BUCKET LIST ITEM CHECKED OFF!

Hey there peeps! What’s going on?? I am currently watching THE PROPOSAL and eating Macaroni Salad. HEHE!

Don’t you hate Sunday nights??! KNOWING you have to wake up the next morning and start the week all over again?  I have a GREAT job, but I would still rather stay home. LOL! 😀 And I get a Three day weekend EVERY WEEK! I guess we’re never REALLY happy with what we have, are we? LOL!!!

Well this weekend was one for the books! Man Oh Man!!!!!!! Okay, let me start by saying… We got word Garth Brooks was coming to Lubbock. He hasn’t been here in like 25 years. I have loved Garth since I was a kid…. LOVED HIM! I remember in 6th grade, calling Rick Gilbert at KLLL 96.3 and requesting “Friends in Low Places” EVERY SINGLE WEEK DAY at Noon STRAIGHT UP for their request lunch hour. LOL!!! EVERY DAY. No lie! I recently got the chance to tell Rick that story. HEHE! 😀 Man I was a dork. But I freaking LOVED that song!!!!! I never in a million years would have dreamed I’d see Garth Live! So they announce he’s coming… Tickets are like $75 or so. I JOKINGLY posted on Facebook that I needed someone to take me to the concert! 😛 Well, one of my friends commented that they were getting tickets, and that I could go with them. I knew I HAD to get a ticket….. Well, tickets go on sale.. I text my friend and I asked ifthey got tickets, because I was going to try to get some money together to go…… She never replied! (JERK!) HAHA! THEN that night, a Scentsy Star Director I’ve met at Scentsy Family Reunion, texted me. It was a video… She told me in the video she’d messaged my friend and bought me a ticket! OMG!!!! I WAS GOING TO GARTH!!!  SAY WHAAA?!??!?!??!?! AAAUUUGGHHHHHH!!!!!!! I cried like a baby! Then Jude cried too, because he was happy for me, but sad he couldn’t go! HAHAHAHAHAH! 😀 I also received a message from my Super STar Director, who was also in on this! AND another director I don’t even know and I’ve never met! WHAT IN THE WORLD!??!? These ladies went in and helped me mark off an item on my bucket list! ALL beause they thought I deserved it! Y’all! These are not people I hang out with on a daily basis.. These are fellow #bossbabes Leaders in this awesome Wickless Candle Biz… Had I not ever joined this company, I’d never have met them! I am thankful EVERY SINGLE DAY for this company and my business!!!!!!!!!

Here’s some pictures of the concert! Garth puts on one heck of a show! And he did a total of 5 here since Thursday!

This is a shirt my friend made for me JUST in time for the concert!!! Is that cute or what?! And, I do have to say, my highlight was ON POINT! HAHA!

My pictures aren’t that great, but it was seriously THE most amazing concert EVER!!! He was so fun, and funny, and looks like he absolutely LOVES what he does!!!!!! If you ever get a chance, GO!!!! It was so much fun!!!! 😀 My friends I went with are so fun too!! Carrie and I laughed and yelled and sang! It was a freaking BLAST!!!!!

I’ve always LOVED music. I remember growing up loving music, always listening to music, ALWAYS. When I did homework, while I slept, while I skated down the street. Music has a way of bringing back memories, a lot like scent does! SO MANY SONGS bring back memories… Some good. Some bad. But music makes me cry more than anything else. First, I cried when he came out, just because… DUH! It’s Garth! AUGH! He’s a LEGEND! Then just some songs hit me and make me cry. I can’t help it. LOL! I get made fun of all the time for crying over ridiculous things. But, I don’t care. LOL! I’ll cry all day everyday, if I want to! 😛

Anyways! Can you believe it’s APRIL!???!! I mean, REALLY! Where does the time go!? April 2nd! CRAZY! My sister posted a meme today that said “It’s April.. Can I put my tree up yet?” HAHAHAHA! OF course I said YES! It’s ALWAYS a good time to put up the Christmas tree! HA! But also makes me realize, it will be Christmas before we know it! It’s gonna keep flying by! I am ready for SUMMER though! I LOVE Summer! I am ready for WARM WEATHER! We were having GREAT weather.. 70’s and 80’s.. Then the past few days, it’s been COLD and WET! Like 40’s and 50’s! What the heck!? LOL!!!!!

