Butterflies, Dinosaurs, Teeth, and more! :)

HEY HEY EVERYONE!! What’s going on???ย  I am watching Friends, but I REALLY need to go to bed! I am SO tired!!!!! Today has been SUCH A wonderful day!! Jude and I had a Mommy/Son date day and it was AWESOME!!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ We have a big family, and we usually are ALL together on the weekends… This weekend though, I decided it was just me and Jude. I had two events I was choosing between..ย  The Air Show in Slaton or the Butterfly Exhibit at the Science Spectrum. I ended up choosing the Science Spectrum… It got up to 91 today, so I decided I didn’t want to sit outside for hours. LOL! So, Jude and I first went to get our car washed, then delivered Scentsy to my hair stylist, THEN made it to the Science Spectrum!ย  We ended up buying a year membership for 6 of us, and so we got into the Butterfly exhibit for only $3! Boom! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Jude was SO excited!!! He LOVES butterflies! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  You go into a green house and they just fly all around! THere’s trees and plants and they fly everywhere, land on the floor, or sometimes ON PEOPLE! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Jude dodged and giggled every time they came near him. HAHA! ๐Ÿ™‚

They were CRAZY HUGE!!!!!!!!!!!ย  If one of those would have landed on me, I would have screamed! LOL! There were actually some older ladies who let out little yelps when they came near them! LOL!! ๐Ÿ™‚

I LOVE this… It’s our shadow! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  We were dancing in front of the wall and the strobe light flashed and it cast our shadow up on the wall! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  How fun is that?!?!!?

Jude kept wanting to look at the dinosaur and was telling me how BIG it is! It made a roaring sound every few seconds.. I pretended to be scared at one pot and this little girl who was probably 5 or 6 years old, came up to me and told me he wasn’t real, he was just pretend. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  So cute!

IMG_1137

Scary, right? ๐Ÿ™‚ LOL!!

After the Science Spectrum, we went and grabbed lunch and went home so Jude could nap.ย  After he woke up we went to the Mall! ๐Ÿ™‚ I got some new shoes!! WOOT WOOT!!! I got some black and hot pink NEW BALANCE tennis shoes! WOOT WOOT! ๐Ÿ™‚ I love them! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  We left that store and headed for SEARS! THE ONLY REASON WE WENT THERE WAS SO JUDE COULD PLAY WITH THE LAWN MOWERS! HAHAHAHAHA! ๐Ÿ™‚

After the Mall, we went to SMYER to watch my nephew play basketball… It was a dud, unfortunately!

Tomorrow will be church, lunch with the family, then who knows! I need to get a pair of jeans, so we may go shopping again!!!!

Anyways!

I guess that’s all I have for now! I hope y’all have a WONDERFUL rest of the weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Are y’all having a good weekend??ย  I am so far! I am glad I still have two days left of it! I LOVE Holidays!!!!!!! More time with my son? Yes, please! Today we woke up, got dressed, and went and got donuts from SIP & DIP! They have AMAZING Bavarian Cream donuts that my Mom and I LOVE!Jude got a chocolate glazed one and a few donut holes! LOL! He’s a lil piggy! We came home, ate, and then played outside most of the day.ย  I washed dishes, started some laundry, and then after Jude’s nap, it was MORE outside!!! HAHA! This evening I went to a friends house for a cook out. This girl and I have been friends since we were about two years old.ย  Our families did EVERYTHING growing up… Literally! They have 5 children, and there were 4 of us girls…. We were all best friends.ย  At each others houses every weekend.ย  Since we’re all grown up, I still used to go to her house and hang out with her and her hubby and daughters alot… Since having Jude, it’s been once or twice… Pitiful! So, went over there for about an hour and a half tonight.ย  It was good to catch up with her family!!! THEN when I was leaving, her older sister followed me home and hung out with my family for awhile! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ย  It was like old times. Reminiscing about the “olden days”.ย  HAHAHAHAHA! It was a great day!

Tomorrow we have church, then lunch with the fam, and then no plans. And no plans on Monday either. Pretty glad about that!! Although, I REALLY, REALLY wanna go see a movie!!!!!! I LOVE the movies and I don’t go nearly enough!

All The Single Ladies

HEY GUYS!!

