks for the giveaway and happy birthday

  33. McKenzie B. says

    Happiest of Birthdays!!! I have LOVED my 30’s so far and wish the same for you ;)

    I have been following (okay …. stalking!!) Lily Jade for a few months now. Every time I think I’ve “for sure” decided on my favorite, I change my mind within a few days!! Haha. SOOOOO many amazing options!!! But my “short list” of favorites is Rosie in camel/jade and Meggan in either brandy or charcoal (both with the new jade lining), I also LOVE the look of Shaylee in brandy, but since we recently found out that we’ll soon have 2 under 2 (so happy, but still slightly overwhelmed!) I know I’ll need one of the bigger bags. Fingers crossed!!! Thanks for the chance!

  34. Liz H. says

    A Madeline in Brandy would be amazing! Had my third little one four weeks ago and we are bursting at the seams here! ๐Ÿ˜†

  35. alexis caldwell says

    I am dreaming of the rosie in black! I think it is the perfect bag to transition from baby bag to purse.

  36. Tanya Petrenko says

    Sounds like a simple but wonderful way to celebrate your birthday! I would love the Rosie in charcoal!! ๐Ÿ˜

  37. Tawny says

    Love this! And lily jade! I am dying to get my hands on a brandy Shaylee with the new teal lining ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

  38. says

    I’m so torn between a Madeline in black or Rosie in brandy. I love the leather so, so much! Lily Jade is so generous. I hope you love your Rosie!

  39. Melissa says

    I would love a Shaylee or Madeline. I’ve been eyeing these bags for such a long time and they look perfect in every way.

  40. Robin says

    Happiest of birthdays!!! Hope you enjoyed Costco and Panera. I really miss those places! Haha. Your kids are adorable. Ps- I’m imagining your Rosie, but in charcoal! These bags are absolutely lovely.

  41. Brooke Tokanang says

    I dreamed of the Madeline in brandy, but now I can’t decide if I want the Rosie in brandy or charcoal! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ Thanks for the giveaway!

  42. Megan W says

    I have a Cailin right now and love her, but am hoping to be able to get one of the new gray bags… Now just to decide which one!!! Thank you for this chance to win one! :-)

  43. Amanda Powell says

    My dream bag is n Elizabeth in Camel and Jade! Hoping to win one one of these days since it’s not in our budget. I’ve had to settle for a leather tote I bought on Zulily until my Lily Jade dreams come true!

  44. Brooke says

    Happy belated birthday Mama!! You have a beautiful family!

    My dream Lily Jade bag is a charcoal Meggan! I babywear and am about to have my second child so I neee a big beautiful bag to carry all of our crap ๐Ÿ˜œ

    Thank you so much for giving all of us ladies a chance to win one! So very gracious of you and Lily Jade ๐Ÿ’™

  45. Amanda says

    I love all the lily jade bags, they’re so beautiful! I’m pregnant with my first and turning 30 in 2 months. This would be a perfect bday present ๐ŸŽ

  46. Brittany says

    Hard to choose just one Lily Jade bag, they are all amazing!! Shaylee is the one I’ve had my eye on. Especially in Brandy!

  47. McKenzie Kelley says

    Love love loveeee these bags! Sadly I’m a photographer and 99% of my extra money has to go back into my business so one of these gorgeous bags is not in my budget. Any one of the brown bags I’d choose!

  48. Stephanie says

    the Rosie has always been my favorite, but never considered it bc it wasn’t a backpack. Would Love the brand new one now that they have added that feature.

  49. Cheyenne says

    Happy birthday! (: I dream of a charcoal Meggan or Rosie. Come December, I’ll join the two under two club. So something big and beautiful is a must! PS my daughter shows signs of also joining the ranks of future coffee queens. Caffeine runs strong in our family. (;

  50. Julie Vieux says

    I am coveting a Rosie in camel with the new updates. Can’t wait for her to be a backpack!

    Happy birthday and many blessings to you and your family.

  51. Rody Clark says

    Happy birthday!!! I have a hard time making decisions! So at this point I’m not too sure which one I would pick, but the new linings are so beautiful!

  52. says

    I’m expecting baby #3 and so excited that I’ve recently found LJ and can’t wait to try one of their bags. The Rosie looks so cute in your photos! I love the retro bowling bag vibe! ๐Ÿ˜

  53. Cherryl Edar-Allred says

  56. Lauren says

    Oh my goodness – I am obsessed with these bags! I can’t choose just one :) I think my top choices would be the Meggan or the Shaylee, but the Rosie is pretty amazing too :)

  57. Kenya F says