So Beauty and The Beast came out a few weeks ago…. I took my niece opening weekend. OH.EM.GEE!!!! BEST MOVIE EVER!!!!! Have you seen it!? If not, you are missing out! GO SEE THIS MOVIE!!! IT IS SO GOOD!!!!!!! My niece and I had so much fun!!! The movie is amazing… My niece put it best.. It was MESMERIZING! The colors and graphics and songs.. ALL SO MUCH FUN! I bought the soundtrack.. I love the new added songs.. It’s just THE BEST! I took my son the next week… I loved it, he did not.. And I may go see it a 3rd time. HAHA! It’s THAT Good to me!!!!! Beauty and the Beast was always my FAVORITE Disney movie and this did not disappoint at all!!!!!! GO SEE IT!

Anyways! I guess that’s about it for now! I hope y’all have a FABULOUS week!

Scentsy, St. Louis, Train, and MORE!

Hey Everyone!!!   Well, this post is long over due! But I’m freaking busy! LOL!!  Going out of town is GREAT, but coming back to work is HARD and ALMOST not worth it!  I’m still not 100% caught up! It’s CRAZY!

Before I get to the trip, I HAVE to tell you about the BIGGEST SALE EVER!  Grace Adele is discontinuing, so they’ve marked everything down to 80% off… These prices are seriously RIDICULOUS!!!  Bags for as low as $16, clutches for $8, wallets for $7…  CRAZY!!!!!!!  You need to get over to the website and check it out!  Click here… SALE Trust me, you don’t want to miss out on these deals!!!!!!  I LOVE the Grace Adele bags and clutches I have now..  They are BEAUTIFUL and great quality!  I always get compliments on my purses!!!! Wednesday they are bringing out what was supposed to be for FALL/WINTER….. And let me tell you… IT IS ALL BEAUTIFUL!  This stuff won’t be 80% off, but it WILL Be 50% off!!!  So there are some GREAT deals!

ANYWAYS… Let’s get on to the GOOD STUFF!!! 🙂

So I earned an incentive trip for one.. I was given the choice between the Bahamas and Scentsy Family Reunion… Well, I KNEW I didn’t want to miss out on SFR this year because it was the 10 year reunion, and I’d heard it was going to be H U G E!  Last year I spent over $1,000 on SFR with flight, hotel, food, etc.. SO, this year I got it all for F R E E!!!!!!!!!  You honestly can’t beat that!  Scentsy booked my travel and hotel room and everything PLUS put money on my Scentsy card to cover baggage fees and all food! HELLO!!!!!!!!  You just can’t beat that, can ya!?

So July 8th I flew out of Lubbock and headed to St. Louis Missouri! When we got there, there was a table set up for all incentive earners to schedule a shuttle… So I added my name to the list… Waited maybe 10 minutes and a huge bus showed up and took us to our hotels… Some of us were at Lumiere Hotel & Casino, and a few others were at the Four Seasons, but they were connected so that’s good..

20140708_153524

 

We got to the hotel, checked in, and got ready, then headed over to the convention center to check in and get our lanyards and FREEBIES! 🙂  Incentive earners got a bag, a shirt, a pen and book, and Scentsy Clean LAundry stuff! WE ARE SO SPOILED! 🙂 🙂 Then we went in and talked to everyone, hung out, then it was time to have our opening ceremonies with Heidi & Orville, and SARA BARELLIS!!!!!  AAAAUUUUUGGGGGHHHHH!! It was SO awesome!  She is GREAT in concert! We were on the fourth row!!!  It was so great! 🙂 🙂  My director and some friends actually got to meet her later that night!!! HOW FUN IS THAT?!

