Our Brunette Adventure….

Well you know how I said I would be more with it in 2018 over her on my little piece of the inter webs?….it has been 3 months since my last post. About time I showed up and gave an update on our little family.

Beckett is 6 months old. (Almost 7 months) can you believe that!?Time is flying by…… Beckett and Lilly are becoming the best of friends. Beckett wants to know where Lilly is at all times and giggles all thing puppy related.

In other news, Jimmy and I are celebrating 5 years of marriage tomorrow. So many memories we have been created these past five years. We have gone through some major milestones and some major ups/downs. My partner, travel counterpart, shoulder to cry on, always there cheering me on. No one else I’d rather do life with. Cheers to many many more.

Hopefully I don’t wait another 3 months to post again.

How I Made $1000 Online

design

If you are like me you are always up for a little extra cash from things you do everyday. I have made close to $1k by just shopping online.  How? Sure that contradicts itself, I spend money to make money, but what if I said you are already spending money why not get cash back in your wallet? It is easy……use my link to earn FREE $10 (cash not points) just for signing up. Next, log into your Ebates account anytime you are shopping online, search the company/store/online site you want to shop and bam, if you now buy anything during that online visit you will get anywhere from 1-25% cash back! You can even download the Ebates app on your iPhone.  Just open the Ebates app, search the store, it will direct you to that stores website and shop like normal.

Remember in order to get the FREE $10, you need to sign up here!

Just think of all the things we spend money on and how it would be nice to get cash back to spend towards travel and other things we enjoy. No, you don’t just have to shop for clothing online. Think big ticket items you spend hundreds of dollars on? Think Target, Amazon, Walmart, tires, appliances, furniture, etc. For example, when filing our taxes, I got 25% cash back just by clicking Ebates before heading to E-file.com. I was going to have to pay E-file a fee to file my taxes anyways but I got 25% of that fee back just from being apart of Ebates! (I think it was close to $50 cash back) Another example, my husband needed new tires for his car.  Tires are expensive, so after he searched around online for the best deal, we plugged that company into Ebates and sure enough, cash back by using Ebates!! There are so many companies that are on Ebates. All those purchases you make on Amazon, yep cash back! (however, Amazon only gives back for certain categories) We bought our daughters crib online from Target, cash back! Do you see how easy it was for me to make that money from just shopping online on my phone? Ebates also likes to run double cash-back days which is even more money back in your pocket! If the store is usually only 10% cash back on Ebates, it would be 20% cash back on those double days! Again, get that FREE $10 back just by clicking here and start getting even more money back in your pocket!

Ebates also has select stores that will give you cash back from shopping in-stores too!

Remember you have to go to Ebates every time you shop FIRST, then search the store you wish to shop, now you will get cash back. You can’t go straight to the stores website, you need to go to Ebates first. Did I also mention Ebates lists coupons and free shipping deals for companies too? Go sign up so you can start making money online now.

**This is not a sponsored post, these are all my own opinions and experiences.

 

Best of luck also bring in that $$$$ just from shopping online for your everyday purchases!

Our Growing Family- Maternity Photos

Welcome back. I am a few months behind, okay a handful of months behind on blogging content to share with you all.  Things have been busy and an adjustment with a new baby. Today, I am sharing a look into our maternity photo shoot.  We had a session with a local photography in late January, about 6 weeks before Beckett made her 6-day-late entrance.  My husband and I have not gotten professional photographs together since we got married 5 years ago.  Our wedding and engagement session?

I really wanted to remember this big milestone in our family so we braved the Indiana January freezing cold to get some great moments.  We had never taken family photos that included Lilly, our fur baby, she is only four and she joined our family after our last session five years ago. I cannot say enough about these photographs Erica Rayl Photography captured of our growing family.  The location was spot on! Ladies who are pregnant and wondering what to wear during your maternity shoot, I recommend a dress.  You can always wear pants in photographs, but I think a dress will look much better and really go a long way from your everyday wear.  I picked out my dress and then we put together items my husband already owned.  I must say, I am happy with our wardrobe choices. This handsome man has been hands down the best husband and daddy.  It has been a difficult year but I knew he would move mountains to shine as the best daddy to Beckett, and Lilly. Though the last year was not easy with his job lay-off, he stepped right up to cook, clean and take care of this preggo lady.  Sometimes life is hard and exciting all at once. It definitely was not the ‘plan’ but we are surviving and making the best life.  I always tell myself during the hard times, ‘it could always be worse, and to look at the positives’.

My dress:  PinkBlush  shop here  |||  Jimmy’s jacket/pants/shirt is J.Crew (old)
