So.. about life.

I have to say.. Im a horrible friend to this dear blog. I should really nurture and love it more than I have in the past. Please accept my apology.

So i need to write down what I want.. For now and for later.

I really love fashion- Ive been slowly gathering (over the past 4 years), fabric samples and patterns in hopes that I will be able to find time to create a clothing/accessory line. I just get side tracked so easily and dont make time for things I love doing (such as this). Im sick of it. I just hate half assing something Im passionate about. I feel if Im going to do it- might as well do it right the first time and give it my all. So, since I dont have the time to give it my all- I just dont do anything about it. Ugh. Im sick of it! Well here are things I love and WILL make time for.. Soon.

I will buy old tables and chairs and refurnish them.
I will finish all my photo projects Ive started.
I will to create the best play list ever.Also One for all my moods:1 sappy love 2. thug nasty hip hop 3. dance all night 4. cant help but smile 5. Oldies but Goodies
I will create my clothing line and sell my threads online and in flea markets.
I will buy a lil house and paint, redo it and make it ScREaM Crystal Gail.
I will go to Hair school.
I want to serve a mission for the LDS church.
I will volunteer for the Peace Corps/or someother international service organization.

I need to go to my room and sit there until I come up with a solid plan for all of this. There is more- but these are my short term.. ugh.. goals?

Well, now that Im thinking about it- here is the idea of my home I want.. This wont be for my first house- but my 'dream' house and Land..

I want to have a southern Plantation Style home with a wrap around porch. The porch will start at the bottom level of the house and wrap around and spiral to the roof (does that make sense?).
I dont want my house to be too big or too small-3500 sq feet would be perfect.

I will have 20+ acres of land. I'll have rows of fruit trees, a garden that will produce most of the vegetables and herbs Ill need, chickens (for eggs and meat), cows, goats, horses, dogs, and birds.

Ill have a barn in the back with a rope swing.

For the most part I want to be self sufficient. I dont want to have to worry about what has been fed or injected into the foods I eat. I dont want to have to worry about not being able to eat tomoatoes because they have been contaminated or sprayed with pesticides. I dont want to have to depend on someone else to feed me or my family.

Ah.. I can see all this now.

So Another thing Ive been thinking about (since I started going off on this dream life).. I want my kids to grow up a lot like I did. My parents had money to buy us things, but they never gave us anything that we didnt NEED. They taught us to work hard for what we want in life and to save up for it. They didnt buy me my first car, they didnt pay for my fuel to drive around town in, they didnt buy me a cell phone at the age of 12 and I know they arent going to put a down payment on my first house.

Im glad. I work hard and dont take advantage of anything I have. I feel I understand the meaning of a dollar. I know I have great work ethic and have had to teach myself how to save for what I want and prioritize what I buy (Im still learning and working on this one). But some of the people I have met dont understand this-- its so sad.
ANyhow. I want my kids to grow up as I did.. And to be encouraged to have imaginations and play pretend. To play board games- NOT video games.
I keep losing my thought process.. Im done with this.

Heres one for the team

Doin the Riviera thang

So Lifes great. It rALLY raLLy is. I find myself going and hanging out with people other than my cat, brother and sister in law. Thats how you know I found people that really matter to me. I used to find myself hanging with a bunch of lameos- people that wouldnt bring ANYTHING to the table.. pretty much a bunch of parasites. Now im chillin and spillin with some cool kids.. Thank you to them and their mothers.

And my dearest nephew Reese Bennett come out this last weekend. it was SOO chill! We went swimming, played games,scat-boarded, floated the rivski.. painted the town on Skeet. I loved it.

Kruit In the Butte

So today my sweet friend Jonathan got hom from his Alabamian mission! I was soo excited to see him! This kid and I were really good friends before he left. His momma called me last night as I was in class to let me know that she was putting together a BBQ for when he was to return home.

I freakin tried to get off work early, but got put on some crazy business. I had hella work todo and it was coming close to time for me to leave. Well I left 2 hours later than planned, but when I got over there it was SOO worth the wait. It was like he had never left! He came up and gave me the biggest hug. We stood and joked and laughed for a while, then friends and family started to come so I sat and just ate (for the 3rd time in the last 2 hours). Then I chatted with his family for a bit and took off.

It was SOO good to see him and his family again. Im excited and cant wait to actually hang out with him again soon! YES!

Nort Da Kotah Eh?

YES!!! SO I was sitting at work and thinking of my chitins, when I got the BRILLIANT idea to check out plane ticket prices. Found a cheap one, booked it- and there I was.. In good ol' ND once again 4th of July weekend. It was awesome.

I was able to surprise my sisters and nieces and nephews with my presence. THey all loved it. I loved it!

There was a street dance, KTM Cycle Hut motorcycle show, live bands, bar hopping aka the DD for my friends, firework popping, kids in the street all hours, river going, chitlin hangin out with.. Oh man. I went the whole 9 this trip around. I loved it!

At the river my niece McKenna dropped part of her PB& good ol J sammich on her foot.. Seconds later I look over to her sucking her foot clean of the goooop. It was awesome. She DOES take after her aunt Crittle!

Skkeeeett? Is that you? are you ALRIGHT?!!

SOO, a few days breaking in the new Skeet, I figure Ill let others test drive his Horse power so they can be even MORE impressed with him..So Tyler (a gent I work with) and Laurie (a gal at work), take Skeet out.. Realize He is more than just a pretty white paint job and shiny new exhaust. They love him. Then Jaz comes out talking to her hubby Brenton, who wants a scooter.. And I offer her a test drive.. She reluctantly jumps on the beast and throws the gas on.. Oh theres bushes, and a tree. and a curb.. Shell stop.. Shell stop.. wait.. shes not stopping. nope- The bushes will stop her.NOPE.over the bushes and curb. Tyler, Laurie and I are just standing there with our mouths gaped open, legs crossed (trying not to pee our pants), and minds just BOGGLED by what had just happened. Skeet finally decides to stop after spinning sideways in the parking lot for a bit. Im laughing SOO hard I can hardly stand up. Jaz picks her self off the floor and starts apologizing. I cant help put bust out laughing. This truly is the BEST thing I have seen in a while! hha.. So after we pick my sweet lil Skeet up and dust him and Jaz off, I hear something *pppsssssss*.. yeah my tire popped and the rim is bent. there are a few scratches and bends Im sure. But it was worth the show! waahha.. I wish I could have recorded it! ohh man.. well pictures will be posted. Yes.


So Im soo pumped! I bought a friggin scooter!! and named him Skeet. So me and Em are soo good and are starting a club. Everyone is invited. IF You have a scoot. So i love my lil beast to death. ME and Trey my lil babe take him out of the town during lunch. Its amazing.. Our sweet hair blowing in the wind! YES!!

Crystal and The Chipmunks? Catchy.

So Ive decided to try and join Alvin and make some money off my ridiculous look. I got my friggin wisdom teeth pulled and yes- I look hotter than EVER. I have been just a wreck the past couple weeks. Ive gone to the hospital twice in one week and the Dentist twice. I found I have/had a staph infection in my leg (YESH!!), got a root canal on Weds and then my wisdom teeth pulled on Friday. But- Im sure my medical problems are over, at least at this time! GGRREEEATT!
