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!

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????? It’s 5 levels… You can earn Scentsy family reunion next Summer… Kansas City, MO… OR Punta Cana, Dominacan Republic…. OR the Top 100 earners can go to…… AN AFRICAN SAFARI!! OH.EM.GEE! WHAT!???!!  Any of those appeal to you??? Hop on over to my website and click JOIN! You may wanna wait until MONDAY tho to get the SUPERSIZE KIT!  You can go to my site HERE

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!

Talk to y’all soon!

After Lunch, we went to the Texas Tech Museum.. A friend of mine messaged me and said that it was DINO DAY there! WOOT!  So Jude and I decided to forgo his nap and head over there.. It was nothing special to him.. TOO many screaming kids. LOL! But he did enjoy the Dino bones like last time HAHAHAHAHA!!!!  We came home, and Jude was EXHAUSTED!  He took an hr nap, then we went to the grocery store.. Came home and cooked supper and now we’re in bed!

 

Okay, so now it’s MONDAY night!  The rest of the weekend was great! Sunday morning we went to church… Our kids put on a play called Nic At Night.  After church, we went home and I cooked Chicken Tettrizzini, Salad, and cheesy garlic toast! It was DELICIOUS, if I do say so myself! HEHE! It was REALLY good!!! LOL!  After lunch, I put Jude down for a nap and then I BROKE FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!  Brynne stayed over all day so I could have some free time!  I went to the movies and saw “The Other Woman”! IT WAS SO CUTE!!!!  This was my first time to go to the movies alone.. It was WONDERFUL!  I got a popcorn and coke and sat down and had almost two hours by myself, laughing hysterically! HEHE! 🙂 When I got home, Brynne decided she wanted to go to Target to get a DVD player.   So Jude, Brynne & I went….  We bought a lot of random stuff and had a good time! 🙂 🙂

Anyways! That was my weekend!!!!!!!  It was pretty amazing! 🙂 I recommend “The Other Woman”… I’d see it again.  It was hilarious! Leslie Mann is one of the most hilarious actresses out there!!!!!!!

Blondes DO Have More Fun!

HEY EVERYONE!  🙂  How are y’all doing? I am doing GREAT!  I am watching “Honey, I Shrunk The Kids”.. LOL!  This was a Childhood favorite, and it came on tv the other day so I had to DVR it! 🙂

What’s going on with everyone??  I have just been working, selling my Scentsy, Grace Adele, & Velata, and of course, being a Mom! 🙂 Jude is getting bigger, and smarter, and funnier every day!  Work is… work… Scentsy is going great! Adding new people and watching my team grow is a BLAST! 🙂  Also, I’ve been finding out more about my INCENTIVE trip I won, so that’s ALWAYS awesome! 🙂 Scentsy treats us SO good, I am truly blessed to be a part of the Scentsy family!!!!!  If you’ve ever considered selling Scentsy, Grace Adele, or Velata… or all Three, Don’t put off joining any longer!!!!  It is a GREAT family to be a part of! My only regret is that I didn’t start selling it sooner!!!!!!!

Velata is a WONDERFUL company!! The products ROCK!  Last night after dinner we had strawberries, bananas, and blue berries and Dark Chocolate Velata! YUMMMMMY! It was so good, and I don’t normally like dark chocolate! My personal Favorite is the Caramel Milk Chocolate.. IT IS TO DIE FOR!  Tastes like melted Rolos! So good! 🙂 🙂  Speaking of Velata, I HIT SHOOTING STAR!!!! What that means is I sold $500 or more in the first 15 days I was selling it!  WOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOO!!!! How fun is that?! I now get to buy a SHOOTING STAR ENHANCEMENT KIT at a GREAT deal and get AMAZING products! PLUS I get a charm for my Bracelet! WOOT! 🙂   I was pretty excited!!!!!!

Anyways….

