Work from home page update May 2, 2012

Happy Wednesday!

For those of you interested, I just updated my “work from home” page. I’ve added two more sites that I have found to help bring in extra money.


1. Opinion Place: You are given a new survey on this site about once per week, and they will pay you accordingly..usually $2-$3. They pay you with a Paypal or Amazon certificate sent to your email account. It doesn’t seem like a lot of money, but it adds up over time! Add this to other survey sites you use, and it helps.

2. Jingit: This site is relatively new to me..and I’m still figuring it out. You are paid to watch advertisement videos. Usually they will pay between $5-$10 per week. They also have apps for Andriod and Iphones that allow you to check in at certain places, and take surveys about a particular product.

So, add those two to your list! All of the sites I have mentioned can be found under the “Work From Home” page at the top.


My mom is coming in town tomorrow to visit the kids, and also attend my older sister’s baby shower on Sunday.  Her son is due at the end of July, and we are all so excited! Unfortunately, she lives a few states away, so don’t see them too often. My sister has always been my best friend, and been there for me through everything. I am so excited to meet her son, and look forward to watching our kids grow up together! Even if it’s just on holidays:)

Paige is turning two on the 19th, if you can believe it! Check back soon, I will be sharing her birth story!

Colt just turned seven months, and is getting so big! I think he will skip crawling, and just go on to walking. He’s already pulling and standing up!

Thank you to everyone who takes time from their day to read my posts! I hope your week is going great!



Fifteen minutes later… December 21, 2011

With Christmas almost here, I am frantically trying to make sure everything is ready. So after a request to go to the store, I went ahead and picked up my holiday baking needs, and dinner for the family (sorry no recipe tonight!), and left the kids with Brandon.

Fifteen minutes later…

As soon as I walked in the door, all I hear is “Ashley!!!”

Colt, who has had tummy troubles for the last two months, only poops at most once a week. There isn’t anything wrong with him, that’s just how his body is working for the time being. Well anyways, his last BM was Sunday. The thought of him pooping while I was gone didn’t even cross my mind. Wrong! I follow Brandon’s voice to Colt’s room, where he is naked on the changing table, with poop all over him, the table, and Brandon’s hands. I can’t help but laugh. Of course, I got him all clean!Brandon is still amazed that I can keep my food down everyday. After getting Colt all cleaned up, we could continue to dinner.

On a lighter note..(literally)
We got a new car today!! Our cousin Melanie has been nice enough to let us borrow her car while she went away to basic training in the air force. After having it for six months, then having to go back to my two door, single cab truck, we quickly realized it wasn’t going to work for the four of us anymore. We are now the proud owners of a 2007 hummer H3. I know many of you are questioning the gas mileage. Although I know that there are so many other vehicles that probably would have been a better choice, I ultimately picked something we both liked, and I would be the happiest with. Not to mention, the gas mileage is significantly better than a lifted F-150 and 2500HD. Here is Paige and Brandon testing out the sunroof…


Don’t worry, Brandon is holding her!
