Working on ME!

Hey everyone! How are y’all doing?  I am doing good! It’s Saturday! YAY! I LOVE the weekends! Work is REALLY good, but who DOESN’T Love a good weekend!??!  I only work 4 days a week and STILL live for the weekends. HAHA! I love my job… I have learned so much, and continue to learn every day! I work with AMAZING ladies and the two dr’s are awesome too!

Lots of stuff going on around here! Jude and I moved home to my parents again temporairily. We were living in an apartment for about a year and a half… The last 6 months it got BAD. Maintenance was slacking, and new neighbors moved in above us… These guys were RIDICULOUS! Literally the loudest people I have EVER heard… And that is NOT an exaggeration.  They were loud ALL NIGHT and ALL DAY! THEN they get two dogs… OH EM GEE!!!! They got worse! We complained.. A LOT. The apartment complex didn’t care.. We eventually found someone to sublease from us, so we got out FAST! So, now we are back at the parents house until we find a better place! Jude is LOVING Being back at Nana and Papa’s. LOL! Since Dad retired, Jude has a full time play mate. HAHAHAHAH!

Other things going on… Scentsy… It’s so fun, and so good! This Fall/Winter, I believe my team is going to BLOW IT OUT OF THE WATER!!!!  There are so many Amazing things happening this year!  The new catalog is TO.DIE.FOR! SO many cute new products! YOU NEED TO SEE IT!  You DEFINITELY need to join my Scentsy team and see what is going on!! Did you know if you join in AUGUST you get an ENAHNCED SUPER SIZE KIT!??  Well you do! I currently have a team of 40, with two reinstating next month, I believe, and I know we will grow even more than that in August for sure! Will YOU Be one of them??? Let me give you another reason to join my team…. AUGUST STARTS THE QUALIFICATION PERIOD FOR THE INCENTIVE TRIPS!  Wanna know where we’re going if we earn????? It’s 5 levels… You can earn Scentsy family reunion next Summer… Kansas City, MO… OR Punta Cana, Dominacan Republic…. OR the Top 100 earners can go to…… AN AFRICAN SAFARI!! OH.EM.GEE! WHAT!???!!  Any of those appeal to you??? Hop on over to my website and click JOIN! You may wanna wait until MONDAY tho to get the SUPERSIZE KIT!  You can go to my site HERE

In Other news… Jude and I started Swimming lessons a few weeks ago! LOL! YES… You read that right… BOTH of us.. Swimming Lessons!  I found this INCREDIBLE lady who teaches in her backyard. We have private lessons… Jude usually goes first, then I go.  HAHA! We are having the BEST time! And do you know how empowering it is to learn something you have ALWAYS wanted to learn and have never been able to before?????  WOW! I feel AWESOME everytime I am done!😛  May sound really stupid to some of you… Most people learn to swim as children. Well I didn’t. So, I am learning now.  It is NEVER too late to learn something new!!! Our swim instructor told me she can help me with the motions and learning HOW to do it, but she can’t teach my brain and stop it from being scared…. I made a decision before we even went to her that I was going to learn and I wasn’t going to let fear stand in my way. I didn’t… And I have done “swimmingly”.. BAHAHAHAHAHAH!😀  Is there something you’ve always wanted to do but have been scared?? Fight past it and GO FOR IT!  You will be amazed at how you feel when you do it!  I know I do!

I am currently growing my hair out from the buzz cut… It is interesting. LOL!  Sometimes I just have to laugh when I look in the mirror. LOL!!! I watched a lot of videos before deciding to shave my head…. And the women who did it all said the biggest con to shaving their head was the growing out phase…THEY WERE RIGHT! WHEW! My hair has kinda been sticking out EVERYWHERE!!! It is actually growing out pretty good right now, it’s getting longer and laying flat in SOME places. HAHA!😀 It’s been a lot of fun, and I can’t wait to change it up and do something new!! I haven’t dyed my hair at all since I shaved it, and man oh man is my white shining… I HAVE A LOT OF WHITE/SILVER HAIR! EEEEEEEK!

myface

The lipstick used in this pic is AWESOME! It’s the NYX Ombre Lip Duo in Poppy & Lilly! This picture was taken at about 1:30pm…. I put that lip duo on at 830am! I had been drinking my water all morning, plus had lunch and it was STILL on! SO AWESOME!!!!I also used the NYX Setting Spray.. IT IS SO GOOD! Definitely check those out!!!!!

