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!!!




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?


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


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!


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!!!!









I Work Out…

No, no I don’t. LOL!!!! I ATTEMPT to work out, but geeze louise!  I was warned. I can’t say that I wasn’t. But GOOD GOLLY!  I did 15 minutes of the Level one in the 30 Day Shred. RIDICULOUS. I am serious.  I ONLY DID FIFTEEN MINUTES! I am fairly certain I will just roll over out of bed. HA! How pathetic am I?  I mean, really?!?!? HA! I haven’t worked out in a VERY, VERY, VERY long day!  I think I should probably get a membership to a gym and have a trainer help me out! LOL! SIGH!!!!!!!!  It’s really pretty sad! 😦  Oh well!!!!!!!


I am watching “Ring Of Fire”… It’s a story on June Carter Cash & Johnny Cash. More from HER side of the story.  Jewel is playing June Carter Cash… She’s not my favorite.. But so far it’s pretty good. I LOVE Johnny Cash, and I LOVE his music… So we’ll see how this goes.

How was your Memorial Day Weekend??  Ours was GREAT!!!!!  I already talked about Friday and SAturday… So Sunday Jude and I were SUPPOSED to get up and go to Sunday School. Yeah, we didn’t make it. We didn’t wake up until 9:24am! BLAH! We DID make it to church, and it was a WONDERFUL sermon! I LOVE our Pastor.  He had a whole sermon planned out for the next two Sundays.  But God changed it. It was WONDERFUL! It was about disasters and what causes it, why they happen, etc. Our church is truly blessed with a WONDERFUL pastor! I just LOVE him!!!!!!!!

AFter church we, of course, came home and ate with the whole family.  After lunch I put Jude down for a nap, and then the rest of us just hung out. We played Super Mario on Wii, talked, laughed, etc. Monday Jude and I slept in LATE! We didn’t get up until 10am! LOL! Jude ate breakfast and then we immediatley went outside.  Jude was in and out ALL day long!!!!!!  I played outside with him (actually just sat and supervised!) I also Mowed the yard, which Jude LOVED. LOL!!! My Mom made a Tri Tip and Potato salad for lunch.. It was delicious!! We also got ice cream from the ice cream truck… YUMMMMMY! I freaking love that stuff! It is my FAVORITE! Today I got the BRATZ one. LOL! SO GOOD! Everyone left pretty early for cook outs with friends and what not, but that was fine with me! LOL! Jude didn’t take a nap, so he was bathed and in bed asleep by 7:48pm! LOL!! 🙂   THAT NEVER HAPPENS! I was so glad!! After he went to bed, I dyed my hair and took a shower! WOOOOOT! 🙂


I did this box. I’ve done it before… The color I was sporting before this one was too brassy, in my opinion.  I like the more purple-y colors! 🙂  This is a cheaper hair color and I LOVE IT! I LOVE Revlon products PERIOD! 🙂

Today work was good… It went by fast! I had lunch with a fellow Scentsy Sister whom I just LOVE!! We ate at Jason’s Deli and it was SO good! I haven’t been there in a long time!!! Anyways!!!

I guess that’s it!!!!  My life is PRETTY exciting! 🙂 I hope y’all have a wonderful evening and a GREAT day tomorrow!!!! I LOVE Holiday’s because when you have Monday off, the rest of the week goes FAST!!!!!! WOOT WOOT!
