Easy Way to Make Money

For anyone out there interested in finding new ways to earn money, how about try dNeero. This is a company I recently learned about and I"m very impressed with all they have to offer. I get to take surveys about things that interest me, post them on my blog and make money! How easy is that?! Check it out for yourself...


In my opinion you can never have too much bedding. It seems there is always a need for an extra blanket, comforter or pillow case around our house. We have so many different pieces of bedding...which is really nice. We've had our house full of family staying before, and it was nice to have plenty of bedding for them to use while staying here. I would recommend anyone keep their old bedding and use it down the road. Even if you don't think you would have use for it now, you may someday.

Coffee Drinker

I am not a huge coffee drinker, but I would sure love a capresso maker or an espresso machine!! That would be great. I may have to drop a few hints to my husband so that he knows what he can get me for my birthday! I want to look around first though and find one that I really like. I'm sure there are many out there and I want to find one that will be good for us without costing a ton of money. We'll see what I can find.

I am so thankful that I have the opportunity to not only be at home with our little girl each day, but also have the chance to make a little money as well. I don't have time to take on a full time job from home right now, but doing a little blogging here and there sure is nice!! Sometimes I get frustrated when there aren't enough opportunities out there for me to do, but then I try to remember that I'm blessed and should be thankful for every opportunity I have!!


Scott and I are fairly young adults still, and we have found that in life there are those people who see we're young and probably not as experienced with certain things in life, so they take advantage of that. Whether it be a tax person or someone seems that they see that we're young and take advantage. That's why whenever possible we like to do business with people that we trust or come recommended by some of our family members. We have a great insurance agent for instance, who is always looking out for our best interest. He has a job to do, but he cares and wants to help us get the best deals. That's the kind of people I enjoy doing business with!!

Our Kitchen

When we moved into our new house, one of the first things we noticed were the kitchen cupboards and the door hardware on them. Even though it's an older house, and I think the kitchen is pretty much in it's original state...the cupboards looked really nice! In fact, the hardware on the doors looked really nice. We thought we might have to replace some things like that seeing how it's an older house, but thankfully we really like it and won't need to for a long time.


Anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE jewelry. I even enjoy getting it for my husband. He doesn't wear it a whole lot, but a while back I thought he might where a gold chain. He's darker complected, and I thought it would look really nice. I was looked great, but unfortunately he was allergic to it and it made him break out in a rash. I guess we're going to have to find him another kind of metal.

Finding anything and everything

At work my husband is the guy who is known for finding anything someone is looking to buy. Whether they're looking for a new cell phone, car, computer or even something like a CAT6 cable....he's the one that everyone goes to. I think it's because he's really good at searching the internet and finding these things at the very best prices. Over the past he's helped so many people. I'm proud of him...he's very good at what he does.

Beauty Schools

Living here in the midwest, almost everyone has heard of Regency cosmetology school. They were founded 50 years ago and are continuing to grow very rapidly. They have expanded to include almost 30 campuses across nine different states in the US. Many people enjoy attending Regency because they bring a unique approach to cosmetology education. They have wonderful training and are known for the placements that they make. That's great when it comes to going to college and finding a job after your done! I've heard many great things about them. If you're interested in learning more about Regency, you should definitely check out their site. They offer a wealth of information that could be very helpful in helping you make a decision.

Earn Money From Home

I am always looking for new ways to make a little extra money online these days. I have found a few ways...but would love to look for more. I am thankful for the opportunities that I've had so far to make money, and am excited to see what the future has in store. I enjoy having that extra cash flow. It helps my hubby and I get things done around the house and buy our little girl extra things like toys for instance. It's sure nice being home and being able to make some extra money besides.

Digital Cameras

Everyday our little girl just amazes me. I can't believe how much she has changed in such a short period of time. Last night we were taking pictures of we often do....and she was sitting up between her boppy pillow. She's not sitting on her own yet, but the fact that she could sit there with out help from us was amazing to us. We thankfully caught it on camera. Thank goodness for digital!

Wholesale Flowers

Flowers can be very expensive, especially when you're buying different arrangements when planning a wedding. The last thing you need to do when planning a wedding is stress out about how much flowers are costing. That's why I'd recommend anyone in this situation to check out FiftyFlowers. They offer wholesale flowers, which helps save 75 percent on the flower cost. What's nice about FiftyFlowers is that they'll overnight the flowers to you and you'll have them very next day. Take a look at their site and check it out. It's definitely something that those planning a wedding would find helpful.