So I have been dark headed my WHOLE life! Medium Brown hair. BORING!  I started coloring it when I was like in Junior High or something.. I was pretty young.  Usually a shade of red.. The brighter, the better..  A few years ago I went from dark red to platinum blonde! 🙂  I ABSOLUTELY loved it! It was a BLAST and I felt like I ROCKED it! LOL!!!! I truly did! HA!  Well, now I am starting to go lighter again! 🙂  I started last month.. a Friend of mine who is a hair stylist bleached it for me in highlights.. Just went back last week and did more… Next, I will go all over blonde. LOL! 🙂  It’s just too much fun!!!!! I LOVE IT! 🙂  And everyone knows I love a BIG change in appearance! I like the shock value when you change up your looks. LOL!!!! Always have! I get my hair cut Tuesday… I LOVE getting my hair cut.. I’ve been growing it out for some time.. It seems to be growing SUPER DUPER slow this time around though! AUGH!  I definitely want to grow it longer… But maybe just one side.. I may end up cutting part of it this week.. LOL! We’ll see what happens when I get there and in the chair!   Anyways!

Well, I guess that’s it for now!  I hope y’all are doing GREAT, and I hope y’all have a FABULOUS week!!!!! I know I will! 🙂

Hey Folks! What’s going on? I am just watching TV and catching up here…  I have another post I’ve been working on for almost a week now. LOL! I’ll finish that one eventually! LOL! Oh well!

This has been a pretty good week and week and weekend!  Work went well..  Same old stuff, just different days… I’ve sold a little Scentsy… Had a lot of Jude time… and some friend time!   Can’t beat that, can ya!? Monday night I went to a friends house and watched Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring… I recently bought all three at Ralphs. I don’t think I’ve EVER had that much fun watching LOTR. LOL!!!  We decided we should be on the old show, Mystery Science Theater 3000.  We talked, laughed, ate popcorn, sang… LOL! LOL! 🙂 Now we have to find time to watch the other two.  I can’t wait! 🙂

LOTR1

 

This weekend was GREAT! Last night Jude and I ate HOMEPLATE DINER (DELICIOUS!) Today we slept incredibly LATE, then got up, got ready and picked up my niece and then went to the Science Spectrum…  We watched Dinosaur Passage to Pangaea.  It was Claymation.. Which made Kel and I die laughing at first, but it was also pretty funny, and cute.  Jude LOVED it, of course!!!!  After the movie, we played at the Science Spectrum for awhile before going to eat at Rosas! 🙂  It was a Wonderful day!!!!!

Me & Kel

 

 

So I told y’all I bought the Naked 2 Palette…  Well, it’s literally ALL I’ve worn EVERY day since I bought it! LOL!  My Mom even uses it!  It’s so versatile! You can create SO many different looks with it! I am absolutely IN LOVE!!!!!!!  The first is pretty similar to the 2nd, so I need to get the 3rd! 🙂  It’s more pinky colors! Looks Beautiful!

I’ve found a perfume I’m currently in love with…. I’m telling you.. It’s AMAZING. I just have a rollerball, and it doesn’t last long… So I need to get the bottle now.  It’s the Ralph Lauren Big Pony Pink….  Seriously AMAZING! Sweet and flirty….  I’m in love! 🙂  you should definitely check it out!  Ralph Lauren #2 Pink, the sensual fragrance. A Floriental Fruity with the key ingredients of Cranberry & Tonka Mousse, this fragrance is for an alluring flirt with a romantic spirit. Playful and irresistible, this modern woman follows her heart… and she just might break yours. The eye-catching pink bottle is complemented by a green oversized polo pony icon opposite a cool blue number 2.