What’s going on??ย  I am just sitting here watching FEVER PITCH! ๐Ÿ™‚ This movie is so cute! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  I love Drew Barrymore and ADORE Jimmy Fallon! ๐Ÿ™‚

Thisย post ย is really for all the single ladies out there… Watching this movie kinda reminds me of the type of guy I would like to date.. Well, in the beginning it does.. The whole, immaturity, obsessed with baseball, etc is NOT what I want. LOL! But in the beginning they’re supposed to go on their first date, but she gets a stomach bug. He didn’t even know her, but he stayed and took care of her, cleaned her house, etc. How adorable is that? I just think that’s the sweetest thing EVER! In my opinion, there’s nothing better than a sensitive, caring man.ย  Well, except for a Godly man.. That kinda takes the cake. But then, if he’s REALLY a Godly man, he’ll probably be caring and sensitive! ๐Ÿ™‚

All of you single ladies out there probably have a list.. Either on paper, or in your head, of what the “Perfect Man” looks like to you. I know I do. Something I’ve learned is.. NEVER SHARE THAT LIST WITH A MAN! LOL! Seriously.. Especially one you don’t know well.. If you’re online dating, don’t post it out there for everyone to see.ย  ANY MAN can fake it for awhile. You put it out there and tell everyone, I guarantee you’ll find the nut jobs who really AREN’T that man, but can pretend they are for awhile. I’ve told two guys in my past what I want in a relationship… What my “dream man” looks like and acts like.ย  Both men faked it REALLY well for awhile!!! So…. No one but me and God know what my “DREAM MAN” looks like.ย  Well, my BFF does too.. But she knows better than to say a WORD. HAHAHAHAHAHA! ๐Ÿ™‚

As a single lady, you probably get lonely sometimes. Or all the time. I know I do. Before I had Jude, I was used to being surrounded by guys. I dated, I was married, etc. Dating takes on a whole new meaning after you have a child. I no longer want a man just to fill the void. My last relationship ended in December 2009. I haven’t dated a man since. I refuse to settle down and date around.ย  For one thing, I don’t want just ANY guy around my son. Two, I don’t want MULTIPLE men meeting my son.. It gets confusing and hard on children when their parents date a whole lot of people and there are partners constantly in and out of their lives. It’s not fair to the child. They begin to form a bond with one guy, then you break up and date another and they get close to that guy and then you break up and date another…. No thank you. Also, I won’t settle for just anyone. I’ve settled in the past. Not happening again.ย  If I date again, it will be because there is something truly special there.ย  Something MORE than just dating. My son deserves more and so do I!

Sometimes I get lonely and I gripe to my BFF. I was kinda interested in a guy and then found out some things that I was NOT impressed with…. She always tells me the same thing… “Maybe God is sparing you from being hurt”. I’ve been hurt quite a bit in the past.ย  So, she COULD be on to something. Of course I’d never tell her she was right…. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Anyways….ย  If you’re lonely and it seems like there are no guys, just remember that God could DEFINITELY be sparing you from hurt, heartache, or even danger.

So… I wait. I sit and wait. And Pray. If I am supposed to get married again, God will bring him around me when the time is right.ย  Even if I feel like it is freaking taking FOREVER! HAHAHAHAHAHA! Gods time is NOT our time. And he knows what he is doing.ย  He sees the whole picture and we can not.ย  Sometimes, like I have done in the past.. I push past what HE wants and just do what I want… It has ALWAYS caused GREAT heartache and pain. It’s definitely NOT worth it.. Especially since I have a child to think about.ย  His needs FAR outweigh my own.

So ladies.. Sit tight. PRAY for that special guy that you long to find. Pray for him in his daily life, his relationship with Christ, etc. That’s what I do. Every day. IF there is a husband in my future, I am praying for him every single night before bed. I will only accept the best from now on. I am a child of the King.ย  I am a “Princess”. And until God says okay, I’ll wait (sometimes impatiently) for my “Prince”! ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyways.

 

This post may not have helped a single soul out there. But if it did, I’m glad. ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Mother’s Day!!!!

HEY HEY Everyone!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  How’s it going??ย  Pretty good here!! I am just watching the rest of STEPMOM… I started it a few days ago and didn’t get to finish it!

