Daily Vlogging

Last summer we tried our hand at daily vlogging. Needless to say, it didn’t last very long and I felt like it was all that we did. We didn’t do anything fun last summer because of Zachary’s broken elbow. This year we already have our pool membership and river access key/pass. So we’re going to be living it up this summer at the community pool or the river.

Because last summer was such a bust due to having a kid in a cast for 4 weeks, we’ve decided that we’re going to try daily vlogging again this summer. Starting July 1st, which really means I’ll be recording at the end of June so we upload on July 1st.

We have so much to share in our daily lives. Like how we raise our 5 children, how the adopting/fostering thing is going, what we do all summer, how we budget, teaching our kids life skills while making things fun, etc.

We will also be addressing Zachary’s behavioral issues as he was just diagnosed with ADHD and we’ll soon be testing the waters of medications available for him. We will still be pushing to have him tested to see if he is on the Autism Spectrum.

We’re looking forward to taking you all along for the ride that is our lives. We’ve got a crazy bunch of kiddos and we’re blessed beyond measure. But remember we’re only showing you the majority of the good moments in our lives. Things do go wrong and we’ll capture some of the bad moments in our lives, but we don’t want to dwell on the negative things unless there is a teachable moment.

Our main purpose for daily vlogging is to share our lives with family members who do not live nearby. Since we live in a different state than both mine and Kevin’s family we don’t see them as often. We will be using our YouTube channel to share our daily lives with those close to us. Obviously, we are opening up our lives to criticism and the potential for negative comments. We (Kevin and myself) will not tolerate negative comments towards our children or our family, we do have the settings for our comments set to where we have to manually approve them. So if there is a negative comment our children will never see them.

We look forward to sharing our Daily Dose of Delancey with you in just a few short weeks!


Seeking Companies for Paid Placement and Sponsorships

I started this blog in January 2015, in hopes of blogging and vlogging our way to home-ownership. While I’ve invested a lot of time and money into this… I’m not getting the results I want to see from what I’ve been doing. So I’m reaching out to more and more companies starting July 13th. I’ll be writing letters to home builders that have new properties in an area we would love to live, well-known companies that have been known to “sponsor” other regular people, etc.

When we vlog we can do paid placements (drinks, food, clothing, etc), paid blog posts, and even sponsorships.  Our goal is to purchase our first home as a family. Kevin and I are in desperate need of having our own home again. Our kids need their own space again, they need places to play, a place to do their homework during the school year, a place to eat their meals, and a place to just act like children. Kevin and I need a place to relax, prop our feet up and take it all in. We’re trying to enjoy our family, but in all honesty we don’t really have time to enjoy our children or each others company. We’re too busy stressing over the fact that we’ve over stayed our welcome, how we’re going to afford bills because we’re spending over $800 a month in groceries (that’s about $400 more than I’m used to spending). Over the last 11 months, I could have paid off at least three credit cards with the excess money I have spent on groceries since moving here. So it’s sad to see that our money is sort of getting wasted, especially since half the stuff I buy seems to disappear (the kids, Kevin, and I hardly ever get the things we specifically buy for our family of 7).

See we’re so stressed over silly little petty things that we could avoid if we had our own place to call home.

I’m really hoping that we can find some corporate sponsors, a home-builder looking for a Brand Ambassador. We could really use some good luck, right now.  So I’m going to keep on exhausting all my options until we get what we need as a family.

Join us by watching our weekly vlog (here). Once we get our home, we’ll be vlogging daily! So help us reach our goal of home-ownership, please!
