Sara's Attempts at Making Extra Money...

     Okay, so I know this is a very lame post and you're probably all rolling your eyes at me, but as I'm sure you all know Spencer is in physical therapy school and money is extremely tight, to say the least. I've been brainstorming hundreds of ideas on how I can bring in a little extra cash while still staying home with Ashley (let's face it, we're obtaining monster debt and loans aren't even covering everything). I'm currently babysitting a super cute little boy (about 2 months) in the mornings while his mom works so her husband can go to school too. It's really fun and the extra money has helped out. And Ashley LOVES him! She's so ready to be a big sister I think haha.

     I also started a fitness blog which some of you may or may not have heard about. I wanted to put my college education to good use by starting a blog for fitness related things such as nutrition, aerobics, weight training, and more. I also have an Amazon store there which gives me a small percentage of anything on there anyone buys. (So far I've only made money off myself haha) Even if you're not in the market for purchasing fitness related items, check out the blog anyway because I like to feel appreciated for the work I put into it. ;)

     My most recent attempt has so far failed me entirely. I admit, I only started it a few days ago but I've had no success as of yet. I have my own online store for hair accessories. It's quite limited as of yet, but that's only because it takes money to start seeing as I have to make everything I put on there and I just don't have a lot of money to put into it at the moment. I'd love for anyone to check it out and give me some feedback on what I've got. The URL is I've made quite a bit of stuff in preparation for the opening of my store but I haven't posted everything I've got because it does cost money to post items for sale. Please check it out and let me know what you think or let me know of any suggestions you have.

     Lastly, I love you all and appreciate the support that you have given our family. We'd be lost without you all. We miss everyone so much and we're glad for the holidays coming up so we can see so many of our missed loved ones.
