On a personal note.....

I looked at the calendar and realized it is exactly a week until I turn 30!! I'm starting to feel a little better about leaving my 20's but I'm trying to savor every last moment of them! I had some really great times in my 20's but I honestly wish that my 10 Year High School reunion happened. I graduated in 2002 and back then I was thinking where I would be in 10 years. I thought it would be so cool to see how everyone turned out in 10 years. I got excited as it was starting to come up on the 10 year mark. I often joked that I just wanted to go so I could laugh at those who didn't really like me in high school. Who was I to think that I would be better off than others? When it became 2012,  I was ready, I was trying to figure how I was going to wear my hair, what I was going to wear, who I was going to see and it got cancelled. Not enough people purchased tickets. I was waiting for enough money to afford them. I was working at the time but I was paying for daycare, diapers, wipes, food, bills and so on. So then some people in my class got together and tried to get the reunion together and at that time, I was let go from my job and searching but I really wanted to go. Once again, no one was buying tickets and it was cancelled. My boyfriend was saying that social media kinda ruins things like that. You can see what everyone is up to on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. It's sad that we kinda don't have person to person interaction as much anymore. Everyone always has a phone, computer or tablet to their face. I was kinda disappointed we couldn't get it together but honestly, I was afraid to go. In high school, I had a small group of "friends" and people really didn't like me too much. I was in the band and a cheerleader. And I honest did run my mouth too much and talk about people. I tried to be something I wasn't. I honestly didn't think that anyone would want to see me there anyway. Plus, I wasn't where I thought I would be career wise and just not happy with my life at the time in general. So I thought people would be laughing at me...still. It always got to me when I would here that someone didn't like me, someone was talking about me, there were rumors about me. I thought I was a nice person and fun to be around. But I'm starting to come from behind what I've been hiding behind and starting to realize who I really am. I hope that we can have some kind of reunion in the near future.


  1. I'm sorry to hear your HS reunion got cancelled, I have to agree with your bf too Social Media basically ruins the thrill of how is everybody now. In my news feed they don't miss a day to post what they had for lunch or what they did over the weekend. I have to admit I used to be like that, I would post everything on my online profiles until I realized how I am making it easy for identity thieves to get info about me! So now if my friends do really want to know about me, we need to meet for lunch or coffee to catch up! Advance Happy Birthday girl and welcome to the club =) it's not that bad but yeh I went thru a phase like yours too as I look back in my 20's *sigh* those were the days huh?!

    1. Thanks for stopping by Jackie! Thanks for the early birthday wishes. The more I think about it, it's not that bad because I still look so young lol! It is sad to not have a lot of personal interaction anymore.

Happily Ever Johnson: 3 Months To Go!

*Que screaming and running around like a crazy person*  I can't believe we are three months away from the big day!! It seems like yesterday we just got engaged and started making plans and now it is almost here. I'm not freaking out yet (Lies, I am on the inside lol). I just want to make sure we don't forget anything lol. It seems like it is so easy to forget something when just about everything is going on. I'm getting into the swing of things in my new position and most of my focus seems to be there at the moment but I'm making sure to keep up with everything. I recently met with my coordinators (aka My mom,aunts and cousins) to preview the centerpieces. I'm so thankful for them stepping in and helping with the decor and planning. I'll give you guys a sneak peek at the centerpieces but you won't see the full effect of everything until after the big day.

Of course I drew my inspiration from Pinterest. I have spent so many hours on there and found so m…

Spring Fashion Trends

For many years I would say that I'm going to NYFW and then forget when it is lol! One day I'm going to make it there lol! Speaking of fashion, today I'm going to share a few Spring Fashion trends that I will most likely be wearing this season. (Images taken from the web)
Vibrant Stripes
I love wearing bright and bold colors when it gets warmer outside. This trend is super fun and such a statement. You can wear this in the office with a bold striped button up or out on the town with a maxi dress. 

One Shoulder
I really think this trend is super cute and flirty. I have seen many versions of the one should trend over the years and this one seems to be my favorite. I would probably wear this with a top or dress. 

Slogan T-Shirts
I know these have been around forever and this trend to me will never go out of style. There are so many slogans out there, it is hard to keep up with all of them. I do have a few myself and I love how you can dress them up or down.

This is anothe…
