How to earn extra money with It Works!

How to Earn Extra Money with It Works

Three years ago, I was looking for a way to help my family financially without having to leave my girls. My friend told me how she was earning a full time income at home by helping others get healthy and feel their best. I thought it was too good to be true, but I had to learn more because that was exactly what I wanted to do!

I learned how I could get paid three different ways with It Works and start earning some extra money on my own time. I had never done anything like this before, but I knew in my heart that I couldn’t let this opportunity pass. read more

Can you work from anywhere?

Author’s Note: I’m excited to have a guest post from my husband Adam Parker today! I think he has another perspective on how we built our business since we was working outside the home when we first got started. Enjoy!

A few years ago I read a blog about working from home. It was about this guy who built a business where he was able to travel around the world and and still “show up for work”. For the life of me, I can’t find that blog post, I wish I could and thank that blogger. read more

Pregnancy Update: Entering the 3rd Trimester

On Sunday, I officially entered my 3rd trimester!!!

I don’t think the second trimester was as easy as I would have hoped… I continued to be tired off and on. The nausea ended around 15 weeks, so thankfully that wasn’t an issue. I started taking Floradix iron supplements around 20 weeks or so to help with my energy – and I really could tell a difference at first. I’m continuing to take New Chapter Organics prenatals, Calcium/Magnesium supplements called Coral Legends Plus, Drenamin by Standard Process, Chromium – which is supposed to help with your ability to metabolize sugars and Fermented Cod Liver oil by Green Pastures. read more

Refashioned Sweater into a super cute Toddler skirt

I am on a very crafty roll these days! Getting my creative juices going with some dark chocolate usually : P

I decided since I worked out 4 days this week – and I had a toddler wake me up a little earlier than normal – I was going to skip my elliptical session for the day and sew instead. I made the halter dress from the previous post and this super cute toddler skirt.

Here is the sweater I used. I actually really liked this sweater, but it ended up with some very small stains. IMG_0169

First I cut off the arms – I’m going to turn those into leggings for Aidalyn soon. read more

Retail Therapy: Thinking outside the box

So, we are having some hiccups with the sale of our house in Lake Charles that are making me frustrated with the whole process….

However, there are several things to be thankful for.

We have a buyer. The house was on the market for less than a week before it went under contract. We are not upside-down on our house. We have found a new house in Virginia at a great price!

Trying to focus on the positive, I went shopping. It wasn’t totally unnecessary.

My diaper bag has ripped in two places – just from general wear and tear.  I’m giving my old bag to Aidalyn for pretend play and I’m getting a new super-dooper bag (very technical terms here). read more

Sewing experiment – Non-pattern Halter Dress

This dress was a sewing experiment for sure!

I made this dress last night. I had a halter top shirt of Aidalyn’s that I like the idea of for a dress… but I was too cheap to buy a pattern. So I used my minimal sewing expertise and drafted a pattern from the shirt I already had. I measured Aidalyn so I knew what diameter I would need the dress to fit. I used my serger and regular sewing machine.

It honestly isn’t perfect, but for me just messing around on my sewing machine without a pattern, I think it turned out pretty good. read more