SHOUT OUT TO ALL THE MOM’S OUT THERE!! Especially My Mama and my awesome big sister, Kayla! Two of the most Amazing Mama’s I know! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ย  I don’t know what Jude’s deal is, but I did NOT get one thing from him today! LOL!! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Just kidding… I’m hoping to splurge and get a massage soon….ย  That will be from Jude. HAHA! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Man did we have a GREAT weekend!!!!!! Work was crazy all week, Friday it rained almost all day and I got to have lunch with a friend at one of my favorite places, Sugarbakers… They have THE BEST Chicken Salad…. Like, EVER! If you live here, go there, and try it! Yummmmmy! Saturday my sister watched Jude for me and I went to have my Scentsy Table at Cooper North Elementary for the Mother/Daughter Spring Fling.ย  It was pretty good! I made some money, which is important. LOL!! ๐Ÿ™‚

sugarbakers

Mother’s Day is so weird….. Shouldn’t Mom’s be celebrated every single day????ย  The stuff Mom’s do for their families really goes un recognized. I am not just talking about the cooking, cleaning, etc.ย  I am also talking about the emotional side of parenting. MAN! It’s HARD!!! Sure, taking care of kids is hard work.. Making Sure Jude has clean clothes, food to eat, is learning what he needs to learn etc. That is ALL very hard work. BUT, the emotional side of it is just unreal.ย  Constantly wondering if you’re doing the right things with them, if you’re teaching them all the right things, making sure they’re safe from harm and illness, etc etc etc etc.ย LITERALLY feeling their pain when they’re hurt, or theย emotions when they cryย MAN!ย  Before I was a Mom, I NEVER would have known that side of it. I used to baby sit… I’ve babysat since I was 12. I even kep kids for long weekends, etc.ย  One family I kept their kids during the week while the parents went out of town… I had to get the boys up and fed and off to school, pick them up in the evening, take them home, feed them, get them to practices, get homework done, etc… So I knew that part of parenting was a JOB. But, the emotional part is something kept secret just for parents. LOL!!!!ย  One of my favorite quotes of all time is…. โ€œBeing a mother is like having your heart walking around outside your body.โ€ It’s really quite true!!!!ย  It’s hard and sometimes it hurts. But I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the whole world!!!!!! It’s hard, but also fulfilling. Knowing that this child CAME FROM ME (you can tell because he’s the spitting image of me!) LOL!ย Anyways…… Enough about that.

 

I went and ran a few errands afterwards, then went to get Jude.ย  We stayed at Kayla’s for awhile hanging out and then came home… A little bit later, Kayla and her family came to our house. LOL!!!!!! It’s tradition for our family to do hamburgers EVERY SINGLE SATURDAY NIGHT! ๐Ÿ™‚ Last night, Kayla made them for us! So sweet! ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  After we ate, we went outside and watched Mom pull weeds. LOL!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Today we had church, then came home and ate as a family… PawPaw & Quinton came over.. Everyone stayed ALL DAY! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  It was great! We hung out outside, talking and listening to different songs.. Then for dinner, Mom made homemade pizza’s! YUMMMMMMMY! They were SO good!!!!!

A few of us have been doing the MyFitnessPal together.. Eating healthier and what not….. Today…… We all kinda blew that. Okay, not kinda.. But TOTALLY blew it. LOL! LOL!! Tomorrow it’s back to the grind.ย  If you know me, you know I ABSOLUTELY HATE eating healthy. LOL! I ADORE Fast food.. French fries, burritos, cokes, etc. AAAAUUUUUGGGGGGGHHHH! Oh well.. We weighed today and ALL of has lost weight! BOOM! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Now, I just need to start working out. BLAH! LOL! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Did any of you guys do anything exciting this weekend???ย  I hope y’all had a GREAT one! ๐Ÿ™‚

I have some very exciting stuff going on in my life… Answers to prayer! Jude and I have something we pray about EVERY SINGLE NIGHT!ย  And the first part has been answered! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ So, we continue to pray EVERY SINGLE NIGHT and will wait for the second part to be answered. God is SO good to us!!!!!ย  I love teaching Jude about prayer, and showing Jude when God DOES answer the prayers in a very real way. It’s so exciting!!!!!! I am so glad that I’ve been raised in a family who worships God, who taught me about prayer. Thankful also for my church for that. It’s so important! I can only hope that Jude will remember these moments and grow up to do the same with his children some day. ๐Ÿ™‚ There is a fairly new song that I LOVE that talks about Trusting Jesus.. It’s GREAT and it’s by Hillsong.. LOVE THEM! It’s called “Cornerstone”

http://youtu.be/aEhSk7bfbK8

This youtube video has the lyrics.. It’s SO AWESOME!!!!!!!!