So the next day was the 5K which I DID NOT Participate in! HAHA! I slept in, which was WONDERFUL! My bed was SUPER comfy!  All the Incentive Earners had lunch at the FOUR SEASONS with Heidi & Orville and all of the AUSTRALIAN earners!  It was a WONDERFUL lunch!  Salad, several kinds of bread, veggies, potatoes, parmesean crusted chicken, steak… It was DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lunch was wonderful, the company was wonderful.. It was awesome! 🙂 🙂  After that I believe I went to the Scentsy store to shop.. I can’t remember. LOL! 🙂  But then we went back to our hotel rooms to get ready for the TRUE opening ceremonies!!!!! IT.WAS.AWESOME! 🙂 But to get in… the line was RIDICULOUS!!!!!!!!!!!

20140709_175426

What do you do when you wait in line?!  TAKE SELFIES OF COURSE! DUH! 🙂

This is me, my sponsor and my roomie.. She’s from New York! 🙂

20140709_172840

 

We finally made it in! WHEW!!!!!!!  We’d texted our director while in line & said to be sure to save seats for us, because they always get the best seats, and I wanted to be UP CLOSE & PERSONAL for what was to come… Not only was it opening ceremonies for EVERYONE….. BUT, it was also a concert.. With one of my FAVORITE bands…. T R A I N! AAAAUUUUUGGGGGGHHHHHH!!! I ABSOLUTELY Love them and I was dying to get up close!  So.. Sure enough, we were on the SECOND ROW! EEEEEK! Man, I was STOKED!

20140709_201826

Heidi and Orville talked about all the GREAT new products coming out in September.. That was a BLAST, of course, PLUS they passed out mini testers of the new scents! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK!  We FREAKED OUT about that! LOL! 🙂  I would have taken pics of it, but I was saving my battery for the concert! HAHA!   THEN… The lights went out…. And we saw just a light, and a train whistle… I thought I was gonna die. HAHA!!20140709_204000

THEN…..  Pat came out into the crowd……  Said get your cell phones ready and we’d take some selfies.. UMMMMM WHAT?!??!?  Well there was a crowd right at the stage.. I told my sponsor there was NO way I’d be able to get up there… She said to try and go for it.. SO I DID!!!!!!!!  EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK! Check this out….

20140709_210329

It’s CRAZY blurry because he actually TOOK the phone from me and took it kind of as he was walking! BUT THERE IT IS! And you can tell it’s him! 🙂 I was in LA LA Land after that! HAHA! I told Traci no way would she be able to pull me down to Earth! LOL!  Seriously! 🙂 It was amazing! I am sure all of y’all are freaking out. HAHA! 🙂  I was! He’s so cute!!!! Too bad he’s married! HA! 🙂  I say that like I had a chance with him or something! HAHA!

20140709_214645

Anyways! 🙂 🙂

So Thursday morning started with Heidi’s keynote speech… And if you’ve ever heard her talk, you’ve been inspired.. I can guarantee that! SHE IS SO AWESOME!!! THEN… They bring out a guest speaker.  Someone I’ve never heard of.. John O’Leary.. OMG! This man is an AMAZING MAN!  If you haven’t heard his story, PLEASE watch a video! Go to Youtube! HE IS AWESOME!  He’s been through more than most people will EVER go through, and his story is SO Awesome, and he’s SO incredibly motivating!   I was VERY blessed by his story!!!

The rest of the day, we had BREAK OUT SESSIONS…..  They got consultants to lead sessions learning about certain topics! I think I did four that day…..  Some of them were REALLY good, and I learned a lot!!!!!!  That night…….. AMAZING!!  We got “room drops” which is where the Incentive earners get a gift in their room every day… Wednesday it was St Louis Baseball hats, peanuts, and crackerjacks for the game they were taking us to on Thursday night! EEEEEEEEEEEEEK

20140710_082226

Now, I normally don’t wear hats….  I look like a dude in a hat. LOL! BUT.. This was a trip! Going to a GAME! I HAD TO!  I also bought a shirt earlier that day! 🙂

SO AWESOME to actually go to a MLB game!  It was awesome, and the park was GINORMOUS! We stayed until about the 5th inning, then Traci and I left and went to get some dinner.  We ate dinner and played at the Casino. HAHA! 🙂  We had a BLAST!!!!  We didn’t end up winning.. We just played slots, and every time we won, we just kept playing, but boy was it FUN!!!! 🙂 🙂

Friday was the last day…  We had consultants speak, and of course, Orville’s Keynote speech… If you think Heidi is inspiring, man you should hear Orville!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  HE.WAS.AWESOME!!! It was a wonderful day!!!  Then… That night…. It was the closing sessions and award ceremonies.. It was a lot of fun!