New Wall

When we moved into our home 6 months ago, there were definitely some projects that we knew we'd want to do. One of those projects was putting up a wall in one of the bedrooms to split it into two. Over the past few weeks we've been getting that wall up and it's almost done! I can't wait! I think next week Scott should be able to paint it and it should be all finished. It will look so nice. That gives me two new walls to decorate!:)

Nice Weekend Ahead

Finally, it's Friday!! I'm very happy that the work week is finally over. It went by very quickly this week, which is nice because Scott loves his weekends with his family! This weekend we're going to spend some time with my parents. We're also going to go out to eat with my grandparents which should be fun, as we haven't seen them for quite a while now. It will be fun for them to see Kaelyn she has grown so much over the past few months!! It should be a nice weekend.

Great Vacation

It's been about a year and a half since Scott and I took a vacation anywhere. We were just talking recently about how fun it will be when we can take our kids on family vacations one day. As we were discussing this, I came across a great site that gave a lot of information about the Karisma Hotels on the beaches of the Mexican Riviera Maya and all they have to offer. I was so impressed with their gourmet inclusive packages that I wanted to tell others about it is as well! Anyone who loves food will love this gourmet inclusive concept. You get to experience all kinds of yummy foods all for one price. You also are getting top of the line service and amazing accommodations like beach beds, bar swings, swim-up rooms, hot tubs and so much more!! Take a look at their site today if you're interested in a great vacation like this.


Scott and I went to our tax person and got our tax documents to her two weeks ago tomorrow. We had a lot of information for her to go through especially with everything that has changed in the last year...moving, new job, and having Kaelyn. There's a lot for her to go through, so we're just sitting patiently waiting for her to call and tell us how it all turned out! Hopefully we'll be hearing from her today or tomorrow...we're very anxious! :)

Mom Blogs

When I have time, one of my favorite things to do is search the web and read other mom blogs. I enjoy reading what other moms have to say about their personal experiences...especially those who have stayed at home and can relate to a lot of the things that I am going through at this point in my life. There are so many unique blogs out there, each having something wonderful and interesting to share with others. I don't get a lot of time to do this, but when I do I really enjoy it!

Wedding Planning Site

Anyone who has ever planned a wedding before knows how stressful it can be!! There is just so much detail that goes into a wedding of any size and style. When I was planning my wedding, i was thankful to have my mom there by my side to help me out with all the details. If I didn't have her, I don't know what I would have done. Having someone, or something to help you plan is so important. That's why some people may find the Wedding Channel site very helpful! They offer so many useful planning tools, expert advice, photos, lists of vendors and so much more when it comes to Wedding Ideas at the click of a button. If you'd like to make your wedding planning a little less stressful, definitely check out all this site has to offer.

So Quiet

The house is quite as Kaelyn sleeps. It's not too often that it's so quiet around here that all I can here is the clock ticking and the keys on the computer as I type. With Kaelyn getting older she is cooing and laughing so much more. It's so much fun and makes for a very fun and energetic day. When naps roll around the house suddenly becomes still. This is the time I get some cleaning done and hop on the computer to hopefully get some much needed work done.

So Much Fun!

I can't say enough how fun it is to be home with my daughter and watch her change and grow each and everyday. I think each day that passes there's something new that she does that just amazes me. Recently she's found her feet which is so cute when she's trying to grab at them and watch them. She's also been rolling over on her side from her back a lot....which means lots of moving around in her crib at night too. She's also showing signs of wanting to sit up. Whenever she's in her bouncy seat, you can see her trying to pull herself up. She can't do that yet, but when left sitting with pillows around her she can stay stable for a number of seconds. Finally, she has been watching us talk very closely. When we talk to her you can see her watching very closely to what we are doing with our mouths, and you can see her little mouth moving and trying to do the same thing. She also trying to imitate sounds. It's all so much fun!

Great Site

Enthoeogen is a word which means "becoming divine within". It's a word related to ethnobotanical, which is basically speaking of plants that have agents that promote healing. One of the oldest entheogen is Amanita muscaria. There are others you may have heard of such as hawaiian Baby Woodrose, Morning Glory, Blue Lotus and others, but they are not as popular ias the Amanita muscaria. This is a legit product for adults, not simply offered for "legal highs" as many people might assume. If you're looking to find the highest quality specimens you definitely should check out today! I think you'll find it as informative and interesting as I did. Take a look and see what you think.

American Idol

American Idol is a show that both Scott and I really enjoy watching together. Usually we have different taste in shows, so it's fun to have one that we enjoy together. It just started, and actually as I write this we're watching the girls sing. Tomorrow night is the first elimination and I'm curious to see how America will vote. I definitely have my favorites, so it will be fun to watch tomorrow night.