One last thing…. My son turned SIX last week! SIX!!!! Is that unbelievable or what?!?  I can’t believe my baby is growing up! He had a BIG Birthday party… It was crazy!!! I brought 8 Large Pizzas and they were gone in minutes! Little Ceasers has really stepped up their game lately! Those pizzas were GOOD!  Jude got lots of Legos, Nerf Guns, video games, and so much more! We had SO much fun!! Anyways!

I guess that’s all for now! I hope y’all enjoyed this post!!! And I hope y’all consider joining my Scentsy team! We really do have a BLAST!!! You’ll be added to our Scentsy team page, and have access to a lot of info, ideas, advice, and encouragement!

I Did It!

Well, if you read my last post, you’ll already know what I am going to post about!🙂

In my last post I talked about shaving my head. Today, I did it!🙂  We left a little longer in front, but not much. IT.IS.SHORT!! I had a lot of feedback on Facebook when I posted about it last week. Some was really positive, and others were telling me not to do it. LOL! My hair can be quite controversial. LOL! Just kidding. But just lots of people weighing in. If you know me, you know I don’t do my hair for anyone but me.

So I posted pics on my Facebook… I’ve had people telling me it looks great, etc.  Some may not comment, maybe because they don’t like it.. ??  I don’t know.. And to be honest, I don’t care. At all.  I feel GOOD!!!!! REALLY GOOD! As soon as my hair came off, I felt good! Liberated! Happy!! Hair defines who I am. I know people that don’t feel that way would never understand it, but it does.  I LOVE MY HAIR. And I love doing what I want to do with it.  Changing it up. Doing something different.  Especially things that I know a lot of other people would NEVER do. Whether because they don’t like it, or because they were too scared. Well.. I DID IT. And I don’t regret it one bit.

This evening, my son and I went to United to buy a few groceries. I walked in with my head held high.. I FELT AWESOME. And guess what?  People looked at me. LOTS of people looked at me. I grinned. And guess what they did? They grinned back! HAHA! I actually am not sure if I’ve ever felt THIS confident in my life. Honestly. Isn’t that weird?! HAHA!

So, whether you like my hair buzzed or not, just know, I REALLY, REALLY don’t care. HAHA! I like it. My son likes it. And that’s literally all that matters to me.

Why Should We Care?

Hey everyone! WHY DO I SUCK AT UPDATING THIS THING!??  I guess I am just toooo busy.. Yeah, that’s it. LOL!

So… I’ve been thinking a lot lately about my hair, and needing a change.. Right now I have one side partially shaved and the other side is longer. It’s incredibly cute, but I’m over it. Everyone that knows me, knows I like changing it up A LOT.. And knows I go for SHOCK VALUE. HAHA! So, I went with my best friend and her daughter yesterday to the salon and her daughter cut ALL of her hair off! MAJOR difference and she looks ADORABLE! I absolutely LOVE it! So…. I am ready for a change. A big one… Something I have been thinking about for a very long time and have joked about for AGES.  It’s now time to do it. Just go for it.  No matter what everyone else says.😛 Which brings me to my main thoughts here….

WHY THE HECK DO WE CARE WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK!??????  I used to. I used to care WAY TO MUCH! But now, I HONESTLY don’t care what others think about me… Especially my hair.  But the funny thing is.. EVERYONE always tells me not to do a certain look, but 9 times out of 10 when I go for it, the majority of people LOVE it.  Or at least LIKE it. LOL! But seriously… What is it in us that makes us CARE what other people think about how we look? Here’s a thought for y’all….. Regarding my hair… LOL! If you don’t like it, don’t look at it. My hair grows SO incredibly fast, it’s seriously INSANE!!!! I get my hair cut every 3-4 weeks.

