I’m Trying Here!

Hey everyone! I am trying to get back into blogging more than once or twice a year! So twice in a month is pretty amazing! LOL! 😀

How are y’all doing? How was y’alls Christmas? Mine was great! I have to say, Christmas with children is EVERYTHING!  I MAY have gone a little overboard.. LOL! I just love seeing my son happy! He’s been so excited this Christmas season!!! From the tree, to the lights, and music and movies and presents.. It’s just been so magical this year!!!! I have LOVED it all with him! Just as magical for me as for him. LOL! I started Christmas shopping a few months ago… I had extra money due to my Scentsy job, so I have been buying here and there.. we buy for the WHOLE family…. and this year it included Brynne’s boyfriend and his two kiddos! So I bought everyone one thing, and Jude about 7. LOL! I just couldn’t help it! He got everything he wanted this year, I made sure of that! So Christmas Eve is when we ALL get together at my PawPaw’s… We ALWAYS eat sandwiches and chips and dips for supper. Then we all sit in the living room and my PawPaw reads the Christmas story from Luke in the Bible. After that, we have a time of prayer.. We stand in a circle and hold hands and my Mama prays. THEN it’s time for presents.. It’s ALWAYS been the kiddos job to pass out gifts… It was me and my sisters growing up, and then it was passed on to my niece and nephew, and Jude. It’s so much fun! Watching Jude open his presents is my absolute FAVORITE thing in the whole wide world!!!! He got ALL kinds of awesome gifts… Light sabers, Nerf Guns, The Jungle Book movie, a bow and arrow, targets…. SO MANY AWESOME gifts!! He loved everything! I also got awesome gifts… A Pioneer Woman Cook Book (she’s our favorite!), money, an ULTA gift card, and a movie with four movies, all because I asked for “Because I Said So”.. HAHA! 😀 I LOVE that movie!

So usually, we stay the night at my PawPaw’s and do Santa stuff and then eat lunch together.. This year, I wanted to change it up. Jude and I are making memories, he’s only young for a short time.. So we came home by ourselves.. My parents stayed the night. Jude and I came home and got cookies and milk for Santa, and a carrot for the reindeer. Then Jude went to sleep while Mama stayed up until 2am wrapping Santa gifts. LOL! RIDICULOUS!

Jude woke up about 830am (Thank Goodness it wasn’t 6am!) We opened our stockings (I bought fun stuff for myself for mine! LOL!) and Jude was SO happy! Besides his little stocking stuffers, he got an electronic Kylo Ren Light Saber, and the four pack velociraptor set from Jurassic World, and Mario Party 10 for his Wii U! He said he had the best Christmas!!! That made me so happy! 😀 After that, we got dressed and headed BACK out to my PawPaw’s for lunch. We had a wonderful lunch, made by my Mom and my aunt, then just hung around the rest of the day. We did get some TERRIBLE news while out there….. GEORGE MICHAEL DIED! WAHHHHHHHHH! This is SERIOUSLY sad to me! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE him! I always wanted to marry him when I was younger. LOL! 😛 Father Figure, Teacher, Careless Whisper, and One More Try, are my top favorites! But I love so many of his songs!

 

Anyways, we stayed out there utnil about 6 or so and came home! Jude loved being home and playing with his presents! I slept SUPER late today. LOL! I am off work until the 3rd! HELLO! My job ROCKS!!!!!

Preparing for Christmas is my favorite! Thinking of great gifts for people, planning, etc.. I LOVE IT! I had almost everything bought by the beginning of the month, but I need to finish up stocking stuffers.. So, Friday night Jude didn’t get to sleep until SUPER Late, I’m talking like 11pm.. So I ran to Target…. I was going to get a pair of PJ’s for his Elf to give him that night… they were totally picked over! I had to go to WalMart.. Which I didn’t want to do.. I HATE going there… So I go.. Pick out PJ’s and some other stuff, and go get in one of the crazy long lines… I started to a guy in line and we noticed NONE of the lines had moved.. Like AT ALL… Then an annoucement came over the speaker.. Their registers were ALL offline, and it would take about 10 minutes… FINALLY they came back on.. More like 15 or 20 minutes.. Then we noticed our line STILL hadn’t moved… The people at the register were standing there while the cashier was KEYING IN by hand their ENTIRE order.. and it was BIG! UGH! So she turned her light off and we all moved over.. To an even longer line.. By this time, it was after 1am!!! WEll, all of the sudden, a girl I’d been in line with earlier came up to me and said “come on, my Mom told me to come get you and let you in front of us”!!! SAY WHAT!? SWEETEST THING EVER and shows the spirit of Christmas! So FINALLY I got home! LOL! WHEW!!!!