20140711_174110

After the awards was our guest for the evening……..  COMEDIAN JIM GAFFIGAN! AUGH!  That man is HYSTERICAL!  🙂  And he’s CLEAN! AHHH!! I laughed so hard!!!

Saturday was leaving day… UNFORTUNATELY, the didn’t have me leaving until 635pm! AUGH!  There was nothing to do! So… Traci left at 12:30 so I hung out at the hotel, played slots in the casino, and read until I could take a shuttle to the airport! 🙂

Road Trip, Dreams Coming True, and Good food! :)

HEY EVERYONE!!

It’s been awhile! SORRY!!! I’ve been BUSY!!!!!  Working Full Time, plus a home business, plus a 3.5 year old… It gets BUSY!! LOL!  This weekend I went to Fort Worth with one of my dear friends, and also one of my downline in the Scentsy Family!  We went for SCENTSY SPRING SPRINT!!!  We left Friday late morning, and got there at 4.  We stayed with some friends of hers. When we got there, we went got ready and went out to Yucatan Taco Stand! It was delicious!  We got a RIDICULOUS amount of food… We got Fried Plantains for our appetizer, we each got one taco, and then we split their nachos…. IT WAS A GINORMOUS PLATE OF NACHOS! LOL!!!!  It was CRAZY Delicious!!!  Saturday we got up early and went to SPRING SPRINT at the Fort Worth Convention center!  WOOOOO HOOOOO! 🙂 Okay, so the owners of Scentsy have been going to random Sprints the past two weeks… No one knows which one they’ll be at, they just show up.  I was SO hoping they’d be at ours, but kinda doubted they would be.  I’ve been DYING to meet them since last convention….  I was guaranteed I’d meet them this year at convention.. But I didn’t have to wait until then…. We walked upstairs to where Sprint was and I saw them AS SOON as we got up there!! EEEEEEEEK! I nearly died.. and cried! LOL!  My poor dear friend. LOL! She was just like “seriously?” So we checked in and got in line to meet them.  The line was long, and I was worried we wouldn’t get to meet them before it started! BUT WE DID!! Hugged them, introduced ourselves, and got a picture…

DREAM!

Is that a GREAT pic or what!?  EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK! SUCH A dream come true! AUGH!

Anyways.. M and I had a good day.  Went to a Velata break out session and learned A LOT about that branch of Scentsy Family… I of course came home & joined! WOOT! I now sell ALL THREE BRANDS! BOOM! I’ll talk about that later! Anyways….

After Spring Sprint, we went and ate at Spring Creek.. BBQ in Burleson! It was REALLY, REALLY good!   We came home Sunday, and I was glad to be home to see my Boy!!!  But it honestly was good to get out of town and have some girl time! 🙂

Anyways… VELATA! Have you heard of it!?  It’s a GREAT, GREAT Brand!  You MUST check it out! Go look at my website by clicking HERE

Velata is FUN! It’s ALL About bringing families together!

FALL IS HERE!!!

Hey guys! What’s going on?? I am watching tv and being a bum. 🙂 That’s always fun, right?

Can you believe it’s FINALLY FALL!?!?!?!?!  I can’t! 🙂  It seems like EVERY year, I get more and more excited about Fall!  You can tell it’s Fall because the mornings are cooler! It’s AWESOME! It’s been in the 70’s and 80’s lately.. except today, it’s 90! LOL! You can also tell it’s Fall because Scentsy is coming out with AMAZING Fall scents, and warmers!  The October Scent of the month is CIDER MILL… I.LOVE.IT. Seriously goodness!!!!! Read this description….  Come in from the cold and wrap your hands around a mug of steaming apple cider. Cider Mill brings together fresh apples, crushed pumpkin, and simmering spices for a cozy autumn treat. Does that sound like Fall or what?! It’s AMAZING!  If you’d like a sample, feel free to comment and let me know! 🙂

Even better than the scent, is the Warmer of the month… OH.MY.GOSH…. EVERYONE who has seen this so far, has LOVED It! I’ve got two sold so far and it’s not even available until Tuesday.

scarecrow

SERIOUSLY!  Is that Adorable or what?!?!?!   If you love Fall, and you love to decorate for Fall, this is MOST DEFINITELY the Warmer for you! AUGH!   I just love him so much! LOL!

