I'm beginning to think this blog will be a mix of mommy-hood and savings and deals that I find in my travels. This particular post is about the joys of mommy hood. As you may have read in my first post, we have a 4 1/2 month old and a 2 1/2 year old. They're both the most obnoxious blessings I could ever hope to have. This has been a challenging weekend for the baby. She's had a bit of an upset tummy, which isn't a big deal in itself, poopy diapers are nothing to this old pro! What I DO mind is that she has this magic ability to not get any of the poo IN her diaper. Yea, figure that mess out. Somehow she shoots it in a straight line right up her back. As you can imagine this is a bit of a mess. So much of a mess, in fact, that last night my husband just asked for a pair of scissors. We weren't even gonna try to get the onesie off OVER her head. She'd only been out of the bathtub for 10 minutes, I was NOT dealing with poopy hair.
So here it is, Sunday morning and she's still full of an upset tummy and we're staying home from church :/ If nothing else, this means I get to harass you all with exciting blog posts today!

So I promised to show how to make money online. Before we start, I must issue a word of warning. You're not going to get rich with your butt on the couch. If that's what you're looking for, I must sadly tell you to use that little red "X" in the upper right corner of your screen. I just can't help you. But, if you want to learn how to make a little extra money when the kids are napping, or your dog decided to leave you alone for 10 minutes, stick with me! I can usually pull off anywhere from 20$ to 400$ in a month depending on how hard I work at it and how much I can get the kids to sleep :)
The first and most fun site I earn on is SwagBucks. First thing you have to do is sign up, which you can do here: Sign Up There are a TON of ways to earn here. The most common way, and what the site is centered around is searching. Generally you can expect to get 2-5 search wins in a day. Don't constantly search, just replace any searching you do on say, Google, with the SwagBucks search engine. Some of the other ways to earn are filling out special offers, taking surveys, doing tasks, playing games, or even printing and using coupons! With SB you can cash out for a 5$ Amazon Gift Card for just 450 points!
After signing up, I would highly recommend reading the newbie guide to SwagBucks. It was created by veteran "Swaggers" and will be an excellent resource to you as you begin your journey Swagging101
It's a great way to earn a little extra money every month to save up for birthdays, Christmas, diapers, or even for a Kindle.
This being my first blog post and all, I feel like I should make it a bit interesting. Problem with that is, I'm not terribly interesting. Oh sure, I have 2 kids, and they're full of stories since they're 2 years and 4 months old. I'm also a Navy wife, which come with a lot of its own stories. And for me, God will always come first, my family second, and coupons third. That's basically the order of my life. Somewhere in the list cleaning comes in, or at least I think it should...
So, now that you know a little bit about me, except my name, you probably want to know that...I'm Lyla by the way...here's hoping you'll stick around. I'll probably post a lot of deals here, and little ways to make money around the interwebz (yes, it really can be done without pyramid schemes!), and maybe even toss in a little story of my life on occasion. In the words of my two year old, "Les do it!" and "I cant wait!"