 

Anyways…ย  I guess I’d better go. It’s midnight and I have a busy day tomorrow!

Worship Music.

So, remember a few posts ago, I mentioned a guy on KLOVE Radio asking what everyone’s favorite line from a Worship song was… I told y’all I had several but had to think about it.ย  Well, there’s a song I just LOVE……ย  I think I posted the song not long ago… Forever Reign by Hillsong….

http://youtu.be/3f3sNiYpuF4

 

I LOVE this part….

You are peace, You are peace
When my fear is crippling
You are true, You are true
Even in my wandering
You are joy, You are joy
You’re the reason that I sing
You are life, You are life,
In You death has lost its sting

 

There have been A LOT of times where my FEAR felt like it was crippling me! I’d begin to have an anxiety attack and just FREAK OUT! But then I’d remember to breathe and pray and it would be gone… I do this a lot.. Even still. Satan knows your weaknesses.. He’ll do anything to get you weak and question yourself and God.ย  As long as you REMEMBER that God is Holy and He is ALL we need… And remember to PRAY.. You’ll be okay! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Another one I love is Revelation Song by Phillips, Craig & Dean…. I hadn’t heard this song until several years ago when my older sister Shonda sang it.. It is an AMAZING song.. I get chill bumps and usually tear up…

http://youtu.be/dsiDukXIeVY

My favorite part of the song is this…….

Filled with wonder, awestruck wonder
At the mention of your name
Jesus your name is power
Breath, and living water
Such a marvelous mystery
Yeah…

AMAZING… His name is Amazing. And even JUST saying His Name, there’s Power. Simply saying His name causes Evil, Satan, to FLEE! I LOVE THAT!!!!! That’s what I love about Christianity. When you say Buddha’s name, or whatever, NOTHING HAPPENS. There’s no power. Evil doesn’t flee.. People aren’t healed.. Prayers aren’t answered.ย  But when you call on the name of Jesus… MAN! STUFF HAPPENS!!!!!!

 

I’ve talked about this song before.. It’s SIMPLY AMAZING.ย  We haven’t sung (sang? singed?) this song in awhile at church.. We need to. It’s the BEST!!! It’s called Still by Hillsong…. AUGH! Amazing!

 

http://youtu.be/3FrEmqyM4-k

The Part I love…. Is this… SO AWESOME!

 

When the oceans rise and thunders roar
I will soar with You above the storm
Father you are King over the flood
I will be still and know You are God

 

AMAZING! Am I right, or what?!?!?

I know I have a TON more, but I’d be sitting here ALL NIGHT LONG listing them. LOL!

These songs just speak to me! They all are kind of about calling out to God when you’re in trouble, or scared, or things get to be too much.ย  In the past 8 years, I’ve dealt with my fair share of crap.ย  First, an abusive marriage that ended in infidelity, then an awful, sinful relationship that also ended in infidelity…. To raising a child alone… And Here I am. Still standing. Trusting Jesus more than ever before.. I don’t believe I would have survived everything without Christ. Through it all, I have come out a better person.. A strong person. A Christian. A Mother. And It’s all thanks to Jesus Christ!

Anyways… There it is! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE worship music.. Do you?ย  What are some of your favorites?! I’d love to hear about them!

I hope y’all have a FABULOUS night and a GREAT day tomorrow!

Remember to thank Jesus for everything! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Even if it’s JUST for waking up! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ He is SO good to us!

This Is Just The Beginning!

