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.

Book Review: Dreams Are Built Overnight

Can't believe my birthday is next week, next Monday to be exact! I just want to have a nice, relaxing day. Today I am bringing you another book review (I know, two in one week lol)!

I have to say, I really proud of this guy and everything that he is doing now. I actually went to elementary school with David and he was a pretty cool person(and still is lol). Before this book, he started a company called Sleep Is 4 Suckers which sells apparel with a message behind it. David also expanded into motivational speaking and is a pretty dynamic speaker. I really wanted to support him and read this book because I was really drawn to the title of it.

I honestly did not want to put this book down when I started reading it. I read this book every free moment I had because I really wanted this information to sink in. You can really visualize what David is saying in this book and really picture the message he sharing. He really does drop a lot of amazing knowledge, tips and advice in this book.

Happily Ever Johnson: Registries, Rings and Things

It is crazy how fast this wedding is approaching! I can't believe it is almost February and June will be here before we know it! We have done so much with wedding planning and trying to make sure we have everything covered. First we started with finishing our registries. We started them but it just didn't feel complete. Earlier this month we attended a Sip and Scan event at Macy's. They had representatives from different brands such as Mikasa, Kitchen Aid and All Clad to answer any questions about products and to help you pick out the things you would like to put on your registry. They had a DJ there, passed hors o'derves and mocktails.

Here we are with the scanner having registry fun lol

We didn't have our formal or everyday dinnerware on the registry and finally picked those out. It was hard trying to decide what to go with. For everyday, I was looking for something that was durable since we have a 5 year old and dishware that was going to last. For our formal di…
