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?????

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!

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!

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.

Enough is Enough. :)

Another post! YAY for me! 🙂 What’s going on?  I just got out of the shower & now I am laying here watching ENOUGH…  I LOVE this movie! I watch it every time it comes on tv! I’ve already watched parts of it once today. LOL!!! 🙂

What did everyone do today??  I really did a whole lotta nothing! LOL!  Jude and I slept until about 915, ate waffles for breakfast, played, watched Blues Clues, ate lunch, he napped, delivered some Avon in Wolfforth, then we went to church! Fun times right there! LOL!!!!!! It was an uneventful day, just the way I like it on the weekends!!!

West Nile has hit Lubbock…. BLAH! My son is an OUTDOORSY dude!  And now I’m freaked out! LOL!!!!  I’ve never put repellant on him because there are SO many harmful chemicals in it.. And they say it’s best to use repellant with DEET in it, and I’ve heard that’s REALLY harmful!  But, I don’t want him getting West Nile either… So… Today, we stayed indoors. LOL! LOL!!  I know I can’t keep him inside all the time… We’d both go crazy.  I guess I need to see if there are natual repellants we could use…. That would REALLY work.. Do any of you have any good ones you use?  I’d love to hear some recommendations!!

Did y’all hear that Steven Tyler has gone back as the front man of Aerosmith and they have a new album coming out in November?! I am pretty stoked about it!  Kidd Craddick played a couple clips the other day and one of them sounded really good! EVERYONE knows I LOVE Steven Tyler! 🙂 He’s pretty amazing!!!!

I’ve been reading a ton of make up blogs lately, and I am telling ya, it’s going to get me in trouble!!!!!!! I already purchased from SugarPill…..  But now I want to purchase from Lit, Glamour Doll Eyes, and Inglot! LOL!!  I just can’t help it! I LOVE MAKE UP!  Isn’t it awful!? LOL!!!

I FINLLY got Urban Decay’s Primer Potion a few weeks ago…  I’d just been using NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk which works wonderfully! But I REALLY wanted to try Primer Potion!  And I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! It STICKS, and makes your eyeshadow stay on ALL DAY LONG!!!!  I do still use the NYX JEP because it REALLY makes the colors pop! They are so much more vibrant when I use it, and in my opinion, the more bold & vibrant, the better! LOL!!! 🙂 Anyways…  I’m just going to have to restrain myself!  I am trying to save my money for now!!!!!  We’ll see.. LOL!!!!

Anyways..  I guess I’d better go for tonight!  Thank you guys for reading! 🙂