So… There ya have it! A full recap of my Christmas! LOL! 😀 Pretty exciting, huh??? 😀 I hope your Christmas was FABULOUS as well!

Today, I met up with my oldest friend and we saw “Why Him?” LOL! Oh geeze… Has anyone else seen that? Terribly inappropriate, but there were times we were laughing so hard we were gasping for air. LOL! I just LOVE James Franco! He is seriously adorable!!!!! The rest of the week will be spent shopping and having fun with Jude.. Maybe taking him to the movies or bowling, or something fun!!!!

I hope y’all have a WONDERFUL Christmas break!! I’ll be back later! 😀

Merry Christmas/Happy New Year!

HEY HEY  Everyone! What’s going on???  Well, it’s taken a while to write this, but it will be a GOOD one! 🙂  Well at least I think so! 🙂 LOL!

So. We had to wait until New Years Day to do our Family Christmas.  My brother in law had to work, my sister got sick, my niece was sick, and my Aunt & Uncle couldn’t come in. Christmas Day a few of us went out to my Grandpa’s house for Christmas lunch.. That morning I did Jude’s Santa stuff. He got a lot of stuff, and had fun opening his stocking and presents! He got a lot of Dinosaur stuff, playdough, fun stuff like that!

New Years Day we ran errands and finished things up and then headed out to my Grandpa’s house!  FINALLY! 🙂  We ate a big lunch and then hung out all afternoon talking, playing games, whatever.  My brother in law ended up having to work until 7 that night, so once he got there we ate finger foods and sandwiches for dinner, and then the fun began! 🙂  Our traditions for Christmas is my Grandpa starts out by reading the Christmas story from Luke 2….

ChristmasSTory

Then we stand in a circle and hold hands and pray.. After that, the kiddos pass out Christmas presents!!!!! WOOT WOOT WOOT!!

2014Tree

It was GREAT!  Jude got some AMAZING Stuff!!! he got games, a dino shirt, some learning stuff, money, a remote control T REX, a Buzz lightyear.. He REALLY RACKED up this year! 🙂  I love watching him have so much fun!!!!

I got money, gift cards, and THE LITTLE MERMAID ON DVD! 🙂 WOOT WOOT! I SO love that movie and I’ve wanted it forever! LOL!

With my money and gift cards, first things first… I went to ULTA ( I had a gift card) I bought Urban Decay NAKED 2 palette… OH MY GOSH!!!!! EEEEEEEEK!  I’ve been wanting to get one of these for awhile.  I stood in Ulta staring at all three of them for about 30 minutes. LOL! I finally chose 2… But now I am DYING to get the other two! LOL!!!  I have used it EVERY SINGLE DAY since I bought it!

Naked2

I also bought Benefit They’re Real mascara.. WOWZERS!  I’ve had so many compliments on my lashes lately! 🙂

Benefit

 

It’s way more expensive than what I’d normally spend, but I was just DYING to try it, so I splurged! EEEEEK! 🙂 I don’t know if I can use Drug Store Mascara ever again! HAHAHAHA!

Another AWESOME find this past week is This….  MAYBELLINE BABY LIPS… Man o Man! I’ve read about this product on TONS of make up blogs.. Have had several people tell him they’re awesome, I just always forget to grab one.. So this week I grabbed GRAPE VINE. AMAZING! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! Just gives a little hint of color and is SUPER moisturizing! I LOVE it! I’ll definitely be buying more of this!!!!!!  If you haven’t grabbed one, DO IT! You’ll thank me, I promise! 🙂

So, I’d say it’s been a pretty productive make up shopping couple of weeks. LOL! 🙂 I’d so much rather buy make up and perfume, than clothes and shoes. I.HATE.IT! Seriously! AUGH! Oh well!

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.

