addicted. ♥

Welcome to my world. 

Life and Random Rambling. . .

Hi everyone!

I know I haven't been posting much lately but I've been super busy. I don't have as much time to relax as I used to. Here's what has been going on in my life:

-I have a couple job interviews this week that I'm very excited about. I was babysitting my friend Brittany's son Adrian but I'm not doing that any more and we need money (doesn't everyone?!) so I'm going back to work. Say a prayer for me about those job interviews!!

-Our car isn't the newest and seems to have a new problem every couple months. Recently the brakes went out on it. They were grinding so loudly, you could hear it from 5 blocks away. Embarrassing!! We definitely didn't have the money to get them fixed at the moment between rent, the cell phone bill, gas, food, and other misc. bills, so my Grandma helped us out. My uncle is a mechanic and not only did he do the brakes, he also replaced a few other things and now our car is working great and it's safe again. Yay!! I'm so happy that my family could help us out because we couldn't have done it on our own.

-I told you guys that I sold my first article, and I'm still so excited about that. I'm currently working on a few more articles and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they'll be sold and published as well.

-Tom's brother and sister-in-law had their baby so we're now a first time aunt and uncle!! I love my nephew to pieces, he is the sweetest little boy ever.
our nephew, Jack Edward.

-We celebrated Lexi's 3rd birthday. I can't believe she's already 3. Where has the time gone!? She speaks in  complete sentences, she catches on to things so quickly and she is such a little girl with such a huge personality!! Here are some pics from her birthday party:

-I've still been keeping up with my workout routine but I don't want to say too much about that. I'll show you guys updated pics soon along with my workout routine/schedule/what I eat/etc.

Here are some other new random pics:

I sold my first article!!

I'm very proud to say that I sold my first article ever!! I've been writing since I can remember and saw a link to Constant Content on a survey website that I'm a member of. I was interested in selling some of my work so I decided to give it a try. I wrote a few articles and submitted them. The people in charge of the site will either accept it and list it or reject it and tell you to edit it. (There are certain things that they are extremely picky with, such as grammar, spelling, punctuation, not talking in the first person, etc.) If you have even one mistake they'll send it back to you, tell you what to fix, and then you have to edit it and resend it. Luckily the article I sold didn't have any errors so they listed it right away. Constant Content gives you 65% of the sale price and they take the rest, so you have to price your articles accordingly.

As you can see in the screen shot above, my article sold for $40. Not bad for an hour of work. ;) Now it's going to be published and I am very proud and excited to see what else this will bring. I'm currently working on a few other articles, and I just submitted another one last night. I'm crossing my fingers!! I'll keep everyone updated on what happens with that. :)

xo, Sarah

PS- The South Carolina trip video is edited and done, but I'm having a hard time posting it. I had to reformat it and I finally did that but now I'm getting error messages when I try to post it. Keep an eye out for that, I'll figure it out somehow and it'll be up eventually!! <3