Did y’all notice in the picture above that I’m growing out my hair!?  Luckily my hair grows FAST!!  It’s still in the in-between phase, but won’t be for long.  At least all of my spikes have grown out! LOL! That’s the worst part! WHEW!  Probably in the next couple of months it will be grown out where I want it! 🙂  I’m excited and ready!  I’m also ready to change the color!  I am pretty bored with my natural color.  I tried a new one that was supposed to kind of lighten it, but it really did NOTHING to it! 😦  I’m trying to get my oldest sister to agree to helping pull it threw a cap and throw on some bleach and who knows what else! 🙂 Guess we’ll see what happens!

 

Anyways…..

I guess that’s it for now!  I hope y’all have a WONDERFUL Sunday!!!! 🙂  Go to church and have a wonderful day!

Sorry I’m So Boring! :)

Hey Guys!  What’s going on?  I am just sitting here watching a Hallmark Christmas Movie!!!  I am watching “A Very Merry Mix-Up”! So far, it’s pretty cheesy…  But isn’t that the point?! LOL!! I watched “Snow Bride” earlier, and I really liked that one!

Anyways!  Did y’all have a good weekend?!  I did!!  Spent a lot of time with Jude.  Friday night our church had the annual Women’s Pajama Party.  I NEVER miss it, but this year I chose to just stay home with Jude. We grabbed dinner, ran some errands, and went to the East side to pick up my HUGE Scentsy order from the UPS Center. 🙂  Saturday, Jude and I woke up and went to get Donuts, delivered some Scentsy, and just hung out at home all day long!! We were pretty lazy!!!! 🙂 Today we went to church, then lunch with the family, and that’s it! LAZY, LAZY, LAZY! LOL! My niece stayed with us for a few hours too, so we played outside, painted, colored pictures, etc.   So all in all, a pretty NON productive weekend, but got to spend it with my family and that’s pretty awesome to me!

I’m so excited for CHRISTMAS!!! 🙂  I’ve already started shopping!!!!  I have several items bought already, several coming in this week! EEEEEEK!  I really wanna wrap what I DO have! HAHA! I just might do it this week. Now we just need to put up the TREE!!

CHRISTMASTREEEEEE

ChristmasPresents

 

 

I keep trying to make out a Christmas list for myself, but I just can’t decide that I need/want anything! LOL!!! Isn’t that crazy?  If there’s anything I really want, I usually just buy it for myself! HAHA!  My family definitely knows they can’t go wrong with make up or perfumes… 🙂  Those are ALWAYS good.  Or Money and gift cards! But other than that, I REALLY can’t think of anything! SIGH! Oh well!

So my Scentsy is going REALLY well!!!!  I added a new team member to VELATA Thursday, I have a woman joining Saturday to join Grace Adele, and another friend joining tomorrow to sell Scentsy!!!!!!! I AM SO LOVING THIS COMPANY!  I have never in my life had so much fun “working” before!  It’s not like work at all…  You most definitely have to work it if you want to see results, but it’s FUN work!  I love meeting new people and supporting all the people on our team and EVERYTHING!  It’s just SUCH A blast!  I also got my BIGGEST Scentsy paycheck to date this week! AUGH! 🙂  It’s definitely helping me do some things that needed to get done! It will be gone probably by tomorrow, but HEY!  At least I’m getting stuff done! LOL!!!!!!! This weekend I have a Christmas Extravaganza, and then that night I have a  PARTY! December I have two events already… It’s going to be BUSY!  But I know it’s going to be AMAZING! 🙂  My BIG goal is to hit Director by December 31st! Who thinks I can do it??? 🙂  I SERIOUSLY have the BEST team ever, so I KNOW we can do it! 🙂

Grace Adele ROCKS and right now it’s ROCKIN even more! They’re doing a 12 Days Of Giving sale… EVERY day except Saturdays, they have MAJOR products at a MAJOR sale price!  So far, tomorrow is my favorite! If you look at my website it won’t reflect the prices until midnight PST.   But man! There’s some GREAT stuff on sale tomorrow!! EEEEEEK! Go to my website and click on the 12 Days Of Giving Sale.. It shows each day what we have going on! 🙂 Click HERE to check it ALL out!
