On a personal note.....

I think I have embraced my new age of 30 now, I'm over the initial fear I had about leaving my 20's. But I'm still like trying to figure out my life. I had to stop by the store on day and when I got back in the car, I just broke down. Things were just going all kinds of crazy that week. My current employer is making one too many changes and it affects my position. Plus I'm only part time for now and this job market is crazy, it's so hard trying to find something, let alone get into an interview. And I just want to be able to support my family and be stable. I'm grateful for having a roof over my head, even though I'm still at home, I have a job and clothes on my back. I've been struggling to learn patience. I'm always trying to rush everything and I need to let go of the wheel because I am not in control. Things happen for a reason and I know that things will get better, I will get where I need to be, but not on my time. I just have to keep pushing and keep myself motivated that I can cross the finish line and overcome this setback!

One year, I will get to New York Fashion Week!
I will be starting the squat challenge again, I will finish it lol!
I have no problems leaving the house with no makeup on!


  1. Set backs are what makes us stronger as we persevere through them. I always remember a quote: "You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice that you have."
    Keep pushing on will all be worth it. (I give myself this same pep talk all the time when things become a little unbearable)

    Have a wonderful day xo

    1. Thank you so much for the encouragement! I really appreciate it! That is a good quote to know and go by!

Happily Ever Johnson:Tastings and Things

The countdown to this wedding is getting real. April is around the corner and the big day will be here soon! I have starting stressing about the small details and hoping we have everything. We got to do the fun stuff recently, food tasting! I know that was the thing we were both looking forward to. We first had our food tasting at the venue. You were able to bring family members to the tasting and you got to experience the full service during the reception and everything on the menu. I liked that everyone was given a paper with a description of all the menu items so you knew what you were eating and take notes about each dish. I found it helpful to have some other people with us so you got an idea of what the majority of guest would like and different opinions about each dish. We narrowed down what dishes we wanted on our menu and they were all so good!

My son was super exciting to do the cake tasting with us! He just wanted lemon cake and wanted us to have lemon…

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…

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…