So…… What I am wanting…. A buzz cut. I want to shave it all off! How fun would that be?!  I already have part of my head shaved. Why not go all the way? This is me now…….

stage

See how that one side is shaved? I was thinking about it and I had a PRETTY CLOSE buzz cut back in 2009….

FAUX

I LOVED That cut… Of course, the guy I was dating hated it, and my family hated it… But since when do I cut my hair for others? Never. HAHA!

 

I honestly just think that we shouldn’t care what people think.  I am not harming myself. I am not harming others. I like being a little bit different… And doing things with my hair that is a little daring… a little weird… something that others would NEVER do.  I don’t know that I have ANY friends or family members that would do this. And to me, it’s fun. HAHA! I’ve been looking at pictures and watching videos….. the more I think about it and the more I watch, the more I want to do it.  Be on the look out.. by the end of the week… I’ll keep y’all posted.😀

And let’s ALL do something we’ve always wanted to do, but have been WAY too scared to do because we’re scared of what people will think! AND….. Go!

Here I am

Hello There! How are y’all doing??!  I am doing GREAT!  Right now I am enjoying some awesome Mommy time… Watching Drop Dead Diva, eating chips and hot sauce, and browsing Facebook, Playing Mahjong, etc. LOL!!!!! Yes, I am a great multi-tasker! HA! Jude didn’t go to sleep until almost 11pm so I needed a little time to  myself, or else I’d be SOUND ASLEEP!😛

Things here are going good! I seriously have THE BEST JOB EVER!!!  I’ve been there for a little over a month, and I am LOVING it!  The ladies I work with are so much fun, the dr’s awesome, and the patients are so incredibly sweet! I am learning SO much and considering getting CERTIFIED! WOOT! Jude and I are ABSOLUTELY loving me being off on Friday’s!!!!!  We don’t do anything big or important….. We just REALLY enjoy being together! It is so much fun!!!!  We are hoping to take a little over night trip soon!😀

I got a massage today and man oh man did I need it!!!  It’s been quite awhile since I had one and I have been in so much pain lately!!!! I laid in bed all day yesterday and most of today… It feels better, but now I have a headache! BLEH!!!

ANYWAYS!

Ya know how there are all kinds of monthly subscription deals? Birchbox, Ipsy, etc?  Well, I found another that I am SO insanely excited about!  It’s called SCENTBIRD!  You pay $14.95 a month… You take a test on their site and they give some recommendations… But you choose the scents you want and put them in your “queue”… Then they send you a 30 day trial of the scents you choose…. One per month! I am all signed up and I can’t wait to get my first one!!!!  Use my link to sign up https://www.scentbird.com/r/d/sherilyncrutchfield2  We can get FREE perfume! WHO DOESN’T LOVE THAT!??!?  I LOVE NEW PERFUME!!!!!!! Hopefully I’ll remember to keep y’all posted on it. LOL!😀 Y’all know I always forget!

Anyways! It’s almost 1am and I am SLEEPY!!!!!  Night, Night guys!

It’s About Dang Time!

Hey guys! What’s going on???  I am just over at my parents doing laundry and waiting for BURGERS!!! Saturdays are Burgers nights at Mom and Dad’s!  Today has been an uneventful day! Jude and I laid around….  He played his Wii U that Santa brought him, and I was SUPER LAZY!!! I finally got up and got ready and we went to Wal*Mart and returned a comforter I bought that was the wrong color.. Then we ran to the office then to TARGET!😀 We can ALWAYS Find things to buy at Target! LOL! Jude found a little laser gun in the Dollar section… I bought a NYX Liquid Lipstick and Neutrogena Make up remover wipes.

Lots of big changes have been happening around here.  Yesterday was my last day at Coldwell Banker Realtors!!!!!  On to a new journey, and this one was totally placed  before me by God, I have no doubt in my mind!!! I’m back in the medical field, Friday’s off, scrubs  and tennis shoes, benefits….. Ahhhhhhhh!!!  Jude and I have prayed EVERY NIGHT for quite a long time for this! I was getting frustrated and discouraged.  And then this came up! Jude and I couldn’t be happier!  We have claimed 2016 to be OUR YEAR!!