Some of my other favorite Fall Scents are Honey Pear Cider, Snowberry, Cinnamon Bear, Autumn Sunset, and Mandarin Moon!! They are just delicious!  Need to place an order?  PLEASE Do! Just order HERE

Another way I know Fall is here?  THE SOUTH PLAINS FAIR IS HERE!!! WAAAAHHHHOOOOOO! I am SO Excited!!! Our entire family goes together EVERY year!  We pick one day, all take off work, and go spend the day! 🙂  It’s SO much fun, and I can’t wait to go!  Fair Food is the Best!!!!! 🙂  We all love the Strawberry Lemonade! It’s got WAY too much sugar in it, but it’s delicious! I also love fried pickles, funnel Cake, corn dogs, cotton candy… WHEW! It’s going to ROCK!

Anyways!

I’ve been watching A LOT of “Finding Nemo” lately! LOL!  I always said this is one movie I’d never let Jude watch.. Because it annoyed the crap outta me.. It could POSSIBLY be because I’ve had people say Dory reminds them of me. LOL!  HMPH! But.. IT’s really not a bad movie.. Actually pretty funny and cute.  Jude LOVES it now! We watch it ALL the time.. HE loves “Emo”. HAHAHA!

FindingNemo

We’ve been having REVIVAL at our church the past few days, and it’s REALLY good!!!!! Tonight is the last night, and I am actually pretty sad about it!  It’s great to get the Word DURING the week too, instead of just Sundays!

Today at work I was making packets in the supply closet because I was slow with my other work.  I took my phone in there and played the Rend Collective Experiment CD, Campfire.  MAN!  I know I talked about them in the last post, but SERIOUSLY… THAT WHOLE CD IS AMAZING!  I am telling you what! I was having my own worship time in there!! Everyone else was at lunch and I was dancing and singing and praising Jesus! 🙂  I absolutely LOVE every single song on that album!  I need to hear more! Y’all need to go RIGHT now to iTunes and buy that Album…. N O W! You’ll thank me for it, I promise! Usually with most CD’s, there are a few songs I don’t like as much, but I can honestly say I LOVE every single song! Buy it, and then let me know what you think! 🙂

Campfire

 

Well, I guess that’s about it for now! 🙂  I am going to get ready to head to Revival! Have a SUPER night!

I HAVE BEEN BUSY!!!!! I had to get stuff together, sell some Scentsy, work, take care of my son.. and then.. FINALLY… I WENT TO THE SCENTSY FAMILY REUNION!!! 🙂  WOW!!!!!!!  Since I joined last year, all I have heard is how amazing it is and that I MUST go. I went to Spring Sprint in February of this year and got the “bug” to go! I registered THAT afternoon! LOL! As soon as I got home, I got on my computer and signed up! I already had a roommate! 🙂  I had to sign up then because if I didn’t, I wouldn’t be able to go to Heidi’s Big Birthday Bash! I didn’t know any details, I only knew I couldn’t miss it! SFR was set to be in INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA at Lucas Oil Stadium and the Convention Center!  It was pretty Amazing being in LUCAS OIL STADIUM! When I was married, I watched A LOT of Football with my then husband. I HATE IT NOW. LOL! But when I watched it, I rooted for the COLTS!! ALWAYS!!!