Something to Read

Hey Hey! What’s going on??  I am just hanging out while Jude naps! 🙂

Not a whole lot going on this weekend.  Last night my nephew had a basketball game.. They won! WOOOOT! 🙂 Then Jude and I grabbed some Raisin Canes and came home. HILARIOUSLY though, we couldn’t get out of the car. We pull up and there are THREE huge dogs in our yard. One was a mutt, one was a BEAUTIFUL Harlequin Great Dane (I would have loved to have kept her!), and the third was a PIT! Ummmm, no thanks! LOL!!!! Kayla and Kelbey pulled up at the same time… We sat in our cars yelling, clapping, and honking @ 930 at night. LOL! 🙂 It was quite a sight, I’m sure! FINALLY they ran around back so we TOOK OFF! After sitting in our cars acting like totally dorks for about 15 minutes, we got inside. LOL! HAd it just been the Dane, I wouldn’t have been so nervous. She had a collar and tag.. And Danes are generally great with people! But I wasn’t going ANYWHERE near that Pit Bull. LOL!!!

Anyways..Today we have just hung out.  Dad took the day off and so he and Jude have been watching basketball games on tv.

Music, perfume, life….

 

Hey guys! What’s going on out there!? I hope you’re all having a GREAT day!!!!  I had a pretty good day! Worked pretty hard, played with Jude at the playground, came home and ate dinner, gave Jude a bath, and now we’re SUPPOSED to be winding down.. I am winding down… Jude is not. LOL!!!!!

I am RIDICULOUSLY excited that tomorrow is FRIDAY!!!!!!  I am ready to have a nice, relaxing weekend! No stress! No deadlines! No Nothing! Just family time, PAJAMA PARTY at church, and who knows what else!! 🙂 What do y’all have planned?  Anything exciting?! Let me know!

I got an Ulta magazine in the mail today… Those things are DANGEROUS!!!!!  I absolutely LOVE them, though! 🙂  A trip to Ulta MAY be on my list of things to do this weekend! LOL! There is a $5.00 off any purchase of $10 or more coupon on the front… It’s only good Saturday-Monday… Can’t let it go to waste, right!? 🙂

They always put perfume samples in it… This time there was Body by Burberry…… I am sitting in bed at 9:15pm wearing it… I REALLY, REALLY like it… I actually sampled some at Dillards a few weeks ago and liked it.. I think this is a sign I should own it. LOL!!!!!  The other sample in there was Marc Jacobs Dot & Daisy… I’ll try those out this weekend.  I’ll let y’all know! I am ALWAYS in the market for new perfume! 🙂  You can NEVER, EVER have too much perfume.. Can I get an amen? LOL!!!!!

My ALL time favorite Christian Band is Audio Adrenalin….  They stopped playing together a few years ago and I was SUPER bummed! I saw them in concert a couple of times.. My first concert I went with my AMAZING brother in law to Plainview… We seriously had the BEST time!!! At that time, I was in massage therapy school… As I was getting a autographs from them they asked if I went to Wayland Baptist (where the concert was) and I said no that was in Massage therapy school… So they asked me to rub their shoulders while they signed. LOL! OH.EM.GEE! So I did.. I, Sherilyn J. Crutchfield, rubbed Mark stuart’s shoulders that night! EEEEEEEEK! LOL!  Okay, anyways, I was SUPER depressed when they quit making music.  Well driving to work this morning I heard a song and it sounded like DC Talk’s singer, Kevin Max! I ran into the office and googled it… SURE ENOUGH it was…. KEVIN MAX SINGING FOR AUDIO ADRENALIN!!!! Oh My Gosh! I’m ridiculously sad Mark Stuart isn’t singing, but he IS in the video I’m posting, so that’s cool!!!!

Watch this video! It’s amazing! Especially if you have children, In my opinion!!!

Kevin Max has an AMAZING voice! And he’s SUPER attractive.. I think I always loved him for his crazy  hair and eyeliner look. LOL! 🙂

Anyways…..

So my sister has been asking me what I want for Christmas..  I’ve been thinking… It’s  hard because I usually buy what I REALLY want! LOL!!!!!! But I decided on a few things….

1. MONEY

2. iTunes Gift Cards

3. Sugar Pill Heart Breaker Palette… Pic included.. LOL!

4. Gift cards to Target, Kohls, Amazon, Old Navy, Ulta, and Sephora

And I guess that’s all….. 🙂 See? I don’t need much. LOL!

ANYWAYS…………………..

Well, I guess that’s it for now… Check back later this weekend.. I’m sure there will be another blog soon. I hope y’all have a fabulous weekend! I know I will!!!!

Love,

Sherilyn