I have decided to change up some things in my diet… I am currently on DAY 3 of NO COKES OF ANY KIND! For anyone not from the South, we call ALL forms of soft drinks, cokes.  My preference is Dr Pepper and I drink a RIDICULOUS amount of dr pepper a day.. I LOVE IT! But I am gaining weight.. Bloated… And just don’t feel good.  So we’ll see.. To add to this, I am always going Gluten Free to see if this helps me some as well.. I am currently two days Gluten free… Well, I did have a small piece of cake yesterday at my office for my going away party! LOL!

Scentsy Business is going pretty well… I need to kick it up a few notches though. This year we could earn Nashville for Scentsy Family Reunion, or a FAMILY TRIP TO DISNEY WORLD!  I swore I was going to earn Disney, then found out all the qualifications and decided there was no way I could earn it. I TOTALLY self sabotaged it. I am REALLY sad that I allowed myself to think that way. I probably could have earned it had I changed my mindset and worked my booty off! Now that means I have to save and take Jude by myself.. A LOT MORE EXPENSIVE! EEEEEEEEEK! Other than that, Scentsy is going great and I am still loving it just as much as ever!  We got a sneak peek of the new Spring/Summer Catalog that comes out March 1st and man oh man!! IT IS GOOD!!! I get my catalogs and testers this week, probably Tuesday. I can’t wait to smell all the new scents! There are a whole lot more brand new scents this time and I have heard they’re AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just so you know, Joining Scentsy this month will be the BEST decision you could  EVER make! You’d get an ENHANCED Starter kit for the same price as the regular one!  You’ll get everything you’d normally get and they add in the Spring and Summer Testers and catalogs! WOOT WOOT! Join my team today! I can pretty much guarantee that you WILL NOT REGRET IT!!!! WE have SO MUCH FUN!!!! Just click HERE

Check out everything you’ll get *some items vary*

starter

I watch a lot of YouTube videos about make up tutorials, make up hauls etc. They’ve been talking a lot about a brand Colour Pop.  They are great, cheap products, supposedly.  I ordered some the other day and they’ll be here this week! WOOT!😀 I’ll do another post when I get them in! I am so excited!

Anyways! So this is what’s up with us these days! What’s going on with all of y’all??? I hope y’all are doing well!!!

Have Y’all Forgotten About Me?

WOW!!!! I said last time that I would write more… LOL!! Yeah.. I believe this is the longest I’ve gone without blogging!!!!  Crazy!!!!! Sorry ’bout that! I am sure you’re ALL so happy to see a post from me…. Right!?😀

Anyways… The Summer is almost over.. And boy am I glad.  I am so freaking ready for Fall!! Hoodies, jeans, boots, big fat socks…. And DARK lipsticks and major smoky eye looks! Not that I don’t wear the smokey eye year round, but I like to go a little darker in the Fall/Winter months!🙂  Speaking of the Smoky eye…. I just bought a new product that will make my smoky eye AMAZING! LOL!!  Well, to me it will… I bought the Tarte Tarteist Clay Paint Liner.. OMG!  It is Amazeballs.. Truly. This liner goes on BLACK… and MATTE… and doesn’t budge! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!

Tarte

If you  love a good winged eyeliner, or just a black matte… THIS IS THE BEST ONE EVER!!!! Get it! You WILL NOT regret it!

This Summer was pretty uneventful.. Besides my trip to LAS VEGAS… that was TOTALLY free!🙂  I did a 5K, saw ONE REPUBLIC, got a TON of free product.. did the DIRECTOR walk for the first time.. Oh my goodness! It was AWESOME and I made some AMAZING new friends!!!!!!!  None of this would have been possible if I hadn’t joined Scentsy in 2012. This has turned out to be one of the BEST decisions I have EVER made!  Here are just a few pics of my AMAZING trip!

stage GLOW GLOW2 GLOW3 MEANDTHOMPSONS Ryan Tedder

So there ya go!🙂  One Republic is AMAZING in concert! I knew they would be though! I LOVE them!!!!  And I was SO SO SO close!!!   AAAAUUUUUGGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!