I had an amazing time this week!! Three whole days of JUST Scentsy!! 😀  I missed Jude like CRAZY… It was my very first time leaving him and it was CRAZY HARD! But I knew I NEEDED This for my business!! They’ve run the stats.. It shows that people who attend reunion have better sales.. It’s because you get SO ridiculously motivated!!! WOW! We had AMAZING speakers! And guess what? My very own Director spoke at one of our sessions! EEEEEEEK! 🙂 She did a wonderful job! We also had Brene’ Brown, Daniel Pink, and Mary Christianson! Look them ALL up! They’re authors! The’re Motivational Speakers.. They are GREAT! 🙂

I was so excited to meet my Director! We’ve talked online for over a year now. She is SO inspirational and so supportive & encouraging!

A Haul, Single Living, and the Lord

Hey everyone! What’s going on?  Not a whole lot here!! I just got home! After work, our family went to eat at Longhorn Steakhouse for my Dad’s birthday.. I DID NOT care for their steak at all.. Their side salad was delicious though. After dinner, Jude and I went to Ulta! 🙂 I ABSOLUTELY love that store! It’s AMAZING!!! Jude loves it too! 🙂  I think he loves all the bright colors.. and he loves to smell the perfume and cologne! 🙂  HAHAHA! Other than Target, it’s my favorite store EVER!  I have a HUGE event coming up soon, so I had to pick up a few necessities! I watched a tutorial for a smoldering (smokey) look the other night and she used a Loreal Extra Intense Liquid Eye Penci! Supposed to be amazing, so we’ll see! LOL! Also got a lipstain that was clearanced out, and a NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil.. But I can’t remember which one I got.. Bronze maybe… 🙂  WOOT!!!

LOREAL

JEP

stain

The stain… I am not sure about. The applicator is REALLY, REALLY weird… The good thing is, it doesn’t feel like a stain.. It actually really does feel more like a gloss! I just applied it a bit ago, so we’ll see if it’s still there when I wake up! LOL!

 

Lately, I’ve been having some thoughts… As a single woman, sometimes it gets lonely being single… But as a single Mom, I think it’s worse sometimes. I have friends, and I have a ton of WONDERFUL family around me ALL the time. But, there are times when I get lonely for companionship… Someone to share my life with, my hopes and dreams, etc.  You all know what I am talking about.  Well, the other day I was having a hard day.. I was feeling sorry for myself and I was driving to a job. All of the sudden, the Lord placed a song on my heart…  It’s a song I’ve ALWAYS Loved, but haven’t heard or thought about in ages… The first verse says this…

“Who can satisfy my soul like you
Who on earth could comfort  me
And love me like You do
Who could  ever be more faithful, true
I will trust in You
I  will trust in You, my God”

Such an amazing thing to hear at that moment..  No MAN can satisfy my soul… If I am not being satisfied and fulfilled by my relationship with Jesus Christ, then a man is not going to be able to fill that gap.  God put a hole in EVERYONE that ONLY He can fill. That’s what I was doing before…. Feeling lonely and dating whoever… I haven’t dated in over 3 years.  And I won’t.  Not unless I feel the Spirit saying its okay… And not unless my family approves. Doesn’t mean I won’t get lonely. I will. BUT, I have a close relationship with the One who created me and knows my thoughts and feelings and can take that away. Being a single mom is so much different then when I was single. I dated people that were NOT good for me. Now, I am not only thinking about me and my wants and needs.  It’s just all so weird. LOL!!! I actually attempted online dating.. FOR A DAY. LITERALLY A DAY.  I had messages from weird, random men… One of them was an ex con. LOL! NO THANKS.  I immediately deleted my account the next day. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!  ANYWAYS….. Back to a serious note… If ANY single moms are out there reading this… There IS hope for us! 🙂  I don’t know about you ladies, but I for one would rather be alone forever, than be with the wrong guy… Wouldn’t you?

comedy

This is 100% me.  I laugh at everything I say. I think I’m hilarious! 🙂 HAHA!

comedy2

Those are all funny….. But this last one is TRUE sometimes.. LOL! When I am having a pity party day, this is really sad to me. LOL! LOL!

comedy3

But really…. It’s ALL good!!  I know if I am supposed to get married again, I will ONLY IN GOD’S TIME. 🙂

That’s all I have tonight!  I thought I’d share that just in case someone else is really struggling!  I hope y’all have a WONDERFUL evening!!!!

You.Guys.Rock.