Hey guys! What’s going on??? I am just sitting here enjoying my Saturday! Jude and I have already had a GREAT day!!! We slept in, got up and go dressed and then went to get my hair cut. After that we went to Lil Footprints and Jude picked out a new pair of tennis shoes! ๐Ÿ™‚ The kids has GREAT taste! Orange and grey Saucony shoes! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  After he tried those on, he refused to even look at any others! LOL!!!!!! Then we went to the Natural Health Market and got Jude’s Vitamin C and Vitamin D3! ๐Ÿ™‚ We had plans to meet up with my Mom, sisters and niece and nephew for lunch at Souper Salad, so we killed a few minutes by running to the Library! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Then it was on to Lunch! ๐Ÿ™‚ I pigged out…. a HUGE salad and some pizza. Jude just ate a baked potatoe, some of my croutons, and then of course, a bowl of ice cream. LOL! ๐Ÿ™‚

Now Jude is SOUND asleep, and I am watching “We Bought A Zoo”! Cute movie so far.ย  Last night I finally watched The Hobbit! It was good.ย  But pretty slow in parts, and all in all, not as good as the other three LOTR movies, in my opinion. Gollum cracked me up in some parts. And I of course LOVE Gandalf… But.. Meh. All in all it was okay. Of course, it COULD be because I was watching it at a low volume due to Jude sleeping next to me. Also because I watched it alone, with distractions.. LOL! Oh well! ๐Ÿ™‚

So, I took a break and went shopping with my family after Jude’s nap.. LOL! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  First, we met my Mom and sisters over at Brynne’s apartment… From there we went to the brand new Natural Grocers store here.. It’s pretty cool, and my old neighbor is a manager there! That’s fun!ย  After that we went to Kohl’s.ย  I got Jude two t shirts. They are SO cute! ๐Ÿ™‚ Then we came home.ย  We ate burgers like we do EVERY Saturday and watched 20/20 about hotels and flying.. LOL! I know, I know… It gets CRAZY over here on a Saturday night! LOL! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  NOW… Jude is sound asleep again, and I am watching Jurassic Park!

Tomorrow we have church, then lunch, and then I am meeting a potential new Scentsy recruit at Starbucks to go over ALL Things Scentsy! ๐Ÿ™‚ Wish me Luck! I also have another girl interested!ย  If I could get them both to sign up, that’d be FOUR recruits in a month! WOWZERS!!!!ย  EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK! ๐Ÿ™‚ I know I’ve said this a billion times, but I am SERIOUSLY having the most incredible time with Scentsy.ย  It’s an AMAZING company, with AMAZING products! I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!ย  I think… No, I KNOW you would Love it too! Check out my website HEREย I just LOVE what Scentsy is doing for ME personally… And this is JUST the beginning! I have SO far to go.. SO much to learn.. And still SO much to do! My sister has sort of become my assistant.. She has SEVERAL guy friends she has turned to Scentsy. LOL! ๐Ÿ™‚ They’ve bought a few times so far… And they are LOVING the Scentsy! LOL!ย  I had THREE online parties going at once, and my sister actually got me my FOURTH that I am doing right now! My hostesses have ALL got INCREDIBLY amazing rewards! I LOVE IT! ๐Ÿ™‚ One hostess had NEVER tried Scentsy before.ย  She lives in Florida. I offered to send her my mini testers to check it out.ย  She ended up hosting an online party and had a HUGE success!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Thanks to her friends and family, she got a ridiculous amount of scents and a few warmers for a LOW, LOW, LOW price! What a way to try Scentsy for the FIRST time! ๐Ÿ™‚

If you’d like to HOST a Scentsy party, Click HERE

Anyways!

Brynne found a new music streaming station, Songzaย and I am OBSESSED with it! It’s absolutely amazing! It’s WAY better than Pandora, in my opinion! It’s SO FUN! I love the 80’s and 90’s stations!!! There’s a TON Of 90’s stations, and that’s REALLY my favorite! ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s so much fun hearing NKOTB, Paula Cole, La Bousche, Right Said Fred, TLC, Backstreet Boys, Debbie Gibson, Lisa Loeb, etc! The music REALLY takes me back! LOL! ๐Ÿ™‚ You should ALL check it out!!!!

Well, I guess that’s about it!ย  I hope y’all have a WONDERFUL rest of the weekend! I am going to finish watching Jurassic Park and then crash! ๐Ÿ™‚