Nap Time

It's not very often that I get a nap during the day, but today I absolutely had to. I have had a headache today and just really needed a nap. So....while Kaelyn took her afternoon nap, I laid down as well. I must say that it really seemed to help out a lot!! Some days I just need to take a minute and just relax, and that's what I did today. Now I'm refreshed and able to get the work done tonight that I need to.

I sure wish Spring would hurry up and get here. I'm so tired of this bitter cold weather we've been having!! It seems that every time I look at the thermometer on the outside of our house, it says it's below zero. It's miserable to be outside, and no matter how high we have the heat on never seems warm enough. Hopefully since winter came early this year, it will leave early as well. Maybe as early as next month...what do you think?!? I sure hope so!

Lots to do!

This week has been so busy! I've had the intention of getting lots of things done, but between dentist appointments, working online, getting our taxes situated and so much more...I haven't gotten everything accomplished that I would have liked to. Oh least the weekend is here now. Scott will be home both Saturday and Sunday, so he can help me out with Kaelyn and the other stuff that I need to do.


I'm sure many people have heard of the Monex Deposit company. I know I have, many times! They are America's leader when it comes to the investment of precious metals like gold bullion and silver. They have been around for over 30 years and are trusted by many. That's a long time...I know I"d like to go through a company like this! You can purchase silver, gold, and other metals through them and arrange for them to deliver to you or a place of safe storage. It's really a great time to invest in silver and gold and something many people may want to consider.

New Job

My brother recently informed me and my family that he got a promotion within the company that he works for. It's one that he's been wanting for a while now, and I am so happy for him!! It's a wonderful position, and one that I know he'll do great at!! It's not too often that someone just out of college finds their dream he's very blessed...that's for sure!! I hope he loves it just as much as the job he has now...I'm sure he will!

Zenni Optical

If you where glasses then you know that they can be quite expensive. I only have reading glasses, but even those are very spendy. That's why I began looking elsewhere and came across Great Discovery: Zenni Optical $8 Glasses.

I'm always happy when it's Friday! Friday means that Scott is soon to be off work and home with us for the weekend. It's always nice when he's home so that he can spend time with Kaelyn and I. I know he enjoys it too. He doesn't mind going to work during the week...but he sure appreciates having his weekends off to spend with his family. Only a few more hours left and he'll be home. YEAH!

Auto Insurance

Finding insurance is something that my husband and I have gotten used to over the past year or so. In moving at the beginning of last year, we learned how stressful it can be to find good home insurance, health insurance, even auto insurance. There are so many companies out there and it was important to us to find the best deals and coverage! One company that I recently heard about when it comes to auto insurance is Cost U Less. I'd definitely like to look into them further! They have been in insurance since 1980 and offer cheap car insurance. If you live in California and are looking for a good insurance company...bakersfield car insurance may be just right for you!! Check out their site today!

American Idol

Have you been watching American Idol lately?! I sure have! Wow!! I can't believe how crazy of a Hollywood week those contestants had. It seems to be a very stressful and overwhelming time for those who are trying to make it through to the top 24. I don't think I could deal with the stress as well as some of those people did! Overall I thought the judges did a good job putting through the top 24 that would be best for the show. I felt bad for the ones that didn't make it, but it's a huge thing just to get to Hollywood!!

Friday, February 8, 2008


One thing my husband has really been wanting for a long time is an HDTV. I have been trying to save some money so I can surprise him with one sometime down the road...but they sure are expensive. It's probably going to be a while I think! One thing that I know he'll want once he does have a TV like this are the HDMI cables. I guess they help to make the picture a lot clearer than if you just had the regular cables. That's something I'm going to have to look into once I have the money to buy him this TV.

Picking up a new hobby!

I have always wished that I could sew. My Grandma used to show me a few things when it came to that before she got Alzheimers and I always enjoyed that. Now, if she was well, I know she would show me even more. My sister-in-law also enjoys sewing and making things. She's made curtains for me a number of times. I think I may have to teach myself how to do some of these things now that I'm home. I found a great site that offers Robert Allen fabrics which is absolutely beautiful!! You should check it out!


My husband absolutely loves everything to do with electronics. My dad is the same they always have a lot to talk about. One thing that I recently heard Scott talking about was Bose headphones. He thinks they would be great for his job. He works in agriculture and during the busy season, he's usually in a really loud machine for most of the day. He thought it would be nice to have the headphones for days like that. I am going to do some looking for him, as I think he would get a lot of use out of them.
