On a personal note...Father's Day

Dad is always that one man that will always be in your life. Other men come and go but he is there in your life forever. My dad is another person who had a lot of influence over me and taught me a lot of things. It was crazy when I started to get an allowance, he had me tracking my finances. I'm thinking "What do I need this for? All I buy is candy and barbie stuff!!" But it was a valuable lesson I needed to learn and I'm grateful for that. I knew how to put money away to save and track how much I was spending. I was able to save over $4000 for my first car which I couldn't believe that I did. He was always reading to me and teaching me things about life and how to survive in the real world. I can be shy sometimes but I remember my dad would always send me into the fast food restaurant to order our food. I used to hate going inside but it taught me how to talk to people and not be so shy. I didn't understand why at that time but I do now. I guess that's the thing with parents. They teach you things they know you will need in life. They know you won't understand it at first but know you will need it in life. My dad really stressed the importance of a good education and to strive for success. He wanted me to successful and great at whatever I was destined to do in life. He was always there for support and someone to talk to. He also taught me that I needed to be independent and stand on my own but if I needed help, not be afraid to ask for it. He stressed the importance of just always learning new things and challenging yourself. My dad loves being a grandfather, its a new role he has taken on. My son has another male figure to look up to because I always admired my dad. He always worked hard to provide for his family and be there. I thank my dad for all the lessons he has taught me, I'm still learning some of them but I'm grateful for the knowledge I have.

Another father that is special is my boyfriend. He has taken this father role and ran with it. I love watching him interact with our son. My son is always talking about daddy and loves guy time. He is setting such a good example for our son and I'm glad that he is in our life. I couldn't of asked for a better father for my child. I know when we decide to have more, they are going to love him just like he is so loved now. We both stepped into parenthood not knowing what to expect and we are doing a really good job. They do say that boys are Mommas boys but I think he's Daddy's Boy more. Daddy is his best friend and I'm just Mommy lol!

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there!! Hope you enjoy your day!!

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…
