On a personal note.....Birthday Edition

Well, its past midnight and officially my birthday. I'm not 30 until 11:11am according to my mom, lol! I was so scared at the thought of turning 30 and leaving my 20s. I had some really great times in my 20s. I got to experience the college life and meet all kinds of new and interesting people, been out in the real world working and trying to find my way, became a mom and just experienced a lot out there. I don't like that fact of getting older but things can only get better hopefully from here. Plus, I still look so young so I can get away with not looking older anyway lol. But I'm just happy to see 30 and have what I do have in my life. I know that I really need to get it together and push to get to where I thought I would be at 30. I believe that I have grown up a lot and have been learning from all the mistakes I've been making. I think I know better about most situations and just have more sense. I hope 30 brings new and exciting things into my life and just continue to grow and learn about life.


  1. Happy birthday pretty!
    You don't look like you just hit all!
    Best wishes, hugs!

  2. These milestone birthdays seem so difficult. But as a woman that has more than a decade on you, I can tell you that it is all what you make it. Women in their 30-40s are more self assured. We know what we want and how to get it. We are done playing foolish games that seem to be so popular with younger women and we don't need to take other women down to feel empowered. You are beautifully, gloriously you! Embrace your 30s for all they are worth. I really enjoyed my 30s and I am sure you will love yours as well. Happy birthday doll. I hope it's a grand one!

    1. Thank you so much Shalunya! I'm feeling much better about being 30 now, things can only get better from here!

  3. Hope you had a fabulous birthday! You certainly don't look a day past 25. Plus age is just a number. You're as old as how you feel. Xo

    1. Thanks Rhondine, I did have a great birthday.

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…