We found out our next Incentive trip is DISNEY WORLD or the next Scentsy Family Reunion in NASHVILLE TENNESSEE!!! SCENTSY SPOILS US SO SO MUCH! AUGH!  So right now, I am busy busy working my business to get a trip!🙂   If you haven’t joined Scentsy yet, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR!???!  You are TRULY missing out!!!!

Not a lot of other stuff happening around here… I dated someone for the first time in over 5 years.. That was a lot of fun… Hurt like hell when it ended… Makes me NOT want to try that again. LOL!!!!  I forgot how bad it hurts when you like someone and put everything into it, and they don’t… It really sucks. So it will be awhile before I try that again. HAHA! It did remind me of how fun dating is… How fun it is to have something to look forward to.. We went to movies, got ice cream, rented movies, etc.  We DID have a blast. It also kind of gave me my identity back…  As a Mom it’s REALLY easy to lose yourself with your kiddos.  I put my son first above EVERYTHING else in my life.. Which is how it’s supposed to be, but I am also a woman.. I am not dead just because I am a Mom.  So, now I take time to do what I want, too.. My son has an earlier bed time, and I get to watch movies, soak in the tub, paint my nails, work my Scentsy Business, shop online.. LOL!😛 So, all in all, I guess dating again WASN’T such a bad thing.. HAHA!

Anyways…

I have become a total Netflix Junkie. LOL!!!!  I watched Parks and Rec… OMG! I watched all 7 seasons in about 3 weeks. LOL!!!! I was 100% team Ron Swanson. LOL!!! SO.FREAKING.HILARIOUS!  Luckily with my job, I can multi task.. So while I work, I watch my shows. HAHA! I finished Parks and Rec and had nothing else to watch.. I LOVED that show so much… I tried a few others, but nothing caught my attention… So then I tried SCANDAL… OH MY GOSH! Now I am totally hooked.  I am half way thru Season 4.. This show is CRAZY good! LOL!! At this rate, I’ll be all caught up for Thursday!🙂

Lately I’ve been sending out cards… Just little blank cards that I write in and send to random people….  I LOVE snail mail SO much! I remember my cousins, or old friends and I used to write letters to each other… The Anticipation of getting something.. And when you finally do… AAAAAHHHHH! It just FEELS good to be thought of… Am I right? So, if someone is on my heart, I send out a card. Makes me feel good.   I KNOW how it feels to get a card unepectedly in the mail… So I love giving other people that same feeling!🙂  Who doesn’t like to get something other than bills in the mail!?

That’s about all that’s going on around here….  I AM a pretty boring person. LOL!🙂 But you guys already knew that!  HAHA! Well… there ya go.  There’s my life lately… LOTSA FUN, huh!?  Guess I’d better go… I hope y’all have a FABULOUS evening!!!

Want to buy some Scentsy!?  Or Join? Or Host a party!?  You definitely should.  Just click HERE

Over 2 Months Is TOO Long!

Hey everyone! How’s it going? Everything is going GREAT here! I’m getting Jude ready for bed and then  I have work to do! Jude is usually such a night owl, but I have to go back to work tomorrow, so we have to get up early.
I’ve basically been off work for two weeks. Haha! The week of Christmas, I worked just that Monday, then had the rest of the week off. The next week I worked Monday, then got off at noon Tuesday.🙂 We had a lot of ice, sleet, rain etc… we ended up getting the rest of the week off! WOW! It was SO nice spending so much time with Jude!!
Speaking of Christmas, it was awesome! We had a wonderful Christmas! Jude got a ton of awesome gifts! I got plenty of money and giftcards! I LOVE Christmas with our family!!!!!!!
New Years Eve was no big deal. Jude and I shopped some, then that night we went to our friends house and ate and watched “When the Game Stands Tall”!! It was SO SO good! If you haven’t seen it yet, you definitely need to! New Years Day we all ate dinner at Mom’s. She made Chicken fried Chicken, and Chicken Fried Steak with all the trimmings.🙂 Mashed potatoes, rolls, and of course black eyed peas, cabbage, and spinach.🙂 It was DELICIOUS!!!!
Kelbey and Jude also made Gingerbread houses with mom and my sis….
